[The problem with country music is that it assumes our country can do no wrong, certainly not on purpose. There is no room within this country boy mindset for the seizure of our government by interests that seek America’s destruction. His kind defends the American image as though it was a real thing, even if that image is used to harm our Nation. Whenever Mr. Keith and friends learn to look for the reasons for the de-industrialization of the United States and the selling-off of the country to foreign interests he will find that most of those “foreign interests” are actually Americans and their financial co-conspirators. When patriotism is used as a tool and an excuse to plunder this Nation in a fight against enemies who are manufactured by American agencies to kill US soldiers and our allies, then patriotism becomes poison.]
There’s no reason to apologize for supporting U.S. war efforts, American country singer Toby Keith said Friday, just hours before performing at the annual Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo, Norway.
Keith, whose 2002 saber-rattling hit “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)” was inspired by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, said he stands by President Obama’s decision to send 30,000 troops to Afghanistan.
Keith’s appearance at the downtown Oslo Spektrum arena had been questioned by Norwegians dismayed that a performer known for a fervent pro-war anthem was playing at a show focused on peace.
The musician dismissed the criticism.
“If President Obama has to send [more] troops into Afghanistan to fight evil, I’ll pull for our guys to win, and I won’t apologize for it,” Keith said. “I’m an American, and I do pull for our team to fight evil.”
