You can often tell whether someone is conservative or liberal by what they find offensive. For instance, many conservatives were offended by the sexualized Super Bowl halftime show put on by Rihanna, with the bleeped words and crotch-grabbing (there was also a lot of that at the Grammy Awards; is the music industry suffering from an epidemic of Tourette's Syndrome and body lice?)
Meanwhile, the leftist Twitter brigades claim to be offended by Chris Berman remarking that two black quarterbacks were facing off in the Super Bowl on Abe Lincoln’s birthday…
And that Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake didn’t stand up during the singing of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which some call the “Black National Anthem.” And some conservatives were offended that it was sung at all because we are all Americans and it’s divisive to have a “national anthem” for every ethnic group.
My take: I wish they’d remember families are watching and have more wholesome halftime fare. I also don’t care so much what else they sing before the game, as long as they sing the real National Anthem and everyone stands and shows respect for that. As for the people criticizing Kari Lake, if you defended the players’ right to kneel during the real National Anthem, I don’t want to hear your hypocritical whining about Kari Lake or anyone else not standing during the fake National Anthem.
