BOOM! ‘I’m Done’: Sporting Goods Store Puts Money Where Its Mouth Is, Liquidates ALL Nike Products

Published

on

Nike is getting all kinds of blowback over the Colin Kaepernick “Just Do It” ad campaign. Their stock is plummeting and Americans are burning their Nikes in protest over the social justice movement. Suddenly, it’s not cool to wear Nike anymore.

The College of the Ozarks is a private Christian school in Point Lookout, Missouri. They compete in sports at the NAIA level. In a development that is nothing short of hilarious, the school is now saying they will remove all uniforms purchased from Nike that contain the brand’s logo. The team is embarrassed to wear the brand’s logo.

This bold move is happening right after Nike launched their highly controversial “Just Do It” ad campaign featuring former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. They’ve put up billboards with his radical face on them and have YouTube ads hitting the markets, but sports fans are not impressed.

“In their new ad campaign, we believe Nike executives are promoting an attitude of division and disrespect toward America,” College of the Ozarks President Jerry C. Davis said in a statement on Wednesday, according to KMBC. Yes, they are. They are also pushing hatred and disrespect of police officers, the military, first responders and America in general.

The college was blunt. They said they will ‘choose their country over the company’ and remove all athletic uniforms that were bought from Nike as well as any clothing containing its emblems. Good for them… I respect that stance.

“If Nike is ashamed of America, we are ashamed of them,” College of the Ozarks President Jerry C. Davis said in his statement. “We also believe that those who know what sacrifice is all about are more likely to be wearing a military uniform than an athletic uniform.” That was an astute and informed observation.

This isn’t the first contract that Nike has had with Kaepernick. They have kept him on their endorsement roster over the years after signing him in 2011. It’s just that now he will make millions more in the deal as they launch a clothing and equipment line in honor of the Black Lives Matter supporter.

Kaepernick has not appeared in any Nike ads for two years. Now, all of a sudden… he’s the face of Nike. They chose very, very poorly.

“We believe Colin is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward,” Gino Fisanotti, Nike’s vice president of brand for North America, told ESPN. Talk about monumental tone deafness… there ya go.

From ABC7:

“A source with knowledge of Nike’s contract with Kaepernick told the Associated Press that the company will feature Kaepernick on several platforms, including billboards, television commercials and online ads. Nike also will create an apparel line for Kaepernick and contribute to his Know Your Rights charity.

“Kaepernick is suing the NFL for allegedly colluding to keep him out of the league. An arbitrator sent Kaepernick’s grievance with the NFL to trial, denying the league’s request to throw out his claims that owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his protests of social injustice.

“Kaepernick began a wave of protests by NFL players two seasons ago, kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality. The protests have grown into one of the most polarizing issues in sports, with President Donald Trump loudly urging the league to suspend or fire players who demonstrate during the anthem.”

I don’t see how you can blame the College of the Ozarks for dropping Nike. They see it for what it is and no brand is more important than the love of country or the respect for those who serve this nation selflessly every day. They sacrifice everything… Kaepernick sacrifices nothing. The campaign is incredibly hypocritical.

This isn’t the first time the College of the Ozarks has taken a stand for its views on patriotism, the American flag, and the National Anthem. In October of 2017, the college revised its contracts for competition in all sports, adding a stipulation that all participating players and coaches show respect for the American flag and the National Anthem. This college gets it.

Dr. Marci Linson, vice president of patriotic activities and dean of admissions at the college, oversees patriotic activities and safeguards the college’s patriotic goal: to encourage an understanding of American heritage, civic responsibilities, love of country and willingness to defend it.

“Nike is free to campaign as it sees fit, as the college is free, and honor-bound by its mission and goals, to ensure that it respects our country and those who truly served and sacrificed,” Linson said. Major respect… there’s at least one college out there that is worth a damn.

LeBron Confesses To Being Racist And Proud In Nasty Warning To ‘White People’ In America

Published

on

...

* By

Lebron James is the poster boy NBA player famously known for having a freakish talent on the court, but also by being the guy who constantly switches teams, flops on the court like a soft loaf of bread, complains about air conditioning, does not have as many championship rings as Michael Jordan, isn’t clutch in the playoffs, not fully funding the “Promise” school that uses him as their advertisement, and now he has a bizarre message about white people that might have some fans and haters wondering what’s going on with the mega-rich athlete.

James is making moves in the off-season with his mostly taxpayer-funded public school, which seems to be a public school giving away bikes as a gimmick and maybe some tuition money, but how sustainable is that over the long-run? He’s also making headlines another way by admitting that he didn’t really seem to like white people and viewed them “suspiciously” as well as not wanting to be around them.

Sounds a little bit racist, right? Part of why he says this is because he was raised by a family who might now be considered racist as the upbringing he had seemed centered on thinking that white people were no good. I’m pretty sure Lebron James isn’t 80-years-old and a victim of the era where black and white people used different water fountains, but maybe his parents were still mentally stuck in that racist era that people are ashamed of, but are now happy to be beyond that nonsense.

Breitbart stated:

“NBA star LeBron James recently admitted that, due to his upbringing, he initially viewed whites suspiciously, and did not want to be around white people until he learned to give them a chance.

“James made his admission on HBO’s The Shop talk show saying that when he first began attending an exclusive, mostly white, private high school in Akron, Ohio, he was not very keen on having to talk to white people, according to TMZ.

“In fact, James says that when he first started attending the school, he did not want to make any white friends among his classmates.

“Took me a while to adjust to it … I was like, I’m not f*cking with white people, that was my initial thought to white America,” James admitted.

“The newly minted Los Angeles Laker admitted that his “institutionalized” upbringing in the black community taught him that whites did not want what was best for him.

“I’m going to this school to play ball, and that’s it,” James said of his introduction at 14 years of age to white people. “I don’t want nothing to do with white people, I don’t believe that they want anything to do with (me),” he said. “Me and my boys we going to high school together and we here to hoop.”

“It took me a little while to kind of adjust to it,” James added.

“But, Maverick Carter, James’ business partner and friend, added that by the end of that first year, James’ friends from the hood and his new white friends from school were all enjoying each other’s company on a regular basis.”

Are people still raising their kids in an institutionalized way? Perhaps. Are people in urban areas less focused on education and more focused on looking cool and being popular? Absolutely. When there are households with eight children by multiple men and the woman refuses to work, and the men have taken off, and no one is there to raise the children properly or instill any concept of “education is important,” then what chance do those kids have? If they’re not talented like Lebron James, then they have no chance at life and end up living a lifestyle riddled with crime and low grades and thinking cops are out to get them. That’s how a lot of children in urban environments are raised and it’s sad.

Not every kid will be a freakish athlete like Lebron. Maybe one in every million becomes a pro athlete, so there’s basically no chance and anyone dreaming about it is wasting their time.

Is Lebron James racist now? Doubtful. He probably grew out of that once he realized that we are no different. Our talents might vary, but we are all humans. Maybe Lebron finally realized that, but maybe not.

Out of all the gimmicky things he has done and all the whining, this is the first time that I’ve actually had any respect for him. For him to admit this was a pretty big thing to own up to. For once Lebron James was likable because he was extremely honest about his upbringing, even if it was embarrassing and controversial.

However, as soon as I’m done writing this, then I’ll go back to being a hater again.

I can see through his gimmicks and inability to be loyal to a city with his talent. That’s something we didn’t have to worry about with Michael Jordan, which is why Lebron won’t ever be the greatest.

NFL Team Replaces American Flag With Enraging New Version – Grossly Unacceptable

Published

* By

As TV ratings dwindle, stadiums suffered from low attendance this weekend – as photos of thousands of empty seats make their way around social media, and football season gears up, players choosing to take a knee in protest during the National Anthem shows no sign of abating. Meanwhile, the NFL itself continues to be utterly tone-deaf to the majority of America.

A recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that 54% of Americans polled believe kneeling during the National Anthem is inappropriate. Only 44% state they do not mind the kneeling players, according to the Washington Times. The poll revealed that those that no longer choose to follow the NFL as a result of the protest had grown by 10% since the last time the poll was taken in 2014.

<h4 style=”text-align: center;”><span style=”color: #ff0000;”><strong>Do YOU think we have the best President and First Lady ever? Follow <span style=”color: #0000ff;”><a style=”color: #0000ff;” href=”https://twitter.com/TheAmandaShea” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Amanda Shea on Twitter</a></span> to get RIGHT daily insight!</strong></span></h4>

Even as much of the mainstream media and sports media alike continue to loudly support protests and players insist that it is their First Amendment right to conduct them, it appears that for all intents and purposes they have failed to convince the rest of America of their message. Many have chosen to simply tune out rather than continue to support what they view as complete disrespect for combat veterans, the fallen and their families.

Those choosing to protest and their supporters insist that the protests are not about any offense to the military but while perhaps they do not intend to do so, that is exactly what they are doing. And, since the NFL’s future depends on selling overpriced ad spots to massive corporations looking for a consistent number of eyeballs, alienating any group of viewers, for whatever reason, is just bad for business.

Consistent with the tone-deaf message of the NFL, the Green Bay Packers management made an epic blunder in their recent choice to display a rather odd looking variation on the American flag. During the pre-game ceremony, Green Bay Packers displayed a made-up version of the American flag during the National Anthem, which was three solid color stripes with the blue stripe containing the stars.

 

Social media exploded with those fans that still choose to follow the NFL and the Packers with commentary ranging from that “what in the world is that?” to “that’s not my flag!”

The message was loud and clear. That is not the American flag and the Green Bay Packers should get rid of this banner immediately. Perhaps this might be the one occasion where taking a knee during the National Anthem might be acceptable and appropriate?

Pictures of the pregame ritual before the Green Bay Packers-Buffalo Bills matchup on Sunday went viral after several fans at Lambeau Field snapped photos of a red, white and blue flag with modified stars and stripes.

Either way, it seems Green Bay got the message as the team announced directly after the game that it will no longer use the “banner,” according to Fox 11.

As the local news affiliate reports:

“During the National Anthem, the team used a red, white and blue banner. The banner had stars on the blue stripe.

“It’s not American, not American at all,” said Sandy Austin. “There are a lot of people who have quit the NFL because of the pre-game stuff and all that’s going on.”

“In a statement, Packers spokesman Aaron Popkey said the banner was not meant to represent the American flag.

“‘The banner used during Sunday’s pregame ceremony supplemented the three U.S. flags on the roof of the stadium and the flag carried by the color guard on the field. We’ve used such displays from time to time in the past when other pregame elements take up a significant portion of the field. To avoid causing confusion, we will not be using such displays in the future.'”

According to Packers management, the University Of Wisconsin marching band featured approximately 200 members and they claim the marching band took up too much of the field to unveil the entire full American flag.

But that explanation was not flying for many Americans and the Green Bay Packers will no longer use the fictional flag banner. For the most part, the Packers have not chosen to actively participate in the “take the knee” protests during the National Anthem though they did choose to lock arms during one Thursday night game last season.

NFL franchise owners’ support for the “take the knee” protests appear to be very much contingent on ratings and revenues, and many believe they will only continue to tolerate the protests as long as they do not negatively impact the bottom line. Case in point, the almost immediate decision to cease using the pseudo-flag in the representation of America.

NFL owners are nothing if not businessmen, so as Americans continue to hit them in their wallets by voting with their dollars, choosing to tune out or simply not attend the games, nothing is likely to change. Until attendance declines precipitously or it can be determined that the protests have directly impacted the bottom line and/or a corresponding decline in television ratings, they are unlikely to put their foot down.
