Lady Gag Gag hijacks the National Anthem to promote homosexuality

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kdd6JzJgJGY]

NY Daily News: Not even hip surgery could keep Lady Gaga away from performing at New York’s Gay Pride Parade Kick Off Rally.

In her first public appearance since she was forced to cancel her tour due  to injury, the “Born This Way” singer, 27, joined throngs of fans to celebrate  the start of pride weekend.

The diva, known for her vocal support of the LGBT community, gave a stirring  speech about how much the support of her gay fans has meant to her.

“When I was in high school and grade school and younger, I was considered to  be an outcast and I just couldn’t find my place,” she said. “Where did I fit in?  And I look back on that time and I remember feeling that I was cut from a  different mold. ”

“There was a particular crowd who did accept me,” she continued. “There was a  particular crowd who made room for me at their table, who held me up when I felt I couldn’t, who loved me for exactly who I was. It was you. ”

“You saved me, my friends in the LGBT community, time and time again. And I saw God for the first real time in all of you.”

The New York native, born Stefani Germanotta, praised the last week’s Supreme Court ruling overturning the Defense of Marriage Act and slammed recent homophobia-spurred attacks in the city. “The violence that has taken place towards LGBTs in the past moths is unacceptable here and anywhere,” the singer announced.

“We are not a niche. We are a part, a big giant part of humanity,” Gaga said.  “It’s time for us to be mainstream. I demand the rights! To safe streets!”

Gaga closed her appearance with a version of “The Star-Spangled Banner,”  substituting a lyric to commemorate the ocassion: “Oh say does that star-spangled flag of pride yet wave.”

Gag.

Rules of engagement.

 

Dear Civilians, ‘We know that the current state of affairs in our great nation has many civilians up in arms and excited to join the military.

For those of you who can’t join, you can still lend a hand. Here are a few of the areas where we would like your assistance:

Any Questions?

1. The next time you see any adults talking (or wearing a hat) during the playing of the National Anthem – kick their ass.

2. When you witness, firsthand, someone burning the American Flag in protest – kick their ass.

3. Regardless of the rank they held while they served, pay the highest amount of respect to all veterans. If you see anyone doing otherwise, quietly pull them aside and explain how these veterans fought for the very freedom they bask in every second. Enlighten them on the many sacrifices these veterans made to make this Nation great. Then hold them down while a disabled veteran kicks their ass.

4. If you were never in the military, DO NOT pretend that you were. Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDUs) or Jungle Fatigues, telling others that you used to be ‘Special Forces’.
Collecting GI Joe memorabilia, might have been okay when you were seven years old, now, it will only make you look stupid and get your ass kicked.

5. Next time you come across an *Air Force* member, do not ask them, ‘Do you fly a jet?’ Not everyone in the Air Force is a pilot. Such ignorance deserves an ass-kicking (children are exempt).

6. If you witness someone calling the *US Coast Guard* ‘non-military’, inform them of their mistake – and kick their ass.

7. Next time Old Glory (the US flag) prances by during a parade, get on your damn feet and pay homage to her by placing your hand over your heart. Quietly thank the military member or veteran lucky enough to be carrying her – of course, failure to do either of those could earn you a severe ass-kicking.

9. ‘Your mama wears combat boots’ never made sense to me – stop saying it! If she did, she would most likely be a vet and therefore would kick your ass!

10. ‘Flyboy’ (*Air Force*), ‘Jarhead’ (*Marines*), ‘Grunt’ (*Army*), ‘Squid’ (*Navy*), ‘Puddle Jumpers‘ (*Coast Guard*), etc., are terms of endearment we use describing each other. Unless you are a service member or vet, you have not earned the right to use them. Using them could get your ass kicked..

11. Last, but not least, whether or not you become a member of the military, support our troops and their families. Every Thanksgiving and religious holiday that you enjoy with family and friends, please remember that there are literally thousands of soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen far from home wishing they could be with their families. Thank God for our military and the sacrifices they make every day. Without them, our Country would get it’s ass kicked.

12. ‘It’s the Veteran, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press.’

‘It’s the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech.’

‘It’s the Veteran, not the community organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate.’

‘It’s the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.’

AND ONE MORE:

  1. If you ever see anyone singing the national anthem in Spanish – KICK THEIR ASS

Yup, during the dark days of WWII, people regularly sang the Star Spangled Banner when they went to the movies.  Here’s proof! ~LTG

Obama Disrespects the British National Anthem

A national anthem is a generally patriotic musical composition that evokes and eulogizes the history, traditions and struggles of its people, recognized either by a nation’s government as the official national song, or by convention through use by the people. As such, the national anthem is a symbol for the country.
“The Star Spangled Banner” is the national anthem of the United States. When our national anthem is played, to show our respect, we stop talking, stand up, remove our hat/cap, and place our right hand over our heart. As Wikipedia observes:

“Certain etiquette may be involved in the playing of a country’s anthem. These usually involve military honours, standing up, removing headwear etc. In diplomatic situations the rules may be very formal.”

God Save the Queen” is the de facto national anthem of the United Kingdom and some of its territories.
Last night, at the state banquet for the visiting Obamas, Obama raised a toast to Queen Elizabeth II. Before he finished his toast, the band began playing “God Save the Queen.” Protocol is that everyone stands in silence for “God Save the Queen.” But Obama broke protocol by continuing his toast.
The Queen observed protocol by remaining silent and waited until the band finished before she thanked Obama.
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZCsfyaOGdw&feature=youtu.be]
The person who uploaded this video onto Youtube bristled that this strict observance of protocol is slavish and that the Queen’s silence was “An insult to all Americans.”
What do you think?
