After another year of misogyny, vile comments, and racism Ted Nugent is reelected to the NRA board of directors. Go figure.

Courtesy of Media Matters: 

Ted Nugent was reelected to the National Rifle Association’s board of directors just weeks after he promoted a fake video of Hillary Clinton being shot and during a year in which he caused a national controversy for promoting anti-Semitic material. 

During a May 21 meeting of members at the NRA's annual meeting in Louisville, KY, NRA election committee chairman Carl T. Rowan announced that Nugent was one of 25 individuals elected to a three-year term on the NRA's board, terminating in 2019. Nugent received the second most votes.

Media Matters then very helpfully lays out some of the "highlights" of Nugent's year so far: 

In January, Nugent called for Obama and Hillary Clinton to be hanged for treason for their supposed malfeasance during the 2012 Benghazi terror attacks. 

Nugent caused widespread controversy in February after sharing an image on his Facebook page that suggested Jews are behind a conspiracy to enact stricter gun laws. After coming under fire from the Anti-Defamation League and other groups, Nugent further claimed that Jewish supporters of gun safety laws are “Nazis in disguise.” As condemnations continued to roll in, even from far-right pro-gun organizations (but not the NRA), Nugent eventually apologized, claiming he did not realize the image he shared that placed Israeli flags next to faces of 12 Jewish American politicians and gun violence prevention advocates had a "connection whatsoever to any religious affiliation." 

In March, Nugent called a critic with a Hispanic name a "beanochimp" and suggested the man should die. 

Later that same month, Nugent shared a misogynist chain message about why men supposedly prefer guns over women, which included claims like "guns function normally every day of the month” and “A gun doesn't mind if you go to sleep after you use it.” 

On March 31, Nugent posted a racially derogatory image on his Facebook page that he said was an advertisement for a moving company called "2 niggers and a stolen truck." 

In a May 10 post to his Facebook page, Nugent shared a fake video that showed Hillary Clinton being graphically shot to death by Bernie Sanders. He added his own comment: “I got your guncontrol right here bitch!”

You know actually I think that some of this might just have been Nugent campaigning for reelection to the board. 

After all it certainly did not seem to hurt his chances.

    What a vile man, and the NRA just embraces him as a normal red-blooded American man. If I ever decided to own a gun, the NRA would be the last place I'd turn to for education or anything else. And frankly, is these creeps are somehow tax-exempt, I want the IRS on their case, as well as the FBI.

      My husband and I own and shoot weapons, We would never ever join the NRA because of their politics and who they have representing them.

    Agree 1:36, Tax Exempt?
    Talk about entitlements. Also the churches, (can you believe Scientology gets these breaks) what a scam. There are so so many, just keeping it short.
    They bitch about someone getting food stamps, rent control and just about anything to do with educating those that need it desperately.
    Damn with all the money we can collect from these con organizations, we could really work on some of that and knock down a little of our debt.

      President Obama has not taken their guns away either but I think that the gun-loving idiots still think he will.
