With Veterans Day rapidly approaching and just over 40 days away, many Patriots have resolved to do something big–and something probably never done before.
Every year, this special day gives Americans an opportunity to step back and reflect on the sacrifices our current military members make every single day. Not only that, it allows us the chance to let our Veterans know just how much we truly care about them, and how grateful we are for their dedication to helping protect and defend our amazing freedoms.
These brave Americans stormed the beaches of Normandy, defended freedom in the jungles of Vietnam, battled in the sands of Iraq, and carried western values to countless other places on this planet, always putting country first, America First.
Sadly, the NFL and its affiliates have chosen to do quite the opposite: to exploit America for its money, all while refusing to honor the very country that not only allowed them to prosper, but even extended their success with tax subsidies.
And in reaction, 82,000 Patriots are now vowing to hit the NFL where it hurts–right in their pocket book.
Reported by CBS, this large group of American Patriots is planning to stage a boycott on Veterans Day–the same day that the NFL normally rakes in millions thanks to viewers all around the country.
Furthermore, the group is calling on all concerned citizens to follow in their footsteps to send a message directly to the NFL Commissioner himself: Roger Goodell. President Trump has expressed great unhappiness with these overpaid players who choose not to enact a positive change, but to instead disrespect the flag and national anthem as an outlet for their own media attention.
The booing at the NFL football game last night, when the entire Dallas team dropped to its knees, was loudest I have ever heard. Great anger

So as we move forward towards Veterans Day, let us remember to thank those that served, not just through our words, but through our actions. We thank them for their selfless dedication to country and their bravery. We are a better nation because of them–and it’s time the NFL came to realize that.
