Skip to comments.New Jersey (LARGEST) dealership pulls NFL ads over players’ protests
Posted on 10/03/2017 11:29:44 PM PDT by 11th_VA
The owner of one of New Jerseys largest car dealerships is pulling his television advertisements during NFL games due to players protests during the national anthem.
Steve Kalafer sells 16 brands of cars in dealerships in Flemington, Clinton and Princeton. He says that he is unhappy with the protests.
It personally was like a stomach blow to me. This did not need to happen, he says.
Kalafer says that customers have also been questioning what has been going on.
Customers and employees said, Are we supporting the NFL and its owners? I said, We cannot, Kalafer says.
The car dealer says that there is a place for protest and the quest for social justice. But he says that team owners should have come up with a cohesive policy on protests before it became so controversial.
The protests picked up steam after President Donald Trump said that any player who participated should be fired.
Kalafer, who is also part-owner of the Somerset Patriots minor league baseball team, says that he believes that NFL players could find more productive ways to make a social statement.
The goal is to go into communities with the resources of the [NFL] and partner with the players and do the work, he says.

BTTT for them.
Car dealers may be going up in my estimation, which isn’t really hard since they really could not go much lower.
However, it would take a lot to raise my opinion of them and this would be one thing that would do it.
here’s the NFL crybaby thug protest problem: they want to shove their hatred of whites, patriots, and Trump supporters in our face several times EVERY week. week after week.
A responsible man.
I’m getting a plane ticket and gonna go by a car from that man!
Does anyone know what the ratings were this past weekend?
Go for it, Steve. It’s about time that patriotic Americans fought back, and hard. We’re behind you 100%,
Let the boycotts begin!
The pie charts talk. That is why it took him so long.
There was a guy on reddit/The_Donald that said his family owned a large dealership group, and that they were going to be pulling their advertizing. I wish Id saved a link to that post.
...”This is at least the third dealership I’ve read about doing this.”...
It is so uplifting that these folks in business are still around and are willing to forego profit for greater integrity and safety in our society. It is great to know that these good people are out there protecting the back of our nation. “Evil wins when good people do nothing.”
More to follow. Boycotts work and work well when enough patriots join the effort. What more can be said about the horrid behavior of the black brats? Just one more example of why white flight occurs and the low IQ bullies are left to wallow in their own stupidity. These are the ultimate enemies of gratitude.

..and they expect their fans to pay for the abuse. Not a good business model except in the very small world of sadomasochism.
This is in Flemington/ Princeton, NJ. The guy has everything from Ford to BMW... and he is huge. Mamouth American Flag In the middle of his properties for as long as he’s been there. I was in the business back in the eighties and early 90’s when he was building it up.. good guy.
My prediction is his sales go up and he figures out he can save six figures a year not advertising with Comcast!
Good on’ya Steve!
Thank you Steve ,,,, you are a patriot .
Budweiser remains a sponsor .

Damn that capitalism!
If we had socialism everybody would buy the same car for the same price and there would be no griping.
Great!! I just told Bill Currie Ford that I’m not buying any cars from them and I told Publix I’m not grocery shopping there either...
I had sent an email to Papa Johns a couple weeks ago telling them I can’t buy their pizzas as long as they remain NFL sponsors. Which is a shame because I much prefer their products over Pizza Hut and Domino’s.
I’ve yet to hear back from them.
