"Racism Responsible For People Hating My Music"

 Ted Nugent called the mayor of Longview, Texas “clueless,” “dishonest,” “racist,”


and claimed that he had “bamboozled the good citizens of Longview.” Last month, the town withdrew its invitation to have him headline its annual July 4 Fireworks and Freedom Celebration.

On Saturday, Nugent told the Forth Worth Star-Telegramthat the real reason for the revocation of the offer was that Mayor Dean is racist. “I hear from reliable sources that the mayor is a racist and was offended that my band performs mostly African-American-influenced music Those that hate me are following the Saul Alinsky playbook on how to dismantle, fundamentally transform the greatest nation and quality of life the world has ever known,” he continued.

“Those that hate me hate America, plain and simple.”

I'm still going to See Ted at DTE right here in The Motor City July 19th
