Ironically, the Left has become everything they used to hate: Big Government, Big Business, and the Media. Now all three are in bed together to promote immorality, racism, civil unrest, undermine our police and military, advance a socialist worldview, and discredit President Trump and his administration.
The latest example is NIKE, Inc. who has teamed up with failed QB Colin Kaepernick in a new national ad campaign. Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything. Really? Seriously? Kaepernick has not sacrificed anything.
There are actual heroes who have played in the NFL, and for whom the advertising slogans used by Nike in this particular campaign would better fit than Colin Kaepernick.
For instance, Pat Tillman.
The Nike ad immediately sparked controversy, with many critics rallying around a different former NFL player: Pat Tillman. Tillman died by friendly fire in Afghanistan in 2004, two years after he left the NFL to enlist in the military.
Among the people tweeting about Tillman was Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia, who posted a photo of the former NFL player in Arizona Cardinals gear, with the caption: “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”
Unfortunately for the shoe maker, the stock market has responded unkindly to their gamble. Clearly, Nike Inc. was willing to risk the inevitable backlash, which has already begun among some sports fans — #BoycottNike and videos of fans burning Nike gear are already trending online — to promote Kaepernick’s controversial message.
The truth is that there are men and women who believed in the very thing that Colin Kaepernick despises: America. They believed in it so much that they sacrificed everything.
