Highway billboard pushes back against NFL protests

For one Virginia sheriff, NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem is disrespectful to the flag, the military and America.

So Bedford County Sheriff Mike Brown put his money where his mouth is and paid for a highway billboard that pushes back against the protests, declaring in no uncertain terms what law enforcement stands for — and kneels for.

The billboard reads, “Law enforcement stands & places hand over heart for National Anthem! We kneel when we pray!” and can be seen on Route 460 near the Bedford County entrance from Lynchburg, WSET-TV reported.

    These overpaid players take a knee for injustice by police to their race. How about the times police have been there to help rescue protect those of their race when they needed help. The police were these not these phonys on their knees

    • ward

      These kneeling asses don’t know or are too stupid to see the so called injustice was their own violation of U.S. Laws & the cops did their jobs to enforce according to the defiant criminals resistance !

    • denlee

      Amen to that! I fly my flag high up on very tall pole in front of my home, but not all the way to the top, since I fly the Christian flag above it – God, then Country! They fly 24/7, with auto spotlight on them during hours of darkness. I served in the U.S. Army during the “Cold War” (enlisted as soon as I turned 17) in the 41st Armored Infantry Bn., 2nd Armored Div., along the border between East & West Germany ( the “Iron Curtain”), fully prepared, and fully expecting to be pushing the Red Army back to Moscow if they got out of line. Fortunately Kruschev was smart enough to never “test the waters”.

  • Walter Bazner

    I support law enforcement and the veterans and our flag!!!! I say this is a wonderful sign!!!

  • ward

    Disrespect for the National Anthem & U.S. Flag is reason enough for any ass that defies the U.S.A. in this type of treason commands expulsion from the U.S. with a denounced citizenship & no return ! These asses of hate for the U.S. do not deserve the Freedom & Rights U.S. Patriots protect & die for ! Kiss off traitors !

  • Meg

    Patriots who serve the people.

  • Patsy House Holden

    Amen!! More of us believe that way than people think!!

  • James W. Porter

    NFL things we should have special separate laws because their great, great, may have been a slave. No you break the law you pay the price. Police are not out there to give their lives , but they are their to protect your lives. NFL players grow up . You should have learned more the protesting in collage and school, One thing is get on your knees and give thanks to America for what all Americans , including Black People have in America. Shame upon you you black thugs for disgrace you but on all the Black people in America.

    • ward

      Appears these kneeling dem asses are creating their defiance against our POTUS and being instigated by bo, soros type wannabe dictators with a muslim, marxist stench of treason … !

  • chucklc

    Good for him! The leftist bullshit is eroding our society at every level and with the Liberal media behind it we ALL must fight back.

    • ward

      The dem left have become a #1 enemy against U.S. Patriots since the 8 years of bo’s treason !

      • Cheg

        HALLELEUJIA!!! Sp? AND AMEN !!! YOU ARE SOOOOO RIGHT, WARD. OBAMA WAS GROOMED BY THE LITTLE RED “COMMUNIST” CHURCH IN HAWAII, REV. WRIGHT AND PAID FOR BY GEORGE SOROS, AND COMMANDED BY VALERIE JARRETT. I COULDN’T BELIEVE SO MANY PEOPLE RE-ELECTED HIM INTO OFFICE THE SECOND TIME! HE IS A BIG PIECE OF CRAP, TO SAY THE VERY LEAST. UNFORTUNATELY, HE IS STILL WORKING AGAINST OUR COUNTRY AND PRESIDENT TRUMP TO CONTINUE TRASHING OUR COUNTRY. THE GOOD LORD NEEDS TO TAKE HIM OUT. IN FACT, ALL THE DEMS NEED TO GO!!!! THE BLACK VS. WHITE ISSUE HAD BEEN CLEANED UP BEFORE OB CAME INTO OFFICE AND CONTINUED TO STIR THEM UP AGAIN.

    Remember Red Skelton’s tribute to the Pledge??? His rendition brings tears and so beautiful…..

    • JimnSal

      Wow, Grinnie, that was truly refreshing! Red Skelton, back in the days when we knew right from wrong. We had 2 bathrooms, the boys used the men’s bathroom and the girls used the women’s. Who would’a thought?

  • Robert A Oziomek

    Makes sense to me. Pray after you stand for the National Anthem.

    • JimnSal

      So true, Robert, our country deffinately needs prayer.

  • rugvendor

    good job Sheriff ….. God Bless Constitutional Sheriffs ……. the peoples law enforcement specialists, elected by the people they serve

  • Statesman Patriot

    Every law enforcement agency and individual officer should decline to do any security for any NFL team, owner or player!

  • denlee

    I believe these small minded, grossly overpaid, minions need a reminder regarding the source of their income – their unpatriotic actions are not only offensive to any patriotic citizen, but more so to the brave members of our military who gave their all to defend this country and the flag they disrespect. Perhaps it is time for all who truly love the “Good Ole USA” and the values and freedoms our national flag represents give these nitwits a lesson by hitting them hard where it will hurt the most – in their pocketbooks!

    • JobRon

      denlee: I’ve not watched, bought products or listened to anything associated with the National Felon’s League. I have a friend who was a staunch dolphins fan His man cave was filled with their memorabilia. Crapperdick took his knee, that ended everything for both of us.The rue patriots have answered: stadiums almost empty, the commis crying in his spilled milk, all to dwindling $$$ coming in.They deserve everything they get — which is NOTHING.

  • Patricia

    I want one of the bumper stickers. Does anyone know how to get one.

  • rks

    I love it, Those NFL players can go to N. Korea an see what they can get away with. Nothing! How’s a life of hard labor sound and no chance of getting out sound to you Un American pukes.

  • Bert

  • TrueRedWhiteandBlue

    You GO Sheriff Brown!! We’ve got your back!

  • Dean

    The Kneelers are disrespectful anti-American millionaire thugs. Ungrateful and misguided. Illinformed dopes who think they are protesting against racial injustice and police brutality. Manufactured by the media to make it look like blacks are mistreated by police in overwhelming numbers. Washington Post, 757 people shot and killed by police this year. 329 whites, 165 blacks, 112 hispanics, 24 members of other races, and 107 race unknown.

  • vladilyich

    So the sheriff doesn’t like it? He’ll get over it because there’s nothing he can do about it.

  • StingraySFO

    My country and my flag! Disrespect it and you’ll answer to me! I’ve served it at home and abroad, and continue to do so!

  • Lee Robinson

    BRAVO SHERIFF BROWN!!! I’M WW2, 11TH AF, 144TH AACS. I resent idiots SPITTING IN MY FACE!!!
