Nike, which recently dissed the American flag, implies in its new ad that the U.S. women’s soccer team should be immortalized on Mount Rushmore because it won its second FIFA World Cup championship.
Nike, which is one of the team’s sponsors, released a Twitter ad celebrating the milestone.
Didn’t New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady win SIX Super Bowl rings? Where’s his face going on Rushmore?
Team co-captain refuses to honor national anthem or flag
In an embarrassingly corny and maudlin tweetstorm, Nike said it hopes that the US women’s soccer team will inspire a generation of girls and boys to be just like co-captain Megan Rapinoe, who refuses to honor the national anthem and the American flag.
Reminder: Rapinoe recently said that “I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart, and I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again.”
Rapinoe also said that if invited, she won’t go to the White House. “I’m not going to the f—ing White House. No. I’m not going to the White House,” she puffed.
Nike tweeted: “I believe that we will make our voices heard and TV shows will be talking about us every single day and not just once every four years. And that women will conquer more than just the soccer field, like breaking every single glass ceiling and having their faces carved on Mount Rushmore.”

Twitter backlash: ‘Boycott Nike, they are unpatriotic’
However, Nike’s virtue-signaling backfired after the anti-American athletic brand got dragged on Twitter.
One person quipped: “Our family stopped purchasing all Nike products. One disgraceful word. Kaepernick!!”

US women’s soccer team dropped the US flag on the ground
Remember when the U.S. women’s soccer team dropped the American flag on the ground for a photo op? Is this why Nike thinks these people belong on Mount Rushmore?

How long before a transgender team beats the women’s team?
It’s ironic that leftists are celebrating the achievements of the U.S. women’s soccer team, considering the left prefers transgender athletes, most of whom crush biological women in sports competitions.
It’s only a matter of time before a transgender soccer team annihilates a biological women’s soccer team. And since transgenders “outrank” women on the Leftist Grievance Hierarchy, Nike should hold off on re-sculpting Mount Rushmore.
How long will it be before Nike tosses the (biological) women’s soccer team to the side in order to champion a transgender team? It won’t take long. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood recently declared that abortion is a “fundamental human right” for transgender men.
It’s very trendy among leftists to screech about transgender rights even though they make up a tiny portion of the U.S. population.
As reference, there are 328 million people in the United States. Of that, about 1.4 million people (or 0.4%) identify as transgender. That’s less than 1% of the entire U.S. population.
But the mainstream media gaslights you into believing that transgender individuals comprise a far larger percentage of the U.S. population.
