Mike Rowe, the former host of “Dirty Jobs,” is one of the most insightful conservatives we have on our side. He understands American history, limited government, and personal responsibility. He takes no prisoners when he calls out the left and their stupidity, and that includes Nike listening to a failed NFL quarterback who left football and turned down contracts to pursue victimhood.
Rowe dropped a lost post on Facebook to include his thoughts on the subject of Kaepernick and Nike: “I think Nike has the right to decorate their shoes with whatever flag they desire. I think Kaepernick has the right to offer marketing advice to any company that’ll take it. And I think you and I have the right to purchase whatever brand of tennis shoes we choose.”
Here’s an excerpt from one of Mike Rowe’s fans on his Facebook page:
“Why would anyone in their right mind support Nike after this latest round of nonsense? Why would any public company with an image to protect take advice from an athlete? How can our attention be sucked up by people with nothing better to do than complain about fireworks and tanks on the fourth of July? Our country seems to be losing its mind, or at the very least, its sense of history and perspective. As a man who has always seemed comfortable with our country’s flag, I was hoping you might have some insight to share on this, especially today.”
Off the Wall Why would anyone in their right mind support Nike after this latest round of nonsense? Why would any…

“In other words, I’m tempted on this day to remind you that there’s nothing inherently dangerous about a sneaker company currying favor with a woke athlete, or fellow citizens complaining about displays of patriotism and military might. On the other hand, I think Ronald Reagan was right when he said we’re always one generation away from losing the freedoms we currently enjoy. Along with the siren song of socialism, the persistent promise of ‘free’ stuff, and the breathtaking level of censorship on our college campuses, I worry about the growing belief among many that we can somehow improve our present by erasing our past; by toppling statues, outlawing ‘problematic’ symbols, or rewriting specific pieces of our history in ways that leave us feeling less offended.”

Rowe is right. The shift that we’ve seen in this country is unbearable. It seems that being patriotic, loving our nation and our flag, singing our national anthem and praying is now seen as a bad thing. The Left has tried to associate “nationalism” with “white supremacy,” and the comparison is, quite frankly, extremely rude.
Nationalism, in its honorable form, has nothing to do with idolatry, especially if your love of family and intent is noble. That is how we have made it this far. I cherish my family, friends, and way of life and would fight to protect it.

Many times I think we’re so focused on always making sure everyone is in a “safe space” that we neglect to instruct the youth of our rich nation’s history and what makes our country so amazing. We neglect to teach our youth the value of having relationships with other people, respecting our differences and understanding that we each have a right to our personal beliefs, even if we don’t always see eye-to-eye.
Rowe is on point once again with this piece. Sometimes I wish I could find him and sit down to have a conversation about life. I am sure it would be something else.

Romney is trying to do what he couldn't do when he had the nation's attention in the 2008 campaign – make himself relevant. Too late for Mitt. He's a has been Democrat posing as a Republican. Mormon bishops aren't supposed to tell lies. His god is punishing him.
Love Mike Rowe! He should run for President!
The answer is simple. Fifty years of allowing socialist teachers to brain wash our country s youth.
It’s a dirty job exterminating the non native species that are wreaking havoc in
Washington DC. The problem was created by the last resident of the White House.
He imported creatures that are not compatible with the environment and turned
them loose on the local natives in some fragile areas. Now they are multiplying
and trying to destroy everything. When they spread to Washington DC that was
the last straw they have to be stopped. It would be a hard dirty job Mike but I
think you would make a good Senator.
So the new definition of Patriot is what? Lover’s of war procreating “kids” to fight in wars to protect the people who rob the masses with taxes to support people who were not born in the country? Is a Patriot someone who follows the orders of mass murderers in the name of Jesus and a flag? FACT IS; JESUS HAS NOTHING TO DO W/AMERICA—-ABSOLUTELY NOTHING; WHICH IS WHY HOMOSEXUALS ARE EVERYWHERE SLOBBERING THEIR GAY TWANG TO LET EVERYONE KNOW WHAT THEY DO WITH THEIR BIBLICAL COLONS? FLAG WORSHIP IS IDOLATRY. SO IS STATUE WORSHIP. IF YOU UNDERSTOOD THE BIBLE, YOU WOULD KNOW THIS. PRAYING TO A GHOST ONLY PERPETUATES ABORTION, POVERTY, WAR, HATRED, BIGOTRY, SEXUAL PERVERSION, AN EVIL “medical” system, AN ABUSIVE INSURANCE SYSTEM………..THE “greatness” of America is not representative of ANY “WORDS of a GOOD GOD.” I am sick of the Nike name and the Kappernut, but I am also sick of “supporting” a country where the govt has been to my house with guns and threatened to murder my Spouse and I because a bank caught the IRS doing “illegal things” with OUR checking account. IRS also pointed a gun at us in an “audit,” and the FBI came to my work and threatened me. And the State Police threatened us over the phone relative to the National Guard violating our rights relative to OUR private home in a rural area. And I am equally SICK of people who never had/do not have a clue what GOD actually means telling me I need to embrace THEIR religion, political party & life philosophy
I have never bought an over priced anything that depended on fads to milk the public! Nike has factories where women are paid nothing to work to many hours to build a shoe that is priced to enrich the owners beyond honorable standards!
I guess it is more important for those to have purchased that shoe to be able to show off a name. That is all anyone gets out of the shoe! The name & how everyone else reacts to that name!
People with poor self esteem needs that recognition, I guess.
People with a lot of money who think that money makes them special are not going to keep that money long if they spend it so unwisely!
I do not care about Nike! I really don’t care about any athletes! Their opinions mean no more to me than any other human opinion. I make up my own mind!
My flag means something to me! My country means everything to me!
When a company or an athlete places themselves in a position to force something on me, my country through government control then I will destroy that company or athlete! That is what Nike & their fav Islamic/communist athletes are doing! That is why I will always reject anything companies like Nike & athletes, football players or soccer players, do against my country!
That is why I do not bow or stand silent against their assault!
Explain how she’s anti-American.
What makes her anti-American?
AND anti-American, so she fits.
Megan Rapinoe is doing ads for Nike. Last time I checked, she’s White
Nike is showing racism against white people, asian people and even hispanic americans by purposely
supporting an anti american black in the belief that will increase their profits…well Nike you just lost customers from all of the above:}
Epstein and Nike have something in common. “You can buy ‘anything’ with money.
i just have one thought on this nike and kapernick deal, “you can’t fix stupid”.
Speaking of disrespecting the flag….
Mike has always been one of my secret loves! His Mom is pretty cool too! More common sense in his little finger than most and so well spoken!! I’d take him as a son in a heartbeat!!
I totally agree with Mike I love America and the history stop. Destroying it. If you don’t like it move. Yea. Where could go since your living in the greatest country inthe world so stop the bs
Anyone in discuss with America needs to move out of our country and move to your closest middle east country with no options to ever visit America again. Please leave now you bunch of POS’s. All politicians that do not follow the law’s on the books need to be put in jail for 20 year mandatory sentence with no possibility of parole, loss of any pensions and only then will you see justice.
We need MORE intelligent conservatives like Mike Rowe to speak out ! The people on the RIGHT, are tired of hearing the stupid, and ignorant comments being made by the people on the left, people like Colin Kaepernick. For this man to have enough POWER to totally STOP a Company from manufacturing a patriotic, shoe because HE thinks that it is Racist, is beyond ridiculous !
For all the people who hate living in America, but wish to change it to resemble something much closer to what is in South America and most other parts of the world, there is an alternative.
Smart man and a patriot!
Very well spoken Mr Rowe, amazing how one person with a few logical and educated words can make a topic such as this make so much sense.. He is correct, Nike and klappy, are entitled to this ridiculous action, and we have every right to reject ,klappys
words and Nikes products. All the products. So it makes buying my running shoes. As well as workout clothes easier No Nike. My family agrees with this logic so now klappy is happy and Nike is happy and I am happy Thank you Mr Rowe
Mike Rowe 2024
WELL SAID MIKE ! How could any one say it more eloquently ! Thanks Mike I’m as proud of you as an American as I am sick of you know which part of the body is the Colon don’t you ? If so you know where Kaepernick is talking from !
Mike Rowe has more common sense and knowledge than almost every elected person in Congress and most academics in our universities. We would have a by far a better country and world to live in if everyone had some common sense and knowledge of our Constitution and history.
I always that Kaperdink looked like a black Carrot Top..
He is. When did he last play ? The talking dead.
Why is this clown in the news. he is a big nothing. Kaepernick should be buried forever,
WELL DONE MIKE ROWE…….TOO SOFT ON NUTTY NIKE AND PLAYER KOOKY KAEPERNICK. SECOND RATE FOOTY PLAYER WITH MARXIST LEANINGS……. IF HE DOESNT LIKE THE USA, TRY SOMALIA, SUDAN, MALI, CONGO, ALGERIA, LYBIA OR PAKISTAN…..IN THOSE PLACES HE WILL FIT IN FINE….THEY ALL LOO JUST LIKE HIM, SO NO REASON TO COMPLAIN!
I LOVE this man!!
The biggest loser. (Does that count as one blank?)
Think you spelled his name wrong, I thought it was Colon Crapperneck. Every time he opens his mouth crap comes out.
A-hole. Blank filled!!!!!
Real life loser
That girlfriend of his has a lot of bearing on that- Unpatriotic wuss.
Islamic terrorist! That is really what he is & what is driving him!
Islamic Queer POS just like Barrack the Kenyan!
Mike Rowe = Patriot
Colin Kaepernick = ___________ (fill in the blank)
It is coming this year or next.
Civil war has already started when the losing party tries in every way possible to impeach a duly elected President. Civil war has started when cities decide which laws they will enforce and which they will not. Civil war has started when a sitting president is not permitted to reverse an unconstitutional amnesty order from a former president. Civil war has started when states like California believe they can negotiate treaties with other countries. And the list goes on. Just isn’t a shootin’ war …yet.
I hear there are plenty of empty houses there. They can make a deal with one of the ‘immigrants’ coming here.
Pack?! Just throw their stuff in the back of a U-Haul truck. Then throw them in.
me too. I would not; however, pack neatly. I would throw everything together to hasten departure.
I;d help all of them pack!!
why the commies want our 2nd taken away, right their might just start the 2nd revolution. America stays as written, commies and socialist should just pack it in and move to Venezuela Cuba is to close. hahahah
The left wants a civil war…but they sure won’t like the way it goes if it comes.
Unless you repent and ask for foregiveness.
