Here's what Nugent really thinks of Indians:
Ted Nugent: 'My Lifestyle…Is More In The Indian Tradition Than Many Of The Indians Themselves'
By Miranda Blue
Nugent told Beck that in fact “my lifestyle as a white guy—though I’m hard to accept that designation—is more in the Indian tradition than many of the Indians themselves.”
In response to reports that he called protesters at one of his recent shows "unclean vermin,” Nugent told Beck, “I have a spiritual blood-brother relationship with these Indians and then the left literally creates the nastiest, hateful lie they can, put quotes around words attributed to me, Glenn, claiming that I called my red brothers ‘unclean vermin,’ which I never said in my life. They created that out of whole cloth.”
Later in the interview, Nugent acknowledged that he had called the protestors “unclean vermin” but that they were “communists.”

“There’s not a tribe in this country that hasn’t invited me to their reservation to teach their children about being clean and sober, to aim small, miss small, and the history of hands-on conservation.
“I am the best friend to the Native Americans,” Nugent said.
“It doesn’t bother me on a personal level–the more idiots hate me, the better my guitar playing gets.”
"My lifestyle as a white guy ... is more in the Indian tradition than any of the Indians themselves," he says

Alas, here’s the kicker: “My lifestyle as a white guy—though I’m hard to accept that designation—is more in the Indian tradition than many of the Indians themselves.” Dear Native Americans: White guy Ted Nugent can’t be racist, because the white guy knows more about your culture than you do.
Nugent thinks of Indians as his "red brothers" and "blood brothers." His notion that he has a relationship with some five million people, all of whom are "red," is strike two.
Indeed, he thinks he's a better Indian than many of them. Which means millions of Indians are inferior at being themselves. Or simply inferior, period. Strike three and he's out.
Yep, he's a racist
But wait, it gets worse.

Nugent: American Indians Could Have Fought Off Settlers With Less "Whoopin" And "Hollerin"
By Timothy Johnson
Nugent wrote, "WE ARE ON OUR JET NOW HEADING FOR TOLEDO RIBFEST JAM AFTER AN INSANE INCREDIBLE OUT OF BODY ULTRAROCKOUT at the Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis SD! Simply astonishing gig! 4 stinkyass unclean dipshit protestors that admitted they hate me AND ALL WHITE PEOPLE THAT STOLE THEIR LAND BULLSHIT!! See, it aint me they hate, they hate all Americans that produce & live the American Dream. Simply insane!"
The protestors that Nugent attacked as "stinkyass unclean dipshit[s]" were reportedly from the United Urban Warrior Society in Rapid City, SD.
Nugent made other inflammatory comments in the discussion thread on his Facebook post. One fan wrote that "Maybe the natives shoulda had better weapons ..." to which Nugent responded, "less peyote less whoopin & hollerin."
