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.

Reparations In Disguise

Reparations In Disguise

These racial give-aways are “reparations” by another name. “Hey Mr. & Ms. Ethnic,” say the Marxists now in power, “if you keep voting Democrat, we will keep giving you money and free stuff. You’ll get your reparations. We just call it ‘racial equity’ and other code names.” Marxist give-aways and bribes to groups based on ethnicity…

3 Stories of Heroism in a World of Tyranny

3 Stories of Heroism in a World of Tyranny

The kind of courage it takes to stand up for our U.S. Constitutional and inalienable rights was witnessed throughout America and beyond during this oppressive lockdown. To highlight their stories is not enough. We’ve got to learn not only why they stood up and what kind of person it takes to do such a thing, but how critical their fight was in the grand scheme of survival from tyranny…

Bernie Sanders:  A Free Market Flake

Bernie Sanders: A Free Market Flake

A centrally planned economy could do what the majority want, but this form of ‘democracy’ would do only what the majority want, completely ignoring the minority. In contrast, a free market listens to everyone. Donald Trump was hated primarily because he was moving us away from fascism. He was hated because he threatened the gravy train of government corruption – the system that put 1/2 of all wealth within 100 miles of Washington D.C. Trump was working in the interests of the people, against fascists ingrained in and around our government…

McCullough on Asia Pacific Today Breaks Through the Dark Cloud of Oppressive Misinformation

Dr. Peter McCullough joins Mike Ryan on Asia Pacific Today, as McCullough brings up many issues, including the dangers of COVID-19 vaccines and how unsafe they really are for Australians and citizens of the world. The liability of those pressuring people to take vaccines grows with every passing day as more post-jab injuries are being reported. The Delta variant makes a mockery of the vaccines…

Meeting Biden’s Climate Goals Would Cripple America

Meeting Biden’s Climate Goals Would Cripple America

In these circumstances, climate policies that impair western countries’ economies will succeed only in accelerating their deindustrialization, as the affected firms move their investments and operations to more welcoming countries in Asia. Activists may welcome this as enabling a redistribution of global income and wealth, promoting what they consider social justice. That has little to do with the climate…

White Supremacy Doesn’t Permeate the U.S. Armed Forces, Poor Leadership Does

White Supremacy Doesn’t Permeate the U.S. Armed Forces, Poor Leadership Does

The generals and admirals running our military nowadays seem much more concerned about political correctness and protecting their careers than in leading men and women in battle. Far too many have become the “Perfumed Princes” that we’ve been told about. More worried about being politically correct, or even worse “woke”, than in protecting America and winning wars…

Assault on ‘California Dreaming’ of an Assault Weapons Ban

Assault on ‘California Dreaming’ of an Assault Weapons Ban

First, the good news. A federal judge has found that California’s assault weapons ban is unconstitutional. Now the bad news. Judge Benitez did not so much find that you have an inalienable right to keep and bear arms, but that the Attorney General of California did not provide a sufficiently compelling government interest in restricting that right when it comes to what California calls “assault weapons.”

Taliban Will Rule Afghanistan

Taliban Will Rule Afghanistan

There are estimated over 50,000 Afghans and families who have been helping the US forces for the last 20 years as interpreters, drivers, assistants, etc., who will be slaughtered the instant the Taliban take over for having helped the Kuffar/Infidels. These people are being betrayed by Biden’s administration because of their own incompetence and total lack of understanding of the realities of Islam…

The Democrat War on National, Domestic and Personal Security

The Democrat War on National, Domestic and Personal Security

This military mismatch increases the risk of miscalculation and war, as China seeks regional military dominance. Russia, Iran, and lesser powers like North Korea, also threaten allies and the U.S. homeland with missiles and cyber hacking. Team Biden reestablished Obama’s “catch-and-release” policy, wasting ICE agent time, efforts, and morale as they were reassigned to attending to the needs of unaccompanied children delivered by coyote human and narcotics traffickers…

Why Our Global Corporations Turn Against Us

Why Our Global Corporations Turn Against Us

Globalists Corporations do not care about the nation(s) they reside in. It’s all about running the profits game, and for Coke and Delta, et al., the United States is just another franchise in the world’s shopping mall. Think, the New World Order, a multinational conglomeration of producers and consumers, with corporations in charge as a One World Government.
