Below is Larry Woodall’s letter he send to Walton Arts Center after it announced that Ted Nugent would be performing in the summer
First let me say a big thank you to WAC for its presence in NWA. I’ve enjoyed numerous concerts and art shows at your Dickson St location since your opening and plan to continue.
I write you to register a complaint about your choice to support Ted Nugent for the AMP appearance in NWA on June 10, 2012.
Ted Nugent is blatantly and vulgarly a partisan political entertainer. On stage he has called for SoS Hillary Clinton to “suck on this you bitch” as he waves an assault rifle in the air.
Recently his remarks likened the President of the United States to coyote in one’s living room that needs to be shot.
Today comes this revelation that Nugent’s comments have been scrubbed from the National Rifle Association’s website:
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year,” Nugent told a crowd at the [NRA] convention. That comment piqued the interest of the Secret Service, who’ll be meeting with Nugent Thursday.

In light of the extreme gun violence hovering over our great nation don’t you think it’s time to curtail people like Nugent who has no reservations about urging violence to solve political and social problems our society faces?
