John Rich, a country music singer and philanthropist, sent a thank-you note to the FBI after being heartened by the passionate conservative response to the FBI raid on ex-president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. The FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago sparked strong criticism from many conservatives. “A BIG thank you to Joe’s FBI for raiding Trump’s home!” Rich tweeted. “You guys just poured 81 million gallons of premium Patriot octane on an already blazing Freedom fire! See, you are good for something after all:) Much appreciated! See you in November!”
Rich is a long-time conservative, and he has never been secretive about it. In the past, he criticized country music singers for their refusal to oppose the Left’s efforts to destroy a culture. He said: “There are many conservative country music singers that just won’t say anything to push back against the ideologies that aim to erase what they care about. Why? You know why. I hope soon we see them start to speak up. The country music industry is out of touch with the audience,” as reported by Daily Wire.
Rich reacted when it was reported that Facebook had lifted its ban on stories asserting that COVID was artificially created or fabricated: “When Conservatives said what this article says they were de-platformed as ‘conspiracy theorists.’ When the Left says it now, it’s headline news. I’m betting this is only the beginning of the truth wave heading our way. Ultimately, truth prevails. #BringIt.”
Rich, whose grandfather served in World War II, has criticized the woke movement by writing, “If the Greatest Generation would’ve had the same attitude as today’s ‘leaders’ we’d all be speaking German or living under the flag of Japan. Patton/MacArthur weren’t fueled by soy and wokeness. It was fierce patriotism and the willingness to die for America that saved the world.”
Rich has something to say about Biden, especially his health. He commented, “In the beginning it’s like, okay, peck at him, poke at him, whatever. It’s really not funny at this point.” “You know, if that was my grandfather and the family is around, we would go ‘hey, grandad, it’s probably time for you to retire and let’s get you somewhere where everything is better and good and a place you can really handle,’” he added. “It makes you wonder if he can’t answer a question like they asked him, is there a crisis at the border and they run him out the door, can’t remember the Pentagon people,” he continued. “What’s going on in the backrooms when they’re making big-time decisions like should we strike Syria? Okay? I mean, what does that conversation sound like back there. Is he part of the conversation?”
