When I think of obnoxiously radical pro-gun trolls who delight in killing rare and spectacular animals for fun while routinely popping off with NRA slogans thinner than the bumpers stickers on which they're printed, the first name that comes to mind is aging rocker and Vietnam draft-dodger Ted Nugent. Of course. When I think of people who have fought against racism and in support of civil rights more than anyone else, the last person I think of is also Ted Nugent.
But Nugent doesn't see it that way. In fact, he sees it the opposite way.
Last week, Nugent declared himself to be "anti-racist." Yes, anti-racist. No only that, but he's so anti-racist that we "would be hard pressed... to find someone who has fought racism more than [he has]." He wasn't joking.
