Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog know that I feel that the old Liberal vs Conservative paradigm is hopelessly outdated. I also feel that national anthems, flags and pledges of allegiance are silly anachronisms.
That means I don’t care if athletes stand or sit or play with themselves during the national anthem of the U.S. or ANY country. This entire situation highlights the usual hypocrisy of Liberals and Conservatives. Conservatives huff and puff indignantly at athletes protesting the Star Spangled Banner but would no doubt consider it “legitimate protest” to sit out the national anthem of countries on hostile terms with the U.S.
American Liberals, meanwhile, practically orgasm at the thought of people sitting out the United States’ national anthem but would no doubt froth at the mouth if Americans refused to stand for the national anthem of, say, Mexico or other countries.
I also feel the entire pledge of allegiance should be done away with, not just the ridiculous “under God” part. While we’re at it I would get rid of the playing of Hail to the Chief whenever a U.S. president enters the room.
And when it comes to flags I don’t care if people burn the flag of ANY COUNTRY and then piss on the ashes. Conservatives would throw fits about someone doing that to the American flag but would be okay with anyone doing that to a foreign flag. Liberals would love it if people did that to the American flag but would tsk, tsk and label it “xenophobia” if people did that to a foreign flag.
