Ted Nugent says the coronavirus is a made-up pandemic and there is no racism in America. He touched on highly controversial issues on Facebook.
Ted Nugent, actual name Theodore Anthony Nugent, is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist born in 1948. However, in recent years everyone has known for his outspoken conservative politics. Nugent, who had a very successful musical career from the 1960s to the 1990s, attracted attention in the following years for his outspoken conservative political views, and his fierce advocacy of hunting and gun ownership rights. Ted Nugent, who is also a board member of the National Rifle Association and a powerful advocate of the Republican Party, again sparked controversy on social media.
Ted Nugent went live on Facebook on December 25 and talked about the coronavirus and the “so-called” racism happening in America. Ted said that this epidemic was a concoction, the vaccine was not real, and he would never have it done.
“We don’t earmark a safety net during a scamming pandemic. It’s not a real pandemic, and that’s not a real vaccine. I’m sorry. I ain’t taking no vaccine.”
In fact, this was not Ted Nugent‘s first controversial statement about the corona. He had also criticized the restrictions applied to prevent the virus before last Thanksgiving Day. Nugent, who thought that he only wanted to celebrate Thanksgiving with his family but the government was preventing this, did not hesitate to swear on the live broadcast.
“We need to escape that ugliness… not turn our back on it, because we need to raise hell and let our mayors and our governors and our senators and congressmen know: You can’t tell me how many people I have at Thanksgiving.”

In addition, Ted Nugent got reactions to what he said about “Black Lives Matter” and George Floyd.
In his opinion, there is no systemic racism in America, but there is racism in the “Black Lives Matter” protests. There are good people in America and I have never seen any of them doing racism, Ted said. He also talked about George Floyd; “George Floyd killed himself with fentanyl. He couldn’t breathe all by himself in the backseat. He fought the cops. They tried to subdue him, to maybe get him some help, and to save the community that he had thugged all his life.”
As it is known, the murder of George Floyd started the Black Lives Matter protests in America and had a great impact on the world.
