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:

PROTEST OF ICE IN PHILLY HITS FOURTH STRAIGHT DAY

Philadelphia, PA

For the fourth day in a row, protesters in Philly set up shop right outside of ICE’s Philadelphia headquarters at 8th & Cherry streets. And for the fourth straight day, Philadelphia police officers were called in to break up the sit-in.

Action News Philly (@6abc) reports, the protesters camped out outside the ICE office and demanded an immediate end to the separation and jailing of migrant families at the US-Mexico border. According to reports, the police repeatedly asked protesters to move from in front of the entrance to the ICE building. After three warnings police moved in. Ripping up makeshift tents and making arrest as they pushed the protesters away from the building. 29 protesters were arrested earlier this week. No official numbers yet on how many went to jail today.

“We are protecting their right to protest as well as trying to keep the streets open and trying access to this building. There are multiple businesses in this building so we have to make sure these entrances are kept open.” Deputy Commissioner Of Special Operations, Dennis Wilson said. Protesters said they are calling for the abolition and defunding of ICE, and are expected to keep up the protest until they get just that

PITTSBURGH POLICE ANTICIPATING A ROBERT MUELLER FIRING AND PROTEST. ASKED TO WEAR RIOT GEAR TO WORK THURSDAY

PITTSBURGH, PA

 

 

 

I’m guessing that the Pittsburgh Police Department knows something that we don’t. Pittsburgh police detectives will report for work wearing full riot gear on Thursday, in anticipation of a large scale protest should Donald Trump decide to fire Robert Mueller.

 

 

 

The New York Daily News (@NYDailyNews) reports, Major Crimes Commander, Victor Joseph instructed his unit to bring “a full uniform and any issued protective equipment (riot gear) to work until further notice, WPXI.com reported.

 

 

 

The memo was issued based on “information of a large scale protest in the Central Business District.”

 

 

 

“There is a belief that President Trump will soon move to fire Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. This would result in a large protest within 24 hours of the firing. The protest would be semi-spontaneous and more than likely happen on short notice.” The memo read.

 

 

 

It’s not clear what information Joseph has received to make him call for detectives to be ready with riot gear at this particular moment, but, like Trump always like to say “I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.”

TOPLESS WOMAN CHARGES AT BILL COSBY AT COURTHOUSE

NORRISTOWN, PA

 

 

 

A wild scene took place outside of a Norristown, PA courthouse as Bill Cosby was making his way into the building during his retrial on charges of drugging multiple women. A topless woman appeared out of nowhere and seemed to charge at the comedian. The topless woman had multiple messages painted on her body, including “women” and what appears to be the word “feminism.” Cosby barely reacted to the commotion. It’s not clear if Cosby’s vision is impaired or if he just wasn’t aware of what was taking place around him. Cosby’s lawyers however, looked stunned as the protester took her stance. Nearby police quickly rushed in to subdue the topless protester.
