Every conservative I know or have come in contact with get extremely pissed when celebrities/musicians voice their political views. It irritates the hell out of them and I'm not completely sure why, but I have an idea. I think it's because they can't handle the fact that people they look up to have opposing views. It's like their brains haven't developed properly.

Since the majority of the Dixie Chick's fanbase were conservatives, it broke their hearts that they don't feel the same way about GWB as they do. So that causes their former fanbase to completely shit on their beloved Dixie Chicks, dig up dirt from their past, and threaten their lives. It's fuckin pathetic.

The Dixie Chicks are a fucking joke.  Lemme tell you a little bit about the Dixie Chicks.

First, the other two members besides Natalie had a little thing going before, but couldn't find success, so they had Natalie join the group because she has a good voice.  Natalie was never country, and just joined a country group because she wasn't getting anywhere doing anything else.  The other two members are accomplished country performers with traditional country instruments (a fiddle, and a banjo).

Second, People do not listen to the Dixie Chicks to hear a political message, conservative or liberal.  They listen to the Dixie Chicks to hear good music.

Third, It was fucked up of her to go to a foriegn country and talk shit about our president.  You shouldn't do that no matter who the president is, it's a matter of respect and the people that are attracted to country music do not typically respond well when someone disrespects something patriotic, i.e. the leader of the country, democrat or republican.  I would have thought it was bullshit if she said it about Bill Clinton when he was in office.  It's disrespectful and reeks of her attempting to be popular and use the negative press and image of Bush around the world to further her own pitiful music career.

Fourth, and most importantly, the Dixie Chicks have turned their back on country music, and have said time and time again that they no longer want to be considered a country act and have and project the attitude that country music is too small for them.  They have an entirely condescending attitude towards the genre that brought them success.  Contrast that to a beautiful Canadian by the name of Shania Twain, who has sold 10 times the records the Dixie Chicks have, doesn't open her mouth about political bullshit she knows nothing about, and has successfully crossed over into Pop music.  She released three versions of her last album, one with country backing music, one with pop, and one with world beats and rhythms, and has grown well out of Country.  To this day, though, she has nothing bad to say about the genre and she has earned the respect of everyone in Nashville even though she isn't really a country artist anymore.  She's genuine, respectful, and people love her for it.  Natalie from the Dixie Chicks is just a bitter bitch who's pissed she can't run her mouth off without repurcussion.

Fifth, she makes the comment above that she doesn't play a red white and blue guitar for the republicans.  That's insinuating that the only people who are patriotic are republicans.  It illustrates that she still doesn't get the fucking point and has no clue why people think she's such a fucking moron.


She certainly has the freedom of speech, but there is no law that says that you can say whatever you want and others can't.  She said what she said, i say she's a bitch.  Where's my fucking freedom of speech?  She's a silly cunt with a half-ass voice who can't play, or write a song to save her life and relies on her backup musicians to make her music vaguely passable as boring.  If you run your mouth and put an opinion out there, others are going to disagree... and that's how you exclude people from buying your records.

-----------------------

Let me sum it up for the less intelligent amongst us.  I'll give you an example.

Shania Twain.  I love her.  She's so fucking cool, great music I buy every cd she puts out.  I have no idea who she voted for.

The Dixie Chicks.  I can't stand them, and think they're silly twats who make dumbasses of themselves in other countries and then don't even have the comprehension skills to understand what everybody's so mad about.  They voted democrat. 
u mad.... i guess we found one person that cried himself to sleep after that dixie chick made those comments.  *imagines trauma crying while ripping down his dixie chicks posters*

Thats a good plan.  I'm sure lots of people would lump you two in the same category anyway.  Jaded and ignorant.  Fight the power!

No.

Amen.  Anyone who lives in the South is probably well aware of the all the jingoistic rednecks down here who tell you that you shouldn't live in America if you don't support the war.  Of course, already know we can't take Real American seriously because of the sheltered life he lives...dude hasn't even seen a Latino, for fuck's sake!

Now I'm no fan of the Dixie Chicks but you can't deny their success. Wide Open Spaces went 12 platinum, Fly went 10 platinum, and Home went 6 platinum, and probably would have went more if not for the comments. That's 28 million copies sold in the US alone for 3 albums (30 million if you count their DVD, AN EVENING WITH THE DIXIE CHICKS). Not many artists can do that in country or out of country with their first 3 offerings ( I know they had albums before but I'm talking about the current line-up). For some reason or another they were a huge success. They had a right to speak their mind (even though it was dumb for business), and their fans have a riight to be upset. I just hope the people that screamed "treason" realize that their country was founded on treason. There is nothing more American than standing up to ones in power in order to make a change, and since it was an illegal war what's wrong with them being ashamed of president. If Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Canada was found out to be a pedophile and used government money to fund child porn, I'd have no problem saying I'm ashamed of him. That's an extreme example but idealy you should stand for what is right or what you think is right before you stand for what is yours. If I had a son that committed a crime I'd turn him in. I'd lose my son for a few years in jail rather than lose my integrity forever.
