Don’t Hate on the Dixie Chicks

The Dixie Chicks have said some controversial things. Who hasn't? But some people got all bent out of shape over their opinion on the War on Terrorism. Most people who disagree with their opinion think that the Chicks should stick to singing and stay out of politics.

Now, I understand that since they are in the public eye, they have given up their right to the same privacies that regular people enjoy as private individuals. I didn't realize that being a singer meant giving up the rest of one's constitutional rights as well.

Part of being a good American (according to the Constitution, people!) is to speak out against the government if it is not working for the people. It's written in there! You're a bad citizen if you sit back while your rights are siphoned away. Should they not be allowed to vote because their opinion isn't popular with some?

I think it's very important that people in the public eye speak out for what they believe in, whether or not I agree with any of their opinions, they have the right to voice them. People in the public eye have access to the media that activists DREAM of.

So don't hate; the Chicks are just doing their civic duty. Shame on you for being anti-American and censoring the right to free speech that the Forefathers fought and died for.
