Ted Nugent Claims The Whole Cecil The Lion Story Is A Lie And People Are Stupid For Being Upset

The gun-lovin' over-the-hill rocker took to Facebook to rail against those angry about the illegal killing of a well-known lion in Africa.

Raise your hand if you just knew that the one person who was going to take American dentist Walter Palmer’s side regarding his involvement in the killing of beloved African lion Cecil would be Ted Nugent. On Tuesday, the draft-dodging trophy hunting proponent responded to a Facebook query from a fan asking him his thoughts on the controversy over Palmer’s actions earlier this month. True to form, the ‘Wang Dang, Sweet Poontang’ auteur stated that the whole story was a lie and that people who are outraged are “stupid”.

Below is a screengrab from his Facebook page:



It would seem that Ted is the one who doesn’t have all the facts. He seems to be making the claim that Cecil, who was collared and protected by a national park in Zimbabwe, was a “wild lion” who deserved to get killed due to it being “ESSENTIAL”. However, two local hunters have already been arrested and charged with poaching in regards to the illegal kill and Zimbabwean officials have identified Palmer as the one who paid these locals $50,000 to help him bag a lion for his trophy room.

Cecil was a 13-year-old protected lion who was being studied by conservationists and scientists, which is why he was living in the national park and wearing a collar with a GPS device. (Something the hunters tried to destroy after they killed him.) But, you know, that really doesn’t matter to Teddy boy. Any chance to toss insults at animal-loving, pussy-ass libtards makes The Nuge a happy dude.

On the flip side, based on the almost universal hate Palmer has received for paying tens of thousands of dollars to kill a national treasure, it seems safe to say that Nugent is not going to endear himself to, well, pretty much anyone.

    Ted Nugent is just a clueless white male desperately overcompensating for the fact that men like him are becoming more irrelevant with each passing day.

    Fuck you.

    This is really where the “stupid people are stupid” argument becomes the reverse of argumentum ad populum. Instead of a position being thought true because lots of people believe it, it’s the assertion that a position must be false because people are too stupid to go for it. You see it in education. Everyone ought to go to school and get educated. Oh, but the poor are too stupid, they don’t want to go to school, waaaah! You see it with crime and punishment. Everyone ought to follow the law or accept the consequences thereof. Oh, but some people don’t like the law, they want to do what they want, why not let them? Waaaaah! You see it with religion. People ought to closely examine their beliefs and only believe things for which there is significant objective evidence. Oh, but religion makes people feeeeeel better! You can’t expect them to be rational! Waaaaaah!

    Yes I can and I do and I think society ought to do the same. We’re headed for a major disaster on this planet when there are too many stupid people who think the world owes them a living. They don’t have to do anything, the government will put food on the table and a big screen in the living room and all they have to do to get more is whine. However, they’re wrong. Stupid people are the enemy. Lazy people are the enemy. They ought to be scorned and looked down on, we ought to do everything we can to wipe out stupid people. The only way our society will survive, much less thrive, is to raise the bar and make stupid people claw their way up to it, not the other way around.

    I’m tired of stupidity. Who is with me?
