Ted Nugent: Obama Saying The N-Word Means White People Can Now Freely Say ‘Ni**er’

Ted Nugent has penned a new column for right-wing “news” site World Net Daily, asserting that President Obama’s use of the N-word on Marc Maron’s podcast means white people now have the go-ahead to use the word.

“For those who have chosen terminal denial and have completely lost touch with the real world, the word n****r has historically been used in a powerfully positive way when describing the proud heritage and history of deeply respected, even revered ‘blackness,’” Nugent wrote.

“The word is used constantly across America in a friendly, even tribal greeting and salutation with no hint whatsoever of negativity nor hostility,” Nugent continued, adding that those in an “Honest Society” can use the word in a “non-threatening, non-racist way.”

“Along with President Obama and my hero Richard Pryor, we join Howard Stern, Johnny Cochran, Mark Furman, O.J. Simpson, Kid Rock, James Brown, the mighty Funkbrothers, Al not so Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, Malcom X, Kanye West, Fifty Cent and pretty much every black rapper and hip hopper on earth, Chris Rock, Eddie Murphy, a few thousand NBA, NFL, MLB sports stars, legions of famous and not so famous musicians, actors, politicians, media personalities and assorted celebrities of every color, creed, ethnicity and walk of life, along with a few million others around the world who have used and continue to use the word n****r at one time or another,” Nugent asserted.

It would be “foolish and dishonest” to call the N-word a racial slur, Nugent concluded. “

“Until we as a people break free from the shackles of political correctness and honestly admit that words and context have meaning, we will continue to focus on nonsensical symbolism instead of meaningful upgrade,” he wrote. “I for one would rather save lives, not worry about hurt feelings.”
