Anthem Singing Prohibited at Lincoln Memorial
A group of students were taking a monument tour of the nation's capital when they made a spur-of-the-moment decision to sing the national anthem at the Lincoln Memorial, but were told to stop by U.S. Park Police.Full Story

I have read explanations from the Park Police that this was considered a "demonstration" that defiled the introspective silence that they have decided is the only proper way to behave at the Lincoln memorial and their enforcement against *any* demonstrations is "content neutral". This brings to mind the apartment complex that threatened to evict the veteran for hanging a US flag in his window as violation against hanging "banners".
Let's try this again - real slow...
Instead of buying a season pass to an amusement park so they can hang out and while the summer away these kids instead pay out of their own pockets to go to Washington DC, the nation's capitol, to learn about our nation's history. For most of them this is their first time there, and for some it will be their only time there.
They are high school kids, and they feel pride well up as they view a memorial to one of the greatest leaders of the last millennium. They sing our national anthem to express their pride and patriotism.
This is what our nation has degraded to. Political correctness concerns cause the park police to equate high school students singing the national anthem to unruly behavior.
By the way, several paranoid leftist organizations have referred to these kids as "little rule breakers" who are working on behalf of Fox News, which of course if the source of all evil in our nation in their minds because it reports views leftist oppose.
