Motor City Madman turned rogue rocker Ted Nugent again made news last week with the latest of his vitriolic attacks on the Obama administration in advance of his show here on Tuesday, Aug. 21, at Track 29.
Seemingly oblivious to the negative effects on his tour income (to say nothing of his recent investigation by the Secret Service for his potentially threatening remarks toward the president), Nugent suggested to a Florida alt-weekly that the divide between President Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney was basically one of good versus evil.
“I am saddened to admit that Obama represents everything bad about humanity and Romney pretty much all that is good,” Nugent told New Times Broward-Palm Beach.
If his recent Florida shows are any gauge, Nugent is not shying away from his incendiary political statements, at one point imploring his audience to pick up arms.
“It’s 2012. What are you going to do?” he asked the crowd during his recent Tampa performance. “They’re coming up your streets, jackboots stepping high, looking in your windows. What are you going to do? Put a fuckin’ gun in your hands!”
No word from the Romney camp as to whether Nugent will perform at the Republican National Convention.
