Ted Nugent Has The Mic Taken From Him When He Calls Black Lives Matter ‘Punks’

 

Washed-up rock guitarist Ted Nugent got himself in a dangerous situation during an appearance at a GOP-backed rally in Centreville, Michigan.

According to WMMT, Nugent was onstage making remarks when he suddenly began attacking the Black Lives Matter Movement:

“Aren’t there any BLM punks who want to come up and harass me?”

A few moments later, a man identified as Jalen Brown walked towards the stage and asked Nugent:

“What’s wrong with Black lives Matter?”

Nugent replied:

“Black Lives don’t give a shit about Black lives, they’re standing by while Blacks are slaughtering each other.”

Nugent also said BLM was a terrorist organization.

And that was all it took for Brown to say that Nugent had crossed the line:

“As soon as he said Black Lives Matter was a terrorist organization, I took that personally.”

Brown took the microphone from Nugent and told the crowd:

“Black Lives Matter too! Black lives matter too!”

The reason for BLM, Brown told the group, is to make sure the country doesn’t forget just how badly blacks have been treated throughout history, adding:


“We’re not here by choice.”

Later, Brown told a reporter:

“I love the Constitution, I love the rights it should stand for. There are people who are taking those and misconstruing them and taking them in a different direction than what it should be.”

Nugent is known for making disgusting, racist remarks, even going so far as to suggest that he’d like to attack former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, remarking in 2007:

“Obama, he’s a piece of shit. I told him to suck on my machine gun. Hey Hillary. You might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless bitch.”

Trump Cries ‘Treason’ After Fox News Interviews A Member Of Black Lives Matter

In yet another sign that the current resident of the White House is losing what’s left of his already limited mind, Donald Trump went on an enraged Twitter meltdown when Fox News dared to interview and member of the Black Lives Matter movement.


Fox host Martha McCallum spoke with Hank Newsome, president of Greater New York Black Lives Matter, and asked him if he supported violence in support of civil rights. Newsome responded:

“Wow, it’s interesting that you would pose that question like that, because this country is built upon violence. What was the American Revolution, what’s our diplomacy across the globe?


Noting that African-Americans had seen significant gains in wealth and property ownership, Newsome added:

“I said, if this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it. All right? And I could be speaking … figuratively. I could be speaking literally. It’s a matter of interpretation.”

Trump himself does the same thing: He’ll say something, get criticized, and then say he was just kidding or didn’t mean what he said literally, and yet when a black man does the same thing, suddenly it becomes “treason,” or so the president claimed in a tweet:

Wow! Treason, sedition, and insurrection. That’s kind of interesting since groups such as the Boogaloo Boys, Proud Boys, and neo-Nazis have all called for starting a second civil war. But Trump hasn’t criticized them. Could that be because he agrees with their violent, far-right ideology?

Quite clearly, Trump is trying to run the same racist, xenophobic campaign he ran in 2016. But it doesn’t seem to be working, with every single poll showing that the overwhelming majority of voters are ready for someone who can heal the country, not further inflame things.

As we learned a long time ago, Donald Trump’s default mode is to accuse others of that which he’s guilty of. Considering that he was suspected of conspiring with Russia in 2016 to guarantee a victory, it would seem that once again Trump is engaged in classic psychological projection.
