The Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Wash., owned by the Puyallup Tribe, has cancelled two Ted Nugent concerts on Aug. 2 and 3 because of racist remarks made by the rocker and NRA board member.
The Coeur d'Alene Tribe in Idaho said earlier this week that it cancelled Nugent's Aug. 4 shows at its casino because of his "racist and hate-filled remarks," noted USA Today.
Nugent has referred to President Obama as a "sub-human mongrel," lectured black people to be "honest, law-abiding," and admitted to using the N-word. During his "Black Power 2013" tour, Nugent made numerous racist and offensive comments on stage.
On Tuesday evening, protesters demonstrated against a Nugent concert at The Wellmont Theater in Montclair, N.J.
Protesters from various organizations chanted: "Two, four, six, eight we say no to Nugent's Hate" and "No hate in the Garden State."
"The Wellmont has a right and people have a right to go," Montclair NAACP President Al Pelham told NorthJersey.com. "But in this day and age, with all the hate in world, we don't need somebody coming in spewing vile comments about President Obama or Hillary Clinton. We don't really need hate at this point in time."
In response, Nugent called his critics "unclean varmints" on “The Lars Larson Show” yesterday, notes RightWingWatch.org (audio below).
“I call them unclean varmints, I’ve actually gone by them and I mean it, they’re hygiene-challenged, they actually stink, they’re dirty people, they’re unclean, they’re bused in to Connecticut and New Jersey and different places to protest a Ted Nugent concert but, Lars, they are so stoned or just brain dead, they actually wear their American Communist Party regalia, they’re not smart enough to take off their identification that they’re not really protesters, they’ve been paid and bussed in,” stated Nugent.
However, Nugent offered no evidence to back up his claim that the protesters were "paid and bussed in."
