High school bans ‘outdated and racially
offensive’ national anthem from rallies

Washington Times, by Victor Morton

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/14/2018 9:24:56 AM

Student leaders at a high school in the San Francisco Bay Area have decided that the national anthem is racist and outdated and have banned it from school rallies. According to multiple area news outlets, the Associated Student Body at California High School in San Ramon made that decision based on a phrase in the rarely-played third verse. “It was brought to our attention that the national anthem’s third verse is outdated and racially offensive,” Ariyana Kermanizadeh wrote in an open letter. “We had nothing but good intentions by removing the song so that we could be fully inclusive to our student

Comments:
I am so very sick of the BS from the radical left who encourage ´inclusivity´ when they have no intention of that whatsoever. Naturally this occurred in San Francisco, the bastion of the America haters. Who is this Ariyana Kermanizadeh? Who are the individuals who put her up to this? Is she an illegal? At least there is huge pushback and not all from conservatives.

Didn´t we fight a civil war over secession? Since when can a high school secede?
No more Federal funds for this school.
What country do they live in?

Complete absurdity.

There would be controversy over any song chosen as the National Anthem. My Country ´Tis of Thee? God Bless America? America the Beautiful? Nope, nope, nope. Too much mention of God. Simply forbid the 3rd verse from being sung. That would mean that .00001% of the times the anthem is sung in a year the 3rd verse would have to remain unsung.

If this school is getting any federal funds, pull them immediately. If the student´s families are being subsidized by WTP, pull their funds too.

If they can´t honor the country they live in, the taxpayers shouldn´t be forced to subsidize them.

Next question, how many of the student leaders are illegals?

Had to look it up. Never heard it before.

Evidently Francis Key was hacked off at escaped slaves who assisted the British during the War of 1812.

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 wash’d out their foul footstep’s 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

FTA "“We understand that this third verse is not included when the anthem is performed, but still, what does this tell us?” she said."

Well that third verse tells me no one can hide from difficult times or death. But that´s just my interpretation. No one knows what Key meant. But today political correctness demands any time, any where, by anyone if the word "slave" is mentioned it´s racist. The left continues to demand that certain words they don´t like be eliminated and change the meanings of other words to further their leftist ideology. Absolute nonsense.

San Ramon is a nice little town, too bad they´re not teaching critical thinking to their kids. They see the word "slave" and they think "black people". So the song is against hirelings and black people. Does that make sense? Could "slave" refer to the impressed British seamen on those attacking warships? In a well-run school, this would have been a teachable moment.

If they want to talk about slaves, lets talk about this - we who work in this country, work as slaves for the first 5 months of the year in order to have the fruits of our labor taken from us and our families and given to others who sit on their arses.

If that isn’t slavery, I don’t know what is.

What if just one student, teacher or parent stood up at a school function and began singing the National Anthem? Just one! What if two did it? Or ten? Would the police come and haul them away? Would the School expel the students connected to the event? And I want to know, if just one can say, "I feel uncomfortable because I hear the words of the national anthem", and these school morons rush to then ban the Anthem, what about the students who might say, "I feel uncomfortable not hearing the words of the National anthem?" who will rush to their defense?

These uneducated punks don´t even know the story behind our Anthem, yet spew prog/DemonRat talking points. The men mentioned who were not free were those kept on dungeon ships at sea that the stinking British allowed to fester with disease and starvation. That was the sole reason Francis Scott Key was out there in the first place, to negotiate their freedom.

The first slaves in America were WHITE. They were worth LESS than blacks brought over from Africa and elsewhere. Irish Catholics and confiscated children from London were worked to death in the Colonies because they were always FREE courtesy of The Crown. Blacks cost money.

Learn your history, punks.

the third verse of the anthem has absolutely nothing to do with racism.

school system needs to be less niggardly with history classes and cut back on the social justice curriculum.

I´d bet dollars to donuts that they haven´t been singing the 3rd verse before events anyway. Simple solution: ban the singing of the 3rd verse! Historical context: the slaves referred to were the impressed seaman on the British ships; the hirelings were the German mercenaries employed by the British Army. The impressing of American seamen was one of the causes of the War of 1812 during which the verses were composed. History is important, snowflakes.

On his Facebook page Wednesday morning, nationally syndicated radio talk show host, TV host, author and American lawyer Mark Levin blasted “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller for “disrupting and threatening the presidency” and chided the GOP Congress for allowing it, saying, “Mueller cannot be a power unto himself.” “Here’s a thought […] Rather than try to pass legislation to protect ‘Special Counsel’ Mueller, the GOP Congress should subpoena Mueller and demand he answer legitimate questions about the course of his investigation—especially given its constitutional impact,” Mark Levin wrote on his Facebook page. “Congress need not wait for Mueller to issue his pronouncements.

The Justice Department should not permit the president to be interrogated on so paltry and presumptuous a showing. I am assuming the authenticity of the questions that Special Counsel Robert Mueller reportedly wants to ask President Trump. The questions indicate that, after a year of his own investigation and two years of FBI investigation, the prosecutor lacks evidence of a crime. Yet he seeks to probe the chief executive’s motives and thought processes regarding exercises of presidential power that were lawful, regardless of one’s view of their wisdom. If Bob Mueller wants that kind of control over the executive branch, he should

Sixty-five percent of the eighth graders in American public schools in 2017 were not proficient in reading and 67 percent were not proficient in mathematics, according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress test results released by the U.S. Department of Education. The results are far worse for students enrolled in some urban districts. Among the 27 large urban districts for which the Department of Education published 2017 NAEP test scores, the Detroit public schools had the lowest percentage of students who scored proficient or better in math and the lowest percentage who scored proficient or better in reading.

SAN YSIDRO PORT OF ENTRY - Eight women and children from a caravan of hundreds of Central American migrants have sought asylum in the United States after officials allowed them entry from Mexico, fueling hope among their companions who remain camped outside the border crossing.

His administration’s hands are tied, however,

Netanyahu presented a trove of over 100,000 files, both paper and electronic, that he said Israel had obtained from a “vault” where Iran had stored an archive of its nuclear research. The files included diagrams of nuclear detonation devices, nuclear warhead designs, and plans for nuclear testing sites, among other incriminating information.

An excerpt of the book was posted Monday on Apple News. “If I hadn’t admitted that to myself before this summer, a stage 4 cancer diagnosis acts as ungentle persuasion,” McCain continues. “I’m freer than colleagues who will face the voters again.
