A few days ago, while speaking to Observer, Ozzy Osbourne made it known that he was returning to the United Kingdom from his current home in Los Angeles because of his exhaustion with gun violence.
“I’m fed up with people getting killed every day. God knows how many people have been shot in school shootings. And there was that mass shooting in Vegas at that concert … it’s fucking crazy.”
He also noted that he simply doesn’t want to die in the United States because he’s English. Apparently—much like abortion, trans people and liberals—Ted Nugent has an issue with Ozzy’s desires and with the state of Los Angeles in general. Specifically, The Nuge has an issue with the homeless population of Los Angeles. On his YouTube show, The Nightly Nuge, the musician was asked about a proposed policy to house homeless people in Los Angeles hotels.
Nugent’s response (via Blabbermouth) was just as shitty and predictable as you’d expect from a guy who’s traded musical talent for hot takes.
“Even my friend Ozzy Osbourne is getting the hell out of Los Angeles because he’d rather live in a tyrant England than in a shooting zone that is orchestrated — a shooting zone, a murder capital that is orchestrated by the court system, the district attorney, the prosecuting attorneys of L.A. county.”
The Nuge clarifies that he really likes Los Angeles—he just feels so strongly about the homeless population and violence that he doesn’t go anymore.
“[My wife] Shemane and I, we have the time of our lives when we go to Los Angeles. I haven’t been there in a number of years because I just don’t go to hellholes. I just don’t go to high-crime murder zones where you have to sidestep feces and needles in the streets and you see people defecating right there on the sidewalk. And I don’t mean rarely — I mean it’s becoming standard operating procedure.”
Instead of offering any solutions to the homelessness crisis or even just shutting his mouth, Nugent continued his rant and involved God, the Constitution and the Democratic party, blaming socialism and conveniently forgetting about the Republican Party.
“So it’s another manifestation of a cultural abandonment, cultural deprivation that is orchestrated glaringly obviously by the Democrat party and all their cronies. This is a left-wing, socialist, mindless Satanic agenda that celebrates indecency, cruelty, crime, dangerous conditions. They celebrate dangerous conditions while the best of the best are now abandoning California and New York and Illinois and New Jersey. Good hard-working, conscientious, moral families that are in the asset column of those jurisdictions, they’re leaving. People are moving to Texas and to South Dakota under the great [governor] Kristi Noem. The good families of conscience, God, family, country, Constitution, Bill Of Rights, Ten Commandments, Golden Rule, work ethic, law and order, that quality of life mantra is guiding conscientious families to get the hell out of the feces, needles, exploding violent crime rates and now where their tax dollars are gonna be torched even further and they’re gonna house homeless, dangerous, most of them paroled, dangerous criminals into hotel rooms at our expense. Just like the insanity of me having to pay for some guy that smokes dope and snorts cocaine and drinks Starbucks and has piercings and tattoos, I’ve gotta pay for his student loan? It’s Planet of the Apes out there.”
Two takeaways here: Nugent doesn’t know what socialism is (big surprise) and Ozzy needs better friends.
