Dixie Chicks To Bush: "You're a Dumb F**k"

9/12/2006 7:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's been more than three years since the Dixie Chicks sparked a media firestorm by announcing they were "ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas." Now, the embattled country stars are reigniting the blaze with a highly controversial documentary featuring lead singer Natalie Maines calling President Bush a "dumb f---."



According to Entertainment Weekly, one memorable scene from "Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing" shows the singers watching a news report on President Bush's reaction to their infamous on-stage comment. In the report, Bush says ''the Dixie Chicks are free to speak their mind,'' adding, ''they shouldn't have their feelings hurt just because some people don't want to buy their records when they speak out. You know, freedom is a two-way street.'' After watching this footage, Maines then repeats the president's comment and says, ''What a dumb f---.'' She then looks into the camera, as if addressing Bush himself, and reiterates, ''You're a dumb f---.''

The documentary, directed by two-time Academy Award-winning Barbara Kopple, travels with the Chicks, from their peak of popularity as the national anthem-singing darlings of country music and top-selling female recording artists of all time, through the now infamous anti-Bush comment, and on through the days, months and years of mayhem. The film is set to premiere tonight at the Toronto International Film Festival, where for some odd reason (possibly that our neighbors to the north aren't exactly fans of our nation's leader), it's expected to be a huge hit.

All the Chicks with Dicks are doing is speading hate! Is that what WE the American people want? If so, then they should continue their hateful tirades. I just wish it was a little more intelligent and not so monosyllabic.

Natalie is the dumb f**k. Bush was trying to just say that when they say the things they did, they got all butt-hurt over the fact that people wouldn't buy their records anymore. That's the people's choice, that's what happens when you say whatever you want to say. Things change, views are different. Then to come back and say country music isn't their passion, and it's basically a paycheck, how stupid can you be? OF COURSE people aren't going to buy tickets to your show because you basically just insulted your main income. They've had to cancel tons of shows because they weren't selling tickets. Give it up girls, your time to shine has ended.

I used to dislike Natalie for what she said about the Pres, but after seeing what this man and his "people" are doing to this country... I understand the need to be blatant about what he is... truly a dumbf--k... It is mentioned that he graduated Yale with high marks... hmmm, I wonder how that happened... not by his intellect, that is for sure... he did it the same way he got the presidency, he STOLE it... The Dixie Chicks have my full support now, after all it's "Dubya" we're dealing with. You have to be that blatant. Where is the Democratic "Kenneth Starr" to impeach this lying sack of sh-t?

Bush will be exposed by historical accounts of his misguided Presidency. The Iraq war is one of many things he'll end up regretting. He needs to pull out of Iraq where he's creating a new group of terrorist and start protecting us hear at home. Are Ports are wide open and our nuclear plants are vulnerable.

Shut your mouth Natalie. Nobody cares what you think. Whether or not you agree with him he is our President and we need to stand behind him. Clinton wasn't perfect either and I don't remember you calling him a dumb f**k.

Missy- We went to war with Iraq was because they supported terrorism. And I must agree with the president any country that supports terrrorism should and will be bombed. And lets not forget that in America we do have a volunteer army. Just thought I would throught that out there.

Samantha - So insulting me makes your argument more truthful? You have no argument, just defamatory remarks. IGNORANCE! I have told the Truth about Bush.

Is there any reason that you liberals are so foulmouthed and bitter? Is it because you don't have anything intelligent to say? Could you possibly make a real argument about why you THINK President Bush is a bad leader? I'm really under the impression that you can't, all I hear out your mouths is vomitous garbage. Do yourselves a favor, get your party together, agree on some damn issues without going for each others throats and maybe you might win an election. Until then, the party with the class and intelligence to run this country will do so and good for them! To all you real Patriots out there, don't concern yourselves with people like Natalie Maines, she's a nobody who thinks if she can scream the loudest it will sustain her career. Don't pay her any attention, don't buy into her screeching and she will disappear.

You said it best Julie. Thank you. However, I have a feeling the Liberals here will continue to use bad language to convey their opinions instead of intellectual arguments.
