Rocker and freedom patriot Ted Nugent recently did an interview and claimed the Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg is ‘so brainwashed’ he can’t ‘be fixed’.
Nugent, who is a National Rifle Association board member, did the interview with WABC’s Curtis and Cosby show. It came three days later after the rocker went after the gun-control activists, calling them ‘mushy brained children’ who have ‘no souls’.
‘(David Hogg) has been brainwashed, it’s tragic,’ Nugent said. ‘I don’t think the guy can be fixed. … This guy is a lost cause. He is consumed with hate. He is part of the problem, not the solution.’
In his latest interview Nugent claimed Hogg and the other survivor gun-control activists aren’t very educated and ‘wouldn’t know an AR-15 from a pterodactyl’.
Daily Mail: Nugent isn’t the only one to criticize Hogg. Fox News’ Laura Ingraham called Hogg out on Twitter last week when the teen complained about being denied by four of the colleges he had applied to.
That tweet landed Ingraham in hot water, with more than a dozen companies pulling their advertisements from her show.
She eventually apologized for her remarks, but Hogg has refused to accept her apology.
On Friday, Ingraham announced that she was going on vacation for the week of Easter, throwing her place on the network into question.
Nugent stood by Ingraham in his interview on Monday, saying he thought her comments were ‘in line’.
‘I think Laura Ingraham is a great person,’ Nugent said. ‘This Hogg guy had gone off the rails, and spewing the hate, and missing the whole point on how to make schools safe. So I think Laura was in line.’
The rocker said it didn’t bother him if he received backlash for supporting Ingraham.
‘I don’t have a worry in my brain,’ he said. ‘I’ll let the dominoes fall where they may.’
Hogg has yet to respond to Nugent’s latest comments. But after Nugent’s first interview on Friday, some Parkland students spoke out against the rocker, saying he hasn’t seen ‘the tears’ they’ve shed and they want an apology.
In his first interview about the Parkland students, on the Joe Pags Show on Friday, Nugent said the Parkland survivors were wrong to blame the NRA for mass shootings citing that most members come from good American families.
The rocker specifically called out Hogg and fellow survivor Emma Gonzalez for spreading ‘100 per cent lies and falsehoods’ about the NRA.
He went on to say that ‘the evidence is irrefutable, they have no soul’.
‘They are actually committing spiritual suicide because everything they recommend will cause more death and mayhem, guaranteed,’ Nugent said.
He blamed the students education as well as the mainstream media for the ideas they have spread about the NRA.
‘The dumbing down of America is manifested in the cultural deprivation of our academia that have taught these kids the lies, media that have prodded and encouraged and provided these kids lies,’ he said.
‘I really feel sorry for them because it’s not only ignorant and dangerously stupid, but it’s also soulless.’
