Is it supposed to make you feel patriotic and angry??

It could, actually its a form of satire, which shows our history in America, and the many reasons why its our home, rightly or wrongly, take it or leave it.

Peace In,

From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave."

Is there bad blood brewing between Panthers Cam Newton and 49ers Colin Kaepernick?
