On Monday, Nike revealed they selected former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to be the face of its 30th anniversary of its ‘Just Do It’ campaign.
Nike posted a close up picture of Kaepernick’s face with a caption that read, “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything. #JustDoIt”

Colin Kaepernick ruined the NFL after he started the National Anthem boycott by ‘taking a knee.’
NFL ratings have plummeted since Kaepernick’s National Anthem boycott. Stadiums often have rows and rows of empty seats because Americans are fed up with the politicization of football.
Now it’s Nike’s turn.
Americans immediately launched a boycott against Nike after finding out Kaepernick was chosen to be the face of its campaign.
Nike may hate America but most Americans still love their country.
On Tuesday Tucker Carlson weighed in on Nike’s decision to use Kaepernick as its public face.
Tucker Carlson: It’s factually ludicrous. You can’t give up everything and maintain a Nike contract. It’s the executives profiting on him and his attacks on the United States while simultaneously denying they are attacks on the United States… This is an attack on the country. So it would be very different if he were saying I’m protesting this politician or this policy or this specific person for doing this specific thing. But no, sitting during the National Anthem is a way of making a broad-based generalized and therefore impossible to rebut attack against the country that made him and Nike rich. Again there is something really decadent about that when the most successful people in your society hate the society you’ve got a real problem. It’s a metaphor for our entire ruling class.
