Um…no. Hell no!
Sports clothing manufacturer Nike is introducing a new line of Muslim friendly sportswear which will include a hijab head covering featuring the Nike swoosh brand logo.
The new “Nike Pro Hijab” is the result of several years of advocacy and product development, the company says. It is made of a light, stretchy material with an extended cape to prevent the covering from becoming untucked during strenuous movement. A Nike swoosh is emblazoned prominently above the wearer’s ears.
Zahra Lari, an Emirati figure skater, celebrated the new product telling Vogue Arabic, “People may think or tell you that you can’t do certain things, but I’m going to show them you absolutely can. I am covered, I am Muslim,” she said.
“People should know that Emirati athletes are strong,” Lari added. “We’re confident women who know what we want to do, and we work very hard to accomplish what needs to be accomplished.”
“The Nike Pro Hijab has been a year in the making, but its impetus can be traced much further back to Nike’s founding mission, to serve athletes, with the signature addendum: If you have a body, you’re an athlete,” the company said in its announcement statement.
The Nike Pro Hijab will be available in three colors, black, vast grey, and obsidian, later this year or early in 2018, Nike said.
This is how a totalitarian state or regime, or in this case a regressive religion and political ideology, takes over.
For all the lefties who fear Hitler references so much, try this one on for size.
“The great strength of the totalitarian state is that it forces those who fear it to imitate it.” — Adolf Hitler
The attempt to normalize this kind of thing in western culture and calling anyone who disagrees with it Islamophobic is exactly how they infiltrate society. This may seem like a small and insignificant thing. But it’s one small step toward not being able to criticize anything that’s associated with Islam. This is why the left loves Islam so much. They don’t assimilate. And when their culture infiltrates ours with their violence and intolerance of everything not Islamic, the people are more than willing to forego their freedoms in exchange for their safety.
I like Under Armour better anyway.
