Many Americans woke up the morning of September 11 with some troubling things on their mind. Some still had Hurricane Irma to contend with. Others were contemplating the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. And others simply had everyday concerns like getting their kids up and out the door for school.
Kid Rock was focused on more personal matters.
“People! Pay NO attention to the garbage the extreme left is trying to create! (and by the way, fuck the extreme left and the extreme right!),” he wrote in an explosive early morning blog on his website. “They are trying to use the old confederate flag BS, etc. to stir the pot, when we all know none of this would be going on if I were not thinking of running for office. Pretty funny how scared I have them all, and their only agenda is to try and label people/me racist who do not agree or cower to them! No one had a word to say when we sold out the six shows at LCA [Little Caesars Arena in Detroit] back in January! My track record in Detroit and Michigan speaks for itself, and I would dare anyone talking trash to put theirs up against mine. I am also a homeowner and taxpayer in the city of Detroit, so suck on that too!”
The Detroit native continued on a political rant that seemed to go off in many different directions, ripping into everyone from “The Detroit Free Press” and “The N.Y. Post” to pretty much anyone who disrespects the good ole U.S.A.
“To be clear – Fuck ANYONE who takes a knee or sits during our national anthem,” he wrote. “Pretty sure if Russell Wilson or Tom Brady were doing it they would have no problem finding a job playing for any team they wanted in the NFL! So cut the bullshit!”
