Naturally when it comes to country music and the Sentient Soul we come to
the heart of the issue of the untransformed egregores lurking in the
unconscious substance of the soul life of the west. This unconscious soul
substance is part of the Political Beast we have let loose recently as the
west broke laws and promoted the pre-emptive invasion and use of any WMD it
cared to use on any country, including the Big One.
Testosterone and Macho crippling patriotism and nationalism in Americas's
soul mentality, blocks, all manner of salvage operations for recovering the
treasures of Fallen Michael Intelligence and breaking through to the
cosmopolitan aspects of the Consciousness Soul. These stubborn and
entrenched points of view have made hundreds of thousands clam up when it
comes to monitoring the moment we are still hovering on presently. The
Weapons of Publicity and Intellectual Soul reporting of the mass deceptions
and betrayals that have come forward to oppose the development of the
Consciousness Soul in the American Folk, will determine in the next election
the type of Regime that has allowed the current disasters in human
development to let this current Bush Adminstration get off scott free.
Now, there are big issues, still brewing under the Spring time sun and we
all know, no body likes to think Michael like thoughts when beautiful Nature
rises and the pressure of war and political opinion evaporate. Yet, this
administration has a long list of side stepped lies and media manipulations
that America is all too willing to forget. America has true Attention Span
Deficit when it comes round to electing a candidate who will not encourage
the faulty, sticky egregorial aspects of retardation and promote again and
again the manipulation and capitualation to big buisness and military
science. We are in a highly Free Region of great spiritual insight and
Intellectual Freedom and we are also waging a very bloody war against those
who wish to keep humanity in a state of retardation. It is that serious for
Here is a slice of Sentient Soul Cheese to chew on. You need to have an
understanding of Jeff Foxworthy as a person who has been able to act as a
doctor for those ailing in the American Sentient Soul of Red Neck land. But
these Rednecks for Jesus and Country goes very deep and Jeff Foxworthy and
our understanding of the Sentient Soul must continue to hold a clear eye on
behavior that is leading to a massive failure of Freedom in the U.S. A
failure that will infect the whole world community as well as the current
freeze on the Press when it comes to seeing that America and its leadership
does not speak for the current Time Spirit what so ever.
"It's difficult, but essential, to understand why. After all, "Red-State"
America has its president, its Congress, its pickup trucks, its NASCAR on
Fox, its domination of the political media, and its war. You'd think that
Red-Staters would be feeling fat and happy. Why then do they sound so
culturally insecure? And why do they manifest that insecurity with such
Much of the answer has to do with lingering sexism within the world of
country music and among white male Bush supporters (the overlap is
substantial). Most of the backlash instigators and participants were men.
The Dixie Chicks are, obviously, women, and in some quarters folks don't
appreciate chicks criticizing a macho, ranch-owning, cowboy boot-wearing
Texan president -- especially when the women are claiming the Texas mantle
for themselves. (Maines comes from Lubbock.)
It's bad enough that the tough-talking corporate cowboys at Enron were
revealed to be lying, sexist crooks. To say that Bush does not represent
modern Texas is to feminize one bastion of American frontier masculinity. It
emasculates Bush and his male supporters, prompting responses ranging from
patronizing to misogynistic. Hence Bush's comment on the matter: "They
shouldn't have their feelings hurt just because some people don't want to
buy their records when they speak out."
The remark is trivializing, sexist and untrue -- none of the women have
lamented that their "feelings" were hurt.
The Chicks are smarter than Bush gives them credit for. They know that the
combination of gender, sexuality and politics is at the heart of this
matter. That's why they posed nude on the cover of Entertainment Weekly.
Scrawled on their skin were epithets they've recently been called: "Saddam's
Angels," "Traitors," "Dixie Sluts." (Notice the equation; any woman who
ventures into a male-dominated arena is slapped down, labeled a tramp.)
This combination of sexuality and politics creates anxiety among Red-State,
red-meat men and probably some "traditional" women as well. The Chicks show
that not only do they have hot bodies, they have something going on upstairs
as well. It is, to use a word that "Blue-Staters" like myself are fond of,
There's also an economic factor at play; the Dixie Chicks are the current
commercial saviors of country music, one of the most successful bands in its
history. They've risen to the top of a musical genre once dominated by men.
In the process, they've broken out of the genre box by attracting cross-over
pop fans, something which country purists tend to eye with suspicion.
It's worth noting that two other country singers, Garth Brooks and Shania
Twain, also broke free of Red-State boundaries by rejecting Red-State
prejudices. Brooks sang in support of gay rights; Twain broke through with
"Man! I Feel Like a Woman," an anthem of female power.
The Dixie Chicks are getting rich in the midst of a recession for which Bush
supporters can't bring themselves to blame the president. No wonder
status-anxious, economically-insecure white men are pissed off. The world is
changing, and they're being left behind.
It matters too that Maines made her statement overseas. Some critics called
that unpatriotic. But it wasn't as if she spoke on hostile shores; the
concert was in England, not France. Still, the Chicks' success in Europe is
another threat to Red-Staters, who are caught up in the process of
globalization, just as we all are, and feel like they have less and less
control over their own economic futures. The Dixie Chicks, however, have
passports to economic success abroad.
And so it's not surprising that some Americans want to take them down a few
pegs. The Dixie Chick-bashers translate their socio-economic anxiety and
threatened masculinity into misogyny, fear and violence. And then they call
