Kid Rock is fed up with political correctness and weighed in on the Confederate Flag debate.
The singer said all the protesters can “kiss his a**”.
Confederate Flag supporters are upset about the removal of a symbol of Southern pride from public places.
Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Richie, supports the Confederate Flag and caught the attention of the annoying Reverend Al Sharpton.
On July 6, protesters reportedly “linked” to Sharpton’s National Action Network marched outside a Detroit Historical Museum dedication to the the 44-year-old singer.
Protesters want the Detroit native to stop using the Confederate Flag at his concerts.
The popular singer, who is also the father and custodial parent of a biracial son, doesn’t care what the protesters have to say.
His 2012 album, Rebel Soul, featured The Confederate Flag .
In a statement issued to Fox News‘ Megyn Kelly, Rock said as follows.
Four years ago, Kid Rock received an award from the Detroit NAACP branch. During his speech, the singer made mention of his use of the Confederate Flag.
He stated, “I’ve never flown that flag with any hate in my heart. Not one ounce.”
Sales proceeds will be donated to the American Freedom Party.
Kid Rock said that the song is basically a “love letter to the South and a middle finger to the PC establishment.”
Ted Nugent contacted Kid Rock to express his support, with Nugent saying, “Rock ‘n’ roll ain’t supposed to be nice — it’s supposed to hit you upside the head with a tire iron, and that is exactly what this song does.”
Nugent adds, “I believe that we always have to look at substance over symbolism, and I think we have to be honest. If we burned every Confederate flag today, would they stop shooting each other in Chicago? If we burned every Confederate flag today, would we stop sanctuary cities from accommodating murderers and rapists and savage people?”
