Fraternal Order of Police Releases Statement Slamming Nike for Propping Up Cop-Hater Colin Kaepernick
Colin Kaepernick started a national uproar after kneeling during the National Anthem at NFL games as a commentary against alleged police abuse of African-Americans.
Kaepernick took it a step further when he wore ‘cops as pigs’ socks at his football practice.
Kaepernick was cheered and celebrated on the left for his slam on the country and police officers.
On Monday Nike announced they were hiring Colin Kaepernick for their 30th Anniversary advertising campaign.
On Tuesday the Fraternal Order of Police released a statement on Nike’s latest hire.
The statement was a powerful statement.
“If Nike chooses to create an ad campaign featuring a former quarterback who describes cops as ‘pigs’ and makes large donations to the family of a convicted cop killer and wanted fugitive, Joanne Chesimard, who murdered New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster in cold blood in 1973, they are free to do so.
“Since 2016, 381 officers 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.
“Ultimately, this ad campaign will end and our nation will no longer associate ‘sacrifice’ and ‘sneakers.’ Instead, we will once again associate ‘sacrifice’ with our fellow Americans in our military and police departments who stand in harm’s way to protect the rest of us and our right to express ourselves.”
The Fraternal Order of Police released a statement on Tuesday slamming Nike for their shameful act.
