National Anthem Banned at California High School

By definition, progressivism works by increments. For example, Black Lives Matter jackasses start the ball rolling by indulging in disrespectful antics during the national anthem at NFL games. The liberal establishmentarians who run the league encourage them. Moonbat celebrities pile on. Next thing you know, we have gone from jerks having a right to grandstand during the anthem, to the anthem being banned:

Student leaders at a California high school have banned America’s “outdated and racially offensive” national anthem from being played at school rallies.

The Associated Student Body at California High School in San Ramon, in the San Francisco Bay Area, blacklisted “The Star-Spangled Banner” over a third verse that is rarely ever played. …

The verse in questions includes the line “No refuge could save the hireling and slave / From the terror of the flight or the gloom of the grave.”

Few even knew about this verse. But when it comes to tearing down America, any pretext that reminds the belligerently offended that long, long ago there was slavery will do.

Student Body President Ariyana Kermanizadeh explained that the majority who cherish our national anthem must be excluded “so that we could be fully inclusive.”

“[T]his song was written in 1814,” Kermanizadeh said. “This was written 204 years ago. Imagine all the traditions and laws that have changed … [and] so must our traditions.”

It would be fair to assume that Ariyana Kermanizadeh is not heavily invested in our traditions.

    ban all mention of slavery — and nobody will ever believe it existed


    That sounds like a nice moslem name.. they invade and prattle on about how “laws and traditions have changed” in the countries they infest, while they insist on their laws and traditions anywhere they have managed to weasel their way into.

    Can we sent her back to Iran? Mullahs love her type.

    Maybe teaching accurate history is needed instead of searching for reasons to fuel perpetual outrage. Immigrants used to be thankful to be allowed to enjoy what this country had to offer instead of bashing it for things we no longer do. It’s not as if the rest of the world has cleaned up its act and become better places to live than here. People are still coming here and if they want to stay, they should learn why this country is different.

    The ‘hireling and slave’ that Francis Scott Key was referring to were mercenary soldiers and press gangs. The latter were often American citizens seized from merchant ships on the high seas by the British, one of the points of contention that lead to the War of 1812. If you are going to study something, study it thoroughly.

    It would be fair to assume that ol’ whatshisface is a preening @sshole, ignorant as the day is long, and aggressive with it.

    Please have pity on this person. It’s obvious that she hasn’t had the opportunity to study either poetry or history. Her parents should sue the state of California for the taxes they’ve paid for education.

    Just the mention of the word “slave”…..

    No anthem, no Federal school funds. After all, you kids wouldn’t want to take money from a country that won’t change its traditions on a whim, right? Maybe the idiots should look up the word tradition in a dictionary. Hint: It’s the big book with all the words in it that would be traditionally found in your school library.

    Exactly so,
    and by the sound of your name you may know the rebel Irish song Father Murphy
    Look out for hirelings, King George of England,

    Search ev’ry kingdom where breathes a slave,

    For Father Murphy of the County Wexford

    Sweeps o’er the land like a mighty wave.
    I doubt if Ariyana Kermanizadeh has the faintest idea of history.

  12. Belfast says:

    Wha will be a traitor knave?
    Wha can fill a coward’s grave?
    Wha sae base as be a slave?
    Let him turn and flee!

    That,s from an even earlier one ,”Scots wha hae”
