Farmer Who Plowed Anthem Message On Field Gets Nod From President

A farmer in North Dakota has a big 850-acre field, as well as a lot of time on his hands now that harvest season is over. He decided to plow a political message into his field. Only people who fly overhead are going to see it, but a photo of his message got back to President Donald Trump.

Gene Hanson has a firm position on the National Anthem: he's all for it. He recently plowed a pro-anthem message into his bean field.

"We stand for the National Anthem," the message read. This crop-circle style art is so massive that it can only be seen from above. Thankfully, Hanson has a plane so he can zoom over and see his own handiwork.

The message was in response to the big controversy over the NFL and the "The Star-Spangled Banner." The controversy heated after the president said everyone on every NFL team should be standing or should be fired. Hanson backed that sentiment.

The image of the message actually got to President Trump, and the president tweeted an article about it.

"Thank you Gene Hanson — a GREAT American (and farmer) who is standing up for our flag, our anthem, and our country!" the president's tweet read.

Hanson said to Fox & Friend's hosts that he means no disrespect to people who feel passionately about protesting serious issues like racism and police brutality. He says he just believes honoring the flag is the right thing to do.

"I didn't think it was anything about black, white or brown, Democrat or Republican. It was all about honoring our flag and our country," the farmer explained. "There's a lot of people that died for it, so I thought that it should be honored."

Hanson apparently loves to put his political messages out on the field. Previously, he's plowed such phrases as 'Drain the Swamp', 'Trump', 'GOP Get your act together,' and 'Blue Lives Matter'. After the music artist Prince died, Hanson even plowed the unpronounceable symbol that Prince temporarily used in place of his name.

Fox & Friends hosts encouraged him to plow their show’s name into his field, and the conservative farmer thought that would be a good idea.

Funny messages that can only be seen from above are occasionally caught by people flying overhead. Thankfully, now that we always have cameras in our back pockets, they’re getting spread around so others can see them.

One prankster in Milwaukee, Wisconsin who lives near an airport went up to his big, black tar roof with some white paint. He wrote out the message, "Welcome to Cleveland." No doubt some Wisconsin-bound flyers just waking up after a nap are pretty confused by that sign.

A New Jersey farmer made his corn maze for the fall a tribute to New York Yankee Derek Jeter one year.

One farmer made a little money by letting a local pizza company advertise on his field. They carved the logo and store name into the field, which is just a mile away from an airport runway.
