Citing inflammatory language while expressing his displeasure with President Barack Obama, the military has uninvited rock star and conservative political activist Ted Nugent from performing at Fort Knox in Kentucky, according to the U.S. Army posts Facebook page.
After learning of opening act Ted Nugents recent public comments about the president of the United States, Fort Knox leadership decided to cancel his performance on the installation," it's Facebook posting says.
So far, the June 23 concert remains on the Fort Knox schedule, with REO Speedwagon and Styx listed as co-headliners, but army personnel said they will grant requests for refunds in light of their decision to nix the opening act.
The cancellation is the latest wrinkle in a controversy that has engulfed Nugent since last weekend when, speaking at an NRA convention, the rocker said that he would be dead or in jail if Obama is reelected in November.
Also referring to Obama and Democratic candidates in general, he told the NRA faithful: We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November.

More evidence that Military leadership is more concerned with loyalty to Dear Leader than to the Constitution and the 1st Amendment.
No doubt at the behest if the Driveler-in-Chief.
His widdle feelings are hurt.
So they’re okay with fighting for our freedoms but not with Nugent exercising his free rights?
I wonder how many union thugs work on Fort Knox.
"Ich schwöre bei Gott diesen heiligen Eid, daß ich dem Führer des Deutschen Reiches und Volkes Adolf Hitler, dem Oberbefehlshaber der Wehrmacht, unbedingten Gehorsam leisten und als tapferer Soldat bereit sein will, jederzeit für diesen Eid mein Leben einzusetzen."
True, and that should be VERY disturbing to the citizenry in light of what I suspect is this administration’s love to use the military on it’s own citizens.
I’d love for EVERYONE to turn their tickets in for a refund.
I agree, however I don't think all of the brass are pledging blind loyalty. We will find out if or when the Constitution is suspended and martial law is declared by the uh.er.. person at the White Hut!
Correct me if I’m wrong, but they *NEVER* cancelled any performers who insulted and threatened President Bush.
I’m beginning to think that he is burning out our good troops and replacing them with his people who will hence be, paraphrased, “as well armed and equipped as our military”. They have a plan and this seems the most expeditious.
AND the enlisted men.
SPEAK THE TRUTH TO POWER
I think most of the folks in the military agree with Nugent.
Wow! The military is afraid of Uncle Ted. That’s kind of an honor.
“Im beginning to think that he is burning out our good troops and replacing them with his people who will hence be, paraphrased, as well armed and equipped as our military. They have a plan and this seems the most expeditious.”
Believe it. A second term would flush the military, just like what he’s doing to the SS now. Especially the Whites.
Not up or out, but out or dead.
If you’re the Dixie Chicks trashing Bush you get extra gigs and a bonus.
