You guys are accusing Warbler of fetishization of The Star Spangled Banner, but what I want to know is, why is it such a big deal to you that it’s such a big deal to Warbler?

Why do you have to constantly berate him for holding the flag and/or the anthem sacred and believing that others ought to do the same? Let the man have his opinion. Dang.

You make no effort to understand why Warbler feels the way he does, nor lend any weight to a possibility that his position might have merit. You just want to prove him wrong, as though such a thing were possible in a subjective topic like this, by making him explain himself until he can’t think of a strong enough rebuttal.

Thank you, Chyron8472.

You’re welcome.

To be clear, that doesn’t mean I agree (nor do I disagree; again, I really am on the fence). I just can understand where you might be coming from on the topic.

It’s just, in reading a long back and forth on the topic here all at once, I was starting to get a sense of the right’s argument that the left is actually equally as intolerant to opposing view, despite the left’s official claims to the contrary.
