Right wing rocker Ted Nugent calls gun owners the next Rosa Parks
In 2012, unhinged rocker Ted Nugent became known for racist rants which didn’t really make much sense. Regrettably, it doesn’t seem that much has changed in 2013.
“There will come a time when the gun owners of America, the law-abiding gun owners of America, will be the Rosa Parks and we will sit down on the front seat of the bus, case closed,” said the confused and surly rocker when asked how he feels about new gun laws which may be coming down the pike.
“If it comes to the actual implementation of an actual confiscatory directive from our President, then I do believe that the heroes of the law enforcement will defy this order. I do believe that there are enough soulless sheep within our government who would act on such an illegal order but I believe the powers that be at the local, state, and regional law enforcement would halt such an illegal, anti-American order,” said Nugent.
Nugent continued, “You are talking to a guy who talks to more gun owners in more heated and concerned conversations than anyone who lives. These are top notch heroes of law enforcement and military who understand this experiment in self-government and we will not let it [gun confiscation] happen, we will do it peaceful.
“But there will come a time when the gun owners of America, the law-abiding gun owners of America, will be the Rosa Parks and we will sit down on the front seat of the bus, case closed.”
If that’s Nugent’s opinion, fine, but none of it has anything to do with Rosa Parks. Right wing loons seem to enjoy using African-American heroes in their hyperbolic analogies, and they really shouldn’t. Maybe Nugent should use some of his real heroes in his rants, like the KKK or William F. Buckley. That would make for a more suitable analogy.
