Gene Simmons has been very open on his feelings about anti-vaxxers and even said at one point he wasn't 'worried if an idiot gets COVID and dies.' Also very open about his stance on COVID-19 vaccines is Ted Nugent, who had a lot to say in a recent interview regarding Simmons.

Nugent said in an appearance on the “Joe Pags Show,” “I think [Gene has] been so bombarded. Remember, he lives in Los Angeles. Number one, I love Gene Simmons — he is a great man, rock solid in the asset column. But my own brother, who also spent most of his life in New York and L.A., they are so overwhelmed with lies and hate and misinformation. And when the people on the coast — and I mean overall; only the guilty need to feel guilty — but when they called someone a racist, they are the racist; when they call someone a child molester, it’s usually coming from a child molester. So you’ve gotta give ’em the benefit of the doubt.”

The Nuge continued, “But the real shocker, I think, and you will agree, is that here’s Gene that speaks truth, logic and common sense most of the time — I really respect the man’s overview — but here’s a man who constantly references, and rightly so, that his mother survived the Holocaust where power-abusing monsters were forcing people to succumb. And then the Nuremberg trials proved that no man, no human has a right to force any unwanted medicine or experiments, like this experimental drug, on people ever again.”

Nugent further adds, “And here’s Gene Simmons, who is so powerfully educating people about the horrors of demonic Nazism and the Holocaust, and then he compartmentalizes it and literally falls into the chasm of power abuse. It’s much like a lot of my Jewish friends that are anti-gun and think that guns should be banned, which was what Joseph Goebbels and Hitler did…I cannot explain it. I just know that I love Gene Simmons, and I’m gonna call him and try to fix him.”

Earlier this month, Simmons said in an appearance on TalkShopLive, “I don’t care about your political beliefs. You are not allowed to infect anybody just because you think you’ve got rights that are delusional, of course. You don’t have the right to go through a red light; actually, the government has the right to tell you to stop. You have to put on a seat belt.”

He continued, “If they tell you you can’t smoke in a building, you can’t smoke in a building. And that’s not because they wanna take away your rights; that’s because the rest of us hate it. We don’t wanna smell your smoke. I don’t wanna catch your disease. I don’t wanna risk my life just ’cause you wanna go through a red light. This whole idea, this delusional, evil idea that you get to do whatever you want and the rest of the world be damned is really terrible. You’ve gotta identify those people and bring ’em out into the open, so you know who they are.”

Simmons would add, “Know who your friends are by how much they care about you. That includes COVID. If you’re willing to walk among us unvaccinated, you are an enemy.”
