DON’T TREAD ON US: Patriotic Americans plant defiant flags at Nike HQ on July 4th

These colors don’t run. Especially not in Nike shoes, as we all now know, now that the shoe company decided the actual concept of America is offensive and our flag is a hate symbol, after a failed football player told them to.

In the ‘woke Olympics’ Nike went for gold and came out in last place. But some folks deserve medals today for what they did to celebrate the Fourth of July, also known as Independence Day if y’all aren’t clear about the point of the holiday.

Every rejection of tyranny starts somewhere, even somewhere small. Perhaps with tea thrown into a harbor, against the yoke of tyranny from a distant despot. Or perhaps someone taking a stand and planting flags in defiance of the tyranny of the social justice mob that currently controls American society.



In this case, Jeff Reynolds with PJ Media reports that though the idea started small and spontaneously on Twitter, throughout the day various folks came by to place their own flags at Nike’s doorstep.

“It’s just unfortunate that we couldn’t get any Betsy Ross flags, but the message is the same,” said one of the people who showed up to add their flag. “We wanted to remind Nike that Colin Kaepernick is simply wrong about the history of the flag.”

It’s not just Nike, and it’s not nothing. The assault on everything that happened before the warriors of woke showed up to preach Armageddon in 12 years and declare our law enforcement to be Nazis just keeps growing. Everything the mob doesn’t like is to be burned and cursed. Today it’s George Washington’s flag. Tomorrow? Maybe the whole city named after him.

Don’t be tricked into thinking that this is all no big deal, either. Or you could find yourself getting crowbarred in the face on the streets of an American city in broad daylight as the police do nothing, because they don’t want to offend the social justice lynch mob.

Read more, and see more pics, from PJMedia about this first of what we hope will be a lot of flags placed outside Nike workplaces.

  1. What a great opportunity for another company to start producing the Betsy Ross flag Tennis Shoes.I would buy one for each member of the Family.

    1. Back in the day they were called sneakers, no? Do only tennis players wear that kind of shoe? I’m not sure who or why they all of a sudden started being called “tennis shoes.” Do you know?

      1. I want to say sneakers were the Low Quarter style shoe and the tennis shoes were the 3-4 inch higher from the floor to the top of shoe.I am only guessing. Thanks SCOPE.

      2. @scope-formerly-pinecone I don’t think it’s “all of a sudden.” I have used the terms “sneakers” and “tennis shoes” interchangeably all my life – and I never play tennis.

      3. @scope-formerly-pinecone I read an article about language a while back and whether you say “sneakers” or “tennis shoes” is a regional thing.

        1. Doc- I think you may be right that it is a regional thing. I also wondered if it might be an age thing also. Where I grew up a century ago 🙂 I never heard them called tennis shoes.

  2. Yeah, it would have been AWESOME to plant the Betsy Ross flags, but I guess the shipments from China need a little more time.

    Haha Colin, you and Nike have just made the Betsy Ross flag the new “hot” item. Congratulations!

    1. I agree, Nike just made the Betsy Ross flag more popular than ever. That’s capitalism baby. There will be many companies that will start producing clothing items with the Betsy Ross flag on them. It’s already started. 🙂

  3. Went to pick my car up from the detail shop today. On the way home I saw a truck flying a rather large Betsy Ross flag. Awesome. I hope Nike goes in the sh-can. I can’t imagine there are that many woke morons in America. Maybe they can survive on international sales. Puke.

  4. If I was the potus I would put some massive get out of our country tariffs on nike!
    btw are the nike shoes still floating around and contaminating our pacific ocean?

    1. You do know that Nike is an American company and headquartered in the US, right? Not sure we should be trying to get rid of our businesses, even if it is just its corporate headquarters.

      Nike and the rest of the major shoe manufactures make their shoes abroad. People sometimes claim that New Balance makes its shoes in the US, but 75% of their shoes are manufactured abroad as well. And of the 25% of the shoes supposedly “Made in the USA,” parts of those shoes (30% in terms of value) are actually made abroad as well. (Regardless, I prefer New Balance because they seem better made and the fit.)

      So unless you are suggesting Trump specifically punish Nike and only Nike for its politics (so doing would be of questionable legality) your plan might make us shoeless, at least in the short term. (What am I thinking? Of course that is what you are suggesting.)

      1. You do realize that sometimes folks are just venting? It’s not always to be taken seriously? Maybe, just maybe, if the government were to go after Nike, in some alternative universe that you and a few others live in, that this same commenter, when the rubber met the road, would object to that. Ever heard of just “Talking s#%t”? I certainly didn’t take the comment seriously, maybe you shouldn’t either.

        1. I try to take people at their word. But even if he is just venting, what’s the harm of setting out how tariffs potentially would potentially hurt us all in this situation. After all, Conservatives have long been philosophically opposed to tariffs. (Well . . . maybe not Populist Conservatives, but that’s an oxymoron anyway.)

        2. ryan- Maybe I’m misunderstanding you here, but-

          “if the government were to go after Nike, in some alternative universe that you and a few others live in”

          What does that even mean ryan? Please explain.

      2. @T_oll You’d better go see an orthopedist about that broken funny bone so that you can recognize satire when it hits you on the head with a rubber chicken.

      3. You prefer New Balance, but then you rag on them for making smart business decisions and giving consumers, like me, the option of buying the more up-scale shoes made in the US (yes, just 75% made in the US) while keeping models competitively priced with Nike, etc. that are 100% made in communist China.

        I prefer New Balance too, but I offer kudos to their executives for finding a way stay in business while still making some shoes in the US for throwbacks like myself willing to pay more for US made products, when available.

        1. I ragged on New Balance? That’s news to me. Accurately describing reality is not “ragging” on anyone. The only reason I brought up New Balance was to point out that even New Balance would be devastated by the kind of tariffs the poster suggests.

          And did it even occur to you that when I say that I buy New Balance because they seem better made that I was supporting their approach with my wallet, where it really counts.

          1. Your attitude and spin are decidedly negative. Facts are what they are, but when you put them in the context of “some people claim” you’re accusing people of lying. They’re not lying. New Balance does make some shoe lines in the US according to standards for percentage of work/product established by the government.

            Many of your downvotes, not that you care, are because of your attitude and jaundiced presentation of facts in the most negative light conceivable. …but you just like pushing other’s buttons as some sort of perverse entertainment.

            1. 1. I never said anyone was lying nor do I think anyone is lying. “Some people” mistakenly believe that all NB are made in the US, and/or that their Made in the USA shoes are 100% made in the US, but these are mistaken assumptions.
              2. The Federal standard is “all or virtually all” of the product must be made in the USA. 70% (of the 25%) is not all or virtually all.

              From the Made in America Movement:

              About a quarter of the shoes New Balance sells in America are churned out of the company’s five New England factories, an oddity at a time when 98% of the shoes sold in the U.S. are imported.

              But New Balance also acknowledges that only about 70% of the value of its Made in USA shoes reflects domestic content and labor. The outer soles, for instance, are imported from China, apparently clashing with what the U.S. government says can be labeled “Made in USA.” The Federal Trade Commission states that a product has to be “all or virtually all” made in the U.S. to qualify. And in the 1990s, the FTC brought an enforcement action against New Balance over its claim.

              That set off a contentious legal battle that still resonates in U.S. manufacturing. The FTC eventually dropped its action against New Balance’s use of the label on shoes from its U.S. factories while simultaneously reiterating the agency’s “all or virtually all” standard. Critics say that has sown confusion.

              “We look at the New Balance shoe case as clear proof that the federal law is not being enforced,” says Richard Holober, executive director of the Consumer Federation of California. California has a state standard that requires products must be 100% U.S.-made in order to qualify for the label.

              Mr. Holober says his group has fought bills to set a percentage, such as 70% or 75%, for calling something American made as well as “conformity bills,” which would make California’s rule harmonize with the federal standard. “We fought that on the belief that the federal law is not enforced and we can do better,” he says.

      4. @T_ump Where in my post say anything about Trump? IF*I* was potus.
        I guess I need to have a no pest strip for an emoji.

      5. T_ump- Exactly who do you think you are talking to here at the RS? You have almost as many down votes as you do comments. Obviously your propaganda, sorry opinion is not popular here. I’m sure you don’t care about that, but that seems to be how progressives roll. Biden, as much as he is dropping in the polls said that at least some were talking about him. He, and you don’t seem to be able to connect with reality.

  5. Dang. If we still lived in the Seattle area we would have made a day trip to plant a few flags as well. It’s just three hours down and a beautiful drive with three hours back. Thank you to those Patriots that had the gumption to do it for we the people. Besides, adding a little color to boring Beaverton is a plus. It’s actually boring beige.

  6. The Babylon Bee had a great new post on socialism.

    “Nike Releases Bernie Sanders Signature Shoe That Helps You Survive Under Socialism”

    Since we can’t posy pictures or graphics here, yo need to check out the Babylong Bee twitter feed, which I still cannot believe hasn’t been shut down by Twitter Jack.

      1. Thank you for the link. Nike Sanders Air Marx, Aerodynamic to chase zoo animals to eat, Edible-can be made into soup. Too funny.

        On the linked page also- Antifa shatters Mirror in attempt to Punch a Nazi.

        I was just reading some tweets indicating that Antifa is in DC for the Freedom of Speech rally, and are already getting a little dicey. I hope they don’t go through with their threat to throw acid while trying to blind as many people as possible.

      1. Well, I won’t disagree with that.

        It’s how conservatism seems these days, in the face of the behemoth juggernaut that is collectivism/progressivism, now coming from both Socialist left and the Trumpian right.

        1. These days conservatism seems perfectly fine to me. Except when made a mockery by those like Justin Amash.

    1. Are you equating this with Amash? Yes, yes, I know you are. You call what he’s doing “a rejection of tyranny”? And you wonder why you aren’t taken seriously?

      Lots of questions there but please don’t lead us down into some cosmic rabbit hole. Just for once.

    2. I will give you an up vote for the Information,but I do not believe Amash leaving the Republican Party has anything to do with the beginning of tyranny,if I am reading this right.Thanks AT

      1. It’s a small step in the rejection of this Trump/Prog two (but uni-)party bullshit.

        I also thoroughly appreciated his reasons for doing so, which I articulated in the other thread. I’m frankly shocked more people didn’t agree with him. I guess they’re still licking their red asses over the fact that he supported impeachment, and can’t get past that.

        1. No one had a problem with the paragraph you quoted. You just didn’t mention the fact that he also is getting behind impeaching a president based on the Mueller report which found zero crimes. No Russian collusion.

          1. I find that fact irrelevant.

            For the record, I support his impeachment too. I think it would be really bad for the nation if they did, which is why I don’t think it should happen. But should he be impeached for that whole NEA nonsense? Abso-friggin-lutely.

            If Barack had done it, we’d be demanding his head on a pike. We should hold Neo-Barack to the same standard.

      1. Doc- I’m not so sure that Nike/Kapernick are going to win this round. I’ll check out that site. Many more will be coming out with alternatives no doubt.

          1. Doc- Yeah, Dick’s were real Dicks. They deserved exactly what they got. But still, even though their shareholders lost big time, they remained on the SJW page. For them it was all about “mah principles,” even though many of their employees were likely standing in the unemployment lines. If you like your principles you can keep your principles. 🙂

            I may be wrong but Nike standing by their “spokesperson” Kapernick, who still remains unemployed in his profession, and who almost single handidly destroyed the NFL with his crap, and who is still very highly disliked by so many, because he politicized a past time where so many went to get away from politics, may just make Nike the new Dick’s.

            So what is Nike planning to do with that entire new line of sneakers? Will they just throw them in the garbage while so many across the globe can’t even afford a pair of shoes? See how that works? 🙂

            1. Unemployed? I thought that Krappersack was a professional, wokescold, rabble rouser?

              1. Ha, by my standards I don’t consider that to be employed. Even the majority of the trust fund white dudes of Antifa would starve if they had to live off their activism alone. Is Nike paying him even the lower wages for a not very good football player? Maybe they are. If Nike does go the way of Dick’s, they won’t be able to afford him for very long.

  7. I just read that someone had a pair of the Nike Betsy Ross sneakers up for bid on Ebay. They went to the highest bidder who is paying $15,200. for the shoes. The seller said that he bought them from a woman who bought them, but just wanted to sell them after all the flak over them.

He, and you don’t seem to be able to connect with reality.

        1. @Scope Weren’t you just telling me I should check my so called “arbiter position at the door and let others have their say”? Yet you posted this?

          I’m confused…..

          1. @Ryan T_oll is one our new moral arbiters. He completely missed the satire of John’s post and went on a pedantic rant. He (?) rarely adds anything to a discussion, only criticizes what he sees wrong with various posts.

      2. You do realize that sometimes folks are just venting? It’s not always to be taken seriously? Maybe, just maybe, if the government were to go after Nike, in some alternative universe that you and a few others live in, that this same commenter, when the rubber met the road, would object to that. Ever heard of just “Talking s#%t”? I certainly didn’t take the comment seriously, maybe you shouldn’t either.

        1. I try to take people at their word. But even if he is just venting, what’s the harm of setting out how tariffs potentially would potentially hurt us all in this situation. After all, Conservatives have long been philosophically opposed to tariffs. (Well . . . maybe not Populist Conservatives, but that’s an oxymoron anyway.)

          1. I’m guessing it was BS. Conservatives are allowed to have a sense of humor, enjoy sarcasm or just plain venting.

            1. I don’t know about that . . . I’ve seen some pretty funny things here that pass by unnoticed.

              1. You mean, people didn’t laugh? Maybe it just wasn’t funny, thus it went unnoticed….

            2. ryan- Perhaps you need to check your arbiter position at the door, and allow others to have their say. You said yesterday that you love “sparring” with the posters that hate Trump, but others have had experiences with these people, and their own opinions. Maybe check your own opinion at the door, and allow others to have theirs. Fair?

              1. No, that’s not what I said. I said I like to spar with AT sometimes. Didn’t mention other posters and damn sure didn’t say anything about folks who hate Trump. In fact, I never mentioned Trump or anyone else. People can say whatever they want about Trump. It’s when the consistency of their positions change solely based on if Trump did it or said it that I ever speak up on it.

                Maybe get your facts straight. Fair?

            1. You edited out the “boring” part? I liked the alliteration.

              Please don’t be suffer under the notion that you are required to read my posts.

              1. Boring is redundant. It’s hard to ignore your lengthy remarks when you insert them in other comments. You’re impressed with yourself and confidence is a good thing. Arrogance is another. You wear your self- worth on your sleeve.

                1. And redundant is boring. So how many times are you going to tell me you don’t like me or my posts?

                2. Does it matter? If you continue to post and I don’t agree, I’ll do what one does on a comment wall: comment.

        2. ryan- Maybe I’m misunderstanding you here, but-

          “if the government were to go after Nike, in some alternative universe that you and a few others live in”

          What does that even mean ryan? Please explain.

          1. “Maybe, just maybe, if the government were to go after Nike, in some alternative universe that you and a few others live in, that this same commenter, when the rubber met the road, would object to that. ”

            That is the full context of what I said.

            Basically I’m saying that John Henry probably wouldn’t actually be for tarriffs on Nike if it happened in reality. Just saying he’s venting. We’ve all done it. Hope that cleared it up.

      3. @T_oll You’d better go see an orthopedist about that broken funny bone so that you can recognize satire when it hits you on the head with a rubber chicken.

      4. @T_ump Where in my post say anything about Trump? IF*I* was potus.
        I guess I need to have a no pest strip for an emoji.

            1. Ain’t it? My least favorite drug. At least with street drugs you get a party for a little while before the misery sets in. TDS starts and ends with negative effects.

        1. Okay. If you were Potus, such tariffs would be an disaster. We’d have no shoes.

          Better?

      5. You prefer New Balance, but then you rag on them for making smart business decisions and giving consumers, like me, the option of buying the more up-scale shoes made in the US (yes, just 75% made in the US) while keeping models competitively priced with Nike, etc. that are 100% made in communist China.

              1. People sometimes claim

                That is what you wrote. You go on to say the claim is not accurate, and for most of their shoes, it is not accurate.

                I didn’t dispute fact. I disputed your negative spin and your perverse joy in irritating others while making unsubstantiated and derogatory accusations you later back off on or reframe to be less absolute, just. For example, you went from “people claim” to “people mistakenly believe.”

                1. And that is what people sometimes claim. Correcting their misperception is a far cry from calling them liars, as you falsely accused me of doing. There is your “negative spin” right there.

                  And I haven’t backed off anything. I tried it put it in different words you might better understand, but obviously understanding is not your goal here.

  16. Dang. If we still lived in the Seattle area we would have made a day trip to plant a few flags as well. It’s just three hours down and a beautiful drive with three hours back. Thank you to those Patriots that had the gumption to do it for we the people. Besides, adding a little color to boring Beaverton is a plus. It’s actually boring beige.

    1. Back in the day they were called sneakers, no? Do only tennis players wear that kind of shoe? I’m not sure who or why they all of a sudden started being called “tennis shoes.” Do you know?

      1. I want to say sneakers were the Low Quarter style shoe and the tennis shoes were the 3-4 inch higher from the floor to the top of shoe.I am only guessing. Thanks SCOPE.

      2. @scope-formerly-pinecone I don’t think it’s “all of a sudden.” I have used the terms “sneakers” and “tennis shoes” interchangeably all my life – and I never play tennis.

      3. @scope-formerly-pinecone I read an article about language a while back and whether you say “sneakers” or “tennis shoes” is a regional thing.

        1. Doc- I think you may be right that it is a regional thing. I also wondered if it might be an age thing also. Where I grew up a century ago 🙂 I never heard them called tennis shoes.

          1. @scope-formerly-pinecone I vaguely recall both from my youth, but the where and when are buried in the sands of time. I think that it was part of a questionnaire where they tell you where you grew up by how you answer. I started taking a memory supplement, if I can remember the name of it after a month, I’ll continue taking it.

            1. Doc- ” I started taking a memory supplement, if I can remember the name of it after a month, I’ll continue taking it.”

              😆

              You crack me up Doc. I read your comment about distracted drivers to my hub the other day and he laughed and thought it was great.

                1. It also helps me keep my mind off of my horribly unbearable first world problems.

                2. You can always disabuse yourself from those horrible first world problems by making a trip to San Fran. Just remember to pack your hip waders. 🙂

      1. Well, I won’t disagree with that.

        It’s how conservatism seems these days, in the face of the behemoth juggernaut that is collectivism/progressivism, now coming from both Socialist left and the Trumpian right.

        1. These days conservatism seems perfectly fine to me. Except when made a mockery by those like Justin Amash.

          1. Then I suggest you step back and take an objective look at it.

            What’s left of it, that is.

    1. Are you equating this with Amash? Yes, yes, I know you are. You call what he’s doing “a rejection of tyranny”? And you wonder why you aren’t taken seriously?

      Lots of questions there but please don’t lead us down into some cosmic rabbit hole. Just for once.

          1. Because you have to take off the chains before you can walk away from them?

            (Wasn’t that complicated.)

            1. It’s kinda complicated when it has nothing to do with what I said.

              I’m on the highway, you change lanes and I’m supposed to follow with no heads up? Ugh, women drivers in the comment thread too? What gives…… 😮

              1. Leaving the two-party system and calling on America to do better than that isn’t a rejection of tyranny?

                You get that we have zero say in our federal government anymore, right?

    2. I will give you an up vote for the Information,but I do not believe Amash leaving the Republican Party has anything to do with the beginning of tyranny,if I am reading this right.Thanks AT

      1. It’s a small step in the rejection of this Trump/Prog two (but uni-)party bullshit.

        I also thoroughly appreciated his reasons for doing so, which I articulated in the other thread. I’m frankly shocked more people didn’t agree with him. I guess they’re still licking their red asses over the fact that he supported impeachment, and can’t get past that.

        1. ….great points AT I believe you nailed it with the Impeachment comments.Catch you later

        2. No one had a problem with the paragraph you quoted. You just didn’t mention the fact that he also is getting behind impeaching a president based on the Mueller report which found zero crimes. No Russian collusion.

          1. I find that fact irrelevant.

            For the record, I support his impeachment too. I think it would be really bad for the nation if they did, which is why I don’t think it should happen. But should he be impeached for that whole NEA nonsense? Abso-friggin-lutely.

            If Barack had done it, we’d be demanding his head on a pike. We should hold Neo-Barack to the same standard.

            1. NEA?

              He did nothing to get impeached over. I’m not emotionally invested in it like you and the TDSer’s are so you might not understand where fact, logic based individuals are coming from.

              1. NEA?

                He did nothing to get impeached over.

                Disagree. Invoking an “emergency” to get around a Congress that explicitly told him no?

                If Barack did it, we’d be building the gallows.

  18. Yeah, it would have been AWESOME to plant the Betsy Ross flags, but I guess the shipments from China need a little more time.

    Haha Colin, you and Nike have just made the Betsy Ross flag the new “hot” item. Congratulations!

    1. I agree, Nike just made the Betsy Ross flag more popular than ever. That’s capitalism baby. There will be many companies that will start producing clothing items with the Betsy Ross flag on them. It’s already started. 🙂

  19. It totally disgusts me that a very successful company would spit on the flag and the country. The very country they owe every ounce of their success to. I spit in the faces of Nike executives.

    1. It’s Oregon for crying out loud. A bunch of liberal tree huggers and not a surprise.

      1. @gigi0f4grands Not a surprise, but I hope their sales plummet and they regret letting that nutball be the face of the company and tell them what to do.

        1. They’ll gain sales in the short term because every SJW in America will go buy a Nike product to show how woke they are. Normally happens that way. In fact, their stocks are up 2%. Check in a few months after the weak minds have moved on and I’m betting things will have changed. I know quite a few customers they’ve lost for life.

          1. @ryan-o

            …customers they’ve lost for life.

            I hope that holds and they don’t forget as well.

          2. @ryan-o No, the sheeple will continue to buy whatever Michael Jordan and Krappersack tell them to.

            1. True, but there are many folks who find what Nike did detestable. I do and so do many folks I know. But, I quit buying Nikes a while back based solely on their overrated quality.

      1. nc checks and balances I pray it’s a return to Patriotism for the “fallen away”.
