Oberlin Students: America Not Worth Being Proud Of

Oberlin Students: America Not Worth Being Proud Of

“we kneel for justice”

Students Kennedy Kline and Ua Hayes recently wrote an essay for the Oberlin Review which drips with the sort of leftism we’ve come to expect from this school.

Anthem Supports False Narrative of Freedom

When our field hockey team stood for the national anthem Saturday, it didn’t feel right. We didn’t feel proud to be standing for America because we didn’t feel that America offers anything worth being proud of. We’d felt this before: feelings of discomfort, confusion, and anger over being pressured to stand tall and strong in a display of unrelenting patriotism. At a certain point, we just couldn’t ignore the feeling anymore.

In August and September 2016, Colin Kaepernick, quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, received an enormous amount of media attention after kneeling during the anthem before one of the 49ers’ football games. Immediately after, people demanded to know: Why did he kneel?

Since that moment, which captured so much of the nation’s attention, countless athletes across the country — at the professional, collegiate, and even high school level — have followed Kaepernick’s example and knelt during the anthem. Last fall, our field hockey team joined those ranks. This weekend, some of us chose to kneel once again.

Simply put, we kneel for justice. When the national anthem first reached American ears, Black people were still enslaved. It is not a song written for us, about us, or in support of us. This “land of the free” was a land of slavery and oppression, and what the American flag symbolizes is no different.

Well, Canada is not that far away. Denounce your citizenship and go live your utopian dream in the Land of Endless Winter.

    Drop them off in a central african country or any of the “stans” with only their sense of entitlement and I bet their minds change real fast.

Remove so if the unworthy American funding from the school and student loans being paid to it! Pay your own way! Then you can complain!

“We didn’t feel proud to be standing for America because we didn’t feel that America offers anything worth being proud of.”

Then I say someone needs to drop these privileged pre-adolescent children and drop them off somewhere they can experience real oppression and misery so they will understand how proud they should be of their privilege.

This is why I think mandatory military service is a good idea. Getting to see what a $hit hole that 70% of the rest of the world really is, opened my eyes quite a bit.

“We didn’t feel proud to be standing for America because we didn’t feel that America offers anything worth being proud of.”

Hey, Rowanda called and said to tell this 2 idiots to check their privilege.

Black leftists have been saying that’s not my flag and all this kind of crap since at least the 1990s. They will not stop until we have a new social justice warrior approved flag and some new SJW approved anthem that sings the praises and triumphs of blacks and the enslavement of whitey.

The ultimate problem only some are beginning to realize now and the vast majority do not yet realize is that liberals/progressives and socialists are NOT about equal treatment for blacks. They are AGAINST treating whites equal to blacks. What they really want is not equality with whites but the subjugation of whites.

As Rush often describes them: “Young skulls full of mush!”

Subjects kneel, Citizens stand.

Are we allowed to question their patriotism yet?
