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."

Ted Nugent, Who Threatened Obama at the NRA Convention Last Year, to Attend 'State of the Union' Address

Nugent

Congressman Steve Stockman has given one of his gallery tickets for the State of the Union address to rocker Ted Nugent, a staunch gun rights activist whose remarks at the NRA convention last year — "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year" — prompted a Secret Service investigation.

Said Stockman: "I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama. After the address I'm sure Ted will have plenty to say."

Nugent tweeted on Monday afternoon: "well well well, there will be a freedom addicted all American uppity Motown guitarplayer facing the POTUS at the SOTU addresss tomoro-lovely"


Ted Nugent Tells CBS Reporter 'I'll Suck Your D**k' in Bizarre Rant After Being Told He is 'Not Moderate': VIDEO

Nugent

Ted Nugent has really odd ways of showing he's an even-keeled guy in a follow-up interview to his recent NRA Obama threats.

Says Nugent to CBS reporter Jeff Glor:

"Call me when you sit across from someone who has more families with dying little boys and girls who get a call to take them on their last fishing trip in life. Call me when you meet someone who does that more than I do. Because that's really moderate. That's extreme. I'm an extremely loving and passionate man. And people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I'm a damn nice guy. If you can find a screening process more powerful than that I'll suck your d**k.

Nugent then turned to Glor's female producer (according to TMZ) and said, "Or I'll f**k you, how's that sound?"

Army Cancels Ted Nugent Concert After Threatening Remarks

Ted-nugent-secret-serviceThe Army has barred Ted Nugent from playing a scheduled show at Fort Knox after he made these seemingly threatening remarks about President Obama:

If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.

From CNN.com:

Commanders at Fort Knox have decided against allowing the "Motor City Madman" to take the stage at the base in June, the latest fallout over Nugent's comments that he would be "dead or in jail" if President Barack Obama were re-elected.

"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," according to an announcement posted Saturday on the base's Facebook page.

The Nuge had already been investigated by the Secret Service as a result of his remarks. The Secret Service apparently decided that, although he is heavily armed and obviously deranged, Nugent poses no actual physical threat to the president or his family.

The Fort Knox concert was part of the "Midwest Rock'n'Roll Express Tour," which also features REO Speedwagon and Styx. No word yet on whether the others acts' performances will go ahead. Nor is there word on why the Army ever thought Fort Knox would be an appropriate performance venue for someone already famous for threatening to sodomize both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton with machine guns. (If you've never heard the Nuge make those threats before, check him out AFTER THE JUMP. Beware, his language is rather coarse.)
