Skip to comments.Free Republic's Robinson A 'Coward' Says Dixie Chicks Rep [BAAAAAAARF]
Posted on 10/09/2006 6:41:33 AM PDT by DaveLoneRanger
Natalie Maines of the 'Dixie Chicks' created quite an uproar the night of the president's decision to declare war on Iraq in 2003. Maines stated that the Dixie Chicks as a whole were 'ashamed' of the Bush decision and Maines said she was "embarrassed he was from Texas."
The group refused to retract their statement, and instead responded to the criticism by releasing their new single 'Not Ready To Make Nice,' earlier this year.
According the New York Post's Page Six, The Chicks' biggest detractor, FreeRepublic.com founder Jim Robinson, reportedly declined to appear in their documentary, "Shut Up and Sing."
Page Six has more: 'Ken Sunshine, who reps the George Bush-bashing Chicks, calls him [Jim Robinson] "a coward. A real man would put his money where his mouth is, but this Robinson guy, he'd rather hide behind his keyboard than have a real discussion about his ideas . . . he's just a chicken[bleep] fraud."'
According to Robinson's rep, Kristinn Taylor, Robinson ducked the interview: "He told me to go ahead and do it."
Courtesy ping, Jim. I'm sure you're no stranger to cheap attacks...
stands and applauds Mr. Robinson
Well that will just drive more people to FreeRepublic. Once we fight off the onset of trolls, a few folks might actually hang around and learn something.
That's not a barf, it's hilarious!
So, they are no longer considered musical talents, just BDS sufferers. Couldn't have said it better myself.
Meanwhile, the Frenchy Chix can't get a gig in a gay bar in Ithaca.
The fat chick will only drive traffic to this site. When they come they will find great free ranging discussion of a wide range of subjects.
Don't buy or listen to said leftist.
You made your own bed, now lie in it, Natalie!
That is one humongous badge of honor.
Free Speech only applies to liberals called Dixie Chicks.
It is funny. The Dixie Chicks have reversed the phrase "it ain't over till the fat lady sings" it is now "career is over because the fat lady didn't sing".
A favorite Larry the Cable Guy line:
"The Fat One needs to keep her mouth shut."
I could see them cutting up the interview, and making Jim look like that nut from that baptist church the other night. Jim did the smartest thing he could in this circumstance. I'd like to know if his rep really said that "he ducked the interview"
More like "You soiled your own bed, now role in it!"
Since it is the Dixie Chicks, shouldn't that be "cheep" attacks?
As Rush always says. never go into a situation where you will be edited to your adversary's liking, with no chance to set the record straight.
Allright folks - are we gonna let JimRob get ALL the glory?
I wanna see those detractors fired up!
I waana see some detractin' on every thread!
We can do this, people!
To the Dixie Chicks: SHUT UP AND GO HOME!
This guy a coward? I don't think so! I am glad Jim Robinson didn't go out and take the bait. They would have just made him look bad.
Here is a statement from Jim HERE.
Statement by the founder of Free Republic:
In our continuing fight for freedom, for America and our constitution and against totalitarianism, socialism, tyranny, terrorism, etc., Free Republic stands firmly on the side of right, i.e., the conservative side. Believing that the best defense is a strong offense, we (myself and those whom I'm trying to attract to FR) support the strategy of taking the fight to the enemy as opposed to allowing the enemy the luxury of conducting their attacks on us at home on their terms and on their schedule.
Therefore, we wholeheartedly support the Bush Doctrine of pre-emptive strikes on known terrorist states and organizations that are believed to present a clear threat to our freedom or national security. We support our military, our troops and our Commander-in-Chief and we oppose turning control of our government back over to the liberals and socialists who favor appeasement, weakness, and subserviency. We do not believe in surrendering to the terrorists as France, Germany, Russia and Spain have done and as Kerry, Kennedy, Clinton and the Democrats, et al, are proposing.
As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America. We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc. We also oppose the United Nations or any other world government body that may attempt to impose its will or rule over our sovereign nation and sovereign people. We believe in defending our borders, our constitution and our national sovereignty.
Free Republic is private property. It is not a government project, nor is it funded by government or taxpayer money. We are not a publicly owned entity nor are we an IRS tax-free non-profit organization. We pay all applicable taxes on our income. We are not connected to or funded by any political party, news agency, or any other entity. We sell no merchandise, product or service, and we offer no subscriptions or paid memberships. We accept no paid advertising or promotions. We are funded solely by donations (non tax deductible gifts) from our readers and participants.
We aggressively defend our God-given and first amendment guaranteed rights to free speech, free press, free religion, and freedom of association, as well as our constitutional right to control the use and content of our own personal private property. Despite the wailing of the liberal trolls and other doom & gloom naysayers, we feel no compelling need to allow them a platform to promote their repugnant and obnoxious propaganda from our forum. Free Republic is not a liberal debating society. We are conservative activists dedicated to defending our rights, defending our constitution, defending our republic and defending our traditional American way of life.
Our God-given liberty and freedoms are not negotiable.
May God bless and protect our men and women in uniform fighting for our freedom and may God continue to bless America.
Natalie's husband, Pasdar's,father was born in Iran.
Hence the new 'Entertraitor' name The Dhimmi Chicks.
For instance -- they might learn that a President cannot "declare war".
Sheesh, they're making this personal. What a bunch of babies.
Has there been an amendment to the Constitution that I missed?
Where can I get a hat like Jim?
It needs to be that big, to contain all of Jim's integrity! :-)
I long again to hear the sound of heavy equipment rolling over and smashing Ditzie Chick CDs.
These people seem to have no clue that Free Republic is a Forum with thousands of posters and not Jim Robinson's blog.
Jim provides a forum for us but seldom posts on Free Republic.
Appearing in a propaganda flick, allowing dishonest Hollywood creeps to cut and paste would NOT be interesting...
Would the Hollywood narcissists come to FreeRepublic to debate if we could take out words and rearrange other words while they were writing their comments? I don't think so. Then again, because we're not puffed up liars like them, we wouldn't do that - we wouldn't cheat - but they would. And if Kristinn is in their film, they'll cheat. It's who they are.
The funny thing is this film will finish off the chicks - but the film maker doesn't care - he'll make his.
You can't discuss "real ideas" with the likes of the Ditzy Chicks! What a flipping moron! With all the publicity she gets, poor Nat will never have a chance to grow up and mentally mature. She'll be stuck with her current "real ideas" until the day she dies.
The 'Dixie Chicks' have never been considered the brightest birds in the barnyard.
It is just like a liberal to pick on a man in a wheel chair. I got money says Jim could out debate her and kick her butt.
Why don't we invite her to discuss her ideas HERE ON FR?
We could have a discussion just like we did with Donna Irey.
Let's see who the chicken shit is.
Natalie Maines spends too much time in a chicken yard, she talks like an ignorant "fowl" (note pun) mouth. Take away all of Natalie Maines Chicken Bleeps and you just have a hyperventilating simple minded idiot.
He is a person better than the politicians I see on the scene right now.
You know what happens when you try to argue with a jackass ( like Natalie)? You just get covered in Jackass spit.
Why would Jim wish to lower himself to associate with these sleazebags?
The first Freeper cabinet.
I'm guessing the Dixie Chicks failed to consider that a Freeper would find it undignified to be in the presence of birdbrains such as the Chicks...
I first heard of Free Republic after the 2000 election. These were the people outside the VPs mansion yelling "Get out of Cheney's house." to then losing presidential candidate Albert Gore, Jr.
I knew then that I liked these Freeper folks right away.
I assume that a good number of conservatively minded people continue to learn about FR today through the constant whining of the Dixie Chicks about this forum.
Thanks for the free advertising Comrade Maines! Keep up the good work. Welcome to any Chick Freepers Babies.
