Skip to comments.Dixie Chicks Whine About Being Put on Free Republic's 'Hatelist'(Freeper's Proud Moment)
Posted on 10/27/2006 10:57:40 AM PDT by tobyhill
MSNBC's Chris Matthews invited the Dixie Chick on last night's Hardball to promote the new documentary Shut Up and Sing and asked them if they felt their anti-Iraq position has been vindicated, to which the Chicks responded with martyred terms of being put on Free Republic's and "Christian fundamentalist" country fans' "hate list."
The following exchange occurred on the October 26th edition of Hardball:
Chris Matthews: "Martie, I get the feeling at the time that you folks, when you made that statement and you all stood behind it and took the heat for it, that the country world out there and country music was definitely for the war. I mean, I think of Toby Keith singing that song, Remember How You Felt' which is basically a pitch that if you didn't like 9/11 you had to like Iraq, that they were basically lining up and saying this was a smart thing for the U.S. to do. It turns out most Americans all over the country think it's not a smart thing that we did."

They had their say......
We had ours.
At least we don't have a regular TOp 10 Progressive Idiots, which would be a counterpart to the regular "Top 10 Conservative Idiots" one finds at DUmmyworld.
Gee, Gnat, I've never seen that list. Can you provide the link?
Ooo...we have a BLACKLIST?
Toby Keith's "Remember How You Felt"?? Did I miss that one?
We have a list? Hmmm... I thought we were independent thinkers! Silly me...
Note to D/C: If you can't stand the heat, STFU.
hatred is not equal to contempt....
It's Ironic about this "blacklist" because while Dixie Chicks were number one target the interviewer Chrissy Matthews is a close second. Amazing how that works.
I hated them even before they gave me a reason to hate them.
I am an equal opportunity hater.
They have the right to try and sell music
we have the right to not buy it!
Hate list? How come I've not been provided access? Hey Moderator!
Some people just don't get free markets. FreeRepublic informs people, and people may influence each other with opinions, but it certainly doesn't DECIDE positions for people. I had never heard of the Dixie Chicks before their anti Bush comment anyway.
And now our positions are COMPLETELY REVERSED...!
Damn, this is really funny....
The left once again shows their ignorance!!!!!
??? Does he mean Alan Jackson's, "Where Were You"?
