Last week, we reported that Trump supporter Kid Rock had called leftwing cohost Joy Behar of “The View” a “b*tch” during an interview with Fox News.
Within hours of this interview, Kid Rock was dropped from his position as grand marshal of the Nashville Christmas parade.
Liberals are constantly launching deranged attacks on Donald Trump and his supporters, and they are rarely punished for these attacks in any way. When a conservative attacks a liberal, however, all Hell seems to break loose as the conservative is swiftly punished for daring to criticize someone on the left.
“We can disagree and still be cordial with one another and just talk about things without going for each others throats and protesting everything,” Kid Rock said in the controversial interview. “God forbid you say something a little bit wrong you’re racist, homophobic, Islamophobic. People need to calm down, a get a little less politically correct, and, I would say, love everybody. Except, I’d say screw that Joy Behar b*tch, everybody but that.”

“Parade organizers feel that the grand marshal should personify the spirit of the Nashville community and have invited James Shaw, Jr., who became a community hero after stopping a shooting at a local Waffle House earlier this year, to be honored,” the organizers of the parade said, according to Variety.
Bryan Lewis, the attorney for Kid Rock’s business partner told reporters afterwards that the singer is still going to attend the parade, saying that he “will show up and is going to try to participate as grand marshal tomorrow.”
Kid Rock himself released a defiant statement after he was called to apologize to Behar:
“Behar has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump and when Myself, Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent visited The White House last year, Behar called it ‘the saddest day in the history of the White House since the British burned it to the ground in 1814.’
Today I said ‘Screw that Joy Behar bitch.’ Mess with the bull, you get the horns. End of story. I apologized for cursing on live tv, I will not for my sentiment nor do I expect an apology from her or anyone else who has choice words for me or doesn’t like me. God Bless America.”
When Behar has criticized Kid Rock and other conservatives, she has suffered no repercussions to her career. What Kid Rock said may not have been polite, but he felt it was warranted and should not have earned him this punishment. We applaud Kid Rock for continuing to stay strong in expressing his beliefs, despite how many on the left don’t agree with him!
