Something has gone horribly wrong...

...when an American says something like this. This article is about the Dixie Chicks and their struggles with being rejected by a fan base that, as it turns out, didn't like their leftist leanings. Here's the quote that I was referencing to begin with:

"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."

Here is a woman who lives in the freest land this world has ever known. That freedom has allowed her to experience prosperity that exceeds most of history's kings and queens.

Millions of men have bled and died and suffered to keep this country free, and she is so utterly stupid that she doesn't understand our enthusiasm?

Talk about the consequences of an entitlement attitude! She takes every good thing in life for granted to such a degree that she is actually upset at people who are thankful for their blessings!

I may complain about government interference in our personal lives. I may call for extreme reform. This country may not be all that it used to be. No nation state is without its imperfections. But we're a damned sight better off than the rest of the world.

Natalie Maines, you are an idiot.
