Republican Gov. Doug Ducey announced today that his state of Arizona would be removing “all financial incentive dollars” from the state’s commerce authority toward Nike after they announced they were cancelling a brand of patriotic-themed shoes at the behest of Castro-supporting washed up former NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

“Words cannot express my disappointment at this terrible decision. I am embarrassed for Nike,” Ducey wrote in a subsequent tweet.

“American businesses should be proud of our country’s history, not abandoning it,” Ducey added.

That’s when Ducey lowered the boom on Nike, in a showing of economic patriotism. He made clear that his state would not be rewarding any anti-American behavior from a multinational corporation that has forgotten its roots.

“Arizona’s economy is doing just fine without Nike. We don’t need to suck up to companies that consciously denigrate our nation’s history,” Ducey wrote, before adding that the story of founding mother Betsy Ross should be taught in every school across the nation.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is also piling on the company, urging Americans to join him in boycotting Nike’s products.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Nike pulled their ‘Air Max 1 Quick Strike Fourth of July’ brand of shoes after washed up former NFL player Colin Kaepernick whined about the use of Betsy Ross’ revolutionary-era flag in their design as being racist.

“Nike has chosen not to release the Air Max 1 Quick Strike Fourth of July as it featured the old version of the American flag,” a Nike spokeswoman said to The Journal.

Nike, which has been marketing itself to the anti-American demographic for years as professional sports become increasingly politicized, is finally feeling the sting economically for turning its back on the country in which it was founded.

“The agent told us it was a decision made by and with their PR department in conjunction with management,” he continued.

Social media censorship has become normalized over the last four years. Now, however, this kind of corporate policing is being extended to people’s ability to do banking. Paul Joseph Watson of Summit News observed the following:

While innumerable Trump supporters have lost their Twitter and Facebook accounts due to social media censorship and cancel culture, cases of individuals being cut off by banks and other financial services are now growing too.

The logic of corporate America’s woke crusade is to change people’s behavior by censoring social media activity. In addition, corporate entities will cut off people from basic services to make their lives miserable simply for dissenting against the regime’s official narrative.

Republicans will have to stop worshiping corporations and rethink some of their economic policies. Corporations have too much power in America and are clearly not on the side of the Right. The refusal to recognize this new reality will lead to continued defeats for the Right. It’s time to adapt.
