The singer Kid Rock spoke out last week to call for Israel to kill “40,000 civilians at a time” if Hamas does not immediately return the hostages that they have taken.

Kid Rock Sounds Off

Kid Rock made these controversial comments while appearing on Joe Rogan’s eponymous podcast last Thursday.

“Only wars we won were f**king ones where we were the most brutal motherf***ers on the planet,” Kid Rock began, according to Daily Mail. “Which, I don’t disagree with what Israel is doing.”

“It’s like, they should just go in there and be like, ‘you know what? We want our hostages back. If we don’t have them back, clock starts now,’” he added, referring to the 134 hostages that are still being held by Hamas.

That’s when Kid Rock really let loose in a profanity-laced rant.

“And f**king 24 hours, we’re going to start bombing motherf***ers and killing f**king civilians, thirty-, forty-thousand a f**king time. So you civilians better f**king pack up and f**king get these f**king motherf***ers. And you go against Hamas. You f**king go against them. We’re not playing f**king games with you,” he said.

Rogan Pushes Back

Rogan pushed back at Kid Rock at various times during the segment.

“You’re not supposed to pick civilian targets,” Rogan hit back. “That’s actually a war crime.”

“You can’t fight war like that!” Kid Rock exclaimed, to which Rogan replied, “But you’re not supposed to pick civilian targets.”

Kid Rock stood by his argument by saying that Hamas frequently “hides behind civilian targets.” While Rogan agreed, he also pointed out that “if you’re a person who’s born in Palestine, you’re f**ked. You’re under their (Hamas’) control. It’s not your fault.”

Kid Rock concurred with this, admitting that those people are “f**ked … by birth.”

“Those aren’t our enemy,” Rogan concluded in arguing against civilian targets.

Social Media Users Respond

Kid Rock’s comments drew a mixed reaction on social media, with some branding them as “disgusting,” according to Newsweek.

“This is just disgusting,” wrote one social media user. “Where is the push back? This scumbag just get to spew this trash about the justification of killing children. Then they scream about ‘protecting kids’ here but it’s all a lie. It’s just a political football for them. He’s advocating dead kids?”

“This man is literally advocating for the killing of 40,000 civilians so that Israel can get back 134 hostages. F****** think about that. 134 hostages is equivalent to over 100,000 people in his eyes. Arrest that man,” another added, with a third writing, “I stand with Israel, but this is just pathetic.”

Others, however, agreed with Kid Rock.

“Kid Rock gets it. Release the hostages,” one user said, with another adding, “Kid Rock should be proud.”

“Kid Rock is a once in a generation type of talent, I am glad he’s on our side,” commented Conservative activist and author Brigitte Gabriel, who also said hours earlier,  “If you stand with Palestine, you stand with terrorism and barbarism. If you stand with Israel, you stand with peace and civility.”

Netanyahu Speaks Out

Over the weekend, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that the war with Hamas could end within “weeks.”

“We’ve already destroyed 18 of the 24 Hamas terrorist battalions, so we have four of them [that] are concentrated in Rafah,” Netanyahu said, according to The New York Post. “We can’t leave the last Hamas stronghold without taking care of it. Obviously, we have to do it.”

“It has to be done. Because total victory is our goal, and total victory is within reach,” the prime minister added. “Not months away, weeks away, once we begin the operation.”
