Following rocker Ted Nugent's recent comments about President Barack Obama, he has been dropped from a scheduled performance at Fort Knox, the post announced Thursday afternoon.
Nugent set off a controversy at last weekend's National Rifle Association convention when he criticized high-ranking members of Obama's administration and offered support for possible Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
In a video posted on YouTube by the NRA, Nugent said, "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. If you can't go home and get everybody in your lives to clean house in this vile, evil America hated administration, I don't even know what you're made out of."
He also suggested members of the Obama administration, including the vice president, attorney general and secretary of state were "criminals."
Army Entertainment and the Fort Knox Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation are committed to carrying out the concert, according to a news release. REO Speedwagon and Styx remain scheduled to perform as part of the post's annual summer concert June 23. The possibility exists that a replacement will be selected, post officials said.
Executive retaliation, pathetic at that.
Army leaders SUCK as does Obozo.
Shades of Limbaugh..
Hmmm. Isn’t the Fort Knox Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation supposed to take steps to SUPPORT the morale of the troops?
I figure the result will be that Deadly Tedly goes out and throws some lead downrange, and then kills a tasty animal with his bow.
I love Nuge, especially when he shoots his mouth. Nothing wrong with what he said, we may all end up in the slammer or six feet down if Obammy gets another four.
Ted will move on and it will not bother or affect him.
Now then, everybody else ought to grow the hell up, too.
Perhaps they should book Screwy Louie Farakahn instead...
The Backstrap Assassin will just go slay something.
See what the truth gets you.
I just gained more respect for Ted and telling it like it is.
Afterall, wr-ight, jak-sin and notso-sharp-tun gets away with free speech... for now.
This is ridiculous.

I’m guessing there are other venues he can play where the soldiers can go see him.
Fort Knox=No gold, no gonads!
He's off base on that point alone.
The skinny Kenyan communist muslim faggot in the WH that is responsible for the continued depression and is an albatross around the neck of the communist democrat party of the USA is less of a threat than a mormon bishop who pretends to carry the banner of conservatism.
The KOLOBIAN must be kept out of the WH.
