The Grand Ole Opry of Murder

by Kurt Nimmo
Dolly Parton. Ms. Parton “hosted” a “special broadcast” of the War and Mass Murder Department’s (otherwise known as the Defense Department) "America Supports You" campaign aired live on the War Department’s American Forces Television yesterday.

Performers at the live show, which included Parton, The Grascals, Hanna-McEuen and Jo Dee Messina, dedicated songs to servicemembers," reports Sgt. 1st Class Doug Sample of the American Forces Press Service. "And in the audience, Parton welcomed a surprise special guest on stage, the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry family, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld."

Sort of like welcoming Herman Goring, Martin Bormann, or Heinrich Himmler into the family.
After thanking Parton, the other artists and country music lovers from around the world for supporting the military, the secretary presented a special message to troops watching the program overseas and those listening here at home.

“I’d like to say to each of them, volunteers all, ‘Thank you so much for your service to the country. And thank you to your families and your loved ones as well because they too sacrifice, and we appreciate them,’” he said.
Is it possible “country music lovers from around the world” support invading sovereign nations and killing thousands of innocent people?.....

Country music breathes "patriotisim and apple pie."

The same singers who (like Toby Kieth) who would "Put a foot in your ass" when adressing Iraq (and blaming them for 911) will back the war they have always backed.

Why would anyone be surprised?

For those who live outside of the realm of "country" USA, it must be hard to understand these people. The denizens of the Grand Ole Opry are an uneducated simple folk. They are wise in the ways of common sense - but woefully lacking in sophisticated reasoning; hence, they are easily fooled. They see the world in a simplistic black and white frame that has no historical reference outside of the Civil War, and even that reference is poorly informed. Their "worldview" is secular - their concerns are usually limited to a blue-collar paycheck, who's being unfaithful, and cold beer and rifles. As the poster said, "Why would anyone be surprised?" when one understands the realm of the simples.
