IN THE PAST WEEK ALONE, MILLIONS OF AMERICANS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY HAVE MADE THEIR FEELINGS CLEAR ON THE NFL MESS. THE FLAG AND NATIONAL ANTHEM WILL ALWAYS COME BEFORE EVERYTHING ELSE. AMERICANS ARE NOT GOING TO DEAL WITH THIS KIND OF DISRESPECT FROM A SPORTS LEAGUE ANY LONGER.
NOW, THE OUTRAGE OVER THE ANTHEM PROTESTS ARE GOING EVEN FURTHER.
QUITE A FEW TRUCK DRIVERS WHO HAPPEN TO ALSO BE VETERANS AND AVERAGE AMERICANS ARE PLANNING TO BOYCOTT THE GAS STATION CHAIN PILOT FLYING J BECAUSE OF THE OWNERS ACTION. IT JUST SO HAPPENS THAT THIS MAN IS ALSO THE OWNER OF THE NFL’S CLEVELAND BROWNS. IT ALSO STEMS FROM THE ACTIONS OF A MANAGER OF THE STORE IN KENTUCKY.
According to reports, a few weeks back, a few of the veterans came up to a Flying J in Kentucky and put out flags to welcome a Vietnam Memorial. That is when the manager of that particular store came out and said to the vets that they are not allowed to fly the American flag.
Because of the incident, the veterans have staged a massive protest that looks to put these guys out of business. This has made the Flying J company come out with a statement explaining their actions.
“Pilot Flying J proudly welcomes the American flag at all our locations. After looking into the concern at our store #660, located at 15236 State Route 180, Catlettsburg, KY, we found that the concerns were not with the flags themselves but with the safety of where they were placed as we need to make sure they don’t block the lines of sight of drivers pulling into our locations,” explained a statement by the company.
And as if that were not enough, another group of patriots are calling for a protest of the company because of the Cleveland Brown’s behavior during the national anthem. Take a look at what these fans did in response to their actions:
THE CLEVELAND BROWNS, OWNED BY JIMMY HASLAM WE’RE ALLOWED TO TAKE A KNEE ONCE AGAIN DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM @ INDIANAPOLIS. PILOT AND FLYING J TRUCKSTOPS ARE OWNED BY HASLAM. TWO PATRIOTS CALL FOR A BOYCOTT OF THESE TRUCKSTOPS.(Y) NEWLY PRESS FOR MORE.

It seems obvious to the rest of the country that they cannot continue on like this. But for some reason, the NFL just does not get it.
Will you boycott?
