Kevin McCarthy Invites Children-s Choir to Capitol After They Were Stopped Singing National Anthem

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy invited the Rushingbrook Children’s Choir to sing at the Capitol after they were stopped singing the National Anthem at the U.S. Capitol on Friday.

McCarthy condemned the interruption of the choir and declared it “unacceptable.”

The Daily Fetched first reported on the incident on Friday, where the Rushingbrook Children’s Choir was stopped by police while singing the National Anthem in Statuary Hall at the United States Capitol because it was deemed a “prohibited form of protest.”

The children’s choir had received prior approval to sing a short set of patriotic songs inside the historic Statuary Hall, including the National Anthem.

However, the choir was stopped by Capitol Police while singing The Star-Spangled Banner.

The abrupt interruption stunned the young performers and the choir director.

The Capitol Police refused to allow the children to finish the song because singing the national anthem at the nation’s Capitol is considered a form of protest.

Watch

Mr. David Rasbach, Rushingbrook Children’s Choir Director, told The Gateway Pundit what happened.

“I said, what’s the problem? And she said we can’t let you continue. I said, why not? And she said, this is considered a demonstration, and we don’t allow demonstrations inside the Capitol,” Rasbach said.

“This is not a demonstration. This is simply a group of children singing the National anthem.” And she said, “Well, that’s considered a demonstration. We can’t allow you to continue.” And I said you’re telling me that a group of children can’t sing the National Anthem in their own Capitol? And she said, “That’s right.”

“And then she said something, it might offend, or it might be offensive to some.”

Rasbach said the Capitol should invite the kids and let them sing.

“I think they should invite us back at their expense and have let us sing,” Rasbach said.

McCarthy took to social media to express anger over the choir being stopped mid-performace at the Capitol.

“Just learned kids were interrupted while singing our National Anthem at the Capitol. Unacceptable.”

McCarthy said his office welcomed the children’s choir, emphasizing that the U.S. Capitol is back open particularly to school groups, stating, “These children were welcomed by my office because your Capitol is back open, particularly for school groups.”

So, this is Kevin’s big contribution to Liberty. He should explain to these kids that he sold their future to the Marxists in the DNC.

Why can’t we get the name of the fascist/marxist that gave the order to stop singing the National Anthem?
some accountability?
maybe a reporter could do their job and find out.

Don’t sing no matter who invites you back. The building is accursed.
