Outspoken gun rights activist Ted Nugent unleashed a scathing critique of Stevie Wonder’s boycott of Florida over the state’s acquittal of George Zimmerman and “Stand Your Ground” law, and accused the old-time star of ignoring America’s true black violence problem in inner cities such as Chicago.
“So 700 black people, mostly young children and young people were slaughtered in Chicago last year by black people, and not a peep out of Stevie Wonder. Are you kidding me? What is this, ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’? How brain-dead do you have to be? How strangled by denial, how dishonest, how cheap do you have to be to focus on a clear-cut case where all the evidence, from the DOJ, from the FBI, from the army of investigative specialists in Florida determined that George Zimmerman acted in self-defense against a life-threatening attack by hoodlum, dope-smoking Trayvon Martin?”
Nugent continued by offering to say a prayer for Stevie Wonder and anyone else in the country who ignores inner city violence and instead focuses on emotionally-driven boycotts in response to well-publicized crime. In his words, he offered a prayer for “Stevie Wonder and all these other numnuts who think that Trayvon Martin’s life is more important than the tens of thousands of slaughtered blacks at the hands of blacks.”
