Everyday Americans find the National Anthem protests unpatriotic.
Despite proclamations from the mainstream media that the protests are heroic, people are standing up to voice their displeasure.
And an airport commission in Minnesota has now made their displeasure known in a bold way.
A commissioner in Minnesota put forth a motion to block flights into the area for the upcoming Super Bowl unless the protests end.
A regional airport commission in Minnesota has decided to take a stand against the NFL, for allowing players to kneel during the playing of the national anthem. The commission floated a resolution looking to bar flights into the area for Super Bowl LII.
During a Thursday meeting, the Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport Commission spoke out against the NFL’s national anthem protests and hinted that they may turn away overflow air traffic for the Super Bowl scheduled to be held in Minneapolis next February, according to the Washington Examiner.
The small airport based in Crow Wing County could see overflow air traffic, or diverted traffic, if other airports suffer weather-related delays as the volume of travelers climbs for the big game.
During last week’s meeting, commission member Jeff Czeczok introduced a resolution condemning the NFL for its protests and resolving that the Brainerd Lakes Airport would not accept the Super Bowl flights unless the NFL were to stop the protests.
Czeczok also reminded the board of Brainerd’s close historical relationship with the notorious Bataan Death March of World War Two, and all those American soldiers who died so miserably while wearing the American flag patch on their uniforms.
“I just would like to remind the people sitting at this table that, you know, we have a national organization that has team members kneeling down during our national anthem,” commissioner Czeczok said.
Another commissioner, Marty Johnson, criticized the media for supporting the protests and for “spotlighting” them and giving them many times more oxygen.
One commissioner, Don Jacobson, agreed with Czeczok’s sentiment but said his colleague was going about addressing the issue in the wrong way.
The majority of commissioners voiced their support of the condemnation, and all but one of the board members commented positively on the matter. However, the resolution did not pass for lack of a second.
The leftist media seems shocked and awed that Americans actually care about this country and don’t believe it’s insidiously racist and evil.
If the protests continue, more people will start expressing their discord as this Minnesota airport commission did.
Patriotic Americans are beginning to vote with their dollars. NFL ratings are flagging across the board. Large swaths of people are boycotting the league all together.
Dallas Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones laid down the law and forbade his players from disrespecting the flag.
The NFL needs more of that so airport commissioners won’t have to pick up the slack.
