Letter to Dixie Chicks
To the Dixie Chicks:
Letter from radio station website in Lubbock, TX
An open letter to the Dixie Chicks:
Earlier this week, while performing in London, you stated that you were ashamed
that our President is from your home state. I wonder if you realized how many
Americans would be listening. This American was listening. This Texan is ashamed
that you come from my
I serve my country as an officer in the United States Navy. Specifically, I fly F-14
Tomcats off carriers around the world, executing the missions that preserve the very
freedom you claim to exercise.
I have proudly fought for my country in the skies over Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan
without regret. Though I may disagree wholeheartedly with your comments, I will
defend to the death your right to say them, in America.
But for you to travel to a foreign land and publicly criticize our Commander in Chief is
cowardice behavior. Would you have so willingly made those comments while
performing for a patriotic, flag-waving crowd of Texans in Lubbock? I would imagine
How dare you pocket profits off songs about soldiers, their deaths and patriotism while
criticizing their Commander in Chief abroad, even while they prepare to give their lives
to ensure your own freedom of speech? Please ask yourself, what have you done to
deserve that sacrifice?
Do not try to justify your comments by claiming that you made them only because you
care about innocent lives. Never once in our history have we committed troops to war
for the purpose of taking innocent lives. We do it to protect innocent lives, even yours.
If the world leaders of the late 1930's had the vision and courage of our present
Commander in Chief, perhaps the evil men who caused the death of millions in WWII
would have never had the opportunity to harm a soul. The potential loss of millions of
lives in the future at the hands of today's evil men necessitate action.
In a separate correspondence, I am returning to you each and every Dixie Chicks CD
and cassette that I have ever purchased. Never again will I allow my funds to support
your behavior. All you have done is to add your name to a growing list of American
"Celebrities" who have failed to realize that they have obtained their successes on the
backs of the American blue-collar workers such as our servicemen and women.
To Natalie Maines: This Texan, this American will continue to risk his life to guarantee
your freedoms. What will you do to deserve it?
