Saturday News Roundup: Major League Baseball is led by Cowards

I guess I’m confused here.

Major League Baseball announced Friday that it will move this year’s All Star Game out of Atlanta in a direct surrender to the cancel culture crowd that is outright lying about a voting procedures bill passed by the Georgia legislature. In announcing this pathetic act of cowardice, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said that the move was was “the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport”, and said it was taken after consultation with the sport’s cowardly owners, managers and current and former players.

So, what exactly are the “values” of MLB at this point? They certainly have nothing to do with voting rights. After all, the Georgia bill actually expands voting rights in the state, adding additional days for early voting and more hours for the polls to remain open. Those “values” certainly have nothing to do with honesty, or courage, or standing up to bullies, given that MLB just caved in a cowardly manner into outright lies about this law coming from the bullies in the Perpetual Outrage Mob and the corrupt national news media.

What about racism – is MLB taking a stand against that by refusing to hold a single all-star game in a state that wants to require a voter to produce identification in order to vote? Not really, no. After all, MLB has held multiple all-star games in Texas, where voter ID has always been required in most circumstances. It has held all-star games in several other states that have always required an ID to vote.

And if a voter ID requirement is suddenly “racist,” how do we explain new polls from multiple leftist organizations that show such a provision being supported by more than 70% of the U.S. population, including majorities of Blacks, Hispanics and … wait for it … even Democrats?

Also, if MLB is taking a stand against supposed “racism” here, how can the league possibly still, in the year 2021, allow the team in Atlanta to continue carrying the name “Braves,” after decades of protests against that moniker by leftist Indian protest groups who claim that the name is racist? Indeed, if MLB won’t play its All Star Game in Atlanta, why then is it planning to allow this anti-Indian racist baseball team to play 81 home games in the very same city this year?

What does all of that reality say about the “values” of MLB and Rob Manfred?

It says they’re a bunch of money-grubbing cowards who are afraid to take a stand against the real bullies in American society today. That’s what it says about them and their “values.”

That is all.

The Real Drivers of the Washington Redskins Name Change: Wealthy White Liberals

This was not at all the outcome the WaPo had hoped to obtain. – A poll commissioned by the Washington Post in 2016 found that 9 out of 10 American Indians (who all the wealthy white liberals love to call “native Americans” in hushed tones as they take a sip of their chardonnay produced from former Indian lands in the Napa Valley) are not at all offended by the name “Washington Redskins.”

Wait, what?

I swear I’m not making this up. Here’s an excerpt from the WaPo piece about the poll:

Nine in 10 Native Americans say they are not offended by the Washington Redskins name, according to a new Washington Post poll that shows how few ordinary Indians have been persuaded by a national movement to change the football team’s moniker.

The survey of 504 people across every state and the District reveals that the minds of Native Americans have remained unchanged since a 2004 poll by the Annenberg Public Policy Center found the same result. Responses to The Post’s questions about the issue were broadly consistent regardless of age, income, education, political party or proximity to reservations.

Among the Native Americans reached over a five-month period ending in April, more than 7 in 10 said they did not feel the word “Redskin” was disrespectful to Indians. An even higher number — 8 in 10 — said they would not be offended if a non-native called them that name.

[End]

So, if that’s the case – and there is no newer research indicating that prevailing attitudes among the U.S. American Indian population has changed in the past four years – why is the ownership of the Redskins now in the process of abandoning the team name for something else?

Why, to appease wealthy white liberals and the news media, of course. Why else would they do it? There is literally no other reason for it.

Full disclosure: I’m a Dallas Cowboys fan, and could not care less what the Washington football franchise chooses to call itself. The Cowboys will just keep beating them 62% of the time, as they have always done.

But at some point, we all have to step back and recognize the undeniable fact that every issue we have seen emanating from the political left in America for the past century is generated by the terminally offended wealthy white liberal class. Every one of them.

Think about it: During the course of this COVID-19 pandemic, who have all of the “Karens” been? What is their near-100% profile? Wealthy and white liberal women. Their male counterparts are by and large wealthy and white liberal men.

When you viewed the scenes of the Antifa/BLM- staged riots on your TV screens throughout the month of June, who made up the vast majority of the rioters? Weren’t 8 or 9 out of every 10 of them white? What about all the “peace” rallies you saw, with the thousands of participants engaging in chants and self-flagellation normally seen in extreme religious cults? Weren’t pretty much all of white?

When you look at the mug shots of the hundreds of Antifa/BLM terrorists who have been arrested by the Department of Justice of the past few weeks, what is the prevailing profile? Isn’t it a bunch of pasty-faced young white adults? Sure they are.

These are the children of upper-middle-class to upper-class white parents, technically adult children who have no inner values and are so wracked with the guilt of their privileged upbringings that they spend their time desperately seeking ways to identify with people who have real problems and blaming them all on “society.”

Most American Indians couldn’t care less about the name “Washington Redskins” for the simple fact that they have more pressing things in their lives to spend their time worrying about. Only the wealthy white liberal class in this country has the time and the freedom to spend their waking hours obsessing over whether or not the name of a sports team might be offensive to someone else.

Now, take a look at the talking heads you see on cable TV channels like CNN and MSNBC, and who do you see? By and large, a bunch of wealthy white liberals. MSNBC’s prime time lineup looks like a family reunion on Nantucket Island. Take Don Lemon out of the mix, and the same can be said for CNN. These are by and large the offspring from very wealthy northeastern liberal families, families with names like Cuomo and Vanderbilt and O’Donnell. A bunch of wealthy white liberals telling you that you are all horrible people who root for sports teams with bad names, like the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Indians and Atlanta Braves, none of which are offensive to the vast, overwhelming majority of actual American Indians.

The Braves management has announced that they’ll probably keep their team name, but they’re gonna ban the “tomahawk chop” cheer that has become ubiquitous at Braves home games. They’re doing this not to protect the sensibilities of American Indians, but to avoid the ire of the wealthy white liberal class that dominates the American news media, not to mention their class of season ticket holders. The Cleveland Indians abandoned their logo of Chief Wahoo years ago to appease all the wealthy white liberal outrage.

The change of the Redskins name is a fait accompli at this point, and the new name will be announced very soon. I’d prefer the “DC Swamp Rats” personally, but rumor is that “Washington Warriors” is the current favorite to prevail. That is, unless some think tank dominated by the offspring of wealthy white liberal families with Ivy League educations finds some reason to find the word “Warriors” offensive.

When the new name is finally announced, wealthy white liberals will cheer and raise their glasses of chardonnay in a toast to their own fine sensibilities. Meanwhile, the vast majority of American Indians won’t even notice.

That is all.
