‘Anti-American’: Sen. Josh Hawley rips Nike for pulling flag sneaker

Reported by Washington Times:

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley is slamming Nike after a report that the company pulled an American flag-themed shoe from the market.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Nike pulled a shoe with a colonial-era U.S. flag after former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has a Nike endorsement deal, said he and others found the flag symbol offensive because of its connection to the slavery era.

Hawley in a tweet Tuesday called Nike “anti-American” for the move.

Hawley tweeted: “Nike thinks American flag is symbol of oppression? What planet are you on? Nike gladly allows Chinese Communist Party to tell it what products to sell while building its business around sweatshop labor. Nike is anti-American, pure & simple.”

He says Nike should apologize to Missourians and restart production of the shoe.

    Good post. I study something tougher on different blogs everyday. It is going to always be stimulating to learn content from different writers and follow somewhat something from their store. I’d choose to use some with the content material on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a link in your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.

    Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

    You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be really one thing which I believe I would never understand. It kind of feels too complex and very large for me. I am having a look ahead in your next put up, I’ll attempt to get the cling of it!

    After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me from that service? Many thanks!

    Thanks for your write-up. One other thing is the fact individual American states have their own laws that affect homeowners, which makes it very hard for the our elected representatives to come up with a brand new set of rules concerning foreclosures on people. The problem is that each state features own legal guidelines which may work in a negative manner in terms of foreclosure insurance plans.

    Interesting article. It is quite unfortunate that over the last ten years, the travel industry has had to take on terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, bird flu virus, swine flu, plus the first ever real global downturn. Through everything the industry has really proven to be powerful, resilient in addition to dynamic, acquiring new tips on how to deal with trouble. There are always fresh difficulties and the possiblility to which the industry must just as before adapt and react.
