On Tuesday, Pizza giant Papa John’s made a huge reversal about the NFL players protesting our National Anthem, and it’s absolutely disgusting.
After receiving immense pressure from the left-wing mob, Papa John’s announced that they “support the players’ movement to create a new platform for change“.
So they’re basically telling us “Our pizza sales are suffering, so…we’re sorry! Protest all you want!”
Here’s more from ABC News:
Papa John’s Pizza apologized Tuesday night for comments made by CEO John Schnatter blaming sluggish pizza sales on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem.
“The statements made on our earnings call were describing the factors that impact our business and we sincerely apologize to anyone that thought they were divisive,” it said. “That definitely was not our intention.
“We believe in the right to protest inequality and support the players’ movement to create a new platform for change. We also believe, as Americans, we should honor our anthem. There is a way to do both.”
See what they tried to do there? At the end of the statement, they tried to say that they ALSO want people to “honor our anthem”.
Sorry guys, but you CAN’T have both. Any time you kneel during the anthem, you are disrespecting our flag.
Furthermore, if you want to protest, DO IT ON YOUR OWN TIME. If the NFL is going to allow them to protest “inequality” on the field, then why not bring abortion into it? Why not gay marriage? Why not criticisms of Hillary Clinton? Why not let them hold signs expressing whatever political belief they might have?
Oh, that’s right, because THIS political issue fits right into the left-wing narrative.
