During the Super Bowl a number of patriotic songs were sung and played. The Star Spangled Banner, America The Beautiful, and Lift Every Voice and Sing – also known as the Black National Anthem. Colorado congresswoman, Lauren Boebert, objected to what she called, “wokeness”, a term some use to derisively describe simply being aware - an awareness that some seem to consider a threat to their position of prominence and entitlement. “America only has one national anthem. Why is the NFL trying to divide us by playing multiple? Do football. Not wokeness” she demanded.
Excellent! Love this line: “ It’s not the right to do what you want. It’s the opportunity and obligation to do what is right.” I knew nothing about Francis Scott Key. And with regard to Boebert—you are far more diplomatic about her than I can ever be. You’ve also done far more for the country, the dialogue, and for Colorado than she will ever do.
Her Stupignorance glows in the dark
