Allen West Slams Lady Gaga For Calling America "Home for the Gays"

gaganationalanthem.jpg
With last week's Supreme Court decisions on gay marriage, Lady Gaga sensed an opportunity to get some free publicity once again publicly support the gay community by singing the national anthem at a New York City Pride kick-off event. Though, she noticeably changed the line "home of the brave," to "home for the gay."

South Florida Tea Party creature Allen West sensed an opportunity to get some free publicity stand up for liberty and traditional values by slamming Gaga for the lyric chance.

Here's Gaga's rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner":

The former congressmen called the lyric chance "reprehensible" on a post on his Facebook page:

Having served in the US Army for 22 years alongside some very brave men and women, I find Lady Gaga's defiling of our National Anthem reprehensible. We are the land of the free because America has always been the home of the brave from Lexington and Concord to Kandahar. This young lady should be taken to Ft. McHenry and given a history lesson as to why Francis Scott Key wrote those words incredible words. In this week where we remember the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg and the 237th anniversary of our Independence is further evidence of the level of ignorance and disrespect some have for our national character. She and all those who cheered her abomination should be ashamed and apologize to every serving and retired member of our Armed Services. But perhaps I ask too much...

Of course, we're just scratching our heads wondering exactly how Lady Gaga's rendition of the national anthem at a gay pride event even came to Allen West's attention in the first place, but we guess when you're not serving in congress anymore, you've got a lot of free time on your hand to click around on the Interwebs to find things that piss you off.

Wait until he find out what Christina Aguilera did to the national anthem at the Super Bowl that one time. Maybe it's just best if no one tells him about that Lana Del Rey song.

Fuck Lady Gaga... The bitch will lick the gay community's ass but will wear animals that are killed by shoving a metal rod up it's ass to electrocute it to death  That's if it is lucky - many are skinned alive.  She is a fucking hypocrite. And how fucking dare her change the words to the National Anthem?  I am all for equal rights but how about a little class?  Oh wait, Gaga and class? Uh, no.

AND ALSO.............. wait until general west sees the rest of the news and comes to PAULA DEENs story

lady gaga only sang the song once but ms deen has been refering to BLACKs with the N word for 60 years now according to her apology of sorts (and went on to add that ain't nothing because her brother BUBBA has been using the N word for even longer !)

@frankd4    Tell me you have never used a bad word or said something offensive?  Saying the N-word and changing the National Anthem - WTF do they have to do with one another?  Just curious.

Listen bro, if you are gonna dog Paula Deen for the use of that word, please be sure to contact, Lil'Wayne, Jay-Z, Nelly, Eminem, etc etc etc...   Feel me/

"..........if you are gonna dog Paula Deen for the use of that word, please be sure to contact, Lil'Wayne, Jay-Z, Nelly, Eminem........."

the DIFFERENCE between these two are ms deen comes off as a typical southern belle until it is uncovered that she is merely an unsophisticated bigot who finds no compassion in others less fortunate than her ...............and rappers are marketing and promoting an art form that is defined and established for commercial purposes

i myself have trouble telling someone to SHUT UP let alone want to hurt another with words meant to be derrogitory and worse then attempt to hide behind a mask or purity meant only to deceive the national public in a ku kux klan society mentality otherwise

"Saying the N-word and changing the National Anthem - WTF do they have to do with one another?"


in a single word response: RESPECT

BOTH mean a great deal positive and negative to others SO to respect those who these items mean something either literally or symbolically they are BOTH potential statements

@305carolann 

funny but for twenty plus years now people like yourself have said the same things about HOWARD STERN and today what did all that mean ?

if someone OFFENDs you, simply turn them OFF = period

if i have to put up with jackasses like oH MARco !  and bachmann craziness and failin palins "drill baby drill" and then the entire gulf of mexico becomes an oily-swamp then LADY GAGA has a place to be as well

difference is those others are ELELCTed officials and GAGA is an entertainer paid to market and promote HERSELF

animal skins go back to indians and beyond since the caveman so don't just blame GAGA for that

Oh frank, clearly you have never listened to how this so called art refers to women. My point is its all offensive ..,if your going to crucify one please don't discriminate. Lady gaga offends me not because of her stance on gay rights ... It's because she uses it for publicity and at the same time promotes suffering of the most defenseless creatures on the planet. She should never change the words to the national anthem out if RESPECT for our country and them men and women who died for our freedom and she should never parade around in animal skins out of RESPECT for the fact they have no voice and suffer immensely for the coat she puts on her skanky used up, beaten up smelly ass.
