Fort Knox drops Ted Nugent from concert plans
The News Enterprise ^ | April 19, 2012

Posted on 04/19/2012 6:12:48 PM PDT by SLB

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.

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.

wasn't there, of course, but what I read of Nugent's remarks seemed just stupid.

Now then, everybody else ought to grow the hell up, too.

I'd bet the farm that the directors of the Ft Knox entertainment committee are Obama supporters and of a diverse race. I created a firestorm when I was on active duty and complained that the Airmens’ Club catered only to the black airmen and didn't have a night for we country rednecks.

Nugent is supporting the coward from KOLOB.

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.

FUMR

The KOLOBIAN must be kept out of the WH.

"KOLOBIAN". That's good, I like that.

Now if we could come up with some silly looking "special clothing" or uniform that Kolobians wear, we'd be all set.

You know, maybe something subtle, like underwear... but impregnated with special sauce that gives them magic powers or something...

Nah, nobody would believe that. :)

The New Black KKK offer a $10,000 reward for George Zimmerman "Dead or Alive" and not a peep is heard from the Feds.

But let a non-Eric Holder person say he probably won't survive a second Ubama term and the Feds pee all over themselves.

The price one pays for honesty. He probably needed the gig, too. All the more power to him if he doesn’t cave to any powers that be - that means he’s truly honest, everything he says is what he truly believes.

I agree, and if this were almost anyone other than the Department of Defense, I would have problems with canceling Nugent.

But let's change the situation a bit. What if the Dixie Chicks had been booked to perform at an Army post before they made disparaging comments about a Republican President? Would we not say that MWR needs to take a long hard look at the appropriateness of having a major performance by singers who have made recent disparaging comments about the Commander in Chief? Most of us would say the difference is Nugent is right and the Dixie Chicks were wrong, but unlike us, the Department of Defense can't get involved in politics.

My guess is Ted Nugent knew there would be consequences to his comments and made them with the full intention of using his national reputation to get widespread attention for his criticism of President Obama.

The old saying is often true in the entertainment world: “There's no such thing as bad publicity.” I'm guessing Nugent is quite happy to see that MWR’s cancellation of his appearance had resulted in his comments about Obama getting even more attention.

I’m sure it put a dent in his revenue for the quarter, but Ted Nugent has been around for a long, long time, and he doesn’t drink or do drugs, so I”m guessing he’s... comfortable.

As much as I agree with what Ted said, it would be inappropriate to allow him to potentially act similarly on a US military base. Go ARMOR!

The possibility exists that a replacement will be selected, post officials said.

There's plenty of ultra-liberal suck-up celebrities to fill the void. Ted Nugent is now an American icon (representing the 75% of us that aren't Obamabots and who absolutely positively LOVE America, the US Constitution and The Rule of Law). Like Rush Limbaugh, he's a hero speaking words that cause liberals heads to explode.

Ted should have a free concert at the same time on the same day at a venue that is as close to the front gate of Fort Knox as he can get. Then offer free transport from the front gate to the venue and back after the concert.
