The One Time Nike Actually Got It Right Might Surprise You

by | Jul 17, 2021 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

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.

Eliminate Minorities: A Call to the Republican Party

Eliminate Minorities: A Call to the Republican Party

Generations of people have been erroneously convinced that they are not a part of the American experience. They feel they do not have a place in this country. Our nation is intentionally being fractured by evildoers on the left and is on the verge of breaking. The constant white vs. black mantra the left continues to pound is intentionally designed to…

Empty Shelves Expose Intolerable China Dependence

Empty Shelves Expose Intolerable China Dependence

These are the worst delays in modern history, with the price per container having already risen to as much as 10 times costs before the pandemic. China’s expansive agenda seeks to dominate such fields as artificial intelligence, bio-medicine, and the dominance of space. In the process, the Communist regime employs its power to restrain and even imprison the country’s entrepreneurs that defy its authority…

This Week In COVID: How To Secure Your Exemptions

Too many people have suffered unnecessarily, leading to their slaughter by a small group of people infected with an insatiable, and seemingly pathological, need for profit and power. They want to create a world of darkness and despair where individual freedom and happiness are unattainable ideals. I want to create a world where love, logic, and light reign supreme…

Connecting The Dots Through Worldwide Chaos!

Connecting The Dots Through Worldwide Chaos!

Some would call this the “Great Awakening,” and others would call it the “Global Destruction of Humanity,” but for those Watchmen who connect the dots, they will proclaim that we are living through the Biblical times of Revelations, or good-vs-evil. This is a time of Revelations and Revolution, a time of great transformation…

Taking Back America Starts in Virginia

Taking Back America Starts in Virginia

Far too much damage has been done to our country in less than a year. Republicans will have much to do to repair the real damage, as well as the damage done to our national psyche. The good ole boy system of slapping each other on the back as they continue lining each other’s pockets must end. Our country is at stake…

Free College and The $20 Big Mac

Free College and The $20 Big Mac

We are headed for a New World Order where college will be ‘free,’ but it’ll be $20 for a Big Mac, $10 for a gallon of gas, and it will cost $1,000 per month to heat your house in the winter. On top of that, you will have to pay 60% of your income for that ‘free’ college, making you glad it is ‘free,’ and making you sorry that nobody can afford a Big Mac anymore…

The Game is On, Let’s Keep The Ball Rolling

Youngkin’s message of real Americanism to disgusted Virginia voters addressed their deep fears on the socialization of America, the Marxist indoctrination of their children in public schools, and this racist CRT nonsense. Clearly, he struck home. We must give a shout-out to the Louden County School Board for their Soviet-style handling of…

DHS: “Heightened Threat Environment Across the US”… For Who?

DHS: “Heightened Threat Environment Across the US”… For Who?

That DHS bulletin included those “motivated by a range of issues, including anger over COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 election results, and police use of force.” Also included potential DVEs individuals in “opposition to immigration.” The worry, so said the DHS, is that these and similar “drivers” could cause certain DVEs to attack “elected officials and government facilities.”

Free Speech, Free Enterprise, and Thought Control

Free Speech, Free Enterprise, and Thought Control

The Facebook phenomenon has been preempted by the dark forces of progressivism as dangerous to their new philosophy for American happiness, Marxism. As politically correct as it has become, as government demands, Facebook is now voluntarily censuring Americans on Progressive governments’ behalf. But, they still must maintain some measure of earning profit despite more demands to control the free speech of Americans…

Compassion Abuse is Weakening America

Compassion Abuse is Weakening America

A significant reason for the moral rot is the indiscriminate abuse of compassion. We Americans have had the Christian virtue of compassion hi-jacked by Progressive Socialists for their own agenda: producing dependent drones who unthinkingly obey the “sugar daddy” socialist state which showers goodies on them indiscriminately in the name of compassion…

More Like the Corleone House than a Court of Law

More Like the Corleone House than a Court of Law

The government in Washington, D.C. is now filled with criminals. Going to federal court for a redress of grievance today seems more like going to the Corleone house than a court of law. Your fate is no longer decided by the laws of the nation, but by the opinions of oligarchs in black robes. As Abraham Lincoln said: The people — the people — are the rightful masters of both Congresses, and courts — not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it…
