The stunning news just dropped about a replacement for the National Anthem and America is shocked. Liberals want to abolish the Star-Spangled Banner completely — they are officially calling for it now.
Writing for the Los Angeles Times, columnist Jody Rosen has demanded that we cancel the anthem over a verse Francis Scott Key wrote — one we don’t even sing — and because the song is “difficult to sing” for people.
“No refuge could save the hireling and slave/From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave,” was written by Key, yet it isn’t officially part of the anthem. But Rosen thinks it should be done replaced anyway.
The liberal journalist also said, “Its lyrics are ornate and Anglophile, with syntax that frustrates the efforts of normal human Americans to follow along — to deduce who or what, exactly, is gleaming and streaming.”
Rosen then suggested that the anthem should be replaced with ‘Lean on Me,’ Bill Withers’ 1972 mega-hit. He had much more to say, of course, but it was nothing more than twisted logic and anti-American sentiment all the way through.
While Withers’ song is perfectly fine, it isn’t the least bit patriotic — nor does it recall our nation’s history. The Star-Spangled Banner is about all Americans coming together in “the land of the free, and the home of the brave.”
