Ted Nugent doubles down on attack of Parkland survivor David Hogg

Ted Nugent’s pro-gun attack of the student survivors of the Parkland, Florida, shooting has taken on new life.

The conservative rocker, who began his attack of the teenagers over the weekend, doubled down on WABC’s Curtis + Cosby show Monday.

“(David Hogg) has been brainwashed, it's tragic," Nugent said. “I don't think the guy can be fixed. ... This guy is a lost cause. He is consumed with hate. He is part of the problem, not the solution.”

Nugent also said Hogg and the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students are “not very educated” and “wouldn't know an AR-15 from a pterodactyl.”

On Feb. 14, 17 people were killed and 17 more were wounded when 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz entered the school and began shooting.

Hogg, as well as Emma Gonzalez, Cameron Kasky and their classmates, have emerged as powerful voices in the renewed movement for gun control.

The publicity has also come with attacks from the right, including Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who mocked Hogg for his college rejection letters.

Ingraham apologized amid a mass exodus of advertisers from her show, but Nugent defended her, calling her “a great person.”

The musician, who also serves on the NRA board, began the one-sided attack on The Joe Pags Show when he called out the student activists as “mushy brained children who have been fed lies.”

“They’re actually committing spiritual suicide because everything they recommend will cause more death and mayhem,” he said. “Guaranteed.”
