Julian Whittington, Bossier Parish Sheriff, has announced that his police operation would no longer be using Ford cars. The Louisiana officer, and indeed his entire law enforcement team, where disgusted after Ford praised the NFL kneelers, who are protesting against the National Anthem.
Colin Kaepernick, when asked to explain this form of protest said, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” Numerous wealthy, black, millionaires in the NFL immediately started following Kaepernick’s lead.
In late September – during the heat of the Anthem Protests – Ford Motor Company, a powerful and wealthy corporate sponsor of the NFL, released the statement, “We respect individuals’ rights to express their views, even if they are not ones we share. That’s part of what makes America great.”
In a letter to the Hixon Ford Dealership last Wednesday Wittington wrote, “recent events surrounding the NFL, its players and their audacity to thumb their collective noses at the American flag, the American military, as well as their obvious disdain for the profession of law enforcement in general, forces me to take a stand.”
Whittington in his letter to Hixson Ford also said that his office had a “pleasurable business relationship with your company,” and that he also hopes that the dealership will encourage the Ford Motor Company to cease advertising with the NFL until NFL management demands from its players to “show proper respect for our nation’s colors.”
“Yes, the NFL players have a right to protest as they deem necessary, but we, the Bossier Sheriff’s Office and taxpayers of Bossier Parish, have a right to spend our money elsewhere,” he wrote. “I realize that Ford Motor Co. has made this decision and may not necessarily be supported by your company, but you are our dealer.”
As per the information provided by the BPSO, in 2016 and 2017 the sheriff’s office purchased a total of 29 vehicles from Hixson Autoplex, spending a massive $747,132.
These vehicles included 21 Ford Police Interceptors, four Ford Tauruses, a Ford F-150, two Ford F-250s and a Ford Explorer.
Whittington also told Hixson Ford that he would also send copies of this letter to Louisiana’s 63 other sheriffs, encouraging them to do same.
However, it is no surprise that Ford Motor Company praised the offensive actions of these wanna-be activists in the NFL. The Ford Foundation, in coordination with George Soros, has given millions to Black Lives Matter groups – in order to fund their rioting. In fact, the Ford Foundation has a long, and extensive history of supporting radical leftist causes.
