I saw this video at WND  with article by Joe Kovacs and just had to add my two cents.

If I didn’t see the video below I wouldn’t have believed it.  Now singing “God Bless the USA”, by Lee Greenwood, is considered by some so horrible, so offensive that they stand by the side and scream “Burn in Hell” to school children.

If these “adults” are members of your political leaning all I can say is,

– Thank you for allowing America to see what your vision of patriotism; discipline; civility; respect; diversity; and freedom of speech; is really all about.  Thank you for showing your true selves.


To hear them say that the children don’t even know what they are singing about is an excellent commentary on the state of public education today.  The children were singing about the beauty of the freedom provided to them as citizens of the United States of America, protected for them by those who gave all, and how they’d stand and defend what the flag stands for.

One protestor is heard to say, “You Republicans go to a Republican area, we don’t do that here.” (approx 1:15 into the video)  So we can assume that the protestors are from the Democratic party.  What does this person mean by “that” and “here”.  That would be proclaiming that you’re proud to be an American and here would be a public school.

So what exactly do they teach in public school?  I would imagine the opposite.  It would make sense given Michelle Obama’s famous line, “For the first time in my adult lifetime I’m really proud of my country.”

Here are the lyrics to the song by Lee Greenwood.  I actually had to search them out to find exactly what was so racist and deplorable about them.  I guess I’m just not smart enough to read into the words what others read into them.

God Bless The USA

by Lee Greenwood

If tomorrow all the things were gone,
I’d worked for all my life.
And I had to start again,
with just my children and my wife.

I’d thank my lucky stars,
to be livin here today.
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

From the lakes of Minnesota,
to the hills of Tennessee.
Across the plains of Texas,
From sea to shining sea.

From Detroit down to Houston,
and New York to L.A.
Well there’s pride in every American heart,
and its time we stand and say.

That I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

And I’m proud to be and American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

Nice song.  Now it does have the word “God” in it, which of course makes it offensive to atheists.  Although I don’t think atheists believe in ‘Hell’ if they don’t believe in ‘Heaven’.  So I can’t imagine an atheist shouting “Go to Hell”, to a group of school children.

Who shouts such things at school children?  If someone can take ownership of such group, please do.  Real Americans need to see who you are.
