Cop Hating Gym Owner Spoke. But So Did America. Here’s What They Said.
I’m about to show you that the America that you and I love still exists. But first – some context.
Earlier this summer, an anti-American, police and veteran hating gym owner from Atlanta shared with the world why he hates everyone in uniform. He made it crystal clear that anyone in uniform wasn’t welcome in his little communist factory that he calls a gym.
So I called him out in this letter.
In it, I mentioned three gyms we were partnering with to make a statement and to pay tribute to those officers and veterans that he spit upon. These gyms announced they are going to offer 30 days of free training to police and veterans who aren’t currently members.
But something unexpected happened when the letter exploded.
AMERICA happened, to be exact.
Gyms from all over the country reached out letting us know that they were going to match that donation locally and offer 30 days free to police and veterans in their own communities.
Many of them didn’t want the exposure…but below you’ll find a list of some gym owners who allowed us to publicize it.
Letters. Emails. Phone calls. They came in from across the country.
Men and women in uniform… their loved ones… their supporters. Thousands upon thousands of people reached out to tell us how THEY plan on countering that gym owner’s message… with small acts of love and kindness to others.
THIS is our America.
As for my team at The Silent Partner Marketing? Well…we made a big announcement. We’ve partnered with The Whiskey Patriots and have DOUBLED our donation to a million dollars in pledged services to police, veterans and other first responders.
And we’re excited that, as part of it, we’re going to continue to inspire others in partnership with Law Enforcement Today.
We’ve launched a new series called “Behind The Uniforms”. We’ll be highlighting the positive and the difficult stories that our first responders and our veterans have lived. We’ll make sure to share all of those stories on Facebook here as well – so keep following!
Brothers and sisters, America is staring into the face of the enemy right now. And we’ve been horrified to find that, in my cases, that enemy is our neighbor. Our coworker. Our relative.
But today, we stand together. In one unified voice we announce that we will always support those who hold the thin blue line…and those who protect our communities and our country.
This is our country and we WILL fight to defend it.
If any other gyms would like to be a part of this patriotic initiative… feel free to drop us a line through here.
And I’d ask that EVERYONE who stands behind our police, veterans and other first responders SHARE THIS!
