Houston Gun Blog – March 23, 2012 – The “Motor City Madman” Ted Nugents’ scheduled performance at an Army base in Kentucky has been cancelled.
Commanders at Fort Knox have gone the “politically correct” route in choosing ground over Nugent’s comments that he would be “dead or in jail” if President Barack Obama were re-elected. The US Army’s Commander In Chief, President Obama, is running for re-election in 2012.
“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,” was an announcement posted Saturday on the base’s Facebook wall.
“Army Entertainment and the Fort Knox Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation remain committed to carrying out the June 23 concert, and the possibility exists that a replacement will be selected,” the announcement said.
The concert also featured Styx and REO Speedwagon.
“I’m very disappointed to hear that you canceled Ted Nugent – this man is a patriot and embodies the spirit of the 2nd amendment, one of our constitutional rights. I believe that the US Army is around to fight for our constitution and our rights. As a former US Army soldier, I am ashamed of your actions here,” was one of many comments on the facebook page at the time we visited.
