On Monday September 3rd Nike unveiled Colin Kaepernick as the new face of Nike’s ad. The ad states “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything” with a picture of Colin Kaepernick’s face.
Colin Kaepernick has been out of the NFL going on his second season because he is not a good quarterback, however the uneducated about football like to claim it’s because of his National Anthem protest. Colin Kaepernick famously said why he protested back in 2016, “I’m not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”
According to Bloomberg early trading Tuesday, Nike’s shares dropped by nearly 4 percent, “the biggest intraday slide in five months.”
“Nike shares slipped as much as 3.9 percent to $79 as of 9:31 a.m. Tuesday in New York — the biggest intraday slide in five months. They had climbed 31 percent this year through Friday’s close.”
Nike had to understand there would be backlash for propping up a disgusting piece of humane debris, which did lead to a #boycottNike movement. This movement has many video’s showing fans burning their Nike gear once the announced the Kaepernick ad. Turns out there are many people that still love this great free nation.
“The fallout was no surprise but Nike may be betting that the upside of a Kaepernick endorsement is worth angering conservative Americans and supporters of President Donald Trump,” writes Bloomberg.
It seems leftist companies have not learned to stop attacking Conservatives and Trump supporters. Maybe Nike CEO should call up Dicks Sporting Goods and ask them how their business has been doing since they turned on us.
Colin Kaepernick went into detail of his divisive protest.
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
He expanded on his accusations a few days later. “There is police brutality — people of color have been targeted by police,” he said. “That’s a large part of it. [The police] are government officials. They are put in place by the government so that’s something that the country has to change. There are things we can do to hold them more accountable. Make those standards higher … You have people who practice law, lawyers, who go to school for 8 years, but you can be a cop in 6 months. You don’t have to do the same amount of training as a cosmetologist. I mean someone with a curling iron has more education and training than people who have a gun. That’s insane.”
Let’s be clear and honest Colin Kaepernick was not protesting for civil Justice, reality is he was protesting for Socialism/Communism.
During 2016 Colin Kaepernick wore a Fidel Castro shirt praising the Cuban Socialist Dictator.
“One thing that Fidel Castro did do is they have the highest literacy rate because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system, which we do not do here, even though we’re fully capable of doing that,” Kaepernick said.
“We do break up families here. That’s what mass incarceration is. That was the foundation of slavery. So our country has been based on that as well as the genocide of Native Americans.”
And these are the exact reasons why we should all join the boycott Nike because clearly Nike established they hate America and want us to be Cuba.
