NFL Football players didn’t stand for the National Anthem before 2009… afterwards, it was a Pentagon-financed initiative to hype up “patriotism”. I notice that poor men die to line the pockets of the rich. Eugene V Debs put it right… “In every age it has been the tyrant, the oppressor, and the exploiter who has wrapped himself in the cloak of patriotism, or religion, or both to deceive and overawe the people”. Many miners in NEPA voted for Debs for Prez… today, their descendants vote for the Duopoly… shameful! Note well that none of the oligarchs or their Upper Middle lackeys send THEIR sons to die in their wars for profit… however, they want you to send YOUR sons to die to fatten their bottom-line. That’s the equation… the blood of poor men = more money for rich men. Don’t buy into that rubbish. Don’t stand for the National Anthem… the One Percent use it for evil purposes…
Be a true patriot… stand up against treacly “patriotic displays” used to justify wars in foreign parts and oppression at home.
