DUmmie FUnnies 06-18-07 (DUmmie Offended By National Anthem)
DUmmie FUnnies ^ | June 18, 2007 | DUmmies and PJ-Comix

Posted on 06/18/2007 4:38:38 AM PDT by PJ-Comix

Oh the horror! The absolute HORROR! Come with me and watch this tale of woe as a poor widdle DUmmie had his sacred virginal ears exposed to the (GASP!) national anthem. You can read all about this violation of his human rights in this DUmmie THREAD. So, DUmmie, can we NOW question your patriotism? Let us now watch the DUmmie writh in agony at this exposure to the national anthem in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, never before realizing what a fascist Francis Scott Key was, is in the [brackets]:

Was at the car place getting the car serviced, and all of a sudden, the P.A. system broke into a flag saluting bloisterous voice of the National Anthem. I couldn't avoid it any place on the premises, as I was already outside sitting on the curb. Felt like I was in some natzi camp getting ready for the showers. Needless to say, I voiced my opinion on the matter to the management. Told them that I was not at a sporting event, funeral, union meeting, blah blah and asked him when Wagner was scheduled. Told them that the National Anthem blasting at the car dealership was nationalistic and a bit over the top and creepy. What do you think?

[I think you have a strong case for the Hague against that car place for causing a crime against humanity by subjecting your progressive ears to the national anthem.]

We are headed down the slippery slope. I have a feeling that in the coming years, Americans are going to wish they had paid closer attention in History.

[First you hear the national anthem in public and the next thing you know you are forcibly marched into a Wal-Mart detention center. It is indeed a slippery slope.]

I'm with Luis Bunuel: I don't even want to hear it at sporting events. Of course some people would say that this makes me unpatriotic. To which I would reply: bullshit, it just makes me nonjingoistic and nonnationalistic.

[It makes you a nonrational DUmmie like Luis Bunuel.]

I could do without it there too, but then I don't go to sporting events, so I don't have to be bothered with that.

[Good news! Bukowski's doesn't play the national anthem at drinking events.]

Is Houston the only place that has replaced "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" with "God Bless America" (at least the last time I was at a game)? I was floored. I wouldn't stand, as it is not our national anthem. My husband was afraid I was going to get lynched.

[How about if we play the DUmmie anthem... "They're Coming To Take Me Away!"]

I share your creep-itude. I wish more people truly understood the difference between patriotism and nationalism. Or jingoism.

[USA! USA! USA! Thus began the Third American Empire.

Was this a national/regional chain, or a private garage? That would have given me the creeps, too. Good for you for speaking out.

[So you got the creeps every day in school when they played the national anthem?]

I'll bet you're not the only one who didn't like being assaulted by the loud music. Anybody trying to have a conversation or who was making a phone call would be annoyed, I would think.

[FUnnie how you complain about the national anthem but not about loud rap music full of N-words and F-words. That stuff assaults my ears almost daily.]

Smart business people stay out of politics...

[Only a DUmmie could see playing the national anthem as being politically partisan.]

I don't think you should have voiced your complaint. They probably just think you're a jerk, now.

[Along with the thousands of DUFU readers who think the same thing.]

It wasn't a car wash on a military base, was it? You get treated to the tune twice a day, when the flag goes up, and when it comes down--they DO give you a warning, though, so you can run for cover and not get stuck standing and saluting in a parking lot halfway to your car....

[WARNING! WARNING! Your liberal ears are about to be subjected to the national anthem! All DUmmies are advised to enter protective shelters until the cessation of this song!]

I'm tired of war-mongering, and that song is a celebration of a moment in war.

[It celebrates the moment when the war-mongering fascists in Ft. McHenry withstood a British bombardment.]

You're much too late. We reached that tipping point in 1980, to the chants of "USA! USA! USA!" at an Olympic hockey game.

One need not stand for either song. It is just a bit of a tradition to stand for the seventh inning stretch. That said, this nitwit would stand for Take Me Out to the Ballgame, but not God Bless America? That makes a lot of sense.

Key was a pacifist who objected to the war on religious grounds. But he was still patriotic enough to write the Banner.

Gee, I didn't know they played The Star-Spangled Banner in Nazi camps! Live and learn! Wouldn't Wagner have been the more obvious choice, since Hitler loved Wagner? Or maybe that's what he means -- hard to tell sometimes with DUmmies!

Which is the working definition of "unpatriotic".

Yeah maybe I will, later.

I just got a new puter and it came with a ps2 mouse and ps2 keyboard. Plus prior to that I bought a new ps2 keyboard with neat hot keys for my old pc so all my 'wired stuff' is new.

(and when I replace something the wife wants to throw the 'old stuff' in the garbage, even if it still works. she never heard of 'back up')

The New York Yankees do "God Bless America" during every home game. Not exactly a right-wing city there.

the P.A. system broke into a flag saluting bloisterous voice. . . .

"Bloisterous": Would that be sort of a combination of "boisterous" and "blustery"? I don't know, and I'm very flustrated that someone would flount proper etiquette and make an unknown word such an intrical part of his sentence.

Use a repellent spray to keep the natz away.

In your case, also try a respellent spray.

asked him when Wagner was scheduled.

He usually comes in for the ninth inning when the Mets are ahead.

Unless they're playing the Natz, in which case it would not be a save situation.

Of course, that's long after the National Anthem.

"get stuck standing and saluting in a parking lot halfway to your car...."

And so we have a way to slow down the mobility of DUmmies. Wherever we find Dummies - whether one or a multitude - all we need do is play the National Anthem and they all be compelled to stop, stand and salute!

This could be real fun at the next "undocumented Americans" rally!

Uh, this DUmmie doesn't know squat. Reveille is played at flag raising, and Retreat is played at flag lowering. One can see the current list of bugle calls at United States Military Bugle Calls. Nowhere does the National Anthem appear on that list, nor do I ever recall it being a bugle call. Nor should it be. It's the Nation's Anthem, not a call used to announce events.

As I mentioned yesterday, the left is only one step away from creating their own Volksgemeinschaft. Yesterday, we talked about the 'community' aspect of controlling corporations, allowing only those corporations to remain private if they generate goods common good. Another aspect of Volksgemeinschaft was the establishment of Gleichschaltung practices, where all social and cultural life was controlled. The 'ministry' had divisions to control music, theater, literature, radio broadcasting, the press, visual arts, and film. One of the first things they did was ban the Weimar anthem, flag, and anything else that showed nationalism to the Social Democrats (Weimar) party.

Yes, one was right, we need to learn from history... just make sure you have a clear understanding of history..
