Nike Pulls Patriotic Sneakers on Orders From Colin Kaepernick

Nike has deep-sixed patriotic sneakers featuring the original Betsy Ross flag because vehemently anti-American washed-up former football player Colin Kaepernick expressed disapproval.

Kaepernick, best known for indulging in disrespectful antics when the national anthem was played during his bygone football career, proclaims that the original flag of the USA is offensive. So Nike, which has positioned itself as the official sneaker company of the radical Left by paying Kaepernick to represent it, pulled the shoe after it had already been sent to retailers.

The sneaker giant created the Air Max 1 USA in celebration of the July Fourth holiday, and it was slated to go on sale this week. The heel of the shoe featured a U.S. flag with 13 white stars in a circle, a design created during the American Revolution and commonly referred to as the Betsy Ross flag. …

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…

Anything associated with the Enlightenment, which gave birth to America, must be erased because there was still slavery during this period, as there had always been.

To give a hostile cockroach like Colin Kaepernick veto power over our heritage is the most disgusting thing to come out of a moonbattery-addled corporation yet. The most sacred symbols of America now face consignment to the memory hole as thought crimes.

If it were up to Nike, the Fourth of July would be canceled, because apparently Kaepernick finds that offensive too.
