Patriotic students told to stop singing national anthem at 9/11 Memorial because they didn't have a permit

Security guards at the 9/11 Memorial didn't appreciate it when a group of middle school kids visiting from North Carolina began singing the Star-Spangled Banner.

Waynesville Middle School music teacher, Martha Brown told the NY Post that one guard yelled at the students to stop.



“You have to stop. This is considered a public demonstration!” he cried, according to Brown.

The group of kids apparently needed a permit in order to be allowed to sing.

A moment of silence for 9/11 victims is offensive to Muslims say University students

“Some of the students were very upset and confused. I told the children, ‘This is a place where you need to respect authority even if you don’t understand it,” she said.

The children were nearly finished the anthem when the security guards stepped in.

One mother filmed the incident and put it on Facebook where it has been viewed over 300,000 times.

“So sad this is happening everywhere. They sounded great. God Bless America!” Connie Shepherd Scanlon wrote.

A spokeswoman for the 9/11 Memorial has admitted that they were in the wrong.

“The guard did not respond appropriately. We are working with our security staff to ensure that this does not happen again with future student performances,” she said.

No, I want war when it is absolutely necessary.

The problem with governments nowadays is war is the easy solution.

Peace is hard to come by especially after 9/11. I want non-interventionism and war in the most extreme cases. That is the difference.

Who wants to sacrifice money all the time?! It is like what Cheney said in the 2000’s which applies to conservatism nowadays that no matter how much money we waste we need to fight. That in essence means he wants to use up or basically bankrupt the nation to fight this War on Terror, which has been poorly defined mind you. Sounds about right regarding foreign policy decision-making nowadays. That is where I differ.

Boy oh boy, I just found the perfect replacement for Dustbin Justin.
The man is extremely eloquent, using a lot of words to present convoluted ideas that just like Dustbin Justin, don’t mean freak in thing!
I think we could replace Dustbin Justin with him sine both have big words and what they say is so weird, far fetched and complete and utter BS that you would think the he could be Dustbin’s doppelgänger.
His name: John Siciliano!
Send Justin to the Dustbin

So what does this teach these young people? That patriotism and love for your country are “taboo”; that one should be ashamed of one’s country; that freedom of expression does NOt exist…??? Well done, students, I enjoyed your singing. Any time you want to come to Canada and sing for us, you are welcome.

“When you can’t sing the American National Anthem in America or the Canadian National Anthem in Canada, something is seriously wrong in North America – patriotism is dead and it appears we are stuck with UNculturalism.”

How very true.
Though this is not shocking. Both Canada and the US were built upon Christian principles and values, with the destruction of said values this is the natural devolution.

But you just showed how flat footed you are as well Mongrel because you are in essence by support globalism supporting a system where we allow ourselves to transition and lead ourselves to neo-feudalism where we will have no economy left while the other 3rd world economies do better.

I thought neocons/Conservatives were about preserving the nation but they continue to prove my point that they are for selling out the nation, which is why staying in the nationalist phase and modernizing is the best system to have.

And how does war improve anything?

I do not label myself as a progressive because nationalists believe that the government has to structure society enough to allow for full employment and it is the transition between corporatized capitalism which we have now and democratic socialism. That means that nationalism can be left wing nationalist, centrist nationalist or even right wing nationalist. I do not endorse National-Socialism but that is a variant as well.

I would label myself as a centrist nationalist because they can support a wide swath of Canadian society.

And I am speaking as a nationalist. The NDP supports free trade just like the LIBS and CONS.

I never smoked or drank in my entire life.

Our economics teacher even suggested that the protectionist and manufacturing model with tariffs was the best model with small business around it with a massively controlled corporate sector.

Otherwise you will get fascism or oligarchy!

Silciliano is a dance related to the Taratela, which is in turn a dance made frantic through good drugs.

John-John is clearly on these drugs.

At one point John-John states:

“I regard patriotism and nationalism as protectionism, defending the nation, full employment, not sending troops in harm’s way, being anti-racist and truly being for domestic jobs. These are nationalist and patriotic and not globalist like Rebel and its supporters!”

Indicating isolationism as opposed to having a global outlook like progressives of the right who want the world improved.

But then John-John writes,

" I think it is patriotic since you want real policies that help people. "

The people that need help are the 3rd world poor, requiring globalism which John-John is opposed to because he is isolationist.

Yep…great drugs to dance the Siciliano to, or maybe John-John needs to go beyond his high school textbook. Except I find his low info contradictions so much entertainment.

How is focusing on domestic policies and being anti-war and anti-imperialist being an apologist. I think it is patriotic since you want real policies that help people.

Siciliano,
Another Syrian ragtop apologist.

The land of the free?
So the Muslims can block off downtown NYC to praise Allah but a couple dozen kids can’t sing their national anthem.
Who’s running the show anyway?
Oh, the Muslims are!
Down with the Muslims!
Justin to the dustbin!

Patriotism can be defined by many issues.

It is a shame that Rebel only defines patriotism by sounding a certain way rather than wanting to provide full employment, standing with humanity and against war and also wanting to stay out of conflicts.

These issues I would regard as being against foreign entanglements and thus for building up the homeland and defined as real patriotism.

Calling oneself patriotism and holding a flag does not make one patriotic. How one truly stands with the nation is real patriotism. Rebel defines its patriotism as selling out the nation as fast as possible and being for failed and flawed free trade agreements.

I regard patriotism and nationalism as protectionism, defending the nation, full employment, not sending troops in harm’s way, being anti-racist and truly being for domestic jobs. These are nationalist and patriotic and not globalist like Rebel and its supporters!

I would sing my country’s anthem no matter what some security person says. This backlash against our pride in our countries, is because the UN’s Agenda doesn’t allow for it. Both Merkel and B.O. have been refusing their countries flags, and there just isn’t any other reason, than they have sold out democracy to that evil terrorist hot bed the UN, for their one world government. Keep singing no matter what these jackoffs say!

Of course they had a permit and they should have told the ignorant security guards that. It’s called the Constitution of the United States of America.

What a long ways backward from Cubs center fielder, Rick Monday, 40 years ago as per an earlier Rebel story to today where American school children can’t even sing the American anthem at a memorial to the victims of Islamic atrocity. I wonder if the music teacher will be brought before a judge on hate crimes for promoting such a sacrilege as teaching American children that they can proudly sing their anthem. That would certainly be the case in front of the Canadian kangaroo commissions (aka Non-Human Rights Commissions).

On the other hand, I bet a muezzin could have screeched his head off with a call to prayer at the memorial to the 9/11 muslim atrocity.

I hope everyone comes together and sings their lungs out. That security idiot needs to check his American privilege . Hey I know, he can go live in a mussy country.
