This is interesting and something you might want to keep an eye on ’cause we’re not quite sure what to make of it … whatever it is.
“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,” the singer wrote in a Facebook post on Monday (09-11-17) after urging his followers to ignore “the extreme left.”
“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!!”
Of his critics, the rocker/rapper said he is “very disappointed” that none of the charities or businesses he has backed in the past have come to his defense against “these handful of jacka–es and The Detroit Free Press.” He says he will now focus his philanthropic efforts “on other organizations besides the ones I have supported in the past.”
“I would however employ that NAN go ahead and make up these losses since they claim to be so good for Detroit and do not want me opening the arena and generating tons of jobs and tax dollars for the city and people I LOVE… IDIOTS! ….. (Has Al Sharpton even paid his back taxes yet?),” he wrote, referring to Sharpton’s National Action Network.
The Michigan musician also had issues with an article the New York Post published that cited an unverified “Senator Kid Rock” Twitter account that retweeted a post about the arrest of Reverend Al Sharpton’s daughter.
If you didn’t see it, the Post published: “The performer retweeted The Post’s story of Ashley Sharpton’s weekend arrest on charges she struck a cab driver and stole his keys, adding, ‘These ‘activists’ are such nice people . . . not.’”
As we said up top, Ritchie, a Republican, has been talking about going up against Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.). He launched the KidRockforSenate.com website in July and has sold tee shirts.
“I know I should probably not even have posted anything about these bottom feeders but I will always stand up for myself, my family, my friends, my fans, my city, my state, my country and the good in human nature!” Ritchie wrote in the Monday FB post.
“P.P.P.P.P.S. I LOVE BLACK PEOPLE!!”
