During a yesterday’s (March 21) edition of “The Nightly Nuge,” Ted Nugent has suggested that Russian president Vladimir Putin was forced to act in Ukraine in order to impose neutrality on Russia’s neighboring country, in the process preventing it from joining NATO to stop it from posing a threat to Russia’s national security.
“I would like to think that Putin, the murderous punk that he is, the tyrannical monster that he is, historically has to have the same security on his borders [as I do on my personal property], and when the NATO countries threaten to be right on his doorstep, he has to respond,” Nugent said.
“Let me put it in simple terms. I spoke to some real heroes, boots on the ground in the Ukraine. Ukraine is not an innocent player here. Putin is clearly a guilty player here.
“So, our prayers are with those poor families in the Ukraine who just wanted to have a semblance of quality of life and justice and good will and decency, who are now escaping with the clothes on their back to Poland and elsewhere, NATO members,” he continued.
“I don’t trust NATO, I don’t trust Putin, I don’t trust [Ukrainian president Volodymyr] Zelensky, and I sure as hell don’t trust [U.S. president] Joe Biden or the Department Of Defense,” Nugent added. “The whole hellraising about the military industrial complex I dismissed for many years; now it cannot be dismissed. These monsters are playing their games to enrich their inner core, and that’s the real horror that’s unfolding before our very eyes because of the Russian invasion of the Ukraine.”
