Cleveland Businessman Pulls NFL Ads After #TakeTheKnee
Is there a running tally of people boycotting the NFL because of #TakeTheKnee? As there was a tally of players who took the knee? (See Car Dealership Removes Commercials of Broncos’ Von Miller After He Knelt for the Anthem and Surprise! Football Fans Demand Refunds for ‘NFL Sunday Ticket’. And Get Them…)
Add Cleveland businessman Allen Jones to the Businesses Boycotting. He just removed all commercials for Check into Cash, Buy Here Pay Here USA, and U.S. Money Shops from NFL games.
“When I see Colin Kaepernick lecturing the ‘oppressed’ wearing a Fidel Castro T shirt, you realize the hypocrisy to this stupidity. I love America. They have the right to protest and I have the right to turn off the channel and place our ads elsewhere. The next time someone asks the public to finance a stadium, this will have a very long term effect. These guys should really be the lead plaintiffs in the head injury cases-that’s the only jury that will find sympathy!”
Exit question: Have any pro #TakeTheKnee companies stepped up and been willing to advertise more to make up for the lost revenue? Methinks no. Not a surprise. In leftist circles, good feelings are currency enough.
Actions have consequences. If an entity like the NFL wants to take a political stand, or take a bended knee in some kind of protest against the president (even though kneeling before authority is what serfs did to kings, but okay) and America, they're free to do so. But for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. A little Isaac Newton for your Thursday. Never say you didn't get a daily dosage of science here. As the NFL takes a stand against America, America is taking a stand against the NFL.
Who will win?
