Ted Nugent slams Stevie Wonder over Florida boycott

The outspoken rocker Ted Nugent has replied to Stevie Wonder’s boycott of the state of Florida. Nugent expressed his thoughts on the  boycott during a radio interview.

“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. Are you kidding me?

After the jury in the Trayvon Martin case was reached, and it was a not guilty verdict, Stevie Wonder decided to boycott the state of Florida. His primary reason for doing so is because of the controversial “stand your ground” law that is in effect in the state.

The stand your ground law was used by the defence in the case. And that law kept George Zimmerman from being convicted of any wrongdoing in the death of Martin.

Nugent has long been a conservative commentator in his spare time. His comments about Obama and other politicians have been less than flattering. He’s a lifelong “militant” supporter of the National Rifle Association.

Most of Nugent’s commentary involves the topic of the Second Amendment to the Constitution. The rocker has long been a vocal advocate for gun rights, so when someone challenges his viewpoint, he’ll quickly bash them.

So it’s no wonder that Nugent went after Stevie over his boycott. A month after Mr. Wonder started his boycott, he broke it by visiting Florida.
