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."

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.
Okay! Who called the radio stations and ordered them to stop playing the chicken's music?
Apparently we're on the List of Those Who Don't Get The List. LOL
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.
you beat me to it - i love toby keith i don't know that i've ever heard that song.....i guess the huge country music fan chrissy (with tongue firmly in cheek) must have it on a cd somethere....not!
Just imagine how the chicks will be the "Sick Chicks" if the dems win in Nov. The thought makes me shudder. OHHH, I need another drink!
Okay! Who called the radio stations and ordered them to stop playing the chicken's music?
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)
This is giving FR lots of great face time... ;o)
that was what i figured but could understand how chrissy could turn "Where Were You" into "Remember How You Felt" - too funny!
darn!... still don't know my way around here... where is the hate list? :)
Wonder if Keith Urban will recover from his latest rehab.
And where is Shania?
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.
I know! I guess it's pretty safe to say Chris is not a country fan. :-D
The Ditzie Chicks have been whining for days now, First on Opra, now this, in the media, WAAAA WAAAAA WAAAAA!
Fattie Natie, we get it. You hate America, we hate traitors.
I remember right after it happened Charlie Robison did everything he could to distance the sisters from Natalie and then the next thing you know, they jumped right into the middile of the whole brouhaha....I'm surprised he's still married to the little twit!
We're an "organized machine"? She's obviously never seen a crevo thread.
Well, at least one of them still is!
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..
Scross down a little..you'll see...
He must mean Darryl Worrley (sp) "Have You Forgotten".
Has anyone told them yet that there is a price when you bite the hands that feed you? With Natalie,it is mostly a really bad idea!
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.
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.
What a bunch of disgusting whinie crybabies blaming everyone else for the problems they created for themselves. Typical stinkin liberals
I agree - I'd forgotten Darryl Worley's song until that post.....don't why I would forget though - I absolutely love it! I'd be willing to bet that the song the little fat man was thinking of....
We could send you the double super secret hate list but you will need the premium level decoder ring to read it. I sell these to those who wish them through my Liberian based web site.
KSJ here in Mobile said that if they had enough requests for their latest songs, they'd consider playing them. Obviously, they never received any requests because they're still not playing them.....
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:
Do you remember,
How you felt that day...
But it doesn't imply support for the war in Iraq, like Matthews suggests.
Oops, did Chrissy lie, again?
Can some one post a link to the "Official" FreeRepublic hate list?
Charlie Robison nearly got gutted by association, thanks to his wife.
The Chicks are Hollywood wannabes. They forget who was buying their music. Shows you what can happen when you open the big old pie hole. Nats especially. Hey there is always a price, but people shouldn't gripe when the payments due! Fact of life!
1. Dixie Chicks Yesterday
2. Dixie Chicks Today
3. Return to top of list and repeat
There you go...
exactly....heck you used to see him on the Nashville version of American Idol and after that mess, he just disappeared. His brother does a commercial with his wife for (I think) asthma medicine or something like that. But the association with that stupid a$$ trio almost finished both of them....
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".
I can dig it.
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 can't believe how ignorant they are......
Okay what I want to know is who watches Chris Matthews?
Little fat man!! LMAO!!
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."
Does this mean we've won? Can I leave my post at the local music store now? I haven't had to chase anybody away from a Dizzie Chicks CD for months anyway.
"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."
It would be too hard to pick a top ten. We would need at least a top 100 list.
