One of the many reasons why I love hockey. The NHL is the only professional sport that has not let the liberals push them around with their idiocy. On Tuesday, the NHL announced that politically conservative singer Kid Rock was hired to perform at the upcoming All-Star Game on February 18. NHL’s decision was immediately met with criticism.
Liberal members of the media attacked the NHL on Twitter calling Kid Rock a “racist” and slamming the league for “going political” with the choice:
Minorities, people of color and women already feel like the NHL doesn't gaf about them. Having Kid Rock as the All-Star game entertainment just underlies that point.

I’ve never seen NHL fans so united on anything. Congrats NHL. You’re awful.

NHL exec: "Hey! Let's unnecessarily align ourselves with a divisive performer in a politically sensitive time in exchange for songs at an intermission event that no one cares about for a sport that is generally not political."
All: "this sounds like a good risk reward trade-off"

From NHL release: "Kid Rock burst onto the music scene in 1998 with his Devil Without a Cause album and hasn't looked back." NO ONE ELSE HAS EITHER.

I guess 20 years after the NHL asked him to play the All-Star Game, Kid Rock finally accepted and they felt bad telling him they were no longer interested.

Sports writer Andrew Bucholtz joined and gave a platform to the liberal outrage in his report on The Comeback on January 17.
Via Breitbart: Bucholtz continually called Kid Rock by his given name in his report on the gig instead of calling him by his better-known stage name. The writer also seemed annoyed that hockey great Jeremy Roenick noted his delight that Kid Rock was hired to entertain fans at the All-Star Game.
In the press conference announcing the choice, Roenick said that they “can’t get a better guy” than Kid Rock for the game.
“When I talk to people about you,” Roenick said to the singer, “I say, Kid Rock is the most talented musician, I think ever, on the planet, because you can put any instrument in your hand or on your mouth and you can play anything and rock a house and sing any kind of genre.”
Kid Rock replied by joking: “Jack of all trades, master of none.”
Well, I am looking for a tweet that Madonna or Beyonce shouldn’t be allowed to do the NFL halftime game because they supported the Clintons… But can’t find it… imagine that.
But I guess it was ok for Beyonce an ardent supporter of Obama to play the super bowl and btw perform an anti-police anti-white number? If it wasn’t for double-standards the liberals would have no standard.
