Ted Nugent Says Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ Law Fights Child Sex Grooming: “If You Wanna Transgender, That’s a Shame”


For those of you who don’t know, Florida recently enacted the “Parental Rights In Education” law, which has been dubbed the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law by critics. The law states that “classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards” — so basically, you cannot discuss sexual orientation or gender identification with young students. And unsurprisingly, Ted Nugent supports and defends this law.

Of course, in classic Ted fashion, it’s not just that the law is right, or has good points, it’s that it keeps young minds from “accepting evil” because it helps fight child sex trafficking and grooming. Apparently, introducing the idea to children that they could identify as a different gender, or love someone of the same gender, is a way of turning them into a sex slave — this, of course, coming from a dude who wrote a song about wanting to have sex with a 13-year-old.

Here’s Ted’s take on the law, as transcribed by Blabbermouth:

“[My wife] Shemane and I work very closely with some real commandos, some ex-special forces guys that are tracking down child sex traffickers. And there’s a term in that world of child sex trafficking and pedophilia known as ‘grooming.’ And you wanna start at a very early age to impact the undeveloped, mushy minds of youth to accept evil. And it goes right back to this whole gender control by our government, media, academia, Big Tech. These people are pure evil, and they are grooming young people to accept the most evil of controls, and that is to sway them into total slavery of power abusers like the government, like academia, to control their minds. And I don’t know what the endgame is, but it’s about control, and it’s about, if nothing else, mental and spiritual slavery of young people. That they’re not teaching reading, writing and arithmetic or history, and that they’re graduating people with high school diplomas in Philadelphia that cannot read. You can open the page of a book, you can lay a newspaper in front of them, and they can’t read but have a high school diploma.

“Our corrupt, evil, tyrannical powers that be in government, media, Big Tech, academia and Hollywood are grooming the youngest of Americans to control them in the most evil of ways, because this is the foundation of child sex trafficking, when you can destroy their identity and destroy their north spiritual compass.

“So, when we’re talking about allowing children to choose their gender… In New Jersey, I understand that parents in some jurisdictions aren’t allowed to put the gender of their child upon birth because they have to wait till the child decides later on, even though it’s clearly a boy or a girl. And now parents are fighting back because as the media and government lies through their teeth — every hour of every day — claiming that the bill in Florida is ‘Can’t Say Gay’ [sic] bill. The word ‘gay’ doesn’t exist. The bill is about giving parents the parental right, the most instinctual, clear and present parental right to guide and nurture and educate their children and avoid strangers to indoctrinate them as early as kindergarten. And they call it ‘Can’t Say Gay’ bill. Nobody ever said anybody can’t say gay. It’s about parental rights.

“So these are indicators that the media and this man Joe Biden are absolute serial liars with a very dangerous and evil agenda to twist the minds of the most precious amongst us — our own children. So Shemane and I stand up, and more and more parents are standing up. And we did a rally in Florida recently where parents are now running for school boards and they’re finding out the horrific agenda of this transgender, homosexuality. And if you wanna transgender, that’s…a shame. If you’re a homosexual, we support…your choice. But don’t you dare try to indoctrinate these innocent young children. And that’s their agenda.”

There are plenty of things that Ted says that are just stupid, or that we don’t agree with politically. This, however, is just batshit insane. Talking about sexual orientation is tantamount to grooming children as sex slaves? Meanwhile, he’s playing into the right’s current obsession with liberals as pedeophiles, which is about a half-step away from going full QAnon. Ted is obvious just a dude who thinks about children and sex a lot, and he’s defensive — but of course, we knew that from his song “Jailbait,” right?
