Following in the footsteps of previous NFL players – including their equally untalented hero Colin Kaepernick – many Cleveland Browns players kneeled during the National Anthem last week. The players did so during a nationally-televised game.
Now, a VFW post in Strongsville, Ohio, has responded to the team’s despicable display.
A VFW Post 3345 in Strongsville posted a sign that says it will no longer televise Cleveland Browns games.
“We like our Browns – we love our flag more. Your games will no longer be shown here. God Bless America!”
The decision by a dozen Browns players to kneel during the National Anthem before Monday’s football game has caused a lot of controversy. The protest was the largest in a social-consciousness movement started last season by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, currently a free agent.
If I am ever passing by VFW Post 3345, drinks are on me.
John McCain-esque “conservative” Hugh Hewitt is a Browns shill, and to date he has not mentioned the protest on his Twitter feed. It’s yet another reason why I despise him and his pollution of my radio airwaves. Actual conservatives believe kneeling during the anthem is disrespectful, but apparently MSNBC “conservatives” feel otherwise.
For my part, I do not regret my boycott of the NFL – which began last year – nor do I miss it. Personally, I hope the Browns never win another game.
