The American Freedom Tour kicks off with our National Anthem

O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Published

The American Freedom Tour, a 2-day event featuring some of our nation’s most influential advocates of freedom, began this morning with an a cappella rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.

Vocalist Stephen Quinn Hipsher began with a confidence appropriate for such a treasured hymn:

Say, can you see
By the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed
At the twilight’s last gleaming?

With minimal embellishment, he continued the second verse; attendees remained respectfully quiet:

Whose broad stripes and bright stars
Through the perilous fight
O’er the ramparts we watched,
Were so gallantly, yeah, streaming?

Audience members could hold back no longer, and began singing along with Stephen in the third verse, a verse that portrays our nation enduring even the darkest and most treacherous of nights:

And the rockets’ red glare
The bombs bursting in air
Gave proof through the night
That our flag was still there

And now we’re left with that most poignant of questions, a question that has been a resounding “Yes!” throughout our nation’s history:

“O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?”

Well, does it? And, are we?

The thunderous applause that followed the final words of that song tells us that yes, we are most emphatically the land of the free and the home of the brave, united under the stars and stripes. For the sake of our loved ones, for the sake of this shining city on a hill, the answer must be yes.

May we freshly appreciate, perhaps for some of us rediscover, the freedoms and bravery that have made our nation great.

Words matter. Language matters. Leftists are master manipulators of people. They use language to change people’s beliefs by changing their thoughts and how they think about situation and policies. They can take dangerous riots with fire and explosions and death and call them, “mostly peaceful protests.” Recently Joe Biden’s press secretary, Jen Psaki, used a phrase to describe a group of people that was especially egregious in the way she tries to reframe the view of that group of people. Chris Widener, the founder of PolitiCrossing, as a professional speaker since 1988 and the author of 23 books, helps us take a look at language and how the left uses it against us to turn the minds of American people toward their political ideology.
