Nike’s slave labor hypocrisy.

Yes…, Nike and their social justice, mouthpiece, tool, Colin Kaepernick, need to answer for their slave labor hypocrisy.

anike 7

Steven W. Mosher for The New York Post writes, “Nike should quit lecturing on social justice — and atone for using slave labor in China.”

anike 2

“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 ‘working every day to erase the stain of racism and the damage of injustice.’”

Words, words, words.

Again, we see another shining example of liberal hypocrisy, and their “do as I say, not as I do” manifesto.

Remember…, in the liberal fascist world, it’s more important to say the right things than to do the right things.

Just think about it.

Nike has the nerve to “pompously” lecture to the rest of us about social justice and America’s evil slavery past, while they utilize slave labor to produce their products.

“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.”

anike 6

America is a convenient “punching bag” for all of these “holier than thou’ types.

And, Nike can get away with this because the liberal, propagandist, mainstream media, is complicit with their behavior and it is not even reported on.

anike 13

Again…, propaganda by omission.

Serious, actual truth seeking, journalists, should be all over a story like this, but instead we find these “journalists” turning their backs on this hypocrisy.

And it’s not just a political, or a social hypocrisy…, it’s an evil genocidal type of hypocritical allowance.

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

“They’ve locked up over a million Uyghur men in concentration camps, aborted and sterilized hundreds of thousands of the women, and are busy selling the young — in batches of 100, no less — to Chinese factory owners as slave labor.”

anike 14

“Secret drone footage has revealed some of the brutality of this campaign. It shows hundreds of Uyghur men, handcuffed, blindfolded and heads shaved, being herded onto a train bound for a secret camp.”

“But it’s even worse for Nike, the ‘wokest’ of ‘woke’ companies.”

It’s true…, just ask ‘em.

“It turns out that some of these Uyghurs have been slaving away making basketball shoes with the famous swoosh on them.”

“An Australian Strategic Policy Institute report published this March, ‘Uyghurs for sale,’ found Uyghur slave labor working in factories supplying 83 well-known global brands in the technology, clothing, shoe and automotive sectors, including Apple, GM, Gap — and Nike.”

“Nike 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.”

Tell me again WHO should be cancelled?!

anike 15

“Like Nike, the pro-sports officials, owners and athletes of the NFL and the NBA who are making big money off the China market have also turned a blind eye to the brutal oppression of minorities there, all the while making ‘woke’ noises about how racist America is.”

What we really have here is a bunch of guilty, rich (but stupid) people, who are being manipulated and used by some very smart Marxists.

anike 12

“The poster child for all of this anti-American demagoguery is NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who in 2018 signed a multi-million-dollar contract to become a megaphone for Nike products.”

anike 5

“I wonder if the same man who kneels to protest America’s slave-owning past might one day stand for the freedom of slaves in China. It would only be fitting. It was Uyghur slaves, after all, who might have stitched his Kaepernick brand of Air Force 1 shoes together.”

Ouch.

anike 9

anike 8

“While we wait for that moment of self-awareness to strike the young [and bogus] progressive [Kaepernick], we at least have the redoubtable Josh Hawley. The Missouri senator this week tweeted Nike and the NBA to ask them to certify that their products are ‘Slave Free.’”

anike 3

“Nike has pledged to donate ‘$100 million over the next 10 years to organizations dedicated to ensuring racial equality, social justice and greater access to education.’”

Ha!

Ya, they couldn’t run to the bank fast enough to through millions of dollars at The Black Lives Matter organization.

This, of course, is money they have as a result of utilizing slave labor in the first place.

Funny how that works, isn’t it?

“But I have a better idea, Nike. Why don’t you take the blood money you have earned from employing slave labor in China and open a factory in the US? Choose a site in the inner city, employ minorities, and provide jobs and a way out of poverty.”

“That would go a lot further toward ensuring racial equality and social justice, not to mention hope for the future of America, than anything else you could do.”

Now there’s an excellent idea, Mr. Mosher!

Ya…, why wouldn’t you do that, Nike?

I know!

The answer begins with an “M,” ends with a “Y,” and has “O-N-E” in the middle.

That’s right!

Our old friend “money” is the answer again, just like it always is, everything else, and I mean everything else, be damned.

Liberals like everything to be free…, except thought and speech!  

The First Amendment to The Constitution guarantees our freedom of speech.  If our freedom of speech is guaranteed, then by default our freedom of thought and beliefs are also protected, since our speech is just a verbalization of our thoughts.

abacklash 15

We may not like or agree with other people, but we must allow them to exist and say what they want, and vice versa.

For example…, The KKK and The Nazi Party are generally disliked, but they must be allowed to exist. The same could be said about Pro-life supporters versus Pro-Abortion supporters, depending on your stance here.

In America, we are allowed to dislike or hate whoever we want and for whatever reason(s).

Just as we are allowed to like or approve of whoever we want for whatever reason(s), or for no reason at all.

Racism is the latest inexcusable social infraction du jour…, but there are many forms of discrimination and -isms we all face every day regarding:

Ethnic culture.

Religion.

Geographic origins.

Current Geographic situation.

Wealth.

Politics.

Gender.

Sexual preferences.

And Education…, just to name a few.

Expressing unacceptable beliefs, in any of these areas, as determined by the liberal speech and thought police, can be detrimental to your livelihood, and social freedoms, like losing your job, being boycotted, and being harassed and even assaulted in public.

abacklash 7

abacklash 4

And many of these “belief infractions” are not even close to radical in nature.

Take the latest liberal hissy fit, for instance, regarding professional football player, Drew Brees, of the New Orleans Saints.

abacklash 6

According to Ryan Gaydos of Fox News, “Drew Brees created an uproar Wednesday when he defended his stance against players kneeling during the national anthem…”

“While Brees was getting hammered from the likes of LeBron James, Aaron Rodgers, former wide receiver Joe Horn told ‘The Athletic’ that people like the Los Angeles Lakers superstar should get to know Brees first before making any decision.”

‘“People should not be throwing Drew Brees under the bus, and they definitely need to pump the brakes on labeling him a racist,’ Horn said. ‘I know Drew Brees. Drew has done a lot to help black families and the black community in New Orleans. If Drew Brees didn’t love black families and low-income families he wouldn’t have helped the way he has over the years. People that are criticizing him like LeBron James and other celebrities don’t know him. They need to check his resume.”

I’m sorry, Joe, but don’t you know what you say is way more meaningful than what you actually do these days?

Where you been, man?

‘“I love my race. And I love New Orleans to death. But I know Drew Brees. And Drew is a good person. And until you have walked beside him and gotten to know him, his wife and family, you definitely have to give him a pass on this one and allow Drew a chance to think about what he said and come back and make this right. And I know he will.’”

“I love my race?”

I’m sorry, again, but I can’t even relate to what that means.

Good for you though, I guess.

And you think Drew will “think about what he said and come back and make this right?”

Make what right?

Even the people defending Drew Brees are misguided, confused and displaying their own level of racism.

abacklash 9

“He was reacting to [LeBron] James’ comments on Twitter which read, ‘WOW MAN!! Is it still surprising at this point. Sure isn’t! You literally still don’t understand why Kap [Colin Kaepernick] was kneeling on one knee?? Has absolute nothing to do with the disrespect of and our soldiers (men and women) who keep our land free. My father-in-law was one of those.’”

abacklash 10

Here’s an idea SheBron…, why don’t you quit crying, put your big boy pants on and realize everyone has a right to their own beliefs and their own opinions. We don’t need you to tell us what we need to understand either.

abacklash 19

Personally, I don’t believe someone who plays a game for a living should be paid like they won the lottery every year…, but hey, that’s just me.

“Marcus Davenport, who is currently Brees’ teammate, tweeted his defense of the quarterback.”

‘“Drew wasn’t talking about the current protest, the riots or really anything besides HIS feelings on kneeling during the National Anthem,’ Davenport wrote. ‘He even explained what they were, the basis and that he actually stands with us. Do we have to entirely agree with him, no.’”

You better watch it, Marcus…, because OH, YES HE DOES have to agree with EVERYTHING the left professes!

I’m sure we’ll be seeing Marcus issuing a clarification of his remarks very soon, if he hasn’t already done so.  That goes for Drew Brees as well.

abacklash 17

“Brees told Yahoo Finance that he would never agree with players protesting during the national anthem.”

‘“I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country. Let me just tell you what I see or what I feel when the national anthem is played and when I look at the flag of the United States,’ he said.”

‘“I envision my two grandfathers, who fought for this country during World War II, one in the Army and one in the Marine Corps. Both risking their lives to protect our country and to try to make our country and this world a better place. So, every time I stand with my hand over my heart looking at that flag and singing the national anthem, that’s what I think about,’ he said.”

‘“And in many cases, that brings me to tears, thinking about all that has been sacrificed. Not just those in the military, but for that matter, those throughout the civil rights movements of the ‘60s, and all that has been endured by so many people up until this point. And is everything right with our country right now? No, it is not. We still have a long way to go. But I think what you do by standing there and showing respect to the flag with your hand over your heart, is it shows unity. It shows that we are all in this together, we can all do better and that we are all part of the solution.’”

This Drew Brees just sounds like such a terribly insensitive racist, doesn’t he?

abacklash 13

These protesters can try and explain their protests anyway they want, but that doesn’t stop anyone from feeling how they feel about their protests, and that is their right.

You have the right to protest anyway you like, and I have the right to not like it.

You have the right to dislike anything I say, but you don’t have the right to silence me, nor I you.

That’s it.

Social media is getting pretty antisocial!

According to Subrat Patnaik and Shubham Kalia for Reuters, “Twitter hid a tweet from President Donald Trump on Friday, accusing him of breaking its rules by ‘glorifying violence’ in a message that said looters at protests in Minneapolis would be shot.”

That doesn’t sound like “glorifying violence…,” it sounds like a warning or a threat.

atweet 17

“Twitter’s decision to step in, at a time of racially charged civil unrest in cities across the United States, escalates a feud between [President] Trump and tech companies.”

“It came just hours after Trump signed an executive order threatening Silicon Valley social media firms with new regulations [guaranteeing] free speech.”

‘“…These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!’ [President] Trump’s tweet read.”

atweet 2

“[President] Trump’s message can now be seen only after clicking on a notice which says: ‘This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.’”

So nice of you to allow us to see what our President has to say!

Where the hell are we?!

We are still living in America, aren’t we?

atweet 13

This is beginning to sound like more and more like George Orwell’s book, “1984.”

atweet 8

It took a little longer than George thought, but it is happening.

“1984” is a dystopian novel by English novelist George Orwell.

A dystopia is a community or society that is undesirable or frightening. It is a state or society where there is great suffering or injustice.

The book was published in 1949, and centers on the consequences of government over-reach, totalitarianism, mass surveillance, and repressive regimentation of all persons and behaviors within society.

The story takes place in an imagined future, the year 1984, when much of the world has fallen victim to perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, a distortion of the historical record, and propaganda.  The “thought police” are employed there as well.

“1984” popularized the adjective “Orwellian,” which represents things such as official deception, secret surveillance, brazenly misleading terminology, and manipulation of recorded history by a totalitarian or authoritarian state.

atweet 16

Is all of this starting to sound familiar?

“Twitter said it had taken its action over the Trump tweet ‘in the interest of preventing others from being inspired to commit violent acts.’”

Oh…, of course…, it was in our best interests, for our own safety, for our own good.

That’s what the Nazis told the Jews as the forced them from their homes.

atweet 4

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and liberal political activist, Colin Kaepernick, recently tweeted about the Minneapolis riots, “The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance. We have the right to fight back!”

atweet 3

Now there’s a tweet that seems to be “glorifying violence.”

atweet 9

Where’s the notice that this tweet violated Twitter’s rules?

We all know Twitter is just fine with Kaepernick’s tweet, but all up in arms over President Trump’s tweet.

atweet 7

There are hundreds of millions of tweets every day.

This is targeted censorship.  I guarantee you that I could tweet the exact same thing President Trump did and there would be no warning or disclaimer attached to my tweet.

In fact, I can guarantee you there are tens of thousands of untruthful tweets and tweets promoting violence out there that will never be flagged.

The only tweets that will be flagged are those which, by flagging them, will advance the liberal narrative.

There’s no real concern about safety or truthfulness.

It’s ALL about advancing the liberal narrative.

atweet 15

On a side note…, Twitter is based in…, where else but…, in San Francisco, California!

Well, who’da thunk it?

atweet 12

Where else would the liberal word and thought police be headquartered?

WINNING!
