America Or Amerika? Banning The National Anthem, Bible & Christianity

We live in an upside down society with completely upside down values. In this sort of an environment, literally anything that you say could get you into serious trouble.
Theoretically, our Constitution is supposed to guarantee the right of free speech for us, but the truth is that free speech has been dead for quite some time now. Those that are in the process of fundamentally transforming our society have made policing speech one of their highest priorities, and their hordes of brainwashed minions are always ready to step in and crack down whenever a potential violation has been detected.
At this point, things have gotten so bad that even children singing the National Anthem is considered to be "offensive"...
An unbelievable case of censorship took place when the esteemed Rushingbrook Children's Choir was silenced by Capitol Police in the middle of singing the National Anthem at the United States Capitol. Despite having prior approval from Congress members, the police deemed their performance as a form of protest, sparking outrage and concern among citizens and lawmakers.
The Rushingbrook Children's Choir had been granted permission to perform in Statuary Hall by South Carolina Representatives Russell Fry, Joe Wilson, and William Timmons, during their well-planned trip to Washington, D.C. The audience and the young singers were bewildered as their rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner was abruptly halted for seemingly baseless reasons.
According to the police, singing the national anthem could be considered offensive or provoke conflict.
Are you kidding me?
We can't have little children singing the National Anthem because it "could be considered offensive or provoke conflict"?
What in the world has happened to this country?
It turns out that the Bible is now considered to be offensive as well.
In fact, the King James Version of the Bible was just banned at the elementary school level and the middle school level by a school district in Utah...
The King James Version of the Bible has been removed from many Davis School District schools after a committee found it contained "vulgarity and violence."
A district review committee recently decided to pull the Bible from all schools other than at the high school level. According to a district spokesperson, the committee actually determined the book "does not contain sensitive material as defined by Utah Code," but still pulled it from certain schools because of age appropriateness.
Utah is supposedly one of the most conservative states in the entire country.
If the Bible is going to get banned there, it is just a matter of time before it is banned in school districts from coast to coast.
But this shouldn't surprise any of us. The Christian faith stands in direct opposition to the new culture that the elite are relentlessly trying to impose on all of us, and so the Christian faith must be suppressed.
Just recently, Billy Hallowell of CBN News posted "Jesus died so you could live" on Facebook, and he was informed by Facebook that his statement violated "our community standards on hate speech"...
"You know, it's interesting because you would assume when you get this alert pop up that says you've violated hate speech paradigms, that you've said something horrible," Hallowell told Charisma News' John Matarazzo in a recent interview. "So, here's what I wrote, and I wrote this on April 2. I think that's important because it was a 40-day period that elapsed from the time that I get this alert. I wrote, 'Jesus died so you could live.'
"That is the message that I wrote. There's no link. It was just 'Jesus died so you could live.' And that is what prompted this response from Facebook. And that response, just so you understand, I'm on my phone, I see it on my phone, I see it on the desktop. At first, I thought maybe it was a mistake. It was a joke. I'm like, 'What is this?' I got this alert. It said your post goes against our community standards on hate speech."
There must have been some mistake, right?
That is what Hallowell thought, and so he asked Facebook for a review.
Unfortunately, even after the review Hallowell's statement was still deemed to be hate speech...
It only took a couple of hours for Facebook to review the post, and it was immediately removed from Hallowell's page.
"I laugh because it's so ridiculous," Hallowell said. "So I get another alert, which says we have removed your post from Facebook. So, this is a new alert now. Then it says, and this is the best part about this, they remove it even from the preview. So, you no longer see the message that was a problem. It says posts unavailable and that they're unable to show the content.
"Then there's a little section on this alert that says what happened. It says your appeal was reviewed and your post does not follow our community standards for hate speech. So, we're back to the hate speech again."
If I cannot even tell you that Jesus died so that you could live, what sort of society are we becoming?
At this stage, we are not too far behind communist China where Christians are literally thrown in prison for what they believe...
The US government on Monday accused Beijing of jailing as many as 10,000 or more people in 2022 in a widening campaign of repression against religious belief meant to bring all theological activity under the Chinese Communist Party's control.
The estimate of those imprisoned in the country ranging "from the low thousands to over 10,000" is one of many accusations contained in the State Department's International Religious Freedom Report, which has been published annually since 1999 and covers nearly 200 countries.
The report's section on China draws on reports by human rights advocacy groups including Freedom House and religious groups like the Church of Almighty God (CAG), as well as public information from the Chinese government.
We have reached a time in history when control over what you say and what you believe is going to become increasingly restrictive.
Our society is rapidly becoming the exact opposite of what our founders intended, and previous generations of Americans would vomit all over the place if they could see what we have done to the nation that they sacrificed so much to give us.
America is being transformed into "Amerika" right in front of our eyes, and none of our lives will ever be the same again.
