Pasted on the doors at Beef O’Brady’s Restaurant in Dayton , Ohio is a sign that reads: “To our customers: Due to the disrespect shown toward our great country and the men and women that have sacrificed so much to defend and protect it, this establishment will no longer offer for viewing any NFL game or related broadcast.”
Owner Bill DeFries pushed for the move but did not know if the inevitable loss of revenue from patrons would sit well with other members of the leadership team.
“We are a family restaurant,” said DeFries, “and we have been for 13 years. And our customers are from the community. They come in here to relax and enjoy a meal and be entertained, in particular by the NFL on Sundays. But we also serve a lot of local military families and veterans, many of whom share my view on the NFL players’ actions during the national anthem.”
Conservative Fighters also quotes DeFries as saying, “I have to tell you as a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, I served to defend our country’s Constitution and free speech, and while I defend the right of every American to express their views and voice this freely, the actions demonstrated by the NFL players during the country’s national anthem — it was offensive and disrespectful to me as a proud veteran and all my fellow veterans.”
DeFries had nothing to worry about, according to the sales numbers following his restaurant’s decision. In speaking with a local newspaper, DeFries is quoted as saying, “Every day our sales have been up between 200 and 300 percent. People we have never seen before are driving hours to support us and the employees. We have received heart-warming and supportive phone calls, emails and direct messages from people all over the United States thanking us.”

It is so reassuring to see, once again, the American people taking the narrative of discontent peddled by SJW millionaires, crumbling it up and throwing it in the face of these miscreants.
The victory of Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton marked a fundamental awakening of the long-silent majority in this country. DeFries has learned that this awakening is real and palpable. Let this be a lesson to every American.
