Ted Nugent calls media 'retards' who 'screw farm animals' weeks before TV special with Sarah Palin
Ted Nugent interviewed by KENS-TV on Feb. 18, 2014.

Conservative rocker Ted Nugent on Wednesday posted a "letter" using slurs to compare members of the media to people who have mental disabilities.


"My openletter to all the braindead hippie logic-challenged dipsh*ts in the media who dedicate their lives to hiding from truth facts history & evidence," Nugent explained on Facebook. "Read em & weep numbnuts. We pray for you."

The letter, which according Media Matters, is an Internet meme that has also caused problems for other celebrities.

"Not every retard can read, but look at you go, little buddy!" the letter states, encouraging readers to send a message of encouragement to a "f*cked up friend."

"I don't care if you lick windows, or screw farm animals," it continues. "Look at you smiling at your phone, you crayon eating motherf*cker."

Nugent is scheduled to appear on a special Jan. 29 episode of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's show on the Sportsman Channel, which also hosts the NRA's Cam & Company.

After Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel reported used the word "retard" in a private meeting with Democrats, Palin called for him to be fired.

"Just as we’d be appalled if any public figure of Rahm’s stature ever used the 'N-word' or other such inappropriate language, Rahm’s slur on all God’s children with cognitive and developmental disabilities – and the people who love them – is unacceptable, and it’s heartbreaking," Palin, whose son has Down syndrome, wrote on Facebook at the time.
