When does the effort for “political correctness” finally cross America’s “Red Line?” Perhaps when it begins to permeate the sanctity of the national past time.
As you probably realize, we do allot of reading and scanning of stories from many different media outlets. In our ongoing quest to find relevant and entertaining information to provide to our site and Facebook fans we sometime come across a stories that grinds our gears.
This morning, we followed a story link that cascaded into several others relating to the discussion of the National Anthem. Frankly, it was a jaw dropping moment. It seems there is a small yet highly vocal group of miscreants who think that the National Anthem is either “stupid, too militaristic, or “embarrassing.”
Case in point – Current TV’s Bill Press who unloaded the following pile of horseshit from his pie hole:
he is on a crusade to “get rid” of the national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” mostly because it is “un-singable.” But he also admitted that he knew he would be criticized for espousing this view.
“This is a pet-peeve of mine — no, it is more serious than that,” he said. “It’s more than a pet-peeve. It is a major crusade of mine, a major cause of mine and that is, to get rid of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner.’ Now I know you’re going to say I am not a true American, I’m not patriotic. I don’t think patriotism has anything to do with it. The national anthem is just absolutely monumentally un-singable. I mean — there’s so much wrong with it. I don’t know where to start.”
In the interest of brevity, we will limit our example to the dickhead mentioned above. You can easily Google the subject and find page after page of this nonsense. So our response to Mr. Dickhead and his ilk is simple…screw off! The National Anthem is GREAT – Baseball is GREAT, and the people who have come here from all over the world make this country GREAT.
