KID ROCK Gives First "Campaign Speech" During Michigan Show, Is He Really Running?
Kid Rock's promotional tactic of running for Senate in Michigan continues. A few months back, he announced his intent to run, and released two songs promoting that fact. Except, Rock hasn't even filed the proper paperwork to run, which means by continually promoting this unofficial Senate run, he might be in violation of U.S. election laws.
But that didn't stop Bob Richie from giving his fans at a concert in Grand Rapids, MI a sampling of what a speech on the campaign trail would sound like. Halfway through his show on Wednesday, September 6th, a podium appeared on stage and Kid Rock gave a speech, where he acknowledged he was not P.C. and also knocking down neo-nazis and the KKK. There is a lot to take in. Here's the full transcript, with the video right below:
“What’s going on in the world today? It seems the government wants to give everyone health insurance but wants us all to pay. And to be very frank, I really don’t have a problem with that. ‘Cause god has blessed me and made my pockets fat.
“But redistribution of wealth, seems more like their plan. I don’t believe that you should say sacrifice, do things by the book and then have to take care of some deadbeat, milking the system, lazy ass, motherfucking man.
“Now the issue of struggling single parents is an issue close to my heart. But read my lips, we should lock up all these women, who can’t even take care of themselves, but keep having kid after fucking kid. Of course we should help them out [laughs.] I don’t want to sit here and sound like a jerk. But let’s them help them out with childcare, job training and put their goddamned asses to work.
“And you deadbeat dads, who refuse to be a man. Who refuse to raise your sons up to be good men. You ghetto glorifiers and gangster wannabes. I say lock all you assholes up and throw away the fucking keys.
“And if you want to take a knee, or sit during our Star Spangled Banner. Call me a racist, ’cause I’m not PC. As if you have to remind me that black lives matter. Nazis, fucking bigots and now again the KKK? Say screw all you assholes, stay the fuck away.
“It’s no secret we’re divided and we all should take some blame. We should be ashamed that we all seem scared to call him by his name. So please almighty Jesus, if you’re looking down tonight. Please guide us with your wisdom and give us strength to fight.
“To fight the tyrant evils that lurk here and abroad and remind us all we are still just one nation under God. Now let’s get down to brass tacks, before I hit you with this funk. Like it or not, Hillary Clinton lost and your president is Donald motherfuckin’ Trump.
“Kid Rock for senate has got folks in disarray. Wait till they hear Kid Rock for president of the U.S.A.. ‘Cause wouldn’t it be a sight to see, President Kid Rock in Washington, D.C.. Standing on the Oval Office like a G. Holding my dick ready to address the whole country.
“I’ll look the nation dead in the eyes, live on TV, and simply tell them, you never met a motherfucker quite like me.”
Hey, he's already doing better than Gary Johnson. Would you vote for the Kid?
