While little liberal scumbags slam America by sitting during the National Anthem while making MILLIONS of dollars, legendary rockers KISS are taking a very different approach.
KISS is one of the all-time LEGENDARY rock bands that not only put on one of the most spectacular shows but are also patriots that love America and show respect to our heroes that serve the greatest country in the world-AMERICA!
During one particular concert, the band stopped in the middle of the show and decided to do the Pledge of Allegiance.
Truth Revolt reports that Kiss is on their “Freedom to Rock” tour, which launched on July 4th, and as they’ve done before, Kiss put their patriotism and love of our military in the forefront by giving Hiring Our Heroes $150,000 and selecting a current member of the National Guard or Reserve in all 32 cities of the tour to be a roadie for the day to work backstage with the crew and prepare for the evening’s concert. In addition, Kiss partnered with Veteran Tickets Foundation which offers discounted tickets to veterans. To top it all off, the band also gave $125,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project.
But it gets better. At a recent stop in Worcester, Massachusetts, this week, Kiss brought its roadie for the day onstage, along with other members of the military past and present and led the entire arena in the Pledge of Allegiance, something the band has done before. However, this one had a bit of a special message to a particular NFL player — a not-so-subtle knock to the recent shenanigans by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, lead singer Paul Stanley said:
“You should remember, patriotism is always cool. Loving your country is always cool. Standing up, respecting and honoring our military is always cool. So, to show some respect between pick-throwing, we’re going to put our right hands over our hearts and why don’t we say the Pledge of Allegiance.”
The band then launched into an instrumental version of the national anthem — a slightly more explosive version than Jimi Hendrix once did:
This isn’t the first time Kiss has displayed such patriotism. During their 2014 “Heroes” tour with Def Leppard, both bands hired veterans to serve as roadies. And back in 2011, Kiss donated $1 from every ticket sale to Wounded Warrior, totaling $500,000.
Here’s a video from then with a special message about 9/11:
Now THAT’S what I’m talking about!
Kiss vocalist-bassist, Gene Simmons has been enjoying watching Donald Trump subvert the presidential race, calling it the most fascinating election he can remember and saying it was “bound to happen” in what he calls the “Age of Kardashian.” “He is the truest political animal I’ve ever seen onstage. He has no speechwriters, no editing, no nothing. He’s actually on tape going ‘motherfu%#er.’ You cannot turn away.”
Simmons is quick to point out that he’s not saying he’s supporting Trump. “He has said some very vile, unkind things,” he says. “But don’t kid yourself. He speaks off the cuff, and what you see is what you get. And he’ll double down. If you ask him about building a wall [between the U.S. and Mexico] he’ll say, ‘Fu*k you, I’m going to make it 10 feet higher, just because you asked me.’ He’s not there to be your friend.”
“Trump is not a politician. He does not need your money, and he will speak his mind, God da#n it, whether you like it or not. And he has no problem saying ‘F%#k off.”’
