It’s always a bit amazing to see right wing loons like Ted Nugent issue emphatic, categorical denials that they’re prejudiced or racist in any way, then segue right into blatantly racist hate speech.

National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent claimed to be “so anti-racist” that people “would be hard pressed … to find someone who has fought racism more than [he has],” moments before suggesting that African-Americans should be profiled the same way members of a community might profile a breed of dog that was attacking children.

[…]

NUGENT: I think that typically when you see the, I don’t even remember the term they use, but the gangs of blacks lately that have been just been going down the downtown streets and breaking windows on cars. We played the Milwaukee state fair a couple years ago and these black mobs were just attacking white folks coming out of the fair. And over and over again I watch the news and here’s a rape and here’s a burglary and here’s a murder in Chicago. 29 shot. 29 blacks shot by 29 blacks. At some point you got to be afraid of black and white dogs if the Dalmatian’s doing the biting.

Ted Nugent, of course, has also been a guest more than once on the openly racist Memphis-based radio show Political Cesspool, which regularly features people like David Duke, Pat Buchanan, and a host of other white nationalist Neanderthals. His name appears on their guest list, along with quite a few other names you might recognize.

(That guest list page has now been deleted from the Political Cesspool website, by the way.)
