You probably already know that Ted Nugent attacked the John Roberts health care decision in an op-ed for The Washington Times, in which Nugent wrote this:
Because our legislative, judicial and executive branches of government hold the 10th Amendment in contempt, I’m beginning to wonder if it would have been best had the South won the Civil War.Wow -- is that racist?
I'm sure you think so. Ahhh, but you're wrong, for one surprising reason:
Ted Nugent is black!
Don't believe me? Just ask him!
Moderator:I gather there's more along those lines in this video, but it's been taken down, alas.
Do you believe the Republican Party is trying to be inclusive? Do you believe it should?
Absolutely, absolutely! They have accepted Ted Nugent — what more do you want? I'm a huge, crazed black man from Detroit — they love me!
--from an ABC News live chat held at the time of the 2000 Republican convention
"I am the funniest black man in America since Richard Pryor caught on fire."
--from a 2010 interview
"Tell Larry The Cable Guy I'm the funniest black man around."
--Nugent to standup comic PJ Walsh, as quoted on Walsh's Facebook page
He also called himself "a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally" after he was criticized (and contacted by the Secret Service) for recent inflammatory anti-Obama remarks.
So see? He wouldn't have derived racial benefit from a Southern victory in the Civil War! He's African-American!
Or so he keeps telling us, rather obsessively.
