There are many countries that would send you to prison or worse for disrespecting the National Anthem or flag of the country, and where this kind of conduct would be regarded as treason.
This died in the wool leftist should be jolly glad that in the USA she has the freedom to behave in this disrespectful way to the nation she is part of.
Generally in Britain, the National Anthem is now only played at state occasions, when the Queen is present, or at international sporting events where a British team is involved as opposed to a Scottish, Welsh or Northern Irish team where other anthems are played.
