Ted Nugent

One of the scheduled speakers at Glenn Beck’s 8-28 “reclaim the civil rights movement” rally recently reportedly told an audience that he “like[d]” them because there were “a lot of white people.”*

The Telegraph Herald reported earlier this month that musician and conservative activist Ted Nugent appeared at a show in Dubuque, Iowa, and told the crowd, “There’s a lot of white people in this crowd — I like that! (Dubuque) is a white town.” The Telegraph Herald added that “Nugent also pointed out at least one audience member and questioned his race.” The Iowa-based newspaper also slammed Nugent’s remarks in an editorial, and noted that Nugent has a history of incendiary remarks.

According to Glenn Beck, Nugent is scheduled to appear at his 8-28 rally, which falls on the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech. Beck has repeatedly talked about his rally in civil rights terms, and reclaiming the movement.

Nugent’s “pro-white” remark was applauded by the website of the white nationalist, “pro-White” The Political Cesspool radio program. Nugent actually appeared on the “pro-white” show in November 2008.
