Emerald Queen Casino has cancelled two upcoming shows from “Cat Scratch Fever” writer Ted Nugent (aka The Nuge). Citing “racist remarks”, Nugent will no longer play his scheduled shows on August 2nd and 3rd.
Having previously referred to President Barack Obama as a “subhuman mongrel,” it comes as no surprise that Nugent may actually say demeaning things about other people of color. Citing “racist and hate-filled remarks,” another casino in Idaho owned by the Coeur d’Alene Tribe cancelled the August 4th show days prior to the Emerald’s cancellations.
Nugent cunningly used the “some of my best friends are black” defense, citing influences in Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry while he talked on Radio.com this past Tuesday.
“I am so good at advancing the most politically incorrect policies in the world,” Nugent said. “I have been involved in upgrading our Second Amendment rights in all 50 states, so we the people can in fact keep and bear arms…the left hates that. … I have expanded and increased hunting opportunities all across the globe. So I am able to, dare I say, perfectly articulate my case — they are not.”
Nice try, Nuge. Nice try.
