Nike executives are transforming the company into a “woke” corporation.
First, Nike hitched its wagon to anti-American anthem protester Colin Kaepernick.
But now Nike made another shocking move to appease Left-wing activists.
Nike won an Emmy for its ad “Dream Crazy,” which featured Colin Kaepernick.
After releasing the ad, Nike positioned itself as the “woke” athletic apparel company.
And their latest move just solidified that.
Nike will include a full coverage swimsuit complete with hijab, as part of their new Victory Swim Collection.
The collection, announced on Tuesday, will be available online and at select retailers February 1st.
“The design of the Nike Victory Swim Collection serves a variety of needs from modesty preferences to sun protection and represents Nike’s commitment to inclusive design, providing more women with game-changing innovation to enjoy sport,” Nike said in a statement.
This isn’t Nike’s first foray into workout clothing designed specifically for Muslim women. In 2017, the athletic apparel company unveiled a pull-on hijab designed to be worn while exercising.
People expect these types of sharp Left turns for companies from time to time.
Mattel released a Barbie doll with a hijab, fashioned after Muslim Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad.
But what’s more puzzling is the Left’s full embrace of the fundamentalist aspects of Islam.
The same Leftists who detest Christianity are quick to celebrate women like Muhammad wearing a hijab.
But the hijab is in stark contrast to the Left’s feminist ideals.
Muhammad grew up in a fundamentalist household in New Jersey where she was covered at all times publicly, even while competing in volleyball and softball.
By any other measure, the hijab would not be a symbol of female empowerment, but the Left is trying to convince everyone it is.
While feminists in the west are putting women in hijabs, Muslim women in the Middle East are protesting by taking off their hijabs, and paying a steep price for it.
But crazy American Leftists have turned society topsy-turvy.
Do you think it’s nonsensical to promote the hijab as a symbol of empowerment?
