Kid Rock’s Nashville bar allowed to use “controversial” signage

Rate this post

Yet liberals are completely ok with kids being exposed to pussy hats, #shoutyourabortion, the LGBT agenda, a young drag queen dancing in clubs for money and adults of the opposite sex using public restrooms.

I guess it’s only “family friendly” and “considerate” when it fits a leftist agenda.

From Fox News: A proposed sign for Kid Rock’s new bar in Nashville caused a bit of controversy among local officials, who deemed it inappropriate.

The singer’s Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock and Roll Bar and Steakhouse on Lower Broadway opened recently and the sign’s design didn’t sit well with everyone.

A mock-up of the image was hung in the business’ window, which features a guitar that also looks like a woman’s (how do they know it’s a woman’s?) backside with a donkey in the middle, serving as a cheeky play on the bar’s name.

City council member Freddie O’Connell was not a fan of the image, however, and told News Channel 5 he didn’t want something like that hanging in a family-friendly area.

The Metro Council voted on the sign Thursday night, which they do on all proposed signs that hang over the sidewalk in that part of the city. Despite some members’ reservations, it was approved 27-3, Channel 5 reports. “If we stop something on the principle of taste, we do move pretty quickly into a legal gray area inviting a lawsuit against Metro for saying we’ve infringed someone’s rights,” O’Connell told WKRN.

Councilwoman Tanaka Vercher feels that the sign is “inconsiderate” of those who want to frequent the area with their children, WKRN reports.

Many parents who were questioned about the nature of the sign didn’t have a problem with it.

“I wouldn’t take the kids, but I think there are some things you’re going to see when you’re walking down here,” Ky Gressman told WKRN. “You just have to make choices as parents if you want to be down here or not.”

“My children are too little to understand but I don’t think it’s derogatory or anything,” said parent Megan Goins. “It’s just a tush.”

  1. How can that sign be offensive when considering the things being taught in public schools to students starting in kindergarten?

     
  2. Whew! For a second there, I thought they were going to ban the sign for the use of the word “honky!” O’Connell and Vercher are both right, but as all of Civilization has descended into moral filth, I would say this sign is the least of it.
    But when all is said and done, here we have parents taking their children to gay pride parades and allow them to see fully naked men?? And a sign like this is offensive to some?? Meanwhile, all social media is censoring away!

    In the meantime, Hillary Clinton’s successor, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes’ star may very well be rising. We actually have, in her, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and others an actual Bolshevik wing of the Democratic Party, just ITCHING to turn America into the next Venezuela. Let’s see what they do to the First Amendment when they take over!

     
  3. I think there is a distinction between “offensive” and “obscene”. “Offensive (as we see almost daily) can now mean “anything”. “Obscene” is generally based on what are considered to be acceptable social norms.

    It is definitely OK to be offended. I have no intention of attempting to go through life without offending anyone. That isn’t even possible, especially now.

    Unlike television channels and the like, a person cannot really avoid signs. So some consideration must be made to sensibilities and generally accepted material. I don’t see anything particularly wrong with this sign although I can see that it might be “offensive” to some. On the other hand, censors are generally ALWAYS offensive to me.

    I think we’d do well not to encourage more “triggered” snowflakes by rewarding their whiny behavior. I don’t care if they hang out in front bawling their eyes out.

     
    • I have to say, Lophatt, I didn’t get it the first time I read this, and had to go back to see what was objectionable.

      I think it’s such a stretch to imagine this as obscene or offensive that it’s simply stupid.

       
  4. What a disgusting sign. No decency at all. They should have voted it down. Well, I’ve gotta go now. Office party down at HOOTERS! Followed by late night at Pure Pleasure Topless Bar and winding the night up at Madame Devine’s Massage.
    Sodom and Gomorrah, now available in the drive thru.
    If the food was any good you wouldn’t have to wave an ass in front of people to get their attention.
    Or a Guitar or hat for that matter.

     
  5. Some ‘Unwoke’ progressives will mistake Kids bar for a voter registration location.

     
  6. Trash, simply smelly trash!
