Is it still about the shoes? Nike’s latest ad builds on the company’s tradition of slickly-edited propaganda and hypocrisy

Selling shoes must be Nike’s aim, because the alternative is twice as bizarre.

That alternative is that Nike, a global megacorporation whose pockets are lined with the profits of slave labor, has appointed itself chief propagandist for a movement to dismantle the power structure of America on behalf of the ‘oppressed’ women, blacks and Muslims of the world.

It’s that Nike, a company that donates to Republican candidates every election cycle, supports an anti-police organization founded by “trained Marxists,” whose stated aim is to destroy “capitalism, patriarchy and colonialism.” It’s chipped in $40 million dollars to this organization and those like it.

It must be about the shoes, right?
