You're either With Ted Nugent or You're With the Terrorists
If you don't like Ted Nugent's music, you're either one of Saul Alinsky's useful idiots or you're a racist. There's no other possible reason. The fact that Ted Nugent's music is generic and derivative is no excuse for not liking “the ultimate rockout with the ultimate all-American, soul music, rockin’ soundtrack of defiance, liberty and freedom.”
Ted Nugent lashed out at the mayor of Longview, Texas after the mayor withdrew the city's invitation for Ted Nugent to headline Longview's annual July 4 Fireworks and Freedom Celebration. In fact the city offered him $16,000 NOT to appear at the festival. The mayor said Nugent “didn’t really fit what we trying to put together, a family oriented program…and I confirmed with his thoughts that that probably wasn’t the right act. And I still feel that it was the right decision. It just didn’t fit with what we were trying to put together.”
Ted Nugent's hissy-fit went as follows:
“I hear from reliable sources that the mayor is a racist and was offended that my band performs mostly African-American-influenced music. [That's right, I almost forgot, Cat Scratch Fever was originally a Delta Blues song]...
“...Everyone knows ol’ Uncle Ted is the ultimate Independence Day rockout with the ultimate all-American, soul music, rockin’ soundtrack of defiance, liberty and freedom. We shall carry on. We are the good guys. Clueless, dishonest people like the mayor are the bad guys...The lie that my concerts are inappropriate for any city anywhere is absurd. My family friendly concerts are legendary and will continue to be all summer long in 2014...Those that hate me are following the Saul Alinsky playbook on how to dismantle, fundamentally transform the greatest nation and quality of life the world has ever known. Those that hate me hate America, plain and simple.”
Maybe he could set those lyrics to some music, and we'd have another cookie-cutter Ted Nugent song.
