Colin Kaepernick may have just single-handedly destroyed Nike’s brand in a way they never saw coming

Nike ignited an uproar when they made the cowardly decision to pull their sneakers featuring an early version of the American flag.

They made this decision when Colin Kaepernick called the flag on the shoe “offensive.”

But Kaepernick’s demands may have cost Nike millions in a way they never saw coming.

Once Nike announced their decision to take the patriotic shoes off the market, people were furious.

Many Americans were upset that Nike was afraid to show even a little patriotism, especially during the week of Independence Day.

That’s when Arizona Governor Doug Ducey threw the hammer down.

The Governor tweeted that he is ordering the Arizona Commerce Authority to remove all financial incentives for Nike’s manufacturing plant in the state.

ABC 15 Arizona reports:

In a series of tweets early Tuesday, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey announced that he has ordered the Arizona Commerce Authority to withdraw all financial incentive dollars to encourage Nike to add a manufacturing plant in the Valley.

Ducey’s decision stems from a Wall Street Journal report that said former NFL quarterback-turned-social justice activist Colin Kaepernick convinced Nike to pull its sneakers featuring an early American flag commonly known as the Betsy Ross flag. Kaepernick reportedly found the shoe to be offensive.

It was not immediately clear if the move, which Ducey announced on Twitter at 2 a.m., would derail Nike’s plans for a $185 million factory in Goodyear. Ducey’s tweets were published hours after the Goodyear City Council approved more than $2 million in tax breaks over five years, but the governor has no control over those incentives.

Colin Kaepernick’s demand that Nike pull the shoe over it featuring the Betsy Ross flag proves his anti-American protests were never about police brutality.

His protest has been and always will be about disrespecting the American flag and what it stands for.

And Nike disgracefully chose to side with Colin Kaepernick.

This may end up being a public relations mistake they cannot recover from.

Not only will they lose millions of dollars in Arizona, but many consumers may choose not to purchase their shoes ever again.

Nike’s decision to stand by an NFL failure to remain politically correct will cost them millions of dollars.

What do you think? Should Nike drop their relationship with Colin Kaepernick?

Kaepernick just got owned by Ted Cruz when he tried to bash America on the 4th of July

162

Colin Kaepernick hates America.

There’s no ifs, ands, or buts about it.

But the washed up quarterback just got owned by Ted Cruz when he tried to bash America on the 4th of July.

Kaepernick pulled a quote out of context from famed abolitionist Frederick Douglas to bash America on Twitter.

That’s when Senator Ted Cruz fired back a barrage of facts about the speech and the man Kaepernick was quoting out of context:

You quote a mighty and historic speech by the great abolitionist Frederick Douglass, but, without context, many modern readers will misunderstand. Two critical points: This speech was given in 1852, before the Civil War, when the abomination of slavery still existed. Thanks to Douglass and so many other heroes, we ended that grotesque evil and have made enormous strides to protecting the civil rights of everybody.

Douglass was not anti-American; he was, rightly and passionately, anti-slavery. Indeed, he concluded the speech as follows: “Allow me to say, in conclusion, notwithstanding the dark picture I have this day presented, of the state of the nation, I do not despair of this country. There are forces in operation, which must inevitably, work the downfall of slavery. ‘The arm of the Lord is not shortened,’ and the doom of slavery is certain. I, therefore, leave off where I began, with hope. While drawing encouragement from ‘the Declaration of Independence,’ the great principles it contains, and the genius of American Institutions, my spirit is also cheered by the obvious tendencies of the age.”

Cruz concluded by telling everyone to read the entire speech.

But Cruz wasn’t the only one to slam Kaepernick’s shameless attempt to misrepresent Frederick Douglass’ views for his own anti-American crusade.

National Review online editor Charles C.W. Cooke launched his own barrage to add further context to Douglass’ speech and views on America.

Now, take the Constitution according to its plain reading, and I defy the presentation of a single pro-slavery clause in it. On the other hand it will be found to contain principles and purposes, entirely hostile to the existence of slavery .. Interpreted as it ought to be interpreted, the Constitution is a GLORIOUS LIBERTY DOCUMENT. Read its preamble, consider its purposes. Is slavery among them? Is it at the gateway? or is it in the temple? It is neither…

When it comes down to it, Kaepernick isn’t protesting the flag or America because of perceived problems of police brutality or racism.

He and his followers simply hate America to its core.

Oreo teamed up with this Leftist organization to further brainwash children

103

America’s best-selling cookie is getting back into the culture war.

This time they’re deliberately targeting children.

And conservative consumers were outraged when they saw what the company was planning to do.

Teaming up with the National Center for Transgender Equality, Oreo produced “special” rainbow Oreos to brainwash children about transgender pronouns.

The company posted about the one-of-a-kind Oreos on Facebook and Twitter.

But don’t expect to find these cookies on a shelf in your local grocery store.

Oreo knows what a mistake it would be to deliberately alienate half the country.

So aside from the social media posts, which the company hopes many conservative consumers will never see, the only way to find out about these “Share Your Pronoun” cookies is if you attended the Pride event they were giving them away at.

Unfortunately, reports show there are far too many children being exposed to all sorts of deviant behavior at these Pride Parades.

And that’s exactly who Oreo is really targeting with the “special” LGBT cookies – young, impressionable children.

This isn’t the first time the company has embraced the LGBT community.

In 2012, Oreo tweeted out a picture of a cookie with six layers of rainbow frosting.

The question is, will conservative consumers be turned off by their antics enough to quit buying the cookie?

Trump just did one thing the Left is going to absolutely hate

36

Abortion is responsible for the murder of millions of unborn baby boys and girls.

President Trump has declared he wants to put an end to that.

And he just did one thing that the Left is going to absolutely hate.

During the Faith & Freedom summit, President Donald Trump took to the stage to discuss a number of topics, including the right to life.

As President, he’s been unafraid of declaring his opposition to abortion, stating his belief that lifeis precious.

And to prove his commitment to his pro-life views, he called out to Katie Shaw from the stage.

Shaw was born with Down syndrome, and is a vocal pro-life advocate.

Trump met with her in the Oval Office this year, much to the ire of Planned Parenthood and the rest of the Abortion Lobby.

LifeSiteNews reports:

Calling on a pro-life advocate he hosted around the time of the March for Life, Trump thanked Katie Shaw of Indiana for her presence at the conference. “We had a great meeting — right? — in the Oval Office. Thank you, Katie. You look well, really well. Thank you very much. Thank you. So nice. She was in the Oval Office and really made a great impression on everybody.”

Trump said of Shaw, “She was born with Down syndrome and now works at a local store, does afantastic job; volunteers in her community; and has testified before lawmakers. As Katie said, ‘It’s a wonderful life. I’ve made the world a better place.’ And, Katie, yes, you have. You have.”

To the applause of the audience, Trump said, “Our nation is uplifted by incredible Americans like Katie who fight for the dignity of all humanity. My administration has also taken historic action to protect Americans’ rights enshrined in the Constitution.”

It’s significant that Trump praised somebody with Down syndrome.

Many abortion clinics, like Planned Parenthood, will encourage parents to abort children who are diagnosed with Down syndrome, instead of giving them a chance at life.

Miley Cyrus released a video wearing a disgusting costume that will make you sick

95

Miley Cyrus is desperate to save her failing career.

That’s why she engages in publicity stunts that are meant to generate headlines.

But many believe she went too far this time with this disgusting video.

Miley Cyrus now has a long history of supporting Planned Parenthood.

First, she posted a photo on Instagram of her licking a cake with the icing spelling, “Abortion is healthcare”.

Then, she partnered with Planned Parenthood to sell hoodies that read, “Don’t f*** with my freedom” on the front.

Now, she’s released a music video of her wearing a bright read vagina suit that will make you sick.

Breitbart reports:

Left-wing pop star Miley Cyrus donned a vagina catsuit in her “Mother’s Daughter” music video released Tuesday, in which she repeats the mantra “Don’t f*** with my freedom,” the same phrase seen on Planned Parenthood hoodies she’s recently promoted.

The “Mother’s Daughter” video features several celebrity cameos including Angelina Duplisea, Amazon Ashley, Aaron Philip, Lacey Baker, Melanie Sierra, Paige Fralix, Vendela, Casil McArthur, Trydryn Scott, Mari Copeny, and Cyrus’ mother Tish.

Cyrus dons a bright red vagina suit in the music video, which features a naked, obese woman and another woman breastfeeding.

A number of phrases pop up on the screen during the video, including “virginity is a social construct,” “sin is in your eyes,” “tough titties,” and “Feminist AF.”

This is a new low for Miley Cyrus.

It’s unclear if Planned Parenthood directly endorsed or partnered with Cyrus in this video or not.

Given the video’s controversy, Planned Parenthood may soon regret partnering with Miley Cyrus at all.

She’s completely embraced being as offensive as possible in order to create attention.

This strategy may work to get views on her music video, but it is turning off moderate voters from lending their support to pro-choice candidates.

If Planned Parenthood were wise, they would end their relationship with her.

But this is exactly the depravity that Planned Parenthood supports.

Their desire for taxpayer-funded and unrestricted abortion is even more disgusting than Miley Cyrus’s outlandish behavior.

This Left-wing City Council just declared war on American history with one disgusting vote

101

The radical Left is dead-set on destroying history that doesn’t fit with their agenda.

That’s why figures like Thomas Jefferson, who believed in freedom, are seen as their enemies.

And this Left-wing City Council just declared war on American history with one disgusting vote.

Thomas Jefferson is one of the greatest Americans in history.

What he was able to achieve in his life ensures that we have the freedoms we enjoy today.

But, despite his greatness, he has some flaws, including him owning slaves.

Because of this, Democrats want to discount all the good he’s done, and paint him as an evil racist.

And using that as an argument, the Charlottesville, VA City Council just voted to officially remove Thomas Jefferson’s birthday as a holiday.

CBS19 News reports:

The Charlottesville City Council voted to officially remove Thomas Jefferson’s birthday, April 13, as a holiday.

To replace it, Freedom and Liberation Day has been declared a holiday on March 3.

Removing celebrating Jefferson was voted on four to one with Galvin being the only “no” vote.

Adding Freedom and Liberation Day was a separate vote and was voted on unanimously.

Council also added a floating holiday to make a total of 12 holidays, meaning city employees gets about the same number of holidays as Albemarle County employees.

This is exactly what President Trump was warning would happen when the fight over Confederate.

He said that if the Left continues to remove Confederate monuments, they would eventually turn their focus on other historical figures.

Trump even directly mentioned Thomas Jefferson, and the Left laughed at him at the time.

But now their true intentions are clear.

Any historical figure they can find with any flaws is now on the chopping block.

The only question now is when they will begin trying to outright remove monuments to Jefferson.

Do you believe in preserving historical monuments?

Al Gore’s worst fears just came true with news about this All-American muscle car

37

First, Nanny State environmental socialists devised the “manmade global warming” con as an excuse to ram through every big government regulation they could dream up.

Then, every major Democrat running in 2020 endorsed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s so-called “Green New Deal.”

But now, Al Gore is realizing his worst nightmare is coming true with news of this all-American muscle car.

While General Motors recently announced plans to kill the Camaro to satisfy radical environmentalists, the upcoming 2020 Ford Mustang GT500 promises to be everything the “Green New Deal” environmental socialists despise.

Yes, the muscle car will have a big, powerful, supercharged V8 that is the bane of their existence.

But in addition to that, it’s also the new kid on the block that muscle car enthusiasts have been waiting for, amid the General Motors push for “greener” autos.

Granola-chomping environmentalists are seething mad because this muscle car is the middle finger to their regulations and socialist “utopia” of regulatory overreach.

At $70k, the car isn’t cheap, but compared to the European exotics that environmentalists like to drive, it’s a steal.

And nothing makes snobby environmental activists madder than somebody who’s not as rich as them leaving them in the dust.

Motor1 reports:

The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will start at $70,300, but a $1,095 destination fee and $2,600 gas guzzler tax will put the actual base price at $73,995. The Mustang6G forum first leaked this info from a Ford dealer pricing sheet, and spokesperson Jiyan Cadiz confirmed the figures to Motor1.com.
. . .
The GT500 packs a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 making 760 horsepower (567 kilowatts) and 625 pound-feet (847 Newton-meters) of torque. Power reaches the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The Blue Oval claims the muscle car can cover the quarter mile in a sub-11-second time, and the top speed is a factory-limited 180 miles per hour (289.6 kilometers per hour).

The GT500 goes on sale later this year.

Ford is making a statement that a muscle car shouldn’t be about making apologies to satisfy tree huggers in San Francisco.

And muscle car enthusiasts are cheering them on.

This has environmental Chicken Littles and big government socialists red in the face with anger.

In their fantasy land, muscle cars like the 2020 GT500 and Dodge’s 797 horsepower Hellcat Redeye would cease to exist.

Chevrolet was the first to bend the knee with their promise of “zero emission” cars.

But Ford and Mopar are standing strong, and Americans are taking notice.

Do you think a muscle car should be a “green” science experiment?

The Left just did something disgusting to try to shut down Chick-fil-A for good

172

The radical Left will stop at nothing to shut down Chick-fil-A.

Being a Christian-owned business that supports Christian beliefs is not acceptable to the Left.

And they just did something disgusting to try to shut down Chick-fil-A for good.

The tasty fried chicken food chain has been a target of the Left for years, ever since it came out that the Christian owners believe that marriage is between a man and woman.

Simply having those beliefs and being successful in America is too much for the Left.

So they’ve been staging boycotts, which have been completely unsuccessful so far.

That’s why radical Leftists physically attacked a Chick-fil-A during a Pride event on Sunday in New York City.

In big black lettering, they vandalized the restaurant with the words “F*** haters,” along with duct tape X’s, and other signs.

The Daily Caller reports:

A Manhattan Chick-fil-A was vandalized during Sunday’s Pride parade, according to photos provided to the Daily Caller.

The photos, taken of the Chick-fil-A location on 46th Street in Manhattan, show the words “F**k haters” scrawled across the windows and an “X” in red duct tape bearing the same words. There was also a small sign reading “LOVE is a terrible thing to waste” propped against the door.

Sunday, June 30, marked the end of Pride month, which culminated in the massive World Pride Parade through lower Manhattan.

Chick-fil-A has often been the target of LGBTQ activists who claim that the chain restaurant is “anti-gay” because the owners, who are Christians, support organizations that recognize marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

This is a clear escalation in their efforts to attack Chick-fil-A.
For the radical Left, vandalism is nothing new.

During many of their protests, they’ve destroyed local businesses, breaking their windows and even setting them on fire.

So while it’s simply starting with vandalism, there’s no telling where it will end.

Do you support Chick-fil-A?

Radical trans activists are freaking out over this one petition

87

The latest battleground between Christians and radical transgender activists is on sports teams.

Men who believe they are women believe they have the right to compete against biological women.

And now these transgender activists are freaking out over this one petition.

Transgenders have been working to get into our bathrooms, locker rooms, and sports teams for years.

Most people simply roll over and let them have their way to avoid being called “bigots.”

But a young girl in Connecticut is challenging that after she was denied access to a state track competition due to boys who think they are girls getting in ahead of her.

She is challenging it in court after filing a complaint with Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.

And she now has a lot of support, with LifeSiteNews launching a new petition.

LifeSiteNews reports:

A petition supporting a female athlete who now must compete against biological males because of Connecticut’s law requiring that boys who identify as “girls” be admitted into girls’ sports competitions has been launched by LifeSiteNews. The petition supports Selina Soule and her discrimination complaint lodged with the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.

Soule, a female high school athlete from Connecticut, has had her sporting career jeopardized by a state policy requiring that boys who call themselves “girls” be admitted to girls’ sports competitions.

Selina competes in track at Bloomfield High School in Bloomfield, Connecticut. She wasn’t able to qualify for the 55-meter event in the New England regionals because two spots were taken by boys, as The Daily Signal’s Kelsey Bolar documented in a recent video report on the 16-year-old’s situation.

Christiana Holcomb, legal counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal aid group, said the organization filed the complaint to bring justice to Selina’s situation.

The petition is a way for Christians to show they support her in her fight.

Going up against radical trans activists is not an easy thing to do.
So she needs all the help she can get.

Do you support this fight against radical transgender activists?
