    Wow, unbelievable.

    If they think the American National Anthem is violent, they should read the words to the Mexican National Anthem:

    "Mexicans, at the cry of war
    Make ready the steel and the bridle
    And let the earth shake to the core
    At the roar of the cannon
    And let the earth shake to the core
    At the roar of the cannon

    Gird, oh country, your head with an olive wreath
    Given by the divine archangel of peace
    Since your eternal destiny was written in heaven
    by the finger of God
    But should a foreign enemy
    Profane your ground with their sole
    Think, oh beloved country, that heaven
    Has given you a soldier in every son

    Dear homeland! Dear homeland!
    Your children swear
    To exhale breath in your cause
    If the bugle in its belligerent (warlike) tone
    Summons them to fight with courage
    You will get the olive garlands!
    They will have a memory of glory!
    You will get a laurel of victory!
    They will have a tomb of honor!"

    The anthem is obviously racist, being it celebrates the murder of escaped slaves. I know stating that simple fact will trigger many of the snowflakes, but they need to dragged screaming into reality.

    If they disagree, they should explain why celebrating the murder of escaped slaves isn't racist. But they won't. They'll just throw a snowflake tantrum.

    You're referring to the third verse, right? Maybe you'd like to explain to the class just how it "celebrates the murder of escaped slaves"?

    And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
    That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
    A home and a country should leave us no more?
    Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution!
    No refuge could save the hireling and slave
    From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    I don't see it. Does anyone else see it?

    Leftists see only what they want to see. No argument, no evince can sway them. All they have is their hatred of imaginary wrongs. They are professional victims who crave power over others. They cloak themselves in righteousness while trampling the rights of others, failing to recognize that they have become the very thing they claim to hate.

    A solution might be Madagascar. The people are killing themselves with the plague. The little nation might be completely depopulated of humans before long. Send the America haters there.

    And the American people have been sick and tired of rightwing lies and dishonesty for a very long time now.

    This thread is yet another example of conservative dishonesty.

    It is not ‘un-American’ to express an opinion or make demands of government – indeed, it’s the epitome of American patriotism.

    That seems a rather exessive trip that would contribute to global warming and so on. We should save the planet and send them to Cuba or Venezuela, their socialist utopian paradise.

    The National Anthem is racist.
    America is racist.
    America is greedy.
    America is imperialist.
    America is stupid.
    America must be fundamentally changed.
    Capitalism is evil.
    Christianity is evil.
    American corporations are evil.
    All "offensive" American traditions must be wiped from public view.
    All "offensive" American speech must be shut down, shouted down or punished.
    America was stolen from Mexico.
    America was stolen from the Indians.
    America's Constitution is outdated.
    America's Constitution was written by rich, white slave rapists.

    ... all brought to you by the same people. They make their opinion of this country crystal clear.

    The song was written by Frances Scott Key, who watched the attack from a British ship.
    The ship was full of POW's.
    Key was negotiating their release, and yes many of the POW's were hirelings or ex-slaves.
    Sorry, but take this into context, not verbatim.
