JPFO Statement to Nugent Comments
From JPFO. February 9th, 2016
We are appalled at the insensitivity of Ted Nugent‘s recent comments on Facebook and elsewhere. The deeply anti-Semitic comments and prominent positioning of the Israeli flag imagery as a tool of anti-Semitic identification combine to leave us deeply disturbed.
Neither Jews nor the Jewish faith are inherently anti-gun. Aaron Zelman, founder of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership was far from anti-gun. While many leaders of the gun prohibition movement are Jewish there are also many leaders of the right to keep and bear arms movement that are also in fact, Jewish.
While Nugent has long been known for outrageous and offensive statements, these latest comments place Nugent clearly over the line.
"You don't have to be Jewish to fight by our side."
