During the first game of the World Series on Tuesday night, Major League Baseball struck gold by playing a song that’s even more despised by the left than the national anthem.
It was performed with a little help from American servicemen:

The song choice, God Bless America, immediately led to a backlash from the Perpetually Outraged:
There is no reason for God Bless America at the ballpark. You don’t have to take off your hat. You don’t even have to stand.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO REMOVE YOUR HATS FOR GOD BLESS AMERICA.

Ew, they replaced 7th inning stretch Take Me Out to the Ball Game with God Bless America. The American jingoism is unbearable.#WorldSeries

The paranoia is so great in this new era of McCarthyism, the players are standing with their hands over their hearts for God Bless America. #WorldSeries2017

@FOXSportsPR why do you guys air God Bless America when it only sings to Christians and divides? But won’t broadcast anthem protests??

@MLB you really had people remove their hats for god bless America at ws. Get outta here. What an embarrassment.

If we could stop treating “God Bless America” like the National Anthem that would be great. #Dodgers

But pro-American baseball fans then just had to speak up:
Stood in my living room, hat off, hand over my heart during God Bless America… mostly so Trump wouldn’t ask my boss to fire me.

Who is more American, Baseball or Football? No one kneeling during God Bless America during the World Series. Leave politics out of sports!

Singing “God Bless America” should be a requirement at EVERY MLB game during the season. Especially in certain metropolitan areas.

Now, there’s an idea that would drive the anti-American left absolutely crazy!
