They Just Banned the American National Anthem

By

Every day we slip deeper into an abyss of liberal activism that’s going to ultimately destroy America.

Unless we do something to stop this madness.

The latest shocking example of what’s going on took place in California (of course), where student leaders at a San Francisco area high school BANNED the US National Anthem.

The Associated Student Body at California High School in San Ramon called the anthem “outdated and racially offensive.”

The students were angry because the third verse of the anthem makes mention of slaves, which, like it or not, is a part of our nation’s history.

Somehow, these student leaders interpreted the verse in question to encourage the “killing of African-Americans,” though it does nothing of the sort.

What’s more, that particular verse isn’t even included when the anthem is performed.

No matter – the student leaders succeeded in getting the anthem banned from public events at the school.

But, some students are fighting back.

From World Net Daily:

But Amir Udler, a senior at the school, isn’t having it. Udler told the California, which was first to report the story, that the decision is disregarding the sentiments of most of the students at the school.

“It comes from a very disrespectful place,” he said. “[The decision] is disenfranchising the majority of the school who loves the country.”

Fox News opinion columnist Todd Starnes urges his listeners to contact the school board. He asked, “Where are the grown-ups in charge of this school?”

“The Star Spangled Banner may have survivied the bombs bursting in air, but it may not be able to withstand the rampaging mob of politically incorrect inclusivists,” Starnes wrote.

Dennis Florentinos, a senior at the school, said on Starnes’ radio show that there’s been “a lot of pushback on the removal of the anthem – and not just from conservatives.”

He told ABC-7: “The importance of singing the national anthem to honor and respect those that have died and sacrificed their lives to protect the freedoms that us Americans take for granted every day is much more important than the ‘unifying’ issue.”
