THEY DESERVE EACH
Letter from radio station website in Lubbock, home of the
Dixie Chick that spewed forth about our President:
Name: LT Layne McDowell
Time: 01:54:49 PM
Comment: 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 state. 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 not.
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
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?"
