Dolly...NEVER cave, and NEVER apologize, to the PC crowd...
Look what it did to Paula Deen, who also tried to appease them.
Probably offends the whine sipping liberals who drive SUV’s and private planes and congratulating each other for being the self-appointed moral authority of our country.
Of course she did, unfortunately.
Everyone should ignore the pc crowd
Maybe her film mates commie Jane Fonda and Lilly (dyke) Tomlinson told her not to.
Another apologist. Enough already.
The writer went on to call the show a lily-white extravaganza”
Those eveel white people gathering together!!
Dolly probably wanted to be sensitive to her throngs of African-American fans.
Dolly is a liberal, has always been a liberal.
My thoughts exactly. I wonder what percentage of Darius Rucker's fan base is black?
they are also called the Dixie Sluts :-)
She’s a traitor to her heritage and a sell out. It’ll close in a couple of years. Apparently, she hasn’t seen her audiences there. Not too many BLM members filling the seats. Just a part of the ongoing cultural genocide against the South and her history, surprisingly cheered on here at FR by supposed “Conservatives”
It’s a shame that the word “Dixie” has been deemed a racist word.
Will “Dixie Cup” be renamed?
Dolly turned her back on the fan base who made her a success, when she called them homophobes, and admonished them for doing Gods work, as though that is a bad thing.
Your ilk and the rest of the Lincoln lovers, who enable these thugs by your comments referring to Southern war heroes as “traitors”.
Excuse me. I have absolutely no use for Dolly Parton whatsoever, but you are going too far when you accuse her of being a "traitor to her heritage." Dolly Parton is from East Tennessee, and I don't know if you're aware of this, but East Tennessee was thoroughly anti-Confederate and pro-Union, even being a hotbed of abolitionism at one time. In fact, when East Tennesseans wanted to exercise their "right to secede" (which Confederates insisted everyone had), the slimy hypocrites in Nashville and Richmond wouldn't let them and even sent a whole Confederate army to keep them in the Confederacy by force.
The Right has its own form of "political correctness," and one of these is that the Confederacy was run by angels and Abraham Lincoln was the world's first "Communist dictator." Everything Lincoln did that "constitutionalists" bellyache about was done by Jefferson Davis first He is forgiven for his centralizing tyranny and his experiments in state socialism (which the Union didn't engage in). There is also a huge case of amnesia over the fact that not everyone from the North was on one side while everyone from the South was on the other. There were many Northerners who took the Southern position while the Union armies were full of Southerners from western North Carolina, East Tennessee, north Alabama, and other places. My own Southern ancestors were Unionists and Republicans. I am as proud of this as I am of being a Southerner.
"South" is a direction on a map and a geographic region of the country. The Confederacy was a political entity that temporarily occupied this area of the country. To insist that all "real Southerners" supported it is ignorant nonsense.
