Apparently, Ted Nugent can write. In a Wednesday op-ed the Nuge penned for the bastion of truth and sensibility that is WorldNetDaily, the washed-up rocker and NRA board member compared Eric Cantor — the only Republican Jewish Congressman — to a Nazi.
In his musings, Nugent praised David Brat, the man who defeated Cantor in the Virginia GOP primary on Tuesday. Nugent, of course, had some rather unkind words for Cantor, as well.
I say we the people have had way more than enough compromise, backpedaling, Joseph Goebbels and Saul Alinsky smoke-and-mirrors politics for one generation, and I say it’s about time we go Eric Cantor on the whole gang of deceivers and liars infesting our government right now. There’s only so much decent people can take. Cantor, the Nazi in this scenario, has served on the United States Holocaust Museum Council, was endorsed by the NRA, and is a supporter of the Virginia Holocaust Museum.
Nugent is very familiar with Nazis, given his employment of Nazi rhetoric with regard to President Obama. In a January 17 interview with Guns.com, Nugent referred to the President as a “subhuman mongrel” during an anti-Communism diatribe.
You know, just like Hitler would do.
After his stunning defeat, Cantor has announced he plans to step down as House Majority Leader in July.
