Texas City Pays $16K To Keep Ted Nugent Away: VIDEO

Ted Nugent

Racist, homophobic, misogynistic lunatic Ted Nugent is something of a folk hero among the far right, particularly in southern red states. It would seem that a performance from "The Nuge" would be well-received in the state of Texas, given that Texans elected Rick Perry to govern the state and Ted Cruz to represent it in the Senate.

However, Nugent's slurs calling Obama a "subhuman mongrel" was beyond the pale even for the right wing and the city of Longview has canceled Nugent's scheduled performance for their second annual Fourth of July Festival.

The city was even willing to eat the substantial payout of $16,000 to ensure the singer wouldn't be there to perform. Gregg County Republican Party Chair Keith Rothra disagreed with the city's decision to not host a performance by a crazy bigot, calling it "very expensive political correctness."

  4. Surprise, surprise... Tabaggers learn that their blatant racism can come-back to bite them in the ass when people of reason and goodwill learn of it.

  5. "very expensive political correctness."

    They wouldn't have had to pay him anything if they hadn't hired him in the first place, so it's actually very expensive racism.

  6. Considering how low the bar for political correctness is for Longview (their Congressman is Louis Gohmert), calling off Nugent shows just how extreme and unpredictable he is.

  12. Ted is one of the most hateful people on the planet.

    I'm surprised to see a town from Texas standing up to him. Good for them!

    Is there more civilization in Texas than we think? (well, at least a little...)

  13. It's probably to protect underage girls. Teddy has a thing about underage girls.
