Obama vs. the Nuge at Red Rocks

Ted Nugent pre-gaming last night at Red Rocks.
Last month, rocker Ted Nugent drew Secret Service scrutiny when he said, "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year," at an NRA convention in St. Louis.

That was on April 18, ancient history in the news cycle, but as roving heavy-metal reporter Brandon Marshall learned last night at Red Rocks Amphitheatre before Nugent's concert with Styx and REO Speedwagon, many Nugent fans are still no fan of Obama. And to be fair, a few give zero fucks about politics and were just there to rock. Godspeed.

When this male Ted Nugent fan was asked about the recent investigation by the Secret Service into the Nuge regarding some controversial comments Nugent made about President Obama, his response was, "It's bullshit! He [Ted Nugent] lets the FBI train on his property."

We asked this Nugent fan if the Secret Service had grounds for an investigation: "No. He did nothing wrong and said nothing threatening."

"He's the worst President in history," a Ted Nugent fan states when asked what she thinks about President Obama. This was a common statement among fans of Ted Nugent at the show.

What Obama fans think of Ted Nugent: CRAWL BACK UNDER YOUR ROCK.

Nugent's brain was entirely dissolved by drugs before 1970...just watch some of his YouTube stuff from the sixties...and now he's suffering from full senile dementia on top of it all. So ya gotta give him some slack for being an America-hating redneck from New Jersey. Good thing he can still make some easy cash from all the dumb goobers.

You don't have to like Ted Nugent to know Obama is a moron. Only an idiot can't see Obama as the lying socialist he is.

Is it me or does it look like the lower on the hygiene scale you are, the more likely you are to be anti-obama? These people look like they can use all of the government assistance they can get......why would they be against obama if he's trying to help them? are they just too stupid to realize it?

This is the kind of discussion created by a country which devalues women, education and peace.  We will have a civil war in this country - it will be bloody and no one will win.  It will be a war over whether these facists think they should be in charge or whether the American people, through the constitutional right to vote should be in charge.  It will come within the next 10 years.  These ignorant fucks are the most dangerous people in this world and nothing will stop the inevitable - war!  We Americans, the voters, need to win this war before it starts.  Speak out about hate, counter it with love and equality.   Most of all, go to the following web site and get a clear picture on what is coming.splcenter.org/get-involved/sta...

We already knew about his aging fan base.  Why waste the space?  We already know that troglodytes love little Teddy, the weekend Texan.  If you want your children to avoid the pitfalls of alcoholism, here are some great examples.  Alcohol tends to damage centers of the brain associated with abstract thinking.  Concrete thinking remains.

He actually called himself a patriot.  HE IS A DRAFT DODGER.  How can his fans say he loves america.  The pussy (when faced with real gun play) ran.

this has got to be the lamest article. ted nugent fans dont like obama?— shockingwhy don't you actually do some reporting and ask them questions that are not so easy to answer like, "What would you do to curtail Wall Street's reckless spending?"until you actually do some reporting please stop publishing stupid and so obvious even a 3rd grader would know the outcome questions

Hahaha...is this all you could come up with to ask about Nugents stupid remark??? All white, skinhead types, white trailer trash, redneck Nugent lovers??? Nugent's a has been, all washed up and had to say something ignorant to get some much needed attention...put his ol' wrinkly ass back on the "music" map.  Obama will have left an amazing contribution to this country; can't say much about Nugent doing the same!

I was once in a band that opened for Ted Nugent back in the Amboy Dukes days. It sounds cooler than it was. He was a jerk then and it's pretty clear that hasn't changed.

This "article" is hilarious.....of course it is Westword, so I'd no doubt expect them to search out the trashiest looking and redneck comment-inducing fans to "expose" for their faux intellectual lib readers.  Got an idea....for the other side of the coin, why don't you go to a Lil Wayne show or KS107.5 Summer Jam.....ask some of the scholars you'll find who the Vice President is....or if they're supporting Obama/Palin or McCain/Biden (ala Howard Stern in '08) and see the absolute eloquent brilliance that flows forth. Yeah, didn't think so. "I'm gettin me that Obama money!!!"

As a Morrison resident, I find it fascinating to observe the "traffic manners" of the fans of various groups throughout the summer. Here are the conclusions I've drawn: Hippies might smell like patchouli and marijuana, but they carpool, and they allow me to move through their midst in order to reach my house safely and with little delay. Tuesday night was awful -- second only to a few years back when Toby Keith headlined Red Rocks. When I finally made it back to the house and looked up whose fans were exhibiting such blatant jackassery, I wasn't surprised in the least to see Ted Nugent on the bill. Either his fans do not know how to read (per the "Right Lane Ends" sign on the way into town), or they have no regard whatsoever for anyone else who has to encounter their horseshit. (My guess is, it's the latter.)

 You make a good point, even if you're joking. Watch one of Ted's full rants on YouTube. He makes no sense. He bounces all over the place with no logic or conclusion. Whatever the cause, mental illness is not far-fetched.

...and their answers to those questions would probably be just as or more coherent than the Occupy trash.....we've already witnessed via Howard Stern and other the IQ level of a typical Obama voter. "Obama/Palin or McCain/Biden?"

It's because " Hippies " and the bands they follow have respect. And most have stepped foot in a college classroom.

"Hippies might smell like patchouli and marijuana, but they carpool"

In their expensive Volvos, Audis, Saabs, etc. Yet they dress like they're dirt poor. I have first-hand observational data on this, biking thru Red Rocks during some Phish or similar lame concert.

Ah, Nick....you edited your comments! But in response to your original, we have had the scenario you described...his name was George Bush, and lefties all over were saying vile and despicable things about him; things that now draw the ire of people like you when said about The Savior but ignored then. Or have you forgotten? Wait.....that was all "satire"...I know it's a lot to ask of people like you, but put down the kool aid and take the blunders off. Gotta love Westword "journalism".

Actually, "the Nuge" is defiantly a hard core Republican, as are his followers, but you already knew that, didn't you? So, instead of having to deal with the truth you choose to project what you are onto those who are on teh opposite side. Really great strategy, dude!

Hahaha, right! Occupiers trash the places, and there's those Rainbow Gatherings. Yeah, and most hippies flunk out of college due to smoking too much doob.

It's called being unmaterialistic.

What's your problem man ? Maybe someone has some money and wants to spend it on a reliable car ? So what ? Do they have to wear fuc***** Prada everywhere they go. There's a difference between conspicutive consumption and intelligent consumption.

You sound like a very nice guy.

On the contrary, some of the smartest people I know smoke " doob ", drop acid and eat mushrooms and it had no affect on the outcome of their degrees.

I think youre just a bitter Self-righteous Christian; most likely you were bullied in High School yes ? I bet you're even a part of your neighborhood watch.
