Ted Nugent has a musical gig at Freedom Park in Chicago Ridge, Illinois on Saturday, July 27. The occasion is Chicago Ridge's annual festival, Ridgefest. For Ted Nugent this will be a return performance, according to the Southtown Star. Chicago Ridge Mayor Chuck Tokar, who has been in charge of RidgeFest since its inception in 1989 when he was village clerk, said of Ted Nugent and his act, "This is his third time here in six years. He likes it here. I guess it’s his kind of crowd. He packs the place."
Yes, apparently, Chicago Ridge is Ted Nugent's kind of place. Ridgefest is Ted Nugent's kind of crowd.
Ted Nugent is known as a ranting, rocker with extreme right-wing political views, in which he embeds Obama-bashing and racism into his musical act. In the thick of the 2012 presidential election, Ted Nugent said in a cryptic pronouncement that “If Barack Obama becomes the next president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year."
Ted Nugent is neither dead nor in jail.
Ted Nugent recently wrote in a column that Trayvon Martin is a "dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe." This is from a ranting, rocker who is a "racist thug."
This is all part of the Ted Nugent schtick.
How else can a washed-up musician attract such a large audience?
It can't be the music.
It must be the racist, Obama-bashing, hate-filled ranting.
Ted Nugent will bring his right-wing, racist rock and roll show to Chicago Ridge, Illinois for Ridgefest.

That's why I'll be there. To support Ted's views and music. And that's why 12,000 other people will be there too.

You are so correct! Wonder if he will tell the story to his "cult" of how he acted crazy to get out of getting drafted during Viet Nam...

Always liked his music. Saw him in concert back in the '70s. I wouldn't go see him now. The guys a a nutbag! He needs to separate his music from his political views for me to be there

I was there last time and while some of his views may be extreme, thank God we live in a place that he can voice them and that you have the freedom not to listen. A big part of his message last time was the fact that people don't vote, then bitch n complain. He's spot on that point.

Can't say that Terrible Ted doesn't put on a good show. Plus he was less vocal this year and didn't really get out of control with his views. Still was a very good show. I enjoyed it. Thanks Ted.

I wanted to go but I heard that he still had that fecal load in his pants that he squirted out to avoid serving his country. Anybody lighting a cigar or cigarette could have set something off as explosive as a fertilizer plant

seems to me that those rednecks from southern states are a bunch of moochers who need to quit being so lazy and uneducated. Then they may be able to get a job and not have to keep asking for federal dollars.

do blacks make up the majority of hillbilly southern states who year after year take more federal dollars than what they put in? Are the blacks in those states the ones to turn around and bitch when a state like NJ asks for FEMA funds after a hurricane and say no, even though NJ puts in the most federal dollars vs. return?

Feel free to check the math yourself. The southern red states are the welfare states.

I understand the Democratic party relies heavily on you and those like you who defend party actions at all cost without actual situation knowledge or common sense but at some point don't you ever feel that credibility and responsibility are something of value?
