Tacoma casino cancels Nugent shows, citing racism (WA)
KGW ^ | 07/24/2014 | King 5 News

Posted on 07/25/2014 6:08:30 AM PDT by aimhigh

Emerald Queen Casino will cancel two Ted Nugent concerts that were scheduled August 2 and 3 over allegations of racist remarks by the singer. Puyallup Tribe officials said the decision came after learning that Nugent has said racist remarks.

The tribal council said they also received threats from community members wanting the casino to cancel his shows. The cancellation comes days after the Coeur d'Alene Tribe cancelled Nugent’s August 4 shows at its Idaho casino because of what it called the rocker's "racist and hate-filled remarks."

One thing for sure, people in Tacoma won’t tolerate “racism”.

God bless the tribal council.

Say, tribal council, how are things on the reservation? What's the unemployment rate? What's the alcoholism rate? The dropout rate?

Things going that well?

What a load.

The Indians get to have gambling casinos. THAT is racist, giving a group of people advantage because of their race.

Lets play a game called "Find the Hidden Racism."

Here's Nugent's quote:

“I am so good at advancing the most politically incorrect policies in the world,” the rocker told Radio.com. “I have been involved in upgrading our Second Amendment rights in all 50 states, so we the people can in fact keep and bear arms…the left hates that. The liberal democrats and the Huffington Post and the Saul Alinsky gang, they hate that I’m so effective. I have expanded and increased hunting opportunities all across the globe. So I am able to, dare I say, perfectly articulate my case — they are not."
Wow, this is harder than "Where's Waldo."

the Indians also have their own laws, their own court system, their own separate and protected racial identity, benefits, lands, it is equal under the law unless you are Native American, I guess the argument is that they were here first, which they were, so their stake is protected from us, the invaders

Maybe because he's white, it's "racist" for Ted Nugent to claim that he's extremely effective, without tempering it with situations where minorities have been effective?

Would it be like me saying most technological advances the world has seen have been by Caucasians?

Just trying to find some racism in that statement. It's my best guess.

=========================================

Indian council to Texas eagle:

How things are on the reservation: STATUS QUO

Unemployment rate same, almost 100%. We ARE aiming for that.

Alcoholism rate: slightly lower as the kids really don't care for it so much but they WILL adapt, ESPECIALLY if they stay on the reservation. What on earth does it mean that just because the oriental Asians can't tolerate alcohol WE can't either so we are related? Poppycock.

Drop out rate: less since fewer of us now attend school. We get the "round eye, dirty, nasty white man to COME OUT to the reservation to teach."

Oh, and we have succeeded in fooling the Left into believing that we Indians did NOT come from Asia and that there was NO Bering Straight bridge. What do geologists know? They are just racist white men bent on making us NON-indigenous Americans.
HAH, their even call us INDIANS thinking we came from India. How dumb.

THANK YOU for the blessing...but we don't know "God." We have the "Great White Spirit," thangkew. Your God bless you.

P.S. Shoot any eagles out of the sky lately? :o(

Bwahaha, that was fun! MAJOR sarc.
Thanks, T.E.!

Too bad they practiced their own version of genocide by wiping out other tribes. We might have had a larger population of them.

As for their laws, they will be moot as they will:

drink themselves into non-existence eventually,
join the USA and become AMERICAN citizens,
be PROUD to be citizens of this wonderful country,
get jobs,
marry into the locals and become ONE OF US,
get jobs,
get high school diplomas,
get college degrees,
get jobs,
get political jobs and be politicians,
get jobs,
pay federal and state (where applicable) income taxes,
get retirement checks to supplement the guilt money money from the nasty old whities who have been SUCKERED into giving us money for NOTHING.

**One bright point: since the Indians managed to massacre/eliminate so many other tribes there IS more money for the surviving tribes.

Great White Spirit BLESS our genocide of those "others."

YET MORE SARC.!

Let’s see... In the old days, back in 1977, the writing standards in my junior high school journalism class would have dictated that I actually support my article with facts and/or attributions to the story. Had I submitted this lazy piece, my teacher would have shredded it and sent me back out after rightfully admonishing me with “you’ve written ‘racist remarks’ three whole times, Billy - THREE. Go back and find out what those remarks were and find me a source or two... OK, little Billy? Good boy!”.

That’s it. “politically incorrect” is the dog whistle.

Dear PIBFE,

We don’t need to shoot eagles out of the sky. The liberals are killing them with windmills which provides your reservation with expensive energy that is funded by everyone but you and provides no jobs for your tribesmen.

By the way, we can provide you with cheaper energy, which will create hundreds of jobs for your tribe, bring in millions of dollars per year in revenue which will take people out of poverty as well as increase the educational standards of your community and economies for generations.

All you have to do is tell your liberal politician benefactor to go pound sand. You will make millions off of this and at the same time do something useful for your tribe.

Sincerely ,

The Motor City Madman.

It is sad to see a once proud people wallowing in depravity because of their dependence on the Great White Liberal Father. The government checks will be in around August 1st and they will get liquored up for a week or so. That is the type of entertainment they prefer.

“Nugent in the past has referred to President Barack Obama as a “subhuman mongrel.” Nugent later apologized “for using the street fight terminology of subhuman mongrel.” But he maintained that Obama was a “liar” violating the Constitution.”

Obama used the term “Mongrel” in a Speech.

Nugent just added the “subhuman” part for effect.

Commies are “subhuman”, so I have no idea what the issue is.

Most people are so stupid or just so busy consuming the lib propaganda like a glutton, that they confuse all the things worthy of hatred, for racism. The democrat party is so worthy of hatred, that they all better be watching their back. I would guess that many patriots aren't handling it well watching the systematic destruction of their beloved country. Violence has to be entering their thoughts at this point. And by the way, history will be quite clear that it was all Obama's fault and creation. IOW...he owns it, I'm afraid.

I'm certainly not condoning that sort of behavior, never would. It's just pretty clear that things are getting to that point, and going to go beyond it.

Geez. You need a LIFE.

Truth- it’s the new hate speech.

If they'd had a bigger defense budget, they'd still own this place.

Well, since you have absolutely no clue I will enlighten you. The Motor City Madman is Ted Nugent, who the article was originally written about. My response to you was as Ted Nugent, basically telling the Tribal Council that it is because of them that their people are living in poverty.

I accept your apology.

Lol.

Apologies are meant for deliberate offense. Mine was NOT deliberate so there is no reason to apologize.
Moreover, I assume your correction was, in no way, meant to offend.
However, thanks for assuming that I was a mind reader.
