It seems hilarious to me that liberals give interviews everyday in which they say President Trump is mentally ill considering their constant state of meltdown. The latest outrage to be perpetrated by the left is out in Illinois in the town of Naperville. Naperville is putting on a music festival and have booked Toby Keith to perform at the gala. Enter stage right far left fascists demanding that Keith be dis-invited. Why? Because he played at Trump’s inauguration. They are bringing massive pressure to bear but the festival says they are nonpolitical and that Keith will remain on the roster for the festival.
The Chicago Tribune reported recently that the Naperville Exchange Club announced that Toby Keith would be performing at the annual Ribfest festival, local residents push back hard saying that Keith is too “political” to play.
“In the current political climate, it seemed overtly polarizing and political,” Amy Kakkuri, a Naperville resident told the Chicago Tribune. “It would have been short-sighted for them to not expect this reaction.”
Many liberals took to social media and posted on Twitter expressing their outrage with Toby Keith.
Despite the liberal pushback, the event organizers decided to publicly defend the decision to include Toby Keith in the lineup in a Facebook post.
“Ribfest talent is negotiated and selected months in advance of the event,” the post read. “At no time does the Exchange Club of Naperville make any political statement or endorsement. At no time are artists booked based on their political beliefs or actions.”
Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer even commented on the debate.
This ticks me off. Conservatives put up w liberal clap-trap from Hollywood & Broadway. Now one patriotic country singer is subject to this?
