Lead Dixie Chicks singer and chronic Foot-In-Mouth Disease victim Natalie Maines has raised the ire of country music fans yet again. You may recall in 2003, while being paid for singing on foreign soil (London), Ms. Maines gleefully told her British customers: ”We’re ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas.”
Now the annoying child is spouting off and insulting her own customer base: those of us that enjoy country music.
Dixie Chicks’ Natalie Maines rips country music, fans – National Ledger
Maines says she’s finished with the genre and is none too pleased with the fans, basically labeling them as redneck hicks. She tells Entertainment Weekly, “the stereotype is true.”
“So I’m pretty much done. They’ve shown their true colors. I like lots of country music, but as far as the industry and everything that happened… I couldn’t want to be farther away from that,” Maines told EW.
Ah, but she’s not done. Not only does she hate country music (the genre whose fans lined her pockets with money), she turns on the free market and democracy that made her rich as well.
“The entire country is controlled by money. And I think that’s what people feel, they don’t — their voice isn’t heard. They don’t have a say. It’s corporate America. My friend made up the word corpocracy. I love that word.”
I’m guessing the Chicks’ will be headlining the 2008 Democrat National Convention on opening night at Berkeley Auditorium.
Anyway, I need your help. When I woke up this morning, one of my local country stations, WSOC-FM, was all abuzz about Maines trashing those of us who made her famous and enjoy country music. They are now soliciting emails to consider whether to dump the Dixie Chicks from the playlist altogether. According to the Entertainment Weekly article after all, the Chicks are turning away from country and going rock. So I don’t see a reason for a country music station to play them anymore at all.
Please email the Programming Director at WSOC and ask him to remove Dixie Chicks from the playlist for good. They can have the liberal Hollywood crowd swoon over them — and leave Real America to the rest of us.
