It appears to me that the majority of CH visitors, a majority who have loved their music and have seen and embraced their social stances, which often are political, are interwoven, have agreed to convert the room toward a gathering place for music and memories of PPM's concerts and their friends and colleagues' work as well. |
The " a lot of Republicans ' segment you shared with us, is way off base. Firstly, have you gone to a Charlie Daniels FB page or web community, you can't say anything critical of the miscreant in chief. Or about issues, leaving out the personalities. Try it with Ted Nugent, or Kid Rock.....Democrats bought their music, I own Charlie Daniels, I won't see him in concert as I don't care to hear an amerikan love fest, and that's my choice. But let's not suggest that you can speak to what PPM have taught us. No, they would not take issues concerning Melania, or the personal aspects of trump's life..........but Bethany sang a hymn while being arrested, seen on FB and Youtube...........Noel and Peter often speak to their audiences about the social injustices during their careers, especially so NOW.
We have a dilemma here. I stated last week when someone felt it important to express his disgust with this administration that, from my point of view, we had a consensus agreement to steer clear of politics. I was reminding that person that I would honor the agreement, because I believe that....THE MAJORITY MUST TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE FEELINGS OF THE MINORITY..............that's what that agreement was about.
Ironically, it's that type of mindset, to take one's beliefs and basically say the comfort of the minority matters more, that is lacking from this administration on 1000 fronts.
Lastly, there is a broader topic that would be better suited for some other forum. Suffice to say, people are walking on shaky ground if the so called president calls democrats refusing to applaud him as unamerican, as traitors, and that is acceptable to you. Not once has he called Flynn a traitor, all those involved so far with indictments or confessions, are not traitors, the Nazis in Charlottesville were not called traitors, but Democrats who refuse to applaud the king, THEY are traitors ?......Has Putin been excoriated by this so called president, have you seen tweets taking him to task, murderer that he is.........not a one, but the us press, and intelligence community, THESE are the enemy of the people ? .........You are okay with that?....well, enablers will be judged.
