Have any of you actually listened to the Anthem, Critically? It's mind control bullsh*t. Justifying fake wars so we can be free.. What a crok. Every country has their own "tow the line and think this way" brainwashing song. Now I am not offended by it, but I see it for the BS that it is.


When people are done singing it, they act all happy afterwards like they are free. LOL


Gonna go out on a limb and guess you know exactly squat about the origins of the song and have only "listened to it critically". Because if you did, you would know just how wrong you actually are.

This...

The article in question doesnt even put down the company for playing it, even says they've never received complaints. It discusses that there has been some controversy surrounding it, but doesnt "poo poo" the station as Fox says. I used to think Fox was a master at this, but there are some newer sources that I see floating around here that blow Fox out of the water at drumming up anger, and it works...Every...Single...Time.

Hmm.. another post made about something that occurs almost never, with the intent most likely to start another pile-on to the "left' as dangerous terrorists. And it does just that. Yawn.. another regular day on ATS.

How come the NFL no longer airs the Anthem on TV?


The NFL has nothing to do with which networks decide to play or not play the Anthem before a game. And usually they never do - I have almost never seen the anthem before a game, in a long time.. mostly just before a playoff game - which most networks will still do.

Has absolutely nothing to do with leftists fulfilling some nebulous agenda of course anyway - you can thank Trump for the lack of the Anthem. He created controversy where there was little to begin with. But that's what he's good at, I guess.

The New York Times poo-pooed the long-standing tradition of television stations airing the “The Star-Spangled Banner” because some night owl viewers could be offended by the “politically charged” national anthem.


It doesn't happen often, but in this instance, I am gobsmacked, and have no idea what to say. Maybe someone else can make sense of this.


It's no surprise the New York Times would come up with such tripe. Any sensible person has long given up on that pathological shill station.

Would it be surprising if those triggered "Americans" haven't been here for a long time or are not of the Euro persuasion? :-)

If you are regular Fox news follower it does happen often.

They sell you "gobsmack" and outrage.

It's up to you if you buy it.

The original article they are asking you to be outraged about is fluff popcorn and concludes there is really nothing controversial about bringing back the National Anthem TV sign-off.

You should stop feeding Fox News "Get Mad" click bait.



Still, the decision to revive the anthem tradition comes at a time when overt allegiance to “The Star-Spangled Banner” has become one of the lines that separate blue and red America.

Not sure why a national anthem is needed before a sports game anyway.

It's fox news. Nuff said, you follow fake news. Why are conservatives triggered about people's opinions of the national anthem or get so butt hurt when people kneel for it when it's a constitutional right? It's just a goddamn song and played at every single sports event when it's not even necessary, just "tradition." Conservatives are so dumb, they literally think that "tradition" is a good reason to keep something going. That's why they started a civil war over keeping their slaves and would start another over strict regulations on their killing machines. It's idiotic positions like this that are leading to our constitution dying. Conservatives LOVE to play the victim. It's a constant theme.

Fifty years ago one of the worlds most famous music festivals took place in New York State.
The festival was a collection of anti establishment performers and fans from all over the country.

At the end of that festival a young black man by the name of Jimi hendrix played a song on his guitar.

That song was the star spangled banner..

The moral or the story is stop getting upset with a song that represents a hell of a lot more good than it does bad.


You do realise Hendrix played it all distorted and mangled to represent machine gun fire and bombs going off? A parody of the original.
Many at that festival protested the Vietnam war, started by a false flag know as the gulf of Tonkin.

It seems like there is a disease spreading from Europe - the notion that anything patriotic and "national" is a shameful thing that can only lead to wars and misery (since all of Europe seems to be sharing some eternal need to make up for WWII - it's over 70 years ago, give it a rest). Countries = bad. Free flow of everything = peace and love.

So of course the National Anthem is pure, 100% provocation - can't have that!

I couldn't help myself - I just had to make a verse which I feel describes a future possible leftist America. (Not sure if the "United" and "States" part will still be a thing - borders are evil and all that.)

Hail to thee, AOC, wise goddess of light
Red banners they wave, rabid lesbians screaming
That we proudly must hate everything male and white
No borders, no wall, for a #hole we're dreaming
And the communist glare, suicide bombers everywhere
Gave proof that the new world order was here
Oh, say does the Hammer and Sickle yet wave
O'er the land of the unfree and the home of the knaves?

I do think the original better describes what USA is and should be.
Let's hope it stays that way.

Aye, on some level I'd have to agree with TheGreatWork. Whilst maybe not brain washing, it's certainly not what I would call a proper song like the British National Anthem. It lacks a certain pageantry somehow and is quite an amateurish attempt to conjour up something tuneful. I suggest changing its key back to the original C opposed to its current Bb and changing the line ' star spangled banner yet wave' to 'star spangled banner yet roar'.

Oh say can you see by the lbgt bar lights .Proudly we prevailed with the USA’s reaming . Who’s kids are selling dope on a dark night and scheming. Over the prison wall we watch as the light is fleeing . The pockets bleed bare single moms in despair . Gave goofs proof through the night that their rainbow flag was still their . Oh say does that limp wrist still wave , over the west coast land of poop streets and pee . On my Obama phone screen through crack smoke dimly seen . Where Pelosi the living ghost gives her haughty repose . What is that poop smell over the towering San Fran street . As Rachel Maddow blows lies in men’s cloths . Now they catch a buzz on the mornings first meth beam . Over the land of the lost and the home of illegal immigrat’s with healthcare that is free !

I believe the Star Spangled Banner may trigger some people, but I seriously hesitate to call them Americans.

If the US Anthem bothers someone...they're not truly American. They are interlopers that are standing on our soil. They need to get away from America as far as possible and go to a country that they think is better. We will forgive them when they realize their mistake and come begging us to let them back in..if they can behave and stop being a brainwashed idiot.

America is far from perfect, but most of the problem is because we have Democrats, their brainwashed supporters and the typical politician who loves money more than our country, who are working in our Government trying their best to destroy America from the inside out and trying to turn us into a Communist or Socialist country and are being paid off by foreign interests that want to weaken America so as to take over. Were it not for them, America would be so much better and most problems would not be prevalent.

There have been several Feminists and other Socialism types that have gone to other countries like the Middle East for instance, to prove us wrong... but they're dead now, at the hands of those who they went to prove were nice people, coming from nice countries. They were wrong, and they won't be coming back. If they were still alive, I bet they would have tried. In fact, there were a couple of Feminists that tried to come back after going to the Middle East to prove us wrong about our warnings that Islam was dangerous for ALL Americans, but when you join or marry into Islam as they did, the penalty for leaving is death and that's exactly what they got. Every single one of them got beheaded. America is the worst country in the world to some....until they actually live in those countries that they think is better.

You know who isn't truly "American?"

Anyone who would let media mouthpieces on either side of the political fistfight poison their sense of unity and brotherhood with their countrymen over a non-story with no actual sources claiming anyone has complained about the National Anthem.

But that gets us straight into the biggest conspiracy ATS will never seriously examine because people get their jollies from hating each other based on "news" (lol) "stories" (yes) they didn't actually read or catastrophically lack the comprehension skills required to see (thru) and understand.

Why ANY of you would let Sinclair, or CNN or Fox or MSNBC tell you which Americans you should hate this week is the million-dollar question, IMO.

Don't they sleep through it anyway ?





“The decision to revive the anthem tradition comes at a time when overt allegiance to ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ has become one of the lines that separate blue and red America,” the Times reporter wrote.


Freggin political hacks.

I find Blue America staging a coup d'etat because they lost the last election more offensive than a national symbol.
