Mayor Just Royally Stuck It To Nike By Issuing Massive Ban Effective Immediately

Published

on

The blowback against Nike continues over their new “Just Do It” ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick. At least one store is selling off its Nike apparel at half price, a school is removing Nike from teams’ uniforms and fans are burning their shoes in protest. It’s not exactly what I would call good PR.

In Louisiana last week, a mayor sent out a memo banning his city’s recreation department from purchasing any Nike products. Kenner City Mayor Ben Zahn took a principled stand and seems to have declared that on Sept. 5, that “under no circumstances” should Nike products or any product with the Nike logo be purchased, WBRZ 2 reported Saturday.

The memorandum was circulated on social media, bearing the City of Kenner letterhead and Zahn’s signature. Works for me. The mayor just royally stuck it to Nike and the ban is effective immediately.

Sounds like a great place to live if you ask me. That’s one mayor that should be reelected stat. This mayor joins business owners, police officers and military veterans who are definitively telling Nike where they can stuff their brand over supporting a cop-hating Black Lives Matter social justice warrior like Colin Kaepernick.

Zahn had his office send the memo to Parks and Recreation Department Director Chad Pitfield on Sept. 5, according to what appears to be a copy of the letter posted to WBRZ. I love it. Nice to see a mayor with some stones out there.

The local media got a hold of the memo which allegedly states that “effective immediately,” any booster club operating at city recreation facilities must have their purchases approved by Pitfield — including apparel, shoes, athletic equipment “and/or any athletic product.” Sounds by the book to me. If you are using city recreation facilities, you are in effect, bound by their rules.

Below is Kenner Mayor Ben Zahn, left, laughing with City Councilman-elect George Branigan who is wearing a “Make Kenner Great” hat.

In a post on the City of Kenner, District 1 Facebook page, Councilman Gregory Carroll went the other direction. He responded to the memo in a public Facebook post on Sunday, “I was not made aware of this decision beforehand and it is in direct contradiction of what I stand for and what the City of Kenner should stand for. I am 100% AGAINST this decision. I will meet with the Mayor and other Council members in an effort to rescind this directive.” And just like that… Carroll should be voted out of office over this.

This comes just days after Nike made their fateful announcement that former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick would be the face of its 30th-anniversary “Just Do It” campaign. Behold yet another consequence of Nike’s tone-deafness when it comes to a huge segment of their clientele.

Zahn did not mention Kaepernick by name in his memo. He’s no dummy and that was almost certainly by design. He’s protecting himself and the city legally here from leftist activists and lawfare.

And if you had any doubt that Zahn truly feels that way, it definitely appears so:

“Although Zahn did not respond Sunday to requests for comment, he did speak on the issue a week earlier at Kenner’s Freedom Fest at the Lake.

“She’s going to come out and do our National Anthem because this is not the NFL football players, right? This is the city of Kenner. In the city of Kenner we all stand,” he told the crowd prior to a performance of the anthem.”

President Trump and many, many Americans are ticked over Nike’s move here. Some of them are posting videos on social media showing the destruction of Nike products. Who can blame them at this point?

Although Nike’s stock price plummeted immediately after their ad campaign announcement, according to various media and financial outlets, their stock soared 31 percent over the last week. I do not think that will hold, but who knows? It doesn’t change how I view their deplorable actions here.

Kaepernick is now a former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. He’s also now the face of Nike and will make millions selling their product lines. All by his lonesome, Kaepernick has made hating America, police officers, military veterans and first responders profitable after he started his kneeling craze during the National Anthem.

This is one of the most shameful things to ever happen in this nation and I stand with Mayor Zahn in his apparent disgust over the whole situation. One wonders if the NFL will survive all this. Frankly, I don’t care anymore.

Mayor Zahn is not commenting right now and I don’t blame him. Democrats are circling to attack him. I hope he stands his ground on this and shows how Nike just blew it.

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.'”
