AZ Gov Withdraws Financial Incentives From Nike After Kaepernick Says Flag Shoes Are Racist

Published

on

News broke earlier that Nike was recalling a line of iconic shoes meant to celebrate the Fourth of July because Colin Kaepernick took offense to the “Betsy Ross” flag with 13 stars for the 13 colonies emblazoned on the shoes. He said it hearkens back to slavery in early America. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey didn’t buy that load of horse manure and announced today that he’s withdrawing all financial incentive dollars to have Nike open a manufacturing plant in the state near Goodyear where I used to live. Good for him – nice to see a governor with some moral clarity and conviction, not to mention patriotism.

Ducey unloaded on Nike in a series of tweets stating that he was disappointed by the company’s “terrible decision.” The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that Nike pulled its Air Max 1 USA, which featured a “Betsy Ross” flag after the former NFL star reached out to the firm and said the 13-star flag created during the American Revolution was offensive and carried slavery connotations. So, naturally… Nike showed they support Kaepernick and Black Lives Matter more than America and her founding. That’s just who they are these days.

“Nike has chosen not to release the Air Max 1 Quick Strike Fourth of July as it featured an old version of the American flag,” the company said in a statement to FOX Business. Nike did not directly address Ducey’s tweets. Nothing like hating on American history on the Fourth of July.

“Today was supposed to be a good day in Arizona, with the announcement of a major @Nike investment in Goodyear, AZ,” Ducey started out with. “Words cannot express my disappointment at this terrible decision. I am embarrassed for Nike. Nike is an iconic American brand and American company. This country, our system of government and free enterprise have allowed them to prosper and flourish,” the Arizona governor continued.

“Instead of celebrating American history the week of our nation’s independence, Nike has apparently decided that Betsy Ross is unworthy, and has bowed to the current onslaught of political correctness and historical revisionism,” Ducey tweeted. “It is a shameful retreat for the company. American businesses should be proud of our country’s history, not abandoning it.”

From Fox Business:

“Ducey said he ordered the Arizona Commerce Authority to withdraw “all financial incentive dollars” the state was going to provide for Nike to build a manufacturing plant.

“Arizona’s economy is doing just fine without Nike. We don’t need to suck up to companies that consciously denigrate our nation’s history,” the governor added. “And finally, it shouldn’t take a controversy over a shoe for our kids to know who Betsy Ross is. A founding mother. Her story should be taught in all American schools. In the meantime, it’s worth googling her.”

“The Goodyear City Council on Monday signed off on an agreement to allow Nike to build a multimillion-dollar facility in the state. The plant would add more than 500 full-time jobs in Goodyear, with employees reportedly earning an average yearly salary of $48,514, including overtime and bonuses.

“We are delighted to welcome Nike to Goodyear,” Councilwoman Wally Campbell said, according to AZ Central. “We look forward to a long-lasting relationship.”’

Well, that relationship didn’t last long and an America-hating, cop-despising, kneeling Colin Kaepernick is to blame for every bit of it. I hope Nike likes the bed they’ve made. They can wallow in it… they can even kneel on it for all I care. Nike had reportedly planned on investing $185 million to open a manufacturing facility in Goodyear. The Goodyear City Council, on Monday, “approved a package of incentives that would reimburse the company about $1 million in planning fees and about $4,000 per full-time employee Nike hires, according to city records.”

The design that was to go on those shoes was borne from the Revolutionary War in America. Nixing it is the epitome of anti-Americanism. The shoes would have sold for $140 a pop. Not all were successfully recalled – the ones that got out are going for $950 for collectors.

I’m with Governor Ducey on this… good freaking riddance to Nike. If you lay down with radicals and racists and pitch hatred towards America and what we stand for, you deserve to go out of business. And you sure aren’t wanted in Arizona.

NYC To Allow Public School Students To Change Their Gender & Name Without Documentation

Published

on

New York City is going further and further down the sewer hole these days. Public school students can now change their gender status on school records without any legal documentation and play for the sports teams of their preference, the Department of Education has announced. They have to have permission from their parents to do so but it is usually the parents who encourage this confusion and twisted sickness to begin with. In New York City it no longer matters what your birth certificate says.

“Schools are safe havens for students to develop their passions and discover their true identities, and these new guidelines celebrate and affirm all students,” said Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza in a statement. “This Pride Month, I’m thrilled to send a clear message to our students — we celebrate you, we respect you, and we support you.” Pushing perversion in public schools has become mainstream – parents are forewarned.

From The New York Post:

“After submitting a newly created “name and gender change request form,” all school-related documents and data — including report cards, diplomas, and enrollment numbers — will reflect the requested designations.

“With this updated policy, which allows students to change their name and gender on school records without legal documentation, we are signaling our support for all students regardless of gender identity,” City Council Speaker Corey Johnson said in a statement celebrating the changes.

“Kids and their families will also be able to self-report names and genders when enrolling in a DOE school.

“The regulations will permanently modify how schools calculate their demographics. Instead of tabulating gender numbers through birth certificates, administrators will now rely on self-reported information.

“The rule is part of a larger set of new DOE initiatives aimed at minimizing gender-specific practices inside city classrooms.

“Schools will now be barred from tailoring any uniforms — including graduation gowns — to gender.

“School dress codes must be … free of gender stereotypes and must be written, enforced, and applied equally to all students regardless of gender,” the DOE said.

“The new dress code rules will help ease “the trauma that can be unintentionally inflicted on girls, trans, and gender-nonconforming youth, particularly youth of color, by the uneven application and enforcement of dress codes,” Councilman Mark Treyger said in a statement.

“Dividing sex-ed classes by gender has now also been officially prohibited in city schools, according to the DOE.

“These new guidelines additionally specify that puberty education classes must be inclusive and affirming to all genders, gender identities, and sexual orientations, and use gender-inclusive language throughout,” the department said.

“The DOE added that LGBTQ-related subject matters will become mandatory for all city kids so that “multiple forms of diversity, including gender and sexual orientation, are recognized, understood, and regarded as indispensable sources of knowledge for rigorous teaching and learning,” the DOE said.

“New York City is proud to be leading on policies that allow New Yorkers across the gender spectrum to be themselves in every single area of their lives, especially our schools,” First Lady Chirlane McCray said in a statement.”

This means that children in public schools in NYC will be forced to learn about gay sex and all that it entails. Sex ed will also ramp up even more much to the chagrin of most parents. This is the deliberate destruction of morality and the family unit – the communists must be delighted with this development.

Doesn’t the national Department of Education have sway over the state chapters? This is sheer insanity and should not be allowed. This is not ‘inclusive’ – it’s deranged.

TOO LATE: Starbucks Apologizes For Barista Kicking Cops Out Of AZ Coffee Shop

Published

...

* By

I think we all can say its a little too late now for an apology. Starbucks is overrated and overpriced for crappy coffee.

If you are uncomfortable around police officers..are you wanted? I for one feel very comfortable when I see the police around. Whiny Starbucks Baristas need to grow up and show some respect.

Apologies mean nothing.

Via The Daily Wire:

A corporate spokesperson for Starbucks issued a full apology Sunday after news of an incident in one of the coffee chain’s Arizona outlets went viral.

On Saturday, The Daily Wire’s Ashe Schow reported that a barista at a Starbucks in Tempe, Arizona, asked several police officers, who get coffee at the shop regularly, to move out of a customer’s line of sight or leave the premises, claiming that the mere presence of several law enforcement officials made the customer “not feel safe.”

On Twitter, the Tempe Officers Association — a police union — wrote about the incident on Friday and included a mock image of the Starbucks logo that showed a hand pouring out a cup of coffee with the words “Dump Starbucks” circling the image.

“Don’t appreciate @Starbucks asking our #Tempe cops to leave your establishment on the #4thofjuly2019. Several of those cops are #veterans who fought for this country! #ZeroRespect,” the union wrote.

A second statement, posted to the Tempe Officers Association’s Facebook page, fleshed out the incident, adding that, “[t]he barista said that a customer ‘did not feel safe’ because of the police presence. The barista asked the officers to move out of the customer’s line of sight or to leave.”

“Disappointed,” the union added, “the officers did in fact leave.”

The Tempe Police Department later said, in a statement from their public relations department, that they’d reached out to Starbucks’s corporate office and that Starbucks was aware of the incident. On Sunday, according to NPR, a representative from the Tempe Police Department met with members of Starbucks’ leadership team and the company issued an official apology.

Dear Chief Moir and the entire Tempe Police Department,

Thank you, Chief Moir, for the conversation today. On behalf of Starbucks, I want to sincerely apologize to you all for the experience that six of your officers had in our store on July 4.

When those officers entered the store and a customer raised a concern over their presence, they should have been welcomed and treated with dignity and the utmost respect by our partners (employees). Instead, they were made to feel unwelcome and disrespected, which is completely unacceptable.

At Starbucks, we have deep appreciation for your department and the officers who serve the Tempe community. Our partners rely on your service and welcome your presence, which keeps our stores and the community a safe and welcoming place. Continue Reading
