Dixie Chicks Whine About Being Put on Free Republic's 'Hatelist'(Freeper's Proud Moment)
NewsBusters ^ | 10/27/2006 | Geoffrey Dickens

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."

That sang about Earl was a coverup to explain his diappearance.

He never did any of the things they claimed and they didn't kill him and hide the body.

Nats mistook him for a ham sandwich and ate him.

Nah, you're a potted plant.

Remember Ollie North's attorney at the Iran-Contra Senate Hearings complaining that he was there to help Ollie and wasn't a potted plant?

I haven't gotten any of the hate lists or marching orders or anythiing, so I'm a potted plant too.

****

That's nonsense too. Some stations quit playing maybe for a minute or two, then started up again. And of course, the Chicks still have an audience on MTV or VH1.

Fact of the matter is that far too few people are all that interested in seeing/hearing them anymore. The audience left them on their own...they didn't need anyone to tell them to do that.

Crissy/Olberman grab like an extra 50,000-100,000 viewers down the stretch of election season, but their avg is like 300-500K viewers, as opposed to 2 million + for the top shows (OReilly, Larry King, H/C)

Playing the victim...LOL...A DJ was recently asked why he didn't play the DXC...he said NO one wants to hear them. Now if a radio DJ is saying that...I suspect most of those listeners do not even know about FR...

This is giving FR lots of great face time... ;o)

Actually I called one and told them that if they played one more Dixie Chicks song I was going to their competitor who had already yanked them. I never heard another one of their songs on that station again.

What Chrissy has done has either intentionally, or otherwise, confused that with the song in the seventh season of south park where the kids attend an anti-war demonstration. Here is a link to the dialogue..you gotta scroll down a little to see it, but dangit if that isnt' what Mr. I sit to pee did..

"And where is Shania?"

Mind you, my car and house are Shania-free zones, and I change channels as soon as I hear her songs - just don't like them.

1995's "The Woman In Me" sold over 12 million copies
1997's "Come on Over" sold over 20 million copies
2002's "Up!" sold over 5.5 million copies (though the RIAA lists it as 11 million, since Up was a double album)

I think she is currently working on the next album.

So that is your right!!!!! Since when must there be a "hatelist" just because some music group went belly up? Since when is anyone required to buy the cd's of any group or artist? I cannot believe the media is making such an issue of this. It too silly for words!

How many artists or groups have had hits, then disappeared, did every one of them appear on some sort of hate list? Typical liberals! Everything is a conspiracy, "hate" is an evil word to be used against anyone who disagrees with their opinion or agenda.

I checked my PDA - found my favorite wine list, reading list and grocery list, but no hate list. I hope there's a downloadable version soon.

LOL

I suspect the Natty one has a whine list on her PDA.

I don't hate the Ditzy Chix, I just don't like them, and I especially don't like them going overseas and damning our president and or country.

I've seens calls for a boycott of them, but in a Free Republic, you are free to call for anything. Doesn't mean you're going to get it, but you can call for it.

If the Natty One & the Chix want to blame anyone for their declining fortunes, then I suggest she/they look in the mirror.

I remember the Chicks failed miserably in the 2004 Vote for Change (read: Please Elect Kerry) Tour. Even paired with James Taylor, they couldn't sell out 3500-seat venues.

What a dismal failure that Vote for Change tour was.

Yeah, it has the lyrics:

But it doesn't imply support for the war in Iraq, like Matthews suggests.

Oops, did Chrissy lie, again?

When a North Carolina Democrat asked Michael Jordan to do campaign ads for him in his race against Jesse Helms, Jordan refused, uttering the infamous line: "Republicans buy shoes, too".

Typical lib. They can say whatever they want and no one should challenge what they say or decide they don't want to listen or buy their music. They still haven't learned to keep their HUGE mouths shut and sing. If I had a great money making career like they did I'd have enuf brains to keep my mouth shut and keep raking in the dough! Guess I must be smarter than them! Ha!

I wrote a "ditty" just for the chickensh** twits......

There once was a fat girl named Nat,
Whose head was as thick as a bat,
Her big mouth went in gear,
and when it was clear,
She said "my career has gone flat!"

"It must be those folks on FR,
They always are going too far"
"They make up a list,
And if they are pi**ed"
"just go on and sell your guitar!"

"Your concerts just won't sell,
And the radio stations say go to he**,
You become sitting ducks,
And your music really sucks,
and my career isn't doing well."

"Now I can barely pay my rent,
'cause I made fun of the President,
my fans now are all mad,
'cause they feel they've been had,
by the stupid messages I have sent."

It would be too hard to pick a top ten. We would need at least a top 100 list.
