Kari Lake Steals Show at Super Bowl as Photo of Her During ‘Black Nat’l Anthem’ Goes Viral

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Kari Lake is such a beloved and popular national pundit that photos of her doing nothing went viral on Sunday as she sat in her stadium seat during the opening show for the 2023 Superbowl, which was played in Arizona.

Media reports show Lake, a Republican candidate for governor of Arizona,  just sitting quietly as people around her stood, and that was enough for the public to take notice and spread the information around on social media giving Lake a whole lot of attention.

Lake was fresh off of the campaign trail in Iowa, where she was the first Republican in 2023 to speak to huge crowds of voters, who turned out to hear the Populist Firebrand talk about her campaign for governor and the disastrous results of that election which have landed her in the national spotlight for what much of the public sees as obvious voter fraud- in the victory of sitting Governor, Democrat Katie Hobbs.

However,  while in Iowa, Lake told crowds that the fight isn’t finished yet, and she chose to speak in Iowa as she waits for her legal challenges to Hobbs to work their way through the courts.

Iowa is historically the first primary to be held during a Presidential campaign, so the choice to speak to the people was very noteworthy.

Lake had an awesome turnout in Iowa, with over-packed rooms, and then she headed to the SuperBowl, where the public displayed their interest in her, as she remained in her seat during the divisive ‘Black National Anthem,” which is a tactic used by social justice warriors to diving the unity in the United States.

Michael Austin reported on the story for the Western Journal with some more details about Lake and the divisive anthem:

In 2020, the so-called black national anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” was first introduced as a newfound staple to be sung before every NFL game.

The song, a Christian hymn honoring the birthday of Republican President Abraham Lincoln, certainly has noble origins. But the reason for its inclusion before pro football games was anything but noble.

According to Time, the NFL introduced the song as a “black” national anthem in “an effort to reinforce the league’s professed newfound alignment with Black Lives Matter.”

The “black national anthem” was added as a concession to those who felt the “racist” origins of “The Star-Spangled Banner” didn’t represent them.

Regardless of what song they chose, designating something as a “national anthem” representative of only one racial group is nothing but divisive.

That’s why conservative firebrand Kari Lake chose to sit as it rang out at Super Bowl LVII on Sunday in Glendale, Arizona.

“The @NFL played two different ‘National Anthems’ tonight. Someone just sent me a photo of @KariLake sitting during the first one,” conservative journalist Benny Johnson tweeted during the championship game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs.

When asked by The Western Journal, Lake confirmed she had indeed chosen to sit as the song was sung.

The WJ report went on:

The account of Lake’s campaign explained why she chose to sit via Twitter.

“Our girl is against the idea of a ‘black National Anthem’ for the same reason she’s against a ‘white National Anthem,’” the account tweeted.

The pouty left-leaning Independent had a very negative reaction to Lake’s stand, reporting:

Kari Lake is facing backlash for sitting through a popular civil rights hymn at the Super Bowl.

Before Sunday’s Super Bowl liftoff, actor Sheryl Lee Ralph performed “Lift Every Voice and Sing”, a song that has been a part of the NFL since the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests and considered to be the Black national anthem.

Photos on social media showed Ms Lake – the Republican candidate who lost the Arizona Senate race last November – sitting through the song, something for which Twitter users criticised her.

The backlash came during a Super Bowl contest that saw the Philadelphia Eagles win against the Kansas City Chiefs at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

As photos of Ms Lake sitting went viral on social media, one user said she was a “pseudo-patriot”.

“She subscribes to the idea of ‘one Nation, under God.’”

However, not all reaction was negative about Lake’s patriotic sense of the unity of the country:

Our girl is against the idea of a “black National Anthem” for the same reason she’s against a “white National Anthem”

No doubt Lake will face accusations of “racism” and “bigotry” from the left in response to her decision.

Those same “tolerant” people who would criticize her also want to divide us by race.

They want each of us to sing a different national anthem based on nothing more than the color of our skin.

This is because the left continues to push the notion that America’s history is tainted by “racism” and “whiteness,” so “The Star-Spangled Banner” can only represent white people.

But that’s not true. America has created more freedoms for more people than any other nation on Earth. This nation has one anthem, and it represents each and every one of us.

Thankfully, Kari Lake was willing to stand up for that ideal at a time when too few of us are willing to stand up for anything, the Western Journal concluded.
