Parkland Students, Others Fire Back At Ted Nugent For 'No Soul' Comments

Parkland students and teachers are firing back at musician and NRA member Ted Nugent for saying the protesting students have "no souls" during a radio interview.

On Friday during a radio interview on The Joe Pags show, Nugent called the teens who have been fighting for gun reform after 17 people were shot and killed during the school shooting "soulless," "mushy-brained" and "liars."

"The lies from these poor, mushy-brained children who have been fed lies and parrot lies," Nugent said. "The level of ignorance goes beyond stupidity. The National Rifle Association are a bunch of American families who have a voice to stand up for our God-given, constitutionally given right to keep and bear arms."

The teen activists did not remain quiet. His comments angered many of the Parkland students, including Cameron Kasky. Kasky took to Twitter in response to Nugent's comments and said he better apologize.

"If only he saw all the tears. If only he had to look into the eyes I've looked into. If only he saw what this did to all of us. And here the NRA is, receiving more fear-based donations than ever. Talk about 'no soul.' This guy better apologize. Seriously," Kasky wrote.

David Hogg didn't use his own words to slam the 69-year-old but re-tweeted Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand, who tweeted at NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch to contradict Nugent.

"Longtime @NRA Board member Ted Nugent just said this about Parkland gun violence survivors: "These poor children, I'm afraid to say this and it hurts me to say this, but the evidence is irrefutable, they have no soul." Waiting for you to contradict him," tweeted Watts.

Parkland teacher Mike Marino didn't call out Nugent directly but quoted John Lennon in his tweet.

""All you need is love" - John Lennon #ItsReallySimple #Peace #OnlyLoveCanDoThat #NeverAgain #MSDStrong," tweeted Marino.

This isn't the first time Parkland students have been criticized for their stance on gun control. Pennsylvania Republican Senator Rick Santorum was slammed for his comments by Parkland students after he suggested that CPR classes would serve a better purpose rather than protesting for stricter gun laws.
