Kaepernick started the NFL’s National Anthem protest controversy by kneeling for the Anthem in 2016. Players who have joined in the protest say that it is about recognizing unfair treatment of minorities by police.

In August of the same year, Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in the same month, and has been jobless ever since.

But many NFL fans saw it as a sign of disrespect to the brave men and women who serve our nation each day. Fans launched a boycott of the league, which saw a ratings drop of about 10% in the 2017-2018 season.

Those same Americans are lashing out at the Nike brand.

“Only thing he has ‘landed’ in awhile. Good to know Nike supports an ‘oppressed’ crybaby who hates America. ” wrote conservative figure Tomi Lahren.

“Hey  “sacrificing everything’ to ‘believe in something’ is dying while serving your country to defend all our freedoms. It isn’t getting paid millions to star in your advertising campaign. Pathetic,” said hybrid sports and political commentator Clay Travis.

“This is what it looks like to sacrifice everything. I support your protest, but let us be cautious with our words. There is no tomorrow for these men and women, you have the rest of your life in front of you. They died nameless, in a fight most have forgotten, for you,” said retired Navy SEAL Andy Stumpf.

The outrage will likely spill over into a campaign to boycott Nike, with many already Tweeting the hashtag.

Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification

Dangerous harassment.

Published

on

A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.

One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.

He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!

The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.

“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”

Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.

The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.

Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
