Now that we’re mobilizing and applying pressure all the way up the line to the NFL’s corporate sponsors, businesses are realizing that the players who disrespect our country by taking a knee for the National Anthem are on the wrong side of history.
The dominoes are starting to fall!
Phil Long dealerships has asked KOAA-TV to stop airing their ads featuring Broncos linebacker Von Miller after he kneeled during the National Anthem before the Broncos vs. Bills game Sunday.
The dealership said Miller is fired from his endorsement deal and will no longer represent the company.
Miller’s protest was one of 200 various protests across the league on Sunday in response to President Trump’s criticism of players who kneel to protest racial injustice. After the Broncos loss to the Bills, Miller addressed his decision to take a knee.
“We felt like President Trump’s speech was an assault on our most cherished right, freedom of speech,” said Miller, who normally steers clear of politics and social issues.
A week ago, just six players protested.
It isn’t the first time a business in Colorado Springs has tried to distance itself from a player who kneeled during the anthem.
In 2016, The President of the Air Academy Federal Credit Union dropped Broncos LB Brandon Marshall as a spokesman after he decided to join former 49er’s QB Colin Kaepernick’s protest.
Keep spreading the good word about the upcoming “Boycott The NFL” event taking place across America on Nov. 12th (Veterans Day), where we’ll send the NFL a massive message by attacking their pockets.
Also, here’s the official “I Proudly Stand For The Anthem” t-shirt (we have hoodie and v-neck options, too!) that has part of the proceeds going to the National Coalition of Homeless Veterans!
