IT BEGINS!! Sporting Goods Store Boycotts Nike Products over Kaepernick Ad Campaign

Published

on

Dwight D. Eisenhower once said  “A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.” and a man willing to live by principles above privilege or even convenience these days is a hard man to find these days.

Store owner Stephen Martin is such a man. Martin is the owner of Prime Time Sports and he has vowed to stop selling Nike products after the sportswear giant chose Colin Kaepernick as the face of its “Just Do It” ad campaign.

The store is located in the Chapel Hills Mall in Colorado Springs, Colorado and Martin vowed he is going to “just do it” even if it hurts his business.

Martin’s strong feelings regarding Nike and their business decisions regarding Kaepernick mean he is not only choosing to take every Nike item out of his store, he is also choosing to dump every Nike product he personally owns out of his home as well.

Prime Time Sports has been owned by Martin for 21 years, and he realizes he could go out of business because a large part of his inventory is the collection of NFL jerseys he offers — those official jerseys will be exclusive to Nike.

Once considered a promising professional athlete with an NFL career ahead of him, Kaepernick chose to throw all of that away. Claiming that he was standing up for racial injustice and inequality, Kaepernick chose to sit and then later stand during the National Anthem. Many Americans viewed Kaepernick’s actions as a sign of complete and utter disrespect to the military, first responders, and the police.

Kaepernick has been out of the NFL for a few years and is currently pursuing a collusion case against the league for allegedly conspiring to keep him from the sport after his on-field protest spread to other players and teams, despite his choice to turn down a contract because he felt he was worth more money.

Kaepernick will allegedly make significantly MORE money as a Nike spokesman than he ever would have made as a backup quarterback for a midmarket NFL team. The idea that Kaepernick “sacrificed everything” or anything at all is simply laughable. The man is no martyr.

Martin sent a strongly worded letter to Nike in response to the company’s decision to use Kaepernick in the ad. Martin calls the company “the mother of all harlots” for their ad campaign, calling into question their use of the phrase “sacrificed everything.”

“According to me, he has sacrificed a salary,” Martin posted in a note on the window of Prime Time Sports. The note is surrounded by pictures of fallen service members. “Nothing compared to what every soul on our ‘Honor the Flag’ memorial wall that was built a few years ago has suffered and died for.”

Why does he feel so strongly about this? Well, his father in law was a POW and the stories he has heard from his father in law inspired his decision to cancel all his merchandise contracts with Nike.

Martin states after he spoke to his father in law he concluded -“He said the hardest part for me was watching his fellow soldiers get beat up and killed in front of him and he couldn’t defend them because it would have cost him his life. So Colin, you don’t know what sacrifice is, you just don’t know what it is, in my opinion.”

Martin chose to deeply discount his current Nike items to simply get rid of the stock he currently has on hand. He will not replace that stock with any new Nike products.

The Denver Post reports

A large sign in the window reads: “Still choosing to stand. All Nike 1/2 price. Just doing it.” Below it is a banner of historic military photos and a letter to Kaepernick from store owner Stephen Martin.

“Mr. Kaepernick, Have your eyes seen or yours (sic) ears heard what these photos are saying that have given you the freedom to express yourself in our United States of America … ?” Martin’s letter says.

Nike plans to broadcast a commercial during Thursday’s NFL season opener between the Falcons and Eagles with the tagline, “Believe in something, even it means sacrificing everything.” The ad is narrated by Kaepernick and has appearances by LeBron James, Serena Williams and other well-known athletes.

Kaepernick, who famously took a knee during the national anthem before a 2016 preseason game in protest of racial injustices around the United States, became a free agent after the season and no team has since signed him, prompting a collusion case against the league. His protest caught on and led to more players around the country to take a knee during The Star-Spangled Banner over the past two seasons.

Broncos GM John Elway recently said he offered the quarterback a contract, but Kaepernick declined. According to KRDO, Martin said the sale began Tuesday in an effort to permanently clear out all Nike inventory. Sam Kraemer of KOAA reported Martin says the 50-percent price cut covers the costs for which the store owner purchased the merchandise for.

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.
