Nugent was slated to serve as the headliner of a Fort Knox concert on June 23, but the organizers of the event have decided against the Motor City Madman appearing at the show.
The show will go on, minus Nugent. Other acts scheduled to rock the fort include Styx and REO Speedwagon.
So why was Nugent cancelled? I know that there's military uniform code that forbids political activism among members of the military (that Jon Soltz thinks doesn't apply to him), but Nugent is not in the military. I could understand if he was told to not make political statements at a military event, and he chose not to abide by the guidelines, was asked to not appear. I remember he played at one of Sean Hannity's Freedom Concerts one year, and I'm sure he had make concessions to tone his stage routine down. You don't play songs like "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" at a family concert, or make statements like below with some of the same language:
But the reason I'm asking is because if criticism of the President disqualifies an entertainer from performing in front of the military, then why did Bush-bashing celebrities perform on USO tours while Bush was President?
Need names? How about Scarlett Johansson, Bush-basher and Obama supporter? Oh, and Stuart Smalley, aka Al Franken, went on USO Tours. Meanwhile, the vile Palin-hating SBS suffering Kathy Griffin used a USO performance to attack Bristol Palin as being "fat." She got her ugly ass booed.
Of course, I'm sure if the Bush-bashers weren't allowed on USO tours, that moron Tim Robbins would give another speech about chilling winds blowing from the White House through Clear Channel Communications. But Obama is President, Tim Robbins is silent, and we know how the Regime bans some reporters who ask unflattering questions from White House events, or kicks reporters whose papers endorse his opponent off the airplane.
I'm open for an explanation.
