Ted Nugent wants to give Kyle Rittenhouse a lifetime supply of ammunition
Ted Nugent has said he wants to give acquitted assailant Kyle Rittenhouse a lifetime stockpile of ammunition and start a gun training course on his behalf.
This is what the veteran singer and guitarist relayed in a new episode of Rock of Nations with Dave Kinchen.
Rittenhouse is the Illinois teenager who last year used a semi-automatic rifle to fatally shoot two people and injure another during the racial unrest that followed the police shooting at Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Rittenhouse was cleared of all charges in court last week, setting a disturbing legal precedent for the unauthorized use of violence against protesters.
Nugent is the staunchly conservative 72-year-old musician behind 1970s rock stompers such as “Stranglehold” and “Cat Scratch Fever”. He recently published the pro-gun rally cry “Come and take it”.
Nugent explained on the podcast, “I’m going to get my hands on Kyle Rittenhouse and supply him with life-time ammo, and I’d love to start Kyle Rittenhouse’s tactical master class because as a young man, The Boy he did good. He knew this weapon. He was a samurai as a teenager and in these incredible, traumatic and physically aggressive conditions he did his job. “
The support echoes what the Nuge has expressed in other recent discussions. He said Newsmax, “This guy, this 17-year-old, was exactly what the Founding Fathers wanted all Americans to be – stand up, good versus evil. Kyle Rittenhouse, good. Rioters and thugs and muggers and muggers and career criminals, wrong.”
In the press surrounding the Nov. 12 arrival of “Come and Take It,” the singer said it was “right for me to unleash the All-American fight anthem from us people to the punks who dare step on us. .… Come and take it at your own risk. ” Nugent, who lost a TV sponsor earlier this year over racism accusations, has a new album soon called Detroit Muscle.
Last week, activist rockers Rage Against the Machine reacted against Rittenhouse’s verdict. They said the gunman “killed people who were fighting for racial justice. He claimed self-defense.”
Rage called it “the logic of the settlers of America’s founding myth: whiteness must present itself as the victim in order to justify its violence against those who resist its oppression. Welcome to the land of the free, home of the brave.”
