LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas city had to pay thousands to a controversial performer, before he even planned on performing at a July Fourth concert.

The City of Longview is preparing to hold its second annual Fourth of July Festival. Planning for the festival includes musical acts performing at the Maude Cobb Convention Center. Event organizers reached out to several artists in hopes of booking them to perform, including rocker Ted Nugent.

City staff had hired a promoter who was in talks with a booker for the controversial rocker. Amid the controversy surrounding Nugent's appearance with Texas gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott, organizers decided to cancel the singer's appearance.

Locals should get together and pay him the rest to perform at a different venue in the city. Everybody wins.

I completely agree.

The left has taken over the agenda in America. Because the right is for sale to China.

We need to strongly stand up for America.

Ted Turner is a totally good influence.

How did we get so many idiots in this country?

Wait, don’t answer that.

Yes, anyone who supports the constitution, who is against tyranny, socialism, Marxism, and hunts for his own food is considered "controversial" today.

Earlier the same month, the controversial singer called President Obama a "subhuman mongrel," drawing criticism from prominent Republicans, including Governor Rick Perry and Senator Ted Cruz.

1. sub·hu·man - adjective - of a lower order of being than the human.

Do humans allow people to die in Benghazi? Do humans destroy the health industry putting millions of lives at risk? Do humans invite millions of foreign invaders into the country putting again, the lives of million of people at risk - like these people?...

VICTIMS OF ILLEGAL ALIENS MEMORIAL

2. mon·grel - noun - a dog of no definable type or breed.

Obama was once knows as "Barry Soetoro and lived the life of a white boy....Until it was time to go to College and get into politics then suddenly he became black and called himself "Barack Hussein Obama". So what is it? Is he white or black?

Nugents tag was 100% accurate.

Imagine if he just showed up. If Ted were smart, he would. It would make a hell of a statement regarding his character.

The communists are starting to get a good grip on Texas. It won’t be long now. A little amnesty and Texas will be deep blue.

Controversial means someone that disagrees with the left.

Lousy, dim-witted small-potato reporters. I didn't think it was possible to "message" someone as "controversial" that often in the opening lines.

As*hats.
