Kid Rock To Confederate Flag Protesters: ‘Kiss My…’

So this is a thing now. There are people protesting outside the Detroit Historical Museum because of their Kid Rock display, protesting the exhibit because the rocker has used the Confederate Flag as symbolism… in the past. Yeah.

Now, mind you, they aren’t protesting Kid Rock using the flag today or in the past few weeks. They are protesting the fact that he has used the flag in the past. Like, ever. Kid Rock’s response? Well…


As for the museum they are protesting? The flag isn’t even displayed anywhere

“The Kid Rock Music Lab is one of 10 permanent exhibitions at the Detroit Historical Museum,” the museum said in a statement, WXYZ reports. “Kid Rock’s contribution to Detroit’s music history is significant and warrants his inclusion along with other key figures like Stevie Wonder, Bob Seger, Aretha Franklin and Eminem. There are no displays of the Confederate flag in the Kid Rock Music Lab or anywhere else inside the Detroit Historical Museum.”

So this is where we are now. Protesting a museum, that isn’t displaying the flag, over their exhibit of a musician who has used the flag in the past, but not recently… and we aren’t even sure when the last time was.

Political correctness is exhausting.

Look around you, Ellen! We’re at the thresholds of hell!

Thugs Broke Into A Cancer Survivor’s House And Threatened Her. They Didn’t Know What Was Up Her Sleeve…

Image for representational purposes only.

A Detroit woman, a cancer survivor who goes by the name of Ms. Dee, was the victim of a home invasion Tuesday night.

Sound asleep, Ms. Dee was awakened around 2 a.m. to the sound of glass shattering. Four or five men entered her home through the bedroom window they busted. One of the men pointed a gun at her.

Unbeknownst to the intruders, Ms. Dee had a gun as well. She was able to get to her weapon and described what happened next as “gunfire.” She was shot in the lower leg by one of the suspects. She felt confident that she was able to shoot one of the intruders as he scrambled back out of the window.

It is unknown if there have been any arrests in the case. The offenders fled the scene once Ms. Dee wielded her weapon. Her brother had a warning for the intruders and anyone else who wanted to think about breaking into his sister’s home. He stated: “I do not care who’s doing it. I’m not calling out no races. I’m not calling out no ages or nothing like that. If you break into our home, we are going to kill you.”

Ms. Dee has had a weapon in her home for three years. Its purchase was prompted by a home invasion that happened three years ago. No one was in the home during that break-in. She bought the gun in order to protect herself from situations like the one she experienced on Tuesday.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig stated that people in their homes do not always have the luxury of dialing 911. Immediately upon a situation of immediate threat, much like the one Ms. Dee faced, citizens have the right to defend themselves.

Ms. Dee joked after the incident that she must be a cat. After all, she is a cancer survivor; and now her home has been broken into twice.

Detroit Dems Blame GOP For Water Cutoff

Detroit: we have a water problem. In case you hadn’t heard, at the end of May 2015, the City of Detroit made the historic decision to cut off water to residents behind on their water bills–$50 million behind.

The angry masses are looking for someone to point their fingers at. So, slippery Detroit Democrat leaders are blaming Republicans for being forced to shut off water to their constituents.

But when questioned how Democrats can still be blame-shifting after Detroit has had more than 53 years of consecutive Democrat rule, the Detroit Democrat Party leadership’s collective attitude could be paraphrased as follows:

“Before we ran those blasted Republicans out of office in 1962, they messed up Detroit so badly that we’re still recovering. We can’t even keep the water running from all their mess-ups.”

For the record, the last Republican Mayor in Detroit was Louis Mirianii. He was born in 1897 in the early days of Vaudeville, serving as mayor from 1957 until 1962. That was so long ago, we couldn’t even find a color picture of his honor!

Today, Democrat Mayor Mike Duggan presides over Detroit–the largest city in history to file for bankruptcy. But he prefers to focus attention on the city of Baltimore, which surpassed 100 shootings in May of 2015 and also is sending water shut-off notices.

Hmm…so what do Democrat Baltimore and Democrat Detroit have collectively besides water bill collection problems? 100 years of Democrat rule!

NYT Just Said It Wants Thousands Of Syrian Muslims To Move To This U.S. City

The headline of a recent New York Times editorial suggested that allowing foreign Muslims to “settle Detroit” is an ideal way to restore the largely destitute city. Authors David D. Laitin and Marc Jahr offer some theories to back up their hypothesis, including the fact that Detroit’s economic crisis and Syria’s civil war are potentially complementary humanitarian crises.

In the authors’ opinion, largely Muslim refugees from Syria would make an “ideal community” to assist in restoring Motor City, since “Arab-Americans are already a vibrant and successful presence in the Detroit metropolitan area.”

Based on evidence suggesting those currently here are often successful in business, the editorial posits that another influx of thousands from a similar culture could fare just as well. While they admit that we “cannot know for sure,” Laitin and Jahr cite anecdotal evidence that victims of violent crime “become more active citizens than similar compatriots who have not suffered from these traumatic events.”

Laying out the various federal agencies that would need to work in tandem to make such a project work, the authors concluded that their plan is “eminently feasible.”

To foster the diversity often exalted above all other considerations, the editorial also emphasized the role of “African-Americans and Latinos” in the future of Detroit.

The authors did address some of the concerns they acknowledged opponents might raise upon hearing their plan. For critics of any plan that would facilitate such a rapid immigration, however, the explanations were insufficient.

Readers left a variety of comments in response to a Right Wing News article about the editorial. Reaction ranged from a denunciation of the authors – and the Times – to assertions that Islam is fundamentally incompatible with American values.

At least a few pointed out that Laitin and Jahr seem to be addressing Detroit’s problems without acknowledging their root cause.

“You still need to get rid of the liberal idiots ‘running’ the city,” one reader insisted.

Should Syrian refugees be dropped off in Detroit? Let us know in the comments section below.

Michigan Black Caucus Leader Arrested On Gun Crimes

A state senator who chairs the Michigan Legislative Black Caucus was taken into custody Sunday on suspicion of firing a gun at the vehicle of his ex-wife.

State Sen. Virgil Smith, a Democrat who represents parts of Detroit, was taken into custody around noon Sunday after gunshots were fired at a vehicle outside his home, The Detroit News reported.

The Detroit Free Press noted that the incident happened around 1 AM the same day. The publication added the following Monday:

The incident occurred after the Detroit Democrat’s ex-wife pushed her way into the house and attempted to attack another woman who was in Smith’s bed, according to police. Smith told police he she threw a chair at the windows of his house and he shot at her car.

According to police, Smith said it was the stupidest thing he had done in his life. Police sources told The Free Press that the ex-wife approached the house and started banging on his window.

After Smith opened his door, she kicked it, forced herself inside, and went into the bedroom where she saw another woman. The ex-wife attempted to attack the other woman with whom Smith was spending the night, police said.

When Smith went to the front door, he saw his ex-wife throwing a chair at his house windows. He then shot at the woman’s vehicle. 10 shots reportedly hit the car.

Democrats are admonishing Smith’s behavior. Progress Michigan has even called for Smith’s resignation. “If these allegations against the Senator are true, he should resign immediately,” said executive director Lonnie Scott.

The right to due process is an important value shared by progressives and while the Senator is innocent until proven guilty, these extremely troubling allegations and legal proceedings will make it difficult at best for him to represent his constituents

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, a Republican, is declining any comment for now. “That’s in the criminal justice system, and that will go through the normal due-process.”

Smith is still in Detroit Police custody as of Monday evening.
