Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall was one of several NFL players who have decided to protest alleged ‘black oppression’ by kneeling or raising their fists doing the BLACK POWER SIGN when the national anthem is played before games.
Now he’s getting a taste of what happens when you abuse free speech by spreading racism nationwide on television. Filthy scumbag a holes
Stephen Martin, the owner of Prime Time Sports in Colorado Springs, Colorado, heard about Marshall’s protest and immediately canceled the football star’s scheduled appearance and autograph signing at his store.
In his Facebook post, Martin explained his decision and suggested a different kind of event to replace the autograph signing.
This is awesome.
Here’s his post in it’s entirety:
“My name is Stephen Martin and I own Prime Time Sports in the Chapel Hills Mall. A month before the NFL season began I made an agreement with Brandon Marshall of the Denver Broncos to have a public autograph signing.
After Thursday night’s opening game I decided to cancel this event and soon after my store phones and social media pages were lit up with the kind of words that no business owner ever wants to here.
I respect Brandon Marshall’s freedom of expression, but I question his method of delivery. I agree that his concerns need to be addressed, but not at the expense of our flag and what it represents.
There have been times in the last week where I have gone AWOL to my heart by my silence, but now I have been awakened by the memory of my wife’s father Kenneth J Porwoll who survived the Bataan Death March.
He was thrown into the hull of a cargo ship called the Taga Maru where he was sandwiched with hundreds of other soldiers without room to even lie down while being hauled to Japan where he was a POW for 3 ½ years. He was saturated in human sweat, urine and fecal matter for weeks in plus 100 degree heat without food, water or medical care and to this store owner that story is a better use of the word “deplorable”.
I was at this man’s funeral. I saw the American Flag draped over his coffin. I was there when that folded American Flag was handed to his wife, Mary Ellen Porwoll. I heard that 21 gun salute.
This store owner believes that the simple act of standing during our national anthem is a noble and responsible gesture that salutes our nation and the military that protects it. Now I want to stand up and hear the voice of the American Flag and I need your help.
I am asking for photos of your loved ones that are veterans, in active service, who have been injured in the line of duty or who have paid the ultimate price. I will post these photos on my store front windows under the banner, “These people have sacrificed for the ideas represented by our flag. We honor them”.
I got this powerful vision that we can cover these windows top to bottom and side to side and proclaim our support for these United States of America. Will you help me build this wall of honor?
Photos can be brought in or mailed to Prime Time Sports, 1710 Briargate Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO 80920 or emailed to email@example.com.”
The response has been HUGE!
Take a look!
HELL YEAH! USA!!!!!
Check THIS OUT!!!
Martin posted on Facebook that he had received 625 pictures to put up on the wall after just a few days of his “Honor the Flag” event.
“Our voice, the voice of the active, the injured and the fallen is being heard,” Martin wrote. “Thank You, America.”
THIS IS WHAT AMERICA IS ALL ABOUT!
SCREW THAT RACIST, AMERICA HATING, OVERPAID SAVAGE! THEY CAN ALL GO TO HELL!
F BLACK LIVES MATTER. F THE NFL. F OBAMA. F HILLARY! F EM ALL!
God bless our heroes, our veterans, our police and GOD BLESS AMERICA!
VOTE FOR DONALD J. TRUMP! TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
Peyton Manning Shares Tender Post-Game Kiss With Hand That Feeds Him
In a touching display of affection and corporate affiliation, Peyton Manning sealed his Super Bowl victory last night by planting a tender kiss on the hand that feeds him. Their sweet moment was captured by cameras, so that all might share in their candid, contractual love.
While Cam Newton waited at midfield to offer Manning his congratulations on a game, well, played, the Denver quarterback obviously had his mind on celebrating with those most important to him. So Manning searched the crowd for the welcoming arms and check-writing hands of Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter, reaching in to give the pizza-product magnate a warm hug and intimate buss on the cheek that said, This win would mean nothing without you, or my 21 Papa John’s locations in the Denver metro area.
Denver Broncos’ Brandon Marshall will donate $300 for every tackle this season.
Brandon Marshall will donate $300 for every tackle he makes this season, he wrote on Instagram Wednesday. Marshall is one of at least 13 NFL players who have joined Colin Kaepernick in his pre-game protests during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” this season. Marshall’s donations will go to relevant organizations.
