NFL Kneeling Team Invites Navy Veteran To Game to Honor Him – His Response Sets The Internet On Fire

NFL players protest is a national sick joke!! They picked the wrong forum and manner for this issue.

The national anthem and flag are honored at sporting events for veterans that served and gave their life for our country. NFL players abuse women and yes there are some bad cops but Disrespecting Country, veterans, and a flag is a dishonor, not a protest!! The right to protest does not make it right!!

A retired Navy officer set to be honored at a Saints game Sunday declined the award, citing controversy over the National Anthem at football games. His Response Sets The Internet On Fire!!

Via IJR:

Former Commander John Wells, who was set to receive the Peoples Health Champion Award, responded to the offer in a letter to executives in the Saints organization and Peoples Health. The award is given to community members who have achieved “significant accomplishments.”

However, Wells wanted nothing to do with it.

“I am unable, in good conscience, to enter an NFL stadium while this discourtesy prevails,” Wells wrote to executives of Peoples Health and the Saints.

“I had hoped and prayed that the NFL would outlaw these disgraceful protests and wanted to give the commissioner and the owners a fair opportunity to do so. Their failure to act is a slap in the face to all of those who have served in uniform. Men and women have fought and died for the flag that the players are disrespecting,” he said.

Despite many players taking a part in national anthem protests, Saints quarterback Drew Brees attempted to find a solid middle ground and the team kneeled before the anthem, instead of kneeling during its playing. Brees took it to Twitter to announce the team’s action:

NFL stands for nothing if they cannot follow their own rules. Actions speak louder then words and the actions during our anthem is disgusting and disrespectful and shows every one worldwide their real thoughts about our nation. Protesting is one thing but doing it during our anthem for any reason is horrible.

You, Sir, you are truly an American hero and I will always stand in honor of our free country, anthem, and flag. That being said I continue to boycott the NFL, sponsors, and media broadcasting NFL games. The NFL has greatly offended the American people and those who have fought and continue to fight for this great country!

So bye-bye NFL!
