I’m going to say this right at the start – it’s time to boycott ALL Nike products!!!!
Here is why?
Remember Colin Kaepernick?
He was a star quarterback for the University of Nevada who drafted in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL draft by the San Francisco 49ers. He only attempted 5 passes in 2011, but Kaepernick played more from 2012 through the 2016 season.
At the start of a 2016 preseason game, Kaepernick took to a knee in protest during the playing of the National Anthem, which led to a number of other NFL players to follow suit in disgracing America, our military, law enforcement and millions of football fans.
Kaepernick was an active Christian before he started dating Nessa Diab, a black Muslim activist. Instead of standing up for his own beliefs, he fell hook-line-and-sinker for Nessa’s activist rantings. His protests led to the end of his professional football career after the 49ers released him and no other team would pick up his contract.
Kaepernick’s anti-American actions nearly led to the bankruptcy of the National Football League. By the 2017 season, so many fans had stopped attending and watching NFL games or buying NFL merchandise that some stadiums found it difficult to fill their seats with more than just a few thousand fans. Tickets to some games ran as low as $3 all because of anti-American protest that Kaepernick started. I’m one of those fans who stopped watching NFL football, as I’ve not watched an NFL game since the NFL owners were too spineless to stand up for their country and stop the anti-American protests.
Even though Kaepernick is no longer playing professional football, his hasn’t lost his anti-American influence as displayed by this report on Nike:
Anthem-kneeling ex-quarterback Colin Kaepernick is back in the news.
Because of his close ties with Nike (remember that “sacrifice” campaign he did?), Colin got the shoe and apparel giant to pull their Fourth of July-themed shoes before they went on sale.
Because all it takes is just one social justice warrior to ruin the fun for everyone, these days.
Fox News reported it this way:
Just don’t do it.
That was the message ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick delivered to Nike over the planned release of a USA-themed sneaker, which featured a Betsy Ross flag on the heel, according to a report.
Nike nixed the released of the Air Max 1 USA after having already sent the sneakers to retailers because the protesting quarterback said he felt the use of the Betsy Ross flag was offensive and carried slavery connotations, sources told The Wall Street Journal.
When will this kind of insanity ever end?
Using Kaepernick’s logic, Congress should outlaw the sale of any kind of chain, since chains were used to bind slaves. Rope should be banned also because slaves were often tied up and sometimes hung with a rope. We should ban the entire southeastern United States because those were the states that supported and fought for slavery. Actually, we should ban the Democratic Party because that was the party of the Confederate States. Since most slaves were black, perhaps they should be banned as well.
Absurd? Yes, but so are the actions of Nike and their listening to one weak-minded radical anti-American activist.
Like I said, it’s time to boycott ALL Nike products!!!
