Sometimes you really have to ask yourself, “Is this the USA or the USSR?” In the ultimate irony of ironies, the Obama federal government is literally regulating patriotism.
Middle-schoolers from North Carolina were on a field trip to New York visiting the National September 11 Memorial & Museum and, as you can see in the video below, the patriotic youngsters got a taste of tyranny.
When the Waynesville Middle School students began singing the “Star-Spangled Banner,” they were not allowed to finish as security guards entered the picture to shut down the patriotic act, showing the children just how evil and heartless big government goons can be.
The children were told, unbelievably, that a “permit” was needed to sing the “Star-Spangled Banner” about halfway through the song.
“Basically, they performed approximately half of the national anthem, and they were told by security to cease and desist,” Waynesville Middle School principal Trevor Putnam told ABC affiliate WLOS-TV in Asheville, NC. “And they, of course, complied immediately.”
