A little more than a week after pulling state incentives from Nike following its decision to pull its Betsy Ross Flag shoes after former NFL star Colin Kaepernick raised issues around them, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) reversed his stance.

Ducey tweeted Thursday welcoming a Nike facility to Goodyear, Ariz., saying the company will bring more than 500 jobs and $184 million to the state.

Arizona GOP governor reverses course after Betsy Ross flag controversy, now 'welcomes' Nike facility

What would you expect, from a hypocrite Republican?

They're commie because they discontinued a shoe line in China at the behest of the Chinese Communist Party because the designer of the show supported civil rights for Hong Kong. Nike pulled a shoe line from China after its designer supported Hong Kong protests
"Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything", my ass.
While Nike is kowtowing to the Chinese government and disrespecting the American flag, protesters in Hong Kong who are actually fighting against oppression are flying the American flag.

These are people being attacked and arrested because they are fighting for freedom. Unlike certain pampered athletes who had guaranteed contracts and get millions in endorsement deals.

Yup. But that doesn't make the athletes wrong.
