Fox News took a swipe at Canada this morning, after the country changed a word in their national anthem in order to make it gender neutral, thus making it more inclusive for its citizens.
“Liberal Canada passing a bill changing its national anthem,” Steve Doocy said this morning on Fox & Friends.
Doocy went on to note the subtle difference between the old national anthem and the new one, with the sentence, “True patriot love in all thy sons command” being switched to “In all of us command.”
The Fox News host continued to pile on our “liberal” neighbor to the north.
“Oh, ok,” Doocy sarcastically noted. “The bill now heads to the Governor’s desk to become law.”
On a related note, our own national anthem has always been gender neutral, though Doocy might argue that the “land of the free, and the home of the brave” has an inherently masculine sentiment, paired with rockets, bombs and flags. Rockets, after all, are pretty phallic.
Oh, Francis Scott Key, you snowflake you!
