Just Don’t – Nike Enlists Kaepernick for Their “Just Do It” Ad Campaign
Nike has chosen Colin Kaepernick for their “Just do it” ad campaign, and through that we learn that they have been paying him all along. We simply say, “just don’t.” Their CEO called him “inspirational.” He is an ungrateful, disrepectful fool. I personally will never buy another pair of Nike shoes as long as I live.

There will be significant backlash to their decision. Many people have already burned their Nike Gear in disgust, according to USA Today. Kaepernick has no concept of true “sacrifice.”
The following was written by Gold Star Dad Garland Mason:
My wife and I will NEVER purchase another NIKE product again… Nike has endorsed Colin Kaepernick’s disrespect of the American flag.. Nike now features him in a “Just Do It” campaign, along with a quote that reads: “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”
Nike’s vice president of brand for North America ‘Gino Fisanotti’ added… “We believe Colin is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward.”
As parents of a fallen soldier ‘Mr Fisanotti’ I can assure you , our son, and many others like him, also sacrificed everything… our son sacrificed his yesterdays, todays, and tomorrows for the flag that Kaepernick chooses to disrespect. Our son sacrificed his life so that others may know freedom. Unlike Colin Kaepernick, our son was not being paid millions of dollars a year when he made his sacrifice for our great nation.
Sixteen days before being killed in action, our son was asked by another paratrooper how he felt about being in Iraq, he replied…
“This is a time in our life that we’re making history, this is our moment. We all chose to come into the military, knowing that we could be sent over here, but we chose to do it anyway… because we choose to believe the patch (the American flag) we wear on our right shoulder stands for something that’s greater than who we are, or where we come from… we’re the fabric that holds the flag together.” -CPL Chris Mason 12 Nov 2006″
