Ted Nugent Accuses President Obama Of Engineering Black America's "Destruction"
Ted Nugent believes that he has done more for Black America than President Obama. In a column written for World Net Daily, the conservative musician named the commander in chief, and members of the democratic party , as the destructive force aimed at taking down Black people.
From the column:
With February being Black History Month, historians looking back at this timeframe studying black Americans will judge it as a complete and total disaster. And they won't blame President Bush.
Barack Obama, the guy who received roughly 93 percent of black American votes, is the clear and present engineer of the destruction of black America.
It's not all the president's fault, but the economic and social policies he endorses are destroying what is left of a once proud and strong black America.
As a MotorCity Motown guy whose gravity-defying career pivots on my intense adulation for my black musical heroes, it pains me deeply to witness this self-inflicted destructo derby. The destruction of blacks has been engineered by President Obama's party for at least the last 50 years. The New Deal was a raw deal, and The Great Society experiment didn't turn out to be so great after all. It has been an unmitigated disaster for black Americans.
Today, the unemployment rate for adult black Americans is twice that of white Americans. Teenage black unemployment is at a staggering 40 percent.
The high school drop out rate for black Americans in some inner cities is above 50 percent. Only 66 percent of black youth graduate from high school – the lowest in the country.
Nugent goes on to name the "black-on-black crime epidemic," and "single-parent" households among the issues hurting the Black community, but it's what voters have done to themselves that is truly incomprehensible. "With all this unbelievable negative information, what is more unbelievable is that black Americans continue to support Democratic politicians who have raped and plundered black America forever," he writes.
The 64-year-old credits the likes of James Brown, Little Richard, BB King, and more with launching his career, and therefore feels deeply indebted to Black people. He also plans on naming his forthcoming tour “Ted Nugent Black Power 2013.”
