Protesters ready to line up against Ted Nugent

Nugent.Protest.png
Ted Nugent's remarks about the president and gun control have some calling him a patriot and others calling him a bigot.
Ted Nugent used to be known for iconic guitar riffs and songs about getting laid, but now he makes headlines with his extreme political views -- often peppered with vulgarity. Nugent's remarks about certain Democrats and hot topics like immigration have made him a divisive figure (to say the least) and you can expect some heated dissent at his concert tonight at the Gothic Theater.

The Facebook events page Protest Ted Nugent Concert @ Denver's Gothic Theater calls for Denver residents to pressure the Gothic into canceling Nugent's show because of his racist comments, specifically those against Native Americans.

The page also references Nugent calling President Barack Obama a "subhuman mongrel" and his appropriation of Native American symbols in his song "Great White Buffalo." Here's the entire statement from protest organizers:

Everyone has heard the Racist comments made by Ted Nugent referring to Native Americans as " unclean vermin" including many other racist and hate-filled remarks. The racist remarks most often cited are jabs at President Obama which include calling him a "subhuman mongrel" and a "chimpanzee." But Nugent's racially-insensitive behavior extends to Native Americans as well. He frequently wears a feather headdress on stage and appropriates a sacred Native symbol in his song "Great White Buffalo," both of which are highly disrespectful to Native culture.
Native activist from the American Indian Movement of Colorado, Denver Idle No More, the Denver Chapter of the Colorado Latino Forum, and the Colorado Progressive Coalition, ask you to join us in protesting Ted Tugents concert being hosted by the Gothic Theater.
For those who cannot make it we ask that you start right now in contacting the Gothic Theater and ask them to cancel the concert! Call and send them e-mails.....and do it several times a day! Let's let Ted Nugent know...We will not condone his racist acts In Indian Country! Please go to the Gothic Theatre fb and tell them to dump Ted Nugent!

Two of Nugent's shows at a Native American casino in Tacoma, Washington were canceled earlier this month after members of the Puyallup Tribe "decided that they didn't want their venue used to promote his racism," Puyallup spokesman John Weymer told the Seattle Times. A casino in Idaho canceled Nugent's August show on July 21 for the same reason.

Nugent called those who pushed for the cancellation of the Idaho concert "unclean vermin" -- a statement many in the Native American community have taken personally.

So far, more than160 people have indicated that they'll attend the Denver protest, and organizers don't want the boycott to stop after the Motor City Madman leaves. Reddog Rudy, one of the protest leaders, posted this on the event's Facebook profile this morning:

Expectations for Protesting at the Gothic Theater today: Please help us to keep this a non-violent action. We will be protesting the front of the Theater where concert goers enter.We can not block people from entering and we must keep moving in a circle or oval on the sidewalk; especially those with the bullhorns. We will have our own Peoples Security, Street Medics, and Liaison that can mediate any issues with Law enforcement or Theater management. we plan to be there 6-8 & will encourage everyone to boycott the Gothic Theater threw out the year. Rudy Gonzales will be there to lead and close the action in unity with all of our allies. Thank You All for traveling in for this Protest Action against Racist Pedophile Ted Nugent, But Most of all, Thank YOU for standing in Solidarity with all of our Native peoples taking action on these issues that are driving the root causes of racism as we see them today. So Pilamaya yelo! See you there!

The Gothic Theater could not be reached for comment, but no cancellation notice has been issued, and Nugent's show is expected to begin as scheduled tonight at 8 p.m.

Thumbs down. Listen to what he actually speaks about. I thought I didn't like 'him' until I did more research. I am not a lefty or a righty. Lefty of centeral moderate-ism here. lol

I thought this forum was for differing opinions. I feel that if one doesn't support your agenda he has no right to post. I am not accusing the following people of being lesser human beings. Mohammed Ali dodged the draft for his personal reasons as did Bill Clinton, debatable. I just voiced my opinion. I don't know if Ted dodged the draft or not. I agree with a lot of what he says.

Here's the lyrics to White Buffalo for those brainless liberals that believe anything thrown their way. Pathetic fools.

Well, listen everybody
To what I got to say.
There's hope for tomorrow,
Ooh, we're workin' on today.
Well, it happened long ago,
In the new magic land

The Indian and the buffalo
They existed hand in hand
The Indian needed food,
He needed skins for a roof.
But he only took what they needed, baby
Millions of buffalo were the proof

Yeah, it's all right

But then came the white man,
With his thick and empty head.
He couldnt see past the billfold,
He wanted all the buffalo dead.
It was sad...It was sad.

Oh yeah
Yes, indeed
Oh, yes

It happened a long time ago, baby.
In the new magic land.
See, the Indian and the buffalo
They existed hand in hand
The Indians, they needed some food,
And some skins for a roof
They only took what they needed, baby.
Millions of buffalo were the proof, yeah.

But then came the white dogs,
With their thick and empty heads
They couldnt see past the billfold
They wanted all the buffalo dead

Everything was so sad

When I looked above the canyon wall
Some strong eyes did I see
I think it's somebody comin' around
To save my ass, baby
I think- I think he's comin' around
To save you and me.

Boys
I said above the canyon wall.
Strong eyes did glow
It was the leader of the land, baby

Oh my God,
The great white buffalo!
Look out!!!! Look out!!!!!!!

Well, he got the battered herd
He led 'em 'cross the land
With the great white buffalo,
They gonna make a final stand

The great white buffalo
Comin' around to make a final stand.

Well, look out here he comes.
The great white buffalo, baby.
The great white buffalo
Look out, here he comes
He's doin' all right
Makin' everything all right

Yeah, yeah, yeah

shitting ones pants to avoid the draft is not patriotism....its a being a coward. Throwing racist remarks at every race he has stolen imagery and lyrics and style from is childish and profane. Man is just another racist D-bag wrapping himself up in the flag he knows nothing about.

Oh, that was original. Brainless liberal with the typical response for everything, "Fox News!" This clearly shows what kind of Neanderthal you truly are. Especially since they whole thing is made up. Think for your self once lemming.

@grapestew Wrong, my inexperienced little troll.  You are unwilling to believe the truth in spite of the facts.  I guess that's where the cult in cultservaturd comes from.

I hope he cleaned up that caked of crap before he wrapped himself up in that flag....we wouldn't want teddy crapping on the flag again.
