Conservative rock legend and Michigan native Ted Nugent said he was devastated to learn that Detroit had filed for bankruptcy but was “not at all surprised.”

“Liberal Democrats took hold of the greatest, most productive city on earth and turned it into a bloodsucker excuse-making hell,” he told TMZ on Sunday. “Liberals seem to think that what Mugabe did to destroy the breadbasket of Africa in Zimbabwe is somehow a desirable model.”

The Motor City filed for the largest-ever municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history on Thursday.

“If allowed to continue, our President will do the same to the whole country,” he said. “Heartbreaking and tragic.”
