Ted Nugent questioned the attention given to NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace and an incident involving a noose earlier this year. The rockstar has taken to Facebook to voice his political views in recent weeks. Now he’s targeting Wallace.
In the Facebook post, Nugent wrote, “A pull rope in Bubba Wallace’s garage was a major news story? But Hunter Biden isn’t?”
Wallace is the only black driver in NASCAR. In June, a noose was discovered hanging in Wallace’s garage bay by his crew members. The incident came less than two weeks after Wallace urged the sport to ban Confederate flags at its tracks and facilities.
NASCAR and the FBI launched an investigation to determine whether Wallace had been a victim of a hate crime. The investigation determined the rope was a pull string for the garage. The FBI also determined it had been fashioned into a noose in 2019 prior to Wallace being assigned the garage.
But out of the organization’s 1,684 garage stalls at 29 tracks, only 11 had a garage door pull-down rope tied in a knot, according to AL.com.
Ted Nugent Has Been Vocal on Social Media
In recent months, Nugent has been vocal about his political views on Facebook. For instance, he called former presidents’ “scamming traitors.”
In the post, he included photos of what is allegedly Barack Obama. In the photos, Obama held his hands at his waist instead of over his heart in the “Star-Spangled Banner.” The caption said, “This is where the disrespect started and grew from.”
Nugent included a photo of the former presidents before Trump. The photo listed past conflicts the U.S. engaged in while they were in office. The list is empty for Trump. But, this paints an inaccurate picture of Trump’s presidency. While there haven’t been any wars under Trump, the U.S. has been active overseas. For instance, in January 2020, the U.S. led an airstrike in Iraq that killed an Iranian commander, according to the New York Times.
Nugent is also selling an altered version of MAGA hats on the social media platform.
