You had to know that avid hunter Ted Nugent would have something to say about the Cecil the lion story. Nugent took to Facebook and upset black people, animal rights advocates and basically everyone on the left when he posted a picture of himself with a lion he killed along with this rant,
“Here is a beautiful photo of me & my band with Cecil’s greatgreat grandpa, Fernando the lion. No, they are not holding him down while I perform unnatural acts upon the helpless creature. Afterall, everybody knows lions are helpless & cute. Just fyi, this pure natural legal proper scientificaly sound necessary hunt like all hunts was pure SPORT TROPHY MEAT FUN. Every sacred preciouos part of this animal was utilized. We hired 40 people on the safari, shared the meat, claws, skull, sinew, body fluids, teeth, blood, organs, skin, hair, tongue, eyeballs & each & every hard earned resource this magnificent RENEWABLE resource provided while bringing in critical massive revenues to the local economy while making room for new lions to be born & bringing value to valuable creatures. I dare idiots everywhere to point out what was wrong about this & all hunts. Fools are as fools be. Lion baby, the other whitemeat!”
On Thursday, Nugent related the killing of Cecil the lion to the black lives matter movement.
“Cecil, the other whitemeat. Lion’s lives matter? Bullshit. Only if they are disrespected with a human name. Black lives matter? Bullshit. Apparently not in Chicago Detroit LA DC Philly Compton South Central etc etc where they are slaughtered daily with no one giving a good goddam. Sick dishonest hypocrite society PC from hell. Lions are a renewable resource. Go back to sleep.”
Most people supported Nugent’s rant, but there were a few less than kind responses. A Facebook user by the name of Jherick Montano wrote,
“Lions are endangered from over hunting you deluded f*ck. No longer a TN fan because he is obviously an idiot. His home was in a wildlife reserve for a reason. Hey ted there are 4 white rhinos left in the world, wanna hunt one? Seeing as how they are renewable ya know. Wind is renewable, solar power is renewable, an endangered species is not.”
Nugent never disappoints when it comes to his passionate rants. In a prior post he welcomed controversy saying, “Go ahead, debate me. I’ll eat your family tree & shit sawdust. Drive safely.”
Gotta love the Nuge!
