US School Children Told to Stop Singing National Anthem at Lincoln Memorial … They Did Any How!

What, there is no Freedom of Speech at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC?
Thank you to these Patriotic school kids who would not be deterred from knowing what is right … Watch the VIDEO below and know that there is HOPE for the future!
What has this country come to when it is considered a crime and civil disobedience if school children sing the United States National Anthem at the Lincoln Memorial? Congratulation to the school kids for standing their ground and doing the right thing in singing the national anthem in the United States of America and damn where they felt like it.

Not only did the school kids sing, but others visiting the Lincoln Memorial as well
A news flash to the DC idiots who made any such law and the fool police oofficer trying to enforce Fascism … Patriotism is not a demonstration!
A group of high school students attending a conservative leadership conference in Washington, D.C. said they were ordered by a security guard to stop singing the national anthem during a June 25 visit to the Lincoln Memorial.
“They told them to stop singing,” said Evan Gassman, a spokesman for the Young America’s Foundation. “I was taken aback. You wouldn’t expect a display of national patriotism to be censored.”
Talk about one opf the most ignorant, lack of common sense PC nonsense that might have ever been made. The singing of the American National Anthem is considered a demonstration. WHAT!!! It must remain neutral, neutral to what? Is the national anthem at a US President’s memorial going to offend some one?
U.S. Park Police confirmed that the students were in violation of federal law and their impromptu performance constituted a demonstration in an area that must remain “completely content neutral.”
“The area they were standing in and singing is an area that is restricted for this type of activity,” said Sgt. David Schlosser. “The United States Park Police is absolutely content-neutral when it comes to any sort of demonstrations in these areas.”
Get this, in some idiots infinite wisdom it is deemed ok to do what these patriotic school children were doing 25 steps away. UNREAL! KUDOS to the school kids for standing their ground, not moving an inch and continuing to sing.
Schlosser said the students would have been in compliance had they moved approximately 25 steps from where they were standing.
“It’s not the content of their activity – that being the national anthem – it’s the location,” he said. “A couple steps and it would have been no problem whatsoever.”
Instead of doing as they were instructed, Gassman said the students resumed the song – an impromptu form of civil disobedience.
