Vets & Truckers Are Ditching Famous Gas Station Chain Over Flag Disgrace

This week, a lot of people are starting to take action against the national anthem protesters.

The protest started by a football player on the court one year ago, it’s reaching its highest influence this year, especially the past few months.

Now outside people are also taking a part in the protest.

One of the events that occurred, connected to this topic doesn’t include players protesting. It’s about the owners expressing their hatred out of the field. According to WSAZ, a group of veterans wanted to put up flags for the Vietnam Memorial in Flying J gas station in the Bluegrass State.

After they put up the flags and waited for the vehicle to come by, the owner of the gas station told the vets that they weren’t allowed to fly the flags. The owner Jimmy Haslam’s Browns also owns the NFL’s Cleveland Browns and Is known for Democratic relations.

After the incident, a lot of American people are threatening to boycott the gas station. Their demand is to install a flag pole in the gas station, where the American and the POW flag would be placed. To this, the owners have given a very inconsistent explanation. They claim that the reason for not allowing the flags to be hung up is safety oriented:

“Pilot Flying J proudly welcomes the American flag at all our locations. After looking into the concern at our store #660, located at 15236 State Route 180, Catlettsburg, KY, we found that the concerns were not with the flags themselves, but with the safety of where they were placed as we need to make sure they don’t block the lines of sight of drivers pulling into our locations.” – as Conservative Tribune reports.

After this call for boycotting, a lot of people joined in for a similar reason. The owner’s support of the player’s protests. Recently, a video was posted on Facebook, where Matt, a Navy Veteran called for a boycott of Haslam stores against those who disrespected the country.

“We just watched the beginning of the Cleveland Browns (game) and the national anthem, and the owner, Jimmy Haslam allowed most of his team to take a knee during the anthem,” Matt stated. He also spray-painted his Browns leather jacket, making a red meta on it.

Let’s stop watching NFL, as the only way to punish them.
