The NFL’s playing of the so-called Black national anthem is the latest occasion for liberal commentator Bill Maher’s wrath. The host of HBO’s “Real Time” weekly talk show called the league’s adding of performing of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” in addition to “The Star-Spangled Banner” before last week’s season kickoff game another form of segregation. “Now, maybe we should get rid of our national anthem, but I think we should have one national anthem,” he told his viewers. No one should support the NFL.
“I think when you go down a road where you’re having two different national anthems, colleges sometimes now have … many of them have different graduation ceremonies for black and white, separate dorms — this is what I mean,” Mr. Maher said. "Segregation. You’ve inverted the idea. We’re going back to that under a different name,” he said of the NFL’s pushing the “Black national anthem” in marquee games, also including the Super Bowl. The left is trying to divide the US by race.
