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.


  • I actually agree with Press, we should scarp our current national antham. We should replace it with God Bless America". It's a better song, it's shorter, & it's easier to sing.

    Who's with me?

  • Oh, PLEEEEAAAASE. With the way the left is do you really think that they would allow a national anthem that mentions God? Leave the anthem the way it is. We havea MILLION other issues to deal with that are a thousand times more important to deal with. If Obama wins re-election we won't need to change the anthem because we won't have a country left to sing about.

  • It's his "major crusade and major cause"....???? How very honorable. I actually never heard of this guy before and I hope to never hear any more of his idiocy. Make it is easy on us all, Mr. Maloney - move to another country and you won't have to worry yourself about it!

  • You've never heard of Bill Press but you DO know enough about him to call him a "commie" and an "idiot". The Republican motto: I think; therefore, it is true. Anyone who has the slightest knowledge of music knows The Star Spangled Banner" is impossible for most Americans to sing without switching octaves in the middle. Our country is so beautiful and its wonderful people have accomplished such a wide variety of things; it's too bad to have a national anthem that is only about war.

  • Does anyone really care what Bill Press has to say...He is irrelevant in today's world...If a professional vocal artist can't span two octaves they should not be chosen to sign the National Anthem...The rest of us just "mumble along" anyway...Get over yourself Press..and get off the air until you have something worthwhile to contribute...

  • Anyone that says these things is a commie how god damn dumb do you idiots that want to fundamentally change America really think we are? Wait...I already know. You know what's best for all the rest of us. It's just another thread in the American culture that you and your sort want to do away with. Pavarotti had a 5 Octive voice, So did Elvis you don't have to be a pro to sing that song. It's singable. That's just one of the weak justifications that comes from your side.

  • Think the Anthem is bad now. Try replacing it with one in this politically correct environment. It would be hideous.

  • And now we know the identity of the young man from "Lola" by the Kinks. Who kept coming back for more.

  • "it's too bad to have a national anthem that is only about war."

    If that's what you think it's about then perhaps you should leave.

  • Bill Press is an idiotic clone doing the bidding of his creator(s). Nothing between the ears but gray matter. At night he is once again plugged in to charge.
