Ted Nugent compares himself to Rosa Parks as he tries to sell autographs

Right-wing rocker Ted Nugent this week compared himself to civil rights icon Rosa Parks for his refusal to wear a mask to stop the spread of COVID-19.

While most mask mandates were lifted a long time ago, Nugent spoke out against them as he tried to sell his autographed “I Won’t Comply” merchandise during an appearance on Real America’s Voice.

“What a beautiful statement, ‘I will not comply.’ I’m like Rosa Parks with a Glock,” he said. “You’re trying to give me a stupid, immoral, absurd, arbitrary, capricious, punitive mandate mask, and I won’t comply.”

PatriotTakes, which monitors right-wing media, posted the clip:

Nugent has a habit of summoning Parks during his right-wing screeds. In 2019, he blasted a Michigan law that banned deer and elk baiting, and called it a “Rosa Parks moment” when hunters refused to comply, according to the Detroit Free Press. And in 2013, amid reports that then-President Barack Obama might issue an executive order to help reduce gun violence, Nugent also made the comparison.

“There will come a time when the gun owners of America, the law-abiding gun owners, will be the Rosa Parks, and we’ll sit in the front seat of the bus, case closed. “, Nugent told World Net Daily. .

Nugent also made headlines for even more outrageous moments. In 2007, he brandished what appeared to be a pair of machine guns at a concert and said that Obama ― then still a senator and presidential candidate ― could “suck my machine gun” and that Hillary Clinton, also a senator and presidential candidate, could “ride one of them at sunset”.
