Ted Nugent's 'anti-Semitic' rant sparks outrage; gun owners call for NRA ouster Ben Axelson on February 11, 2016 at 11:41 AM, updated February 11, 2016 at 11:48 AM The National Rifle Association is facing mounting pressure from gun owners to distance itself from longtime board member Ted Nugent after the "Cat Scratch Fever" rocker posted shocking anti-Semitic images and messages on Facebook. On Monday, Nugent posted a photo of 12 prominent American Jews and accused them of being the driving force "behind gun control." The post called Michael Bloomberg the "Jew York City Mayor and also mentioned Sen. Chuck Schumer, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, among others. He called them "punks" and said they would "deny us the basic human right to self defense and to keep and bear arms while many of them have paid hired armed security." An Israeli flag appears next to each photo. p The image has circled in white supremacist groups for years, according to the Anti-Defamation League. In a later post, Nugent shared a photo of Nazis rounding up Jews, and described both Jews and gun control advocates as "soulless sheep to slaughter." He also described Jews who support gun control as "Nazis in disguise." He also blasted Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership after the group criticized his anti-Semitic post. Nugent's posts faced huge backlash and triggered calls of anti-Semitism, The Washington Post reported. Some regular supporters said he went too far, and many followers who agree with his pro-2nd Amendment stance called on the NRA to kick Nugent off the board. Bob Owens, editor of the pro-gun siteBearingArms.com, said many gun rights advocates are "simply done with Nugent." "They're tired of feeling that they have to defend his half-baked rhetoric and simple-minded outbursts," Owens wrote. "Many people are calling for him to resign from the NRA Board and for him to have his membership stripped from him." Owens said Nugent "owes the world a sincere apology," and has no business on the board if he can't do that. Gun owners took to the comments on Nugent's original post to register their displeasure.
