International sweat shop proprietor and athletic shoe manufacturer Nike was berated for releasing a shoe with a historic Betsy Ross American flag, in particular by the professional protester Colin Kaepernick.
Genesius Times reports that Kaepernick told Nike it shouldn’t use that version of the flag, as he and others consider it an offensive symbol due to its connection to a time when slavery was legal.
In response, the shoe company has released the alternative: a take on the famous communist hammer and sickle USSR flag.
“We’re hoping to appease Kaepernick and all the earnest anti-authoritarian customers we have with this shoe glorifying communism which wasn’t authoritarian at all,” Nike President Phil Cuckerton said.
Nike said that they regularly pull products based on social justice mob rule.
“That’s how we run this company!” Cuckerton added.
Kaepernick was at the top of his game until he converted to Islam and started using his platform to criticize the country that gave him the million-dollar platform by playing a game.
