Idaho Tribe Nixes Bigot Ted Nugent: Wyoming TEA Party Makes Him Keynote Speaker

An Idaho tribe has cancelled an appearance by racist rocker Ted Nugent at a public casino this week.  Meanwhile the Wyoming TEA Party has nabbed him to be the keynote speaker at its upcoming annual event.

The Coeur d’Alene Tribe of American Indians  has a history of being strong human rights supporters, so it’s not surprising that the tribe immediately cancelled Nugent when it learned of the booking.  The Southern Poverty Law Center reports that Nugent, a board member of the National Rifle Association,

has a “long history of racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, animus towards immigrants, and propensity to use violence-tinged language,” Media Matters reported earlier this year.

That came after Nugent called President Obama a “subhuman mongrel” and referred to him as a “chimpanzee.” Nugent previously called Obama a Nazi and a “piece of shit” who should “suck on my machine gun.” He once called Hilary Clinton a “toxic cunt” and, on another topic, said, “I’m beginning to wonder if it would have been best [if] had the South won the Civil War.”

Apparently, these same “qualities” make Nugent a perfect person to address Wyoming TEA partiers. WY TEA Partiers told the Casper Star Tribune that Nugent “thinks he can help” Wyoming–a state which used to be proud to call itself “The Equality State.”

      Wow. This is some of the nastiest, most vile, disgusting language and outright attacks on people I have ever seen! Try to be a little polite, EVER? Your Mama didn’t wash your mouth out wish soap enough as a child! Grow up!

      • You are of course referring to Mr. Nugent right Tonia? Is this the official position of th WY tea party patriots?

    How could anyone who is prejudiced write lyrics like:

    “Well it happened long ago
    In the New Magic Land
    The Indians and the Buffalo
    They existed hand in hand
    The Indians needed food,
    They needed skins for a roof.
    But they only took what they needed
    Millions of buffalo were the proof

    But then came the white man,
    With his thick and empty head.
    He couldn’t see past his billfold,
    He wanted all the buffalo dead.
    It was sad…It was sad.”

    Those lyrics are profoundly respectful to Native Americans.
