Yesterday, after several players for the San Francisco 49ers disrespected our nation during the national anthem prior to their game against the Indianapolis Colts, Vice President Mike Pence WALKED OUT of the football game, saying, “I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.”

It’s time for patriotic Americans to boldly take a STAND! We are asking you to sign Grassfire’s “I STAND” petition, modeled after Vice President Pence’s statement yesterday.

I am signing this “I STAND FOR AMERICA” petition saying I STAND for our nation, I stand with our soldiers, and I will always STAND for our Flag and our National Anthem. I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag or our National Anthem. I call on the NFL (and other sports leagues) and its players to honor our flag and our nation.

Will you join Vice President Pence and patriotic Americans across the country who are drawing a line in the sand and saying, “I STAND FOR AMERICA”? Go here now to have your name included.

It is quite possible that these protestors just awakened a sleeping giant by reminding us of the solemn meaning of our anthem. When we stand for the anthem or display the flag, we are actively making a statement of our support for this nation!

That’s why we’re inviting you to sign the “I STAND For America” statement by going here.

+ + STAND For America Gear!I stand gear.

We also just created some awesome “I Stand” t-shirts for our GrassfireGear store so you can show your STAND for America wherever you go.

These new shirts are available right now! We have five different designs to choose from. Go here to see Grassfire’s patriotic “I Stand” t-shirts.

Thanks for taking a stand!

    Can you believe how many people who hate our nation booed during the anthem?

    There are not many greater signs of disrespect than booing.

    Sounds like Pence is disingenuous as he darn-well knew there would be at least some player or other not standing. Obviously he planned ahead of time to leave.
