What One Dixie Chick Does Not Understand

There is a new documentary about the Dixie Chicks entitled “Shut Up and Sing.” Evidently, there is one scene in it where they are watching the President’s reaction to what lead singer Natalie Maines said while touring:

In one memorable scene, Maines watches news footage of the president being interviewed about the furor that followed the singer’s on-stage comment that she was ”ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas,” which resulted in the group being dropped from most radio stations, as well as protests and plummeting sales. ”The Dixie Chicks are free to speak their mind,” Bush told Tom Brokaw at the time, adding, ”They shouldn’t have their feelings hurt just because some people don’t want to buy their records when they speak out. You know, freedom is a two-way street.”

After watching this footage, Maines repeats the president’s comment about how the group shouldn’t have their ”feelings hurt,” incredulous, and then says, ”What a dumb f—.” She then looks into the camera, as if addressing Bush, and reiterates, ”You’re a dumb f—.”

This is typical of liberals. You see, Bush made a valid point and said that they were free to speak their minds but that people were also free not to buy their records. He said it all when he said “freedom is a two-way street.” Maines does not understand that because to liberals freedom is a one way street and that way is their way and no other. We saw that in Path to 9/11. The film maker was not free to express his views because they conflicted with the left’s rewritten accounts of history. Maines fits right in with her lefty wackos. She is free to say what she wants but we poor schlubs who know no better need to just go buy their records.

Free speech comes with a price. People are free to say what they want but they must be willing to suffer consequences. You may tell your boss in no uncertain terms what you think about him but your free speech rights do not protect you from being fired. No one stopped you from saying what you wanted, you just paid the price for exercising the freedom. Maines had the right to say what she wanted and no one stopped her. But the schlubs who buy music did not appreciate it and exercised their freedom to spend their money as they saw fit. Toby Keith exercised hi freedom when he spoke his opinion about Maines and he was the recipient of her backlash. Her Shirts with FUTK mean F*** You Toby Keith. You see, Natalie did not allow Toby to speak without her backlash but she is supposed to be able to say what she wants and not suffer similar consequences.

Maines has talent but if it were not for the nice looking girls behind her no one would pay attention to her (Thanks Larry the Cable Guy). She fails to understand what Bush said and that is, it is a two-way street. In typical moonbat style she wants to deny others that which she expects to receive.

Screw her and the group. I don’t own their CDs (never did as a matter of choice) and I never will. She might garner more attention if she did what she is probably good at and made a porn film, at least then her mouth would be to busy to spew the vulgarity. For the record, I don’t care if Maines or her group care what I wrote. If she does not like it she is free not to read it, or not listen to my radio program (at Wide Awakes Radio Friday 9-11 pm Eastern). I can promise I will not be playing their music (or any one else’s).

    Natalie Maines is an F’ing idiot. I am so sick of these morons who think that toiling away behind a microphone somehow translates to being anything more that a glorified karaoke singer with the backing of a record company. How about she shut up a…

    What a misconception of freedom…

    Freedom of speech is as much about saying what you want and holding back.
    There’s no point in freedom when your freedom hurts the feelings and freedom of others.
