And we can now see that the Dixie Chicks were 100% correct!
"Just so you know, we're on the good side with y'all. We do not want this war, this violence. And we're ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas."
It didn't matter that the evidence to invade Iraq was questionable or that Maines later apologized. The damage was done, and one of the most popular acts in the country became its most hated. Its music was banned from radio, CDs were trashed by bulldozers, and one band member's home was vandalized. Maines introduced "Soldier" with a call for peace, but she would soon find that the group needed metal detectors installed at entrances to shows on its stateside tour because of death threats.
Thank Goodness the hate group Free Republic(that was behind these attacks) was down for awhile! How they acted was shameful!
A little bit of trivia - writing about the Dixie Chick fiasco was one of my first blog posts, long before I had ever heard of bloggingblue or CogDis.
