It's a private company and they can call it what they wish. The public dollar will determine if this was a good change.

Actually, Dolly never "sells out." She is open-minded and fairly liberal in her politics, regardless of her East TN Hillbilly stage persona.

She has supported LGBT rights, promotes educational programs for poor kids, has been at the forefront of women's rights (remember Nine to Five?), and most recently stood with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin when they rightly referred to Trump as a "sexist, lying, bigot"

Yay Dolly!!

Dolly stated that Dollywood does not have an LGBT day, but did say the park was open to everyone. Years ago Jane Fonda was coming to Sevier County to visit Dolly Parton and Dolly uninvited her visit to Sevier County. Dolly did not say a word about Trump while Lilly Tomlin and Jane Fonda made their unscripted hate speech.

Dolly is friendly to everyone but neutral on most all political issues.

Actually, Dolly has been quite outspoken in her support of the LGBT community and gay marriage. She has repeatedly referred to both Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin (who is gay) as "good friends," so don't know what the "uninvited" thing is.

As to politics, she does keep a low profile, wisely knowing that speaking her mind (liberal) would put some her redneck fans into a tizzy fit.

It‘s my very humble opinion that people like Fonda did not begin a campaign against crude or insensitive people. Even a fly needs a fresh turd to light on.

True.

I mean, just today, Trump referred to people living in Africa and Haiti as living in (I quote) "sh*thole countries."

Good old Trump. Always so classy.

Is there video of that? Doubtful. Then it's one of those anonymous sources aka a CNN source reports. Bur since you bring up Haiti what happened to the BILLIONS donated to that country?
The Clintons and their Democrat pals squirreled it away for God knows what.

Being a friend to "Hanoi Jane" doesn't sit too well with our Veterans who served in Vietnam and the families who had members who paid the ultimate price at the hands of the enemy Fonda collaborated with.

Both Republicans and Dems confirmed that Dump said this at a bipartisan meeting yesterday. Further, the White House does not deny it.

Face it, Dump is a disgusting, classless pig.

Actually, Dolly has been quite outspoken in her support of the LGBT community and gay marriage.

FACT: A few years ago the homosexual community announced a date for Dollywood’s Gay Pride Day. Dolly made a public announcement that Dollywood does not have a Gay Pride Day.

She has repeatedly referred to both Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin (who is gay) as "good friends," so don't know what the "uninvited" thing is.

ANSWER: In April 1992, the local news announced that Jane Fonda would attend the opening of a new section of Dollywood. Veterans protested, Dolly apologized to the community, and Jane Fonda didn't attend.

As to politics, she does keep a low profile, wisely knowing that speaking her mind (liberal) would put some her redneck fans into a tizzy fit.

ANSWER: Dolly’s career involves working with homosexuals, sexual predators, and other undesirables that work in the entertainment business. As I previously stated, Dolly keeps a neutral position when she speaks. Neither Jane Fonda or Lily Tomlin have ever entertained at Dollywood. Dolly’s song Nine to Five was a hit. When the movie made, Dolly did not select the actors in the movie. Most of Dolly’s movies are family movies and none of her songs support homosexuals.

Dolly is a class axt and her actions speak louder than your words.

Africa is a sh*thole?

So you're saying that the land that is the basis of the Old Testament, home of Moses, Job, and so on is a sh*thole?

Interesting. I thought you right-wingers were so pompously religious and Bible-thumping.

So you agree that Biblical countries are sh*tholes? I guess that's the truth that hurts you?

How very odd.
