Nike, built by geniuses, now run by idiots!

To the editor:

The Nike company, for some strange reason, has gone out of its way to set itself on a course bound for destruction. Why any sensible company would tie itself to an unpatriotic individual who has disrespected our flag, our anthem, and our heritage, is a mystery that can only be explained by total idiocy.

The hiring of Colin Kaepernick to become the face of this once revered company is truly absolute lunacy and probably explains the reason why a number of Nike executives have chosen to leave the company recently.

Let's be clear: All Americans have the right to stand for anything they believe in. This privilege has been fought for by our greatest Americans and is symbolized the waving of our flag and the playing of our cherished anthem.

Sure, we even have the right to disrespect our nation. However, any company or group that sides with this disgraceful behavior is declaring war on all grateful Americans and will be judged as dopey and un-American.

The Nike Company is not larger then the American Flag, our national anthem, or those troops wounded and killed to preserve our democracy. The Nike Company is short on respect, appreciation and brains and will pay a very severe price.

Americans should immediately discontinue the purchasing of Nike goods and patronize only those companies which understand that no one has the right to disrespect our precious legacy.

No one.

And under no circumstances!.
