    Military Cancels Ted Nugent Performance Citing Violent Rhetoric About Obama

    Military Cancels Ted Nugent Performance Citing Violent Rhetoric About Obama | Stop The Presses! (NEW) - Yahoo! Music

    Getting the boot from Fort Knox is the latest wrinkle in a controversy that began last weekend at an NRA convention and led to a visit from the Secret Service.Citing inflammatory language while expressing his displeasure with President Barack Obama, the military has uninvited rock star and conservative political activist Ted Nugent from performing at Fort Knox in Kentucky, according to the U.S. Army post's Facebook page.
    "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," it's Facebook posting says.
    So far, the June 23 concert remains on the Fort Knox schedule, with REO Speedwagon and Styx listed as "co-headliners," but army personnel said they will grant requests for refunds in light of their decision to nix the opening act.
    Don't honestly care about Mr. Nugent's politics but this is good. Our military can't be seen as supporting somebody who openly attacks the president. However it is interesting that Mr Nugent has no problem playing for the federally funded troops and getting a federal pay check to do so.

    Why is it so interesting that Ted Nugent would want to entertain the people who are serving our country?

    Are you questioning his patriotism, just because he criticized the president?

    Sounds like the government suppressing free speech, to me.

    I agree with their decision. They have a choice in who they bring in to entertain and they decided he wasn't a good fit They have every right to make that decision and I think it was the right one.

    The military would cancel any concert by any one controversial. Nothing to see here....

    They're using the troops and their morale as political ammunition.

    This concert was orginized to entertain the troops, not to make a political statement.

    Ted Nugent was questioned by the Secret Service, they're satsified, that should be the end of it.

    It just goes to show that this administration is full of a bunch of cry babies.

    Was this concert for the government's entertainment, or for the troops' entertainment?

    Obama's feelings are more important than troop morale?

    BTW, the government isn't paying for it. Our servicemembers are actually being charged to attend this concert.

    From the OP:

    army personnel said they will grant requests for refunds in light of their decision to nix the opening act.

    This never happened to Bruce Springstein.
