Julian Castro Latest Idiot Democrat to Praise Nike, Compares Betsy Ross Flag to Confederate Flag… Has NO IDEA She Was an Abolitionist
Democrat presidential contender Julian Castro was the latest Democrat to praise Nike for banning the American Betsy Ross flag for the 4th of July.
Nike thinks it’s racist.
Nike is a US company that makes millions off of slave labor.
Julian Castro obviously has NO IDEA that Betsy Ross was a Quaker and an abolitionist… She lived in Philadelphia where slavery was illegal. Quakers were against slavery and protested against slavery. And Ross never owned slaves.
These leftists truly hate America more than they love history.
The Washington Times reported:
Democratic presidential hopeful Julián Castro on Wednesday praised Nike’s controversial decision to pull shoes featuring the Betsy Ross flag, saying the early flag design that represents the Thirteen Colonies evokes pain among some Americans, much like Confederate symbols.
“I was glad to see that,” the former Housing and Urban Development Secretary said on CBS News about Nike’s decision to scrap the Betsy Ross design, the Washington Free Beacon reported. “And my hope is that they didn’t just do it to do it — that they understand the significance there.
“Look, there are a lot of things in our history that are still very painful — the Confederate flag that still flies in some places and is used as a symbol,” Mr. Castro continued. “And I believe that we need to move toward an inclusive America that understands that pain — that doesn’t wipe it away from history in the sense that it still belongs in a museum, or we need to read about it and understand the significance, because that’s how you learn and make sure that we don’t make the same mistakes in the future — but does not glorify it, does not celebrate it.”
Here’s the video.
What a dummy.
Julian Castro agrees with Nike pulling Betsy Ross American flag shoes.
Then goes on to suggest the flag was a painful thing.
