There is only one National Anthem. And it’s the only one Americans should honor by standing, hand over heart.
However, in their never-ending quest to placate woke social justice warriors, the NFL decided to play what they would like to convince America is the ‘Black national anthem’ prior to Sunday’s Super Bowl game.
Former Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake wasn’t having any of the nonsense.
An image quickly circulated of Lake sitting in her seat, looking incredibly unimpressed, while others around her stood during the playing of the so-called anthem.
On social media, she responded to the image writing, “I’m just here for THE National Anthem.”

Kari Lake Refuses to Stand for ‘Black National Anthem’
Sunday marked the first time the ‘Black national anthem’ was played before the Super Bowl game, a milestone Kari Lake seemingly couldn’t have cared less about.
Nor should she have.
The National Football League (NFL) announced in 2020 that they would have the song “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” either performed live or played on a recording before the actual National Anthem during their weekly contests.
Because apparently being woke means having separate anthems – black and white – for separate people. That sounds an awful lot like segregation.
But then, that’s what leftists want – to set us back 100 years in race relations by reversing roles. At some point down the line, there’s no doubt they’ll push to have the ‘Black national anthem’ played as the exclusive song prior to the big game.
I will never stand for a Black National Anthem. I wouldn’t stand for a Brown or White National Anthem.
If you have to put race in front of an Anthem then you are racist.
I will only stand for America’s one and only National Anthem.
We are all Americans

Support For Lake
Nothing quite exemplifies the hypocrisy of the NFL quite like having end zone messages stating “end racism” while trying to divide America by race. And yet, that’s exactly what they are trying to do.
Kari Lake was right to sit during the ‘Black national anthem.’ In fact, the only thing that would have been better is if she moved into the center aisle and took a knee instead.
Many people saw the image of Lake sitting while other mindless lemmings stood for a fake national anthem and commended her.
Singer Lisa Matassa responded to the photo saying, “For the record, it’s ‘ONE NATION UNDER GOD’. No reason whatsoever to sow the seeds of division with two National Anthems during the #SuperBowlLVII.”

“The REAL national anthem is for ALL people,” one person replied to Lake.
“Proud of her!” wrote Newsmax contributor and former lawyer to President Donald Trump, Jenna Ellis.
Radio host Todd Starnes pointed out how the woke liberal mob would have blasted her whether she stood or sat for the ‘Black national anthem.’
“There’s no reason to stand for a song that is not our national anthem — but had (Lake) stood — they would’ve accused her of cultural appropriation,” he mused.

Aside from putting a pathetic, nearly no tackle product on the field, decided by referees who have clearly taken more social justice classes than officiating classes, we now have to sit through constant lectures during the game about how racist America is.
Hence the need for a fake ‘Black national anthem.’
On the flip side of the current debate, there is this.
In 2016 the Dallas Cowboys were forbidden from wearing decals honoring fallen members of the Dallas Police Department.
The Cowboys had requested an opportunity to commemorate those who fell victim to the Dallas shooting in July of 2016, in which officers were specifically targeted.
The NFL denied that request.
Watching this garbage league is like watching ‘The View’ but with the hosts wearing shoulder pads. They’re woke. They’re hypocritical. And they’re pathetic.
