California NAACP Leader calling for removal of Star Spangled banner as National anthem
The left is showing their true motive in the National Anthem Protest. Socialism at its core is about removing symbols of a society. That is why earlier this summer the left was in an uproar over Confederate statues. For about two weeks the press had is believing that blacks all across the country were deeply offended by Robert E Lee, Thomas Jefferson even George Washington.
Now the California leader for the NAACP is calling for removal of the Star Spangled banner as the National Anthem.
The NAACP’s California chapter reportedly last week sent out two resolutions, which passed the states council last month. One of the resolutions was to support the removal of the anthem, while the other is an effort to get the sucky original protester Colin Kaepernick on a team.
The group says the song, which has been a point of controversy in the NFL, is “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon,” The Sacramento Bee reported Tuesday.
“We owe a lot of it to Kaepernick,” California NAACP President Alice Huffman told The Sacramento Bee. “I think all this controversy about the knee will go away once the song is removed.”
“Trump got in the middle of it. He blew it out of proportion,” Huffman said of the president, who labeled players who kneel as a “son of a b—h” during an Alabama rally.
The U.S. Congress should adopt a new national anthem that’s not “another song that disenfranchises part of the American population,” Huffman said.
“The Star-Spangled Banner” has been the nation’s anthem since 1931, when President Herbert Hoover signed a congressional act making it the song of the United States.
