The California chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has demanded that the national anthem of the United States—The Star Spangled Banner—be abolished because it is “racist,” and has started lobbying state lawmakers to this end.
According to a report in the Sacramento Bee, the CA NAACP last week began circulating among legislative offices two resolutions that passed at its state conference in October: one urging Congress to rescind “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon” as the national anthem, and another in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who launched a protest movement against police brutality among professional athletes by kneeling when “The Star-Spangled Banner” was played before games.
“We owe a lot of it to Kaepernick,” California NAACP President Alice Huffman said. “I think all this controversy about the knee will go away once the song is removed.”
(Ironically, Huffman sports either a wig or chemically straightened hair, dyed red in a vain attempt to make her look more European, the very race she so stridently opposes).
“The Star-Spangled Banner” was written by Francis Scott Key after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry by British ships of the Royal Navy in Baltimore Harbor during the Battle of Baltimore in the War of 1812.
Key was inspired by the large American flag, the Star-Spangled Banner, flying triumphantly above the fort during the American victory. The actual flag is today in the Smithsonian as a national treasure.
The demand to abolish the anthem stems from its infrequently-sung third verse, which reads as follows:
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.
Although it is obvious that the lyrics refer to those “hirelings” and “slaves” of the British Empire which in 1812 attempted to reverse the outcome of the Revolutionary War and reestablish British domination over North America, uninformed—or deliberately malicious—interpretations such as that currently being propagated by the NAACP claim that the “slaves” reference means blacks.
There is, of course, no evidence to support this claim, but this minor fact has not stopped the ongoing anti-white frenzy of hatred which continues to stream forth from the controlled media.
Huffman told the SAcromanto Bee, for example, that Congress, which adopted “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem in 1931, should find a replacement that is not “another song that disenfranchises part of the American population.”
She drafted the NAACP’s resolutions this fall after President Donald Trump suggested NFL owners should fire any “son of a bitch” who doesn’t stand for the anthem.
The second resolution calls on Congress to censure Trump for his remarks, and asks NFL teams to find a spot for Kaepernick, who some believe was blacklisted over the protests.
- Huffman and the controlled media see no problem with a racially-based organization such as the NAACP, but would scream “racist” at a “National Association for the Advancement of White People.”
