Ted Nugent: It’s a ‘Safe Bet’ to Assume All Criminals Are Part of ‘Plague’ of Young Black Men

Aging rocker Ted Nugent has written a new column for ultra-right wing “news” site WorldNetDaily, claiming that almost all crime in America is perpetrated by young inner city black men.

Discussing the shootings of two police officers in Ferguson, Nugent writes that “from the stories I have read on the internet, the media have made it a point not to describe the suspect or suspects the police are searching for.”

“Based on crime stats in Ferguson, it would be a safe bet to assume the two thugs the police are looking for are black males between the age of 15 and 25,” Nugent wrote. “It would also be a safe bet the two thugs being searched for were raised by a single parent, have criminal records, are high school dropouts, don’t have jobs, and are very likely to be members of a gang… Just a random Nuge hunch.”

He goes on to claim that these “Ferguson thugs” are the byproduct of the “plague of black violence that has infested our inner cities,” the root cause of which is “liberalism and their insane cult of denial.”

“It is liberalism that engineered and created the very conditions that have decimated and destroyed black American families and their communities,” Nugent asserted. “Astonishingly and regretfully, the overwhelming majority of black Americans continue to vote for the very political party that has destroyed them. It is deaf, dumb, and blind liberalism that has shoveled over $20 trillion into Fedzilla’s welfare crack programs over the past 50 years. Their big lie is that this was all done to eliminate poverty. What it really has done is waste this gargantuan pile of money while doing nothing to eliminate poverty.”
