Ted Nugent on Twitter: If Wolf Blitzer is a journalist, I’m a ‘gay pirate from Cuba’

Responding to criticism from CNN’s Wolf Blitzer about his use of Nazi rhetoric when talking about President Barack Obama, rocker Ted Nugent lashed back  at Blitzer  today stating that, if Wolf Blitzer is a journalist, he is a ‘gay pirate from Cuba.’

According to Oliver Willis at Media Matters, Nugent is denying that he has a history of making bigoted and misogynistic comments, stating: “All the negative stuff is dishonest, all the really wonderful stuff is accurate.”

Nugent has become the focus of Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s campaign for governor in the past few days due to his colorful history and statements.

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Wolf, Blitzer wondered  if Nugent was aware that the term ‘subhuman mongrel’ can be traced to the writings of Nazi propagandist Julius Streicher who wrote: ‘The Jew is a mongrel. He has hereditary tendencies from Aryans, Asiatics, Negroes, and from the Mongolians. Evil always preponderates in the case of a mongrel.”

Today, Nugent turned to Twitter, accusing CNN and Blitzer of being “Joseph Goebbells Saul Alinsky propaganda ministry mongrels” and “freaks.”

As the Times notes, "While Democrats who control the House are focused on a swift impeachment vote by year’s end, the White House is almost entirely consumed by the trial that would follow in the Republican-controlled Senate, where Mr. Trump’s team believes he would have the chance to defend himself and where Democrats would almost certainly fall short of the two-thirds vote they would need to remove him from office."

Published

on

According to a report from Politico, Chinese diplomats have been unleashed, as well as urged, to attack Donald Trump's administration and the U.S. in general via social media like Twitter -- turning the president's favorite social media platform back on him.

"The tactic comes as China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi has reportedly urged his diplomats to adopt a 'fighting spirit,' which has led to Chinese diplomat Lijian Zhao to describe "America as 'unjust, 'inhumane' and 'hypocritical.' He’s gone so far as to slam neighborhood segregation in Washington, D.C., and assert that 'racial discrimination, gun violence, violent law enforcement are chronic diseases deeply rooted in U.S. society," Politico reports.
