While crybaby millionaire athletes opt to disrespect the land that provides them the incredible opportunity to play a game for a living by sitting during the National Anthem, legendary rockers KISS are taking a very different approach.
Arguably one of the best rock bands in the history of the genre, KISS is currently on their Freedom to Rock Tour, which they fittingly launched on July 4th, making it a point to show our country and the men and women who are sworn to protect her the respect they so richly deserve.
During one particular concert, the band stopped in the middle of the show and decided to do the Pledge of Allegiance.
Truth Revolt is reporting Currently, Kiss is on their Freedom to Rock tour, which launched on July 4th, and as theyve done before, Kiss put their patriotism and love of our military in the forefront by giving Hiring Our Heroes $150,000 and selecting a current member of the National Guard or Reserve in all 32 cities of the tour to be a roadie for the day to work backstage with the crew and prepare for the evenings concert. In addition, Kiss partnered with Veteran Tickets Foundation which offers discounted tickets to veterans. To top it all off, the band also gave $125,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project.
But it gets better. At a recent stop in Worcester, Massachusetts, this week, Kiss brought its roadie for the day onstage, along with other members of the military past and present, and led the entire arena in the Pledge of Allegiance, something the band has done before. However, this one had a bit of a special message to a particular NFL player a not-so-subtle knock to the recent shenanigans by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, lead singer Paul Stanley said:
You should remember, patriotism is always cool. Loving your country is always cool. Standing up, respecting and honoring our military is always cool. So, to show some respect between pick-throwing, were going to put our right hands over our hearts and why dont we say the Pledge of Allegiance.
What makes this gesture even better is that it isnt the first time KISS has made it clear they love their country and support the troops. In fact, during a tour in 2014 that was geared toward honoring our military, they hired veterans to be roadies.
When you see the self-entitled left-wing brats on the left most of which are millionaires thanks to the country they love to trash sitting for the National Anthem instead of standing up and celebrating the land of opportunity, remember that not everyone in pop culture has gone mad.
There are still awesome, patriotic Americans like KISS, who have an even bigger platform than professional athletes who are here today and gone tomorrow, sticking up for the values and principles that make our nation great.
Kiss was the first concert i went to back at the great western forum Simmons is one of the good one for sure
BLM would almost certainly call Mr. Hendrix a sellout, and an imperialistic baby killer since he served in the US imperialistic military.
I was never a fan of KISS, but I like them.
Anti-Patriots hate their country despite its virtues, and will never work to make it better.
I’ve never been a fan of their music, but God bless Kiss and Allen West.
I have to admit, it sounded a little like Queens version of “God Save The Queen” but it was awesome.
Chaim Witz, and Stanley Eisen are both dyed in the wool American Patriots. They always are doing stuff for the military and have been for many many years.
Do you mean the Sex Pistols?
Uriah Heep! Love it
Gene, a LEGAL immigrant and citizen, LOVES his adopted country.
I’ve always thought KISS was sort of a put-on, and never was wild about their music, but bless ‘em, they’ve soldiered on all these years and are actually doing the right thing.
“what would the BLM say about the late great Jimi Hendrix’ immortal rendition of the Star Spangled Banner?”
At the time I thought it was hideously disrespectful. Nothing has happened to change my mind.
Good to see things like this happening in our country. Hopefully it happens more and more with the continued backlash to decades and decades of corrupt leftist influences.
Kiss wasn’t my favorite band growing up but I do like many of their songs. Good to see them make this positive patriotic statement though.
I was listening to KISS on a portable speaker at a hotel yesterday when I was away :)
Most of the metal/glam rock (Poison, RATT, etc.) were very patriotic because they were middle class white kids like me and my friends.
They didn’t live very religious lives, :), but neither did I and God’ll make the final decision in that game anyway :)
A group from my Yout’ still touring.. WoW!!!
GB these Old Rockers.. To have survived this long..
It takes a stable country to pull that off.
I think it wa 76 too
