Alabama High School Football Announcer Thinks Anthem Protesters Like Kaepernick ‘Should Be Shot’

Can you say unemployed?

On Friday night, an Alabama high school football announcer thought it was a good idea to give his personal opinion to thousands of people in attendance—that opinion being that National Anthem protesters like Colin Kaepernick should be shot. Not only is this guy a football announcer, but he’s a local pastor.

“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.

A Facebook user named Denise Crowley-Whitfield, who has since deactivated her account after her post went super viral, posted about the incident and wrote that the crowd went “crazy cheering”.

According to AL.com, the post was shared over 4,700 times and all of the comments were positive, including one from the pastor’s daughter, who had this to say:

“That’s my daddy! I’m so proud of the man he is and that he is not afraid to stand up for what he believes in.”
