Fox Business Guest: ‘It’s Un-American Not to Boycott’ Nike Over Kaepernick Ad


It’s hard to out-crazy Kurt Schlichter, author of Second Civil War erotica. But his fellow guest on Fox Business Network Friday afternoon came pretty close.

Eric Schiffer, an entrepreneur, was asked to respond to Nike’s new ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL quarterback best known for kicking off the league’s protests against police brutality that involved kneeling for the national anthem.

Schiffer was furious. Of Nike, he told Fox host Liz MacDonald: “They’re phrase ‘Just Do It’ means ‘We don’t care about conservatives.'”

The entrepreneur then declared it “un-American” not to boycott Nike over the ad.

Schlichter closed out the interview with a high-octane rant about Nike alienating “the half of Americans who built this country, defend this country, feed and fuel this country, make this country work.”

“We aren’t playing, we’re done, good luck to you, adios Nike!” he concluded.

“Have a good weekend you guys!” MacDonald said.
