The Return of the Dixie Chicks (Bill O'Reilly)
Fox News (The O'Reilly Factor) ^ | May 10, 2006 | Bill O'Reilly

Posted on 05/10/2006 10:01:59 AM PDT by RabidBartender

Three years ago at the beginning of the Iraq war, the lead singer of the Dixie Chicks, Natalie Maines, told a concert crowd in London, "Just so you know, we're ashamed the president of the United Sates is from Texas." That statement set off a firestorm against the Chicks. Many Americans saw the quote as unpatriotic, especially in a time of war.

Subsequently, Miss Maines apologized for the tone of her remarks, but stands by her opposition to the Bush administration. Now the Dixie Chicks have a new CD which some stations will not play the lead single from, a song that says the Chicks aren't ready to back down from anything. It's a pretty good song. There is no reason not to play it. At a Time magazine event last night, I ran into Natalie Maines, who is not exactly my No. 1 fan. She chided me for predicting on this program that the new CD she has out would sell just two million units, which is pretty good these days. We had a discussion about it a few weeks ago. She saw the show.

Hmmm, maybe other stations are playing their songs but I have yet to hear any of our 3 local country stations play anything by them since the 'famous comment' by Natalie M.

She could loose all her weight, she is still fat and ugly.

I can't imagine any advertiser wanting to be next to Blixi Chix songs.

Sorry but this female dogs are DOA.

"Susan Sarandon (on Oprah or some such show) talking about how she believed the Bush administration was tapping her phone."

If it was being tapped she should look at her buddies the Clinton's and their P.I. for that answer.

Sick of the Dixie Twits! No one tried to shut them up, no one tried to keep them from talking. They're free to say and sing whatever they want. But I don't have to buy their garbage music either!

O,Reilly has gotten so consumed with himself, he's lost all reason. As far as the traitor singers, let them rot.

Maines made a huge miscalculation with her stupid foray into the political arena and has been stunned by the backlash.

What I don't understand with artists is whether they make these statements due to an obsession with self and thinking that others want to hear what they think or if they honestly believe most people agree with them.

>>You have a right to reject her beliefs and not to buy her stuff. But to punish her further is not in the spirit of America.

And that's "The Memo."<<

What do you expect from Blowhard? He defended Dan Rather, and opposed the Swift Boat Vets.

For a brief moment, Apple was pushing their song "Not ready to Play Nice" on the ITunes site...then they gave up. Don't know how well the song is doing, but I haven't heard it played on my country music station here in N. CA.

I look at it as if I buy their stuff then I am supporting them in what they say...good music, good movie, good don't matter anymore it's what do they believe and if it is opposed to my view, then they can stick it....well except for the da Vincie code...I will see it.

They should follow a few conservatives around any college campus to learn what real censorship is.

I'm never wrong....misguided occasionally, but never wrong! Susan Sarandon is a blowhard, end of career actor with no sense of right from wrong. A liberal with a manifesto that won't quit. That you liked her role in a movie is great for her, but I wouldn't cross the street and spit on her if she was on fire.

On Planet O'Blowhard, apparently being ignored = "remains under siege."

She's not under siege, Bill. She got kicked to the curb by former fans. And if Miz Bigmouth Maines can't take the heat, maybe she should keep her insults about the president, the city of Lubbock, the country music establishment, and country music fans to herself.

You haven't seen "Team America" yet? You should. I'd bet you'd love her comeback, too!
