It's "not a matter of politics, it's a matter of patriotism." 

Madonna has always been one of our favorite bad girls, but now she's being punished. After the singer's controversial "fuck you" speech at Saturday's Women's March in D.C., Texarkana's Classic Hits station, HITS 105, has decided to indefinitely ban all Madonna songs from its airwaves.

In a statement released yesterday, HITS 105 said "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."

With a strong background in fighting politics through pop music, Madonna's no stranger to censorship. We're pretty confident she'll survive the loss of listeners from a station with a whopping 750 Facebook likes, 200 Twitter followers--not to mention Texarkana has a population of approximately 36,000.

And while Madonna dropped a few f-bombs during her speech to no one's surprise, she ended with the powerful statement: "I choose love. Are you with me? Say this with me: 'We choose love. We choose love. We choose love.'" We're with you, Madge.
