Trump is “divisive” for asking Americans to respect the American National Anthem? Where does the Left get called out for this lie? Calling for respect for Flag and Anthem is calling for National unity, not for division. It is the Left who constantly seek to divide us into warring tribes, so they can play identity politics and fan the rage which seems to be all they have to offer these days. There’s a word to describe Americans who won’t stand for their National Anthem: it is Anathema.
