Dixie Chicks Boycott Coordination thread
14 | Live Free or Die

Posted on 03/14/2003 1:37:03 PM PST by Live free or die

This is a thread for people who want to support a nationwide boycott of the Dixie Chicks for their unbelievable statements in another country!

Here in Virginia, I have yet to hear any of their songs and wish to keep it that way for a long long time.

There are a lot of websites out there with on-line polls that will respond to a good FReepin'. This is the place for FReepers to post links to radio station websites.

Let's roll!!!

This is ClearChannel Radio's flagship. If you don't know who ClearChannel is, they own more stations than anyone in the U.S.

I already disliked the Dixie Hicks. This is yet another affirmation of why I do.

I emailed WCOL in Columbus, OH. This is the reply I got from one of the DJ's

Keith-

Thanks for your note! Although shocking, but maybe not so shocking of Natalie Maines comments on George Bush, in the end the public will decide if she shot herself in the foot by making those comments and not buying Dixie Chicks cd's...

Agree or disagree, she, like every other American has a constitutional right to their own opinion.

Thanks again for your concern and I do understand your frustration at a time like this.

Joe Boxer

Afternoons 3-7p

92.3 WCOL

From what I can tell, he told me to go take a flying leap.

in case you guys didn't know, you made the AOL front page?

ok ok, so FR wasn't mentioned specifically, but I think we all know who the mass emails and messages to the sponsors are coming from ;)

Don't trash their CD's! Sell them at a garage sale or on EBAY, and PREVENT someone else from buying a new copy and giving these skanks another royalty payment. Then if you like, donate the proceeds to the Boy Scouts, or the Bush campaign, and send the Dixie Skanks a note about what you did and why.

Here is the reply I got from Lipton.

"Dear:
Thanks so much for writing!

We are writing in response to your comments regarding our sponsorship of the Dixie Chicks, "Top of the World Tour". We certainly apologize and are grateful you have chosen to share your thoughts.

As a manufacturer we feel it is a major responsibility to provide our friends and consumers with the most creative and entertaining means of sponsorship possible.

We have a long history of presenting "tasteful" advertising, promotional, and sponsorship efforts to the public. We certainly do not wish to offend anyone. In developing our promotional efforts, Unilever and its agencies may not always anticipate all possible implications of a specific campaign.

We will certainly forward your comments to the Marketing staff. Consumer comments are very important and evaluated on a regular basis.

We do thank you for your interest!"

I have been boycotting them since before they were a group. I simply don't like singers or groups whose primary quality is their willingness to be slutty.

Move on people...there's nothing to see here. So the blonde bimbo said something disparaging about our President. I do not in any way condone, but ENOUGH. Don't listen to their music, don't buy their CDs, don't go to their concerts. But for crying out loud let it go. Find something more mentally stimulating to discuss PLEASE.

Has anyone already bought tickets to one of their concerts, and are now regretting it? You can't take them back for a refund unless the venue cancels the concert. But if you bought the tickets with a credit card (as most people probably do), you still have an option.

If your tickets are being delivered by mail, and you have not received them yet, when you do, mark "return to Sender" on the envelope and send it back. Then notify your credit card company that you never received the tickets, and have them remove the charge from your account. The credit card company must do this! It is then up to the vendor to prove that you did receive them. Without that proof (certified delivery, return receipt etc.), the credit card company will not reinstate the charge.

If you have already received the tickets by mail, you can do the same thing as long as you didn't have to sign for the tickets. Of course, you can't use the tickets after this without getting into legal trouble. Once you verify that the charge has been reversed, burn the tickets.

If you picked them up in person and paid with a credit card, you still might be able to have the charges reversed. Credit card companies will reverse charges for services if you are not satisfied with the service. You could claim that the concert is no longer what you originally bargained for when you bought the tickets - that the product or service is now damaaged or tarnished in your eyes. Again, once you dispute the charge, the credit card company must reverse the charge and it is the responsibility of the vendor to prove that the charge is valid.

I thought of this because my fiancee just went through something like this. She is a lawyer, and she had a client that didn't like what my fiancee told her. My fiancee told her exactly what she could expect to get in court, did all of the paperwork and prepared for the court appearance. The client decided to get another lawyer, and almost a year later, disputed the credit card charge stating that she was dissatisfied with the service my fiancee provided. They took the money out of her account immediately, and she was unable to get them to reinstate the charge, even though she was able to prove that the client got in court exactly what my fiancee told her she would get, even with a new lawyer.

So spread the word, Freepers!

Nobody's stopping Natalie from having her say. She has total freedom of speech. And since I am not an agent of the government, I don't even have the ability to threaten said freedom. Boycotts do not threaten Freedom of Speech. Why shouldn't we also have the freedom of what to buy and what not to buy?

I e-mailed the "Soldier's Letter to Natalie Maines" to WYYD 107.9FM here in Virginia. I also e-mailed it to Fox News, Sean Hannity and others.

A little while ago I would have been more than willing to do just that and chalk up their statements to ignorance and that'd be that. But I've been doing too much "moving on" lately. So no. I will not forget. I will not forgive.



I'm mad as hell and I'm not gonna take his $hit anymore! But in the end you don't have to support the FReep and you can continue buying their music and listen to them all you want and we (their detractors) won't stop you. I would very much appreciate the same courtesy.

It struck a nerve with me as well. Something about doing it on stage and what they said about our president.
I'm in this for the longterm.

You're missing the point lulabelle. These were C&W stars not lesbian pop stars. C&W fans are OVERWHELMINGLY conservative and patriotic to the hilt. This started Wed night and we Freeped their fansite with messages, by midnight the band had already posted a "disclaimer". Thursday the first stations were removing the band from their playlists and it is still growing today. Blood is in the water and these b1$#%s are going DOWN! Careers and fortunes are being threatened and torn asunder as we speak. Managers are shaking in their boots wondering what to do with storm that WE raised. The butterfly has started a hurricane.
