Unlike many tolerant individuals in the U.S. there are some who immediately loose it when someone disrespects our country or the anthem or the flag, and is ready to take rigorous measures to prove that. Following the recent kneeling protests by NFL players, our country became once again a test subject to foreign world powers who clearly want us divided.
Well, they would be surprised to find out how many Americans there are who are willing to do everything for their country, ones who want to keep the respect of the national symbols alive.

A Chattanooga man has been reportedly fired from his job after sitting during the national anthem at an event.
Fox17.com reported: Tyler Chancellor worked for 9Round, a kickboxing gym in Chattanooga. His termination comes during a national conversation about respect for the American Flag.
The company said Chancellor was in training to become a coach at their gym. He said he’d only been on the payroll for a little more than a week before the owner told him not to come back.Tyler Chancellor says he was invited to sit with his coworkers in the VIP section of the Camp Jordan arena Saturday. On Monday, he said his employer fired him because he sat during the National Anthem.
“Me being a minority in this society, I chose to stand up for what I believe in- well not actually stand up, but sit down for what I believe in,” Chancellor said.

Chancellor said Saturday was the first time he’d been present for the playing of the national anthem since the controversy between the NFL and President Donald Trump began.
“I wasn’t the only one sitting down,” Chancellor said. “There were other minorities in the stands sitting down.”
He said no one said anything to him that night, and he didn’t know anything was wrong until he met with his boss Monday morning.
“She said because you sat down, you were a part of a 9Round event, and you sat during the national anthem,” Chancellor said. “We no longer want to continue business with you. There was no sugar coating.”
