In order to come to the support of the virulently anti-American blather disgorged by San Francisco 49ers player Colin Kaepernick, some in the media are claiming that the National Anthem has a verse supporting slavery. This, though, is just another big media lie.
Last week Kaepernick caused outrage when he refused to stand at attention for the playing of our national anthem at the beginning of a game with Green Bay.
Firstly historians say the term “hireling & slave” was meant as a swipe at the British practice of shanghaiing sailors off the high seas and impressing them into service in the British Navy. It apparently had nothing to do with America’s “Peculiar Institution” of chattel slavery.
As usual Black Lies Matter and those who supports it really do not have a leg to stand on since what they want is complete freedom to do what ever they want without recourse.
