Kid Rock Family Values?: Desperate GOP Candidate Pimps Drug & Ho Culture for Votes

By Debbie Schlussel
So, you’re a tough law-and-order sheriff running for the U.S. Senate. Your opponent is a liberal incumbent, and you’re running as a family values conservative. But you’re trailing by more than ten percentage points in the polls, and there are only a few days left.
What do you do? Well, if you’re Mike Bouchard, the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Michigan, you show what a phony you are on family values, crime, and everything else by sinking to inviting rapper Kid Rock to campaign for you. At 7:00 p.m. tonight, Kid Rock a/k/a Bob Ritchie a/k/a Mr. Pamela Anderson is scheduled to headline a rally for Bouchard at the Royal Oak Music Theatre in suburban Detroit.
But here’s Kid Rock’s trashy record:


GOP Candidate Mike Bouchard Pimps

Kid Rock/White Boy Rick Drugs & Hos Culture

* Crime: Rock/Ritchie has repeatedly told the world that he modeled himself after convicted, imprisoned Detroit drug kingpin “White Boy Rick” a/k/a Richard Wershe, Jr., with his fur coats and pimp hats.
Wershe ran one of the most notorious drug rings in America in the 1980s. He ordered the murder of countless people. Kid Rock glorifies Wershe in his lyrics and wrote a letter on his behalf to authorities in an attempt to get Wershe paroled. Thankfully, Wershe was not paroled, and soon after, he was discovered to have been running a national auto theft ring from his prison cell, for which he’s since been convicted.
* Drugs and Family Values: Kid Rock is an admitted former drug dealer, but he still speaks glowingly of doing drugs. He gleefully raps about his life as a drug dealer, doing crack, and having sex in a school bathroom with the fellow drug dealer who had his out-of-wedlock kid. (It’s not like he had to be this way. He comes from a wealthy family. His father sold his lucrative Ford dealership for millions. The whole trailer park thing is an act.) He had to go to court to stop the circulation of a video of him and another rock star getting oral sex from groupies on tour.
Glorifying hard drugs and misogyny are themes in a lot of his most popular “songs.” He used to “date” porn stars, and they and strippers are a constant accessory on his tours. Don’t forget what he told Rolling Stone:

Bill Clinton … a [expletive] pimp. … The guy’s my hero.

(He told the mag he was stoned on drugs when he met Clinton at the White House.)
Ritchie–the self-proclaimed “Pimp of the Nation”–likes to give the one-finger salute in every publicity shot and toured the country in his “White Trash on Dope Tour.” He used the Michigan chapter of crime-prone “Outlaw Biker Gang” as security at a video shoot.
You may recall that Kid Rock was scheduled to perform at the 2005 Bush Presidential Inaugural festivities, because the Bush daughters are fans. But his invitation was rescinded amidst protests from conservatives with some common sense. Apparently, Bouchard has no such compunctions.
A sampling of Kid Rock’s lyrics:

I’m a pimp. You can check my stats . . . . Smack all the hos.


Because I do so much pimpin’, one day I’ll probably walk with a limp . . . one day, watch, I’ll be the pimp of the nation.


I be the early-mornin’ stoned pimp, straight-limpin’, Boone’s Farm-drinkin’, at the party big-booty pinchin’.

There really is no difference between Kid Rock and the most perverted Black rap “artists.”
If Kid Rock were Black, we’d call him Snoop Dogg.
And that’s the problem with critics of Black rappers and hip hop (both of which do deserve to be criticized), like Bouchard and Bill O’Reilly. They rightly attack the pimp/drug dealer glorifying culture of hip-hop and rap. But they don’t seem to have a problem when white rappers, like Kid Rock, do the same thing. In fact, O’Reilly said Rock is “a friend of the show.” Some have cited a trip he made to visit the troops in Iraq. So, I guess that means his lyrics and behavior are okay.
Sorry, they aren’t okay. And you don’t need to be a prude to recognize that. Call Mike Bouchard to the carpet on this one, and ask him why he’s such a phony.
You may be for family values and getting tough on criminals and drugs, but with Kid Rock headlining his campaign event, clearly Mike Bouchard doesn’t share your values.
BTW, Don’t forget how Kid Rock disrespected the flag . . .

Has everyone forgotten that POLITINIANS are the original gangstas & PIMPS???

EminemsRevenge on November 2, 2006 at 1:06 pm

Before the limbaughnistas jump on me like i’m John Kerry…poliTICIANS…typo above:)

EminemsRevenge on November 2, 2006 at 1:12 pm

if you want a rock star go after gene simmons everybody loves him and when you win your election you can appoint him in charge on the department of interior to sell his kiss underwear to women

As bad as Kid Rock is, I would prefer him over the Muslims: the Dearboristanists and the Hamtramckanists.
Politicians are prostituting themselves to any one who can help them be in office. So, not a surprise if it comes from a Republican, so-called “conservative.” Both parties are crap anyway.

One sad thing about Kid Rock is that his music was – almost good. When he broke-through, he seemed to have a lot of potential. Perhaps with the guidance of a great producer, his work in the future could’ve been mentioned in the same breath as Leonard Skinner. Instead of working hard and smart, he followed the tired, unimaginative path of substance abuse. What a waste. It’s too late for an Aerosmith post rehab comeback, because he never reached the “A+” level. Just another record store cut-out and a very odd campaign loss-leader.

Kid Rock did not disrespect the flag. MTV told him to wear the flag and gave it to him to put on.. Kid Rock is extremely Patriotic. This Bouchard Guy must be good, if you have to spend time trashing Kid Rock. Why not talk about candidates rather than supporters. God ppl are stupid

“Why not talk about candidates rather than supporters. God ppl are stupid”
” God ppl are stupid”
Yep, and let’s start with the letter “a” as in “angel.”
Give me a break, it’s a legitimate issue because as lovely Debbie stated Kid Dork was INVITED by Bouchard. It’s legitimate to ask why Bouchard would choose to publicly associate himself with a person of well known low character traits as Debbie listed.
I just wish he would stay in Detroit as I believe he either moved to here in Nashville or just stays frequently. And, BTW, a while back he got in trouble for a fight at a strip club in Nashville which made the news here.

Kid Rock is many bad things, but wearing the flag is not “disrespecting” the flag. I wear an American flag bandana under my helmet when I snowmobile. Am I going to be accused of “disrespecting” the flag? After all, I wear it because I’m proud to be American.

theclassiclib on November 3, 2006 at 7:11 pm

This ass is nothing more than a waste of time.
If the Bushes wanted a singer who usually meets the standards of real conservatives they could have always called on “Kid Rock’s” biological father, Hank Williams, Jr.

No matter what you people say about kid rock and what you don’t like about him, he’s got his boy’s (white boy Rick) back for many years! Be honest, we’d all like to have a friend like that. Quit hate’n, he’s only human, and he can’t be all what you say he is and be filthy rich, with one of the prettiest women on the f’n planet, with fans who make him BIG. Personally, I’m not attracted to him and don’t listen to his tunes, but I love white boy Rick, so I love who loves him. Keep talk’n trash about others, but I’m sure you don’t have friends like kid rock and you aint a friend like kid rock, this is obvious as y’all talk your B.S. May you and yours be GODsmacked, none of us are perfect, we ALL screw up, and we all need to have our people’s back-like kid rock!

Just wondering where this information came from? I have NEVER once heard that WBR ordered murders??? And your bashing Kid Rock when we live in a society that gives Grammy’s to singers like Ludacris and those moron Dixie Chicks that offend millions….hmmmmm makes you wonder….

operationfreedom07 on February 13, 2007 at 12:48 pm

and where is your public outcry when we release a murderer, dressed like a pimp, and give him a free college education, a fully furnished apartment and money to live on??

operationfreedom07 on February 13, 2007 at 12:51 pm

First Deebie I would really like to know where you grew up. Second if I was not on any street in detroit you should shut the fuck up!!!!!!!!!! cause for one every person in the city of detroit has either knew or was a drug dealer me myself grew up on the streets of 7mile on the westside of Detroit and I am happy that I made it out of that neiborhood and I am taking everything that I learned there street wise with me I am now in the U.S. Navy and have been for the past 3 years and there are alot of people that I knew in my neiborhood and that I was friends with that were criminals and are in jail and I have their backs….
Kid Rock has also said that the crimes that white boy rick has done in his life were not right and that he could help the young people in the streets of detroit today!!
it is people like you who give detroit a bad name because you are a dumb ass until you have live in that city and been through half of the things I been threw in the first 17 years of my life in the city of Detroit I would advise you to keep you damn comments about Kid Rock who has also giving back to the community and talked to teens about the wrong doing he has commented and White boy Rick who has I will admit done meaningless things but has also help the Fed’s bring down others who are going down the same path he did down, to your self
Very Respectfully

realdetroitpimp on April 5, 2010 at 7:12 am

Rick Wershe NEVER order any murders! To post that comment and post it as fact is totally irresponsible. He was a kid who sold drugs for about 3 years. He was seduced by the feds and later by money. He had info on corrupt cops and political figures. Many people in the upper echelons wanted him quieted so they made sure he’d go to prison so he couldn’t speak up.
It’s sad to see people trying to make a young kid into some sort of “Tony Montana”.

I guess facts take a back seat when someone wants to sensationalize a story in an attempt to make some sort of point. Sad indeed…

Detroit Bred on February 10, 2011 at 4:28 pm

wow white boy rick….i had the biggest crush on him back in the day….damn..i used to kick it on Nottingham/Mack Barlow area in the 80″s my boyfriend back in the day knew Rick and I met him a few times and just wanted to say I dont know all the facts truth or b/s but in the day RICK WERSHE AKA WHITE BOY RICK was the shitand all the guys in our hood wanted to be him…I believe he has paid his dues..right or wrong and deserves his freedom and to be part of his kids lives…I know a lot worse who r out…

lauri69 on January 29, 2013 at 3:38 pm

Debbie, please delete those lies you posted about Rick Wershe. That is slander. Rick has had enough of that crap already. You did NOT need to maliciously posts lies about him because you have a problem with Bobby Ritchie. Seriously.. please delete that crap. I mean it.

Dave Majkowski on June 22, 2014 at 8:45 pm

Its a shame that our society approves and supports slim balls like Kid Rock, his vulgar music is such a turn off, to me he is the scum of the earth, what is happening to our society,
