"If, unlike me, you feel no pride at all, then go ahead and take me off your wall."

Check out this video of Australian singer Beccy Cole. She has been criticized by some of her fans who don't like the fact that she supports the Aussie soldiers, called diggers, serving in Afghanistan. She responds to their criticism with this song.

Good for her.

Hat tip: Blackfive.

Okay, I must be a softy. I cried and showed it to my wife and she cried.

I'm off to go look for a CD of hers.

Nice to see an entertainer who understands what is going on. Most of them are too busy trying to relive their '60s fantasies.

At Beccy Cole's web-site you can download the song and directs you to where you can buy her cd's. She's apparantly a big name in the Australian music scene.

Since we're on the other side of the Equator just like the Somewhereistans, I think she's going to be a poster girl here too.

Someone should send this to the Dixie Chicks.

At first it seems hypocritical to praise her for this lovely and touching song, when we lampoon plenty artists for delving into politics when they are purely entertainers.

I realized that this artist IS singing, her song is entertainment that provokes thought. If she had, in the middle of a concert, got up and starting on a huge rant against hippies and how rag-heads needed to all die, and then you all praised her for it, then I would call it hypocritical.

Audio Artists who feel they need to have their voices heard already have the medium with which to do it, their singing voices. to quote Laura Ingram's book "Shut up and Sing".

Apparently this lady did just that.

Cecil:

Have never posted before here, but had to after watching the video. What an awesome response. Rather than spitting out bitter words about how she shouldn't be criticized for her political beliefs (like that band of chicks -- can't bring myself to call them Dixie), she tells her fans that are complaining that if they don't like it, don't listen to her. She has the courage of her convictions and is willing to pay a price to stick to them rather than cry about how unfair it is to critize her. That's what free speech is all about! She gets it. So many others don't!

Damn. I'd say 'let's import her' but I don't think the Aussie's let her go. I hope they don't.

kirktoe:

Cecil, my thoughts exactly. The DC's are cowards (and just stupid that they don't know there fan base). This lady has the courage of her convictions.

The song is currently #1 in Australia. Someone should get this to Hannity and maybe he can get her on his show.

I am a bit confused though. I thought we were in Iraq all by our lonesome. I didn't realize that we had other countries helping us. At least that's what I've heard the last 3 years.

David:

Henry, I agree, if the Chicks had written a decent anti-war anthem, I would hope that we would let it be. The fact is they weren't creative enough to do that. Beccy rocks because she gave her thoughts via her medium.
