    This concert isn't funded by the military. It's being funded by ticket sales to attendees.

    Re: Military Cancels Ted Nugent Performance Citing Violent Rhetoric About Obama

    I guess Ubama’s talk about knives and guns, getting in faces, hitting back twice as hard, hand to hand combat and punishing his enemies was just empty rheteric but Nugent meant it literally...LMFAO!!!

    Gotta love lefty logic.

    You've got a strange definition of "punishment." I guess Lady Gaga and Justin Beiber were "punished" by not even being invited in the first place.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Shucks, the DOD are spoil sports. It would have been awesome to see Uncle Ted firing up an audience of GIs with anti-Obama chants. Maybe an assassination sing-along?

    I can't believe that they had Ted up for an opening act. You just know that he would have outshined REO and Styx with his political passion and charm. Damn, now we'll never know how many would have been court-Marshalled from being picked out of the concert video.

    I am the Nuge, hear me roar!

    It's an event sponsored by the Military, it's located on a Military base, and Nugent would've probably received compensation for his performance. The concert-goers opinion doesn't circumvent the chain of authority.

    Re: Military Cancels Ted Nugent Performance Citing Violent Rhetoric About Obama

    A spokesman for Fort Knox told TheBlaze.com that having Nugent perform “would be a conflict of interest since the military has the obligation to be apolitical.”
    So, all other perfomers are and were apolitical???



    Such a claim, though, seems dubious when it comes to choosing entertainers, who oftentimes show their partisanship. At its website, for example, Fort Knox is touting an appearance this month by comedian Jay Phillips who is supportive of Obama through his Twitter activities. And Ludacris has performed at U.S. Army bases even after the 2008 release of his pro-Obama song “Politics As Usual,” which calls Hillary Clinton, who was running against Obama at the time, a “bitch” who is “irrelevant.” The ultra-partisan song also called President George W. Bush “mentally handicapped” and says that Sen. John McCain "don't belong in any chair unless he’s paralyzed.”
    Comments at the Fort Knox Facebook page have been running about 3-1 against the decision to boot Nugent from the concert.

    They sure did. Are you insinuating they don't have the right to?
