Right now, the country is torn because of the NFL national anthem protests. As more and more players refuse to stand for the playing of The Star Spangled Banner because they are trying to raise awareness about racial injustice and police brutality, the camps on either side get louder and louder.
President Trump believes that the players should all stand and honor the flag. But the NFL owners don’t seem to be inclined to force their players to follow through on the president’s order. And now the protest is trickling down into the high school level and even the classroom. But recently a Diary Queen location in Wisconsin has come under fire because they posted a sign in their restaurant that left liberals outraged. The sign states that “This restaurant is politically incorrect.” And then it proceeds to list off all the ways the restaurant is committed to being patriotic.
Because the sign offended many people, the franchise owner happily explained his reason for the sign.
“I felt the sign was appropriate to hang in terms of being transparent about the views of the owner and staff supporting God and country,” owner Kevin Scheunemann said.
The sign first went up about four years ago while Obama was still president. Apparently, a customer complained that the location as playing Christian music. And when the owner posted the sign, no one has brought up any politically incorrect issues again.
Recently, a guest from Oregon saw the sign and was offended. They snapped a picture of it and posted a message about it on Facebook.
The post received viral attention and was later deleted as the Oregonian came under fire.
One happy DQ customer expressed his relief that the post was deleted because he loves the sign.
“There are some people are agreeing with the sign (and that’s okay), but at the same time are making personal attacks toward the person who shared the picture and voiced her opinion (which is definitely not okay),” the Facebook user wrote.
Local Wisconsin business owners are happy that the DQ has a sign like this in the restaurant. They agree with Scheunemann’s decision post the patriotic sign. They say that the customer has a decision where to have dinner and if they disagree with the sign, they can leave.
“He posted it on the door so you see if before you walk in,” local bar owner April Serwe, said. “You don’t have to walk in if you don’t agree with it.”
The sign causing so much debate, reads:
This restaurant is politically incorrect. We have been known to say: Merry Christmas, Happy Easter, God Bless America, We salute and Honor the flag, Give thanks to our Troops, Police Officers and Firefighters, Give thanks for the USA and give free Sundaes to Veterans on Veterans Day.”
The sign then instructs outraged liberals on how they can complain about the patriotic sign.
“If this offends you, you are welcome to contact the owner at email@example.com and arranged a designated “snowflake safe space” a minimum 24 hours in advance.”
The sign then concludes with bold words that read: “In God We Trust.”
