The disrespect to the American flag and anthem has reached a new high, and it needs to come to a stop.
The Left along with Hollywood celebrities have claimed that NFL players have the right to protest the National Anthem. They are claiming that these players are protesting oppression and inequality in our country. The interesting part is that these players are some of the richest men in our country. High schoolers are now following suit.
A group of high school students from Ames High School in Iowa recently made the decision to protest the National Anthem and the American flag by walking off the football field during the “Star Spangled Banner.” These brainwashed students are so poorly educated that they have become trusting of the mainstream media. Now, the mainstream media is praising these students for making a “bold” statement at such a young age.
However, the students who walked off the football field during the National Anthem were not football players. They were members of the high school marching band. Their NFL player idols have motivated them to lose respect for our flag and all that it stands for.

The Right Print reported:
More than a dozen members of the band linked arms and walked off the football field Friday night during a performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” An untold number of other band members refused to play their instruments.
One of the teenage band members explained to the Des Moines Register, “How can we be unified if there’s racism, sexism, and homophobia in our school.”
The teenagers denied all allegations that they were disrespecting the American flag or the United States military. In reality, they were disrespecting both.
One of the protesting students told the newspaper, “It was an expression of my anger and sadness in the direction our country is heading. It’s to express I stand with people who are feeling persecuted or marginalized by the current president or people in power.”
Any kind of protest during the National Anthem is an obvious form of disrespect to the American flag and the United States military. Anyone who doesn’t understand that needs to take a serious look at their beliefs. It’s time for Americans to start respecting our flag, our military, and our country again.
