Jim Carrey Sports A Brand New Pair Of Nike Sneakers On ‘Real Time With Bill Maher’

They are going to turn Nike into a damn social justice warrior symbol.

Like I said, be very careful of revolutions and protests. If they are not grounded in strong pro-freedom demands, they could go very wrong.

 

A note to libertarian supporters of knee bender Colin Kaepernick. His message is not libertarian. It is one of Marxian-style class hate.

Note two: Nike did not make a mistake in its marketing. It was aiming at urban primitives and socialist-supporting college youth who will want to identify with the urban primitives.

  1. In an intentionally polarized world the sucks away the attention and activity of generations to the detriment of all, why do we even have to ponder it to begin with? Buy Nikes - Burn Nikes there is no reason to care .... just do it over there and stay of my lawn!

  2. Libertarians should oppose Kaepernick and his supporters. He thinks it's OK to steal your employer's time and money to make political statements. Absolutely disgusting.

    1. And making all your employees stand at attention for the federal war hymn is not a political statement itself?

    2. Re: Paul and SP,

      You are both correct: Kaepernick is under a contractual obligation to follow the policies of the company he works for. He could've resigned if he wanted to be free to make a statement. At the same time, the NFL management teams placed the teams in a bad situation by aligning the teams with the US government's requirement to participate in propagating political propaganda which the government had no right to require in the first place.

      However, and this is my personal take, I dislike Kaepernick's self-righteous attitude much LESS than the government's, because at least Kaepernick can't take your life on a whim or by "an unfortunate error". Kaepernick doesn't bomb wedding parties in rural areas of the world. I don't consider Kaepernick's efforts particularly effective, or endearing, but he doesn't hurt anyone by his actions, nor does Nike.

  3. There's something I've learned listening to actors and celebrities talk about things they don't understand or only have a very superficial understanding of, and that is that the world is full of rich fools. Carrey is a very talented comedian and mime; what he does for a living is not easy. But he's not even at the level of a mediocre political analyst or political philosopher. He, like many of his ilk, espouse wrongheaded ideas because they think it helps their image with the "it" crowd. Carrey is a charlatan, just like his fellow actors and celebrities, just like Bill Maher.

    1. I don't think Carry is a charlatan. I think he thinks he is helping. My guess is most dogooder celebs do. These people are confused, not malicious.
