Arizona Governor Tells Off Nike After They Once Again Choose Kaepernick Over Patriotism
Nike tried to capitalize on the controversial Colin Kaepernick. They signed him on after he was no longer wanted at the NFL, but was still complaining about his right to kneel to the flag. So Nike was trying to be creative and patriotic for this Fourth of July. They thought to do a Betsy Ross inspired 13-star flag design to celebrate the occasion. But their anti-patriotic kneeler protested calling it racist…Arizona Governor Doug Ducey saw this and decided to act on it.
“Words cannot express my disappointment at this terrible decision,” Ducey tweeted. ”I am embarrassed for Nike.
“Nike is an iconic American brand and American company. This country, our system of government and free enterprise have allowed them to prosper and flourish.”
“Instead of celebrating American history the week of our nation’s independence, Nike has apparently decided that Betsy Ross is unworthy, and has bowed to the current onslaught of political correctness and historical revisionism.”
“It is a shameful retreat for the company. American businesses should be proud of our country’s history, not abandoning it.”
“Nike has made its decision, and now we’re making ours. I’ve ordered the Arizona Commerce Authority to withdraw all financial incentive dollars under their discretion that the State was providing for the company to locate here.”
“Arizona’s economy is doing just fine without Nike. We don’t need to suck up to companies that consciously denigrate our nation’s history…” “And finally, it shouldn’t take a controversy over a shoe for our kids to know who Betsy Ross is. A founding mother. Her story should be taught in all American schools. In the meantime, it’s worth googling her.”
This is great. More people need to make Nike realize what a mistake they made by having any association with the unpatriotic Kaepernick. His disrespect knows no bounds.
