Another example of a war-related song being barred from a July 4th program. No wonder our enemies can’t figure us out: our elites are too sensitive to listen to songs that mention war at patriotic concerts, while at the same time our soldiers pitilessly rain down death and destruction on the enemy, with the enthusiastic support of virtually all of our people. We’re an odd country. By the way, the same mentality that bars mention of war from 4th of July concerts accounts for the fact that we never sing “Onward Christian Soldiers” in church anymore.
