Here we go, as predicted they will now come after the National Anthem. Any bets if the POS sports teams cave on this one? They want to replace the Star Spangled Banner with John Lennon's Imagine. Really?

Makes you wonder why the hold Islam in such esteem since their prophet supported taking slaves, owned slaves, made others slaves, and gave guidelines on how to treat their slaves.

There is growing outrage over calls by activists, historians and journalists to replace The Star Spangled Banner as the national anthem because it was written by slave owner Francis Scott Key, and potentially replace it with John Lennon's Imagine.

They say that because the song was written by Francis Scott Key, a white slave owner who made overtly racist remarks, it is no longer appropriate that lyrics he wrote should still be the national anthem given the ongoing cultural reckoning and recognizing of systemic racism in America.

A much better replacement anthem would be chop suey by system of a down.

Anyhow I'm numb to all these clowns wanting to erase history, I will simply continue to ignore them.

Heh, I've been saying since the day I heard it Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA" should be the National Anthem. I get goosebumps still every time I hear it. Star Spangled Banner does nada

Maybe they can move to a country with an anthem more pleasing to them?

They will be coming for Mount Rushmore sooner than later.

How can we collectively tell them to get the # out of this country if they hate it so much?

I remember back in the 80s on MTv, when they actually played music and had literally retarded veejays like Jesse Camp they would play commercials saying stuff like "those who fail to remember the past are condemned to repeat it." The same outfit 30 some years later has done a 180. These journalists and publications used to stand for something real but the script was flipped. They want to erase history and I cannot understand why.

They should just re-write it, give it an update or something:

Oh say can you see, how we used to have slaves
how we used to be racist and totally depraved

oh say can you see, through the tear gas to'nigh
all the fireworks you hear
are just conditioning you to die

oh say can you pay, for your very own slice
in a trashcan sized tiny house
and a Glock for a wife

oh say can you tweet
something brutal my way
with your 5g soaked brains
that you'll loose if you sneeze

from the problems in Minnesota
to the meth labs in Tennessee
a bunch of facking morons
from sea to shining sea

and if you have money or oil
we'll be coming to your country
cause I'm proud to destroy the world for merica
wait, I gotta go pee

just peed next to a dumpster
oh look, some half eaten cheese
just glad I'm trapped in merica
where there's no such thing as free

let's get out the old globe now
and spin it all around
sign up kid and climb into the plane
there's some people you need to gun down

and if you have a coupon
well you can use it to wipe your ass
cause I'm all out of tp
just dousing everything with gas

It's what you do when you want to destroy a nation.

It's been in the playbook a long time.

Didn't journalists use to just bring us the facts and ask the hard questions?
I think that was their job description at one point right?
Now they are activists and just out to stir the pot and get people riled up and try to drive the wedge deeper.
And they don't realize that sooner or later they will all say something that will cause people who listen to them now to turn on them , and then who will listen to them?

Can't we just be honest and say that all national anthems suck? They are so awkward and boring.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled today that President Trump can deport people who are troublemakers.

Send them all to a CHAZCHOP-suitable island, surrounded by sharks.

I vote for replacing it with LMFAO's Sexy And I Know It.

It would make enough (edit: skinny jeans Kevins & Karens) tender feelz heads explode that it'd be more than worth it.

We should just start over, as they are suggesting.

We could elect Biden, blow the country up and let it collapse and reform under his VP as "LibTardMerica".

Then once THAT collapses. we could rebuild, call the place "America", go back to what we were doing without the Democratic/Progressive Party and perhaps use the Constitution as a guide.

I am all for this.

Biden 2020!!!
