Why do we have so many people from the radical left teaching young people at our colleges and universities? A professor at Ithaca College in New York state believes “God Bless America” is a warmongering song.

Ithaca College Professor: ‘God Bless America’ Is A ‘Warmongering’ Song
An Ithaca College professor calls the patriotic song “God Bless America” a “warmongering” song inappropriate for sporting events.
In a September 28 op-ed for the Ithacan, professor Stephen Mosher claimed that “expressions of hyper-patriotism” like the national anthem and songs like Irving Berlin’s God Bless America have “changed our ‘philosophy’ about what it means to be an ‘American’.
Mosher, who teaches “sport as political resistance” and “sport and popular culture” for Ithaca College’s Department of Communication Studies, claims that these songs should be banned from sporting events.
“Sporting events don’t need a national anthem,” he claims, adding that following the events of September 11, hyper-patriotism took hold and the song, “God Bless America,” took its place as an unofficial anthem for Americans.
He claims that many of these expressions and demonstrations “serve to minimize what real patriotism looks like,” pointing out that there is no requirement to hold a hand over your heart during the national anthem.
Everyone on the left wants college to be free. Is this why? So that all young people can be exposed to far left crackpots like this professor?
