Washington Redskins Officially Announce Name Change

Published

on

All weekend long rumors floated around the Internet that the Washington Redskins would be capitulating to the insanity of radical leftist social justice warriors and would change their name, as many in the liberal movement say it’s “offensive” to Native Americans.

Never mind, of course, that the team was actually named by Native Americans, nor the fact that the logo was also designed by a Native American.

Well, it turns out the rumors are true. The Redskins announced on Monday they would indeed be changing the team’s name.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

The team, which has gone by the old name since the 1930s, announced on Monday that it will no longer use the term “Redskins” after critics have claimed it was racist and insensitive to Native Americans. In a statement team owner Dan Snyder and head coach Ron Rivera said they are “working closely to develop a new name and design,” which have not yet been revealed. The Washington Post reported that the team is unable to reveal the new name because there is an ongoing trademark dispute.

Synder, who purchased the team in 1999, has repeatedly refused to change the team name and defended it in previous years, but calls for the team to change its name were renewed following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody. Protests, which were mostly peaceful, have spread across the country, demanding an end to systemic racism and police brutality. Some cities are still having demonstrations six weeks after his death.

You can almost guarantee that with the faltering of the Redskins to political correctness, pressure will be applied to other sports teams such as the Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Chiefs, and the Atlanta Braves. All of these teams use Native American imagery and culture as the basis for the team’s branding efforts.

What’s truly horrific and exceedingly ignorant about all of this is how foolish the left is being. They think they are being crusaders of some sort like the Civil Rights movement back in the 1960s, but the truth is, they’re actually hurting the very people they claim to be helping.

They are cancelling out Native American history and culture. The Redskins have a history of being a proud term for many folks of that particular heritage. This is what virtue signaling does. It destroys. Here’s to hoping SJWs wake up to the harm they are doing to the country before its too late.

Save conservative media!

Rashida Tlaib Seals Victory In Michigan Democratic House Primary

Published

on

Well, it’s looking likely everyone’s favorite “Squad” of anti-Semitic starlets in the House will be reunited for another go at Congress as Rep. Rashida Tlaib won the Michigan Democratic House primary race. Tlaib is gunning for a second term representing Michigan’s 13th congressional district. She defeated Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones. Here’s more information via The Washington Examiner: Their election was defined by the issues of race and her resource monopoly compared to Jones. Tlaib’s victory was a surprise given the record number of black Detroit voters who mailed in their ballots to officials ahead of the Aug. 4 primary. Tlaib and Jones first met in the 2018 special election to replace the late Rep. John Conyers. Conyers had resigned over sexual misconduct accusations at the height of the #MeToo movement. Jones won the four-way special election before Tlaib clinched victory by fewer than 1,000 votes five weeks later. The second contest was against a more crowded six-way field for the longer stint in Washington. All four of their former general election rivals backed Jones, a 15-year councilor. Polling was sparse throughout the race, but a Target-Insyght poll late last month had Tlaib in front, 53% to 24% . The Palestinian-American, who along with Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar was one of the first two Muslim women to win seats in Congress, was leading in the cash stakes. She raised $2.9 million, in contrast to Jones’ $140,000 in July. Jones was disadvantaged after contracting COVID-19 as well. If there’s two people this country could stand to see less of, it’s Tlaib and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Unfortunately, despite all of their anti-Semitic remarks poor decision making, they will probably win second terms. Try not to hurt yourself jumping with joy.

Biden Delivers Bizarre Interview; Walks Back Claims On Cognitive Tests, Rambles On About ‘Cocaine’

Published

on

Over the last year or so, there’s been a lot of speculation that Joe Biden’s mental health is in serious decline. He’s lost his train of thought in the middle of a sentence on numerous occasions, needed to have questions repeated, rambled incoherently, forgotten parts of the Declaration of Independence, and much more. Do we really want a guy like that in the White House? Of course not. But the left is moving full steam ahead with him as their candidate anyway. Biden recently gave a very strange interview in which he walked back previous claims of taking cognitive tests and rambled on about cocaine. You just have to to see this for yourself. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “Have you taken a cognitive test?” CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett asked. “No, I haven’t taken a test,” Biden shot back. “Why the hell would I take a test? Come on man, that’s like saying, you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?” “What do you say to President Trump, who brags about his test and makes your mental state an issue for voters?” the host pressed as Biden laughed. “Well, if he can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about,” Biden responded. “Did you watch that, look, come on man, I, I, I know you’re trying to goad me, but I mean I’m so forward looking to have an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president and debates. There gonna be plenty of time, and by the way, as I joke with’em, you know, I, I shouldn’t say it. I’m going to say something, I…
