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.

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.

This is a joke, right?

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.

"Boycott any anti-American entertainer". We are doing just that and it's quite easy - many of them can't really act or sing to begin with.

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.

Explain to me the difference, because I honestly don't see it.

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?

Can you morph a picture of Tom Daschle with the Dixie Chicks and call them the Daschle Chicks? They are all so ashamed.

Wonderful; the freedom lovers destroying, as loudly and violently as possible, their opponents (figuratively here, but the wish to do it literally undoubtedly is strong). Tell me, what does crushing the music of entertainers you don't agree with politically have to do with freedom?

Stevie Nicks' song --"Landslide"

I understand Natilie Mange has befreinded Stevie Nicks. I hope her bad influnce dosn't rub off. There would be a global warming alert if I had to burn my Nicks and Fleetwood Mac stuff.

Stevie Nicks has chronic fatigue syndrome. Stress is bad for her condition so it's a good idea for her to live in moderation at this time. She has more class than NM. I think your FM and SN collection is safe.

Maybe I could buy a used CD of theirs.

Check the used record stores, they're probably giving them away now!!

I'm surprised you didn't burn them after they played for the Clinton Inauguration.

Here is a photo of FreedomPoster at the Atlanta Rally with "Boycott the Vichy Chicks" on his sandwich-board poster, among other things! :-) That's RobFromGA on the right.
