Military veterans, who sacrificed to serve our beautiful Constitution and flag are expressing their disgust for the NFL and their “protests.” Here’s what the people who truly matter think: the Veterans of Foreign Wars and The American Legion have both come out and expressed their loathing for the NFL’s open disrespect for our flag.
Watch how disgusted our vets are:
Vietnam combat veteran Keith Harman said this: “There is a time and place for civil debate, and wearing team jerseys and using sporting events to disrespect our country doesn’t wash with millions of military veterans who have and continue to wear real uniforms on real battlefields around the globe.”
We’ve treated NFL players as heroes for far too long. From now on, let’s honor true heroes, like Harman, and all the other men and women who have truly served.
Get this: 28 teams/250 players disrespected our flag this past weekend. Are you still watching?
American Legion National Commander Denise H. Rohan called the protests and the protesters “misguided and ungrateful.”
Have they not noticed: Colin Kaepernick, the first baby to disrespect our flag, still isn’t signed! I’ll admit, I don’t know a lot about his ability as a player, but I hear he’s pretty good. But, as I understand it, he’s still unsigned, and being avoided like the plague.
And that’s what we need to do, Patriots. Stand with our veterans. Avoid the disrespectful NFL like the plague. I know it’ll be hard. We all love football. But this disrespect cannot be tolerated. Trump said Tuesday morning:
Ratings for NFL football are way down except before game starts, when people tune in to see whether or not our country will be disrespected!

And here’s what Trump has called us to do:
If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!

Patriots, will you stand with our vets and President?
