These people who are "offended" by everything must live pretty weak, insecure lives.

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.



you don't really understand history do you?

ANECDOTAL EVIDENCE AHEAD, I can post pics from the game but not of said incident

I was lucky enough to visit NYC for my 40th birthday, I always wanted to goto a baseball game, the Yankees were away from home so I watched the Mets play, I as a fan of the sport knew of the 7th innings stretch and said to my 2 friends we will go for refreshments during that period, it was a gloriously sunny day and when that time came we stood up and began to move towards the kiosks, but not before every American in our vicinity berated us for not following protocol of the anthem.

I apologised to the people nearest to me and stated in my northern English accent I was not American, I meant no disrespect and then continued towards the kiosks, I did find it rather intense how much the anthem meant to you guys still.

We have way more than you do, pal. America No. 1! Yay!!

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.



That is never how I felt about the anthem and I don’t know anyone else who felt that way for most of my 63 years. To me, and I think the vast majority of Americans, it was a unifying moment of reverence for our beloved nation, which has enabled hundreds of millions to live in freedom and a high standard of living. Singing the anthem never meant we thought America is perfect, or that we hungered for war. The same goes for the Pledge of Allegiance and the flag. The Left has assigned all kinds of warped meanings to these long-established national traditions and icons. I mean seriously, who ever sings or even knows the second verse of the national anthem, let alone the third?

What's even worse is that most of these people are hypocrites who are conservatives and always point the finger when minorities mention FACTS about discrimination, racism and hatred being spread around, but then the second something offends them, they make a HUGE spectacle of it (ie anthem protests of police brutality, atheists speaking their mind on violations of church & state, etc). It's funny because conservatives are always the first to be offended at something that goes against their religion or die hard blind patriotism/nationalism, but pretend that liberals are snowflakes.

LOL, sounds like you are the one that doesn't grasp history. You probably think southern democrats from the 1800s were liberal.

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 !


:-) Good one.

Then make your argument instead of regurgitating rhetoric.

OK. In the OP I linked to the Fox news article. You seem to think that disagreeing with the source is good enough to win the debate, sadly, it's not.



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.

www.nytimes.com...

This is what the article was about, and it's my belief that being Patriotic, understanding the significance of the Anthem, isn't something tied to a political party. When that happens, we can be sure that Socialism is here and Communism is following close behind.

You then somehow made the connection to the civil war, which was brought on because the Southern States wanted to make some of their own rules and not have to follow what the North demanded. (States Rights) Slavery was a part of it, but not the only reason for it, as you eluded to.

Have a nice day.

Slavery was the biggest part of it and that doesn't refute anything I said.

Ring wing extremists are pure comedy. Keep finding things to be selectively outraged about and then demonstrate your hypocrisy some more.

None of you left or right, believe the media (always) tells the truth. You agree that the media is a business first and an ideal, second (if at all, really). Yet, somehow, when whatever media apparatus you are literally programmed to mostly agree with tells you "everyone on the other side is bad," -- you believe it. In your hearts.

This was exposed as a deliberate non-story designed to promote packaged "feels" two pages ago, and yet, somehow, the thread continues. Like there is a philosophical realm where the original story had any validity at all and we need to build some kind of chariot to fly there.

And yet, all of you, including me -- would make fun of a vegan seriously arguing for all domestic dogs and cats to eat vegan from now on. That (and this) is exactly the kind of space-cadet nonsense this place didn't tolerate much ten years ago. Nevermind the (fun) stuff it did.

Don't let people you don't trust or believe in tell you to break the bonds of sacred brotherhood with your neighbors so easily. It's a really bad look for us.
