Kid Rock lets his ‘Republicanism’ all hang out for a liberal rag

Former rapper-turned-rock ‘n’ roll Republican Kid Rock is as reliable as ever.

On the verge of releasing his 10th album in February, “First Kiss,” he sat down for an interview with the lefty U.K. newspaper the Guardian  and made it clear his basic positions hadn’t changed.

Some Republicans might be uncomfortable with his position – or non-position – on moral issues like abortion and homosexual marriage. But he pushes a generally libertarian line that’s at least intellectually defensible. (Unlike the incoherent “rights” the left keeps inventing.)

And when it comes to being told by the PC police to keep his mouth shut, he’s got one very direct answer.

Here are a few samples of Rock’s Guardian interview: (Surprise! Some strong language ahead.)

I am definitely a Republican on fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues. I am no fan of abortion, but it’s not up to a man to tell a woman what to do. As an ordained minister I don’t look forward to marrying gay people, but I’m not opposed to it.

I played Barack Obama’s inauguration even though I didn’t vote for him. I didn’t agree with his policies, but there was an exciting sense of change in the air. That promise hasn’t been fulfilled – the country is more divided than ever.

I don’t smoke much weed, it makes me dumb. But they should legalise and tax everything: pot, cocaine, heroin. Has it not been proven that people will always find a way to get what they want?

I’m always buying more guns. I have everything from a Civil War cannon to an MP5 machine gun and old police guns. If someone invades your house, yeah, you can shoot them. I don’t think crazy people should have guns.

Rap-rock was what people wanted at the time, and they still love those songs at shows. But it turned into a lot of bullshit and it turned out to be pretty gay… If someone says you can’t say “gay” like that you tell them to go fuck themselves. You’re not going to get anything politically correct out of me.

He’s a 43-year-old entertainer/entrepreneur with a summer-tour record that’s the envy of the business, thanks to a business deal that capped ticket prices at a crazy low $20 but ensured sold-out arenas — and a share of all profits.

And he’s as reliable as ever.

    Kid seems to be on the verge of something that even Uncle Ted could support. I’ve never been much of a fan, don’t care for the Hip/Hop Rap trash. But, maybe Kid has “grown up” a little.

    Wonder if Kayne is gonna tell Kid about his latest find… you know that British guy named McCartney???… 🙂

    1. Doug says:

      Kid Rock was once married to Pam Anderson. Better listen to whatever he says.

        We be crazy up here in the D. By the way, scr*w Jerry Jones and his Cowgirls, Texas Doug. Hope Suh doesn’t sign with Dallas next season. Go, Seahawks!

        1. Rip Rogers says:

          The Cowboys died the day Jones bought them.
          Your kidin, dougie from texas, no he is just an immigrant like the Bush boys.
          Green Bay needs to beat the thug cowboys.
          Ted seems to be transitioning well to the higher life in Texas.

          1. Doug says:

            I’m a Jersey boy. Now living in Paradise. Florida. Almost passed out when Jeff linked me with Texas.

          2. Jeff Simon says:

            Sorry, Doug. I knew you were somewhere down south. I “misremembered” it as Texas.

          3. Rip Rogers says:

            Me too. I was going to have immigration look at this a little closer.
            Jersey does explain your problem.

          4. Jeff Simon says:

            It’s up to the Pack to defend the honor of the NFC North now! I am looking forward to seeing the Cowgirls try to compete on the Frozen Tundra!
