Taking to his Facebook page on Monday afternoon, legendary musician and gun rights advocate Ted Nugent posted an image of Jewish public figures under the tagline, “So who is really behind gun control?”
The post features a collage of Jews such as former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, civil rights attorney Alan Dershowitz, and both U.S. senators from California (Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer) with the Israel flag pictured in the lower left corner of each of the 12 images.
Nugent’s accompanying message reads, “ 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! Know them well. Tell every 1 you know how evil they are. Let us raise maximum hell to shut them down!”
Nugent’s remarks werecondemned by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which pointed out that the image was not created by the Detroit native, but has appeared previously on anti-Semitic websites.
