Activists gearing up for Nugent's New Haven show

NEW HAVEN >> Activists are brainstorming on the next step in response to rocker Ted Nugent’s scheduled appearance in the city next month.

“We’re a city in mourning right now,” longtime activist Barbara Fair said recently.

Nugent, after a Florida jury found George Zimmerman trial not guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was widely quoted as saying the slain youth was a “dope-smoking, racist gangsta wannabe.”

Activists are working to “make it clear” Nugent is not welcome in the city, Greta Boudreau said recently.

“All of us who see Trayvon as our son and brother, when (Nugent) comes riding into town, we intend to ... let him know how we feel about the comments made about Trayvon,” Fair said.

They are also concerned that Toad’s Place did not cancel Nugent’s Aug. 6 show.

“Out of respect for people who are experiencing so much grief, we think that the business that is based in New Haven, that makes money on New Haven people, should not allow him to come here,” Boudreau said.

Toad’s owner Brian Phelps said he’s “the venue guy.”

“We’re just putting on a show,” Phelps said.

“You’ve got a lot of artists that play here, some on the extreme right and some on the extreme left, and if you tell one side or the other, then you’re actually hurting the other side,” Phelps said earlier this week.

When asked to name an act on the other side politically, Phelps said, “I don’t want to get into that.”

Toad’s seating depends on the show, Phelps said. It can accommodate about 750 people, he said.

Asked if the publicity surrounding the Nugent appearance has spurred sales, Phelps said, “I’m not sure of where the advance sales came from, but we do have advance sales, yeah.”

I’m liking this fellow Brian Phelps. He sounds like a stand-up guy. No coward, that’s for sure.

I won’t be going, I’m seeing Black Sabbath in August. Can only afford so many shows and there won’t be any issues there.

“All of us who see Trayvon as our son and brother,....”
This rabid attempt to portray Trayvon as a victim falls flat in the face of all of the evidence including the record of the child’s history.

So refreshing to hear from the hurt feelings faction. All too often, they keep their precious feelings to themselves. It's good they're finally starting to express them, don't you think?

“Out of respect for people who are experiencing so much grief”

That is the biggest scam of all. There are about 5 people who feel real grief for Trayvon. The other 2 million are seeking a reason to riot and get some new stuff.

Only time I caught Ted was at Hampton Coliseum in 79 or so; what i remember was him up on a speaker bank wearing a loincloth.

I had been diagnosed with Cat Scratch Fever a year or so earlier. For real- it’s in my med charts.

Little chance I would have guessed at that point we would intersect again on a different wavelength..

Barbara Fair and Greta Boudreau will defend your First Amendment rights of free speech and assembly to the death.

as long as they agree with what you have to say and who you hang around with.

We got lawn seats, they were $80 cheaper. No, I’m not kidding. The prices these days are ridiculous but my wife missed the Reunion tour back in 2001 so it had to happen.

New Haven is a sanctuary city. 'Nuff said.

It's also has a very high incidence of homicides.

They got a nice payout from the state for their troubles.

“longtime activist Barbara Fair”

English translation: long time unemployed waste case who can’t get a real job because she’s a professional pain in the ass.

if there is any trouble at that show I will have no doubt whatsoever that it was caused by liberal RAT plant activists sent forth by the RAT party troublemaking apparatchik.

If he really wanted to get people wrangled, he could invite Zimmerman as a surprise show guest.

"That is the biggest scam of all. There are about 5 people who feel real grief for Trayvon. The other 2 million are seeking a reason to riot and get some new stuff."

I loved my grandma dearly. But 18 months after she passed away, I had come to the "acceptance" phase.

Who the (blank) do these people think they are fooling?

Not ONE of them knew Trayvon, nor is related to him in any way.

They need to spare all of us the "grieving" horseshit.

It's getting really old.

Ted said nothing “racist”. He was talking about what has been shown about Trayvon, himself. He spoke about the content of character, not the color of skin. The ones who see racism in this statement are the ones who, themselves, assume that he speaks of all young black guys as they (white liberals, usually) are the ones who see them all as “dope-smoking gangsta wannabe’s”.

They see racism in everything because they want to see it. I’m so tired of this rhetoric.

Nobody protests outside of the concerts of rappers or venues of comedians that spew anti-white, anti-woman filth every day of the week. I hope the venue owner stays strong.

Why are New Haven folks upset about the Trayvon Martin case? If they want to make a fuss because a pro-gun singer is coming, they should do it because of the Newtown shooting. Newtown is a lot closer to New Haven than Sanford—only an hour’s drive away. I know because I was working in Connecticut last year, and I remember spending a February evening in Newtown.

Ted Nugent got banned at the Woodlands near Houston for saying at one of his concerts (elsewhere if I’m not mistaken) that people in America should speak English.

The management at the Woodlands’ pavilion (summer shedhouse concert series) was okay with Chrissy Hynde of the Pretenders asking from the stage AT THAT VENUE if there were any meat eaters in the audience and then demanding that they “choke on it”.

Same with the antisemitic, antichristian, anti-anyone running against Obama in 2008 “scapegoat” pig at Roger “Pink Floyd” Waters’ fascist concert rally. “GET THEM UP AGAINST THE WALL!”

He’s still getting blowback for continued actions of this variety. I have no doubt that should he tour again, the Woodlands would gladly have him.

There exists a blacklist in the entertainment world. It is decidedly anti-conservative.

SCREW the million dollar marxists.

If he ever goes back to Houston, he should avoid that Woodlands place like the plague

Well trayvon was a good student. He was only 16. He was attacked by Mr. Zimmerman. Mr. Zimmerman was ordered to stay in his car. It was self defense, Trayvon was afraid Zimmerman was gay rapist...

So many lies. So little understanding.
