In follow up to a post, I did earlier this week, about an assault unleashed by Al Sharpton’s National Action Network in Chicago on Kid Rock demanding that the performer cease using the Confederate Flag during his performances, spoiler alert: Kid Rock stopped using the flag several years ago on his own.
Nick Stern tells the Detroit Free Press that when Kid Rock accepted the NAACP’s Great Expectations Award in May 2011, he was humbled and overwhelmed. That night, he made the quiet decision to remove the Confederate Flag from his stage show. Stern goes on to say that it’s actually been more than five years since the singer appeared with it….
Somebody is looking pretty stupid about now especially after Sharpton’s racist sock puppets protested last week in front of a Detroit museum demanding that the museum remove Kid Rock’s name from an exhibit Kid Rock himself funded.
Kid Rock responded by suggesting that the race baiters kiss off.
So did the extortionist back off and take a moment to do their homework? Not a chance. Instead, Chicago’s National Action Network stepped up their game and demanded that General Motors cancel sponsorship of Kid Rock’s summer tour. GM, of course, refused.
Translation: There is no there there.
Then again, it was never about there being a there there but an opportunity to gin up chaos and a big payoff.
In the meantime, Charles Williams II and the National Action Network stated, “There’s not a need to protest now… It doesn’t mean it’s off the table, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t going to be escalated actions at some point. It just means the dialogue is going in the right direction, and we are looking forward to seeing if we can come to some solutions….”
And what might those solutions be? More money, more money, more money from Chevrolet, General Motors and anyone else sponsoring Kid Rock.
This is a shakedown gone wrong….and exposed.
Expect the race baiters to come back with claims of white privilege/white guilt and if they can, a little blackmail thrown in there for good measure.
Because that’s how the grievance industry rolls and in the eyes of evil and their insatiable appetite for extortion blackmail extortion, compensation is due for Kid Rock’s use of the Confederate Flag during past performances, which is wrong PERIOD.
Those are the grievance industry’s talking points and the race baiters are sticking to it.
Message to Al Sharpton, Charles Williams II: You racist slobs owe Kid Rock an apology.
Message to Sharpton’s idiot sock puppets: Do your homework blockheads.
