So much for stopping at Confederate monuments with the memory hole bullshit. The Trump campaign thanks these unhinged morons for securing 2020 for them.

Julián Castro, Beto O'Rourke back Nike, saying Betsy Ross flag is 'hurtful'
By Joseph A. Wulfsohn | Fox News

It was inevitable that the 2020 candidates would weigh in on the Betsy Ross flag-sneaker controversy.

Two Democratic hopefuls have expressed their support for Nike after the sportswear company pulled sneakers featuring the Betsy Ross-designed American flag ahead of the Fourth of July holiday. The company did so after former NFL quarterback and Nike endorser Colin Kaepernick raised concerns about the shoes.

Former HUD Secretary Julián Castro told CBS News on Wednesday that he was "glad to see" Nike remove the shoes from the shelves, comparing the "painful" symbol to the Confederate flag.

"There are a lot of things in our history that are still very painful," Castro explained. As an example, he cited "the Confederate flag that still flies in some places and is used as a symbol."

Former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke also approved of Nike's decision, noting that "white nationalist groups" have "appropriated" the Betsy Ross flag.

"I think its really important to take into account the impression that kind of symbol would have for many of our fellow Americans," he said, according to Jewish Insider senior political reporter Ben Jacobs.

Its simple. When November 2020 comes around, you can vote for one of several parties that do not host America. Or you can vote Democrat.

You know it is possible to hate white nationalist symbols and not hate America.

A white nationalist symbol...as of, what, three days ago? This "controversy" over the flag didn't exist until that untalented failure of an NFL player made an issue of it, and you know it.

(btw, remember when NFL kneelers supposedly weren't protesting the flag and country, just a specific BLM issue? I remember. Good times debunking that blatant lie)

But sure. If this is the hill you want to die on, be my guest. Calling the American flag a racist symbol. Great strategy for winning elections, bro.





At this rate, how long do you think the Trump dynasty's hold over the White House will persist? I'm thinking 2060 at least, but that's just my own opinion.

I seriously feel sorry for you if something this silly can trigger you.

Here is a Nike shoe with the modern American flag. No one has complained

If you'll pay attention, I'm not complaining about a gutless company going full PC. I'm complaining about Democratic Party politicians endorsing this bullshit, as if it was all an acceptable position for an American political party to take.

And yes, "multiple presidential candidates condemning the American flag as a racist symbol" is a trigger-worthy event. Sorry bro.

Nazis fighting to keep the flag of the american slavery rebellion alive and relevant just isn't surprising. Nor is rugian being an unabashed nazi.

hood,

When are you being evacuated to Israel to escape the rabid leftist anti-Semitism that is currently plaguing this country? Just curious.

That is perhaps the most retarded label I've ever seen for the American Revolution, especially when you consider that the empire had slavery for another half century.

Wait so the Betsy Ross flag is racist because it existed at the same time as slavery? I guess the moon is racist, and the Sun. And the Grand Canyon.

Even the ADL doesn't consider it a hate symbol. This is all manufactured.

I'll guess Trump brings a Betsy Ross flag to his 'celebrate me' 4th of July rally tomorrow as he loves to unify people

for the record, I'm against the Nike decision, no reason to surrender symbols

on the other hand, the damage is done, if they did change minds and start to sell them, wearers would be presumed to be a white supremacist by various people... and white supremacists would indeed all be buying

"Former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke also approved of Nike's decision, noting that "white nationalist groups" have "appropriated" the Betsy Ross flag."

And when that happens we need to "appropriate" it back. Fly it or display it as you wish and when someone tells you it is racist tell them your displaying it has nothing to do with race. If they insist then a simple fuck off will suffice.

An issue literally nobody cares about except fragile white snowflakes like Rugian.

White Lives Matter has to be one of the saddest political group ever.

"nobody cares about"

A massive corporation rolled back a product line that was already distributed and presidential candidates are chiming in. STFU

A "problem" for both sites of the aisle to get upset about. It's all the media's fault, obviously for creating this non-issue to begin with. But as Rugian said, the problem is that we have presidential candidates who are leveraging for their bullshit campaigns.

This story smells like a marketing ploy.

It first appeared in the Wall Street Journal sourced anonymously. Kapernick didn't even release a statement and I heavily doubt they clear every new shoe with him.

Here's our racist shitbag president prominently flying the flag behind him:

Democrats are completely off the rails at this point. What basic American symbol will they arbitrarily decide to turn on next?
