This guys should be immediately unemployed.
An ignorant announcer at a high school football game in Alabama believes Americans who want to take part in Colin Kaepernick style protest should be shot — literally right where they stand.
“If you don’t want to stand for the national anthem, you can line up over there by the fence and let our military personnel take a few shots at you since they’re taking shots for you,” said Pastor Allen Joyner, who announces games at McKenzie High School in Butler County.
According to Denise Crowley-Whitfield — a Facebook user whose account is now deactivated, the crowd went “crazy cheering” after the comments were made per Al.com.
Butler County Schools Superintendent Amy Bryan spoke out against Joyner’s comments in a statement to AL.com.
“Patriotism should be a part of school events but threats of shooting people who aren’t patriotic, even in jest, have no place at a school,” she wrote in an email. “Threats of violence are a violation of school policy and certainly not condoned by the school board.”
There’s still no word on whether Pastor Joyner would suffer any actions taken against him.
