Former NFL player Burgess Owens compared Nike’s new Colin Kaepernick ad to “9/11 and Pearl Harbor” in an appearance on the Fox Business Network.
Owens, a former first-round pick who played for the New York Jets and Oakland Raiders in the 70s and 80s, complained that Nike was joining the left’s “assault” on America.
“We now just have Nike, for instance, just joining this fray,” Owens said. “And as we see a little bit less probably of the kneeling, we’re going to still see the narrative by Nike. And that is a Marxist who’s going to be the face and commercial in the NFL games from this point moving on.”
“We have to look at the bigger picture and understand, America, that we are under assault. It’s like 9/11 and Pearl Harbor ― we’re being assaulted by the left,” he claimed.
“And we need to understand who they are ― the globalists and the leftist globalists,” he added. “The worst thing that could happen to our country is to let them get away with it.”

Ex-NFL player and conservative author Burgess Owens goes on an insane rant on Fox Business and says Nike's Colin Kaepernick ad is "like 9/11 and Pearl Harbor." Sick to compare a freakin' shoe commercial to these national tragedies, especially a day before the anniversary of 9/11. pic.twitter.com/badXY79axf
