Veteran Owned Company Has Epic Response to Nike's Kaepernick Ad
It's still a few hours before opening kick off, and I'm already tired of hearing or seeing Nike's Kaepernick Ad. Judging from the news, I'm not alone (see More Bad News for Nike. Check out These Poll Numbers… and UFC Vet Tim Kennedy: All My Military Friends are DONE with Nike). Veteran-owned retailer Nine Line apparel was pissed too. So they're responding with an ad campaign of their own.
This is glorious:

The local company has designed a T-shirt in opposition to Nike advertising featuring former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
“Nike took a stand. This is ours,” said Army Capt. (ret.) Tyler Merritt, CEO of Nine Line Apparel. “They will never understand what it’s like to lose a friend overseas, carry him back home with an American flag draped over his casket, and hand that flag over to his wife and children.”
Just to be clear, Kaeper-dick and every other America-hating butt-dumpling are free to kneel as they please. Likewise, we're free to call them out for being obnoxious doucheburritos. Nobody here is trying to pass a law requiring knees to be unbent for the anthem. We're merely combatting free speech with more free speech.
Nike seems to think Colin Kaepernick is the epitome of self-sacrifice. "Football man who flips the bird to common decency is superhero extraordinaire. People who die securing the freedom to flip off decency, meh." Now, that may not be Nike's intent here, but hyping up a grandstanding turd-burglar like Kaepernick sure sends that message. In capital letters.
As for NFL Sunday, maketh your butts ready. This Kaepernick ad doesn't even scratch the surface. The unending virtue signaling over an unemployed quarterback is gonna leave your ears ringing.
