As we find ourselves wanting to hit our head against the walls watching bratty millionaire athletes choose to disrespect the land that provides them the very opportunity to play a sport they love and get RICH off it. This legendary rock band is taking a very different approach to their view. That view is what you call…. R E S P E C T !
…and boy is it such a refreshing relief to hear.
KISS is arguably one of the BEST rock bands in the history of their genre (some would say) and they are currently keeping rock’n roll alive on their “Freedom to Rock” tour. This tour was established on July 4th, very fitting indeed.
It has been said that KISS is one of the most down to earth, and REAL bands in existence in their time period of rock’n’roll. They have made it very clear that the Pledge of Allegiance means more to them than some phony complaint about injustice that some a-hole who I won’t mention is putting on blast. *cough* KAEPERNICK KAEPERNICK KAEPERNICK…
Yes, KISS respects their country and those that sacrifice for the freedoms we all enjoy on a daily basis. Recently, they proved this when they stopped in the middle of their concert to do something very unexpected…
They brought their roadie up on the stage along with other members of the military past and present…then proceeded to lead the ENTIRE arena they were playing in the Pledge of Allegiance! This is not the first time they have done this, but it is the BEST time to be doing it…right now, in Obama’s America.
But..there was a particular reason they chose to do this at this concert.
That reason was San Francisco 49’er, Colin Kaepernick and his refusal to stand during the national anthem.
I’m going to close with a quote from KISS on this stage where they gave everyone there the patriotic goosebumps…because, there would be no better words to end it with.
“You should remember, patriotism is always cool. Loving your country is always cool. Standing up, respecting and honoring our military is always cool. So, to show some respect between pick-throwing, we’re going to put our right hands over our hearts and why don’t we say the Pledge of Allegiance.”
