    So which one of you trumptards burned your own shoes because the company made a bet on the right side of history and had the gall to support a man who forfeited his NFL career by using his visibility to kneel against racialized police brutality? How dare these sons of bitches completely ruin our football watching experience right? Don't they know there's NEVER a right time and place to try chamging a status quo that I benefit from?! icon_lol.gif

    Even if the politicizing of the NFL can't lead to the end of police brutality, it takes a certain kind of deplorable to be so offended as to burn shoes over it

    Conservatism is a grave psychiatric disorder as evidenced by all these brain dead Trumptards destroying their Nike athletic wear. Yet I dont see any of our regressive right wingers on here commenting about the horrible failure of the Nike/Kaepernick boycott. But they sure love to defend those narrow minded, bible thumping screwballs from Chick fil A. Oh the blatant hypocrisy from the right wing is just stunning beyond belief.

    The boycott of Disney World by Christian conservatives failed as did the boycott of Chick-fil-A by liberals. Starbucks has been targeted for boycott as has Nike. Both have been unsuccessful.

    Once a company is large enough and has enough market share, it's very difficult for a boycott to be effective. The NFL did lose a lot of viewers over the anthem protests, but it didn't cripple the league.
