AOTW: Of Course Kid Rock Wants To Keep The Confederate Flag

Welcome back to The Asshole of The Week, where each Friday we focus on one person, place, or thing from the preceding week that is the absolute worst.  This week we have a man named Bob from Detroit, who continues to prove that he is actually as big of a piece of shit as he looks.

The world's resident scumbag Kid Rock is at it again. On Monday, following the recent tragedy in South Carolina and subsequentdebate over the Confederate flag, the Michigan chapter of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network held a protest outside of a Detroit museum with a Kid Rock exhibit. Which if this is true, and Detroit actually has a Kid Rock exhibit, shows only that the desolate reality of that city has been until now somehow drastically underrepresented. I weep for that poor town.

Pictured: Detroit native, dumb asshole.

The Detroit rocker and alleged glass dildo recipient — who is, again, from Detroit, which is nowhere near the South — has been known to use the Confederate flag in his concerts, and the National Action Network would like him to, you know, stop pulling that racist bullshit. “How in the hell can Kid Rock represent Detroit and wave that flag just generating millions and millions in ticket sales — a flag that represents genocide to most of Detroit?” asked Sam Riddle, political director of the National Action Network.

Last night, Fox News — everyone’s favorite source of well-reasoned, even-handed news and opinions — covered the story. The less we can say about this, the better, but The Kelly File host Megyn Kelly and conservative radio host Dana Loesch defended Kid Rock before Kelly read out a statement given to her by Kid Rock himself: 
“Please tell the people protesting to kiss my…ask me some questions.”
Two things:

  1.  Kid...or Bob...or should be in jail right now for being the person who introduced the plague incarnate that is Uncle Kracker onto the world.  Just by association you are guilty and deserve no trial.
  2. You are from fucking Detroit.  Detroit, Michigan.  No matter how much you wish you were the second coming of Ronnie Van Zant, you are most certainly not.  You are an inauthentic poseur, who invokes the music of other much better musicians to leech success off of it shamelessly.
As for the flag, if you are so fucking clueless and devoid of empathy to not take down a flag because you cannot understand (or choose not to understand or care) why it hurts are probably too far gone.  It is comforting to know that you will die someday, and better minds will make this decision for you.

And here is another thing about the whole confederate flag debate: That flag never existed outside the confederacy. By which I mean, there was no legislative coalition of southern states (or any official coalition for that matter) that used the flag after the war ended. So for me, it’s legacy lives and dies with the confederacy – it’s not a symbol of pride in the south of any era, it’s a symbol of pride in the confederate era of the south. You know, the one that wanted to keep fucking people in one of the worst genocides and brutal bondages in human record. All so that they could make lots of money. 

Is it a part of history?  Sure.  But put it in a fucking museum, like another flag: THE NAZI ONE.

Anyway the world continues to spin, people continue to be shitty, and Kid Rock is still a dumb asshole.  Good to know.  Good to know that despite much turmoil, there are always these constants to rely on.  Congratulations Bob, you are from Detroit, and are most certainly The Asshole of The Week.
