Ted Nugent Told To Tone It Down For State Fair Show

Detroit Free Press reports that a South Dakota state fair official asked Ted Nugent to tone things down for an show at the S.D. State Fair on Sunday, after a video surfaced of the outspoken rocker slamming Democratic presidential candiates Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama.

Susan Hayward, who manages the fair, told KSFY-TV in Sioux Falls that officials contacted Nugent's representatives yesterday and reminded them that the fair is a family-oriented event.

"They were very courteous in responding immediately in assuring us that that's exactly what we would have," Hayward says.

Video footage of Ted Nugent having a few choice words for Clinton and Obama during a recent concert has surfaced. With machine guns in his hands, a camouflaged Nugent yelled, "Obama, he's a piece of shit, and I told him to suck on my machine gun. ... And then I was in New York. I said, 'Hey Hillary, you might want to ride one of these into the sunset.' " He also went off on Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer before saying, "Any questions?" and shouting, "Freedom!"

Nugent has been an outspoken advocate of the second amendment (the right to bear arms) and pro-hunting issues.

Nugent also openly takes an anti-drugs and alcohol stance, which he reportedly has followed during his career, unlike many other rock musicians.

In addition to his music career, Nugent has starred in his own television reality shows, "Surviving Nugent" (2003, VH1) and "Wanted: Ted or Alive" (2005, OLN).

Ted Nugent isn't fit to suck the puss from a retards sh** crusted butt zit. Nugent deserves nothing less then to burn in the fiery pits of hell and have his puckered sh** knot penetrated by a cavalcade of homo monkeys on a regular basis. Fuk Ted Nugent. I pray that he gets cancer of the prick and dies a horrible death.

I'll defend the Nuge till I die! Every one gets behind a liberal but when a convservative speaks out. . . "Ignorant 'tard!" The Nuge rocks because he can give a f*** less about what you think of him and he'll stand by his beliefs. He's also a damn good writer and is funny as hell. Buy a gun, shoot a deer, and listen to "Wang Dang, Sweet Poontang."

Bah.

I like that Nuge is loud and crazy (and pro-guns) but his political rants ruin it for me. I'm not crazy about most of our presidential "hopefuls" but Ted's vocal pro-Republican non-drinking, non-drugging nonsense lost it's appeal and irony 15 years ago.
