The Ombudsman General - Archbishop L. J. Guillory Will Attend the City of Longview Texas City Council Meeting to Get Answers! "TedGate"
The Ombudsman General, Will Attend the City of Longview Texas City Council Meeting to Get Answers!
Office of the Ombudsman General -USA in Texas, USA- -- A Texas town was so intent on ridding themselves of the Motor City Madman that city officials opted to pay out more than $15,000 to have Ted Nugent not play on the Fourth of July.
Longview was in negotiations to have Nugent play at the Fireworks and Freedom Celebration on Independence Day, but backed out after Nugent called President Obama a “subhuman mongrel” while campaigning with Texas gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott earlier this year.
According to city spokesman Shawn Hara, Longview had other concerns that led to Nugent being paid $16,250 to end contract negotiations. The amount was half of Nugent’s guaranteed performance fee.
“(There were) a variety of reasons. Cost, structure, is it the right musical act for this type of event -- a city-sponsored, family-oriented overall event,” Hara said. “They decided no, we don’t want to move forward, it is not the right act for this. At that point we decided to end discussions.”
Keith Rothra of the Gregg County Republican Party thinks the decision was based purely on Nugent’s comments about President Obama. “We have paid $16,000 to Ted Nugent for political correctness,” he said. “It’s directly related to the state level stuff.”
However, African Americans feel disrespected by Ted Nugent, an outspoken racist and hater of President Obama would have ever been considered for an invitation to a celebration that all citizens; living and working will be invited to attend.
There isn’t a question in my mind that other Non-African –Americans would be as upset and rising even more hell if city money was being spent to bring A Black Rapper that use the words Bitch and Hoe as Ted Nugent has used to refer to women. Said one Longview Pastor who requested not have his name and or church mentioned in this article for fear of reprisals by the Longview Mayor or Tea Party members.
