So, NFL Players Can Protest National Anthem But @Delta Passengers Can't Sing to Honor Fallen Soldier. And Flight Attendant LIED About Policy

What about the free speech rights of REAL Americans?

We're told that NFL players have the right to protest the National Anthem, even though they are at work. But why don't those of us who love this country have the right to sing the Anthem? Especially to honor a fallen soldier....

Dr. Gaudry has the full video on her Facebook page. Here's a shorter version:

SAVANNAH, Ga. — A Georgia physician said her plan to honor a fallen soldier by singing the U.S. national anthem aboard a Delta Air Lines plane carrying the soldier’s casket was stopped by a flight attendant who told her it would violate company policy.

Dr. Pamela Gaudry of Savannah said she and fellow passengers were told “to stay quietly in our seats” as an honor guard escorted the casket from the plane Saturday at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. A flight attendant told her that singing “The Star Spangled Banner” would make passengers from other countries uncomfortable, she said.
Gaudry said she was flying Saturday from Philadelphia to Atlanta when the pilot told passengers the plane was carrying the remains of a fallen American soldier. She said she began asking other passengers if they would join her in singing the anthem as the casket was taken off the plane. Many agreed enthusiastically, she said.

“The chief flight attendant came back to my seat and she kneeled down and she said, ‘It is against company policy to do what you’re doing,'” Gaudry said in the video. “And I said, ‘The national anthem? And there’s a soldier onboard?’ And she said, ‘Yes, you cannot sing the national anthem. It is against company policy.'”

Gaudry said she stayed in her seat with her head down — a decision she soon regretted. In her video, she reserved the harshest criticism for herself: “I just did the most uncourageous thing in my life today.”

Anthony Black, a spokesman for Atlanta-based Delta, declined to comment Monday on the specifics on Gaudry’s account.

“There is not a policy about singing the national anthem, period,” Black said.

The body of Army Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright, a special forces soldier who was among four U.S. troops killed in an ambush attack Oct. 4 in Niger, was returned Saturday to Wright’s family in rural southeast Georgia.
On Twitter, Dr. Gaudry is being attacked by the same people who think the NFL players protest is just peachy.  I bet if NFL players wanted to protest onboard a Delta flight the attendant who refused to allow Dr. Gaudry to sing would have cheered them on. It's time to stand up for America and stop letting these politically correct bullies from depriving us of OUR rights!
