Fascist guards order North Carolina middle school kids to stop singing the national anthem at the 9/11 Memorial in NYC

By BI: Two tone-deaf security guards at the 9/11 Memorial got tough with some wide-eyed middle school kids visiting the city for the first time from their small town Waynesville in North Carolina — because they sang “The Star-Spangled Banner.” “You have to stop. This is considered a public demonstration!” one guard barked at the patriotic teens.


NY Post  The guards insisted the group needed a permit to sing, according to Brown.“Some of the students were very upset and confused. I told the children, ‘This is a place where you need to respect authority even if you don’t understand it,’ ” she said.

The choir was wrapping up a whirlwind field trip to the Big Apple with a somber visit to the 9/11 Memorial on Friday, and had launched into their lilting version of the national anthem when the two guards cut them off. One mom was so infuriated by the way her kid was treated that she posted footage of the truncated tribute online, where it immediately went viral and now has more than 300,000 views.

The kids were so touched by Ground Zero, they asked to honor the site the best way they knew how, according to Brown. “Singing was their way of paying respect,” the teacher said. “They were doing it very reverently.”

A memorial spokeswoman admitted that the situation was mishandled. “The guard did not respond appropriately,” she said. “We are working with our security staff to ensure that this does not happen again with future student performances.”

    Too bad they couldn’t finish the National Anthem. There was a time when there was no way the National Anthem could stopped once it started. ‘Tis another sign of the times.

    “35Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

    Absolutely CRAZY…Never heard that one needs a permit to sing the Star-Spangled Banner in this country. Another clear indication of the dark times in which we are living.

    The poor under paid guards are just taking orders from higher up. Those are the ones to fire.
