Potential U.S. Senate candidate and musician Kid Rock told off racists and white supremacists during a strongly-worded rant at his concert Wednesday.

The musician was performing at the Van Andel Arena in his hometown of Detroit when he made it abundantly clear he has nothing good to say about racists. Prior to his speech, the stadium was filled with a rendition of "Hail to the Chief," the official Presidential Anthem of the United States. Kid Rock proceeded with a profanity-laden address, ripping into racists and white supremacists, the Daily Wire reported.

In a concert at a high-energy capacity crowd at Van Andel Arena in Detroit, Kid Rock ripped those who "call me a racist ‘cause I’m not (politically correct)," adding that they "think you have to remind me that black lives matter." That wasn’t all; he snapped, "Nazi f—— bigots and the KKK, screw all you ass—–, stay the f— away."

Kid Rock, real name Robert Ritchie, is said to be a potential Republican candidate to challenge incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.) in 2018.

The musician's political aims, however, may be set higher than the U.S. Senate.

"If ‘Kid Rock for Senate' has got folks in disarray, wait 'til they hear ‘Kid Rock for President of the U.S.A.'!" Kid Rock told the crowd.
