Over Labor Day weekend, Nike released a 30th anniversary ad of the “Just Do It” campaign, featuring none other than the washed up Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick, the new face of Nike, is pictured proudly with the slogan, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” Seriously?
It goes without mentioning that Kaepernick’s short-lived career in the NFL was anything but successful. Oh, and let’s not forget that since his little feelings were hurt after not being re-signed this year, he thought it best to sue the NFL for damages and collusion not to higher him. Maybe he should take a look at his stats before wasting his money in a legal battle to make himself feel better about his lack of athleticism.
But, wait! Money is surely not an issue for Colin Kaepernick after signing his million dollar deal with Nike. The “social justice warrior” has made bank after exercising his First Amendment right’s by kneeling for the Nation Anthem.
So, were the words “sacrificing” and “everything” really appropriate words to use for campaign they chose Kaepernick to be the face of? What has he sacrificed? Playing time he wasn’t getting in the first place?
If Nike wanted to use such a powerful slogan, maybe they should’ve considered the face of an actual American hero like Pat Tillman. While his photo has been circulating in social media recently, it is imperative to note that he actually sacrificed everything. He gave up his position with the Cardinals (that had a better record than Kaepernick – just saying) after the 9/11 attacks to fight for his country, where he lost his life. If anyone deserves to be the poster child for a slogan about sacrifice, it’s him.
But, instead, Nike would rather glorify a spineless kid like Colin Kaepernick who doesn’t have decency to pay respect to the men and women who have died to give him the right to exercise Freedom of Speech.
I’m quite confident that Adidas and Under Armour are thankful for this publicity stunt put on by Nike. The company has already lost over $4 billion dollars in a few short days with their approval rating continuing to drop. This ad has done exactly what they wanted it to do – get people talking. Nike is in the news now more than ever. While I don’t plan to be burning any of my old Nikes, you can best bet they will not be getting another dollar of mine.

SICK: American Icon Plymouth Rock Vandalized, Spray-Painted in Massachusetts
It’s likely the vandalism is an anti-American hate crime.
An icon of American heritage and civilization, Plymouth Rock, was found vandalized and spray-painted upon Monday morning by criminals at its namesake in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
Plymouth Rock symbolizes the first arrival of the pilgrims from England in North America in 1620 A.D. The vandalism was found just weeks before a ceremony intended to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the pilgrim’s arrival in Massachusetts.
The large boulder is marked with the characters ‘1620’ to symbolize the pilgrims’ arrival. The rock was the first sight of those who disembarked from the Mayflower in the New World.
It’s unclear what the red spray-paint on the rock is intended to convey, but there’s a strong possibility the vandalism is motivated by hatred towards the icon of American culture.
In addition to the rock, the spray-paint vandals also targeted a nearby statue intended to commemorate the first pilgrims to arrive in North America.
We are saddened and sickened by the recent vandalism in our historic town. This is just one of our historic monuments that was hit. We will begin clean up as soon as possible and the police are investigating. pic.twitter.com/kQeTxO7sor

It’s also noteworthy that the vandalism was found on President’s Day, suggesting a further possibility of anti-American hatred as a motivation.
400th anniversary celebrations of the pilgrims’ arrival are scheduled for April, and to this day are a point of pride for many of their descendants who live in Massachusetts.
The director of a Plymouth cultural and tourism agency, Lea Filson, expressed her disappointment to see the icon of America so disrespected.
“Seeing this type of disrespect for the historic reminders of the Mayflower story is both sad and unsettling. The outpouring of concern and anger over the incident has been a positive ending to a thoughtless gesture.”
The town of Plymouth has already removed the vandalism from the rock, and local police are investigating to locate the culprits.
