“On the Holmes Front, with Frank Holmes”
The California chapter of the NAACP has demanded that the National Anthem be replaced, because it’s racist – and they want an entire U.S. state to pass a law condemning it.
California NAACP President Alice Huffman said the Star Spangled Banner is “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon.”
“It’s racist!” she told local KOVR-TV. “It’s anti-black people!”
The NAACP chapter will try to get California legislators to pass a law saying the National Anthem is filthy, racist hate speech when the legislature is back in session next January.
“The song is wrong!” Huffman said in Jesse Jackson-style rhyme.
They want politicians to pass another law honoring former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for starting the “take a knee” trend. GQ Magazine named him “Citizen of the Year” for starting the “take a knee” trend that sank the NFL’s ratings.
He might as well get awards from fashion magazines. He’s not getting any awards on the field.
The NAACP also wants California to reprimand Donald Trump for saying he’d like to see the NFL fire any “son of a b*tch” who doesn’t stand for the flag and the anthem.
The worst thing isn’t the NAACP’s display of pure hatred for their own country. It’s that people are already being fired for defending the U.S.A.

The Left has ramped up its assault on every patriotic symbol in America, like –
The Pledge of Allegiance.
In March, a public school district fired a teacher for telling one of his students to stand up for the pledge to the flag.
Vince Ziebarth, a driver’s ed teacher at Eisenhower High School in a suburb on the south-side of Chicago, saw one of his students sitting through the Pledge. He told the student, Shemar Cooper, he should stand – or not ride in his car for driver’s ed.
Kids at the high school get to choose which of the 8 driver’s ed cars they want to ride in. So, if Shemar wanted to disrespect the Pledge, he could have chosen any of the other 7 cars.
Instead, Shemar went home and told his mommy. “That’s bullying!” said his mad mother, Kelley Porter Turner. “He violated my son’s First Amendment rights.”
….Which exist because of the men who died for the flag.

The school fired the patriot teacher on the spot.
It turns out they suspended another teacher for telling Shemar to stand for the Pledge earlier in the school year.
That’s pretty ironic for a school that’s named for the president who added the words “under God” to the Pledge of Allegiance.
But the fake news media is constantly ginning up fake history to make people hate America.
The Washington Post recently ran an article saying the Pledge of Allegiance is racist – because its author wanted immigrants to love America!
Francis “Bellamy’s pledge advanced the goal of assimilation,” the Post complained in an article on “The Ugly History of the Pledge of Allegiance.”

Bellamy said he wrote the Pledge to “mobilize the masses to support primary American doctrines” and “true Americanism.”
“Bellamy’s Pledge of Allegiance was, at its core, designed as an instrument of white nationalism,” the Post said.
Really? White nationalism against white immigrants from Italy, Greece, and Poland? (Are there any paler people than the Polish??)
But when the George Soros-funded haters aren’t hating the Pledge, they’re hating –
The American Flag.
Since the 2016 election:
- Hampshire College in Massachusetts removed the American flag from campus after the election of Donald Trump.
- Students agitated the University of California, Irvine to ban the U.S. flag from a campus office. A letter supporting them has almost 2,000 signatures, including dozens of professors.
- Students at American University burned American flags while chanting “F— white America!” the day after the election.
- Last Veteran’s Day, students at Brown University grabbed flags flying to honor vets and tore them, ripped them in half, or threw them in the trash.
- Students at St. Mary’s College of Maryland shredded an American flag two days after the election.
As President Trump might say, this is “sad.” But these people don’t just hate our patriotic symbols – they hate
Kanye West said last November, “We live in a racist country – that is a fact.” That’s exactly how a lot of Americans see this country – racist, sexist, evil, not worth defending.
This is just plain wrong, and every patriotic American had better stand up against it, no matter how corny it looks to some people.
Rise for the anthem and the pledge. Salute when you see the flag.
Teach your kids, and grandkids, the true history of America, the land of liberty.
Tell them about how patriots created the finest, freest country in the world.
Tell them how we fought with ourselves to free the slaves and to give that freedom to more and more people through our history.
Tell them they’d be shot for talking about any other country the way they talk about their own.
And tell them to have a little respect for the people who died to keep them free.
Who knows? You just might save the country.
