Controversial rocker Ted Nugent has lost two more casino concerts amid a row over his right-wing beliefs. The musician's show at the Coeur d'Alene casino in Idaho on 4 August (14) was axed earlier this week (beg21Jun14) after the venue's Native American bosses took offence to his "hate-filled remarks", claiming they had booked him for a gig without knowledge of his "racist attitudes and views". Nugent has now also had two shows at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington cancelled. Lawrence W. LaPointe of the Puyallup Tribe which owns the casino, tells Seattle's King5 News, "Racism is intolerable and not acceptable here... (We have been receiving) lots of complaints from the community and other organisations (about Nugent's concerts)." The shows had been scheduled for 2 and 3 August (14). After the cancellation of the Idaho gig, Nugent accused liberal activists of attempting to sabotage his career, telling Radio.com, "They literally have an army assigned to destroy Ted Nugent. To call me a racist is a clear act of desperation. Because everybody knows I'm not a racist!" Earlier this year (14), Nugent issued a public apology for calling U.S. President Barack Obama "a subhuman mongrel".
