Right-wing rocker and NRA board member Ted Nugent posted a bizarre and, what some would say, anti-semitic rant to his Facebook page claiming that Jewish leaders are trying to take his guns away.

The chart contains pictures of prominent Jewish leaders with tiny Israeli flags in the left corner of each portrait.

The grammatically-atrocious caption read:

“Know these punks. [sic] They hate freedom, they hate good over evil, they would deny us the basic human right to self defense & to KEEP & BEAR ARMS while many of them have tax paid hired ARMED security! Know them well. Tell every1 you know how evil they are. Let us raise maximum hell to shut them down!”

According to Right Wing Watch, the  prominent leaders include:

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.); Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.); Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.); Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.); Sen. Mark Levin (D-Mich.); Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.); Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel; former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg; attorney and pundit Alan Dershowitz; Boston developer John Rosenthal, who founded the group Stop Handgun Violence; Dan Gross, President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence; and Max Nacheman, the former executive director of CeaseFire PA.

Of course, this gave some of Ted’s fans the opportunity to openly voice their opinions about Jews:
