CNN PRODUCER NOTE DisVeteran says he served in the military for 22 years, and is now disabled, and supports free speech. At the same time, he said, Ted Nugent 'didn't realize the audience he had.' DisVeteran said he believes that 'you have speech but you don't have freedom of audience.' By that, he means, 'You can say what you want, but if you say something to offend or hurt someone, you've got to understand what you're dealing with.' He also felt that Nugent's comments were disrespectful to President Obama. 'He offended the president of the United States. He offended the position. The people, whoever they vote in, they expect that you respect the process. That's what's great about our country. He basically just threw our freedoms out the window by saying what he did.'
