It isn’t easy being a conservative in the entertainment industry. If you’re going to be a conservative actor, filmmaker or musician who’s open about your political beliefs, you’d better possess a spine made of steel.
Which apparently rocker Kid Rock just happens to have.
The Michigan-based musician recently released an entire line of pro-Trump merchandise that’s triggering delicate snowflakes all over the place.
According to Breitbart, The Michigan-based rocker’s new merchandise includes a replica of the now-iconic Trump campaign hat that reads “MAKE AMERICA BADASS AGAIN,” and a t-shirt bearing the slogan “GOD GUNS & TRUMP.”
One T-shirt depicts an electoral map of America, with red states labeled “United States of America” and blue states labeled “Dumbf*ckistan.”

A note next to the items on the official Warner Bros. merchandise store includes a disclaimer citing “overwhelming demand” as the reason why they “actually made” the shirts. Posts featuring the singer in Photoshopped pro-Trump t-shirts had gone viral on social media before the shirts were actually manufactured.
While some applauded the musician’s latest move, other weren’t as thrilled with the new merchandise.
@KidRock What a "D"ick you've become over the past couple of years. See ya.

@KidRock You're everything wrong with modern civilization. Glorified ignorance and hate. Why don't you start selling KKK hoods too?

If liberals truly want to be taken seriously and have folks hear out their arguments, they have absolutely got to stop acting like infants with wet, dirty diapers.
One of the many reasons Donald Trump was able to smash Hillary was because folks who lean to the right are sick and tired of being called “racists” and “bigots,” simply for holding a different point of view from the average intellectually challenged lefty.
Comments like the one above that mentioned the “KKK” are exactly why so many folks voted for The Donald. Being for small government, fewer taxes and pro-capitalism doesn’t make you a member of the KKK. That’s so ridiculous and stupid it’s absolutely deserving of mockery.
Being enslaved to emotion and quick to overreact is what makes liberalism the butt of jokes. If the left would realize this and actually attempt to build an argument for their view on facts, perhaps they’d get taken more seriously.
Then again, if they did make such an attempt, they’d soon discover that fact does not support their view, and they’d become conservatives. Perhaps that’s why they never seem to make progress in that department.
