In a shocking, yet not surprising comment given his political leanings, ‘70s rocker Ted Nugent, after the Supreme Court’s controversial ruling on health care, said that it would have been better if the South had won the Civil War.
A long time outspoken critic of the President Obama, the Michigan rocker wrote a scathing editorial in the conservative leaning Washington Times, he suggests that the growth of federal power is an unfortunate result of the North winning the Civil War.
He writes: “Because our legislative, judicial and executive branches of government hold the 10th Amendment in contempt, I’m beginning to wonder if it would have been best had the South won the Civil War. Our Founding Fathers’ concept of limited government is dead.”
Just when you thought racism was simmering down, especially in a field as accepting as music, here it is again rearing ugly head yet again.
