Toby Keith Getting Blackballed for Supporting Trump & America

Country Star Toby Keith has expressed his political views and supports President Donald Trump.  With this, he is now going through some strife with being “too political.”  Festival organizers in Naperville, Illinois, are being pressured to let go of Toby Keith in their lineup.  Newsflash, just because he performed for President Trump and supports him does not equal “too political.”  He is an amazing country artist and performer and has just as much right as anyone else to show his love and support where he deems fit.

Have we ever seen anyone who performed for Obama as being “too political?” No, of course not.  But Democrats feel it necessary to blackball him because of who he performed for.  It’s disgusting.

It’s not like Keith endorsed anyone in particular.  He agreed to perform at the Presidential inauguration.  Is that a crime? Apparently it is if it has anything to do with President Trump.

Toby Keith said he “does not apologize for performing for our country or military.”

The festival in Naperville, Ribfest is a huge annual event and they have claimed that his songs are inappropriate for the festivities.


On Ribfest’s festival Facebook page, they claim that artists are not  “booked based on their political beliefs or actions.”  Yet, if they scratch Keith from the line up then they would be going against that claim.

“THIS ELECTION, I DON’T THINK IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE. I CAN’T BELIEVE THERE’S 300 MILLION AMERICANS IN THIS COUNTRY, AND WE’VE GOT THESE TWO AS OUR FINAL TWO. IT’S ABSOLUTELY CRAZY,” said Keith prior to the election.

No matter who one supports in an election, they should not be punished like this.  This is his work, his love and he performs for us not for a political affiliation.

Let us help support Toby Keith and show our disappointment with Naperville, Illinois and their Ribfest festival decision! Please share if you are disappointed.
