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”
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.
Too bad Dolly has sold out to the PC crowd. Dolly Pardon has gone full blown Hollywood. Her audience no doubt consists of Southern country music lovers and Northerners who want to experience a “Southern venue”
Her theme park has as much to do with authentic Country Music and culture as Disney world has to authentic Medieval fairy tales.
Dollywood will be a shell of it’s former self and collapse as tourist attraction. Probably before her mortal demise.
There is nothing original about Dolly Pardon anymore than her shame marriage.
Much as the real Dolly Pardon exists as a silicone, face lifted(among other parts)botoxed Frankenstein horror spackled with
pancaked make-up clown creation of the pharmaceutical and plastic surgery industry.
