“Racist” National Anthem Banned From California High School Events

57

Is the national anthem too racist for school events?

That’s the prevailing wisdom at California High School in San Ramon where student leadership officials have decided to ban the “Star Spangled Banner” from sports rallies thanks to a “problematic” third verse that has never once been sung at any public event in the history of the United States. Taking their cues from the profiteers over at the NAACP, the school determined that the national anthem is “racist and anti-black,” according to the school’s newspaper, The Californian.

That verse – the one unknown to 99% of Americans  – recites the phrase: “No refuge could save the hireling and slave…”

Gee, how about we just don’t sing that part? Oh, right, we already decided to leave it out…decades ago.

“It was brought to our attention that the national anthem’s third verse is outdated and racially offensive,” wrote the Associated Student Body president in an open letter. “We had nothing but good intentions by removing the song so that we could be fully inclusive to our student body.”

Right, you don’t want to offend all the hirelings and slaves in attendance.

“This verse translated, finds joy in the killing of African-Americans,” he wrote. “To think that our nation’s anthem once had the word slave and ‘land of the free’ in the same sentence leaves me speechless.”

Untrue, sadly.

“Moving forward,” he continued, “we must take action and be inclusive to all. This song was written in 1814. That was 204 years ago. Imagine all the traditions and laws that have changed. As our culture shifts to one that is more diverse and accepting of all types of people, so must our traditions. And although we understand that this anthem represents pride and patriotism in our country to many people, we believe that there are other ways that this can be accomplished without an expense to inclusivity on our campus.”

Oh, we strongly doubt it. Already we’ve learned that our new, “diverse” nation cannot tolerate: The national anthem, memorials to the Founding Fathers, memorials to Confederate soldiers, the American flag, Christopher Columbus, the Constitution (as written), and the President of the United States. And we’re sure if there are any patriotic demonstrations as yet untouched by the liberal agenda, they won’t be left alone for long. Hell, most of the ignorant left in this country believes that any display of patriotism is offensive to illegal immigrants (sorry, undocumented citizens) and residents of other, less fortunate countries. The only proper way to acknowledge your citizenship is with shame, especially if you have the misfortune of being white.

So no, don’t even bother replacing the national anthem with some other form of “pride and patriotism,” because we’re sure that one will be deemed “problematic” as well. Let’s all just stew in our guilt and regret until we implode in one magnificent burst of self-loathing. Should be great fun.

    Pull your kids out of these communist indoctrination centers….

    1. gotabgood says

      Leave it to the Russian agent to ALWAYS bring up communism..

      1. MAHB001 says

        Ya, That makes a lot of sense doesn’t it?

      2. Retired says

        You have to admit that there is more indoctrination in our education system than a quality education . Parents are sending their kids to Church schools over public even though it is not their religion the grew up with .

        1. gotabgood says

          Not saying this is the case in all cases… but sometimes when both sides of an issue is taught, some consider that as indoctrination… I call that wisdom to make up your own mind. You can’t choose, when all you know is one side. I sent my kids to a Christian school.. at the time I thought I was sparing them from the worlds view of things… what happens when they graduate and have to go out into this strange world. You remember the look on the babies face when they got the first taste of ice cream, cake or pie? Their eyes got real big and wanted more. I feel that would be the way of a Christian graduate going out into the world of song, wine and dance.

          1. Retired says

            Out of our three Cristian High schools there are more professionals than our 3 public high schools . The Christian schools also take in minority students that turn out to be professionals and not go back to the hood .

          2. gotabgood says

            “Not saying this is the case in all cases.”

    Lets ban their federal funding….

    1. mrpoohead says

      And stop receiving tax revenue – the biggest in the country. Very intelligent – economics major obviously!

      1. Retired says

        You have no clue how much people pay per student cost and most of the money goes to Staffing with their benefit package !!!

        1. mrpoohead says

          I’m not sure in what sense that is related to the topic.
          Old age or just dumb? Probably both!

          1. Retired says

            You don’t like facts about the high cost of education and that most goes to staffing and not the students .

          2. mrpoohead says

            Staffing is more expensive in many other countries and Europe land costs overall will be higher – less space.
            Your comment is redundant as are you.

          3. Retired says

            Man are you loony tonight worse than other nights, what the hell does staffing have to do with Land ????

          4. mrpoohead says

            Their staff (teachers) costs are higher, their land costs are higher – that’s buildings and such like. Are they going to teach everyone at the beach? Duh!

          5. Retired says

            See you loony bird keep bringing other thins up . Staff is not buildings . Plus in Europe they do not destroy old buildings ,they maintain them .

          6. mrpoohead says

            You brought up the cost of education and I pointed out that it is higher elsewhere. Suck it up!
            And you are wrong – some are replaced and some added too. Population growth. Duh!

          7. Retired says

            I brought out the high cost of staffing and yo come up with the other crap .

          8. mrpoohead says

            Not high, higher elsewhere as are other costs. What is your point? You don’t have one. There’s a surprise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          9. Jeffrey Cahoon says

            Why don’t you two IDIOTS email each other instead of clogging up this article with your useless argument! How ole you, 10 or 12?

    2. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

      Fantastic idea!

  3. Justin Seine says

    I think it is time to pull the ejection handle on California. Hopefully it will come down over North Korea or China!

    1. Jeffrey Cahoon says

      We are not ALL that way! I hate the CA government, I will try to change it when I vote next election! But in assuming that We the People of CA are all like this IDIOT, kind of makes you an IDIOT also!

  4. gotabgood says

    Some may say this is off topic…. I say our kids lives are always on topic..

    TAKE OUR GUNS AWAY, ONLY CRIMINALS WILL HAVE GUNS!
    I say take guns away from the innocent and ALL mass shootings will stop!!

      Did you miss the part he was kicked out of there . It is sad these events happen , but blame Congress and the Insurance Industry for not doing more for mental health . Just most juvenile facilities have been destroyed by his type and the Gov. has closed them up and now roam our streets .I remember the day when Our mentally ill Vets were put out into the streets from our nearby VA hospitals. They were given room and meals with no medical staff .

      1. gotabgood says

        The lie that NRA and InfoWars spread about the left wanting to take your guns away is just that..A LIE…. MOST American be they Atheist, Christians, Conservatives or Democrats like guns.. But something needs to be done…

        https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8fbadb0acf5f43c98f3436de679c72e7861fd714559a34008520d7d92acf5bf5.jpg

        1. Retired says

          What the hell does the NRA have to do with NOT treating the mentally ill ,the same problem is with Booze and drug abuse ?????

          1. gotabgood says

            Why the hell don’t you READ!!
            You idiots on the right have spread lies about Obama coming to get your guns for 8 years….. NRA and InfoWars LIED!!!
            That is where your crap came from about only criminals would have guns….. The minute gun control is mentioned… up comes the lies….
            Most can’t see there is need for something different to be done…. maybe if kids were being killed of the people in charge….. there might be a different outlook..
            Sooner or later… the odds are in favor of it happening….. someone on here is going to lose a child…. then lets here what they have to say…

          2. Retired says

            Like a good troll you change the subject of where the real problem lies . lack of respect for the laws and not the NRA . these people doing the shooting are deranged just like your thinking .

          3. gotabgood says

            Are you going to tell me that when Obama said we need GUN CONTROL and 85% of American people agree with that….. that the NRA doesn’t come out with their BS about coming to get your guns!?!
            A mental exam is all part of gun control.

          4. Retired says

            I am not interested in your hate for the NRA and that you support the Illegal use of guns .You are as deranged as the shooter .

          5. gotabgood says

            And you are as stupid as your whole KLAN!!!!!!!!!!!
            I am fed up with the rights bullshit about their 2 amendment rights protecting their precious guns… WHILE KIDS AT SCHOOLS, CHURCHES AND MOVIE HOUSES ARE KILLED… If you don’t understand the difference ……

          6. Retired says

            Why should I accept your line of poop when you do not want to understand the real problem . everyone was using the gun Illegally and should be fried for it if they are still a live , but you would fight for them to be released from prison with your friends at the ACLU !!!!

          7. gotabgood says

            No no…. the only ones in prison that don’t belong there are pot users/dealers… notice I said pot… not the hard stuff… There are states making it legal, ya know?
            The real problem is anyone with a credit card or cash can buy a gun. I bought a 9MM in Phoenix, all I needed was a drivers license and the money. No waiting period… nothing.. walked in with the money, walked out with a 9MM, with ammo.
            This is one of the areas I have trouble with the Democrats on, execution. I think serial killers, or cannibals or rapist, should be executed. I do not believe in abortion, but I believe in the rights for each individual to make their own choice.

          8. Retired says

            Well you should go to the nearest police station and turn in your 9mm plus you did not say how long ago you bought it . most states do not let you buy a gun unless you are a resident and some even follow that for AMO buying . Some people do get Squirrely on pot , it all depends on the plant and where it came from .

          9. gotabgood says

            I bought the gun legally, no need to go to the police station for anything.

            I bought it in 2010 and Arizona is still a wild west town in the minds of many.

          10. Retired says

            But guns are bad so you should turn yours in !!! You did not say if you was a resident at the time ????

          11. gotabgood says

            Truth be known… I do not have it any longer.. When I moved to China, I had to get rid of all my firearms.
            Like I said, all that was required was a AZ drivers license, I ask the salesperson, but I was a resident also.
            But guns are bad….. the only thing they were created for was to kill… no other reason for their existence. And the pistol was designed to kill humans….I know all about target shooting and all the other side affects of having a gun. I am talking design…

          12. Retired says

            I used my pistol for hunting , I am a member of PETA , People Eating Tasty Animals .

    The national anthem racist? It’s just part of the effort of the anti-America globalist left to deny America’s heritage.

    Can you visualize the parenting and education these snowflakes are receiving?

  7. MILES E DRAKE says

    Removal and replacement of the national anthem and the flag have been at the core of the cultural marxist agenda ever since the first wave of leninist revolution hit this country a century ago. It is now clear that the left wants some kind of collectivist hymn like the one the Norks chant to the delighted approval of American decadents, and we are headed full tilt toward saluting the rainbow banner, perhaps with a little black and something Mexican sewn on, on pain of forcible re-education as deplorables. Californication is too far gone to save, and we have to let them go and have their own Aztlan flag and Himno Nacional, at least until they achieve Anschluss with the motherland to the south. As for the rest of the country, dropping the anthem should be a sure sign of treason, and changing the flag should be as lethal to the left as an attempt at gun confiscation.

  8. Jerry Hughes says

    Just post the names and addresses pf the punks responsible for this then, forget about it.

    The agenda of the coalition of Liberals/Socialists/Communists/Progressives/Democrats/Educrats/Femanazis/Anti-Americans/#BLM/Thugs/Godless has overwhelmed the once rational thinking of our public school system! Evil is widespread and smothering that which made America GREAT!

  10. Jerry Del Vecchio says

    Shows how misinformed these anti-American liberals are. The National Anthem was penned by Francis Key Scott in the battle of Baltimore during the War of 1812.
    By the dawn’s early light on September 14, 1814, Francis Scott Key peered through a spyglass and spotted an American flag still waving over Baltimore’s Fort McHenry after a fierce night of British bombardment. In a patriotic fervor he penned the words to “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
    The version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” traditionally sung on patriotic occasions and at sporting events is only the song’s first verse. All four verses conclude with the same line: “O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.” (In 1861, poet Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote a fifth verse to support the Union cause in the Civil War and denounce “the traitor that dares to defile the flag of her stars.”) Maybe these people should heed Oliver Wendell Holmes.
    During the Civil War, “The Star-Spangled Banner” was an anthem for Union troops, and the song increased in popularity in the ensuing decades, which led to President Woodrow Wilson signing an executive order in 1916 designating it as “the national anthem of the United States” for all military ceremonies. On March 3, 1931, after 40 previous attempts failed, a measure passed Congress and was signed into law that formally designated “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem of the United States.

    if we are letting little 12 year olds run the educational system -let them find jobs to support california–maybe in the food service industry- let california take care of itself-no aid no water nothing operate on your own

    “Student leadership officials”! So now the students are making the rules?! California breeds idiots and this school is no exception. I have to agree with Justin…pull the “flush handle”. California has gone way over the edge with their bullsh**t “political correctness”. At this time, there is very little “correct” in “politics”.

    I too am a native CA Marine vet and I too hate the the jackasses that run this state and the fools that vote them into office maybe the good people in CA should storm Sacramento throw the crooked politicians in jail where they belong!
