Al Sharpton picks a fight with Kid Rock — and Rock’s fans are ready to RUMBLE!

Al Sharpton’s “National Action Network” is pressuring General Motors to pull its sponsorship of Kid Rock’s summer tour, because the musician has expressed support for the Confederate flag.

In the typical Sharpton-shakedown style, the activist group has been calling for boycotts and harassing companies associated with the outspoken musician after he defended the display of the Confederate battle flag.

National Action Network Detroit chapter president, the Rev. Charles Williams II, told The Associated Press Tuesday that “the best resolution is for GM to pull their sponsorship.”

Because, obviously, free speech isn’t nearly as important as Sharpton-endorsed political correctness.

Fox News reported on Tuesday that GM had no plans to withdraw their sponsorship of Kid Rock, noting that so far the Confederate flag hasn’t even appeared on stage. Activists, however, are not letting up.

Kid Rock, meanwhile, isn’t likely to be bullied into walking back his defense of the flag. Last week, when Sharpton first began attacking the musician over his support of the Confederate symbol, Kid Rock responded with a concise and typically “rocker” response:

Unsurprisingly, his comments rallied defenders of free speech on Twitter.

Social media users seemed to have a similar take on Sharpton’s latest scheme to stir up trouble for the rock artist.

Of course, one user put it quite nicely when the controversy began last week.

    If the stars and bars offends you then I suggest you look the other way or stick your head back where the sun don’t shine and leave the peaceful patriots to their own expressions of patriotism.

    Willie Nelson almost always displays the Flag Of The Republic Of Texas, so what ? our Country has a History, all of it is “our history.” The Confederate States all had State Flags, but all Confederate States fought in battle under this single Flag, so it symbolizes all Southerners who gave their Blood & their Honour for it. I for one as an “American.” is not going to put up with what I can and cant do. I honour them all, both sides, and what a waste. Blacks are still “enslaved.” only nowadays it’s called underachievement financed by welfare.
