NRA board member and pro-Trump musician Ted Nugent compared Democrats to “rabid coyotes” in a Friday discussion on gun control with InfoWars host Alex Jones, adding that they should be shot on sight.
Asked by the right-wing conspiracy theorist why liberals and the left want to ban firearms, Nugent said that “evil” and “dishonesty” are traits of liberals.
“Don’t ask why. Just know that evil, dishonesty, and scam artists have always been around and that right now they’re liberal, they’re Democrat, they’re RINOs, they’re Hollywood, they’re fake news, they’re media, they’re academia, and they’re half of our government, at least,” Nugent said.
“There are rabid coyotes running around, you don’t wait till you see one to go get your gun, keep your gun handy,” he added. “And every time you see one, shoot one.”
Last week, Nugent, who was invited to the White House for a bizarre photo-op last year, accused the student survivors of February’s Parkland, Florida, shooting of having “no soul.”
