From CNN: "Last month... [Ted] Nugent referred the President as a 'sub-human mongrel.'" Coming from one of the National Rifle Association's loudest advocates, does this contribute to stereotypes that NRA members are closed-minded and/or racist?

  • Yes It Does

    I believe when people like Ted Nugent refer to the President of the United States as a, "sub-human mongrel," it does contribute to the stereotypes that NRA members are closed-minded and/or racist. Name calling, to me, is a pretty low form of speech and it doesn't really advance a persons perspective. I don't have much respect for the NRA when all their going to do is sit around calling people names because they don't agree with a politicians policies.

  • Card-carrying NRA members are "rednecks"

    Members of the NRA are crazy gun-fanatics who claim that gun violence is okay because "it's the right to bear arms." This fits the definition of a"redneck." Who are rednecks? Extreme right-wing, close-minded, ignorant, Honey-Boo-Boo-family type, pig heads. Ted Nugent calling Obama a sub-human Mongrel is a blatant, racist ad hominem against Barack Obama. It definitely shows the kind of mentality this people have.

  • Ted Nugent's description of the NRA President is Correct

    Ted Nugent describes the NRA president as a "sub-human mongrel". The NRA president does not have the human races best interest in mind. The NRA feels like everyone should have a gun and or have access to a gun and that we do not need gun control laws . There is a need for very strict gun control laws for the safety and well being of the men, woman and children of the United States.

  • Of course it does

    While it is important to keep in mind that most gun members aren't as stupid as Ted Nugent, there are some pretty clear racist undertones in the NRA and he's far from the only supporter of it that thinks Barack Obama is a secret Kenyan Muslim. The NRA is a group that even gun owners should be pretty wary of.

  • Wrong? Yes. Racist? Not even close.

    The idea that we assume that the comment had any race merit based off the fact the aggressor was white and the recipient of the name calling was not white, is plain lunacy.

    This is no way to speak to any human. The color of the skin plays no issue in what he said. Nugent used a term that is demeaning to anyone of any race, lets not make this a race thing when it never was.

  • The idea is fallacous

    It's a common Fallacy. A is not the sum of it's part. You can NOT generalize an entire group of millions of American by what one guy said. Especially since what he said was neither close-minded or racist. He didn't bring up race at all. If you generalized an entire group by what one man did, you are the closed minded one.

  • CNN The President

    I personally think that this does not contribute to the stereotype that NRA members are closed-minded and/or racist. The NRA and its members are rarely vocal on any topics but guns. They are not out there making rap music that is anti-police and anti-woman or anti-white. Ted Nugent, an individual, has always been an outspoken person. He speaks for himself only.

  • Ted Nugent speaks for himself only and does not contribute to any stereotype.

Did Ted Nugent direct a clearly racist remark against Obama? If not, was his language towards Obama intended by him to be racist? Or is he angry at Obama's policies and presidency?
If the answers to the first two questions are yes, then Ted Nugent is a racist and the NRA should denounce this guy. If the answers to the first two questions are no, and the answer to the third question is yes, then the liberals must be working extra hard to paint anyone who opposes Obama (who's half-white) as a racist.
