AMVETS, a national veterans organization, spent $30,000 on an advertisement which was to be placed into the Super Bowl LII program. The NFL, “which wholeheartedly supports our troops,” refused to accept the ad.
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 features the tag “#PleaseStand” with a picture of service members saluting the American flag and information on how to donate to the organization. Group leaders said NFL officials refused to include the ad in their Super Bowl publication, but did not issue a reason why.
Maybe because the NFL is chock full of anti-American, anti-military, anti-police leftists?
In a statement, NFL Vice President of Communications Brian McCarthy said the Super Bowl game program “is designed for fans to commemorate and celebrate the game, players, teams and the Super Bowl. It’s never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement.”
Yes, the NFL has a strict policy against political statements… unless they include kneeling during the National Anthem or raising the Black Power fist.
I realize this will fall on deaf ears, but the majority of NFL owners, administrators, and players hate this country, hate the military, and hate the police. The NFL does not deserve your support on Super Bowl Sunday, or any other day of the year.
