Some proof through the night that OUR Flag was still there..

YES, it was still there & is still here today Francis Scott Key!

But Sir, your statue in San Francisco’s Bay Bridge Park was shamefully toppled 2 weeks ago.

San Francisco is a cesspool of liberal failure.


Nah, it's a pretty cool city.

Better than anything we have in South Carolina besides Charleston. By quite a large margin.


What a shame. It's a shame that the statue was toppled,

and it's a shame that we have an ignorant generation that has been brainwashed with an anti-American agenda.

Once you get to the 4th stanza—one nobody sings anymore—you find one of Kaepernick’s chief complaints about the national anthem and Francis Scott Key:



No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.



There’s also an unofficial fifth verse, that Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote in the 1860’s, that specifically refers to the Confederacy as traitors.

^ This 3rd or 4th verse refers to British Sailors being enslaved..

Rather than Cochrane’s Colonial Marines, who fought at Fort McHenry?

I believe the original song title was "The Defence of Fort
