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.

Barry and Rimshot Joe have sent their wives out trying to suck in the military vote. I don’t think this is going to help. Military types love Ted and they know why he won’t be playing a concert.

A collection of bars around Fort Knox ought to contact Nugent and arrange an off-base gig. I bet attendance would be hugh with series comments about base commander attitudes.

Cowards.

I'm confused.

Why is it when a “conservative” says something that uses metaphor to make a point “controversial”?

When Libs do it they call it free speech. Even if Ted says he'd like to kill Obama, how is it that is “bad” when the left for the 8 years of W Bush did the same?

The Left are the true segregationist.

“Nugent should hold a concert off-site and see who gets the bigger gate.”

Great idea.

Good evening.

Fwiw, I did Basic at Knox in 75.

I'd share a foxhole with Nugent, but not 0bama.

Perhaps they should book Screwy Louie Farakahn instead...

Your right....lets go after Rush and Ted for their comments but allow our "brothers" to say and do what they want with no consequences (Think the bounty the New Black Panthers put on Zimmermans' head)

I'm getting to the point that I don't care anymore if someone calls me a racist...I'm sick of these people

Ya know, come to think of it Ted would love to play for the troops but we probably never would of heard of this concert without his being dropped. Now everyone is hearing what he said. Seriously, way to play it, Ted!

"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"

Y'all know it is over as the founding fathers saw this nation. We are witnessing the early stages of the USSR & it won't be changed. Whitie has bailed. The other forces have an agenda & willing to die for it. Us whites just accept it & passively welcome us to our demise. Some Americans understand it - as Ted Nuggent - & he is willing to be a point guard. Follow him as The Tea Party followed Santelli. If not, suffer those consequences.

"He also suggested members of the Obama administration, including the vice president, attorney general and secretary of state were "criminals."

Bumpkin Biden's culpability is questionable. My guess is that after being in DC for so long, he's probably done something outside the law. On the other hand, maybe he's just too damn stupid to formulate any kind complicated unlawful plan, other than to blindly step in it. The leftist MSM gave vice-President Quayle crap for miss-spelling potato. This idiot shoots his foot almost monthly. The moron is running out of room in his mouth to put in another foot, providing it hasn't already been shot and bloodied. He's such a tool that I simply laugh at him.

Hands Off Holder asks "What's Fast&Furious? No I won't prosecute the NBPs for voter intimidation. Nor will I prosecute them for putting a bounty on a citizen." My quotations.
Definitely criminal because he has repeatedly discriminated by race, which is a federal crime according to the Civil Rights Act and many other laws. Any government official who includes the statement, "my people (as in black)", is in violation of countless laws for being discriminatory.

Hellfire Hillary, "Gosh, I never noticed those 900 FBI files now sitting on the desk that appeared out of nowhere", is definitely a criminal. Again my quote. She also knew about Billy's deal with the Chi-com money men (Riady, Huang, Trie, et al): dollars for missle and MIRV technology which is now pointing at you as you read this.
Remember how involved she was in the Clinton administration? I do. She is as culpable as Mr. Oval Office stain. I still think that Ron Brown was deaded because he was ready to spill all. Vince Foster was found with carpet threads on his clothes in Marcey Park after supposedly committing suicide. BTW, what ever happened to "I'll take a bullet one more time" Webster Hubbell?

Bambi Barack is most likely a criminal with his questionable place of birth and Indonesian citizenship. Fraud is a crime. If nothing else, he's a seditious SOB who has trampled all over the Constitution via EO's and numerous agency regulations, not to mention by-passing Congressional authority. That alone makes him a criminal.

Nuge, you spoke too frankly. As a celebrity, some things should be kept to yourself, or at least tempered. Think clandestine, sir.

that would be melanin content. Melatonin is a hormone derived from serotonin and produced by the pineal gland that stimulates color change in the epidermis of amphibians and reptiles and plays a role in sleep, aging, and reproduction in mammals.

A lot of people use Melatonin as a sleep aid.

Also... I was at his epic 1978 concert at Cobo Hall in Detroit.

Cobo was packed to the rafters, the concert was louder than a 12GA shotgun discharged next to your ear, and it was THE most rowdy concert I've ever been to (out of hundreds). The Motor City Madman started the concert by jumping off of his giant stack of Fender amps and totally lighting up his Byrdland guitar!

Some dopes were throwing packs of Blackcat firecrackers, and worse, off of the upper balconies onto whomever below. I was with 10 testosterone fueled “Nuge” fanatics who got nailed by the pyros. I rallied the troops to find and destroy the terrorists above.

What I'll never forget is while we were deploying to find the perps, Uncle Ted was in the middle of a blazing guitar solo and stopped midway to ream-out some idiots fighting in the middle of the floor about 8 or 10 rows back. He picked up right where he left off, continuing to annihilate the Byrdland and amps, then he stopped again.

Ted screamed out

"You guys on the left are cool. You guys on the right are cool. But, you guys in the middle are a bunch of A$$holes... and I'm gonna kick your asses!".
... Then he literally spring-boarded off of the stage, flew with outstretched fists toward the punks in the middle, and started wailing on them. It totally freaked out his band members and stage security.

After the dust settled - the fans were a little more cool to their neighbors and Uncle Ted got back to smoking his Fender amps and our ears.

It was surreal and probably the best rock concert I've been to over the last (er ah) 36 years (ouch).

That’s an understatement. My cuz’ serves at Sokor and let’s leave it at that. When Odumbo visited recently, there were only a very few pics of him. Most of the guys in the camp and from what he hinted in an e-mail was that 90% of the guys in camp detested him.

The Dixie Chix Album That came out after their Banishment from Country Radio was "Critically acclaimed"...

Critics don't hold sway with the record buying. I know I never bought an Album based on what some libtard from Rolling Stone said about it. I bought Albums because I like the Music!

BTW Hi Infidelity By REO is a Mutli-Platinum Album Same for Styx Paradise Theater. Critics May not like them But Millions of People bought those albums.

Interesting First Amendment issues here. While a private venue can cancel a performance for what a person says, a public venue is under other rules. If the cancellation was based on the content of what Ted Nugent said, it appears to be a First Amendment violation.

"Uncle Ted supporting the liberal media backed Romney. HMMMMM Somebody is disingenuous or someboy is eskeered and/or bought."

I believe Ted hated Obama so much he would support ANYONE who had a chance to take him down. I know Romney wasn't his first choice, probably not his second either, but Ted is both smart and a realist. He knows it will come down to those two in November, might as well start supporting him now.
