Nike Signs Up NFL’s Colin Kaepernick, Who Refused to Stand for the National Anthem, to Represent the Company In Celebration of Its ‘Just Do It’ Ad Campaign
Tucker Carlson slammed Nike for its announcement on Monday that Colin Kaepernick is the new face of the company’s “Just Do It” campaign.
Kaepernick, a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who remains a free agent, started the trend of NFL players refusing to stand for the anthem in 2016 to protest racial inequality and police brutality.

There has been a huge backlash to Nike’s decision to go into business with the former quarterback-turned-social-justice-activist, with many social media users posting videos and photos of them destroying their Nike-branded apparel.
On “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday, Tucker Carlson called out the Nike executives who are profiting from Kaepernick and “his attacks on the United States.
“This is an attack on the country,” Carlson stated, pointing out that Kaepernick is not protesting any specific lawmaker or policy.
“Sitting during the national anthem is a way of making a broad-based, generalized — and therefore impossible to rebut — attack against the country that made him and Nike rich,” Carlson said.
Texas: Several Doctors Who Attended the Kavanaugh Hearing Saw Protesters Paid Off in Cash
su_note note_color=”#efe1a7″ text_color=”#00000″ radius=”5”]Several doctors from Texas attended the hearing today and told interviewer Adam Schindler that they witnessed organizers with a bag of cash paying the protesters. Dr. Tom Schleuter said the organizers instructed the actors to go inside and yell and scream and even get arrested. He said it was clear the protesters were ill-informed and just there for the money. Another doctor said some of the female protesters were disappointed that the were not arrested. [/su_note]
Three doctors said they personally witnessed protesters being paid off before the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, which was disrupted by unruly demonstrators.
A total of 70 people were arrested during the hearing after many of them began screeching incoherently in an effort to derail the event.
Activist Adam Schindler interviewed three doctors from Texas who suggested that the entire protest was far from organic.
“One thing was there were people who had come along… who had a bag of money, and people would hand them a piece of paper, and then they would give them money. So we know money was exchanged for some of the people to be here, just to protest,” said Dr. Tom Schlueter.
“The most telling thing was listening to them giving names and addresses, so when they were arrested, they were keeping a record and celebrating who got arrested, without any regard for any open discussion or even the possibility of being convinced of anything, it was just for the purpose of disruption and to have some kind of disruption of the process,” said Dr. Morton Purvis.
Schindler tweeted this image which he claims shows one of the protesters being paid.

Senator Tom Tillis also said yesterday that Democrats’ sabotage of the hearing was planned in advance and had nothing to do with the claim that they were given 42,000 documents too late.
Democrat Senators Conduct Disruption Campaign at Confirmation Hearing for Supreme Court Nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh
Summary by JW Williams
Judge Napolitano says it was obvious that Democrats lack the votes needed to block Kavanaugh’s nomination. He summarized their strategy as: “If you can’t interfere with a nomination, let’s interfere with the process.”
Germany: 8,000 Protested Against Mass Immigration After German Citizen Was Stabbed to Death by Migrants. The Next Day, 50,000 People Attended a Free Concert Supporting Mass Immigration.
Eighteen people were injured in rival demonstrations capping off a week marked by xenophobic protests in the eastern city of Chemnitz, prompting Germany’s foreign minister to urge Germans to “get off our sofas” and speak up against racism.
Chemnitz has been in the spotlight after violent far-right protests erupted over the fatal stabbing of a 35-year-old man, allegedly by a Syrian and an Iraqi last Sunday.
On Saturday, 8,000 people answered a joint call by far-right party AfD and Islamophobic PEGIDA street movement to descend once again on the streets of the former communist city which was in the erstwhile East Germany.
The mobilization vastly outnumbered a contingent of 3,000 counter protesters, including Green party and Social Democratic Party MPs, who had also converged to take a stand against racism.
