Look Who Else Endorsed Kaepernick On The Same Day As Nike – What’s Really Going On?!

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Breitbart

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and famed anthem protester Colin Kaepernick is part of a new Nike campaign to mark the 30th anniversary of the sporting equipment giant’s iconic “Just Do It” slogan.

Kaepernick, who triggered a political firestorm after kneeling during the anthem in 2016 to protest racial injustice, has not played in the NFL since early 2017.

The 30-year-old is suing the NFL, claiming he has been frozen out of the league by team owners because of his activism. Kaepernick’s attorney, Mark Geragos, argues NFL owners were “clearly colluding” to keep the quarterback out of the leagues because they were “intimidated by President Donald Trump.

“They were clearly colluding because they were intimidated by the president. The only reason — and the owners will admit this — that they haven’t signed him is because of Trump, and they’ve colluded because of Trump,” Geragos told the Straight Aim with Amy Dash podcast in May.

The new Nike adverts, which were unveiled just days before the kick-off of the 2018 NFL season, show a portrait of Kaepernick with the slogan: “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

Kaepernick posted the advert on his Twitter account followed by #JustDoIt.

According to ESPN, Nike had kept Kaepernick, who signed a sponsorship deal with the company in 2011, on its payroll throughout the controversy of recent years. “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.

On the same day that Nike unveiled its new advertising campaign, Kaepernick received support from an unlikely figure.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the former president of Iran, took to Twitter Monday to decry Kaepernick’s exclusion from the NFL’s upcoming season. “The #NFL season will start this week, unfortunately once again @Kaepernick7 is not on a NFL roster. Even though he is one of the best Quarterbacks in the league,” Ahmadinejad tweeted.

Ahmadinejad served as Iran’s president from 2005 to 2013, overseeing the government crackdown on mass protests after his widely contested reelection in 2009. His administration killed dozens and arrested hundreds of political dissidents, then allegedly tortured and raped many of the imprisoned demonstrators.

The ad reveal comes just days after Kaepernick was cheered by spectators when he appeared alongside fellow player and activist Eric Reid at the U.S. Open tennis tournament to watch Serena Williams on Friday.

Kaepernick’s protests — accompanied by fashion statements like “pig cop” socks — have drawn the ire of President Trump, who has repeatedly criticized kneelers over the past year, labeling them “sons of bitches” who should be fired.

The president in June canceled the visit of the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after several players indicated they would not attend.

Colin Kaepernick Blindsided By Huge News 2 Weeks After His Nasty Nike Debut

Colin Kaepernick is best known for being the guy who started kneeling during the Nation Anthem. He has been a polarizing figure for both the people who support what he did and the people who hate him for disrespecting the flag.

Most recently Nike signed him for an ad that they have been running during NFL football games. At first, it seemed that Nike regretted their decision as their stock began to drop. But the people who support the kneeling movement showed up in mass to buy Nike products and profits went through the roof.

Now it seems that there could be some new opportunities coming Kaepernick’s way. We’ll wait and see what the truth is.

Colin Kaepernick hasn’t stepped foot on the gridiron since the 2016 season, a year after he rustled a fair amount of jimmies by sparking a movement when he decided to start kneeling during the national anthem in protest of police brutality.

This decision kicked off quite the saga, as Kaepernick was unable to find a new home after opting out of his contract with the 49ers, which was kind of suspicious when you consider Blaine Gabbert is still somehow signed to an NFL roster.

Rumors began to fly that the quarterback had been blackballed from the league in a vast conspiracy that some people theorized stretched all the way to the President of the United States.

It took a while, but Kaepernick recently burst back onto the scene in a big way after Nike revealed he’d be the face of their 30th-anniversary ad campaign.

People responded appropriately to the news and by that I mean they decided to burn Nike gear they’d already dropped money on in protest.

That’ll show ’em.

Shortly after the announcement, Nike dropped an ad that was seemingly designed to piss off his detractors even more.

Kaepernick has also been busy fighting a court battle concerning the alleged collusion that’s kept him out of the league for so long, but if his lawyer is to be believed, it could only be a matter of time before he returns to the football field.

TMZ Sports also wrote:

Colin Kaepernick and Tom Brady … on the same team???

That seems to be the suggestion coming from Colin’s attorney, Mark Geragos — who’s teasing to TMZ Sports that two NFL teams could be interested in signing the QB.

“I would just say, ‘Stay tuned’ … that next week there may be some news.”

Our guy pushed to get more information — and Geragos started dropping hints about the 2 teams.

The first clue obviously points to the Oakland Raiders.

“I’ll say this … if Al Davis was still alive.”

The interesting part of that comment — Al’s son, Mark Davis, took over the Raiders when his father passed away … and Mark recently told us he thought it was a good idea for Nike to sign Kaep.

The other clue was a little more abstruse, but he suggests Patriots owner Robert Kraft could be interested in Colin.

There’s more to the clip … Geragos also says Colin and his girlfriend, Nessa, are NOT boycotting the NFL. They’re watching games (they’re fans) and they’re supporting players like Kenny Stills.

Geragos also clears up some misinformation about Colin’s deal with Nike — confirming what TMZ Sports already told you … he is FOR SURE getting his own shoe as part of his deal with the Swoosh.

It remains to be seen if what Geragos is saying has any merit. It’s hard to believe that any team would sign a player who hasn’t set foot on a football field in 3 years.

It would make more sense to sign Tebow and get a real athlete who is ready to play right now.

550 State Troopers Have Officially Ended It For Nike And Send Unforgettable Message

Published

Mississippi state police have just done what every single police department in the country should be doing.

Chicks On The Right reported that in a statement, Marshall Fisher, who is a commissioner of the Department of Public Safety, and a spokesperson has said the department will no longer be supporting vendors who do not support law enforcement and our military.

Because of this, they will immediately stop the purchase of all Nike products following their offensive ad campaign which features former Forty Niner Quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s mug with the words “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

The Governor of Mississippi Phil Bryant has also come out in full support of the commissioner’s decision. In a statement, he made clear that Fisher has the right to deny business “with a company that pays an individual who has slandered our fine men and women in law enforcement.”

Here is what one Mississippi Sheriff had to say about this matter via AOL:

“A Marshall County, Mississippi sheriff is under fire after he shared a photo that compared former NFL player Colin Kaepernick to Osama Bin Laden, the co-founder of the Islamic militant group al-Qaeda.

“Marshall County Constable Don Cothern re-posted a photo on his own Facebook account that shows an image of the terrorist next to an image of the former 49ers quarterback and includes the text, “If Bin Laden had a son.”

“Kaepernick made headlines during his time as a professional football player for kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality, a move which some have called unpatriotic.

“But despite the controversy that has surrounded Kaepernick’s career, Marshall County resident Albert Griffin told WREG that he believes Cothern’s comparison “doesn’t fit at all, as far as I’m concerned.”

“[Kaepernick] is trying to do something to keep people from treating people wrong,” Griffin told the station. “[Bin Laden] is a terrorist.”

“WREG reached out to multiple Marshall County officials who told the station they are unable to comment on the matter since the post was shared on Cothern’s personal account.

“Cothern responded to the controversy on Wednesday with a lengthy post on his Facebook page, calling the public outcry over the photo a “political move.”

“Well, as I’m sitting in the ER, I see that I made the Chanel 3 news, for a Facebook post that I re-shared, well over a week ago, last time I checked, we in America had freedom of speech,” he wrote. “I am a TRUE American and I firmly believe that you should stand for our National Anthem, not kneel, so if I offended anyone, I’m sorry. But I also know this is a Political move since our county election is right around the corner. Yes, I am still the Constable and I am very thankful that the Lord has blessed me to continue to serve, while also doing dialysis for the last 5 years. People that know me, know that there is not a racist bone in my body.'”

Department spokesman Warren Strain also added that the department has bought shoes, shirts and tactical training uniforms from Nike in the past. And the Mississippi’s Department of Public Safety includes the state Highway Patrol, Bureau of Narcotics, Bureau of Investigation, Office of Homeland Security, Crime Lab and the Medical Examiner. So this is no laughing matter for Nike, especially if the sentiment catches on with other law enforcement departments in the nation.

The truth of the matter is that this whole campaign by Nike can be called “false advertising.” Kaepernick didn’t sacrifice one damn thing. All he did is find a way to call attention to himself after the Forty-Niners organization putting him on the bench because he just wasn’t a good quarterback. Which happened long before his girlfriend ever came up with this asinine kneeling scheme.

Here is more on Kaepernick’s performance via ESPN:

“Kaepernick’s greatest NFL successes came as part of the San Francisco 49ers’ read-option scheme from 2012-14. In those three years, he rushed for 1,578 yards — more than any quarterback other than Russell Wilson and Cam Newton. His success — he threw more than twice as many touchdown passes (50) as interceptions (21) — helped him compile the eighth-best Total Quarterback Rating in the NFL (70.2) over that period.

“Even then, Kaepernick was one of the league’s least-accurate quarterbacks. His 60.1 completion percentage ranked No. 23 in the NFL, and his percentage of off-target throws — judged on video by ESPN Stats & Information — ranked No. 18 (17.6 percent).

“Those issues intensified in 2015 and 2016 amid the 49ers’ coaching turmoil and talent drain. Since the start of the 2015 season, Kaepernick ranks last in the NFL among 35 qualified passers in off-target percentage (22.6). His completion percentage ranks No. 32 at 59.1. He still was one of the NFL’s most productive rushing quarterbacks, ranking No. 4 in total yardage over those years, but it didn’t mitigate his passing deterioration.'”
