Enjoy this before it is banned



Midway through this clip there is a nod to the "Yip Yip Yaphank" revue from which this song originated in the Great War. I explained that here. The bugle is a nod to another Irving Berlin song from that revue.

Oh and there's a future president in the clip.

  1. I was born in 1939, grew up during the 2nd world war and can remember my mother and father reminiscing about Kate Smiths music and voice, according to them she was an icon and greatly appreciated especialy during that time. How sad that we have come down so far in our vaulues and behaviors to ban so much of our greatness.

    1. You can thank the American education system, & it's infection of Demoncratic ignorance, lack of patriotism, & apathy among the youth of this country! The History taught in our schools of today, are devoid of any type of "good sentiments, of Conservatism! Our Teachers/professors, are all Progressive/Socialists, & irresponsibly transmitting their sick Politics, to the pliable minds of our American Youth!

  2. When this present cultural Dark Age succumbs to its own internal self-contradictions, rest assured that this recording will enjoy a new birth of freedom.

    1. Disney is "Woke", they have gay content now, so that gives them a pass by the idiot class.

    2. Disney's banning or destroying its own content all by itself. They're the wokest of the woke!

      I'm glad I can still enjoy that wonderful film "Song of the South," since it's in my library; but I'm sad that no more generations of children will be able to appreciate it or learn the lessons it taught so well.

      It's also a great pity that entire movie franchises, like Star Wars, have been ruined by Disney's insertion of political correctness and SJW themes where they aren't appropriate; but that's their right, they can ruin their own movies if they want to. It's sad, though.

  4. I have an old Victoria and a large collection of 78s. I better hide my record of Kate Smith singing God Bless America.

  5. I do a great imitation of Kate Smith singing God Bless America ... (not that it's important or anything).

  6. “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” George Orwell '1984'

  8. Imagine a day when a black President, when confronted by a Kate Smith type issue, told the SJW reporter to get his head out his ass and just enjoy the song.

  9. It's so wonderful to live in a country where all we have to complain about is petty crap.
    The first two lines say it all:
    God Bless America, land that I love.
    I mean it's the musical metaphor of a Make America Great Again ballcap.
    I honestly think someone with a lot of time and nothing to do went down the rabbit hole to dig up pickaninny heaven to link God and love of country as racist. We all 'know' God is bad (unless you're muslim), and America is horribly evil. Imagine the phoney outrage at the next Trump rally or his 2020 convention when God Bless America is played, the left will scream racists!
    You notice nobody is talking about the governor, lt. governor, and a.g. of Virginia for wearing black face. (Ok, in fairness two wore black face, the third was a rapist). You think this is payback for those charlatans for what they are?
