DNC Speaker Tells Viewers They May Kneel ‘If They Are Able’ For The National Anthem

A speaker at the Democratic National Convention Monday evening advised viewers to “rise or kneel” for the playing of the National Anthem.

The clip below shows Michael Kapp, the DNC Youth Council Chair, explaining to viewers that a video they are about to feature does not include social distancing due to it being recorded prior to the pandemic.

“Many of the videos and pictures you’re about to see were recorded before COVID, which is why the kids are not social distancing,” the awkward presenter explains.

That’s when he kicks off the event with the playing of the anthem by a group called The Kids From Wisconsin.

“You may rise or kneel if you are able per your preference,” he adds.

Rise For the National Anthem

Some on social media took issue with the assertion that the DNC speaker ‘encouraged’ people to kneel for the anthem.

Adding that option, however, is certainly providing encouragement. Suggesting they do so ‘if they are able’ is also a form of encouragement.

How difficult would it have been to simply say, as has been announced at every political and sporting event for ages now, “Ladies and gentlemen, please rise for the playing of our National Anthem”?

Some viewers called out the DNC for “so much pandering.”

“Every time they say something like this, they send another cascade of voters to team Trump,” another individual wrote.

It Gets Worse

Encouraging our nation’s youth to disrespect the men and women who fought and died for this nation by kneeling during the National Anthem may be the least of our worries coming out of this youth council.

The ‘young skulls full of mush’ as Rush Limbaugh might say, have clearly had their mush molded by the far-left lunatics taking over the Democrat party.

One panelist on the Youth Council called for the outright destruction of capitalism in America.

“We understand that this future that we all want – that we’re all trying to build – really is about the destruction of colonization, white supremacy, and capitalism,” Ashley Nicole McCray stated, pushing for the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez championed Green New Deal.

It’s pretty obvious that the Democrat party’s hatred of America and the foundations of American greatness are widely despised by their youth.

Suggesting they kneel for the anthem or flag only encourages the hatred.

  • We see all the rioting etc. and hear politicians say its a myth. Let me explain that- when they destroying stores and business's in their minds they are destroying the symbols of 'capitalism'. The people behind the scenes that are orchestrating what goes on are the ones that are the greatest threat, the rioters are their minions. The other problem is that these people have been planning this for many years. We talk about it on here but have no organization. Soon they will be coming to the suburbs and attacking people in the middle of the night and running back to the inner city. Where they are protected by the city government. This is how things are going to be as they get bolder. People need to begin preparing.

  • If for no other reason, vote GOP to stop the disrespect for America's:
    • Anthem
    • Fallen military
    • Flag
    • Serving military
    • Veterans

  • These dimoKKKrat communists should play their own Communist National Anthem: "Imagine" by the beatles.

  • Yeah, kneeling while ignorantly wearing the colors of an African tribe in the business of capturing the Africans of other tribes and selling them into slavery. Well, slavery is also what socialism is all about, All the critters of George Orwell's Animal Farm are kept under the thumb of the ruling Marxist pigs. Those who lead BLM have openly admitted to being Marxists. Smiled with zero shame, too. They would as happily burn history books that reveal the millions who have been murdered by Marxists. Worldwide, Marxists have been far more destructive than Nazis.

  • The DNC is very disrespectful. The whole Democratic platform is evil. Pray for our Country. Open the eyes of the unbelieving Lord we pray.

  • When we immigrated into the USA in 1980 legally, one of many questionnaires asked if we were a member of any "hate" group, our status could be revoked at any time if we misstated any facts. We had nothing to fear, but it still scared us. Apparently the squad does not fear anything, but they should. Just shows how bold they are.

  • The democrats again are showing who they really are. They hate America and what it stands for. That is why they have turned socialist. We should stop calling them the democratic party because they aren't. Start calling them what they are, the socialist party. Being socialists they don't care sbout the individual's All thgey care about are numbers, numbers they need to get voted in. They get control again they will mak e changes so they will always be in. You know, like any good communist. Look at all their policy"s they want, medicare for all, no guns the green deal and their dealings with communist china.
