Michigan Republicans thank ‘Uncle Ted’ Nugent for testifying after he says their state ‘doesn’t qualify as America’

Republican lawmakers in Michigan invited conservative rocker Ted Nugent to testify even though he has said the state “doesn’t qualify as America.”

In testimony on the Michigan state House floor on Tuesday, Nugent spoke in support of a bill that would reverse a ban on deer and elk baiting. The ban was put in place in 2018 due to suspicions that chronic wasting disease (CWD) was being spread through piles of bait.

For his part, Nugent argued that the ban was ineffective because deer are “swapping spit.”

“If they think they can stop deer from swapping spit, they’re idiots,” Nugent testified, according to The Detroit News.

At the conclusion of his testimony, Republican state Rep. Jason Sheppard reportedly thanked “Uncle Ted” for appearing.

In July, Nugent told conservative host Laura Ingraham that Michigan “don’t even qualify as America anymore.”

“I was born in Detroit. You know Laura, Michigan was the arsenal of democracy,” Nugent opined. “But unfortunately it’s turned into a suburb of San Francisco now politically and it just breaks my heart.”

“California, Oregon, Washington, Michigan, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts — politically, those states don’t even qualify as America anymore. It’s just heartbreaking.”

“The Republicans are selling their souls to the devil and disgracing themselves to maintain their seats in Congress,” Dozier wrote in the South Florida Times. "Many of these Republicans are confessed Christians, who are violating the tenets of their religion in the support of President Trump."

OANN anchor goes down in flames for reporting Christopher Columbus saved natives with Christianity

Published

One America News Network anchor Liz Wheeler took on history this week when she suggested that Christopher Columbus actually ended atrocities against Native Americans by bringing Christianity to America.

In a series of eye-popping tweets on Monday, Wheeler decided to celebrate Columbus Day by whitewashing the explorer's legacy.

"Christopher Columbus didn't commit genocide," she wrote. "Within 200 years of Columbus's arrival, 95% of the 20M Native Americans died... from disease. Smallpox, flu, tuberculosis, malaria, plague, measles, cholera."

"Tragic, definitely. But mass murder by Columbus? Not even close," Wheeler added.
