Fox Broadcasting Company had a segment where people read the Declaration of Independence right before the kickoff to the Super Bowl. Is this a little bizarre?

That's why I really don't watch much television anymore - the propaganda and indoctrination just turns my stomach.

They said it was a tradition. I never saw it before.

Yeah, I've never heard of that before a game, and I've been watching football since I was a teenager. I know the national anthem is a tradition.

I view it as hypocritical. Exposing the virtues of the nation yet the government has actively tried destroying those chains which bound it sinces it's creation. Look at all the security measures they did this year for terrorism.....

Funny because they wouldn't fight the NFL denying Daniel defense a spot in the ads. Maybe they will remember what the second amendment says after this.

The second amendment says Fox has an obligation to alienate viewers (and thereby threaten profits) by running an ad the NFL deemed too controversial for prime time?

Guns aren't controversial. They are an American pastime. Also, the manufacturer followed all the rules of the nfl. No mentioning guns or showing them. It was bull.

Saying that something isn't controversial doesn't change the fact that some people do indeed find it controversial.

Yeah. I forgot that media brainwashing has made them "controversial" when they never were before except with some fringe groups.

You won't get much traction in civil conversation if you accuse people of being "brainwashed" simply for having a perspective different from yours.

There is a captive audience. I guess...why not send a positive message out?

Id rather see a tribute to a charity/physical person rather than a pamphlet that literally has nothing to do with the system of government we currently have.

Its a sporting event. I just don't see the need for such a segment.
