so it's a disgrace because someone's opinion is opposite to yours? you made the point yourself: they are free to do this. so be it. it is a violent song, we are a violent country. if you could separate yourself from a patriotic mindset and look at the topic without bias you could see someone else's opinion.
Let's ban a song, based on it's "Violent Content" because we need to have a less vilent song played before a sporting event?
So....is this event a Full Contact sport?
If so, this reeks of childish ignorance.
They are free to be ignorant, and people are free to decide whether they get to have their money. Tax dollars included.
I agree that this is no different than a child acting foolish to get attention.
Sometimes they get the wrong kind of attention.
IMHO, people this ignorant cannot properly educate my child nor manage my money properly.
Just my Opinion.

Patriotism is a disease that foments irrational distrust for your fellow man... the 3rd Reich saw the whole master race thing fail.. welcome to the new and improved 4th Reich fuhrer mantra: You are part of a "master nation"..
Because we are superior nation of people, by virtue of zip codes, fake lines drawn on maps and the supercilious fantasy we are blessed by an invisible man.. we can tell other nations how to behave, dictate how they defend themselves, and lecture them ad nauseum about how when they do it it's the worst thing ever.. when we do it, it's righteous & just.
My kids dont pledge allegiance to anyone but family & loved ones.., they don't regurgitate stale state propaganda and they know the flag is colored cloth on a stick.
The Mennonites are a group of Christian Anabaptist denominations named after the Frisian Menno Simons (1496-1561), who, through his writings, articulated and thereby formalized the teachings of earlier Swiss founders. The teachings of the Mennonites were founded on their belief in both the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ, which they held to with great conviction despite persecution by the various Roman Catholic and Protestant states

With a position like that I'm surprised they just didnt ban sports outright. Surely a competitive hands-on struggle for a ball is more violent than a song about a flag.
