    Watch all the snowflakes whine that this is fascism. It won't be long now until the owners ban players from taking the knee. However, I doubt you will ever see them admit it.


    Allan Jones, CEO of Hardwick Clothing and Check Into Cash payday loan company, announced on Tuesday he is through with sponsoring the wardrobes and advertising on the NFL.

    Hardwick Clothing is America’s oldest suit maker.

    In his statement Jones said, “Our companies will not condone unpatriotic behavior!”

    The Times Free Press reported:

    Two years ago, Cleveland, Tenn., businessman Allan Jones was proudly showing off his newly acquired Hardwick Clothing-brand suits by providing the wardrobe for NBC’s on-air talent during the network’s broadcasts of NFL football games.

    But after NFL players and coaches challenged President Donald Trump and many took a knee during the national anthem played before their games over the weekend, Jones said he is through sponsoring the wardrobes or advertising on stations that air the National Football League.

    Jones, CEO of the payday lending chain Check Into Cash and owner of Hardwick Clothes — America’s oldest suit maker — tweeted his criticism and change of heart Tuesday.

    Never heard of them. Don't stop though, cons everywhere are in great need of something to validate their beliefs.

    Carry on half-soldier.

    I still think this entire controversy is an unbelievably stupid waste of time and energy.

    That's because you DON'T GET IT WHAT REAL AMERICANS THINK.

    You live in a LIBERAL BUBBLE and NONE OF YOUR FAMILY OR FRIENDS ARE REAL AMERICANS.

    Conceivably this is just a smart marketing move by this company. They know there are hyped-on-the-internet-crazoids who will buy nothing but their product because they "took a stand." I hope that they are that smart and cynical and not just some more snowflakes.

    Here's how it's going to work, the liberal media will do it's absolute best to pretend everything in fine and they will refuse to address stories about sponsors pulling out of the NFL until they are forced to do so. Idiots in the leaderless democrat party will remain silent and continue to lose elections.
