Mike Rowe Takes Nike And Colin Kaepernick Apart Over Betsy Ross Flag Controversy

This guy is pure genius, the sage of our modern day.

There’s no doubt that former ‘Dirty Jobs’ host Mike Rowe is one of the coolest dudes around, a man who rocks common sense like a three-piece Armani suit. In a world where common sense and balanced, non-emotional responses to hot button issues are sorely lacking, Rowe is a modern-day sage providing relief from the insanity.

Rowe recently decided to weigh in on the latest controversy with Nike and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick concerning the pulling of a Betsy Ross flag shoe from release due to political correctness.

His dismantling of these two is classic Rowe that everyone needs to hear.

“I think Nike has the right to decorate their shoes with whatever flag they desire,” wrote Rowe. “I think Kaepernick has the right to offer marketing advice to any company that’ll take it. And I think you and I have the right to purchase whatever brand of tennis shoes we choose.”

Nike was lambasted by many critics after it was reported that they cancelled the sale of a Fourth of July shoe that would bear the first design of the American flag because their marketing spokesman Colin Kaepernick complained.

Rowe said there was nothing “inherently dangerous” with Nike choosing to market their shoes with a left-wing worldview. But he also said that there was a danger with erasing the past.

On the other hand, I think Ronald Reagan was right when he said we’re always one generation away from losing the freedoms we currently enjoy. Along with the siren song of socialism, the persistent promise of “free” stuff, and the breathtaking level of censorship on our college campuses, I worry about the growing belief among many that we can somehow improve our present by erasing our past; by toppling statues, outlawing “problematic” symbols, or rewriting specific pieces of our history in ways that leave us feeling less offended.

Rowe went on to argue that Kaepernick’s rejection of the Betsy Ross flag was “completely void of logic.”

“In other words, we can’t deny Kapernick’s right to speak his mind, but we shouldn’t ignore the flaws in his thinking. He has argued that the Betsy Ross flag is ‘racist,’ because it flew at a time when slavery was legal in America. By that definition, aren’t crosses are also racist? Weren’t they on churches attended by slave-owning congregants? Why not demand their removal?” he asked.

“What about the Bald Eagle?” he continued. “Wasn’t our national bird flying around when slaves were held? Why not protest it as well? What about the Great Seal? E Pluribus Unum? The Liberty Bell? It rang countless times while slavery was still the law of the land. Why not demand its removal? Kaepernick’s argument is unpersuasive, not because it’s unpopular, or unpatriotic.

“It’s unpersuasive because it’s completely void of logic,” Rowe concluded.

It’s no wonder the left hates this guy. He just uses the old gray matter rattling around in his skull and logically applies basic principles of common sense to every day problems and comes up with coherent answers and solutions that should be obvious to anyone with two brain cells to rub together.

Unfortunately, it seems the folks in charge of making laws and coming up with solutions to the issues pressing our nation are dumber than a box of rocks because they never come up with anything that isn’t some hair-brained scheme to trample the rights of American citizens and grab power for themselves in the process.

Then again, that might just be their endgame.

Regardless, it’s great to know there are still people out there who use their intelligence to wade into cultural battles like this one without being partisan. It’s hard to do that, but Rowe manages to do it well.

Save conservative media!

Watch: 2020 Democrat Joe Biden Thinks COVID-19 Is Called the ‘Luhan’ Virus

It’s Wuhan, Joe. Wu-han.

More often than not, 2020 liberal frontrunner Joe Biden doesn’t know what he’s saying. If he does, he’s not doing a great job of communicating his thoughts with the American people. You’d think his campaign would keep him out of the spotlight, considering he has his party’s nomination all but secured. But nope. Joe is still doing interviews and saying silly things that prove he has no business within 500 feet of the White House. WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1243686891368722437?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1243686891368722437&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F03%2Fwhat-is-wrong-with-old-joe-biden-refers-to-wuhan-coronavirus-as-luhan-virus-video%2F From Washington Examiner: Joe Biden’s campaign said the candidate has yet to take the coronavirus test because he is unaware of any contact with the disease. “Vice President Biden has no fever, no cough, no shortness of breath or other symptoms consistent with coronavirus,” the campaign said in a Friday statement. “And the campaign has not been informed of or become aware of any relevant contact with an individual who has tested positive.” Joe isn’t in favor of a travel ban, apparently. From Breitbart: Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) is refusing to listen to the advice of the nation’s leading medical experts, continuing his opposition to travel bans in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus in the United States. President Donald Trump’s administration has implemented travel bans on China, Iran, and most of Europe to stop the outbreak of the coronavirus in the U.S. Leading medical experts said this week that 30 states now have coronavirus cases due to international travel with Europe, from where 70 percent of the world’s new cases are now originating.

Michael Rapaport will never win an award for being politically brilliant. Accordingly, the actor isn’t likely to be named the most handsome man on earth, either. Once again, Rapaport has decided to show the nation that he’s not only ugly on the outside, but on the inside, too. Check this out, via The Blaze: Far-left actor Michael Rapaport — who earlier this week called first lady Melania Trump a “dumb animal” — dropped a payload of F-bombs against President Donald Trump and most of his offspring Wednesday, including his teen son Barron, and wanted to see them all exposed to the coronavirus.
