[pullquote quote=”I felt to give into this political correctness would be to turn my back on the people who lost their lives on 9-11 and on the brave men and women who defend this country. The title of the song is ‘This Ain’t No Rag It’s A Flag,’ and I don’t apologize for a word in it. I’ll let you all decide for yourselves.” credit=”Charlie Daniels”]According to TruthorFiction.com and verified on snopes.com Charlie Daniels was scheduled to appear on the CMT Country Freedom Concert, a benefit for victims of the terrorist attacks on September 11. The organizers of the program, however, told Charlie that he could not perform one of his songs because they felt the lyrics might offend someone. Charlie decided to pull out of the show and released a public letter both explaining his reasons and showing the lyrics to the song titled “This Ain’t No Rag, It’s a Flag.” Read the letter here.
