Ted Nugent Says He Isn't Hate Speech, YOU'RE The Hate Speech!
This weekend, we were treated to a number of charming statements about the Parkland survivors from people who, by all rights, should be obscure cultural footnotes in the year 2018, but somehow are not.
Frank Stallone, Sylvester Stallone's brother that we all forgot existed, posted a thing on Twitter about how much he imagined David Hogg's peers would like to punch him in the face.
He later apologized for that.
Also, too, NRA board member and mediocre-at-very-best musician Ted Nugent said that the Parkland survivors had no souls.
The dumbing down of America is manifested in the culture deprivation of our academia that have taught these kids the lies, media that have prodded and encouraged and provided these kids lies. I really feel sorry for them because it’s not only ignorant and dangerously stupid, but it’s soulless. To attack the good law-abiding families of America when well known predictable murderers commit these horrors is deep in the category of soulless. These poor children, I’m afraid to say this and it hurts me to say this, but the evidence is irrefutable, they have no soul.
But, unlike the slightly classier Frank Stallone, he will not be apologizing! Because those students did hate speech to him first!
In a rather incoherent video posted to Facebook, Nugent complained that the internet totally ruined his "firestorm of guitar solo magic" by thinking that was an asshole thing to say.
