On Tuesday, a classic hits radio station in Texarkana, Texas, announced that it would no longer play any songs by Madonna, the singer who sparked controversy with her “blow up the White House” statement during a liberal anti-Trump march in Washington, D.C., Deadline Hollywood reported.
The station posted a statement to Facebook, saying:
Texarkana’s Classic Hits station – HITS 105 is taking all Madonna songs off the air in the station’s local programming indefinitely following the singer’s comments over the weekend.
In addition to ‘F-bombs’ in her speech, Madonna talked about how upset the election results had made her including her now infamous, “Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” comments.
General Manager of HITS 105, Terry Thomas, says “banning all Madonna songs at HITS 105 is not a matter of politics, it’s a matter of patriotism. It just feels wrong to us to be playing Madonna songs and paying her royalties when the artist has shown un-American sentiments. If all stations playing Madonna took their lead from us, that would send a powerful economic message to Madonna.”
Liberty Alliance colleague Wayne Dupree noted:
She should be banned!! Hell, she should be arrested and put in jail! She should at least have to pay a large fine!! Radio stations everywhere should treat her just like they treated The Dixie Chicks after Natalie Maines made her comment about Bush!! What Madonna said was way worse!!
I think she’ll learn to live with the disappointment. Besides, kids don’t listen to her anyway. She’s from my era, and even an old-timer like me has iTunes and satellite radio.
According to the Gateway Pundit, the Secret Service is aware of her comments and is considering an investigation. A number of people have called for her arrest, and a White House petition demands that she be charged with a felony.
The singer later claimed that she disavows violence and said her comments were taken out of context.
