Charlie Daniels' Open Letter to the Hollywood Bunch"

TallTexian's "America Forever"  
"Charlie Daniels' Open Letter to the Hollywood Bunch"


"Charlie Daniels' Open Letter to the Hollywood Bunch"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


OK -- Let's just say for a moment you bunch of
pampered, overpaid, unrealistic children
had your way and the U.S.A. didn't go into Iraq.

Let's say that you really get your way
and we destroy all our nuclear weapons
and stick daisies in our gun barrels
and sit around with some white wine and cheese
 and pat ourselves on the back,
 so proud of what we've done for world peace.

Let's say that we cut the military budget to
just enough to keep the National Guard
on hand to help out with floods and fires.

Let's say that we close down
our military bases all over the world
and bring the troops home,
increase our foreign aid
and drop all the trade sanctions
against everybody.

I suppose that in your fantasy world
this would create a utopian world
where everybody would live in peace.
After all, the great monster,
the United States of America,
the cause of all the world's trouble
would have disbanded it's horrible military
and certainly all the other countries
of the world would follow suit.

After all, they only arm themselves
to defend their countries from the mean old U.S.A.

Why you bunch of pitiful, hypocritical,
idiotic, spoiled mugwumps.
Get your head out of the sand
and smell the Trade Towers burning.

Do you think that a trip to Iraq by Sean Penn
did anything but encourage a wanton murderer
to think that the people of the U.S.A.
didn't have the nerve or the guts to fight him?

Barbra Streisand's fanatical and hateful rankings
about George Bush makes about as much sense
as Michael Jackson hanging a baby over a railing.

You people need to get out of Hollywood
once in a while and get out into the real world.
You'd be surprised at the hostility you would find out here.

Stop in at a truck stop and tell an overworked,
long distance truck driver that you don't think
Saddam Hussein is doing anything wrong.

Tell a farmer with a couple of sons in the military
that you think the United States
has no right to defend itself.

Go down to Baxley, Georgia and hold an anti-war rally
and see what the folks down there think about you.

You people are some of the most disgusting examples
of a waste of protoplasm I've ever
had the displeasure to hear about.

Sean Penn, you're a traitor to the United States of America.
You gave aid and comfort to the enemy.
How many American lives will your little,
"fact finding trip" to Iraq cost?
You encouraged Saddam to think
that we didn't have the stomach for war.

You people protect one of the most evil men
on the face of this earth and won't lift a finger
to save the life of an unborn baby.
Freedom of choice you say?

Well I'm going to exercise
some freedom of choice of my own.

If I see any of your names on a marquee,
I'm going to boycott the movie.
I will completely stop going to movies if I have to.
In most cases it certainly wouldn't be much of a loss.

You scoff at our military whose boots
you're not even worthy to shine.

They go to battle and risk their lives
so ingrates like you can live in luxury.

The day of reckoning is coming
when you will be faced with the undeniable truth
that the war against Saddam Hussein
is the war on terrorism.

America is in imminent danger.

You're either for her or against her.
There is no middle ground.

I think we all know where you stand.

What do you think?

God Bless America!

Charlie Daniels: A TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOT!

...I really love the stanza in which he says, 'you scoff at our troops, whose boots you're unfit to shine.'

What a guy!

Charlie Daniels wears a cowboy hat. And you can bet the wusses in Europe hate him too.

I love the "Cowboy" slur! What is more American?

This is absolutely the most beautiful letter I've read! I wish more celebs would come out like this and K.O. the celeb traitors like Charlie just did.

I think I need to go out and buy a few Charlie Daniels CD's...

When I was six, my grandpa gave me CD's "A Decade of Hits" album. I still have it (one of the few tapes I still own). After 9/11, I found myself listening to the song "In America" quite a lot.

Way to go Charlie.
Oh how I wish these sorry celebs would head to Iraq and become human shields.
Maybe then we could get this show on the road.

I'm sorry, but this missive is waaaay to simple & plain spoken to be accepted by the "enlightend" [a la Sowell] in our society.

I agree with you on sending a copy to the Dixie Chicks--I am still mad at that cheap shot taken against Bush when they knew they would be in a receptive audience. I would love to see them try saying that in Texas. Charlie Daniels letter expresses alot of the frustration I am having right now with celebrities--who probably don't spend 30min. a day reading articles on this situation-- giving us their anti war and anti Bush diatribes. I would even except it better if this was several months ago before our troops were so heavily amassed in the Middle East. It is now time to stand behind our soldiers and President Bush! Thank you Charlie Daniels!!!!

Some of the music chains will give you some credit for your Dizie Chicks CD's when you go to by your Charlie Daniels.

AMEN! The devil went down to Hollywood and he was lookin' for souls to steal.... A Man with ba--s that i would and will stand next to if need be. Yes, i'm a fan and fellow proud american that is also boycotting Hollywood movies. i wish i had the opportunity to go "toe-to-toe" with a few of those @*$&%!&*@& just to "vent" frustrations of course. Did Alec ever leave? Maybe he'll take Pean Senn and a few other wimps with him to Iraq, North Korea, or France; anywhere but where they don't belong. How many of our family members have fought and died for these scumbags? Don't let the door hit you in the --- on the way out boys. Still waiting for action.

The French sure don't understand us. Growing up, what American didn't want to be a Cowboy. From Alan Ladd in SHANE, to the "Coop" in HIGH NOON. Cowboys represented moralitly, rugged individualism, and protecting the downtrodden. Oops, forgot THE DUKE in TRUE GRIT.

The Eurotrash still have their derrieres(wussey French word) because of those awful cowboy Americans.

So sorry, no one I know feels Cowboy is perjorative

I know; just recalling how he slammed x42 for his salacious behavior in the Oval Office with Monica brings a smile to my face.

...One of a handful of sane celebrities-you can also add Lee Majors to the list of good guys, too.

Anyone here like me? You enjoy watching an actor or actress. One of my favorites these days is Nicole Kidman and I just keep saying "Please, oh please keep your mouth shut please and do your job!! I don't want to hear any stupid stuff - your job is to help us all ESCAPE reality, not confront us with the "whacky reality" of political Hollywood. So Shut up! Or I'll have to stop watching your movies."
