Trump Weighs in on Nike-Kaepernick Controversy

President Trump has weighed in on Nike’s controversial move to have Colin Kaepernick as their new poster boy. The Daily Caller reports:

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that Nike sent a “terrible message” this week by making former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick one of the faces representing the 30th anniversary of the company’s “Just Do It” campaign. But he also said the company’s ability to make its own business decisions “is what this country is all about.”

“I think it’s a terrible message. Nike is a tenant of mine. They pay a lot of rent,” Trump said, referring to Niketown New York, which is — for now —  located at 6 East 57th Street in New York City.

The president made the remarks during an exclusive Oval Office interview with The Daily Caller Tuesday afternoon.

Kaepernick kicked off a protest movement among some NFL players during the 2016 pre-season when he began kneeling at games during the national anthem, rather than standing.

While Trump has voiced his displeasure with the move, he also respects what companies choose to do to increase sales – though it remains to be seen if this will pay off for Nike.

And it should drop further down after that commercial. Shows what Nike thinks of America. They have fleeced buyers over the years , while paying pennies to poor workers in china.
They have stepped to the front in showing the class they truly are.

Colin Kaepernick is last weeks news! Very few folks around the World have ever heard of him and likely they never will. Let this clown crawl back to his life. Nobody I know anywhere cares about who he is or what he does!

We now find ourselves in a defacto Civil War. On one side we have those ungrateful people who hate their own Country despite the fact that many of the most vocal have achieved success. On the other side we have those folks who understand that our Country is not perfect but we can work in a positve way to fix those imperfections without disrespecting our Flag and Veterans who fought for all the freedoms we enjoy. We don’t need to resort to violence and infringing on the Constitutional Rights of others to make our Country better. We have a Democratic process with which to do those things. What will ultimately happen however is that those folks who believe in the Constitution will only take so much of the other nonsense before they start giving back in kind the infringements on their rights and liberties. Then its going to get real nasty.

“stupid feral apes”? That sounds like a racist expression. It’s racism like that which is the point of the athletes, as they respectfully exercise their rights as Americans, the rights to free speech and peaceful protest. Yes, I say respectfully – facing the flag, silent, and kneeling – which has been a sign of respect across the globe for centuries. They are exercising the rights for which veterans fought and died; were those sacrifices for nought if those rights are not allowed or are criticized?

Think about it – ours is not a country where everyone must be the same, where everyone must march in lockstep to their “dear leader”, must follow and never question the government’s edicts, where daring to protest or question or to express a different view would lead to imprisonment or possibly “disappearing”.

Exercising those rights honors the veterans, it is neither seditionist nor traitorous. And please note that our country not only has room for, but MUST have room for, different stances and viewpoints – left and right, academics and socialists (we are a democratic socialist republic – think about what we share – roads and other infrastructure, defense and other security, a relatively stable economy, schools, assistance to the poor and elderly and other needy, laws which help preserve order -all those shared benefits provided by shared revenues (that’s the socialist part) ).

Though your negative generalizations (filth, stupid feral) are not welcome, they are of course your right – one of the rights for which veterans fought and died – and you are of course free to exercise them, just as the athletes are free to exercise theirs.

The players who are protesting are neither Anti American nor filth.

*The following is not my original piece, but I’m sharing because I think it makes good points*

******
Time to lay down some facts. Sit back, relax, and enjoy.

“People are cutting the Nike swoosh off their clothing, burning their Nike gear, pledging to boycott the company, and otherwise throwing a hissy fit because this company gave a man they despise a job.

Let’s go over how we got here:

1. Kaepernick sat on the bench during the national anthem on August 26, 2016, because he saw the racial disparities in our legal and justice systems and felt that our country—the one our flag and anthem represent—was not living up to its ideals of “liberty and justice for all.”

2. That simple action created an uproar among people who took it as disrespect for the flag and for the veterans who sacrificed for our freedoms. Controversy ensued.

3. Another football player and veteran—former Seahawk and Green Beret, Nate Boyer—saw this go down. He wrote to Kaepernick, sharing support for the basis of his protest but explaining why sitting during the anthem created such a visceral response in some people, including himself.

4. Kaepernick invited Boyer to meet with him. They spoke for 90 minutes, sharing their different perspectives. Kap said he wanted to make his statement without being disrespectful to the military.

5. Boyer suggested that instead of sitting, Kap could kneel during the anthem. Soldiers take a knee when one is wounded. They take a knee at a fellow soldier’s gravesite. They take a knee to pray. Taking a knee is a sign of respect and reverence.

6. Again, Kaepernick wanted to stage his peaceful demonstration while still showing respect for the military, so he talked to a veteran about how to do that. And that veteran suggested he take a knee instead of sitting *because taking a knee is a sign of respect and reverence.*

7. I don’t know how people keep missing this and complaining that Kap and others who have knelt during the anthem are disrespecting the military.

8. We kneel to pray. We kneel to propose marriage. We kneel before royalty. Taking a knee in those instances is a sign of respect and reverence. Soldiers kneel in solidarity with the wounded. Football players themselves kneel when a player is injured and carried off the field.

9. Taking a knee says, “I see you and acknowledge your suffering.” It is always a sign of respect and reverence. Always. Can you think of a situation in which consciously getting down on one knee is not a sign of respect? I can’t.

10. It’s not like Kap flipped a middle finger to the flag or dropped his pants and mooned it. It’s not like he even turned his back on it. He simply didn’t stand, and when he realized that was being misinterpreted, he knelt — at the suggestion of a veteran.

11. Taking a knee during the anthem is NOT a statement AGAINST what the flag stands for. It says America is wounded by racism and injured by injustice. It says to those in our nation who are still not experiencing true liberty and justice, “I see you and acknowledge your suffering.”

12. And it says all of that while ALSO saying, “I respect the sacrifices made by those who fight to protect our freedoms”— because, once again, taking a knee is a sign of respect.

13. The flag and anthem belong to all of us. They are symbols of our ideals of “liberty and justice for all.” If some of our citizens are still not experiencing true liberty and real justice, then our flag and our anthem are not representing the nation as we think they are.

14. And that is why these protests are happening. We need to acknowledge that there’s more than one way to fight for your country, and stop questioning the patriotism of a man who has sacrificed his career and reputation trying to make America a more just place for all.

Oh SHUT THE HELL UP!! Do you have a clue how sick and tired the silent majority is of you liberals and your incessant use of the word RACISM whenever you lose an argument with an American Patriot?! We are all sick of it. Kapernick is a MUSLIM! Muslims/Islam, Communism and Socialism have enslaved, tortured, and murdered more innocent men women and children than any other ideologies in the history of mankind. Muslims believe in beating women, stoning women, clitorectomy of little girls, beheading, and silencing the lower than dirt female sex and only use them to procreate and you try to tell us we are racist?! Kapernick is a Muslim, which means he follows Sharia Law above the Constitution, WHICH MEANS he believes in everything from pedophilia to child brides!!! And he has the NERVE to protest our military for keeping his scrawny ugly ass safe so he can play a game that made him a millionaire when no other country except America even cares about American football. “SPITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU!” I can’t stand him, he is ugly inside and out, and I hope to HELL the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds do NOT give the NFL SUPER BOWL the fly over and I hope to HELL the military never participates at another NFL game again. Arrogant Neanderthals don’t even appreciate the FACT that our military men and women gave them the right to disrespect our flag and make millions while the cowards play a game and make way too much money. I am ashamed of all of them, and I have never, and will never watch another NFL game. It is all college for me, much more exciting plus, many are doing away with their NIKE’S if they had them.

I agree, I think Nike just FU big time. I think if you mess with the American population, you’ve created a massive problem for your business future, but I guess they will learn soon enough. Only time will tell, but I think that the NFL has already found out what happens when you side with a losing situation (the kneeling situation or Kaepernick) some people have said that Nike will not go bankrupt, but I wouldn’t put any money on it.

I never bought Nike because their shoes are too expensive for my blood. So no loss there. H the However I will say that after this stunt, all patriotic Americans should take a serious look at Nike’s having put politics into their marketing. This anti American , disrespect for Flag and Anthem and all it stands for has no place in place in the sneaker market. Now that Nike has revealed its politics, those who disagree are free to buy other brands. By the looks of Nike’s losses these past few days, perhaps they should have kept their politics to them selves. Burn baby burn!

All patriotic Americans? Anti American disrespect? What is more quintessentially American than the rights to dissenting speech and to peaceful quiet protest? And to peacefully point out that this is an imperfect union, when those of a minority race are more likely to be shot or imprisoned or negatively stereotyped than those of the majority race.

And what is more patriotic than respecting those rights? Veterans fought and died for the rights that the athletes are expressing, and for Americans’ rights to respect or NOT respect the athletes’ rights. It seems that those Veterans’ sacrifices may be for nought if those respecting their sacrifices by exercising those rights are so widely criticized for so doing.

If Nike wants to be a winner,they shouldn’t pick a loser to be a spokesperson. What the NFL protests is not possible,there is no such thing as social justice in a free country. They have been brain-washed by Obama,he recently told them to continue to be victims and keep protesting. What a sad end for someone that became an office holder in the best country ever. What Obama promotes is just Communism where they control all people,even the protesters will not end up in a good way if they got what they say they want.

The America I was born into still had many of the foundational principles that our Founding Fathers established. To start with, America was a republic, not a democracy and was never intended to be. The difference between the two has been totally lost on many Americans today. What’s the difference? A republic is where the people elect leaders to do the bidding of the majority of the people. A democracy is where the people elect leaders who rule and dictate over them. A republic is a free nation whereas a democracy is the first step towards socialism.
The 2nd Amendment is needed to protect ourselves from tyranny !!!

Calling this a boycott is a colossal understatement. The NFL fan base was split and one side has been permanently alienated. Similarly, Nike’s customer base is split with an angry side that will never be back. Too bad because football was a Sunday afternoon tradition and many who stopped watching football now also won’t purchase Nike products. Kaepernick has reduced demand for one entire industry and a major manufacturer of athletic products. Who’s next?

NIKE JUST DID IT… They made a foolish choice and I hope it ruins them. Pres Trump is correct, as a Company they have the right to make THEIR choices as they see fit. They now get to answer to their board of directors why their stock is down 4 billion dollars, I can tell you this is not a fun conversation to have. It sounds like once they got rid of many “older” executives that they’re now being run by a group of “younger”, less wise individuals. I’ve seem this before in the CORP world and it usually ends badly for them. Personally, I don’t invest in NIKE & I certainly don’t buy NIKE or their other brands. I hope they implode and their overpaid execs are in the unemployment line right behind the NFL tools.

Let’s face it. Racism is a two way street. There are racists in all races. And the general term discriminate applies to everyone. We all discriminate against someone, even the govt, ever the two political parties. IMO the CR Act making discrimination a crime is just anther form of prohibitiion. Prohibition made drinking a crime and spawned a massive crime wave. Discrimination law has also spawned a massive law suit wave and has been a blessing for trouble makers to endlessly threat others with law suits And like prohibition which did not end drinking, the prohibition of discrimination has not and will not eliminate discrimination. Discrimination, like stealing, is a sin and no govt has the power to eliminate sin of any kind. And like Prohibition the CR Act is a clear example of the cure being worse than the disease.
