The National Anthem was banned by this high school for one absurd reason

Colin Kaepernick set off a firestorm when he knelt in protest for the National Anthem before an NFL game.

Kneeling for the anthem spread across the NFL and all the way down to high school athletes.

But now this California high school took these protests one step further with this move.

A high school in San Ramon, California is banning the National Anthem from being played at pep rallies.

Fox News reports:

The Star Spangled Banner will no longer be played at rallies at California High School in San Ramon after student leaders determined the song is racially insensitive.

“It was brought to our attention that the national anthem’s third verse is outdated and racially offensive, wrote the president of the school’s Associated Study Body. “We had nothing but good intentions by removing the song so that we could be fully inclusive to our student body.”

“This verse translated, finds joy in the killing of African-Americans,” the student government president alleged. “To think that our nation’s anthem once had the word slave and ‘land of the free’ in the same sentence leaves me speechless.”

Kaepernick’s initial protests led to a decline in NFL ratings.

But now his anti-America sentiment is infiltrating high schools across the country and the effects could be much more damaging.

This is a disaster for everyone who cherishes the values our country was founded on.

And it could lead to even more disrespect of our military veterans.

    If any of these educated (not) idiots actually studied when the anthem was written they would learn that the reference (hireling and slave) is to the Hessian (German) soldiers that were fighting the colonies for the British. Not the black slaves.

    “San Ramon High School” is the fake name for the Insane Asylum there.

    STUDENTS IN THE “PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEMS,” ARE NOT TAUGHT; THEY ARE INDOCTRINATED IN ANTI-AMERICAN REVISIONIST HISTORY FROM KINDERGARTEN THROUGH COLLEGE! That is why they know as the lovable but not very intelligent Sgt Schultz of Stalag 13 in the old WWII comedy series Hogan’ Heroes, NOOOTHING! They are so intrinsically STUPID and made so BY DESIGN, that a group of them from NYU asked about the State of the Union Address roundly criticized it , it’s content and Trump’s policies and statements. However, the interviews on the street took place the DAY BEFORE the State of the Union was delivered before a national TV audience. I repeat: these totally IGNORANT idiots have only a veneer of vituperative venom spawned on them by Pavlovian conditioning to be so. And, like the venerable Sgt. Schultz: THEY KNOW NOOOTHING! Your tax dollars at work! my, aren’t you so very Proud? I THOUGHT NOT!

      Agree totally and no discipline at home and when the kids do something bad in school the parents wonder why the school didn’t discipline their kid or say it couldn’t have been my child he is perfect at home…lol! Also, violent video games make the kids have no respect for other people or their property, these kids live in a fantasy world like movie stars do!

    Colin CRAPERNICK cashed his paycheck with money that said United States currency…if he and the pro athletes dissaprove so much I guess they should refuse the paychecks drawn on American banks…I heard one pro football player saying they put there body on the line…I guess they should go to a military hospital and see who really puts there body on the line…no kids game in a military hospital

    • Sam says:

      The only time they put their bodies on the line is when they walk through the hood they came from . They forget , thats why they are making millions . Go to Iraq and see what it is to put your life on the line , bunch of chicken sh-t whiners

      He certainly did! And still is! Cashing the US Dollar while disrespecting it! $$$$ Never considering the consequences of his actions. They think so highly of themselves this is where it has gotten too! They are praised so much they believe it! And they are working for the team that they are willing to sacrifice! over their beliefs! They should do that on their time! Do we pay to go to the games to hear about their religious beliefs? NO! And if they do not want to respect the Country we live in and our duly elected President then they need to leave. After all, if it wasn’t for our rights that the Military have fought & died for us to keep, they would not be out there getting the VERY BIG BUCKS to play a game!
      They need to respect our Country and our Military! Thank them for keeping us safe and secure. AND FREE TO GO AND WATCH THE GAMES. Otherwise, where would the Football industry be? NOT!?

    Liberals, this nothing more than preying on the weak and impressionable children. “control there minds and there hearts will follow”. After all, there are future voting class, how else to control the vote, by controlling the culture now. This is despicable behavior, Academia can not convince thee adults to follow there doctrine, so now they attack the children without conscience. Any school that perpetrate such Anti-American action should come under federal penalty. And DOJ, should thoroughly investigate the board of education for subversive actions there of. So the Culture War continues, taking even more children as casualties. This is not showing love, or concern for the future of are country. But, maybe liberals don’t care about the country, they care only for themselves.

    If I had school age Kids now they would be home schooled! It is absurd what our kids are subjected to in school these days!

  11. Brenda Hartford says:

    These kids enjoy the freedoms our country gives, yet the complete and utter disrespect just amazes me. If you don’t like the United States and our values than MOVE THE HELL OUT! The schools are dumbing the kids down. California is the worst. They would rather cater to illegal immigrants than to keep our AMERICAN values. I will say it again. if you don’t like and can’t live with and for American values and be proud of your country, Move to Russia, China, Cuba, or one of the middle east countries. You don’t deserve the freedoms our Military men and women have fought to give you…..You people of California. kids included, make my stomach churn….I’m glad my grandfather is not here to see what he fought in WWII for.

    • Mark L. Davis II says:

      Hi Brenda, while we’ve never met I have the greatest respect for you. You definitely know about freedom and the cost that it requires. I was not in WWII but would have gone if I were a year older. However, I had friends and acquaintances that served. some paid the ultimate price. I ultimately joined the army and served.

    More bs in the school ..Its no wonder american schools are rated low compared to other countries. Next more horrible things cause assine nfl player hates america. Nothing more than brainwashing ..I guess if he tells the students to jump off cliff they’re going to. Disgusting

  13. RAY says:

    Its too bad the Teachers don’t know our History so they could inform these ill informed
    (excuse the expression Students) teenagers our founding was about.. If they know where the
    Library is have them go and Look Up Francis Scott Key and see what he did… Look up
    Fort Sumter – Charleston, South Carolina ..Why did he write it? Dig for the answer ..its right there in front of you,,.,.Freedom they fought and died for and you Bellyache about the Flag..
    and taking down statues ..its all about our Heritage a nd Stand at Attention when its played
    and I’m no Racist ….

    The students at this Californian school had best revisit American History, and especially the War of 1812. The student council should be taken to the nearest National Cemetery, shown the rows of Military headstones and given a synopsis of those resting under the stones. It always amazes me that the propaganda given to these misguided youths is so slanted that they cannot grasp the insult to the country that protects them! DOL!
