Cleveland Indians surrender to “Team SJW” in battle over Chief Wahoo logo

David MenziesMission Specialist

 

In baseball news, the Cleveland Indians have surrendered to Team Social Justice Warrior and will stop using their iconic Chief Wahoo logo on uniforms beginning in the 2019 season.

The dispute is well known. The accusation from the usual suspects was that the logo amounted to cultural appropriation and negative stereotyping, and Indians are people, not mascots, etc..

Even the commissioner of baseball, Rob Manfred, has pressured Cleveland’s CEO, Paul Dolan, to jettison the Wahoo logo.

Yet, one wonders, in making such a whimpering concession to political correctness, have the Cleveland Indians and Major League Baseball painted themselves into a corner?

The impending removal of Chief Wahoo only raises more questions than answers.

Such a shame Indians’ ownership couldn’t emulate a no-surrender approach like that of the RedSkins owner who is vehemently against changing that team’s nickname and logo despite enormous pressure.

But alas, it seems Cleveland is no Washington.

All I have to say is PETA better stay away from Toronto. GO JAYS GO. Also leave the Argos alone as well. I am pretty sure Greek Canadians don’t give a damn.

- The Cleveland Indians & Major League baseball better get used to surrendering. SJWs don’t quit when you give into them. They will have more demands now – count on it.

I’m getting quite a collection of baseball caps sporting controversial logos.
What a bunch of nuts.

Wasn’t the team named “Indians” in honour of an Indian who was the star player around the beginning of the team?

It just goes on and on. Never ending. PC all the way. Why not change the team name to the “Politically Correcters” and never win a game because, well, that would hurt the other teams feelings.

Oh, give me a break!

Not sure what the Indians should change their name to, but Washington Waterboarders has a nice ring to it.
