Destroying your own property to virtue signal doesn't actually hurt the company since they already have your money.

Instead, sign up for and/or pick up application packages for their in-store credit cards. You'll get prepaid envelopes with them; use those to mail Nike letters of disapproval, coupons for other stores, blank applications, a loogie, whatever you feel like. That way, it costs them to see your thoughts and at the very least they take a small hit (even if small).

Don't include a valid return address so they can't blacklist you from receiving future promo offers.

Right?

Do you remember the whole "freedom fries" and "freedom toast" junk when France wouldn't join the USA against Iraq or whatever? There were bars and private owners just pouring out champagne. All I could think is "they've already got your money though.."

I think what bothers me the most other than this is an obvious push to get people's panties in a twist, is that Nike has been a left leaning company FOREVER!!

It was founded in Eugene, OR and is headquartered in Portland. It is like the last big corporation headquartered in this state.

If people want to boycott then whatever, but obviously the ad was not meant for them. If anything, it was meant to divide and push the rhetoric of if it's not for me then it's for nobody. No, commies, you can buy Nike if you want to. You can leave your politics behind.

Bollocks. Who wants to be a walking advert for a bigoted company?

I just tossed two pairs of old trainers in the bin, and they are staying there. Got plenty adidas, etc. And I'm needing a new pair come to think of it.

Activism is symbolic though. Imagine the Boston Tea Party just nigging free tea, rather than uniting a nation with their symbolic, yet wasteful, protest.
