‘U-S-A’ Chants Take Over The Subway System (Or Not) After Bin Laden’s Death

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – New Yorkers, who at this point are used to various shenanigans on the subways, seem to be divided on the “U-S-A, U-S-A” chant.

Here’s the scene that played out beneath Times Square the night Osama bin Laden got killed.

The best we can figure out is that when the chant is organic, it seems to take off.

When somebody deliberately tries to get the crowd going, the result is the usual indifference, and scorn.


Shut up on the subway, or U-S-A, U-S-A? Sound off in our comments section.

    What a waste when are citizens of this country going to wake up; if those cheering put that much energy into bettering this country from the inside instead of worrying about the first scape goat placed in front of them as public enemy number one this country wouldn’t be in the shape its in. remember terrorism wasn’t invented by the middle east; funny though the usa since inception has terrorized its own as well as world at large since its inception first through its natives then every other non-white. and i dont hear anybody chanting in droves about that; yet it’s always the guilty pointing the finger of blame. your fools if you think that one man’s death is going to change the face of terrorism when it’s sole purpose is to scare you into whatever they want of you and like good sheeple you follow; mission accomplished u.s.a gov’t

      Lenin had a term for people who supported communists at the expense of their own country. He called them “useful idiots.” Think about it.

    And miss important subway announcements? If you see a suspicious package or activity, don’t keep it to yourself. Tell….

    Why not try to get a chant going? So many times we see on the news when an American is killed in a foreign country how the people chant like it is the best thing that has happened in a long time. Why not give it back in spades?

      Because this isn’t a football game, that’s why. Citizens like you and me have had to pay the price for those in power that insist on playing their games. It makes no difference whether the powers that be are democratically elected or take power by brute force. How many Muslims have died because of this fighting? And how many Americans have died (besides the 3,000 from 9/11)? This isn’t a joke and it certainly isn’t a game. Leave the chanting for the sports stadiums.

      1. Kathleen says:

        Right, it’s not a football game but too many Americans are selfish these days and lack passion about their country. There are also too many foreigners who don’t care about the U.S. except to come here and make money or apply for government benefits. USA, USA, USA !!!!!!!!!!
