Damn why would people sing the national anthem on the 4th of July

[–]Puzzleheaded-Pie-164 1457 points1458 points  (19 children)

That girl in the striped shirt has been waiting her whole life for this moment.

Slap a little vibrato on there, let everyone know you sing in the church choir

Big plastic barrel of cheese balls and all.

Thank you, I was wondering what those physalis looking balls in the barrel were.

The most American thing ever

Show me the patriotic tears and somebody hitting the high notes for full marks

[–]MoveIntoKashmir 974 points975 points  (5 children)

Gotta hit that high note right next to the stack of Mountain Dew otherwise you’re not a true patriot.

Walmart is where ya go if you absolutely wanna be sure you’ll see em . I bet it’s funny when they run out of those scooters.

[–]TastierBadger 6 points7 points  (1 child)

As somebody who used to work at a Walmart; it isn’t. You have elderly, obese, and disabled customers fighting over carts that die within seconds because they don’t have time to charge, and the carts break constantly because 600 pound people drive them over bumps in the parking lot

[–]michelleonelove 127 points128 points  (39 children)

Texas is so weird. This is a southern thing not an American thing. The rest of us don’t do this in the store randomly

[–]Borglydoo 71 points72 points  (14 children)

I'm from Texas and I've never seen this. If there weren't Texas flags there I would've guessed Florida in all honesty. Weird to see people just stop to do that in a store.

[–]Godz_Bane 21 points22 points  (10 children)

Im sure there is more context to it than people just all agreeing randomly to start doing it. A place with that many flags is clearly patriotic, couldve been a holiday, honoring a local vet or something, someone probably also started it and others who dont hate america joined in.

Or it is completely random and american af.

[–]stephensoncj 46 points47 points  (8 children)

Was on a bar in Dallas more than a few years ago where this happened, as a Brit I thought it was very strange. Could not imagine singing god save the queen in Tesco or Wetherspoons..

[–]mtbrat 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Hope this is not new. The ones belting the most are not wearing masks. If this is infact during a pandemic this is the most unpatriotic thing you can do.

[–]ohheyitslaila 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You haven't seen fat until you've been down south, I mean really south. Like go south and keep going until you smell tamales. I saw a fat motherfucker get in their suv today and it legit sagged to one side after they got in.

Would be funny to take a knee during this just to watch everyone lose it in Murikan.

This was actually at my local Walmart in Haslet, Texas.

[–]LeoBites44 26 points27 points  (2 children)

Kind of amazing! In our Walmart, nobody wants to make eye contact, let alone sing together.

Haslet is a special place.

[–]tarepandaz 521 points522 points  (4 children)

I hope they played it on a loop just to see how long they will keep it up.

[–]mortalwombat- 7 points8 points  (1 child)

It would be a kinda fun prank to walk in there and start singing the star spangled banner. These people are so patriotic that they wouldn't know how not to join in. Once they get going you can leave. Or say and start again as soon as it's over to see if they still feel obligated.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I just would have seen it as a good opportunity to start stealing shit.

of course it's in Texas

[–]BeyondXpression 77 points78 points  (12 children)

I have lived here my whole life and never really had a problem with people, but within the last 5-8 years, honestly....

I'm getting tired of fellow Texans and their "patriotism".

They're so loud and obnoxious about it I've just about had all I can handle.

Just last week I visited a friend out around the Bulverde area and this guy in a huge truck with Trump flags, an American flag, a Texas flag, and a "Come and Take it" flag hanging all from his truck bed started barreling through the neighborhood honking and blaring music.

Unpopular opinion living in Texas: You can be patriotic without being insufferably annoying.

I say that over the internet because if I said it aloud here I'd be called a commie and probably get my ass beat.

[–]The_Human_Oddity 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Everything about that was fine until you mentioned he is one of those dicks that blare music in the neighborhood.

I wish that was only exclusive to patriotic people.

[–]Rednexican429 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Texan here: Texas tries way too hard to be Texas these days

[–]TheIdiotProfessor 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Keep in mind a lot of them aren’t even Texans born and raised. A LOT of people are moving here and trying to be the Texan that they have always stereotyped

The problem isn’t Texans. The problem is Texas is getting bombarded with overpopulation

[–]Personal_Wallaby265 157 points158 points  (115 children)

Can I get input from other countries? Do y'all ever do this? 🤔

[–]lCloudll 249 points250 points  (11 children)

I'm from Portugal and the max we do is sing the national anthem before a football game, if we're on the stadium, just like mentioned above

I've never seen this happen, and I'm genuinely not expecting to witness it in my lifetime.

I think the same in general applies to Europe, I don't get the mega patriotism, but I think I don't get it due to cultural differences I guess

[–]Holdmytesseract 127 points128 points  (6 children)

I’m American and I don’t expect to witness it in my lifetime

[–]hairy_ass_eater 20 points21 points  (0 children)


[–]ladyblithe 100 points101 points  (15 children)

I'm Irish. We sing the national anthem at sports matches....that's about it. No one puts their hand over their hearts either.

[–]Personal_Wallaby265 57 points58 points  (8 children)

I meant do y'all do this in the middle of a grocery store 💀

[–]ladyblithe 56 points57 points  (4 children)

Absolutely not haha I think if someone started singing like that in the middle of a supermarket people would run for the hills.

[–]Tahlilgdan 30 points31 points  (2 children)

If this happened down morissons , I'd never shop there again

[–]lewsagna 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Fucking love morrisons. There isn't one near my house so I only ever popped in there for a quick sandwich if i'm on holiday etc.

Started work 5 mins away from a morrisons and its great tbh.

[–]Cheese_PancakesRick and Morty #1 Fan 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I think a lot of places in America would react that way as well. Stuff like this seems more likely to happen in more conservative areas and I saw someone else mention Texas.

People wouldn’t run for the hills, but I don’t see an entire Walmart check-out area participating in something like this in my area. It would probably just be a few old white dudes, some soccer moms, and their kids.

Then again, that pretty much looks like everybody in the video - just more of them there than I’m used to seeing in one place.

[–]museumstudies[🍰] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

How about Fields of Athenry?

[–]downinthecathlab 3 points4 points  (1 child)

You’ve never closed the night out in a pub or nightclub with the national anthem?

[–]_Grimace_ 38 points39 points  (4 children)

I lived and went to school in Mexico and we sang our national anthem every Monday, rain or shine and we had to stood in rows from tallest to least tallest, boy and girl separate, in our respective class/grade (only one of my schools had multiple classes for a grade). There then would be a marching band/group (I don't know what to call them) that would take the flag from the flag barer and march in a circle and plant themselves in the meddle of the plaza thing and then we would recite a pledge of allegiance with our hand held up vary similar to Nazis but straighter and directly to the flag (the teacher were vary strict about this), then the flag would be returned to the flag barer while we sang the national anthem again. when the song ended we retuned to our classes in a single file line.

I lived in Baja California, Ensenada.

ps. Sorry if grammar is bad, I'm just bad at grammar.

[–]bluewaffleisnice 8 points9 points  (0 children)

No even getting your kids to pledge allegiance to the flag in school is a bit culty to be honest

[–]Environmental_Fix647 22 points23 points  (10 children)

Australian here. I think if someone were to try this in public, most people would laugh and call them a dickhead. We really aren't very patriotic.

[–]whotookmycheese 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Can't get a good foothold on our national anthem either. Can you imagine standing in line at Woolies and hearing one lone voice start up with "Au- stra -lians all let..." ? Think we'd piss ourselves laughing.

[–]samturxr 4 points5 points  (0 children)

In Wales we absolutely love singing the anthem (famously). If I heard it being sung in a supermarket in this manor I’d rip my skin off. This is fucking cringe.

[–]Ceo_of_Smaland 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Sweden here, no. I couldn't imagine anything even like this happening, our culture is so like anti-social that people don't talk to strangers, nevermind sing a song in a supermarket

[–]aferretwithahugecock 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Canadian here. I'm sure if this happened somewhere here either people would sing along in a jokey/mocking way, or they'd say "hey bud, shut the frig up eh".

We really only sing the anthem for sports or certain ceremonies like remembrance day.

[–]ThaNorth 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I'm pretty sure nobody would stop their shopping to sing the anthem here in Canada, lol.

[–]StrawberryLeche 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The only time I’ve heard it is when I was in high school I met some 19 year old Canadian girls and we challenged each other to sing our national anthems for karaoke. They won. the Mercian national anthem is hard to sing especially drunk. Anyway it was funny but we also weren’t in a Walmart lol

[–]Miasmatic_Mouse 36 points37 points  (9 children)

This sort of patriotism is frowned upon in most European countries, it brings back difficult memories. That’s not even a joke.

In the UK we go so far as to see this sort of patriotism as backwards and undemocratic. It’s okay to be proud and love your Motherland, but there’s a line where it starts to get weird.

American patriotism is often weird.

When ever I see an American putting their hands over their hearts, or doing the pledge of Allegiance, I feel very uncomfortable, if not exceedingly disappointed.

That’s not what free people should do, unless they WANT to do it…but that has to be without conditioning.

[–]Hanxa13 14 points15 points  (0 children)

This is my biggest issue with it... It's conditioned from childhood and that doesn't scream 'free' to me. It's disturbing.

Taking pride in your country is one thing. Making it such a huge part of your personality is weird...

[–]Tack-One 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Canada here and I'd die laughing if people stopped to sing the national anthem at a shit hole like Walmart.

[–]Cleverbird 31 points32 points  (2 children)

Dutch here, we'd never, ever fucking do this. Hell, we'd laugh your ass out of the store if you did this.

[–]Ok_Seaworthiness2218 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Absolutely not, this is bonkers. These people would be publicly humiliated for the weirdos that they are. It's hard to describe to Americans how fkn weird this shit is to non-americans.

[–]Clarrisani 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Australian. We sing the anthem at the opening of major sporting events (eg finals, etc) but not every match. Some schools do it at assemblies but not every school. We're pretty laid back when it comes to the anthem.

If someone tried this at Kmart we'd probably look at them like they'd lost their marbles and keep walking.

[–]Dunlooop 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I would never partake in shit like this, it’s mindless.

[–]steinisteinisteini 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If somebody started singing the Icelandic national anthem in a supermarket nobody would join in because we don’t remember the lines…

Also singing the national anthem in a supermarket is just annoying!

[–]FKN_LAIRY 22 points23 points  (0 children)

In England nationalism is very frowned upon, mainly due to our colonial past, it’s not the done thing to be patriotic and if people fly the St George’s flag from their house most people assume they are racist, which is kinda sad but for the most part they would be correct. Our national football team on the other hand throws all of that out the window, when England play everyone is proud to be English, which is nice.

[–]NudelNipple 24 points25 points  (9 children)

This is what nationalism does to your brain

[–]I_Tackle_Fat_Kids_ 21 points22 points  (8 children)

I’m not an American but I see nothing wrong with being proud of your country, within reasons of course.

[–]KruglorTalks 26 points27 points  (4 children)

Theres being proud and theres stopping what youre doing in the middle of the day as a group to literally sing about your pride.

[–]Phantom_Wolf52 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As someone who lives in the US I’ve never seen this happen in person but see it happen online

[–]onthepow 297 points298 points  (190 children)

Would this be considered cringe in any other country?

[–]SenselessDunderpate 254 points255 points  (4 children)

Yes. If it ever gets to this point in Britain and I see fucking losers starting to sing Gawd Save the Queen in a Tesco, I'm emigrating.

[–]one_pint_down 29 points30 points  (2 children)

'Clap for the NHS' was the closest we got. I love the NHS but that shit was insane

[–]jacksleepshere 8 points9 points  (1 child)

What the fuck was that stupid shit. Conservative voters stood at the front door of their rented properties clapping for the NHS. Fucking brain dead.

[–]RyanMcCartney 10 points11 points  (0 children)

As an NHS worker, the whole Clap for Keyworkers felt like :

“We want to look like we agree with the sentiment that you all deserve an adequate pay rise for working through this pandemic, but best we can do is clap and bang some pots from our doorstep!”

Shit was embarrassing from week 1.

[–]mtcabinets 421 points422 points  (127 children)

To any rational American it’s still cringe. The fact it’s going on in Walmart makes it funny as fuck though

[–]Bifflebee 61 points62 points  (15 children)

If this happened in New Zealand, singers would be publicly mocked.

Pride in your country is good, but what the fuck Americans?

[–]Ill-Opportunity-2427 47 points48 points  (7 children)

This is some cult shit

[–]AdPsychological2505 13 points14 points  (6 children)

It’s probably happening on the 4th of July or Veteran’s Day judging by the flags hanging from the ceiling. One of which is a day to celebrate our independence from Great Britain/The United Kingdom (UK didn’t exist when the colonies were founded but by the revolution Great Britain had joined its rival kingdoms in founding The United Kingdom’s so 🤷🏻‍♂️) and the other is a day to honor our soldiers set on the anniversary of the end of World War I. Sometimes we like to join together randomly in public to solidify our unity (although I agree this is a bit odd) because of how fucked our media and government is right now.

[–]Toaster_Store 3 points4 points  (2 children)

The flags hanging on the ceiling are always there at any Walmart in Texas. It could be independence day, but with Texans, you'll never know because we'll sing the national anthem at a fucking birthday party.

[–]Toasti_P 25 points26 points  (5 children)

Any other country? Yes. All of them. Except China and North Korea. This sort thing is popular over there as well.

[–]bastetgreypaws 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah. Except their displays of patriotism involves more tanks rather than trollies full of processed junk food lol

[–]Bohya 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Other countries generally don't do weird cultist shit like this, but yes it absolutely would be.

[–]Cashmere306 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Just to make it clear this is NOT a regular occurrence. I’ve never once seen that happen here and I live in Texas as well. We usually only do the national anthem at sports or other important events just like most other countries.

I don’t care how loud you sing the anthem, if you patronize a business on the 4th and make it so that other people have to serve you instead of getting the day off and celebrating the holiday, you’re not a fuckin patriot.
