Pimp Of The Nation: Watch Kid Rock's Ridiculous Senate Campaign Speech

The bombastic musician who is maybe running for Senate from his native MI (or maybe just conducting a super-political publicity stunt), is clapping back at critics who have pointed to his previous use of the Confederate flag - and he's also using a tactic familiar to lawmakers to get back at charities and people he's supported for not coming to his defense: He's cutting their funding.

Kid Rock says that its a political hit job from the "extreme left", and that "they are trying to use the old confederate flag BS, etc.to stir the pot, none of this would be going on if I were not thinking of running for office".

As noted in an article by Vanity Fair, Paul S. Ryan, vice president for policy and litigation at the nonpartisan political watchdog organization, Common Cause, has stated, "Regardless of whether Kid Rock says he's only exploring candidacy, he's selling "Kid Rock for Senate" merchandise and is a candidate under the law".

Back in July, in a freakish twist of fate, Kid Rock (neé Robert Ritchie) announced that he'd be running for U.S. Senate.

NAN plans to protest the shows due to Rock's criticism of quarterback Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protests and his support of President Donald Trump, as well as his past use of the Confederate flag during shows. "Pretty amusing 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!" wrote Ritchie, who lives in Clarkston.

"To be clear - Fuck ANYONE who takes a knee or sits during our national anthem!" he fumed.

The inclusion of Lord Ganesha has riled up Hindus for associating the remover of obstacles with "mercantile greed". A joint statement from senior Greek Orthodox Christian priest, Stephen R.

In response to that, Kid Rock wrote a long, swear-filled post on his website, which begins this way: "People!" "So for the unforeseen future I will focus my philanthropy efforts on other organizations besides the ones I have supported in the past".

Despite claiming he's not officially in the running, the rapper seemingly gave his first campaign speech last Wednesday (September 6), during his concert at Grand Rapids in MI.

At last week's show in Grand Rapids, his announcer introduced Ritchie as Michigan's "next senator", and Ritchie came on stage to the tune of "Hail to the Chief".

In one postscript on his note, Kid Rock writes, "P.P.S".

Some quick background: NAACP's Detroit chapter gave Kid Rock the Great Expectation Award in 2011, and he donated $100,000 total to various Motor City-based organizations.
