We all learned from the election that you can't base the majority of Americans' feelings on the representation of the liberal media. All the outlets were predicting a landslide win from Hillary, but the American people spoke otherwise.
Such is the same with this issue with the national anthem. If you judged by the reaction of the NFL and other liberals, you would think everyone hates President Trump and is protesting "injustice." But the rapid and growing applause of Franklin Graham's latest Facebook post betrays the truth: many Americans do not like this flagrant show of disrespect for the nation.
Within hours of posting, Graham's post has already garnered over 100k likes and 10's of thousands of shares. It's obvious that so many Americans are fed up with this kind of liberal disrespect. And as Graham shared, NASCAR is taking a strong stance against it too.
While many NFL players (and coaches and owners!) knelt in protest during the national anthem this weekend, NASCAR did not share in the protest during their cup series race outside Concord, N.H.
Fox News shares that this is due to the strong warning NASCAR owner Richard Childress gave his employees, saying that anyone driver or crew member protest will "get [them] a ride on a Greyhound bus." He continued, "Anybody that works for me should respect the country we live in. So many people gave our lives for it. This is America."
NASCAR icon Richard Petty, a former driver and current team owner, echoed Childress' sentiments, saying, "Anybody that won't stand up for the anthem ought to be out of the country," he said. "Period." Franklin Graham applauded NASCAR's stance, saying that the NFL should take a page out of their playbook.
What do you think of NASCAR's policy against the protests? Do you agree with Graham? Voice your thoughts in the comments! And share this message if you are one of the many Americans who don't like this form of disrespect for America!
Graham made an earlier statement about all of the kneeling in pride and protest, saying that the players (and all Americans) should do this instead.
