Because everything is offensive and meanings are interchangeable these days, all it takes is a small complaint from a minority group to get what they want.

Do you drive a Jeep Cherokee?

If so, you may not be able to get a future model.

The boss of Jeep’s parent company says he’s willing to stop slapping the Cherokee Nation’s name on the automaker’s SUVs.

Carlos Tavares, the CEO of newly formed auto conglomerate Stellantis, expressed openness to the change after the nation’s largest Native American tribe urged Jeep to ditch the branding.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Tavares said Stellantis was having discussions with the Cherokee Nation about Jeep’s use of the name on two of its most popular vehicles: the Grand Cherokee and the smaller Cherokee model that was introduced in 2013.

“We are ready to go to any point, up to the point where we decide with the appropriate people and with no intermediaries,” Tavares told the paper.

No Washington Redskins. No Cleveland Indians. Probably no Jeep Cherokee.

What’s next? Who is going to whine about something nonsensical tomorrow?

Theater where Pres. Lincoln was Shot Blasted for Tweet Dismissing His Legacy

Apparently Ford’s Theater — the place where President Lincoln was assassinated — thinks we need to knock him off his pedestal.

You know President Abraham Lincoln, the guy who freed the slaves, right? Well, apparently Ford’s Theater — the place where he was assassinated — thinks we need to knock Lincoln off his pedestal.

That’s right, the place that is only famous and a historic landmark because of Lincoln thinks Lincoln needs to be knocked down a few pegs.

This is just another example of leftists getting ahold of our historic landmarks and trying to undermine our history.

On Sept. 18, historic Ford’s Theater in Washington D.C. tweeted this:

Do you ever feel we, as a nation, put Abraham Lincoln “on a pedestal”?

What do you think might be a more useful, more complex, or more realistic way to think about or memorialize the 16th president?

(Screen shot below in case they try to delete it, but it was still live as of the posting of this article.)

That’s right, we need to be “more useful” in how we think about Lincoln. We need to know him off that pedestal.

And these people claim to be concerned about history!

Looks more like they are going woke.

New data finds that 60 percent of the businesses that shut down for COVID mitigation will be closed permanently and won’t be coming back.

New data from Yelp shows the terrible state of affairs, according to CNBC.

Yelp on Wednesday released its latest Economic Impact Report, revealing business closures across the U.S. are increasing as a result of the coronavirus pandemic’s economic toll.

As of Aug. 31, some 163,735 businesses have indicated on Yelp that they have closed. That’s down from the 180,000 that closed at the very beginning of the pandemic. However, it actually shows a 23% increase in the number of closures since mid-July.
In addition to monitoring closed businesses, Yelp also takes into account the businesses whose closures have become permanent. That number has steadily increased throughout the past six months, now reaching 97,966, representing 60% of closed businesses that won’t be reopening.

“Overall, Yelp’s data shows that business closures have continued to rise with a 34% increase in permanent closures since our last report in mid-July,” Justin Norman, vice president of data science at Yelp, told CNBC.

Congratulations Joe Biden, Anthony Fauci, and the entire Democrat establishment for destroying most of the country with you ineffective, unscientific lockdowns.
