Chances are really good that you’ll love the commercial below.
It’s from Nine Line Apparel and was rejected by CBS for play during the Super Bowl.
It begins with, “Don’t ask if your loyalty is crazy. Ask if it’s crazy enough.”
Benghazi survivor U.S. Marine Mark Geist narrates the ad:
“For those who kneel, they fail to understand that they can kneel, that they can protest, that they can despise what I stand for, even hate the truth that I speak, but they can only do that because I am crazy enough.”

What’s not to love about this incredible commercial? CBS is wrong on this.
Please check out Nine Line Apparel online and buy from them if you can. Show the misinformed powers-that-be at CBS that they’re wrong on this one.
Nine Line Apparel CEO Tyler Merritt ripped the rejection of his ad.
“CBS’s purported reason for rejecting a Super Bowl commercial that extols patriotism is totally out of bounds. Let’s call this what it is: a blatant attempt to censor a message that their politically correct executives find offensive. We urge Americans who believe it’s important to show respect for our flag and national anthem to join us in calling out this offensive bias. It’s time to give a penalty flag to CBS.”
