Todd Starnes Rants: “Anti-American” Iowa High School Marching Band Must Be “Put Down” For Anthem Protest

Notably masculine Fox News reporter Todd Starnes writes:

Ames High School has the unfortunate distinction of having one of the most un-American marching bands in the nation. More than a dozen members of the band linked arms and walked off the football field Friday night during a performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” An untold number of other band members refused to play their instruments. It was absolutely disgraceful. Sickening. The children who staged the musical insurrection told local reporters they did so to protest all sorts of social maladies.

“How can we be unified if there’s racism, sexism and homophobia in our school,” one of the teenage malcontents told the Des Moines Register. They denied they were disrespecting the flag or the military even though they really were disrespecting the flag and the military. The school district must deal swiftly to put down this anti-American uprising within the marching band. Those students who chose not to play and those who marched off the field should be immediately removed from the roster.

Starnes goes on to demand that the principal be fired, for the band to be disbanded, and for the parents of the protesting students to be publicly shamed.

    “And while you’re at it,” Starnes added, “you can publicly shame me.”

      O.K. I’ll start peeing into containers for that one.

      • Joseph Miceli

        Say….maybe we can all mail our pee to Todd Starnes. I’m sure he’d like to receive 300 containers of strangers urine a day.
        Really, I’m sure of it!

    So much for free speech. Jeez. Who wants to bet a dollar that the protesters were black?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    “The children who staged the musical insurrection told local reporters they did so to protest all sorts of social maladies.”

    GASP!

    It’s almost as if they had an issue and took to direct action to make the point…you know, like dumping tea into a harbor to protest taxes. Wherever would they get the idea that that was ok?? Truly shocking!

    • Gustav2

      The tea that was dumped all those decades ago was Lapsang souchong, clearly un-American!

      • Dazzer

        And Americans have been using the Boston Tea Party as the only recipe they know for brewing a cup of tea ever since 🙂

        • Bad Tom

          I WOULD NOT DRINK a cup of tea brewed with water taken directly from Boston Harbor.

          Well, we really don’t know how to make a good cup of tea.

            Some…well, most.

        • Gustav2

          There were individual tea bags in the 18th century?

          • Nowhereman

            Yeah. They stapled them to their tricorner hats.

      • Lars Littlefield

        I LOVE Lapsang souchong. Soooooo smokey.

        • FAEN

          Give me Earl Grey all day.

          • Lars Littlefield

            Depends on the brand. Not all Earl Grey is the same quality.

          • FAEN

            Yes of course.

          • McSwagg

            LOL, I just brewed a nice mug of Earl Grey.

    • Kruhn

      Hey Toddette! What the kids did was peacefully assemble to petition the government to redress grievances. It’s right there on the United States’ rulebook on top of the Second Amendment you jerk off to every night.

  • Michael R

    I see Todd has started the conversation on police brutality .

  • pch1013

    That anti-American fake pundit should be put down.

    (Pearl-clutching in 4, 3, 2…)

  • dbishop75

    oh my god, Todd – just suck a dick already. jeez

  • Tatonka

    Conservative logic:

    Not baking a cake = a fundamental expression of religious devotion protected by the first amendment.
    Not playing the National Anthem = an anti-American uprising that must swiftly be put down.

    • David Walker

      Because character counts. I deeply admire these kids. 45 proclaimed this week as Character Counts Week. No, srsly. It comes up at the end of this point-by-point Weinstein/45 review.

      I’m not sure why he even speaks in public. He’s one of those idiots who is only famous for being famous. Or infamous in his case. He wrote a book called “They Popped My Hood and Found Gravy on the Dipstick”–about his open heart surgery. Doesn’t look like he learned anything from the experience.

    The irony, being, the eight years when these pearl-clutchers felt that nothing was out of bounds when criticizing an unquestionably validly elected President, an incredibly classy first lady, and a Secretary of State who was confirmed by a Senate vote of 94-2.

    If sports teams across the country had taken a knee or doing other shows of solidarity to protest Benghazi, or Clinton emails, or Michelle Obama going sleeveless, these same people would be screeching their joy 24/7, and figuring out how they could leverage it into publicity for themselves.

    • LaChatSayWha

      They LOVED Tim Tebow when he took a knee.

    Meanwhile, I should hope that the band’s high school Civics teacher(s) are glowing with pride about having instilled in these students an understanding of the Bill of Rights.

    This idea of “un-American” protest being something to be shamed is truly dumb. Reject this narrative no matter where it comes from.

    These students are standing up (or in this case, kneeling) for the Constitution and “liberty and justice for all,” which should be core conservative values. Obviously, they are not.

    The flag and that lousy drinking song appropriated as the national anthem are not even mentioned in the Constitution. And it is the Constitution that elected officials and the military swear an oath to defend, especially against all enemies “foreign and DOMESTIC,” not the fucking superficial trappings of “patriotism” like the flag and the anthem.

    It’s neither the anthem to the flag (at least not the current one) nor the anthem to the US military (no “Halls of Montezuma” or “Shores of Tripoli”, here). It’s perfectly acceptable political protest by people almost all too young to make official petition to the government through party or vote.

        • GayOldLady

          Bye, bye Miss American Pie
          Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
          And good old boys drinking whiskey and rye
          Singing this will be the day that I die, This will be the day that I die

        Is there anything more American than an uprising?

    You know who should be punished for disrespecting the flag?

    People who march under Nazi and Confederate flags. How about Mr Starnes there say a word about those “good people”.

    Starnes in translation: “I have no comprehension of social problems in America because I haven’t experienced any personally. Patriotism is about hollow gestures, rituals, and worship of symbols. Anyone who disagrees with me must have their freedom of speech taken away because freedumb.”

    Fuck every last goddam christian in the country. I’m so fucking sick of this shit!

      Starnes does not impress me as being a Christian. He is some vile exudation from Satan.

    The kids are alright. Todd OTOH…

    • GayOldLady

      Todd is upset because his manhood is challenged by people like you and I who have bigger balls than him.

    Interesting choice of words, “put down.” Yes, by all means take that marching band to the local vet and have them all put down. That will teach them a lesson.

    I think first we should give Mr. Starnes the opportunity to prove just how masculine he is by going 5 rounds with any of the NFL players he’s criticizing. Because back in old-time America it wasn’t if you win or lose but how you play the game.

    • Cuberly Deux

      I don’t think it’d even need to be that. Just to have an intellectual debate, Tahd against players that are deeply and legitimately invested in their cause.

      Tahd would be rendered mute through his incompetence and white nativist bigotry.

  • ByronK

    Today was a bad day to clean up my language.

    Dear Mr. Starns,
    Shut the fuck up you putrid, infection filled boil on the sphincter of humanity. Close that sexdoll hate-hole of yours and exile yourself from humanity before you’re catapulted like a French cow into a into a tank of piranhas. You and your fascist little neutered bully boys are a disgrace to your country and all that is good about the human race. And just because you couldn’t find a woman that was sufficiently vision impaired and suffering from anosmia to fuck you and give birth to little conservative demon babies doesn’t mean you can limp and whine about your perception of other people’s children or their parenting skills. The kids have more spine than you even if your were stuffed and mounted like a demented feral pig.

    Have a shitty day and life,
    Byron

    I thought that Starnes was Pillsbury Doughboy’s evil leavened twin brother.

  • Ken M

    He probably got kicked off at 15 because they didn’t have flag boys back then. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7c5ba7ce73ae78d592363a37a6c29902be5e0f6e69f3a75c585917a0daeb91aa.jpg

      “Put down” = Euthanized?

  • Ken M

    Every time he writes, it’s like a bad season finally. He tries to leave unanswered questions (put down?) to keep his readers on edge. If all he did was write the truth, in basic English, no one would come back for the next season. Of course he can’t write for shit anyway, but, whatever. Can’t be masculine and a good writer I guess. eye roll https://media.giphy.com/media/HCNe5FtsdCfRe/source.gif Merkel would know. 😉

  • canoebum

    People like the canned ham here forget that this nation was founded by a Rebellion. We are Americans. We don’t roll over to authority and ask “may I?”. I hope this protest spreads to high school bands in every state. The days of cops just shooting people on a whim or because “they feared for their lives”, (usually from someone who is running away or handcuffed sitting on the ground) should come to a swift end. Hey, it’s a dangerous job. If you can’t handle it, look for some other work. The fucking cops are out of control. Too many are straight up racists or sadists looking to get their rocks off. They should be disarmed. Only Sergeants and above should carry firearms. Even tasers are too lethal for regular cops. Let them carry pepper spray.

  • Ken M
    • Snarkaholic

      Did he also demand the ousting of the female band members (because they’re blocking his view of the guys)?

  • FelineMama

    What has happened to recycling trash in america? It seems garbage is growing all over!! starns & his Hateful ILK need to be “put down”. They are the problem. My gawd, Racism is alive & well. Help us!!!

  • RayRayinLancLanc

    I guess the second amendment is more important than the first?

  • John Kusters

    He says, “they really were disrespecting the flag and the military” as if there was an obvious connection between kneeling during the anthem and disrespect of the military. Yet, for all the right-wing bleating on this subject, I have yet to see an argument that makes that actual connection. Sad.

    • kevin vincent

      Abd the fact numerous Veterns have outright supported the prostrates and the idea CAME from a veteran Trumpers are so stupud they don’t realize kneeling is generally an act of SUBMISSION and respect

  • Nowhereman

    The only people who are disrespecting the flag and the anthem are people like YOU, Toddy. The same first amendment that gives you the right to say shit like you do also gives the rest of us the right to protest our country when it does wrong. Instead of attacking the messengers, why don’t you sit down with them and listen to the messages? You might just learn something.

  • andrew

    I am not a guy who gets into a lot of fights, those couple of times in the bar were the exception, honest, but I would freakin love to put my fist in Todd Starnes face.

    • Danieruw

      I’m sure many of us would pay to see that, film it, add festive and catchy soundtracks, and post on the internet for all to see.

      • andrew

        Do you think that I would be permitted to see that on the prison computer? LOL.

    • CB

      I agree. I’m not at all violent either, but this man brings out something atavistic in me that could end up with an iron skillet or ball peen hammer suddenly going from the end of my arm to his smug little doughy face.

  • TKW

    What? No stoning or placing them in stocks in the public square?

  • Lizard

    Hey Todd,

    They’re band geeks. They don’t give a fuck what you think.

    Sincerely,
    Eight years of marching band, bitch.

    Do they still make malcontents?

      He’s begging for a lawsuit he is literally ordering targeted and possibly violent harassment of kids? HOw was he allowed to even make that statement abd not get reprimanded… if ANYTHING happens to any of those kids his fat ass is grass

  • kevin vincent

    Does this fat effeminate fucker realize he is basically opening himself into a MASSIVE lawsuit over calling for targeted harassment of KIDS!?

  • Mark_in_MN

    The part of this kind of thing that I really hate (amongst many things I hate about this rhetoric) is the equation of national anthem and flag with the military and the demand that we “respect” the military as if it is the most American thing there could be and the single most central thing to being “American.” What the heck?

  • Franciscan

    “How can we be unified if there’s racism, sexism and homophobia in our school,” one of the teenage malcontents told the Des Moines Register.

    Says Toad Starnes. And how is this young person wrong, you malignant troll?

  • Franciscan

    Also it seems to me that this provocateur has reached the bottom of his rhetorical sack of lies if he’s reduced to stigmatizing a marching band in Iowa, of all places. You need to retire and go off to a Happy Home somewhere off the radar.
