Oh come on, we all knew this was coming.
It is time to examine the words and the origins of our national anthem, another neo-Confederate symbol https://t.co/DPCGi7PAyL

For example, observing Memorial Day and singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” are uncontroversial patriotic gestures, yet there is no disputing that neo-Confederates developed these rituals. That doesn’t necessarily mean the holiday and the national anthem should be jettisoned, along with Robert. E. Lee statues, only that their historical roots should be recognized and taught.
The anthem’s origin is an 1814 poem, inspired by a battle with Britain at Ft. McHenry. When they re-write #1A, Salon will be banned.

Any argument sane, rational people make against the emotional, reactive Left is considered dumb.
And likely TRUE.
You, too? I was informed by all the smartest people that I was being stupidly paranoid for worrying about a non-existent slippery slope.
