Matt Gaetz’s Race-Baiting Is In Big-Game Form Before Super Bowl
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) declared Sunday he wasn’t going to look at the Super Bowl over the performing of the “Black National Anthem” earlier than the sport. The music, “Lift Every Voice and Sing” is commonly known as the Black nationwide anthem. The phrases have been penned by NAACP chief James Weldon Johnson in 1900 and set to music by his brother, John Rosamond Johnson. The music was later used for inspiration amongst civil rights activists within the Fifties and ’60s.
Gaetz introduced a supposed dialog together with his spouse, Ginger, on X to spew his racially charged ire.
Wife: Today is the Super Bowl!
Me: We aren’t watching.
Me: They’re desecrating America’s National Anthem by taking part in one thing known as the “Black National Anthem.”
Wife: Does that imply Cardi is performing?
Shortly earlier than kickoff, Grammy winner Andra Day sang “Lift Every Voice and Sing” adopted by Post Malone doing “America the Beautiful.” Reba McEntire then carried out the nationwide anthem, the “Star-Spangled Banner.”
Some folks on Twitter denounced the congressman for placing bigotry within the huge sport.
“So I want to make sure I understand this you’re depriving yourself of something you like, football, because of your racism,” one other commented.
