WFAY-AM, broadcasting out of Fayetteville, NC, normally carries East Carolina University football games. No more, at least for a while.
WFAY-AM in Fayetteville announced Tuesday that it would not carry the Pirates’ game at South Florida scheduled for Saturday. The move comes after the school said 19 band members kneeled during the anthem before the game against Central Florida….
Of course, the band members have a free speech right to protest and to disrespect our flag and our national anthem in the course of that protest.
But—and this is a point too many on the Left choose to ignore—the rest of us have the same free speech right to protest the protest and/or its technique, and to take action in counter to that protest.
Good for WFAY, and good for the station’s sponsors, who agreed with the decision.
