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"?
I didn't know we had a 'hate list.'
I believe he's conflated Alan Jackson's "Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning?" with Toby Keith's "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue."
Hey Chris! Hire a fact checker.
I guess they're making the rounds again. They were on Larry King the other night.
Thank GAWD for the remote and my vcr/dvd player.
LOL!! That's what I thought, too. Nice research, Matthews.
What is that old saying? " I don't care what they say as long as they are talking about me" Feel GOOD CHICKS !
Damn it! First I didn't get the memo, and now I don't have the HATE LIST.
I tuned in long enough to notice the body language. Was in just me or did the two skinny ones look like they were leaning away from the little fireplug-shaped one? I don't think they're too happy with What's-Her-Name.
Chrissy! Chrissy! Wake up! You were talking in your sleep again.
Hate list ping??
I think they're mixing up a couple song that came
out at the same time.
Toby Keith sang "Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue"
Daryl Worley sang "Have you Forgotten" about 9-11.
And don't forget their shot on Oprah this week.
Did they threaten EARL of follow through?
Matthews shows again that he doesn't research anything. Toby Keith doesn't even have lyrics that say "Remember how you felt", let alone a song title.
Also, it's so funny that for the past 8 months, the media has been propping up the Chicks, and how they were going to make it anyway.....then they flop like a cheap hooker.
LOL - Everyone's fault but their own. Typical impotent liberals.
We win again in '06. HAHAHAHAHA!
A good way to get the D/C's, or any other Lib, to shut up is to put them on "Hardball with Chris Matthews". Chrissy won't let any guest get in a word edge-wise.
LoL. Chrissy is such a funny POS. What on earth makes NBC think he should have a job? It's certainly not his ratings!
Prissy Chrissy continues to babble while Rome burns.
What am I, chopped liver?
I've been here long enough, will somebody please show me the hate list finally?
(I just know you won't let me see it because I'm on it.)
I didn't get the memo on this. A hate list and a black list here? That's just crap. These women shot themselves in the foot. FreeRepublic had discussions about the Dixie Chicks but I do not remember some organized effort to do anything to them. So what happened with the Dixie Chicks concerts that recently tanked? Did some Freeper go out and stand in front of the ticket offices? Maines is stupid.
LOL! Where are the feminists regarding this exchange by Matthews:
Matthews: "It's great to hear from all of you. Martie Maguire, Natalie Maines and Emily Robison. Thank you very much. The Dixie Chicks, you are great. You're great, great looking too, actually."
What's that about? Did Mathews think they were ugly before?
Hahah - it's okay for them to try to get someone to lose their job (President Bush), but when we try to get them to lose their job, it's hate?
This "hate list" was a top secret document that some Freeper leaked to the Dixie Chicks Times. Right now I'm so disturbed about this act and I hope soon we find out who leaked this informations and deal with them in the appropriate manner.
If pigs could sing I wouldn't listen.
I don't have a hate list either. I am pretty new to posting here, maybe that is why. But, you would think it would have been included in the welcome to the neighborhood package.
Well, they were just a threat. This is what I suspect!
Who maintains the "Hate Ping list"?
We don't hate them. We decided that we don't feel like buying their stuff anymore. There's a difference.
He's the right-wing balance to the Sportscenter guy. Hahaha!
I've been seeing stories that MSNBC may be changing their format and booting the losers to CNBC?
Ya gotta know the handshake.
So she "wasn't surprised" but she was surprised. Guess when logic ability was being handed out, Martie was leaving her brains in her diapers. What a nitwit!
