If I were to ask you to think of conservative musicians, I highly doubt the first one to pop into your head would be superstar Kid Rock.
Yet in his latest interview with The Guardian, the famous rock star pulled absolutely no punches when it came to sharing his opinions on Obama, being rich, and his thoughts on political correctness.
While I’m definitely not a fan of his obscene language or his stance on certain social issues, I totally admire the guy for 100 percent speaking his mind without fear, especially since he works in the entertainment industry.
WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE AHEAD
From Mad World News:
“I played Barack Obama’s inauguration even though I didn’t vote for him,” said Kid Rock, whose legal name is Robert Ritchie. “I didn’t agree with his policies, but there was an exciting sense of change in the air.” However, he added, “That promise hasn’t been fulfilled, the country is more divided than ever.”
An avid supporter of the Second Amendment, Kid Rock said that if someone invades your home it’s your right to shoot them — and you should. The entertainer admitted that he is always buying more guns and has everything from a Civil War cannon to an MP5 machine gun and old police guns.
He then went on to discuss his wealth and how he has earned his money honestly, and then delivered his extremely controversial views on political correctness.
“I’m not just wealthy, I’m loaded. I can say that because I’m not embarrassed – I’ve made a f**k-ton of money, but I’ve never made a dishonest dollar,” he said of his career. “I try to do right by the people around me.”
Perhaps the most controversial part of the interview was when he defended the pejorative use of the word “gay.” He offered no apologies for his blunt opinion, saying, “If someone says you can’t say ‘gay’ like that you tell them to go f**k themselves. You’re not going to get anything politically correct out of me.”
If you listen closely, you might actually be able to hear thousands of liberals assuming the fetal position, crying themselves to sleep.
As I stated earlier, Kid Rock’s approach leaves much to be desired, but his actual points are pretty spot on. At least on these particular issues.
It’s always nice to see a celebrity not afraid to speak their mind, especially in a culture that frowns on anyone thinking for themselves and supporting ideals or beliefs that go against the progressive “status quo.”
Maybe others will follow suit and inspire their fans to stop drinking the liberal kool-aid and look at the facts of what’s going on in the country rather than just blindly following what they’re being spoon fed by left-leaning media outlets and schools.
