WASHINGTON -- The National Rifle Association came under increasing pressure Tuesday to distance itself from longtime NRA board member Ted Nugent, after he posted photos of prominent Jewish Americans who he claimed were "really behind gun control."
The photos are overlaid with Israeli flags and anti-Semitic labels. For instance, the image of the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) is captioned "Gave Russian Jew Immigrants your tax money," while former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is tagged as "Jew York City mayor Mikey Bloomberg, Nanny State trouble maker and 9/11 Israeli agent."
The post appeared on the aging rocker's Facebook page on Monday.
