Ted Nugent now is getting a first hand lesson in the fact that free speech has consequences.
After his unhinged rant at the NRA convention in St Louis in which he alluded to violent action against President Obama, the Army announced that Nugent would not be allowed to participate in a scheduled 70’s rock concert in June featuring REO Speedwagon and Styx at Fort Knox, Kentucky.
“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,”
Of course, cue the faux outrage from quarters of the conservafool movement that Ted is being ‘punished’ for exercising his First Amendment rights in 5…4…3…2…1.
But I seem to recall a different reaction from you conservahypocrites when Natalie Maines and the Dixie Chicks exercised their First Amendment rights to say during a 2003 London concert days before the Iraq invasion jumped off they were ashamed to be from Texas because of Dummya.
Oops, now Ted is getting a reminder that the POTUS is the Commander in chief of the armed forces. But then again that chickenhawk dodged his chance to be in the military and fight for our country in Vietnam.
