The hypocrisy LIBERAL public shaming say’s CONSERVATIVES with short memories
“What a disgrace this is. The liberal-left democrat movement in the USA is violent and disgusting. Political differences and peoples jobs should not incite people into public shaming and attacks, its outrageous.”
And I fully agree however:
“Ten years ago today, Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks stood in front of a crowd at Shepherd’s Bush Empire Theatre in England, and uttered these now infamous words: “Just so you know, we’re on the good side with y’all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas.”
It seems like a broken record to repeatedly say, “This is NOT a them versus us issue.” This is a political bullshit issue followed by those not taking the time to look deeper into the very shadowy mirror of cons and slight of hands and public relations spin specialist preying on those taking shortcuts by reading only the headlines and having an abundance of selected memory.
But I digress~
“Despite numerous clarifications and apologies from Natalie Maines and the Dixie Chicks, a full on boycott of their music was called for by pro-Bush, pro-war, and pro-American groups. Their single “Landslide” went from #10 on the Billboard charts, to #44 in 1 week, and the next week fell off the charts completely. Radio stations who played any Dixie Chicks songs were immediately bombarded with phone calls and emails blasting the station and threats of boycotts if they continued. Even radio DJ’s and programmers who sympathized with the Dixie Chicks were forced to stop playing them from the simple logistics nightmare the boycott created. Some DJ’s who played the Dixie Chicks were fired.”
Say what you wish, I rest my case~
