Uh Oh, Nugent Lets Slip Ethnic Slur At Tea Party Event
This time, it’s “Japs”, as in how America “crushed the evil of Japs and Nazis.” The Nuge was speaking to the Big Horn Basin Tea Party in Wymong about how that great government that once defeated evil has now “turned on us.”
NUGENT: I know I’m speaking your language. I know nothing I’ve said surprises you except maybe the insane depth of this self-inflicted curse of apathy. We have bent over since World War II because we couldn’t believe that good — the universally celebrated good of America crushed the universally understood evil of Japs and Nazis. We couldn’t believe that that government that represented us in good over evil could possibly turn on us. They’ve turned on us. They’ve literally turned on us, ranchers being arrested because of gerbils on their range or some families arrested because the EPA claims they are building a barn on a wetland where for 200 years of satellite documentation, no moisture.
