Prior to a concert in Grand Rapids, Michigan last night, rocker/rapper Kid Rock (real name Robert Ritchie) hit his audience with a profanity-laced political speech as he continues to hint at a 2018 challenge to Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI).
During the duration of the wide-ranging speech, Kid Rock blasted welfare, the KKK, neo-Nazis, NFL players kneeling during the national anthem, and Hillary Clinton, while seeming to endorse universal health care.
Flanked by pantless women in sunglasses, Kid Rock received roars of approval from the Michigan crowd.
Here’s a transcript of the bulk of Ritchie’s speech:
What’s going on in the world today?
It seems the government wants to give everyone health insurance, but wants us all to pay. And to be very frank, I really don’t have a problem with that, since God has blessed me and made my pockets fat.
But a redistribution of wealth seems more like their plan, and I don’t believe that you should say, ‘Sacrifice, do things by the book, and then have to take care of some deadbeat milking the system, lazyass motherf**king man.’
Now the issue of struggling single parents is an issue close to my heart, but read my lips, we should not support these women who can’t even take care of themselves, but keep having kid after f**king kid!
Of course we should help them out. I don’t want to sit here and sound like a jerk. But let’s help them out with child care, job training, and put their goddamn asses to work.
And you deadbeat dads, who refuse to be a man, who refuse to raise your sons up to be good men, you ghetto glorifiers and gangster wannabes, I say lock all you assholes up and throw away the f**king keys!
And if you want to take a knee or sit during our Star-Spangled Banner, call me a racist because I’m not [politically correct] and think you have to remind me that black lives matter.
Nazis, f**king bigots, and now again the KKK – I say screw all you assholes! Stay the f**k away!
After condemning hate groups, Kid Rock offered a prayer to God, asking the Almighty to look over and heal the United States.
“Like it or not, Hillary Clinton lost, and your president is Donald motherf**king Trump,” the musical artist then said.
He also implied that he may eventually run for president, in addition to senate.
