Nike is currently at the center of a nationwide controversy.
The biggest clothing maker in the world just revealed an advertisement that features disgraced former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. And everyone went nuts over it.
But one pro-America organization put Nike and Kaepernick in their place with this one letter.
Colin Kaepernick hasn’t played one down of football in about two years and yet he remains one of the most “influential” personalities in all of sports.
His actions offended true patriotic Americans while other liberals believe Kaepernick to be the second coming of Martin Luther King Jr.

That’s why Nike revealed Kaepernick as the face of the 30th anniversary of their “Just Do It” slogan campaign. https://offthewire.com/colin-kaepernick-and-nike-just-announced-this-one-thing-that-will-infuriate-you/
Some people were furious. Some people applauded. You can probably guess which is which at this point.
But that’s why we need pro-American voices to step up and put a nail in the coffin on this debate. That’s precisely what the National Fraternal Order of Police is.
And they just blasted Nike in an open letter.
Press Release on Nike
"Since 2016, 381 cops have been killed in the line of duty. They believed in something and sacrificed everything as did the families they left behind. All of the men and women in law enforcement believe in something and are prepared to sacrifice everything" pic.twitter.com/j4OkjUxR4S

There is a lot to unpack here.
It’s important to note that Kaepernick and the other anthem-kneelers who still do it have a constitutional right but not an employee right. That’s a distinct difference.

What was also really unique about this message is that most people probably didn’t know that Kaepernick referred to cops as “pigs.”
And they almost definitely didn’t know that he made large donations to a family of a cop killer.
The Fraternal Order of Police officially exposed Kaepernick as a hypocrite. https://www.americanpatriotdaily.com/featured/colin-kaepernick-accused-trump-of-conspiracy/
Now we’ll see if his NFL brethren will finally realize who Kaepernick truly is.
Nike made a gigantic gamble with this new ad.
It wasn’t just the black and white picture of Kaepernick either.
They also released a commercial advertisement.
You can watch it here. That is, if you want to:

It was a surprise that Nike’s stock only took a two-dollar hit on the New York Stock Exchange when they announced Kaepernick.

The irony with that video is that it’s largely a wholesome point of view.
But that’s not at all what Kaepernick represents.
He kneeled to stir controversy.
Kaepernick made it crystal clear that he doesn’t care about America and its values.

The disgraced athlete couldn’t care less for those that gave their lives for his freedom.
That’s another hypocrisy.
Kaepernick once attacked police officers with some insane logic about a year ago.
He wrote, “A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn’t need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled!”

Notice the “apt” comparison.
That comparison is not only ridiculous but it’s also violently aggressive.
Now Nike has a boycott on their hands.
If you noticed, there were tons of people who uploaded videos of them burning Nike apparel that came from all over America.
However, don’t be naïve.
Nike prepared for this.
They knew exactly what they got themselves into.
The corporate giant probably had dozens of meetings amongst their top executives of the cost benefit analysis of making Kaepernick the face of their new campaign.
You can bet they had experts tell them there would be backlash but it would work out in the end.
But one thing is for sure.
They didn’t bet the beloved Fraternal Order of Police would be one of their biggest boycotters.
