    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."

    We have all seen the roving reporter man-on-the-street interviews. I’m sure we all have some friends, acquaintances, even family members and others who have uttered the painful statement. I don’t know about anyone else, but when I first heard people say that they voted for Barack Obama because he was black, or that it was “time” for a black president, my skin crawled. I am well aware that that statement of mine will be isolated and made out to be “racist” by the dishonest media and the maniacally boneheaded Saul Alinsky gang over at the Huff-n-Puff Post and beyond, but...

    For over a week in February, led by Wolf Blitzer, CNN devoted countless hours to boost Wendy Davis, the abortion extremist Democrat running to become governor of Texas. Using a guilt-by-association tactic, Blitzer and CNN relentlessly hurled fireballs at Davis's Republican opponent Greg Abbott for sharing a stage with right-wing rocker Ted Nugent, who had called President Obama a "subhuman mongrel" months before. A just-released polls shows that CNN turning itself into a full-bodied campaign outlet for Davis definitely failed to the move the ball for Davis, but might have even backfired. Abbott is currently surging past Davis by a...

Aside from Nugent’s other unclaimed Nazi rhetoric baggage, The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur points out that the aging rocker’s documented past defending his right to keep and bare teenagers makes him a bad campaigner for a supposed “family values” candidate. Using clips from a 1998 VH1 documentary on Nugent, Uygur details the bizarre manifestation of the musician’s “addiction to girls"...

Politics, on the other hand, is quite different. Truth used to be the most potent weapon in the game of politics. It was the best tool with which to garner the most votes, and whoever got...

Nugent has made it clear that he disagreed with the prosecution of George Zimmerman in Trayvon Martin’s death. In a WND article, Nugent stated that Zimmerman was falsely accused and that the prosecution was driven entirely by race. Zimmerman, he contends, was an innocent man who was attempting to defend his life. Nugent continues, explaining that Trayvon Martin was “an enraged black man-child” and a “dope-smoking, dope-peddling, gangsta wannabe, Skittles hoodie boy.” Zimmerman’s...

    On the final morningof the 2013 NRA annual convention in May, the day was bright, the mood was festive and Ted Nugent was neither dead nor in jail. It was almost exactly a year earlier that Nugent, speaking on video at the NRA gathering in St. Louis, had made headlines by predicting one or the other would be his fate should Barack Obama become a two-termer. As far as incendiary rhetoric by the rocker-hunter-conservative firebrand goes, this was pretty tame stuff. He has referred to Obama as a “piece of s--t” and members of his administration as “criminals,” and implored...

    Exclusive: Ted Nugent blasts 'Fedzilla' for enabling populace to remain 'lazy and dumb' Now that the American Medical Association (AMA) has wrongfully labeled obesity as a disease, the AMA may as well categorize as such our most troubling, chronic, widespread and debilitating self-inflicted ailment of choice: stupidity. What once was one of America’s most respected medical institutions, the AMA has been afflicted with the stupid disease and has torpedoed its reputation with a single decision. Don’t be surprised if next week the AMA recommends we drink eight ounces of warm hotdog water each day to improve our health. Smart Americans...

    Rocker Ted Nugent has continued to make his views on firearms and the Second Amendment known. On Friday, his brother, former president and chief executive of Revlon, Jeffrey Nugent, also came forward to share his opinions on gun rights in a recent Washington Post op-ed. The problem? The two adamantly disagree — at least when it comes to universal background checks.

    “I noticed the protesters,” said Nugent during his speech. “And I notice this all the time, both of them,” he said to laughter from the NRA crowd. As the final speaker at the National Rifle Association convention in downtown Houston, legendary guitarist and 2nd Amendment rock star Ted Nugent implored an enthusiastic crowd to increase NRA membership 20-fold as the “culture war” over guns continues. “I want to show them how much we will fight for freedom,” he said as the crowd stood and cheered. Nugent had just spent two hours signing autographs for the same fans who lined up...

    Culture Map - Houston ^ | May 1, 2013 | Tyler Rudick
    The 142nd National Rifle Association Annual Meeting is roaring into Houston for four days of seminars, rallies, prayer breakfasts and country music jam sessions, starting Thursday. The speaker lineup would make any Fox News junkie's heart skip a beat with appearances by conservative politicos and pundits ranging from to Sarah Palin and Rick Santorum to Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity. Hell, even Oliver North of Iran-Contra fame will be on hand to sign copies of his new novel. And yes, don't worry . . . The Nuge will be there in all his Cat Scratch Fever glory for a scheduled...

    WND ^ | Arpil 17, 2013 | Ted Nugent
    As I write this, the cops don’t appear to have any solid leads or suspects in the Boston Massacre II. The president pledged to bring the individuals or organizations responsible for this massacre to justice. Good for him. But I don’t believe him. The president also promised to do the same for the terrorists who killed four of our citizens and torched our mission in Libya. So far, nothing. He should have provided proper security that was requested time and time again to have prevented the attack. Go figure. Though no Libyan terrorists have been apprehended, the president continues to...

    Cybercast News Service ^ | March 10, 2013 | Dan Gainor
    The radical left isn't just at war with guns; it’s after those who use them: in this case, hunters. Long-time animal liberation loon Gary Yourofsky came out with the latest, saying “Hunters are terrorists of animal world,” in a March 8, 2013 piece. Got that? Hunters are Bambi’s al Qaeda. Yourofsky, who calls himself the press officer of the North American Animal Liberation Press Office, went on to bemoan hunting and calling hunters “animal killers.” “Hunting is blood lust and dominance. Hunting is hatred and violence. Hunting is murder. And it’s obscene,” he ranted. In his diatribe, he quoted both...

    Christian Science Monitor ^ | February 13, 2013 | Peter Grier
    Did you see shocker rocker/gun advocate Ted Nugent attending President Obama’s State of the Union address? At first reporters had a hard time finding him, but eventually the cameras discovered the Motor City Madman high in the House gallery, sitting quietly in the crowd, with his hat off, wearing non-camouflage clothing. He looked out of place, like a cowboy at a piano recital. He also looked bored. “My favorite part was when I couldn’t hear clearly,” said Mr. Nugent to reporters after the address. “Then, I didn’t get angry.” But Ted Nugent’s Excellent Washington Adventure was not an exercise in...
