America Rejects Nike and the Jussie Smollett of the NFL
Whatever you might want to call the modern Democrat Party and the multinational corporations that prop it up, “American” is not a term that is appropriate for them any longer.
When a political party marches in lockstep and proclaims that the American flag, under which more people worldwide have been liberated from slavery than any other, is somehow a “symbol of slavery,” that party cannot be considered “American.” It’s something else entirely.
Nike joined with the Democrat Party in showing its contempt and scorn for America, by canceling a shoe it specifically created to honor Independence Day.
The shoe featured a small likeness of the “Betsy Ross” flag – the flag created by abolitionist and feminist hero Betsy Ross and featuring the 13 stars and stripes of the original American colonies.
Two of the Betsy Ross flags flew at Barack Obama’s last inauguration in 2013. There was nothing wrong with the Betsy Ross flag back then. But today, it has been declared a racist symbol of slavery and oppression that must be banned.
Who was it that decided that the Betsy Ross flag is racist?
Colin Kaepernick, the Jussie Smollett of the NFL. Kaepernick met privately with Nike officials and informed them that the Betsy Ross flag shoes were “problematic.”
So, Nike spit directly in the faces of all patriotic Americans by immediately canceling the shoe on the say-so of one very much-hated figure. The Democrats running for president in 2020 enthusiastically supported this.
Colin Kaepernick, for those who don’t remember, was a lazy and unimpressive football player who was mysteriously drafted into the NFL for some reason. When team officials realized what a drastic mistake that was, Kaepernick’s days were numbered and he knew it.
So, his girlfriend and Muslim Brotherhood operative Linda Sarsour helped Kaepernick adopt an ingenious plan to try to keep him in the NFL despite the fact that he was a crappy player: Declare that America’s inherent racism was to blame for Kaepernick’s inability to hack it in the NFL.
Like I said: He’s the Jussie Smollett of pro football.
Kaepernick started wearing socks with dead pigs on them depicting police officers. He started the “Take a Knee” protest to insult patriotic Americans.
The NFL’s initial unwillingness to put Kaepernick’s anti-American antics cost the league hundreds of millions of dollars as patriots tuned out.
I haven’t watched an NFL game since Kaepernick started his crusade against my country. I don’t even know who played in the last Super Bowl. Do you?
Is America really a nation with no pride for itself, its history, its people or its past? It looks like the Democrat Party is so out of touch that we should banish it from power forever in the next election.
The enemy of the people media refused to cover President Trump’s Independence Day celebration in 2019. It was too “Hitler-y.” Trump was being a dictator.
They didn’t want to display Trump white nationalism to the masses. Yet the crowds in DC were massive. It was a sea of red, white and blue… and people.
The sanctuary city where I live put up signs before the Fourth of July: There’s a $1,000 fine per firework if you’re caught attempting to illegally celebrate our nation. The city government even set up a special Soviet-style app that lets you narc on your neighbors if you see them setting off fireworks.
But on the night of the Fourth, our family had to wear earplugs while sitting on our front lawn and watching the night sky. It sounded like Beirut in the 1980s: Rolling thunder and artillery strikes from every direction.
Shock and awe. Red, white and blue lighting up the night sky for miles around in every direction. The noise and celebration didn’t even slow down until after midnight. A sheriff’s deputy cruised by the street in front of our house – with his window rolled down and his neck craning up at the sky.
“Aren’t you supposed to be writing tickets for this?” I yelled to him.
He gave us a shrug. “For what? I didn’t see a damn thing.” He was the only cop I saw the entire evening as my neighborhood blew through hundreds of thousands of dollars in illegal fireworks.
It was a giant, patriotic middle finger to the nanny-state authoritarians who want to try to take our holiday away from us. I couldn’t help but smile reading the paper the next day. County-wide, police issued only seven citations for fireworks.
I know two things for certain after this most recent July Fourth celebration.
The first is that the Jussie Smolletts in our midst aren’t going to win. The second is that I need a new pair of shoes – and they definitely won’t be Nikes.
