The mods here do what they want without explanation!

You don't find that interesting?

How......stupid.

Care to explain a man singing the National Anthem of the United States of America would fit in nicely in Nazi Germany?

Or is it simply you hate the USA?

First, there is no fifth verse. Second you ask why the man sang it…Well the answer is in the video if you aren’t too biased to see it. The answer given by the speaker had at least something to do with the words “in God we Trust” and where that came from.

The gentleman who sang this fourth and last verse of the song likely was moved by the question as the words of the verse include the following:

And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."

Nahh… you liberals have it right, he is just some exhibitionist who likes to show off in front of crazies who love the wrong amerika.

See it works like this. To liberals, loving ones country is jingoistic. Liberals want to be citizens of the world. The notion of national patriotism to them is anathema. The Hitler uber-patriotism is a good analogy to Americans who love their God/Country and guns…

He is not a star! He is a normal American "joe" who sang the part of his national anthem that he likes the best.
Why so much hatred, very few can sing it this well.
WHY?

Because many many people on the left hate this type of display and the idea people love this country.
