Dixie Chicks CDís to be CRUSHED at Pro-America Rally (Fresno, March 21)
Fresno/Central Valley Chapter Press Release | March 18, 2003 | Saundra Duffy

Dixie Chicks CD’s to be CRUSHED at Pro-America Rally

Patriotic Americans from FreeRepublic.com web site have been demonstrating at Shaw and Blackstone in Fresno every Friday since the September 11 attack on America to show their support for the President and our Troops.

Recently, while on tour in Britain, the Dixie Chicks criticized President Bush, and though they have issued a pathetic attempt at an apology, patriotic Americans are still furious.

Therefore, this Friday, March 21, at 6 p.m., Shaw & Blackstone, in addition to their normal rally cries, the group will show its disdain for the Dixie Chicks by crushing their CD’s.

“We are outraged by the anti American statements made by the Dixie Chicks on foreign soil during a time of imminent war,” says Saundra Duffy, head of Fresno/Central Valley Chapter of FreeRepublic.com. “We are sick of ‘stars’ spouting anti American rhetoric thereby demoralizing our military personnel and offering aid and comfort to our enemies.”

FreeRepublic.com is an interactive conservative web site whose owner and founder is Fresno resident and Vietnam Veteran, Jim Robinson. Robinson will be in attendance, as always, at Friday’s pro America rally.

Visuals: Large banner, home made patriotic signs, megaphones, American flags.

Hm...I don't have any Dixie Chicks CD's, but I suppose I could buy one to crush.

That would defeat the purpose though, eh? ;-)

Maybe I could buy a used CD of theirs.

See you Friday night!

My wife's response was "I guess their big BQQBs won't help them out now". I said "of course not , their big mouths are in the way." Boycott any anti-American entertainer.

Sorry, but this is just wrong. It's the same thing as burning books. Furthermore, it gives them back the moral high ground. I urge you not to do it.

Sell them instead on Ebay, and send the proceeds to the USO.

As far as I know, we'll be there. We don't have any Dixie Chicks CDs though......and I sure as heck am not going to buy any. I am through patronizing entertainers who undermine my country with their asinine statements. That includes the Baldwins, Streisand, Clooney, the Sheens......all of them! They are not getting another dime out of me.

You all rock. Let Mrs Pasdar know how we all feel about her statement. She and her Iranian husband should go back to iran and leave good Americans alone.

Agreed. And unlike destroying CDs that have already been bought, this could actually affect them financially by depressing the market for new CDs.

Even better. don't even buy one of their CD's. Just scan the CD art and print a Neato label. Place that label on an old obsolete AOL CD. News video cameras won't be able to tell the difference.

More anti-VICHY CHICKS stuff. God I love it. Too bad you couldn't get a permit to use a flamethrower from WWII on the CD's and as much French cheese and Belgian chocolate as you can destroy.

Boycotting the "Ditsy Chicks" is not mutually exclusive with boycotting Cheryl Crow. I have a defective Cherl Crow CD I can donate to be crushed.

Good idea.

Anyone have a video of Yentl to add to the pile??

How about the entire Alec Baldwin video library??

Or a copy of one of Clooney's abysmal "films"??

They sung the song, as many songs apparently are no longer written by the performers. Personally, until this whole issue, I didn't realize all the songs they had sung. I went out and purchased a few of their CDs this weekend because I do like the music. And while I support the troops, pray for their success, and wish them safely home, I will not destroy the CDs I have purchased nor will I sell them for donations. I like the music and will continue to listen to them. Heck, if I did that I'd have to get rid of more than half of the rock bands from the 60s and 70s CDs I listen to as well!!

We need to send a message that if they do not support our country, then we do not want them here. Love it or leave it!!!

I created a smashed-to-smithereens collage of Tom Petty compact discs, records, and record albums. Everything is glued to an enormous strip of posterboard. I plan to put my piece of "art" up for auction on eBay some day.

I recently noticed that Natalie had improved her look by dressing more sophisticated. You can dress her up but apparently, can't take her anywhere. I was enjoying their cover of Stevie Nicks' song but sorry, Dixie Chicks, you should change your name to the Daschle Chicks.

I thought that the proper action to take when one becomes a success is to "give back" to the community. Noisy Natalie chose to stab our community, the U.S. "in the back". People who've been on a stage think they know everything, don't they?
