American rockstar Ted Nugent posts antisemitic conspiracy on Facebook

Rock musician Ted Nugent has posted an antisemitic image on Facebook showing photographs of Jewish legislators and leaders who support gun control, labelling each photo with Israeli flags including comments such as “Jew York City mayor Mikey Bloomberg”. The image is titled: “Who is really behind gun control”

In a comment on the image, Nugent wrote: “Know these punks. They hate freedom, they hate good over evil, they would deny us the basic human right to self defense & to KEEP & BEAR ARMS while many of them have tax paid hired ARMED security!”

The Anti-Defamation League responded: “Making the outrageous suggestion that Jews are behind gun control, is nothing short of conspiratorial antisemitism. Regardless of one’s views on gun control, this kind of scapegoating of an entire religious group is completely unacceptable and completely divorced from reality.”
