Dixie Chicks – deserve mainstream progressive support

The Dixie Chicks had fame and fortune and talent in 2003. They had the nerve to stand up against the president and the Bubba wing of the Republican Party at a time when most people were not speaking out. As progressives, whether we like their music or not, we should embrace them. They spoke truth to power and they were right. I wouldn’t be surprised if Karl Rove was behind the boycott of the Dixie Chicks albums and music.
