Rocker Ted Nugent Says Rittenhouse Trial Shows U.S. ‘Cultural Abandonment’
According to rock and roll superstar and Second Amendment advocate Ted Nugent recently stated that the case against Kyle Rittenhouse was even brought to trial reveals that America has forgotten its culture.
”That this court case even exists is a manifestation of cultural abandonment in America,” Nugent went on to say during the Thursday episode of ”Eric Bolling: The Balance.”
A jury is deliberating the charges against Rittenhouse, who was 17 in 2020 when he fired an AR-15 at three men in a confrontation at a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, killing two and wounding one. Rittenhouse is white, as were the three men he shot.
Rittenhouse has claimed self-defense, saying the men attacked him, and that he and others were there to protect property from looting and vandalism, which had occurred at other such protests that summer.
Nugent said court testimony showed Rittenhouse clearly within his rights.
”This guy, this young 17-year-old kid, was exactly what the Founding Fathers wanted all Americans to be — to stand up [for] good over evil,” Nugent stated during his interview with host Eric Bolling. ”Kyle Rittenhouse, I’m sending him a lifetime supply of good ammo.”
Nugent then stated that never before in the history of our country has it become more important than to uphold the right to keep and bear arms.
”And that’s all that Kyle Rittenhouse was doing,” he remarked.
He’s absolutely right. This is one of our most fundamental rights. That of self-protection. The left wants you to believe you have no right to protect yourself and that if their foot soldiers come after you, then you deserve what’s happening and that they have the right to do whatever they want to you.
That, of course, is not true.
