Week two of the NFL is over and Colin Kaepernick remains jobless.
Yet he’s consistently in the news with his collusion case against the NFL and his latest anti-American advertisement with Nike.
And these new numbers about the protests and the Nike ad will startle you.
Colin Kaepernick loves the attention.
There’s no other way to look at it. He could be playing in the NFL if he actually accepted offers from teams but he thinks he’s still a starter.
Kaepernick isn’t a starter.
But Kaepernick’s Nike ad shocked everyone with a bold disgraceful message that read, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”
Kaepernick’s Nike ad shocked everyone with a bold disgraceful message
AQuinnipiac Poll found that two-thirds of voters are okay with the players who kneel for the National Anthem.
And they also found that 49-percent approve of Kaepernick as the face of the Nike ad campaign.
Quinnipiac noted, “Men, 67 – 30 percent, and women, 67 – 31 percent, are almost identical in their support for the right to protest, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University National Poll finds. Black, white and Hispanic voters all support the right to take a knee.”
That means nearly two-thirds of Americans condone anti-American acts.
They don’t care about the countless veterans who gave their lives for our freedoms.
What don’t they understand about patriotism?
Those that support these protesters refuse to acknowledge our military’s sacrifices.
That’s leaves Kaepernick’s Nike ad.
On that issue, Quinnipiac wrote, “American voters approve 49 – 37 percent of Nike’s decision to include Colin Kaepernick in its “Just Do It” ad campaign. There is a wide age gap as voters 18 to 34 years old approve 67 – 21 percent, while voters over 65 years old disapprove by a narrow 46 – 39 percent.”
Nike got political with this ad. That’s dangerous.
The biggest apparel brand in the world kept Kaepernick on payroll even though he hasn’t played a down in the NFL in two years.
That means they planned this all out.
It’s no secret why they did it.
It was all about the timing right before the 2018 season and for the 30th anniversary “Just Do It” slogan.
Nike’s stock dipped on the first day but it bounced back afterward. It hid a record high at $83.90 last Thursday.
During the Labor Day weekend, Nike products jumped up by 31 percent.
But that doesn’t tell the whole story.
Many outraged former Nike fans posted videos burning their clothes.
And President Trump saw that and commented, “Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts.”https://offthewire.com/donald-trump-destroyed-nike-ad-with-these-four-words/
President Trump saw that and commented, “Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts.”
Nike took a huge gamble.
They alienated a lot of patriotic Americans and that 31 percent was a knee-jerk reaction amongst mostly liberals.
Don’t be surprised to see the clothing brand’s stock slip and their clothing sales plummet.
None of this ever needed to happen.
When Kaepernick kneeled for the National Anthem initially, he knew it would divide our country. https://www.americanpatriotdaily.com/latest/anthem-protesters-made-a-surprise-attack-that-could-land-kaepernick-an-nfl-job/
He didn’t care.
This is all good for his “branding.”
His brand now is a “martyr.”
That couldn’t be further from who he actually is.
Even Stephen A. Smith of ESPN’s First Take admitted that he’s loved every minute of this and he has no interest in playing football again.
