PHOTOS: Nike Pulls USA-Themed Shoe After Anthem Kneeler Kaepernick Says It’s Offensive

OH MY GAHHHH….

Anthem-kneeling ex-quarterback Colin Kaepernick is back in the news.

Because of his close ties with Nike (remember that “sacrifice” campaign he did?), Colin got the shoe and apparel giant to pull their Fourth of July-themed shoes before they went on sale.

Because all it takes is just one social justice warrior to ruin the fun for everyone, these days.

From Fox News:

Nike nixed the released of the Air Max 1 USA after having already sent the sneakers to retailers because the protesting quarterback said he felt the use of the Betsy Ross flag was offensive and carried slavery connotations, sources told The Wall Street Journal.

[…]

Citing people familiar with the matter, the Journal’s report stated: “After images of the shoe were posted online, Mr. Kaepernick, a Nike endorser, reached out to company officials saying that he and others felt the Betsy Ross flag is an offensive symbol because of its connection to an era of slavery.”

PHOTOS:

Former Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa became a multi-millionaire overnight when he was selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the second overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft.

On top of that, he got a shout out from the most powerful man in the entire world.

The reason?

Because liberals are now calling out Bosa for sending a tweet where he referred to anthem-kneeling quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a “clown,” and POTUS clearly wanted to show his support for the young man.

Trump’s words:

Congratulations to Nick Bosa on being picked number two in the NFL Draft. You will be a great player for years to come, maybe one of the best. Big Talent! San Francisco will embrace you but most importantly, always stay true to yourself. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

From Daily Caller:

Bosa, the number two overall pick in this year’s NFL draft, apologized Friday night for a series of now deleted social media posts made over the last several years that some found offensive, including a tweet calling former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick a “clown.”

Bosa said, “I’m sorry if I hurt anybody. I definitely didn’t intend for that to be the case. I think me being here (San Francisco) is even better for me as a person, because I don’t think there’s anywhere, any city, that you could really be in that would help you grow as much as this one will. I’m going to be surrounded with people of all different kinds, so I’m going to grow as a person. I’m going to be on my own. I’m going to grow up, I’m gonna learn a lot of new things. It’s exciting.

He added, “No. It wasn’t directed toward that. It’s not like I’m saying his stance and what he was doing — that’s not what I was talking about at all. It was just a specific thing that happened, and me, as a young kid, a thought popping into my head and, boom, decided to tweet it out. Bad decision. I respect what he’s done. If it empowers anybody, then he’s doing a good thing. I apologize for that.

Save conservative media!

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: If Bernie Is Nominee, Democrats Will ‘Lose 49 States’ to Trump

A landslide could soon be coming…

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews has been warning Democrats for a little while now. None of them seem to be listening, though. The radically far-left TV host is saying that if Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) becomes the liberal party’s nominee, Trump wins a second term in the White House. Period. And he won’t just win the general election by a slim margin, either. Nope. Trump will win in an absolute landslide. His words. Check it, via Daily Wire: Leftist MSNBC host Chris Matthews said on Tuesday that if socialist Bernie Sanders wins the Democratic nomination for president that Democrats will lose 49 states to President Donald Trump. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgOHUEKjsSg&feature=emb_logo Matthews wants California Rep. Adam Schiff (D) to get into the race. That’s how desperate they’re getting.

He makes it clear that he’s a full-on socialist and he’s not ashamed of it – for whatever reason. If president, the 2020 hopeful says private insurance companies will go bye-bye and you will certainly pay more in taxes. Bernie noted, “What Medicare For All does is it eliminates your private health insurance…premiums. You’re not going to be paying that. You’re not going to be paying co-payments. You’re not going to be paying deductibles. …Will you be paying more in taxes? Yes you will!” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAgZj7QXpDE

Flashback: New Survey Shows Dems Are More Easily Influenced Than Republicans [Details]

Something to always keep in mind…

John Salvatore

Published

TV. Films. Hollywood. Liberals are far more easily influenced by what they see on screens then Republicans. Some may even venture to call them…dare I say…more gullible? Here’s the scoop, per Daily Wire: On Tuesday, Morning Consult and The Hollywood Reporter (THR) released a report regarding the extent to which television and film influence Americans. The poll, which was conducted from June 13-17, and broken down into every subcategory imaginable, asked 2,200 adults if, and to what degree, TV shows and films about racism, sexism, LGBTQ people, climate change, and other issues changed their perception. Continued: There were some fascinating trends, but perhaps the most interesting was that, across every major category, Democrats were more likely to have their perception influenced by Hollywood than Republicans. Ah, the Golden State. A liberal haven that continues its descent into a socialist utopia, rife with high taxes, crime, illegal aliens, and homelessness. A new poll concerning California is great news for President Trump and terrible for liberal lawmakers. From Fox News: President Trump is more popular with Californians than the state’s overwhelmingly Democratic legislature, a new poll says. California Governor Gavin Newsom is even more liberal than his predecessor, Jerry Brown. In case you weren’t aware, Jerry Brown was pretty friggin’ liberal. Newsom, a former mayor and lieutenant governor who despises ICE, is expected to soon push for universal health care and free community college. Free preschool, too. His wife will be referred to as the “first partner” of the Golden State. You know, because “first lady” is apparently too oppressive now, too. Check out her Twitter:
