Students Asked to Stop Singing....The National Anthem

  • Last Friday night, students attending Young America's Foundation's High School Leadership Conference were in for quite the shock when they were asked by security to stop singing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
    No, they weren't singing the degrading, vile lyrics of one of President Obama's favorite rap stars, Jay Z—which many may find offensive. They were actually singing the national anthem (on the anniversary of the Korean War, no less), when a security guard shouted at them to stop and said they were being too loud. Who were they bothering, the hundreds of onlookers who enthusiastically cheered them on? Perhaps they insulted the many veterans visiting the memorial with their families that night.
