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.

    He openly insulted and "threatened" the Commander-in-Chief of the Military and is then surprised when the Military doesn't want him playing for them?

    As I understand it, he was hired then canceled and insulted; not surprised. If he truly "threatened" the CIC, he would not be walking around. He'd be incarcerated somewhere.

    True - he was insulting to Obama but there was no threat - real or implied - he would be locked up if that were the case.

    If you publicly insulted your boss, your boss would have the right to fire you.

    Freedom of Speech does not guarantee freedom from the social consequences of speech. Other people have the right to not have you around.

    Obama is the "boss" of the military, and the military was sponsoring the event on base. Ted got fired for insulting the boss.

    Ted wasn't fired for "threatening" the CIC, he was fired for publicly insulting the CIC of the Military.

    I guess Ted will be insulted if he's not invited to the White House next.

    Nugent was a draft dodger. He's a coward, and a chickenhawk.

    It's not right, but not unexpected. He took a stand that has been seen as controversial, and the military tends to avoid controversy when it has the chance to do so. None of this takes away from the bold, provocative stance Ted has taken.

    Bush? True. His 'career' with the National Guard was a joke.

    Clinton got a student deferment - quite legit in those days. Nugent covered himself with excrement to get a false deferment. Very different. If he were as rabid about stopping all wars as he was about keeping himself clear, I might have more respect for him. If he respected the office of the presidency sufficiently to refrain from such statements as were made at the NRA, I also might have more respect for him.

    No - he said it all when he crapped his pants and lived in them to dodge the draft. He's all about himself; I see no moral compass guiding his expressions.

    Don't be stupid - Bush served, Clinton didn't. You are right though - he should have just gotten a deferment or run across the border to Canada - hell, who cares - military loves him, you can malign him till the cows come home - military and police adore him.

    What does he expect when he insults the commander in Chief? The post commander probably felt it would not be appropriate to have someone attacking his boss. Poor Ted should read the book how to make friends and influence people.

    He has his right to free speech like every other person in this nation. He should not have to suffer repercussions for his opinion. America as build on freedom of speech, among others. He should be insulted.

    What boss? Ted Nugent is a singer. He has no connections to the military other than doing performances as a donation. He holds no connection to Obama. Also criticism of Obama, as he is an elected official, is protected under the first amendment.

    Ted was hired by the military, of whom Obama is the "boss". The military fired him.

    I don't know that Nuge was performing for free. This was not a free concert, servicemen had to buy tickets. Money is being refunded to anyone who asks as a result of the change in venue.
