Shouting during the anthem disrespectful

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion I went to the Union/RPI hockey game at Union College recently. As is always the case, the event starts with the performance of the national anthem. The anthem begins “Oh say can you…” at which point, Union students and fans shout “U”, drowning out the lyrics on either side.Later in the anthem, RPI students and fans respond by shouting “red glare” (a reference to their teams’ colors) again, seriously disrupting the anthem.Well, they’re disrespecting our country, our flag and our national anthem. Wouldn’t you just love it if some college president said: “Get the sons ‘o’ b—-s out of the rink now. They’re expelled: Expelled.”I would report these “disrespectors” to President Trump, but he probably wouldn’t be too concerned because they’re almost entirely white.Bill MacTiernanSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positionsSchenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departmentsMotorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashSchenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, musicSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcylast_img
