TED NUGENT Calls Parkland's Student-Activists Liars: 'They Have No Soul'

March 31, 2018

Outspoken conservative rocker Ted Nugent has slammed Parkland's teenage school shooting survivors-turned-gun control activists, claiming there is "irrefutable" evidence that "they have no soul."

In a radio interview Friday with fellow conservative Joe Pagliarulo on the host's talk show, "The Joe Pags Show", the 69-year-old musician, who who sits on the National Rifle Association's board, blasted what he calls "the poor, mushy brained children," who organized the recent March For Our Lives protests, part of a nationwide series of demonstrations to call for legislative action on gun control.

"The dumbing down of America is manifested in the culture deprivation of our academia that have taught these kids the lies, media that have prodded and encouraged and provided these kids lies," Nugent said (hear audio below). "I really feel sorry for them because it's not only ignorant and dangerously stupid, but it's soulless."

He added: "To attack the good law-abiding families of America when well-known predictable murderers commit these horrors is deep in the category of soulless. These poor children, I'm afraid to say this and it hurts me to say this, but the evidence is irrefutable, they have no soul... These children can't be critical of any of the propaganda that they're fed and that's just sad."

Ted also defended the NRA after Pagliarulo played a clip of Emma Gonzalez, one of the march organizers, speaking to CNN about politicians accepting "blood money" from the gun rights organization.

"The level of ignorance goes beyond stupidity," Nugent said. "Again, the National Rifle Association are a bunch of American families who have a voice to stand up for our God-given, Constitutionally-guaranteed right to keep and bear arms. We have no blood on our hands. No NRA member have ever been involved in any mass shootings at all, in fact the National Rifle Association is the lone organization that has taught firearm safety in schools, and for law enforcement, and for military, and for children's organizations and family organizations around the country for 100 years. So once again, this poor pathetic individual is a liar."

He added: "All you have to do now is feel sorry for the liars. You have to go against them and pray that the lies can be crushed and the liars can be silenced so that real measures can be put into place to actually save children's lives."

The March For Our Lives was led by Gonzalez and other survivors of last month's massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in which 17 people died.

Nugent, who once said then-Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama should "suck my machine gun," vowed to tone down his rhetoric after last year's shooting at a congressional baseball practice, claiming that he decided to be "more selective with my rants and in my words." He said in a June 2017 interview: "I encourage even my friends-slash-enemies on the left, in the Democrat and liberal world, that we have got to be civil to each other. I'm not going to engage in that kind of hateful rhetoric anymore."
