The Daily Beast reports:
NRA board member Ted Nugent has attacked Parkland’s teenage school shooting survivors-turned-gun control activists, calling them “mushy brained” and “soulless” liars. In an appearance on The Joe Pags Show late Friday, Nugent apparently forgot about his promise to stop using “hateful rhetoric” after last year’s congressional shooting in Virginia. According to Nugent, the Parkland students pushing for tighter gun laws are “poor mushy brained children who have been fed lies” and are “committing spiritual suicide.”
The Wrap reports:
Nugent also defended the NRA as “a bunch of American families who have a voice to stand up for our God-given constitutionally-guaranteed right to keep and bear arms. We have no blood on our hands.” “No NRA member have ever been involved in any mass shootings at all,” he added. The NRA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
“All you have to do now is feel sorry for the liars. You have to go against them and pray that the lies can be crushed and the liars can be silenced so that real measures can be put into place to actually save children’s lives,” Nugent said.

.@TedNugent‘s lack of self-awareness is a marvel to behold; to be that devoid of decency, compassion, & goodness—and still mount such a high horse.
Ted, you keep trolling teenage shooting survivors—and let the rest of us figure out who possesses a soul.https://t.co/sdMicF8ij1
