It appears that some large percentage of “American people” - or at least the segment of us who vote in CNN online polls - are the world’s biggest hypocrites. The lead singer of the Dixie Chicks, a country band whose music I couldn’t possibly care less for, recently stated her regrets that our current President is from Texas, her home state. Now there are radio stations and fans boycotting the Chicks’ music because the listeners are offended that she would say something so, well, “unpatriotic.”
Might I remind the 60-odd percent of people who are supporting this that there are an awful lot of people who are PROTESTING THIS RIDICULOUS PROPOSED MILITARY ACTION? YOU STUPID HYPOCRITES! You can’t say the Dixie Chicks are unpatriotic and then turn around and bitch at Dubya for bringing Armageddon to the Western world, or vice versa. Pick a fucking position and stick by it, or just shut your mouth and sit back.
Who ARE these people, anyway? There has to be some pretty substantial overlap between the segments if a majority of the American public doesn’t support war, yet a very large majority of the voters on CNN think the Dixie Chicks deserve to be boycotted merely because their lead singer expressed an opinion. Wake up, folks. Your musical/artistic/film idols are not perfect and do not necessarily agree with you. If that bothers you, fine, but don’t hold them to a higher standard than that to which you hold yourselves.
Maybe I’m being redundant here, but I fail to see how the Dixie Chicks aren’t allowed to say war is wrong and the President is an idiot when these folks feel that it’s their God-given right to do so.
And just in case any of them are reading this page: George W Bush is a two-bit President who couldn’t reason his way out of a wet paper bag. The pending war is wrong, and Dubya is a fool for not seeing the will of his people. Please, feel free to boycott me, you hypocritic slime.
