Honestly, this article was tough for me to read. And why wouldn’t it be? It’s an “American” man who writes for a very prominent publication saying that playing “God Bless America” during baseball games is offensive and should be banned.
Imagine my surprise when I found out that this was the Liberal piece of garbage that said shooting an AR-15 gave him PTSD. Well Mr. Kuntzman, you spreading lies, misinformation, and general unpatriotic bull**** the weekend we celebrate our independence is, quite frankly sickening.
Here’s what he had to say on the matter.
It’s time for God to stop blessing America during the seventh-inning stretch.
Welcome to the July 4 holiday weekend — when once again, baseball fans will be assaulted by the saccharine-sweet non-anthem “God Bless America” at stadia all over this great land.
But no matter which home team you root, root, root for, “God Bless America” should be sent permanently to the bench.
Now, don’t get me wrong: When Major League Baseball ordered all teams to play the patriotic jingle after 9/11, I didn’t immediately object. Standing with my fellow fans, as one, and singing a paean to our country provided catharsis, comfort and shared heartache.
But it wasn’t long before heartache became headache. The Yankees still play it at every game, but most teams, like my beloved Mets, play “God Bless America” only on Sundays or holidays. But even that’s too much.
The hate spewing goes on where he says the song offends people.
The song also offends:
* Believers!: Charlie Pillsbury once ran for Congress as a Green Party candidate and one of his issues was his objection to “God Bless America.” “God shows no partiality towards nations,” he said. “God blesses the whole world.”
* Foreigners!: I once went to a Brooklyn Cyclones game with a British guy named James Silver, who smiled when “God Bless America” was being played. “It’s exactly what I expect from Americans,” he said. “The self-righteousness, the patriotism. It’s always nice to see my opinions confirmed.”
Of course Kuntzman uses a quote from someone from another country to get his idiotic point across. When we go to Great Britain, do we WANT to hear their national anthem? No. It’s not ours. It’s the same reason we want Americans to win gold medals in the Olympics, we want to hear ours because we won. We want to hear God Bless America because it instill national pride not because it’s offensive you moron.
So this July 4, join me at the Church of Baseball by not rising and not doffing your cap for a song that is not the national anthem of a nation that is not uniquely blessed by some deity that doesn’t exist anyway.
If you want to thank God for blessing America, you can do it on Sunday in the other church.
Here’s a thought, leave the country then. Stop watching baseball then. If you’re that thin skinned that you cannot sit through a 2-3 minute song, regardless of what it means, then you need to re-evaluate your life and purpose here. This PC culture and togetherness needs to be squelched immediately. This man has no idea how the real world works where suicide bombers murder innocent civilians. Wake up Mr. Kuntzman, soon you and your Liberal cohorts will make it so that we have no national pride left and all and we’ll be overrun. America is not Rome, but you and the left are trying to make it fall just the same.
I am calling for the IMMEDIATE and JUST firing of this “writer.” I put that in quotes as I believe this man is not only un-American, but a hack and shill looking for a quick buck and shock value. Mr. Kuntzman knows nothing about America, its people, or what the real world is like.
If you support this, share this post with everyone you know and let’s get a petition going! This man must be FIRED.
