Despite Ford suggesting it supports athletes protesting our anthem and flag, a majority of Americans believe kneeling during national anthem is disrespectful.
So, here we have the country’s second-largest automaker who’s got a three-year agreement with the NFL that makes the Ford F-Series THE NFL’s official truck…basically supporting players and disrespecting our president, our nation and our military, along with the flag.
The Ford family has owned the Lions for decades. Members of the family also govern the Ford company. Ford’s executive chairman and chairman of the board is William Clay Ford Junior, and Edsel Ford II sits on the company’s board.
Of course, Trump has doubled down on his criticism of the protesting players, their fans and the NFL. “Sports fans should never condone players that do not stand proud for their National Anthem or their Country,” he tweeted on Sunday.
He also told his supporters to consider a boycott. “If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our country, you will see change take place fast,” he tweeted.
Ford Motor Company may make the F-Series and it may be the NFL official truck, but they had better be extremely careful or they will no longer be America’s truck. Americans will just take their money ELSEWHERE!
If there is one thing that hardworking Americans support, it’s our military and our flag! The NFL players and Ford Motor Company better wake up soon or there will no longer be a huge amount fans supporting their fat salaries and their nice taxpayer funded stadiums.
“The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this!” Trump said in another tweet.
If the NFL doesn’t wake up soon, the stands will be empty. Then, Ford can take their little F-Series that was built ‘Ford tough’ and go F-themselves.
