Oh boy, the Super Bowl! Are you excited for 60 minutes of sports and 3 hours of ads? We certainly aren’t! The NFL is censoring a commercial for veterans just cause the ad asked people to “please stand” for the National Anthem.
From Conservative Post:
AMVETS officials are decrying “corporate censorship” from the National Football League for their decision not to run an ad in their Super Bowl program which responds to league players’ decision to kneel for the national anthem in protest of national equality issues.
The ad, which would have cost the veterans organization $30,000, features the tag “#PleaseStand” with a picture of service members saluting the American flag and information on how to donate to the congressionally-chartered organization.
Group leaders said NFL officials refused to include the ad in their Super Bowl publication, but did not issue a reason why. In a statement, AMVETS National Commander Marion Polk said the issue is one of fairness and respect.
The NFL obviously doesn’t care enough about respect of our veterans, or for our country, or they would have put a stop to the Anthem B.S. a long time ago. Instead, they have watched their viewership numbers dwindle over this season, and a national boycott ruin their bottom line.
