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.
