Hardwick Clothing Company is America’s oldest, continuously operated, tailored clothing manufacturer since July 28, 1880.
In today’s political climate it sadly takes real courage to take such a stand. It’s not many companies that take a stand for their beliefs at the current events where liberals attack everyone who disagrees with them!
The company’s CEO, Cleveland businessman Allan Jones, blasted the League’s “unpatriotic behavior” and directed his advertising firm to pull ads for his companies during NFL games.
Via The Chattanoogan:
“Our companies will not condone in any form the unpatriotic behavior demonstrated by the NFL.”
“For the 29 states we operate in, this isn’t much for them, but it’s a lot for us. The Tombras group is our ad agency in Knoxville and our national media buyer for both TV and Radio. . . and don’t look for Hardwick in the NFL either.
“When I see Colin Kaepernick lecturing the “oppressed” wearing a Fidel Castro T-shirt you realize the hypocrisy to this stupidity. I love America. They have the right to protest and I have the right to turn off the channel and place our ads elsewhere. The next time someone asks the public to finance a stadium this will have a very long-term effect. These guys should really be the lead plaintiffs in the head injury cases that’s the only jury that will find sympathy!
“If you will research why Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner you will realize why I am upset about these NFL players protesting. They don’t even know what it is they are protesting.
“The flag was still standing. 200 English ships tried to take it down. They kept it up all night and it could only be seen when the bombs were bursting in the air. So many patriots gave their lives to keep the flag up – and now to have people protesting who don’t have a clue about any of this bothers me.
“Please research Key’s motivation for writing his famous song and you will see why I’m upset that the protesters don’t have a clue.
“Our companies will not condone unpatriotic behavior!
“TAKING A STAND… NOT A KNEE!”
Thank you for supporting those of us who believe it a privilege to salute the flag of the United States of America while listening to the anthem.
The NFL and the team owners make their choices, WE make ours, and you make yours.
God Bless America, and you and your company, and its employees!
