Does this surprise anyone?

University of Maryland students who were interviewed by Campus Reform were very supportive of San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand during the national anthem. But those same students did not even know what the lyrics were to the “Star Spangled Banner.”

“I think what he did was great, it’s heroic, it’s sending a message and I feel that’s exactly what this country needs,” said one student.

“I would say it’s pretty heroic,” said another. “I respect people who stand up for what they believe in.”

The video then shows one college student after another failing at recalling the words to the national anthem. “I know the tune, I just don’t know the words.” said one student, apparently representative of the rest.
