As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides,” Obama said. “There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song ‘I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing.’ If that were our anthem, then I might salute it.
So something like giving the world a Coke would be cool, but Francis Scott Key’s rememberence of the struggle that created this country is an issue. Well, try this one on for size Captain Kick-ass:
According to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171, During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart.
Obama, you’re no hero and your continued denigration of those that helped to create and defend this great nation remind us of why we will be spending every waking moment defeating you, your ilk, your hatred of the American way of life. Be gone Satan, be gone.
