NIKE ANNOUNCES NEW “JUST DO IT” AD FEATURING COLIN KAEPERNICK. TRUMP FANATICS REACT BY BURNING THEIR OWN NIKE GEAR

By: KAREEM RAHMAN

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of its “Just Do It” slogan, Nike decided to do something big. That something big, likely included plans to do something controversial. If we learned anything at all from 2018, it’s that controversy sells. So it only made sense that Nike would include the man who’s probably the most controversial figure in sports and sports talk today, in their ad campaign. Colin Kaepernick. The man who has been credited with starting the National Anthem protest which Donald Trump managed to convince his followers was all about disrespecting the military.

Of course we all know the protest had absolutely nothing to do with the military. The peaceful protest were supposed to be a way to bring attention to an issue many people in this country wanted to pretend didn’t exist. Police brutality. Especially when it comes to black people, who it sometimes feel like police hunt and kill for sport. Even after a clear explanation of what the protest were about, Trumpers still managed to make it all about disrespecting the military…… because that’s what their patriotic, military-loving, law & order president told them it was about. No need to take a look at the alarming number of black people being brutalized and killed by police every day all across the country. We see video of, or watch stories of this on the news it feels like almost every single day. The president told them not to believe their own eyes and ears, but believe him….And they did, and do.

The point being……idiots decided to destroy their own stuff that they paid money for because a Nike ad features Colin Kaepernick.

Ah yes! The old destroy your own shit to own the liberals. That’ll show them!

I have an idea for all of the people who are so mad about the “disrespect shown to the military” by kneeling during the national anthem. And are so mad about this that they will destroy their own clothes. I know this may sound completely insane, but couldn’t you do more for homeless vets and vets who may not be doing so well financially by donating those clothes to them instead of destroying them? I mean, I know it sounds crazy that you would even consider helping those same vets that you say the protest disrespect and you love dearly, but why don’t you give that a try before you put images of yourself destroying your clothes on social media for likes and retweets. You’ll probably feel better helping someone in need than you will feel about watching your likes and retweets add up…….but then again, maybe you won’t. Maybe your actions and outrage aren’t about your love for the military and law enforcement at all, but all about likes, retweets, attention, and your collective beliefs that black people should shut up and be grateful that you allow us to live in “your” country. You know, RACISM. Besides, where was all of this faux outrage when your courageous leader continuously disrespected and degraded a war hero/veteran as he was dying of cancer??? Where is your outrage as your fearless leader continues to attack law enforcement every day by calling a legitimate investigation that’s looking into who betrayed “your” country, a “witch hunt”????

Just a little food for thought on this beautiful September morning. Don’t be shy or hesitant to add to, or dispute my thoughts below in the comments section:

KFC IN THE PROCESS OF ROLLING OUT VEGETARIAN FRIED CHICKEN

This is the type of thing that bothers me about “healthy living” type of people. They go out of their way to “dog” people for things like smoking, drinking, and…..of course eating fried foods and fast food. They claim there is a huge risk in doing these things that can potentially lead to health issues. I’m completely fine with people feeling that way. If you don’t partake, you don’t partake right? To each its own. But when you dog people for doing something, then go out of your way to do the same thing…with a healthy twist, I can’t help but to wonder who really has the issues?

KFC is now considering rolling out vegetarian fried chicken. Yup, you read that right. Two words that seem like they should never even be spoken in the same sentence are about to be combined by KFC. (Vegetarian/Chicken)

KFC has announced that it was testing a chicken-like vegetarian option in the UK. The food site Delish (@delish) reports, KFC is expected to use its famous signature recipe of 11 herbs and spices in the veg dish.

“Development of the recipe is still in its very early stages, and so the options we’re exploring in our kitchen are still top secret. Once we’ve perfected the recipe, we aim to test with customers this year, and if all goes well, we hope to launch a new vegetarian option in 2019.” A KFC spokesman said in a statement to the site Foodbeast.

TRUMP HITMEN, FOX NEWS CARRIES OUT “HIT JOB” ON PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

WASHINGTON, DC

 

 

 

No player on the Super Bowl winning Eagles team roster took a knee in protest during the playing of the national anthem during the regular season, playoffs, or Super Bowl. I know this, because I’m a hardcore fan of the Philadelphia Eagles and have seen damn near every regular, pre-season, and playoff game the Eagles have been involved in for over 20 years. Myself, and those who may not be Eagles fans are not the same. But let’s say that you’re not a hardcore Eagles fan like myself, and don’t know much about this team. Let’s even go a step further and say that you’re not a fan of football at all. Never even watched a full NFL game in your life. If a person you looked to defend, no matter what crazy thing came out of their mouths, told you that Eagles players were uninvited from attending the White House because the players on the team took a knee during the national anthem, you would probably believe what that person said without needing any proof whatsoever. Those who maybe thought they were a little smarter would search for proof in an attempt to validate their hero’s words for anyone who may be a non-believer. If that person was as smart as they claimed, they would do some real research and discover that their hero was a bold-faced liar. Those who weren’t so smart would dig for proof of their point and find this:

 

 

 

These are a few of the first images that pop up in a search when you google “Eagles kneel.” Anybody who knows anything about football knows that these pictures don’t fit the narrative of what Trump said about Eagles players disrespecting the flag and military by kneeling during the national anthem. We all know that during the playing of the anthem, players are standing very closely together side by side. Common sense would tell you that these photos could not have been taken during the playing of the national anthem. Fox News knew this when they decided to use pictures they found in a google search to try to bring some truth to Trump’s lying words. The crazy thing is, they didn’t care. They honestly thought they were going to get away with this blatant lie. Sure, many people who buy into the Fox propaganda on a daily basis took the bait and parroted the Fox message, like Fox knew they would, but an overwhelming number of people called Fox out and called this what it was……A HIT JOB. Make no mistake about it, this was a smear job on the Philadelphia Eagles by Fox News. Why? To attempt to make the words of a liar, truth. This is what Fox News does all day every single day, and they usually get away with it.

Of course, Fox News apologized for the so-called “error” hours later, but the damage had already been done. To the brain-dead, daily, Fox News viewers, their minds were already made up that this was the absolute truth. It was what the president of the United States said and it was what their most trusted news source, Fox News said.

 

The apology was weak and not really sincere, and like I said, the damage had already been done. An obvious lie had been fed to a brain-dead, naive audience as truth, and they quickly ran with the lie and parroted it over and over as truth. This is a hit job. Not even a good one, but still…..a hit job. Let’s be clear. This is not about the military. This is not about the national anthem. This isn’t even really about the right to protest. This whole thing is about Donald Trump and his fragile ego. Trump, always one to look for a photo-op and an opportunity to have people publicly kiss his ass, had his feelings hurt when he discovered that not enough players on the Eagles team were showing up for his liking. Out of a team with a 53-man roster and a coaching staff in the dozens, only about 10 people confirmed they were coming to the White House. That clearly was not a big enough ass-kissing session-photo op, for Trump. So Trump canceled the whole visit. In true Trump fashion, not only did he cancel the visit, but he felt a need to make the Eagles look like the bad guys in this whole thing to his supporters. What better way to make people look like the bad guy to a base that lives for fake patriotism, division, and racial conflict than to accuse people of being disrespecting to the very thing that group claims to hold so dearly? The flag and the military. Trump even attempted to shift the narrative of the “kneeling” narrative this afternoon after Fox caught the negative feedback over their lie pushing agenda.

No player on the Philadelphia Eagles team ever stayed in the locker room during the playing of the national anthem. Of course, Eagles fans already know that. So does Fox News. So does anyone with any common sense. Donald Trump has recklessly disrespected the NFL and its players on multiple occasions. Better yet, Donald Trump has, and still continues to use the NFL and its players as whipping toys whenever he needs to find a story to take the focus off of another story. Trump and his administration claims players don’t want to come to the White House because they are un-American. No, players don’t come to the White House because you are there. YOU ARE UN-AMERICAN.

DID TRUMP RESCIND WH INVITATION TO PHILADELPHIA EAGLES OR ATTEMPT TO SAVE FACE?

WASHINGTON, DC

 

OPINION BY: KAREEM RAHMAN

 

 

 

It’s sad that this is what our Country has come to, but here we are. Just two days after the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl, questions started swirling about whether the Philadelphia Eagles would make the annual Super Bowl winner’s trip to the White House to visit the sitting President Of The United States or not. Coming off of last season’s national anthem controversy, many players on the Eagles team made their positions clear a long time ago. They were not making the trip to the White House this year. Many more players on the team likely came to the same conclusion after last week’s new NFL national anthem policy was announced by the NFL commissioner and owners. My guess, less than half of the Eagles players and staff were still planning to make the White House visit. News was already floating around about it. Clearly Donald Trump was unhappy with the number of players and staff who were still scheduled to appear. And even clearer, Donald Trump couldn’t allow anyone to think this was the case, especially not his MAGA base. He needed to make it look like he didn’t want the Eagles to visit, not the other way around. His ego would not allow that. So Trump and the WH decided to beat the Eagles to the punch before their scheduled visit in a few days by releasing this statement:

This president is not liked, and he just can’t grasp hold of why. Here’s a hint, maybe it’s because you throw tantrums like an 8-year old child when you can’t get your way. How do you refuse a person the right to stand (or kneel) for what they believe in and then expect them to come kiss your ass? That may work in the world of job-seeking ass-kissers in Trump world, but this is America, and in America people have a right to not want to be around someone they do not like or respect and put on a fake smile and kiss ass. This president wants to be a dictator. Here’s the thing about dictators, Mr. Trump. Nobody loves or even likes them. No one voluntarily comes to a party they are invited to by a dictator. They go because they are forced. No matter how many people show up to your rallies and yell at the top of their lungs, you are not loved, liked, or respected in the real world….you would know that if you stepped outside of your protective bubble of ass-kissers every once in a while. Kudos to the Eagles! I respect my hometown team even more for standing up for what they believe in. This is a democracy not a dictatorship. YOU CAN’T FORCE PEOPLE TO LIKE YOU AND PLAY WITH YOU NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU CRY AND THREATEN TO TAKE YOUR BALL AND GO HOME! Your parents should’ve taught you that a long time ago! Enjoy your marching band and hordes of ass-kissing nobodies, because the people whose attention and adoration you crave so dearly will never want to hang out with you. Never did, never will.
