Famed rocker Ted Nugent unloaded on the concept of political correctness Thursday during a discussion tied to Verizon's recent decision to drop the Sportsman Channel from its lineup.

Nugent, who hosts "Spirit of the Wild" on the Outdoors Channel, made the comments during an appearance on TheBlaze TV's "Dana."

"Political correctness is against hunting. Political correctness, the lie, the self-inflected scourge of political correctness. The dishonesty of political correctness is against everything you and I stand for: freedom, independence, rugged-individualism, self-sufficiency, hunting, fishing, trapping, taking advantage of God's annual harvest, " Nugent told host Dana Loesch.

"We have been the number one show on Outdoor Channel all these years because we are down to Earth, we don't play games, we don't apologize," he continued. "I like killing stuff to feed my family. It's pure organic free-range protein. It's so perfect I can hardly stand myself."

Nugget then went after Verizon for dumping Sportsman Channel.

"And when Verizon drops Sportsman Channel, but keeps Al Jazeera ... Are you kidding me?" he said.

Verizon told customers that it had dropped the channel in part because of low viewership. The company noted that "similar content" was available on other channels still carried by the carrier.
