The Social Justice Warriors who run Nike, for example, pompously inform us that they are fighting “against discrimination in communities worldwide.” Not only that but they are “work[ing] every day to erase the stain of racism and the damage of injustice.”

Really, Nike? Then why do you have your shoes made by an oppressive, morally bankrupt regime? China is the ugly poster child, the living exemplar, for all of the evils that you are so quick to condemn America for.

Right now, at this very moment, the Chinese Communists are eliminating the Uyghurs, a Turkish-speaking people who live in China’s Far West, from the face of the earth.

ItNike contracts with a Qingdao company, for example, that as of January of this year had 600 Uyghurs cobbling together its shoes.

Yes, the same company that funds organizations asking for reparations for a practice that ended in the US in 1865 has actually used slave labor in China to make its products — and its profits — for many years. turns out that some of these Uyghurs have been slaving away making basketball shoes with the famous swoosh on them.


Nike and the rest of the social justice warriors are hypocrites who do not actually care about anyone else. If they did, they would stand up to the murderous Chinese regime.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

One of my sisters has always given Zach a new pair of shoes for Christmas.... I told her years ago, not to buy him NIke shoes. I think these type of companies should be exposed and boycotted out of business. I hate to see their logo on mlb uniforms. If the Pittsburgh pirates cared about social issues they would demand that MLB cancel the billion dollar deal with NIke and get their uniforms elsewhere...

Consensus is anyplace without Martin trumps Martin, even with an ignore button.

By paying off (Some) Black Lives Matter, they gain atonement.


Joe Biden has spent his entire life trying to succeed in presidential politics,and now he has. Too bad he’s not there to enjoy it.
