Players kneeling during the national anthem has caused a major controversy in the NFL as well as falling ratings, but now NASCAR is making a brave stand against these atnhem-protesting punks. As Red State Watcher reports, several NASCAR team owners have now said that if you’re on their team and you protest the anthem by kneeling you’re fired.
President Trump recently encouraged NFL owners to do the same to their disrespectful players who kneel during the anthem. Now it’s NASCAR who’s picking up the slack and laying down the law.

No protests or kneeling occurred during this weekend’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in New Hampshire because drivers know it’s un-American and unacceptable.
Legendary NASCAR champion Richard Petty likewise spoke out, saying any member of his team who tries to protest the national anthem in any way is gone. Petty owns Richard Petty Motorsports and is still admired by millions of fans for his amazing victories as a driver.
“Anybody that don’t stand up for the anthem oughtta be out of the country. Period. What got ’em where they’re at? The United States,” Petty said.
He’s so right. Like the saying goes: if you don’t love it leave it.
What do you think about NASCAR taking a stand? Doesn’t this prove the kind of impact President Trump can have on bringing us all together and ending division?
