Ted Nugent Calls Trayvon Martin A Gangsta Wannabe Who Got What He Deserved
Babbling bish-made bigot and GOP goon affiliate Ted Nugent has been attention-sloring his racist rhetoric all over the media across every platform that will give him a mic in the wake of child murderer George Zimmerman’s acquittal last month, but his most recent comments might be his worst yet.

Ted Nugent, the 80’s rocker who has found a second career as right-wing flame thrower, appeared on a talk radio show in Maine on Saturday and said that Trayvon Martin, the unarmed 17 year old black Florida teen who was shot and killed last year, deserved his fate.
Nugent again referred to Martin as a “gangsta wannabe,” doubling down on comments he made in an Op-Ed he penned immediately following the acquittal of Martin’s killer George Zimmerman.
On Saturday he went further, baselessly arguing that Martin was driven by “bloodthirst,” constantly looking to “get into fights with people,” and ultimately “got justice.”
[In response], a group of protesters in New Haven, Connecticut began circulating a petition calling on the venue for one of the rocker’s upcoming shows to cancel the gig.
A protest is planned outside the venue if the concert does take place on Tuesday as scheduled.
It’s sad that “freedom of speech” gives this douchebag the right to continuously smear Trayvon’s name whenever he pleases after his parents have already been left without a son and no justice. SMH.
