In a shocking conversation with right-wing conspiracy theorist and InfoWars host Alex Jones, aging rocker Ted Nugent compared Democrats to "rabid coyotes," even going so far as to suggest that they should be shot on sight. Nugent's disturbing thought process and beliefs were revealed during a Friday discussion with Jones, as part of an ongoing topic regarding gun control and the recent push by Democrats for new common-sense gun laws in the wake of several recent school shootings in the United States.

As The Hill reports, Alex Jones asked Ted Nugent why he believed that "liberals" want to ban firearms in the United States. Nugent responded by describing disparaging traits he linked to Democrats and liberals, including that they are "evil," "scam artists," and frequently display "dishonesty." The right-wing rocker, who reached peak success decades ago, added that at least "half of our government" is liberal, not to mention the media and American academia. Ted Nugent began his tirade by telling Jones not to ask "why" liberals want to ban guns, but to consider that people who want to do so have "always been around."

"Don't ask why. Just know that evil, dishonesty, and scam artists have always been around and that right now they're liberal, they're Democrat, they're RINOs, they're Hollywood, they're fake news, they're media, they're academia, and they're half of our government, at least."

"There are rabid coyotes running around, you don't wait till you see one to go get your gun, keep your gun handy. And every time you see one, shoot one."

In recent weeks, Ted Nugent blasted Parkland shooting survivor and common-sense gun control advocate David Hogg on conservative media. As New York Daily News reports, 69-year-old Nugent began his attack on the traumatized teen and his classmates on The Joe Page Show, where he called the Florida school shooting survivors "mushy brained children." He later doubled-down on his critical commentary by saying that Hogg had been "brainwashed," adding that the Parkland teen was "consumed with hate," and "part of the problem, not the solution."
