Stevie Wonder’s famous boycott of Florida and Stand Your Ground laws is getting some serious push-back from the radical right.
Rocker and rabid right-wing extremist Ted Nugent slammed the music icon during a radio interview, calling him “brain-dead” and “soulless” for his Florida boycott, all while throwing around erroneous numbers about black-on-black crime in murder hotbeds like Chicago.
“So 700 black people, mostly young children and young people were slaughtered in Chicago last year by black people, and not a peep out of Stevie Wonder,” Nugent ranted. “Are you kidding me? What is this, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest? How brain-dead do you have to be? How strangled by denial, how dishonest, how cheap do you have to be to focus on a clearcut case where all the evidence, from the DOJ, from the FBI, from the entire army of investigative specialists in Florida determined that George Zimmerman acted in self-defense against a life-threatening attack by a hoodlum, dope-smoking Trayvon Martin?”
Chicago radio station K-Hits 104.3 corrected the hateful Nugent, by pointing out that Chicago suffered 506 murders in 2012, and not all of them involving black victims or assailants.
“I will pray for Stevie Wonder and all these other numb-nuts who think that Trayvon Martin’s life is more important than the tens of thousands of slaughtered blacks at the hands of blacks,” Nugent continued, adding, “How do you go from being one of the most soulful people in the world, to being absolutely soulless”
