Kid Rock vs. The Swamp

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Kid Rock is positioning himself for a Senate run and I couldn’t be more pleased.

The singer, actor, and entrepreneur who was born Robert Ritchie is threatening to run for senate as a Republican in Michigan. And I think it’s amazing. He works with Operation Homefront, performs overseas for the military, is a hunter, a gun rights advocate, a reserve police officer, and an ordained minister. That’s a pretty Republican pedigree if you ask me.

And he just might win. He hasn't even declared an official campaign and yet polling has him 4 points ahead of the incumbent Democrat. “Kid Rock For Senate” shirts have sold out online and he just started a voter registration initiative at his concerts.

But that hasn’t stopped the Swamp, on both sides of the aisle, from disregarding Kid Rock and saying he is not a serious political force. And, amazingly, they’re using all the same reasons they used to attack Trump: He has no experience. He doesn’t talk like a politician. It’s all a publicity stunt. He has a troubled, liberal past.

Watch my video to see why I like Kid Rock, why I think he is the extension of the middle America momentum that swept Trump into office and why I think born again conservatives like Kid Rock should be at the front of the movement.

Now, if Kid Rock plans to be a politician, I have no doubt he will disappoint me at some point. They all do. It’s what they do best.

But while the Liberals look at rough around the edges conservatives as though they are sewer rats and deplorables, it’s for us conservatives to find ways to communicate to those people, to advocate for them and to think that they have value.

And that’s one of the reasons I like Kid Rock. He figured out how to do that already- way back in the 90’s.

You don't even have to like his music to like that fact that everything Kid Rock does is a big FU to the establishment and a shout out the forgotten man.

That's how Trump won. It's what the media wants us to believe doesn't work. It's how, if he runs, Kid Rock will become the next Republican Senator for Michigan.

Go get em Kid Rock! He is more in tune with the people than a ton of leftards.

ROB GREELEY, as any sane, normal person knows, words cannot hurt you – like sticks and stones can – and therefore cannot in and of themselves be offensive, although you don’t want to be down wind of a fart…
An exception to the rule about ‘words will never hurt me’ are the legion of Zombies churned out of the robot factories in the last few decades, triggered and offended by any little ole thing…like suggesting you don’t want to be downwind of their Zombiespeak…because BS does have an offensive stink to it.

When the student is ready the teacher will appear…

Liza Rosie, pretty sweet boat for sure! Despite his colourful past, I also think he would probably win if he decides to run.

Nice wooden inboard, in ‘all Summer Long’ vid!
commented 2017-07-29 00:27:58 -0400
That was good Sheila. The US. (and Canada) are just so sick and tired of slimy politicians that when someone like Kid Rock steps forward they say, hell yeah! He is an interesting character, and his common sense street smarts would make him a valuable senator. He probably would win.

Oops..Thanks Sheila Gun Reid for the report on Kid Rock.. Just a brain fart… Is the word fart considered offensive by the way?
commented 2017-07-28 23:10:18 -0400
Rob, you’re welcome.
Kid Rock is an interesting person. We will see if he throws his hat into the political ring.
commented 2017-07-28 23:04:51 -0400
Tammie…thanks for the info on Kid Rock…we would never hear any facts about him from you know where/who..You are doing a great thing with your fact finding…let’s hope it doesn’t fall under the goof’s criticism law!
commented 2017-07-28 23:02:17 -0400
Oops, I will have to look up the piano man’s name.
commented 2017-07-28 22:56:54 -0400
Tammie.. Ronnie Van Zant was the front vocals lead singer..
commented 2017-07-28 22:53:22 -0400
Rob, thanks for that, I couldn’t remember his name.

I think Trudeau is a Cher fan.
commented 2017-07-28 22:46:18 -0400
Ronnie Van Zant ..wonder if trudeau has any Lynyrd Skynyrd music playing loud in his sunny ways palace? Sh!.. how could the States and Canada get this f@ck’d up?
commented 2017-07-28 22:15:47 -0400
All summer long

I think it’s impressive Kid Rock had the piano player from Lynryd Skydyrd record with him.
commented 2017-07-28 22:11:19 -0400
The only people Trump neglected is the 1% er’s… He has put more people back to work than who would vote against him. I would take even money on Trump in the next election.. Just think… A few more people onside with Trump
and there could be @ least16 good years of prosperity in the nation while in Canada we are told everything is good and things are getting better while welfare lines along with food banks increase and the only jobs available at the ones in the service industry delivering pizza to who can afford it.

Jimmy…Jimmy you still there man?…hmm…guess he hung up..

Drew Wakariuk,

Trump running wasn’t a surprise – Trump winning was. Fair enough, but I am glad that people are able to see what a fucking shit show he has been as President so far.

I think it’s safe to say that Democrats win in 2020, especially considering it will be a new candidate without the Hillary baggage.

Wanna place your bets now?

If Kid Rock runs – that’s fine. I don’t care. I am only stating what he own record company has said. It’s just promotion for his album.
commented 2017-07-28 20:52:30 -0400
Jimmy Reece if he does run, will you admit you were wrong?
commented 2017-07-28 20:52:08 -0400
Jimmy Reece maybe so , maybe not, but how many laughed when Trump said he would run? How did that turn out for them?

Kid Rock won’t commit to Senate run — for now
By Joe Tacopino July 27, 2017 | 1:55am | Updated

Senator Kid Rock. Don’t Laugh.
Consensus formed at warp speed that Kid Rock’s possible U.S. Senate bid shouldn’t be taken seriously. That’s a huge mistake.
commented 2017-07-28 19:18:13 -0400
I watch that video twice and nowhere in it was this alluding to a promotional gimmick for an album or a road tour…
If he runs for Senate and is successful he may gain his political experience necessary to run against Hillary’s spawn Chelsea when the time comes..
Just imagine… Americans could potentially have 16 years of prosperity and accountable leadership by normal people posing as politicians because they actually care about their country.
On the flipside of that coin if Justin Trudeau manages by legal or illegal means of securing another four year tenure Canada then should be renamed.!!
Hajji heaven or allah’s acres or maybe jahad you by the balls..

Jimmy Reece, thanks, I did see your post.
What starts out as one thing, sometimes turns into something else entirely. Kid Rock may get so much feedback and encouragement, it could develop from there. I’m not saying it will, I’m saying it’s a possibility. Until he himself speaks to this subject, I think most people are going with IF, as Sheila mentioned in her report.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

He’s not. It’s officially a promotion campaign for his new album.

Great assessment SHEILA
I think he’s going to be elected
commented 2017-07-28 15:39:16 -0400
Great report SGR!
We will have to wait and see if he does in fact decide to run.
