BUSTED! Reebok Throwing Tons Of Money To Back Dr. Ford As Kavanaugh Undergoes FBI Investigation

Published

on

What the hell is going on here? First Nike decides to make that anti-American multi-millionaire the face of their company and now Reebok has decided to do something stupid too and throw in with an organization which has referred to Judge Kavanaugh as a rapist.

Today once again a celebrity who I have never personally heard of has come out with a statement on Instagram about what the company Reebok will be doing with their profits. “I worked with Reebok to design my own T-shirt and with every purchase, @REEBOK WILL DONATE 100% of the proceeds to two awesome foundations: @movemeant & @womensstrengthcoalition!”

Now celebrities being political these days I can understand since most seem to be suffering from Trump Derangement syndrome after suffering from years of sexual abuse under their liberal bosses, but why all of a sudden are sneaker companies who have been known for utilizing slave labor and have done so for decades feel the need to alienate more than half of their paying public by taking sides? No one with business experience can say getting political as you try to sell overpriced sports garments is a good idea.

Many people who have bought Nike shoes for most of their lives have now vowed to stop. And the best part is when both Nike announced, on the following weekend, sales skyrocketed as liberals were proud of them for so-called “Taking a stand for social justice.” But two weeks later Nike was singing a different tune when the numbers for the quarter were released. Sales are in the toilet, and they will remain there since it’s doubtful they can do anything to make it right with Patriotic Americans who used to buy their products. Reebok will suffer the same fate, just watch.

But as WWeek reports it seems Nike is all talk but no action:

“Few American companies have touted their commitment to civil rights and inclusion more proudly than Nike.

Its current ad campaign featuring quarterback Colin Kaepernick, ostracized from the NFL for kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality, is merely the latest example.

But to Jazz Lyles, a transgender software engineer who worked at the company’s Beaverton headquarters until earlier this month, Nike’s reputation is a cruel joke.

Over the past six months, Nike has been rocked by complaints and lawsuits from female employees who say a white male-dominated culture created a hostile workplace and widespread inequity.

CEO Mark Parker responded by firing a half-dozen senior executives and pledging in a May email to all employees that he was “personally committed to making Nike a place where everyone can thrive in an environment of respect, empathy and equal opportunity.”

But this week, Lyles filed a workplace discrimination complaint with the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries against Nike and its IT contractor, Mainz Brady Group. The complaint, if true, paints a damning picture of a toxic workplace—and of discriminatory behavior toward a transgender person that continued even as Parker pledged reforms.

In early 2017, Mainz Brady recruited Lyles to work at Nike Digital’s engineering group. Lyles is black and transmasculine/nonbinary (meaning Lyles was assigned the female gender at birth but identifies with masculinity and as a nonbinary person.) Lyles lived in the San Francisco Bay Area but was familiar with the culture Nike claimed to promote.

But the culture Lyles actually experienced left Lyles humiliated, depressed—and unemployed.

“They talked a great game on LGBTQ issues,” Lyles says, “but when you ask them to actually stand up for these issues, it gets communicated to you that you are the problem.”

Nike declined to comment.

Lyles, 36, grew up in Houston and studied art and art history at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. A photographer and tinkerer, they worked in database management for a while and then learned software skills. A stint in the video game industry led to a 2017 offer to come to Beaverton.

Before accepting the offer to work at Nike, Lyles told the recruiter from Mainz Brady that they were transgender and stressed the importance of being identified by the pronouns “they,” “them” and “their.”

Mikki Gillette, who conducts workplace training for Basic Rights Oregon and identifies as transgender, says some people may find such a request puzzling, but the correct pronouns are far more than just words.

“It reinforces a stigma and an injustice for people to look at someone and say, ‘I know who you are and I’m going to refer to you that way,'” Gillette says.

Gillette adds it’s understandable that people might get confused about pronouns when they first come into contact with people who identify as transgender.

“Everybody makes mistakes,” Gillette says. “Transgender people know that. But if somebody is willfully using the wrong pronoun or the wrong name, it’s reinforcing this idea that transgender people aren’t who they say they are.”

Erin Kirkwood, a Portland lawyer who trains other lawyers on transgender issues, says language around identity changes regularly. “In the ’70s, when people started using the term ‘Ms.,’ a lot of people struggled with it,” Kirkwood says. “Today, it’s completely normal and ‘Mrs.’ is more unusual.”

When Kirkwood represents trans clients, she lets the judge’s clerk and opposing counsel know the pronouns the client wants to be called. “If a white male were in court and a judge referred to them as ‘she,’ at a minimum the man would feel uncomfortable,” Kirkwood says.

Lyles started at Nike’s campus on May 1, 2017, working on IT teams that combined independent contractors with Nike employees and supervisors. Lyles was paid $62.50 an hour.

Lyles says from the beginning, colleagues insisted on referring to them as “she” and “her” and greeting them by saying such things as “Hey, girl, what’s up?”

Lyles’ colleagues and Nike supervisors ignored their requests to be referred to with correct pronouns. Lyles sent one colleague an article titled “What You’re Actually Saying When You Ignore Someone’s Gender Pronouns.” The colleague’s response: He stopped talking to Lyles.

A female colleague, according to Lyles’ complaint, refused to use the correct pronouns “because it would compromise [the co-worker’s] religious beliefs.”

Lyles enjoyed the technical challenges of working at Nike but increasingly came to dread interactions with colleagues. Every day brought a new slight.

“Nike’s response and solution was not to take corrective action,” Lyles writes in the BOLI complaint. “But instead [the response] was to treat me like I was the problem.”

Near the end of last year, Nike transferred Lyles to a different team. Nothing changed.

“From the moment I introduced myself to the new team on Dec. 13, 2017, I received pushback regarding the use of my proper gender pronouns,” Lyles’ complaint says.

Instead, the situation got worse. In January 2018, the BOLI complaint says, one female colleague said, “I’m really not sure what to call you. I know I’m not supposed to call you ‘shemale.'”

Nike provided employee training on gender issues Jan. 25, 2018, but only for a few people who worked directly with Lyles, not the entire department.

“It again singled me out, made me a problem, and exacerbated the issues with my team,” Lyles writes in the BOLI complaint. “It would be like holding a training on racial sensitivity with the only team with a black person on it.”

Lyles’ contract was extended twice, but the stress of continually being misgendered affected Lyles’ health, they claim.

“I felt invisible and unheard and silenced,” Lyles says. “Language has the ability to erase a person completely.”

In early August, Lyles filed formal HR complaints with Mainz Brady and Nike and began working from home. Nonetheless, Lyles says their Nike boss moved to hire Lyles as a full-time employee.

Lyles’ boss was overruled. Nike said it was entering a “hiring freeze.” Lyles did not believe that, because other contractors were shifting over to full-time Nike employment.

Lyles’ attorney, Shenoa Payne, filed their BOLI complaint Sept. 25, alleging discrimination and retaliation.Business should never”

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
