It’s Powell’s feeling that if the patriotic soundtrack that became the national anthem in 1931 offends any part of society today, “It’s time to just throw it away.”
If you haven’t figured things out by now, the ‘fight to end racial injustice’ on the radical Left is actually a fight to destroy the United States of America. The keen-eyed observer will notice that along with Confederate statues being torn down, statues of legitimate American heros like Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant and Teddy Roosevelt are also being targeted. What does that tell you the real target is? That’s right, it’s America that they hate.
But oh-how-selective their manufactured rage really is. The Democratic Party is the party of slavery, it is the party that created the Ku Klux Klan, but those factoids go undiscussed by the Liberal-controlled media. Under the false pretense of fighting racism, the Marxists that run Black Lives Matter are calling for “black liberation and black sovereignty, by any means necessary“. What does that sound like to you? If you guessed “civil war”, congratulations, you took the red pill. If you had any other answer, you’ve been blue-pilled, please go back to sleep. It will all be over soon, and you’ll wake up in chains.STARTED BY DEMOCRATS 150 YEARS AGO, THE KU KLUX KLAN DREAMS OF A COMEBACK AFTER SEEING HOW FELLOW TERROR GROUP ANTIFA IS PROMOTED BY THE MEDIA
FROM NY DAILY NEWS: With racially insensitive statues being torn down nationwide, a music writer struck a chord Thursday by wondering if “The Star Spangled Banner” should represent the U.S. considering the politics of its author, Francis Scott Key. The conversation is sparking debate from sea to shining sea.
Citing a report form from the ACLU calling Key “an avowed white supremacist,” Yahoo! music writer Lyndsey Parker poised the inflammatory question in an article that notes a statue of the famed songwriter was toppled during a protest in San Francisco last week.
That report states Keys was raised by a slave-owning family in Maryland who allegedly characterized African-Americans as an “evil that afflicts a community.” Yahoo! posed its question to historian and authors including Kevin Powell who said Keys was a close friend to President Andrew Jackson, whom Powell called the Donald Trump of his era.
The story states “The Star-Spangled Banner” was inspired by a poem written by Key that included the line “No refuge could save the hireling and slave/From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave/And The Star-Spangled Banner in triumph doth wave/O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
IT’S POWELL’S FEELING THAT IF THE PATRIOTIC SOUNDTRACK THAT BECAME THE NATIONAL ANTHEM IN 1931 OFFENDS ANY PART OF SOCIETY TODAY, “IT’S TIME TO JUST THROW IT AWAY.” POWELL WASN’T THE ONLY ACTIVIST IN THE YAHOO! STORY WHO FELT THAT WAY.
Historian Daniel E. Walker said it was time to rethink the tune played before sporting events where athletes frequently kneel in protest to civil rights violations and leans toward doing away with it.
“WHAT STARTED AS A LEGITIMATE CONVERSATION ABOUT INEQUITIES IN OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM HAS NOW MORPHED INTO ‘LET’S JUST CHANGE THE ENTIRE COUNTRY AND CHANGE THE ENTIRE CULTURE,’” GOWDY SAID, ARGUING “CANCEL CULTURE” MAY BE GOING TOO FAR.
Liana Morales of West Harlem’s Urban Assembly School for the Performing Arts made news last week when she reportedly declined to sing the anthem at her school’s virtual graduation. Instead, she want with “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which was first performed in 1900 to posthumously celebrate Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, according to PBS. The song is informally regarded by many as “the Black National Anthem.” READ MORE
