Cancel Ted Nugent's Concert on August 6

Cancel Ted Nugent's Concert on August 6

      New Haven, CT

We, the undersigned, ask that out of respect for the New Haven community, which is experiencing a great deal of grief as a result of the Trayvon Martin verdict, you cancel the Ted Nugent show scheduled for August 6th.

Some of the distasteful things that Mr. Nugent has said in the aftermath of the verdict are about Trayvon, a murdered child are:

• Trayvon Martin, was a “17-year-old dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe."

• “Trayvon had no reason not to attack, because it was the standard thug thing to do.”

New Haven is a community coming together in the aftermath of the Trial of George Zimmerman. Actions across the city—from rallies to marches to discussions—have been attended by individuals of multiple races and ethnicities and we feel that Mr. Nugent, who has a right to express his opinion, is not someone who operates in the spirit that this city does.

We understand that you may consider this a First Amendment issue, and while Mr. Nugent has a right to his speech that right does not require that he do so here. As a small business owner in New Haven we ask that you support those of us bringing together community not the hate speech of Mr. Nugent.

To:
Cancel Ted Nugent's Concert on August 6

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      He is poor representation of service men and woman, unethical hunting practices just to mention a couple. Does not deserve to help with stated cause

      As much as I am in favor of free speech, I believe Mr. Nugent engages in hate speech, and I don't doubt that's what he's doing between playing his tired, hackneyed music.

      The man promotes nothing but hate and bigotry. Something none if us needs, especially CT.

      REALLY!!! A racist and staunch gun rights supporter, who believes people dying from gun violence is just a part of his rights to own guns. Even though thousands are murdered a year. Including the people in Sandy Hook Elementary massacre. Someone really thinks Ted Nugent should even be invited into the State of Connecticut. Keep this worm in his own hole he calls home. Not Here...
