U.S. Army dumps Ted Nugent from summer concert lineup
In light of his violent rhetoric about President Obama, rock musician and right-wing activist Ted Nugent has been SCRATCHED from the lineup at a concert scheduled for an Army base early this summer:
Nugent had been scheduled to headline the June 23rd concert at the Kentucky military base, along with REO Speedwagon and Styx. But the controversy he attracted last week when he told a group of NRA supporters that he would be “dead or in jail” next year if Obama was reelected did not sit well with Fort Knox’s leadership.
“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,” read an announcement posted to Fort Knox’s Facebook page.
