Not necessarily Newsmax. Get this qualifier at the end.
Many in Abbott's conservative base agree with Nugent's pro-gun views, as does Abbott. But Nugent's description of Obama as a "communist-nurtured, subhuman mongrel" in a January interview amounts to racism, critics say.

Why, yes, Newsmax, "mongrel" is a term commonly used by bigots to describe minorities, especially those of mixed racial ancestry.

Literary critics, presumably: "To some readers, Mr. Nugent's energetic but careless diction has laid him open to charges of being a disgusting fucking racist, charges to which his response may seem less than fully felt."
