Missouri bar using "Lynch" and "Kaepernick" jerseys as doormats

From KOMU: A Lake of the Ozarks bar owner was taking heat Tuesday for what at least one passer-by saw as a racist doormat out front.
“It’s not a race thing,” said Jason Burle, who owns the S.N.A.F.U Bar near the Bagnell Dam. “A lot of people want to twist it around to be a race thing.”
Burle said he ordered two NFL jerseys to be used as doormats outside his bar after NFL players started kneeling during the national anthem at football games.
“We pulled them out of the box, taped them down. There was no ill-intent,” Burle said.
Burle used the jerseys of NFL players Marshawn Lynch and Colin Kaepernick. When placed side-by-side, the jerseys read “Lynch” “Kaepernick.”
“If someone thinks that I mean personal harm to someone, they don’t know me,” Burle said.
But that’s what crossed Taylor Sloan’s mind when he saw the jerseys outside Burle’s bar over the weekend.
“That’s not the Missouri I know,” Sloan said. “It just kind of upset me really bad. Put a bad taste in my mouth.”
Sloan posted on the bar’s Facebook page. He and Burle had a heated exchange online.
Sloan wrote on the page, “You are also expressing hate, violence and continuing American racism under the faux guise of patriotism.”
Burle responded, “It’s funny to me that someone would look that far deeply into it just to find a racist link.”
Burle told KOMU the doormat is about standing up for himself and his family, many of whom served in the military. Burle spent six years in the Air Force. Seeing NFL players kneel during the national anthem didn’t sit well with him.
“A lot of us military folks take that personal to heart,” Burle said.

Any US congress person who does this disrespectful act on the floor of congress should be forced to kneel on a guillotine!

The faux offended Sloan is a nitwit race-baiter, and we’re ALL weary of jerks like him. The S.N.A.F.U. Bar sounds like my kind of bar. Don’t like, Sloan? Go to a politically correct bar of liberal robots. Am sure you’d feel much more comfortable there. OR you could grow up a tad and hang out with adults at SNAFU. Up to you, kid.

It is after all accusations of ‘racism’ by police brutality that began this kneeling nonsense. We know that law enforcement does make many mistakes and have been guilty of unjustified brutality, in truth, no worse against blacks than whites. In reality whites are more victimized than blacks. I have suffered a few examples myself. It seems now to have morphed into an actual anti-American movement, of course prompted by the media. But what I think what blacks are truly seeking; their idea of ‘social justice’ is free reign to commit any and all criminal acts with out any threat of… Read more »

“You are also expressing hate, violence and continuing American racism under the faux guise of patriotism.” “Faux guise” ?!? Those are “talking points”, folks. The entire line… We are now to associate “patriotism” with things like Isolationism, Supremacism, and worse. NOTHING could be further from the Truth! BTW, that bar rearranged the jerseys under social pressure, according to the report I saw. Reversed their order. Ridiculous. “They” will read anything into whatever they want… in order to mount their opposition. Let big government and the ACLU types “protect” them… grant them new “rights”. Then declare them “Constitutional”. What a load.… Read more »

I think this is absolutely an opportunity. The players have a right to say and do whatever they like. The clubs have a right to fire them, and should. The fans have a right not to watch or sponsor them in any way. They should use that right. If everybody does what they should the “problem” is solved. The NFL will be no more. People who enjoy this stuff can watch college games (unless they get silly too). If they do, they can find other interests and, we can see a living example of killing multi-million dollar incomes for no… Read more »

If the NFL would actually go under, then most of the guys you see playing college football would no longer be enrolled at those universities. They are not really student athletes. That is their NFL training ground, nothing more. The college football games would revert to what they were years ago, before the NFL existed, a Saturday afternoon diversion.

Oh yeah, they’d be getting busted in a week and we would be paying to keep them housed in jail.

Well, which is better, jail or millions to run around after a ball and pretend it’s important?

They should get blow up pictures of them and put them on the dart boards. Just cut the TV cords and send the ends to the NFL.

These kneeling players can be fired for chewing gum on the field, so of course it’s the owners who’re behind this outrageous defamation of our country and our local police departments, both said to be evil and racist for not being perfect. Ultimately it’s defamation of Western Civilization no different than what’s shoved in our faces by Hollywood and TV. I’ve followed a bit of this diversion on Fox News and have to laugh that they won’t touch the third rail of NFL commentary with a 10-foot pole–mainly that there’s less than 11 minutes of generally boring, staged, action plays… Read more »

Yes, it is mind control at its finest. You’ve explained it exactly. Up is down, right is left, etc.. They are rubbing noses in people’s symbols. They’re saying “look, you don’t run things anymore. We don’t care what you think”.

Anyone that thinks Kap doesn’t have evil in his heart should ask him why he gave $25,000 to the defense of a cop killer hiding in Cuba.
