Country music star John Rich of the group “Big & Rich” warned leftists during an interview this week it would be in their best interests not to target his children with their woke school curriculum.
“They better fear ever coming after my kids,” Rich told “Timcast” podcaster Tim Pool on Wednesday.
“I’ll let you come after me all you want to. You leave my family alone. We will die for our families. We’ll die,” he vowed.
“If you said John, you were them, snap your fingers and take me out of here. I mean, right now. As my daddy would say, who’s a quasi-Pentecostal style prison preacher, that I would charge hell wearing my gasoline suit with my water pistol blazing if you ever jack with my family,” Rich continued.
“And that’s what they don’t understand in this country — these liberals and people running our country — that there is a fierce love and dedication and responsibility that we have as parents, that you step over that line and you start messing with my kids, there is no boundaries anymore between us,” he said.
“You want full-contact sport? You want to raise the stakes on what you’re doing to our kids and how you’re, in my opinion, assaulting them in all these ways,” the “Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy,” duet singer noted.
“You’re going to assault my kids? Why don’t you try to assault me one time? I’m going to step in front of these little kids,” said Rich. “Now you’re going to deal with a grown-ass man and a grown-ass woman who got nothing to lose and don’t care what you have to think about it.”
“This is where America is going. Whatever look I have in my eye right now because I know what I’m saying I’m feeling it down in my guts, that is what tens of millions, if not more, Americans are feeling right now regardless of their politics, regardless of who they voted for or what they think about Trump or Biden,” he added with a warning: “You mess with our kids, you’ve got a world of hurt coming your way this fall.”

Last year, Rich said he had heard from other country music stars who said they were being “muzzled” by the industry.
“The list of country artists calling me is growing by the day who are saying they’re being ‘muzzled’ by the industry when it comes to them expressing their frustration and anger about the targeting of conservatives, and suppression of free speech by the powers that be. #BlackBall,” he tweeted.

He also expressed frustration with social media platforms that also appear to be censoring conservatives, especially after the big tech giants kicked then-President Donald Trump off their platforms claiming he was responsible for the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol Building.
“Lost 10k followers in 12 hours,” Rich tweeted last Friday. “It’s an honor to be attacked for professing my loyalty to God, Country and family. If big tech liked me, I’d take it as an insult. #OnwardChristianSoldiers.”
