A country music singer on record as calling NRA supporters whores and pimps will headline a Karl Dean for Governor event in Nashville Thursday.
The singer in question, Will Hoge, said he has disdain for pro-Second Amendment politicians.
No one at Dean's campaign returned The Tennessee Star's repeated requests for comment on the matter Tuesday. The Star wanted to know if Dean's views align with Hoge's.
Hoge previously endorsed U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for United States president.
Hoge called the NRA "a fear-mongering, bully organization" in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.
"They are the worst things about America: a rich organization, led by horrible people, preying on some of the best people in our country with fear and lies, just to grow their own profits," Hoge said.
"I've got to believe that at some point all responsible gun owners will see what a sham that organization truly is."
Hoge wrote the following lyrics for his song "Thoughts and Prayers":
"Another politician sitting far away
Doesn't matter how many people got gunned down today
As long as you can keep your re-election bills paid
You're just a whore to the pimp that's called the NRA"
Hoge also told the magazine how he feels about people who ask for thoughts and prayers after a mass shooting.
"They have all the opportunities in the world to make a difference, but they do nothing," Hoge said.
"Then to just send out a phrase like 'thoughts and prayers,' as if we don't all know that there is something they could do? It's shameful."
Hoge is active on Facebook and Twitter.
On both accounts, he spends a great deal of time lambasting U.S President Donald Trump and calling members of Trump's administration liars.
In one post, he endorsed a book calling for the federal government to enact a universal basic income, on the grounds that it will end poverty.
Translation: “America would be wonderful if only there weren’t any Americans in America.”
Who IS this dipstick?
Dean is really shoring up his share of the vote in the Vanderbilt faculty.
NRA supporters are the worst of America? Really??
How many shootings are carried out by NRA members?
How many shootings are carried out by mentally ill people?
How many by youth gangs in our big cities such as Chicago?
How many by feral people such as gangs?
How many by MS13 and other international criminal organizations??
Enemy combatant. Okay.
What an *sshole.
The NRA is the only thing preventing the USA from becoming a Leftist dictatorship.
I wonder if Will Hoge knows who the “Dixie Chicks” used to be. If this treasonous loser has any talent or potential at all, he need to apologize profusely and then step off the political stage for the rest of his career. The alternative is to simply end his career - and I wonder if that might be the plan.
Never heard of him
Translation: America would be wonderful if only there werent any Americans in America.
That is the attitude of the establishment, both R and D jerseys. That’s why they have been importing fraudulently documented foreigners for 30 years against the will of the citizens.
If they all fell in a hole in the Earth, I would gladly toss them bags of lead.
Country music was lost long ago.
New Country is a joke.
Will Hoge, never heard of her...But she looks like a ballchinian...
A soon to be Dixie-Chicked unemploayable country ‘star’..................
He just did....................
