In today's episode of “What in the hell is wrong with California?”, we have the Californian National Association for the Advancement of Colored People once again trying to not only rewrite history but desecrate America further by removing the National Anthem.

That's right folks, the Star Spangled Banner, whose lyrics were written in the year 1814 on September 14th by one Francis Scott Key; is now considered somehow “racist” by the NAACP.

The history behind the National Anthem is interesting, and no doubt these fine members of the Black community have no idea just what in the hell they're talking about when they say it's a symbol of bigotry.

The poem was set to the tune of a popular British song written by John Stafford Smith for the Anacreontic Society, a man's social club in London.

“To Anacreon in Heaven” (or “The Anacreontic Song”!), with various lyrics, was already popular in the United States. Set to Key's poem and renamed “The Star-Spangled Banner”, it soon became a well-known American patriotic song.

“The Star-Spangled Banner” was recognized for official use by the United States Navy in 1889, and by U.S. President Woodrow Wilson in 1916, and was made the national anthem by a Congressional Resolution on March 3, 1931 (46 Stat. 1508, codified at 36 U.S.C. § 301), which was later signed by President Herbert Hoover.

It's a folk song on top of a traditional European song which was meant to signify America's Patriotism after the War of 1812 and the resiliency of the Flag of the United States of America.

Take a look at the original words written by Francis Scott Key and tell me where on the National Anthem you see symbolic racism after you've read it.

<blockquote>”O say can you see, by the dawn's early light,

What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming,

Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight

O'er the ramparts we watch'd were so gallantly streaming?

And the rocket's red glare, the bomb bursting in air,

Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,

O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?”</blockquote>

<blockquote>”On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep

Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,

What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,

As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?

Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,

In full glory reflected now shines in the stream,

'Tis the star-spangled banner - O long may it wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!”</blockquote>

<blockquote>”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 wash'd out their foul footstep's 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.”</blockquote>

<blockquote>”O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand

Between their lov'd home and the war's desolation!

Blest with vict'ry and peace may the heav'n rescued land

Praise the power that hath made and preserv'd us a nation!

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,

And this be our motto - "In God is our trust,"

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”</blockquote>

That's a glorious song. A beautiful tradition that shall not be infringed upon.

Seriously, it won't be. There are men and women including myself that will die for that song.

Alice Huffman, who's the President of the California chapter of the NAACP, said that the song is “racist” and that it “doesn’t represent our community. It’s anti-black people.”

Well, Miss Huffman is more than welcome to go back to a mud hut in Africa if she's doesn't like it here, first and foremost.

Second, I assure you that men and women of every color and creed will not allow this to happen.

According to the NAACP however it's the third verse of the National Anthem which hold the racial tones.

The third verse includes a line that says, “no refuge could save the hireling and slave from the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave.”

Let's remind her first than in 1814 slavery was legal, and second let's remind her that harping upon a time when neither her, her grandparents, her great-grandparents, or her great-great-grandparents were alive is beyond idiotic and quite frankly it's divisive.

“This song is wrong,” chapter president Alice Huffman told the station. “It should never have been there, and just like we didn't have it until 1931, it won't kill us if it goes away.”

She should never have been here in the first place and I promise you it won't kill us if she leaves.

As for the rest of America, we will keep respecting our Anthem.

Apparently the sagging ratings of the NFL haven't taught these people their lesson yet.

Huffman went on to say, “This country is a country that has shared values, and the more we respect each other, the better off we'll be as a country.”

How amusing. She clearly has no respect for anyone but herself and her virtue signaling.

In fact, <a href="https://www.cbsnews.com/news/national-anthem-lyrics-california-naacp-star-spangled-banner/">CBS News spoke to several black patrons at a Veterans of Foreign Wars </a>outpost in West Sacramento disagreed with the NAACP entirely.

“That's an extreme way of doing things,” said Kenneth Lu, a veteran living in Davis.

“I believe it is a slap across the face,” said Sydney Lugo. “Whether there's some kind of little flaw in the context of what this is, I don't see it that way. I have to stick with our traditions and our values and what we represent.”

“It won't solve any problem,” said veteran John Cox.

Let's be honest, West Coast Liberals are just acting like complete morons at this point.

It's just another sign of the Culture War that's ongoing in America to take another battlefront, and this time it's targeting the National Anthem.

Make no mistake; this war will be fought and won and history will favor the patriots in the end.
