House Democrats Move to Remove National Anthem from Sporting Events

The Star-Spangled Banner is America’s song. It represents us all, regardless of our skin color, beliefs, or political leanings. This is why it is shocking to hear that House Democrats moved to hold a vote on removing the national anthem before sporting events, citing its offensiveness to people from other countries.

The bill is expected to easily pass as all professional sports events have been suspended indefinitely.

Ilhan Omar says the move was inspired by professional kneeler Colin Kaepernick. She says he spoke to her recently and inspired her to act:

“We had a meeting with Colin Kaepernick a few weeks ago and he talked to us about criminal justice reform and ways we can help. He suggested that we should ban the national anthem before football games since it offends so many people.

We are taking his advice because we respect the wishes of people with other beliefs. We will have the national anthem banned. It’s not representative of America.”

Republicans are not having it. They are riled up over this news. Senator Joe Barron issued this statement:

“We will not allow this nonsense to go forward. The national anthem is very relevant to sporting events. It should be said thrice a day in fact. We will be pushing a bill to make it mandatory to be sung at all schools and workplaces in the nation thrice daily. The song represents freedom, so we will require it. It’s mandatory.”

It’s good to see at least some in Congress are looking out for the rights of real Americans. If these Democrats are offended by America, then maybe they should pack their bags. There are many Americans willing to help them pack.

  1. WITHOUT THE NATIONAL ANTHEM THERE IS NO AMERICA, WE HAVE THE ANTHEM, THE FLAG, THE PRESIDENT AND THE BIBLE, WITHOUT THEM IT ALL GOES TO SATAN AND THE DEMS. LOOK AT COUNTRIES WITH OUT THE ANTHEM, VENEZUELA, RUSSIA, KOREA, AFRICA, ISLAM, THEY ARE BAD.

  2. Anyone who feels as if the national anthem needs to removed from anything then they need to move to anither country!

  3. Those ladies are public servants to serve the public, not their own agendas! Colin is a washed up football player that is trying to stay in the public eye. SF got rid of him as fast as they could! He has been a free agent and not one team is willing to take him on. Shouldn’t that say somethig???

  4. Clearly the people who believe this can’t read the word SATIRE right at the top of the page.

  5. Please tell me four Muslim women are not going to be able to change our country even a small amount. This is enough. If we allow them this it will not end here. How many other things are you willing to give up. Don’t allow others take away the things that mean a lot to us.

  6. Then if they don’t like the national anthem then they need to move where there is no national anthem . And what is a washes up football player trying to do he’s just mad because nobody wants him on there team.

  7. This is a picture of what DUMB looks like people! Goes to show you that my grandfather was right. He built a large business and he said ” I’m not against college, in fact a college education is a good thing! But, I wouldnt hire a college prick unless he was willing to sweep up my floors first!” College gives you the basics of any career, but your real education starts when you live life for a decade or so and see what the real world is like! You’ll find that common since comes from experience, not education…
