Natalie Maines, singer (and I use that term loosely) of Dixie Chicks, is still spewing and spouting about the war in Iraq and how we were misled, even though she and her group got boycotted, for stating that she’s ashamed that President Bush is from Texas. Okay, that in itself was one of those “WTF?” moments. I mean, Texas is a state, full of people, and she wants to lay down a stereotype of Texan that Texas equals BAD, EVIL, UGLY?
That wasn’t enough though, as she’s still going at it. Here’s a bit of her statements:
Though Maines apologized for the phrasing of her remark, some radio stations banned the group’s music. The group also received death threats in the wake of Maines’ comments.
Maines said Friday she did not feel vindicated by how the war has unfolded: “I would have liked to have been proven wrong.”
That’s right, she would’ve loved to have it before, whereas Iraqis still lived in terror, where justice wasn’t around, where women were treated like slaves and forbidden to do anything that American women take for granted. She wouldn’t be whining about the war if Saddam was still around, supporting terrorists, and have those terrorist kill thousands of people again. Women in Iraq can’t even voice out like she does their opinions, without being shot on sight or hunted like a dog. She doesn’t care about the opressed people around the world, all she cares about is making money singing what people seem to call “country music” although people like Boxcar Willie would laugh at the very notion.
Quite frankly, Maine hasn’t even be proven right, but she’ll go on believing she is, living in that little fantasy world of her’s. I love how she’s so anti-war, yet she doesn’t have an inkling of the amount of intelligence that the CIA and military has, regarding the situation in Iraq. She criticizes President Bush, yet she’s singing pop music, branding it as country. President Bush is making important decisions everyday while she’s writing about white trash weddings and men who won’t buy her rings. Good grief. Grow up, girl.
