On Andrea Tantaros’ Tuesday radio show, rock star-turned-political commentator Ted Nugent accused celebrities such as Stevie Wonder, Jay-Z and Kanye West of being drug abusers and hypocrites for their declared boycott against Florida as punishment its so-called “stand your ground” law.

“When you live in a fog of denial,  and usually it is inspired by just a lifetime of substance abuse — you know with all the lies about dope being a ‘victimless crime’ — I think you’re listening to the victims of this dopey crime because their brains are fried,” the Motor City Madman replied. “They’re either fried on substance abuse, and all of them know who I’m talking about — the guilty can feel guilty and only the guilty should feel guilty. But there’s also a fog of denial when you’re surrounded by yes men all your life, where you having people picking up after you and you have people serving you.”

But Nugent, author of “Ted, White, and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto,” also asked why the celebrity boycott does not extend to Chicago as well, where 700 people are murdered annually.

“When you start bending over spiritually and intellectually to people who take care of you all day, you can pretend by boycotting a single city with a stand your ground law that somehow you don’t have to boycott Chicago, where 700 people are slaughtered every year because they’re not standing their ground,” The Nuge said. “They’re let out of their cages to create more brutal murder, and rape, and car-jackings and slaughter of innocents.”

“I really don’t know what to say, just like I handled Piers Morgan — sometimes you can’t bring truth into a liar’s life,” he added.
