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."

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.

They have a hate list. They have a black, they have a list, and we were number one.

Gee, Gnat, I've never seen that list. Can you provide the link?

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.

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.

This is great! I can remember when there were just 20 threads on FR daily, and the Dixie Chicks were HUGE!

And now our positions are COMPLETELY REVERSED...!

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 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.

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.

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.

Natalie Maines: "Well, personally, I think the Right did. And I think it was originally started by the Free Republic. And they were very organized in calling radio stations across the country and telling them that they would never listen to their station, when they didn't even live in that town. And we knew that. And at the beginning our manager tried to explain that to some program directors and they were not willing to listen. And it looked like we were grasping at straws, so we just sort of kept quiet and let what was gonna happen, happen because they are a powerful, organized machine, and they wanted to take us down. And they did."

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?

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.

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.

Martie Maguire: "...So I wasn`t surprised we rubbed them [country music audience] the wrong way, I just didn`t think that it would go to the extent it did."

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!
