The following article, POLL: Americans Still Support National Anthem Despite Woke Attack by Leftists and Democrats, was first published on Flag And Cross.
A new poll finds that there is still strong support for the national anthem despite the all-out war against it launched by woke leftists and the Democrat Party.
The pool taken as the 2021 NFL season looms finds that most Americans still want the anthem played.
As reported by Just the News:
According to a recent poll conducted by Newt Gingrich’s American Majority Project in conjunction with McLaughlin & Associates, a total of 61% of Americans believe that “only” the American National Anthem should be played at NFL Games. That figure ticks up slightly to 64% among Republicans, and falls to 58% among Independents, while 11% of those polled said they don’t know.
The poll was conducted in the wake of the NFL’s recent decision to play “Lift Every Voice and Sing” – often referred to as the black national anthem – before all games during the upcoming season, ahead of the playing of the American National Anthem. The song was initially introduced by the NFL when it was sung by Alicia Keys at the Super Bowl for the 2020-2021 season. The decision to play the song before each game is reportedly part of the league’s quarter billion-dollar investment in social justice messaging and initiatives.
Sorry, folks, but there is no such thing as the “black national anthem.”
There is one national anthem, and that is the Star Spangled Banner.
We do not have separate anthems Balkanizing America.
You either love America and sing the Star Spangled Banner, or you hate America. There are no other options.
