Rocker Ted Nugent says the Florida students calling for gun control have “no soul” and are “mushy brained children.” He made the comments Friday while defending the National Rifle Association as a guest on the Joe Pags Show, a nationally syndicated conservative radio program.
“I really feel sorry for them because it’s not only ignorant and dangerously stupid, but it’s soulless,” Nugent said during an appearance on “The Joe Pags Show.” “To attack the good, law-abiding families of America when well-known, predictable murderers commit these horrors is deep in the category of soulless.”
“These poor children, I’m afraid to say this and it hurts me to say this, but the evidence is irrefutable, they have no soul,” he added.
In the interview, Nugent railed against what he called the “dumbing down of America” by schools and teachers, whom he accused of teaching students “lies.”
“The dumbing down of America is manifested in the culture deprivation of our academia that have taught these kids the lies, media that have prodded and encouraged and provided these kids lies,” he said.
A representative for the 69-year-old Nugent did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Nugent made the comments the same day several advertisers dropped Fox News personality Laura Ingraham after she mocked David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland shooting, online. The Atlantis, Paradise Island resort; Office Depot, Jenny Craig, Hulu, Nutrish, TripAdvisor, Expedia, Wayfair, StitchFix, Nestlé and Johnson & Johnson said they would pull ads from her show.
She announced Friday she would be taking a vacation to celebrate Easter with her family. A Fox News spokesperson said the vacation was pre-planned.
