FIGHT for the NATIONAL ANTHEM by fighting back against the NFL.
Written by DML
CNN host Anderson Cooper recently held a town hall meeting about “patriotism” and the NFL kneeling during the national anthem.
On the panel was filmmaker Spike Lee, former NFL star Hines Ward, former service member Nate Boyer, and a NY politician who also played in the NFL, Rev. Michel Faulkner. Via satellite were NFL players who are participating in kneeling during the national anthem.
Unfortunately, the program skipped over patriotism, and went directly towards attacking President Trump and providing excuses as to why protesting the national anthem is acceptable.
I came away realizing that the kneeling in the NFL will continue unless the American people make it stop.
If we don’t make it stop, it could become a permanent movement.
Over the past two weeks, a Major League Baseball player from the Oakland A’s took a knee; a a pee-wee football team in Illinois took a knee; a youth football league in Texas is now banning the national anthem; members of Congress took a knee in the House; Chicago police officers took a knee; a cupcake maker in California is advertising cupcakes that read “take a knee”, and a 1st grader in Florida knelt down for the Pledge of Allegiance in school. The list of protests is getting longer by the day, and they are spreading throughout the USA.
I feel like we have to do something to fight back against this. My idea is simple. I am hoping we can start a bumper sticker movement. I will use the net profits generated from the sale of the stickers to place ads explaining why we must all stand for the flag. I will also run ads promoting the FACTS about police brutality and how President Trump is not a racist. The ads will run on Facebook, radio programs, and hopefully TV during the NFL games if we can raise enough money.
Outlets like CNN cannot be permitted to blast out a false narrative about police brutality and how kneeling during the anthem isn’t a slap in the face to those who love, defend, and honor the flag. Our bumper sticker campaign is how we can fight back.
What people are saying about the bumper sticker campaign:
“I don’t put bumper stickers on my cars, but this time I make an exception!”
“We need a voice in this debate. I bought 10 stickers to hand out to my family.”
“The players think America is on their side. We’re not. The bumper sticker tells the story.”
Sadly, advertisers like USAA aren’t pushing back on the NFL. This week we learned that the USAA will continue to advertise with the league as a “Proud Sponsor.”
USAA is just one of the NFL advertisers who are sticking with the league. This leads me to believe these outlets are not authentic — meaning, their “support of veterans” is simply a way of selling their products and services. As the son of a U.S. Marine who suffers from PTSD, I find this sort of advertising repulsive.
That said, I hope you can guy a bumper sticker and proudly place it on your car, mailbox, cubicle at work… etc.
I will keep you updated each day about how the campaign is doing. As of Sept 30, we have sold over 13,000 stickers — not bad after just 3 days of promotion. We will continue with our efforts until each and every NFL player stands for the national anthem with his right hand placed over his heart.
THE BUMPER STICKER is just $3.99
It measures 3 inches by 8.25 inches and will be mailed via USPS.
