    Rushingbrook Children's Choir were singing the National Anthem in Statuary Hall in the US Capitol when they were interrupted by Capitol police. A representative from the choir was told that "certain Capitol police said it might offend someone/cause issues."

    Naive to think this was a "children's performance" rather than an adult-planned one, and the indoctrinated little fundies sure sounded good, I'll grant you that... but:

    A statement from the Capitol Police:

    “Recently somebody posted a video of a children’s choir singing the Star-Spangled Banner in the U.S. Capitol Building and wrongfully claimed we stopped the performance because it ‘might offend someone.’ Here is the truth. Demonstrations and musical performances are not allowed in the U.S. Capitol. Of course, because the singers in this situation were children, our officers were reasonable and allowed the children to finish their beautiful rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner. The Congressional staff member who was accompanying the group knew the rules, yet lied to the officers multiple times about having permission from various offices. The staffer put both the choir and our officers, who were simply doing their jobs, in an awkward and embarrassing position.”

    UDPATE from the US Capitol Police: “Although popup demonstrations and musical performances are not allowed in the U.S. Capitol without the proper approval, due to a miscommunication, the U.S Capitol Police were not aware that the Speaker’s Office had approved this performance. We apologize to the choir for this miscommunication that impacted their beautiful rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner and their visit to Capitol Hill.”

    All in all, pretty STUPID to think that the "Biden Administration" would target a children's choir. Looks like the Speaker of the House sets the ground rules there... and just WHO is the Speaker of the House?

    OBVIOUSLY, dumb ass, if the Capitol police were enforcing a rule it's one they thought came from the Speaker of the House, not the White House.

    Fake news. Biden wouldn’t shoo children away.
    Also, “fundies”? “Magats”? When did this become Reddit?

    The Capitol police, lucky they were not shot. Just think of all the medals they would have gotten had they. Guess they were worried about losing our Republic.
