Former Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., offers harsh criticism to pop star Lady Gaga for replacing “home of the brave” with “home for the gays” in a rendition of the National Anthem she gave last week.

Waiving a rainbow flag at a New York City gay pride rally, Lady Gaga, sang, “Oh, say does that star-spangled flag of pride yet wave, o’er the land of the free, and a home for the gays.”

Watch the video here:



West registered his disapproval in a Facebook post Monday.

“Having served in the U.S. Army for 22 years alongside some very brave men and women, I find Lady Gaga's defiling of our National Anthem reprehensible," he wrote.

"This young lady should be taken to Ft. McHenry and given a history lesson as to why Francis Scott Key wrote those words incredible words."

Lady Gaga's timing is particularly poor given that this week marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg and the 237th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, West said.

"She and all those who cheered her abomination should be ashamed and apologize to every serving and retired member of our Armed Services."

West served one term in Congress before losing a close race to now-Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Fla., in November.
