“…subhuman mongrel …”

“You probably can’t use the term ‘toxic cunt’ in your magazine, but that’s what she is.”

“I’d like to shoot them dead.”
– Nugent on undocumented immigrants
The Coeur d’Alene Tribejust canceled Ted Nugent’s August 4 casino gig in Worley, Idaho yesterday, because Nugent’s “racist and hate-filled remarks” were unacceptable.
But as of now, Nugent is scheduled to perform tonight at the Wellmont Theater right in the middle of one of NJ’s most progressive, most inclusive towns – Montclair. This despite months of calls to the theater to register upset, most of which went unanswered by the theater (their statement, here). Ticket sales were flagging last week.
So tonight, as Nugent takes the stage in Montclair, a lot of people who find his brand of racist, homophobic, sexist and violence-inciting commentary will be outside the Wellmont tonight:
TONIGHT, starting 6:30pm at the Wellmont Theater
5 Seymour Street Montclair NJ
Gather at the corner of Seymour & Bloomfield Ave.
