(Newser) – Even as Laura Ingraham was hemorrhaging advertisers for criticizing Parkland survivors, Ted Nugent was pulling no punches on the "mushy brained children," saying their attacks on "the good law-abiding families of America" is "deep in the category of soulless. These poor children ... it hurts me to say this, but the evidence is irrefutable, they have no soul." Speaking on the Joe Pags Show on Friday, Nugent criticized "the dumbing down of America," reports USA Today, as evidenced by "children (who) can't be critical of any of the propaganda that they're fed."

Shown a clip of survivor Emma Gonzalez criticizing NRA political contributions as "blood money," Nugent said that "level of ignorance goes beyond stupidity," emphasizing the NRA as "a voice to stand up for our God-given Constitutionally-guaranteed right to keep and bear arms. We have no blood on our hands. ... So once again, this poor pathetic individual is a liar."
