Libtalker Bill Press: I Hate The National Anthem
Libtalker: Time To Ditch Star-Spangled Banner
For a quick preview of the Dismantling of America expected during Obama's second term, look no further than our always-delightful "progressive" friends.
Are they focused on the lousy economy, lack of jobs or global threats posed by North Korea, Iran and others?
Heck no, ditching that horrible National Anthem (inspired by the War of 1812) is far more important.
We wish it were as simple as pinning the whole idea on one rogue libtalker, in this case Bill Press, but Vanity Fair and 60 Minutes have recently polled Americans on what should replace it. Respondents picked Bruce Springsteen, Jay-Z and others as artists who could draft a new one.
For his part, Press begins by picking apart the song's musical complexities, then attacks its lyrics for daring to suggest America is "the home of the brave".
From today's syndicated Bill Press Show:
BILL PRESS (10:24): 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.
[... Press adds historical background information, then ... ]
PRESS (11:31): ...But it’s an abomination. First it ranges two octaves most people can only do kind of one octave. I mean when you think about it, it’s bombs bursting in air rocket’s red glare it all kinds of, you know a lot of national anthems are that way, all kinds of military jargon and the land there’s only one phrase ‘the land of the free’ which is kind of nice and ‘the home of the brave?’ I don’t know.
OGBURN: I mean I get that part.
PRESS: Are we [Americans] the only ones who are brave on the planet? I mean all the brave people live here. I mean it’s just stupid I think. I’m embarrassed, I’m embarrassed every time I hear it.
Get ready, Americans, this is only the beginning. Their entire agenda will most certainly be kept under wraps until after election day.
