UPDATED: Iowa paper reports Ted Nugent said, "There's a lot of white people in this crowd -- I like that!"
This post has been updated with further information.
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.
The Southern Poverty Law Center notes that the show's guest roster is frequently populated with a "Who's Who" of radical racists such as "white supremacist " Sam Dickson; "white supremacist " Paul Fromm; former Klan leader David Duke; and "neo-Nazi activist April Gaede."
UPDATE 8/20: Dubuque365.com photographer Mark Dierker disputed  the Telegraph Herald's Nugent quote, writing that "what I head [sic] him say in his opening monologue was this: 'Hey there sure are a lot of white people in this crowd. You need to do something about that.' He later said, heavy on the sarcasm, 'Dubuque is a white town.'"
*UPDATE 2: Mediaite's Tommy Christopher writes , "Nugent is no longer scheduled to appear at Glenn Beck's rally, but in this case, Media Matters can't claim credit . The Duge Nuge is booked at the Boise Knitting Factory  on 8/28, a conflict that arose about a month ago  (although, to be fair, this Facebook update appears to be the only news of the change)." The title of this post has been updated to reflect Nugent's cancellation.
