Ted Nugent Insulted by his performance being canceled. Is he right to be insulted?
Ted Nugent feels insulted.
LOS ANGELES — Ted Nugent said he was
insulted by the cancellation of his planned concert at an Army post over
his comments about President Obama.
Commanders at the Fort Knox, Ky., post nixed Nugent's segment of a
June concert after the rocker and conservative activist said at a recent
National Rifle Association meeting that he would be "dead or in jail by
this time next year" if Obama is re-elected.
Nugent told The Associated Press this week that his words were not intended as a threat against the president.
"To think that there's a bureaucrat in the United States Army that
would consider the use or abuse of First Amendment rights in determining
who is going to perform at an Army base is an insult and defiles the
sacrifices of those heroes who fought for the U.S. Constitution, Bill of
Rights," Nugent said.
