VIDEO: Petition asks NRA to remove Ted Nugent from its board for ‘overtly racist’ comments

In the wake of rocker Ted Nugent’s string of racially inflammatory comments about the Trayvon Martin case, a gun control group is petitioning the NRA to remove the musician and right wing activist from its board of directors.

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, a group comprised of 47 individual organizations promoting gun control laws, claims that Nugent is intentionally stoking racial divisions and does a disservice to the NRA’s history.

“The NRA likes to bill itself as the ‘oldest civil rights organization in the United States,’ the petition read. “If they want to wear that mantle it’s time for them to walk the walk and end their relationship with Ted Nugent immediately.”

According to the CSGV’s Communications Director, the petition has over 1,600 signatures as of this Thursday morning. “For us, the impetus for this was that we all felt that Nugent was going into, even for himself, new a darker territory with [his rhetoric],” Ladd Everitt said. “This constant stream of quotes has been just so overtly racist. It really calls into why [the NRA] allows this man to sit on their board.”

Nugent has made numerous questionable remarks in the wake of the Travyon Martin case, calling the 17 year-old a “dope-smoking, racist gangsta wannabe,” and writing in the conspiracy theory-promoting World Net Daily that Martin was a “gangsta wannabe Skittles hoodie boy.”

Speaking to Alex Jones on July 16th, Nugent claimed that racism against African Americans is a “dirty lie,” going on to say that “black mobs” are guilty of “the worst racism since the Klan.”

    He is an insult to culture, and moraes, and what We as a nation are supposed to be proud of.He is an illiterate, violent, animal abuser, draft dodging, incontenint, diarrhea’d, bigot. he never adds anything even close to literate or educated to any writings, so why is he promoted? He is less than nothing.He is a speck of dried feces on satans toilet bowl.

    Ted Nugent is completely full of crap. I listened to his interview and all I can say is… He’s dead wrong. In his travels he sees what he wants to see but there is something else out there that he fails to see… REALITY!!!!

    The NRA is not going to pay any attention to this petition. They’re likely to say that it only proves what a great patriot he is, after all, he’s just a good ol’ boy, putting them n****rs in their place as God intended.

    Like Nugent deserved a seat on a board of an organization that wants to be seen as anything but a total ass-clown before he made these particular remarks…. If the NRA has to be petitioned to jettison this idiot they’re fully as despicable as I thought.

    Ted ‘Poopy Pants’ Nugent is from Michigan and he prances around in Confederate clothing and cowboys hats. He’s not only a loser, he’s a poser..

    Ted Nugent is a disgrace to the human race! He spews his vile hatred and bigotry and for anyone to support him is just as disgraceful! This racism and he needs to be stopped and imprisoned! His hatred for the POTUS is treasonous!

    Racism against blacks doesn’t exist? This guy is the most clueless person in America. What do you call Tea Party posters depicting Obama as a witch doctor with a bone through his nose if not racist? Get a clue and a life Nooge the stooge.

    Rednecks support Ted Nugent because they think that if he can is wealthy-ish and used to be famous, then one day their white trash ways could make them rich and famous.

    This is the only reason that Duck Dynasty show ever made it to TV. But its a good example of why you don’t give money and choices to hillbillies.

    Yes, his rhetoric is disgraceful and disgusting, but he has the right to say it, even if he hates the President, this is America, not Iran.

    So what you’re saying is that the hatred being spewed by the New Black Panther Party is the same as Nooge the Stooge. What’s your point? On a side note, I didn’t know there was a New Black Panter Party, I saw like 3 guys protesting something, but I didn’t see a party.

    I’ve watched every laborer job and skilled trades affected by it here in michigan.
    We have the largest muslim comunity here in dearborn. And watched every gas satation here bevome owened by the them.
    My family and many others have fought against there home lands .

    . Freedom of speech ! And guess what that was the state flag for ? Georgia?
    See its ok to riot when your black. Its ok to hurt innocent white people because they are white during riots? O I see. And I think about every race at some point has been a slave. Over the thousand years of mankind.
    I think the flag is cool!
    Maybe the color black or hoodies are offensive to me. Maybe looking at some bodys ass because they refuse to pull up there pants is offesive to me. Maybe a all black college found is offesive to me . Maybe mexicans with out I.d. who take my jobs are offensive to me.

    I don’t owe any race or religon anything! !
    And the secound ammendment is there to make sure some idiot doesn’t make me.
    I think that flag is cool.
    Not my probblem what it means to you.
