"Black national anthem" Replaced National Anthem in Denver ~ WTF

This anti-American Rene Marie sang alternate lyrics to the tune of "The Star-Spangled Banner."

"Black national anthem" causes stir at Hick speech

Denver Post

As Denver dignitaries gathered today for Mayor John Hickenlooper's State of the City address, City Council President Michael Hancock introduced singer Rene Marie to perform the national anthem.

But that's not what she did.

Instead, Marie performed the song "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing," which also is known as the "black national anthem."

When she finished, the proceedings moved forward, and the "Star-Spangled Banner" was never performed.

Councilman Charlie Brown took to local talk radio this afternoon to blast the lack of the nation's anthem at the proceedings.

"There's no replacement for the national anthem," Brown said. "They should have sung it."
"I was surprised," said Hancock, who said he thought Marie should have cleared her plans with the mayor's office in advance. By Tuesday afternoon he had received several telephone calls from citizens and the media. "But you go on with the show."

Hickenlooper said in a statement:

"We were as surprised as anyone that jazz singer René Marie did not sing our national anthem at today's State of the City ceremony, as our staff had requested. As I listened to her sing, I assumed she would eventually move into the traditional Star Spangled Banner. I called her personally this afternoon to understand what happened. She explained her song was an artistic expression of her love for her country. She said she meant no disrespect of any kind and that her song was in no way intended to be a political statement. She apologized for any problems she may have created.
"I'm disappointed that this matter has been a distraction from the great work and significant accomplishments of our City employees over the past year and the many important initiatives on tap for the coming year. "

Wild Thing's comment.........

God help us when people like this Rene Marie does something like this. There are some things that make my blood boil and this is one of them. Rene Marie is UN_American, she is promoting her OWN freaking agenda by her singing the "Black national anthem"!!

If I had been there I would have raised Hell! All it would have taken was one person in the audience to stand up and say … what are you singing?

So was she auditioning for B. Hussein Obama's inauguration party? One has to wonder! She would fit right in with Michelle Obama and her not being proud of America and Rev. Wright and his G-d Damn America!

I have a feeling this is only the tip of the iceberg of CHANGE.

Black racism is rampant. Anybody who thinks otherwise is dumb as a box of rocks. Any white who would of sung a song with race connotations to it in place of the National Anthem would have been immediately fired. The mayor would be falling all over himself in apology, self loathing and taking a supine position.

The Black Liberationists have been lying in wait and building steam for decades.

This brazen act was deliberate - a shot across the bow.

This post will be filed in the sidebar under Traitors to America! She deserves nothing better then that.

She just made a name for herself among the liberal left and ensured the welcome mat will always be out for her if Obama wins the White House.

America is so divided I think we are about to tear apart. Press one for English, separate swimming times for muslim women, Black Liberation theology, "chocolate" cities and now a Black National Anthem.

I wish there was somewhere to go to escape this but there is not.

This act by Rene Marie will be excused as freedom of expression, but if a Confederate flag had been seen in the crowd all hell would be raised.

She didn't want to offend anyone. Thats's BS. She knew exactly what she was doing. Not a political statement... Yes it was.

She is as big a liar as her hero Hussein Obama.

I totally agree. Black racism is PC. No seperaton between state and Muslim "religion" cult OK. God help the white Christian.

Posted by: Bob at July 2, 2008 03:58 PM

Remember, one of the concerns of Black Liberation Theology is a rejection of "middleclassness", and Obama himself has rejected "assimilationism". This is not the fault of whites.

Frankly, I don't care what they do. This sort of thing happens so often now that it would bother me only if I expected something else. People of good will can only accomplish so much, and the failure, if there is one, isn't ours.

A minority which chooses to marginalize itself in a dynamic pluralistic society will only become more and more irrelevant socially and politically. They should be careful what they wish for.

Blacks aren't even the dominant "minority" anymore, Hispanics are, and that spells trouble for policies based in favoritism and affirmative action...expecially affirmative action, which is now being denounced by Asians.

History is going to leave the non-adaptable in the dust.

BobF, yes your right, she might even make it to singing at the White House if Obama wins.

Posted by: Wild Thing at July 2, 2008 05:43 PM

Cheryl, it sure shook me to read this. I never knew anyone would do something like this.
I agree KMA Rene Marie.

Tom, oh my gosh that would have been awesome. If someone would have stook up and help up a Confederate flag.

Posted by: Wild Thing at July 2, 2008 05:48 PM

Mark, yes out right lies and she got away with it and that makes me even more upset.

Posted by: Wild Thing at July 2, 2008 05:50 PM

Bob, that is it too, it sure was a surprise to see this. It is very wrong in so many ways.

Posted by: Wild Thing at July 2, 2008 05:52 PM

Rhod, thanks, it was such a shock to me. I never had heard of this happening before. This was a first for me and it really was insulting to our country.

Your right about the Hispanics they have been and will get even more favoritism due to kissing up to the illegals.

Rene Marie is an oldie trying to look and act young. she brings the old school racism back to reality to assure a new generation of self appointed victems rear their ugly brand of racial whining. there will always be a devide as long as these Dinosaurs exist and preach their hate. they have made their living off of racial indifferance as many blacks have like sharpton, Jackson and wright etc etc.

Barack Obama in a speech said that ""Whatever we once were, we're no longer a Christian nation. At least not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, and a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers,"

Well, I guess that includes a nation of arrogant, disrespectful, un-American, and hated filled black separatist traitors like Rene Marie. Barack Obama should be hammered every place that he goes to explain if this behavior is part of what he thinks America is all about.

In honor of Rene Marie, enjoy the following video.

Kelly it sure sad that they can't get beyond what color their skin is and know it is what a person is inside that is important. The problem is they let the color turn what is inside into some kind of maddness and hate so they end up with their being ugly and mean no matter what skin color they are.

Posted by: Wild Thing at July 2, 2008 11:29 PM

Les thanks for the videos and Obama re-writes history right in his speech and the medai could care less. Pretty pathetic.

I've had enough of this Black Revolution shit. If these fat lipped nappy headed apes don't like it here then the least we can do is to provide them with a fleet of row boats and send them packing back to their homeland. Liberia and Zimbawbe could use their uselessness.

Darth, thanks so much and yesss they want that apparently, all the violence and death all back again with their agenda that are pushing now more then ever because of Obama. sheesh
