The response to some Cleveland Browns players' National Anthem protest during a preseason game Monday has ran the gamut from supportive to straight vitriol. But yesterday, Strongsville's VFW 3345 took their reaction one step further, placing the above sign outside its establishment as well as posting to Facebook.
VFW Commander Tim Zvoncheck also took to Facebook, posting:
"So tonight, I asked the membership of my post, VFW 3345, what they thought of the Cleveland Browns players kneeling during the National Anthem and the coaching staff backing their decision. Just as I suspected, the "boos" nearly tore the roof off. Effective immediately, VFW Post 3345 will no longer televise any Cleveland Browns games! We will never support any person or organization who disgraces the flag or the anthem that we fought for and so many or our brothers and sisters have died for! Until a formal apology by this organization is publicized and the utter disregard to America ceases, we, as veterans of this great country will not stand for this! We love our Browns, but we love our flag more...God bless America and damn those who think differently! #RespectOurFlag"
