Michelle Malkin Lashes Out at Liberal Radio Host’s Attack on National Anthem, Says It Displays Left’s ‘Hostility’ Toward ‘Patriotism’
On his radio show, progressive host Bill Press said that he hates our National Anthem, calling it an 'abomination,' and saying that he’s embarrassed every time he hears it. Press mocked the reference to America being the ‘home of the brave,’ saying, “Are we the only ones that are brave on the planet? I mean, all the brave people live here … I mean, that’s just stupid.”
Michelle Malkin reacted to Press’ comments Thursday on Fox and Friends, pointedly saying that she didn’t even realize that he was still on the air. “The last time Bill Press was relevant was when Bill Clinton was in office,” said Malkin.
She continued, saying that this is just a desperate move for attention on Press’ part.
“What’s most telling to me is just the radical, progressive rejection of American exceptionalism. I mean, the musical critique – fine. He can’t sing more than an octave. Whaa! Call the wambulance. But it’s this idea that he rejects that America has exhibited more bravery than other countries on this planet. And I think there is a teachable moment there about how much hostility these people have towards patriotism in this country.” she said.
