Nugent compares Democratic initiatives to 9-11, Civil War, Great Depression

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

In a November 9 Washington Times op-ed, Ted Nugent wrote: "Domestically, we have gone through a bloody civil war, a catastrophic dust bowl, a Great Depression, Sept 11, 2001 and survived a number of attempts by the Democratic Party to destroy America."

Nugent also called for an end to an entitlement spending such as "Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security," stating: "If we are to save the country for future generations of Americans and ensure they have more opportunity than we do, we must address entitlement spending and address it now. Then kill it all."

From Nugent's op-ed:

Throughout our history, America has faced seemingly insurmountable domestic and international challenges.

Domestically, we have gone through a bloody civil war, a catastrophic dust bowl, a Great Depression, Sept 11, 2001 and survived a number of attempts by the Democratic Party to destroy America.

[...]

Entitlement spending, such as for the bizarre, runaway welfare, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, is the elephant in the room that no politician wants to address. If we are to save the country for future generations of Americans and ensure they have more opportunity than we do, we must address entitlement spending and address it now. Then kill it all.
