The One Time Nike Actually Got It Right Might Surprise You

Good advice seldom comes from any source. A good aphorism is powerful, regardless of its origin. But an abstract truth must be rightly applied to generate its potential for change or effect. Consider Nike.

Anyone staying apprised of the left-leaning Portland, Oregon-based company Nike is aware of its recent campaign to promote China. “Nike is a brand that is of China and for China,” boasts Nike CEO John Donahue, who supported his statement as an act of worship to his god mammon. This certainly comes as no surprise. After all, Nike is the company that glorifies such anti-American losers as Colin Kaepernick, who started the “take a knee” movement to protest racism and bad cops. What did that do for Nike’s image? What did it do for American sports? 

Next on Nike’s list of pandered buffoons is LeBron James, another “victim” of the American dream who feels that all police officers are thugs, out to get everyone, especially Blacks. He has no problem using his celebrity status to make this point, much to the shame of all conservative Americans who actually respect the Blue.

Whether or not such radical politically charged athletes as Kaepernick and James will ultimately hurt Nike’s financial status remains to be seen. What’s certain is that political activism is no longer off limits in the sports arena, or for a Nike endorsement.

Of course, sports has suffered for it. Taking me out to the old ball game just hasn’t been the same since the onset of political campaigns on the field. The only sports divide in the stadiums ought to be between the home and visitors teams. Now you look left and right in the stands and have no idea who’s supporting what sociopolitical goals—and that seems to be the more driving issue. Field goals be damned. Team rivalry takes a back seat to the rivalry between straight and LGBT, between good cop/bad cop, and between Black and White. Thank you, Nike! So says China. Don’t think the CCP isn’t capitalizing on this psychological warfare. They are.

As long as Nike promotes division by sponsoring political extremists with big mouths and small hearts, Americans will express their distaste for the new sport of diversion from what once was the pure fun of the game. Being reminded before every game that woke athletes who glorify evil dictators and cop killers makes me angry. My love for sports does not supersede my love for God and country. I would (and did) dump sports entertainment in a flash to avoid this lame virtue signaling. Their hypocrisy does trump all their lame efforts at an ever-shallow morality. After all, if civil liberty is really the issue, then why are not these mindless radical sports heroes calling out Nike for its use of sweatshops and slave labor in the manufacturing of Nike products? All we hear is silence from these pseudo-moral vagabonds.

When Nike dived into the liberal camp, they made a choice to denigrate the American flag and the real people who make the wheels of America turn. Now, they even braggingly proclaim it by supporting a Communist enemy.

Justice has been served Kaepernick: he is an ex-NFL quarterback. Some may regard his misfortune as a heroic banner, claiming, “He sacrificed everything for the cause!” If this is true, then I must deem such sacrifice a pathetic waste. The cause was unpatriotic! Kneeling for the national anthem is not okay. Defiling our men and women in Blue is pitiful. Therefore, Nike’s decision to sponsor such spoiled children does not sit well with all true constitutional conservatives. Nike made a bad choice. They obviously thought it was worth the risk, however—as liberals now make up no small portion of the US population. They may even gain financially from the move. Who knows. Still, it was a wrong move. Standing for what is right by a righteous standard means many people will never purchase another Nike product again. Count me in! People of genuine character always act on principles.

But even from our enemies, we can glean a few words of wisdom now and then.

The word Nike is defined from the Greek language; it means “victory.” It’s a good name for an athletic apparel company. We all like the taste of victory. Despite Nike’s political faux pas of glamorizing woke liberal athletes, the company did actually get it right in their motto: Just Do It! Of course, that’s a pretty open statement. Jumping from a plane without a parachute has consequences. You shouldn’t just do it.

But if we determine that something really needs to be done, then the best course of action is to … just do it! This is awesome advice when it comes to unmasking, refusing the experimental COVID shot, and opposing the Marxist-Socialist movement in America. Fighting open borders and drug and human trafficking, as well as opposing tyrants and critical race theory, is necessary business. Exposing evil needs to be done without hesitation!

For that reason, I can only conclude that this China-loving, money-serving, woke company must be shunned forever. Just do it! Thank you, Nike.

To Conquer the Enemy Within Called FEAR – Within Our Own Hearts

To Conquer the Enemy Within Called FEAR – Within Our Own Hearts

The art of self-sacrifice is now all but lost. But it needn’t be. That’s just what America needs right now. Self-sacrifice. We must call upon the Mighty Warrior who granted us favor in the dawn’s early light, The Great Warrior King who strengthens the soul against all enemies. And we must avow to conquer the enemy within—the enemy called fear within our own hearts…

Covid-19 and Tuberculosis at the Southern Border

Covid-19 and Tuberculosis at the Southern Border

It Isn’t Immigration; It’s a Government-Sponsored Invasion. Do you know how many people have come across the border illegally so far this year? According to the U.S. Customs and Border Control, it’s 1.1 million people — and the numbers are rising every hour of every day. Why would the Democrats do this to American citizens? Why unleash the death and destruction of COVID-19 and Tuberculosis?

We Have Entered A New Dark Age

We Have Entered A New Dark Age

America is in the hands of a “Ship of Fools,” driven by unelected, inexperienced Marxist indoctrinated young bureaucrats supported by aging, shelf-life expired elected politicians, all convinced they know better than us how to live happily in their socialist utopia and are willing to prove it by the threat of violence and fear of imprisonment. That’s our coming new Dark Age!

The Haunting Microcosm of the Afghanistan War

The Haunting Microcosm of the Afghanistan War

Tyranny has abounded, it has infiltrated our battlefields and our communities, it is mentioned in the “Afghanistan Papers” dated December 9, 2019, that in interviews, key figures in the war said Washington tolerated the worst offenders, warlords, drug traffickers, and defense contractors because they were allies of the United States, and that the U.S. government failed to confront a more distressing reality…

Our Social Contract With the Federal Government

Our Social Contract With the Federal Government

What, specifically, do you want government to look like, in different areas, and how much of your income are you willing to give up to pay for it? With healthcare, if the government could provide it universally for another 20% of everything you make – above and beyond what you already pay in taxes – are you cool with that?

The US Capitol Police Are Becoming America’s New Secret Stasi

The US Capitol Police Are Becoming America’s New Secret Stasi

This seems outrageous if not downright un-Constitutional. Given the Dem’s blatant bias shielding real criminals like BLM and Antifa while treating those involved in the Jan 6th event with the harshest possible punishment, including months of solitary confinement, for simple acts of trespassing, one can only imagine where this new law enforcement overreach will lead…

Critical Race Theory is Designed to Take America Down

Critical Race Theory is Designed to Take America Down

CRT is a disgusting academic discipline, initially pervasive only in universities and remote academic journals. Still based on Marxism, it has since spread through government agencies, public school systems, teacher training programs, and corporate human resource departments in the form of “diversity training.” Public policy and school curricula have now been ensnared…

Defund Public Schools!

Defund Public Schools!

Public schools are a government monopoly of school funding. While private schools are allowed to operate, the parents have to pay double: property taxes to the school board and tuition money to the private school. Public schools are a government monopoly, and whether you receive services or not, the government offers no refunds for your tax money…
