    They gave me a copy of the lyrics. I don't agree with the alt-right on everything, except I liked the song. The meter sounds much, much, much better in person and it is instills a feeling of patriotism and nationalism.

    America Must Come First

    We shall make America great,
    Across the entire land.
    Against all the foreign hate,
    Together we will stand.

    From the Gulf of Mexico in the south,
    To the heartland in the north.
    From Atlantic to Pacific coast,
    America must come first!

    A mighty fortress AGAINST the world,
    We will fight with all our worth.
    This land is OURS, it belongs to US,
    America must come first!

    Our walls will NOT be breached,
    Our people will REMAIN FREE.
    Our possessions will NOT be leached,
    America must come first!

    This is OUR great Fatherland,
    Given to us by God.
    Against and ABOVE the world we stand.
    America must come first!

    Each and every single thought,
    Is for the nation and God.
    You and I matter not,
    America must come first!

    WE MUST MAKE AMERICA GREAT!

    AMERICA MUST COME FIRST!
    AMERICA MUST COME FIRST!
    AMERICA MUST COME FIRST!

    Can you imagine the alt-right singing a song like that? How surprising is that? As much as I have to respect our national anthem, if THAT was our national anthem, how enthusiastically would you put your hand on your chest and sing along?

    A mighty fortress against the world? Fatherland? Hmm, reminds me of something.

    They couldn't work the word 'goosestep' into those lyrics? Lazy song writing on their part.

    A bit too heel-clicking for my taste.

    I don't understand why you guys think it's racist. It doesn't strike me as racist, only nationalistic.

    Yeah...doesn't seem exactly racist....it does smell a little Nazi though with the "Fatherland" line.
