Kid Rock Wants you to Buy his Concert Tickets, but he Doesn’t want to pay for your Kid’s Education, He Might be Headed to White House
Rocker-Rapper Kid Rock is being lured into the political arena by Michigan Republican and Tea Party activist Wes Nakagiri. According to the Pulse of Radio, Wes Nakagiri feels that Rock “has name I.D., is an out-of-the-box idea, and would kind of get rid of that stodgy Republican image.” Blabbermouth article
Donald Trump’s showman identity has apparently given every conservative celebrity a glimmer of hope that one day, they could be President of the United States. Seriously, Donald Trump won the white house, why couldn’t Kid Rock or even Scott Baio for that matter?
Kid Rock is an icon in conservative circles. He defies every boring stigma associated with Republicans. Kid Rock is everything that republicans are not: he’s young, he’s cool, he gets hot women, he doesn’t frighten little children and he listens to ‘cool music’. He even has a tattoo!
This would be a good SAT question: Night is to day as Kid Rock is to Mitch McConnell.
In an interview with Rolling Stone in 2013, Rock said that he voted Republican, but he considers himself “more libertarian”. He has supported several major Republican candidates.
In 2012, Kid Rock got behind Mitt Romney and in 2016, he supported Ben Carson (seriously). Once Donald Trump separated himself from that pack of republican wolves, Kid Rock supported him. Kid Rock enthusiastically started selling Trump t-shirts in his online store. Rollcall article
Politics and rock and roll, really have nothing to do with each other. A great politician could, theoretically, pump out some rockin’ tunes, and vice versa.
That stuff bothers me though. I am sorry, a big grievance of mine is watching or listening to some celebrity who I know votes against my best interest. This celebrity expects me to fork over my money to buy his music or movie tickets. But when he gets behind that curtain he doesn’t give a monkey’s ass about you or your kid’s education or the road that you drive on to get to work. Nope. All he cares about is his massive fortune.
Let them eat cake!
The lower politicians keep their taxes, the less money they contribute to our society. It is that simple and it is that disgusting. Kid Rock must go to sleep with a huge smile on his face knowing that we continue to line up to his shows, despite the fact that he votes against healthcare for your kids. He must think his fans are real stupid.
Here are some other conservative rockers:
Ted Nugent, Gene Simmons, Meatloaf, Dave Mustaine, Sammy Hagar, Joe Perry, Mike Love, Avenged Sevenfold. Alice Cooper, Charlie Daniels, Styx, and many more. ranker article
Dice this article any which way you want, but you won’t get rid of that rotten flavor. These wealthy entertainers want the best of both worlds. They want to be republicans and continue stealing your money, but they also want you to willingly hand them money. Essentially, it is your choice to hand it over.
