Posted on 01/06/2005 2:18:57 PM PST by rightalien
A scheduled appearance by vulgar rock-rapper Kid Rock at a Bush inauguration concert hosted by Bush daughters Jenna and Barbara has shocked conservative supporters.
The rappers lyrics often focus on the recreational nature of sex and send a message of female sexual exploitation. In 2000 he appeared in a porn film with well-known porn stars, and he was named the Sluttiest Male Celebrity by MTV.
According to Donald E. Wildmon, chairman of the American Family Association, the White House has sent a shocking statement to the millions of families who supported his re-election.
"Kid Rock is an inexcusable choice, Wildmon said. "His music lyrics serve to teach our young men to disrespect women in a most vile, self serving manner. There's no compassionate conservatism in that philosophy.
"Obviously, someone on the Presidential Inauguration Committee has made an extremely poor judgment call. The Committee should cancel this invitation immediately, Wildmon said.
Kid rock was chosen to appear because he was a supporter of President Bush's re-election campaign.
How well known...?
It sounds like the President is trying to appeal to the Libertarian wing of the Republican party.
The U.S.S Cole limping back to port with Kid Rock's, "American Badass" blasting over it's speakers.
It was a beautiful, yo.
Oh let's not get our panties bunched....
Remember when The Beach Boys being invited to a Reagan event drew complaints? How times have changed!
Please. How much Pat Boone music can we take? A little variety never hurt.
Wildmon is the loon who attacked Mighty Mouse for allegedly snorting cocaine in a cartoon.
I'm schocked that there actually some conservative supporters out there who would find any rocker acceptable. Im sure many of you always dissed even Pat Boone when he was in his later heavy metal and leather mode. Kid Rock is just entertainment, he's not a role model. Anyone foolish enough to use an entertainer as their role model is a true fool. Lighten up.
I never have liked Wildmon.
Why is Kid Rock doing this? Is he a Republican?
I am not sure that running against the "recreational nature of sex" is exactly a winning campaign theme.
Kid Rock is not a choir boy but he does support the troops and I believe he also supported Bush in the election.
Someone will correct me if I'm wrong about that.
Kid Rock is a big Bush supporter.
Have you ever heard Pat Boone sing Stairway to Heaven? Please do so before making the claim, "A little variety never hurt." :-)
I'd rather have a vulgar American Patriot than a liberal whiner there. He's done a lot for the troops, too.
He'll grow out of it.
Didn't the Cole ride piggy back to the yards?
He's better than Ashley Simpson.
I need to step out for a few and splash a little cold water on my face. It's gettin' hot in here!
I'd be happy if they traded Kidd Rock for Third Day instead.
