In a recent interview with WXBR AM1460 in Boston, infamous right-wing rocker Ted Nugent went a tirade about Steve Wonder’s boycott of performing in Florida after the not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, where he was accused and acquitted in the death of Trayvon Martin.
Listen to his rant above.
Here’s the quote:
You’ve got to be kidding me. So 700 black people, mostly young children and young people were slaughtered in Chicago last year by black people, and not a peep out of Stevie Wonder. Are you kidding me? What is this, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest? How brain-dead do you have to be? How strangled by denial, how dishonest, how cheap do you have to be to focus on a clearcut case where all the evidence, from the DOJ, from the FBI, from the army of investigative specialists in Florida determined that George Zimmerman acted in self-defense against a life-threatening attack by hoodlum, dope-smoking Trayvon Martin?
Nugent is well known for his tendencies to wildly thrust inflammatory ramblings into the media. Here are just a couple examples.
We sincerelypray for black America but enuf of the self indlictedracism already
