The army base at Fort Knox announced today that they will not permit Ted Nugent to play at a scheduled concert there with fellow 70’s rockers REO Speedwagon and Styx. They posted the announcement on their Facebook page saying…
“After learning of opening act Ted Nugent’s recent public comments about the president of the United States, Fort Knox leadership decided to cancel his performance on the installation.”
That seems to be a fairly responsible course of action. It would be unseemly, to say the least, to sanction the appearance on base of someone who casually refers to the Commander-in-Chief as a vile, America-hating, criminal. Nugent told an audience at the recent convention of the National Rifle Association that he would be either “dead or in jail” by this time next year if Obama is re-elected. Without meaning to, Nugent gave the American people another good reason to vote for Obama.
I’m still amazed that the pseudo-patriots of the right can get so incensed by the Dixie Chicks saying merely that they were ashamed to be from the same state as Bush, but those same patriopathic zealots applaud far more derogatory language by nutcases like Nugent.
