Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
Nike just gave America a perfect example of cowardly political correctness that is not only an insult to our country, it is an insult to our great Founding Fathers and Founding Mothers who gave us this great country that has brought freedom to over 1 billion people around the world with our blood and treasure in World War I, WWII, through the Marshall Plan, and by winning the Cold War without firing a shot.
Betsy Ross, who made the flag that Nike cowardly withdrew, was considered a hero for women for her courage in the American Revolution. But Nike caved in to the ignorant political correctness that seems to dominate us today. I for one will never buy a Nike product again. After I heard about Nike’s cowardice, I immediately cut the Nike logos off my running shoes. Nike just made a horrific mistake. At least for today, a majority of Americans are proud of America and Nike just lost those customers. Not only was Nike’s decision an insult to our country, it will have a bad ROI as patriots stop buying their products. Karma is tough, Nike!
