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.

You forgot the Nugent's African-American clasic "Wango Tango"

BTW all Rock is African-American influenced, this is the first time I ever heard Nugent admit it. While he's at it he can give thanks to Jimi Hendrix who he also imitates.

I'm sure Nugent's African-American influenced music wont get him invited to any Juneteeth Celebrations or Blues Festivals either.

Of course Calling Obama a "subhuman mongrel" which even drew ire from fellow haters Rick Perry and Ted Cruz didn't help either.

I don't think he's going to get a Beach Boys moment out of the Mayor

"Those that hate me hate America, plain and simple."

Then... he's basically claiming that HE IS America. He's nothing like that. He is more like a pesty bug. I think we need to call for help from the ORKIN man.

The fact that people anywhere in America are paying him NOT to play is a good thing, and maybe our country can make him a rich man by everybody pitching in and paying him just go home, be quiet, and not pester us any more.

Erik: I haven't heard much of Nugent's music but I don't hear any Hendrix influence, other than the fact that rock wouldn't exist without the influence of blues/R&B. Everything I've heard by Ted Nugent just sounds generic. Just another competent band with a few decent hooks and guitar riffs; another drop of water in the Pacific Ocean.

Interesting link; I'd almost forgotten about James Watt banning the Beach Boys from the Washington DC July 4th concert.

Snave: That's pretty insulting to Ted Nugent that people are paying him not to play. Serves him right.

I meant how all the Rock Guitarist who play loud with feedback are "imitating" Hendrix

Erik: I don't know if Hendrix originated the use of feedback or not. Jeff Beck was doing that a lot too, as far back as 1965 if not earlier.
