The Daily Caller is reporting that musician Ted Nugent and Dennis Miller had a conversation about the Zimmerman case and verdict that was beyond horrific. Offensive doesn’t even sort of cover it so be prepared! Take a listen to the audio below.
“Number one, the whole thing is a tragedy — that he was charged with any crime after all the evidence that the law enforcement professionals ascertained immediately. It was a clear-cut case of self-defense and I’m very relieved and hopeful that there is justice in America the ‘not guilty’ verdict came in because when we the people do get all the evidence, we see self-defense as the pure thing that it is. I think that the real travesty here is that the prosecutor and the judge and the whole so-called justice system was cowed and pressured by just racism personified. And a government sadly and heartbreakingly — it pains me deeply to even have to say this, but when the president and the gun-running attorney general get involved to push for a racist agenda, it’s bad for America. It puts us back. I’m 65 years old this year, Dennis, and I’ve never seen such ugly race relations since the white and black water fountains in Detroit went away. We were on an even keel. We were on the upgrade. I think racism for all practical purposes was gone five, six years ago and it’s back with a vengeance and it breaks my heart. But here’s the ultimate lesson, if everyone would take a deep breath. I hear a lot of squawking that parents go, Well, that could have been my kid, that could have been my dead child. Well, here’s a little update for you: Teach your children not to attack people, thank you very much.”
There are no words. Well no that’s not true. There are words but we’d lose our jobs if we said them.
