Sheriff Boycotts Ford Over NFL Sponsorship

posted by Bill Strange -

A Louisiana sheriff says his office will not be buying any Ford products because of the automaker's support of NFL players protesting during the national anthem.  Bossier Parish Sheriff Julian Whittington cited players' disrespect to the American flag, the American military, and their disdain for law enforcement in general as his reasons for ending his relationship with the local Ford dealership.  

Last month, NFL sponsor Ford released a statement in response to players kneeling during the anthem, saying the company respects the rights of the individuals to express their views, even if the company doesn't share those views.
