Arizona Governor Doug Ducey Pushes Back Against Nike

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey earns the highest kudos for pushing back against Nike after it nixed shoes with the original Betsy Ross flag on them because the odious Colin Kaepernick finds American heritage offensive:

In a series of overnight tweets, Ducey announced he is yanking … millions of dollars in state incentives offered to get Nike to build a manufacturing plant in the suburban city of Goodyear.

“Instead of celebrating American history the week of our nation’s independence, Nike has apparently decided that Betsy Ross is unworthy, and has bowed to the current onslaught of political correctness and historical revisionism,” Ducey wrote in a series of tweets early Tuesday.

Extra kudos to Ducey for recognizing that this represents not only the scourge known as political correctness but also an escalation of the liberal War on History, which went into high gear with the campaign to delete any remnant of Southern history and soon escalated to an attack on the flag.

Adds Ducey,

“Arizona’s economy is doing just fine without Nike. We don’t need to suck up to companies that consciously denigrate our nation’s history.”

Here is what Nike’s moonbattery cost it:

The city council in Goodyear, Arizona, voted Monday to approve plans to construct a multimillion-dollar Nike manufacturing plant in the city. The agreement included a promise to waive $1 million in plan review and permit fees and reimburse Nike an additional $1 million as a thank you for the estimated 550 jobs the plant will create.

Fortunately, there is no shortage of jobs in the Phoenix area without handing out money to a company that gives veto power over anything patriotic to a leftist former athlete who literally makes his living nowadays by hating America.

Ducey also noted,

“Words cannot express my disappointment at this terrible decision. I am embarrassed for Nike. Nike is an iconic American brand and American company. This country, our system of government and free enterprise have allowed them to prosper and flourish.”

Compare and contrast withholding free goodies from Nike due to its conspicuous anti-patriotism with the liberal politicians who refuse to allow Chick-fil-A to open restaurants because the Left is at war with the company due to its association with Christianity.

It isn’t hard to distinguish the good guys from the bad guys.
