Linda Ronstadt canned

this is a replay of the Whoopie Goldberg thread -( I hope my thread title doesn't get CENSORED this time )

Oh No -- NOT AGAIN !!!

Goddamn Republicans are CENSORING yet again !

(usual drill ) tasty tidbits from the article :

Quote:
Aladdin President Bill Timmins ordered security guards to escort pop diva Linda Ronstadt off the property following a concert Saturday night during which she expressed support for controversial documentary filmmaker Michael Moore.

Quote:
Near the close of her performance, Ronstadt dedicated the Eagles hit "Desperado" to Moore, producer of "Fahrenheit 9/11," and the room erupted into equal parts boos and cheers.

Quote:
Hundreds of angry fans streamed from the theater as Ronstadt sang. Some of them reportedly defaced posters of her in the lobby, writing comments and tossing drinks on her pictures.

Quote:
Timmins told Las Vegas Sun gossip columnist Timothy McDarrah: "We live in a city where people come from all over the world to be entertained. We hired Ms. Ronstadt as an entertainer, not as a political activist.

"Whether you are politically on the left or on the right is not the point. She went up in front of the stage and just let it out. This was not the correct forum for that."

Timmins said she was wrong to bring her politics to the stage.


"If she wants to talk about her views to a newspaper or in a magazine article, she is free to do so. But in a stage in front of four and a half thousand people is not the place for it."
Quote:
"The hotel's policy is that we hired her to entertain guests, not to express her political views,"
This is the funniest part of the review -- THE ACTUAL REVIEW ! :

Quote:
The only song she had trouble with was "Blue Bayou." She stumbled over the lyrics, seemed to gasp for breath at one point and ended the song in Spanish, screaming the words rather than singing them.Her performance was uninspired and generally flat. She lacked stage presence, doing little more than sleepwalk from song to song.The fiasco at the end was the most exciting part of the show
When are the GODDAMN REPUBLICANS going to stop trying to run their businesses responsibly and give the LIMPLEFT their GODGIVEN RIGHT to pontificate anywhere they please ?

I welcome comment.

Why do you keep copying stories from Moorewatch? Is the Republican party in such sad shape that you have to have paste this stuff in every website you can find? Or are you trying to illustrate that if one democrat has issues, then they all do?

My oh my where have the dipshits come from. Look at the bottom of the screen. You will see something that looks like, "Е 2002-2004 General Mayhem, LLC" This site is owned and run by General Mayhem, not the US Government. General Mayhem can NOT censor you. They can not stop you from creating your own website to spew your filth on. They CAN control thier website how ever they wanted. If they wanted to rename your username to MrCumsalotinhismouth they could and there is nothing you could do about it. Are you are going to hypocriticly suggest that General Mayhem is NOT allowed to control thier speach so that you may have unlimited speach on property you dont own?

You dont have a "GODGIVEN RIGHT to pontificate", as you put it, anywhere you please. You have the right of free speach on public property, your own private property and private property where you have been given permission. She was given permission to sing songs on private property she did not own, not to express political views. Are you going to suggest that her non-right of political speach on private property that she doesnt own supersedes the 1st amendment right to be politicaly impartial?

just like i said in the other thread

when you are an entertainer and you make money from your performace and or perceived opinions of you you have to be mindful of what you say.

you are paid to perfrom and to bring people in, when you hinder that you get fired, it's bussiness not free speech

How was your previous thread censored? I don't read all such threads anymore.

The second this happens to a conservative, those of us who are intelligent will be expecting that conservative to decry "censorship."

Why do you have to make shit up to add to your idiotic thread? Isn't the Ronstadt thing enough? You gotta go and make shit up...

Quote:
I welcome comment.
You're an idiot. (see above)

As for Ronstadt, if all she did was dedicate a song to Moore, then everyone involved seriously overreacted.

I dunno, but this doesn't seem out of line.

Just at the beginning, it seems like she's saying: "Desperado (Moore), why don't you come to your senses?" Maybe she offended Moore supporters or something.

She should only dedicate songs to republicans. Songs about corruption, evil, incompetence, and stupidity. But at LEAST they'll be deedicated to republicans.

I consider this to be alot like the Dixie Chicks. They had every right to say what they wanted. And the rest of America had the right to call them stupid fucking blonds (including whats her name who cant decide if she is blond or brunette)

1) because there's quite a bit of truth in what's posted. you have to sift through the rubbish but it's usually very true.
2) implying that this has anything to do with the republican party proves that moore is indeed in the pockets of democrats.
3) why do you keep on bringing up democrats/republicans? you have to be a republican to think that moore is a douchebag?
