RUSH: Now, one other thing from the past, and that happens to be Nike and Colin Kaepernick. I read a funny piece somewhere over the weekend about the courage of Colin Kaepernick crossing the Delaware, as though he were somehow equivalent to George Washington.
Anyway, the point here is that any time the left wants to tell you that they’re not anti-American, you just have to look at this episode here. I go back and forth between the term “un-American” and “anti-American,” and I don’t think we should shy away from anti-American, because, folks, that’s what the Democrat Party is. Make no mistake about it. This is where they’ve thrown their lot in.
I can’t imagine the thinking, but it’s present. It’s front and center that somehow to win the presidency in this country you have got to hate this country, you’ve got to have major problems with it. This country has got to be the biggest repository of unfairness, injustice that the world has ever spawned and the idea that it’s unsuitable as it exists, they somehow think they’re going to win, and they’re now in a contest to see who can get the more radical position on all of this. And it’s epitomized in this Colin Kaepernick Nike business.
So here’s Nike, who must have done some market research and thought that they had a great product on their hands, they’re gonna introduce a new set of sneakers or tennis shoes with the Betsy Ross flag on the back of the shoe. Now, the reason the Betsy Ross flag’s important is because Betsy Ross — and she was a tough woman. She was one of the early feminists before the word was coined, before the term was coined.
And she created the first flag that had the Stars and Stripes, 13 stars in the blue rectangle in the upper left hand — and Colin Kaepernick comes out, who we all thought was simply opposed to the cops. He was kneeling during the national anthem at national football games featuring his team, the San Francisco 49ers and he said, “Nah, nah, nah, I’m just protesting the wanton killing of blacks by racist cops.”
