Another Native American Casino Cancels Ted Nugent After Community Complaints
This is not shaping up as a good month for right wing racist Ted Nugent: Tacoma Casino Cancels Nugent Shows, Citing Racism.
TACOMA, Wash. — Emerald Queen Casino will cancel two Ted Nugent concerts that were scheduled August 2 and 3 over allegations of racist remarks by the singer.
Puyallup Tribe officials said the decision came after learning that Nugent has said racist remarks.
“The first amendment gives people the right free speech, but I think racism is intolerable and not acceptable here,” said Puyallup Tribal Council Vice President Lawrence W. LaPointe. “We’ve been getting lots of complaints from the community and other organizations.”
“I don’t want to take away his right to say what he wants to say, but we don’t need it here.”
In case you’re tempted to doubt Nugent’s long history of racism, please note that he was a frequent guest on the Tennessee white supremacist radio show “Political Cesspool.”
