relates to Nike Pulls ‘Betsy Ross Flag’ Sneakers After Kaepernick ComplaintNike Pulls ‘Betsy Ross Flag’ Sneakers After Kaepernik Complaint. We guess Kaepernik is now in charge of Nike. Here’s to hoping they turn into the Dick’s Sporting Goods of sportswear. In the meantime no more Nike anything for us. Good for Governor Ducey, too.

Nike Inc.’s decision to pull Fourth of July sneakers from stores because they featured a “Betsy Ross Flag” has dragged the sports apparel maker once again into America’s culture wars and drew ire from conservative lawmakers claiming political correctness has gone too far.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, a Republican, tweeted that he was “embarrassed” for Nike and said he had “ordered the Arizona Commerce Authority to withdraw all financial incentive dollars” that the state was planning to offer the company to open a manufacturing plant near Phoenix. Republican Senator Ted Cruz tweeted that it’s a good thing Nike “only wants to sell sneakers to people who hate the American flag.”

Maybe they could just make Colin Krapersack shoes with little commie flags on them, and then he could wear them and have the bottom blow out…Crappy shoes, crappy company, with a marketing genius whop hates America….

Be more appropriate if you tied the laces of the commie shoes and then discovered you can’t untie them.

I bought a Nineline shirt a while back after someone mentioned them here, and they have really good shit. In fact, my sister liked my shirt so much she bought a similar one for my dad, only his is a D-Day shirt.

They do indeed. Now they have joined with Black Rifle Coffee. I’ve got several of their shirts and I PROUDLY wear them. Mark “Oz” Geist has also joined them and has designed a really cool shirt.

AOC would’ve rocked those Betsy’s on her recent ‘dressed in all white’ border trip. Wait…

Nike, DICKS and Knealpernik all deserve the Ménage à trois that they have created.

Kaepernick and Nike deserve each other. I haven’t forgotten about Nike. I still leave Nike golf balls when I find them, on the ground at the next tee I come to. When people ask why I’m throwing good golf balls away, I tell them I don’t want Nike crap sullying my golf bag. That’s my method of keeping Nike’s America-hating on people’s minds.

Bring a Sharpie and write “nike blows” on them before dropping them on a tee box.
Or you could toss them in a water hazard.
