The Dixie Chicks:
"A lot of pandering started going on, and you'd see soldiers and the American flag in every video. It became a sickening display of ultra-patriotism."
"The entire country may disagree with me, but I don't understand the necessity for patriotism," Maines resumes, through gritted teeth. "Why do you have to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country… I don't see why people care about patriotism."
You know, she's right. Who needs patriotism? I'm way too busy climbing the corporate ladder and glutting myslef on the spoils of freedom and capitalism to get all involved in this patriotism thing. Isn't that what it's all about? Aren't we here on this world just for ourselves? What's more important than that?
We shouldn't believe in a higher cause. How inconvenient. So what if our country is attacked. So what if it's slowly become a hispanic-muslim society. I got albums to sell. I don't have time to care about all that stuff. Patriotism? Hah...who needs it?
If there's one thing about Natalie Maines that I like, it's the way she masterfully summarizes how the Left is slowly weakening our country. THIS attitude, reflected in her words, is the biggest threat to America. It's not the illegal immigrants, the islamo-wackjobs, or some psycho-midget in North Korea...it's people like Natalie Maines and their don't-give-a-damn-about-my-country attitude.
IF America ever falls, it will be because of people like this.
