Jewelry Store Just Infuriated Proud Americans With Sick NFL Billboard They Put Up – Backfires BIG TIME!

Published

There have been a number of bad ideas floated this week. Chief among them, in my opinion, was Nike’s “Just Do It” ad campaign featuring former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. I still think in the long run that is really going to hurt their brand. But there were other missteps as well… and one of them is a doozy.

Garieri Jewelers is a small business in Sturbridge, Massachusetts. They have just proven why you should not try and capitalize on politics in your marketing campaigns. Now, they are under fire from both sides for their blunder.

They have erected a billboard that the left is labeling racist. On the right, it’s being viewed as taking the kneeling during the National Anthem issue too lightly in the face of disrespect for our country, our police officers, our military veterans and our first responders. Not cool.

Garieri Jewelers set up an ad on a billboard along Route 20 in Charlton that shows a young man kneeling on a football field with an engagement ring asking his best girl to marry him. The caption reads, “If you’re going to take a knee this season, please have a ring in your hand.”

You might look at that and say the owner is making a clever statement that you should only kneel to ask your paramour to marry you on the field. But doing that during the National Anthem would not be good either. I guess the left sees it as racist because the couple is white… I don’t get it.

This idea was probably spawned by the Nike ad. It backfired big time and infuriated proud Americans from both sides of the political aisle. The store owner says it was a play on words surrounding the NFL player protest of kneeling during the National Anthem.

“It was intended to be attention-getting,” said Scott Garieri, the owner. He admits he was looking for attention here, but what he didn’t count on is what kind he would get.

“Someone saw it, pulled in off Route 20 and took a picture of it and then went off about how racist it is,” said Garieri. “Then they started attacking us, they wanted to come in and vomit on the [jewelry] cases, they were going to urinate on our sidewalks.” One social media comment went as far as suggesting Garieri’s daughter kill herself.

That’s the world we live in now, laid bare by social media. Death threats over a billboard that is in bad taste are terroristic in nature and just over the top violent and inexcusable. And when you see threats like these, most of the time, in my experience, they are from leftists.

Nike’s controversial ad bears the slogan: “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” Kaepernick has sacrificed nothing and those such as the police and our veterans have sacrificed everything. Meanwhile, Kaepernick makes millions.

I guess the store owner somehow thought this would be good for business but it was a phenomenally bad idea. When you have a social controversy such as the National Anthem issue with tempers running hot on both sides, you should never try and use it as a sales tactic. You just wind up ticking everyone off.

To be fair to the jewelry store owner, he says he opposes kneeling during the National Anthem. But his ad tried to capitalize on it and some see that as a sick form of self-capitalization. “I’m a firm believer in respecting the country, respecting the flag, respecting the National Anthem,” said Garieri.

One man named Mike Brady works near where that billboard is located. It had the opposite effect on him and he says it made him realize that discussions on social justice should be taken more seriously. That sounds very liberal to me.

“I have family members who fought at war and died at war, the National Anthem is very sacred,” said Brady. “At the same time, I have a son who is biracial. I can certainly see the players’ position on social issues need a lot more attention and how do we bring attention to it.”

“It wasn’t meant to be racist, business is business,” said Garieri. Yes, but some business is very bad business. See Marketing 101.

Garieri says the billboard is staying up because it’s generated so much response it’s worth the negative backlash. He may regret that a great deal and soon, but who knows? Nike’s sales jumped 31 percent this week – that won’t hold, but it says an awful lot about the current state of our politics in this country.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
