Rocker Ted Nugent has weighed in on the Trayvon Martin case, repeating talking points from the pro-gun caucus painting the slain teen as an aggressor and “suspect” in his own shooting death. (Martin was unarmed, too young to even carry a weapon.)
Ted Nugent ran off at the mouth about Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman in a recent Rare.com post, saying first that Martin “attacked” shooter Zimmerman for “unknown” reasons, calling the teenager “racist” and giving an unconfirmed account of the night of the killing:
“Within seconds, the suspect has overwhelmed George, has gained the advantage on top, pinning George to the ground, and further escalates the assault to deadly force by smashing George’s face, breaking his nose, and violently slamming his skull onto the concrete with all his youthful athleticism.”
George screams frantically for help as Trayvon Martin pummels his face and head furiously, inflicting damaging and potentially life threatening wounds. Fearing for his life and about to lose consciousness at the hands of an enraged, violent attacker, George Zimmerman does what anyone who wishes to live would do, and he reaches for his concealed handgun, firing a single shot to neutralize the deadly force being wreaked upon him.
Ted Nugent delves further into fantasy land on the Trayvon Martin case as he goes on, claiming President Obama and Eric Holder conspired with Al Sharpton to… well, obviously not jail Zimmerman. He adds:
“And so it was for a few weeks until the race-baiting industry saw an opportunity to further the racist careers of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the Black Panthers.”
President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, et al, who then swept down on the Florida community refusing to admit that the 17-year-old dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe Trayvon Martin was at all responsible for his bad decisions and standard modus operendi of always taking the violent route.
Ted Nugent adds that “Martin Luther King Jr. is rolling over in his grave that he sacrificed his life for the cause of judging people by the content of their character instead of the color of their skin, as so many of his own race carry in in self-destructive behavior while professional race mongers blame everything on racism,” before he concludes that the “only racism on that night was perpetrated by Trayvon Martin, and everybody knows it.”
