Ray Stevens: Dear America...A Viral Video Sensation...

Hello one and all!! Hopefully those of you that call yourselves fans of Ray Stevens have taken a moment to either purchase the Mp3 of "Dear America" or have visited YouTube and watched the music video. Posted onto YouTube just 2 days ago it's already generated 103,932 unique views. That number is bound to rise as the days go by. The Boot, Country Rebel, and Wide Open Country have shared the video...helping it reach outside the Ray Stevens fan-base. In so doing the video's also attracted, believe it or not, vicious contempt and anger from those not too happy about America's ideals and it's role in the world, in general, and they apparently are appalled at pro-America sentiment and reflections of 9/11. Such hostility is bad enough but some go even farther by injecting racism into the equation. You can read the vile commentary in the comments section of those sites I made mention of.

If you visit any or all of those sites be sure to search for Ray Stevens, of course. "Dear America" should be the top search result. I'm not reprinting the vile comments here...but they're available for all to see at those sites or you can stop by Ray's Facebook page. The comments made at a couple of those sites are automatically copied to Ray's main Facebook page. It's a shame and a disgrace that there are people out there in this country that hate it so much but, of course, they're reaping the benefits and the freedoms our country provides. Those people that do not like this song are a bunch of bitter, cynical, ungrateful, "woe is me" losers. For those that love the song and it's message...here it is once more...
