As his hometown Detroit filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection last Thursday (July 18), guitarist Ted Nugent
expressed his outrage, saying that the city has been sabotaged by the liberals for decades.
In his statement for TMZ
, Motor City Madman revealed that he is "shattered but not at all surprised"
by the current situation.
"Liberal democrats took hold of the greatest, most productive city on earth and turned it into a bloodsucker excuse-making hell,"
he said. "Liberals seem to think that what Mugabe did to destroy the breadbasket of Africa in Zimbabwe is somehow a desirable model."
The Nuge pointed out that President Obama
is also to blame for the biggest city bankruptcy case in US history. "If allowed to continue, our President will do the same to the whole country,"
the axeman said. "Heartbreaking and tragic."
According to numerous reports, Detroit has been facing rough times in recent years, as it lost quarter-million residents in the past decade, hitting local business hard and causing the crime rate to increase. The city owes a hefty sum of $18 billion to creditors, with a significant part of city's debt consisting of health and pension obligations to public sector workers.
Nugent has been fairly vocal about the recent major topics, as he also adressed George Zimmerman's murder trial, defending his actions as "the purest form of self-defense there is."
