Tucker Carlson Slams Nike for Using Colin Kaepernick as a Pawn in Its ‘Decadent Scheme’
CARLSON: "It is pretty decadent. It is actually ludicrous. You can’t give up everything and maintain a Nike contract but the decadent part isn’t about Colin Kaepernick. He is an athlete and a young guy. I would give him a pass on a lot of this. The executives profiting from him and his attacks on the United States while denying they are attacks on the united States. They are saying he raised the issue of racial discrimination that has never been raised before. The historical problems with that are obvious to every single American. This is an attack on the country. It would be different if he were saying I’m protesting this politician or this policy or this specific person for doing this specific thing but sitting during the national anthem is a way of making a broad-based generalized and impossible to rebut attack against the country that made him and Nike rich. There is something decadent about that when the most successful people in your society hate this society you have a real problem."
