While Kid Rock has still not confirmed that he's officially running for the Senate in Michigan, he's made yet another move in that direction after performing a political speech at a concert in Michigan.

The rocker, also known by his real name of Robert Ritchie, has never said he would run but has released merchandise for sale advertising a Senate run and started a campaign website. Ted Nugent doesn't believe it's real, but plenty other people do.

On Wednesday, he performed in Grand Rapids, Michigan, at the Van Andel Arena, and stopped performing long enough to recite a political speech that was filled with profanity.

It seemed as if it was planned, as Kid Rock started his speech after playing just three songs. He stood behind a podium and talked to his fans about Black Lives Matter and the KKK, as well as deadbeat parents and Colin Kaepernick.

"Think you have to remind me that Black Lives Matter? Nazis, f---ing bigots and now the KKK? I say screw all of you a--holes, stay the f--- away," he demanded.

"It's no secret we're divided, and we all should take some blame. We should be ashamed that we all seem scared to call him by his name," he said.

That name, apparently, was Jesus, as an image of him appeared behind the singer as he spoke.

"So please almighty Jesus, if you're looking down tonight, please guide us with your wisdom and give us strength to fight," he continued. "To fight the tyrant evils that lurk here and abroad and remind us all that we are still just one nation under God."

But this was apparently just the beginning for him. After Wednesday's show, he's planning on doing a six-date run at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. Some civil rights groups are trying to get these tour dates canceled based on his politics.

Time will tell if Kid Rock's political rant on Wednesday will help the civil rights groups' case or hurt them.
