Rock star Ted Nugent penned an op-ed in which he states that for his courageous comments on the reality of illegal immigration, Donald Trump actually deserves the Medal of Freedom.
“Instead of being condemned and lampooned by the likes of Ari Fleischer and his ilk,” Nugent wrote, “Donald Trump should be given the Medal of Freedom for speaking his mind in such a bold, honest and straight-forward manner.”
Fleischer recently compared Trump to a car accident, saying “Everybody pulls over to see the mess.”
Nugent counters that the real mess has been caused by establishment politicians.
“If you want to watch a real political train wreck, witness a real mess in progress, you need look no further than the professional politicians who have borrowed and spent this country into oblivion,” he wrote.
He further explained to these establishment politicians why exactly, Trump’s comments that are being portrayed as ‘controversial’ are resulting in higher poll numbers than his GOP opponents.
“Donald Trump’s message sings to Americans because he doesn’t play politically correct brain-dead games. He calls them like he sees them. That’s refreshing to millions of Americans who believe political correctness is a public cancer that has eroded free speech and everything else good about America.”
Everything good about America… from somebody running for office. What a novel idea.
Nugent finished up by saying the GOP should embrace Trump’s comments.
“Show some honesty or you’re done,” he concluded.
The Medal of Freedom is our country’s highest civilian honor, one bestowed upon individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States.
