Lawmaker wants Cleveland Indians to change name



Published: Wed, August 6, 2014 @ 2:21 p.m.

COLUMBUS

A Democratic state lawmaker is hoping to convince his colleagues in the legislature to urge the Cleveland Indians to change its name and mascot to something he says is “free of racial insensitivity.”

Sen. Eric Kearney (D-Cincinnati), a short-time running mate with gubernatorial hopeful Ed FitzGerald, introduced Senate Concurrent Resolution 42 Wednesday, noting that the professional baseball franchise and its Chief Wahoo logo “have been criticized for perpetuating Native American stereotypes.”

Once again we have another liberturd with to much time on his hands. It's too bad this guy doesn't do something more meaningful with his time then this. This is just another reason why we need to get these people out of our government.

Since Ohio is the site (Gnadenhutten) of the first mass slaughter of Native Americans (all Christian converts) west of the Alleghenies, no ugly racist images of Native Americans should ever be associated with any Ohio institution, least of all a major league baseball team. Dump Wahoo along with the name Indians into the trash heap of racist history, and move on to justice for all.

In an unrelated event in 1755 during the French and Indian War (part of the Seven Years' War), Native Americans allied with the French and massacred 11 missionaries.
Attis... get a life.

These 2 knuckleheads are "poster boys" for todays democrat party. Don't worry about Illegal Aliens with TB or Toledo's poison water, Chief Wahoo is obviously the top priority!

What a bunch of lily livered, thin skinned, wimps.

Get over this sensitivity business and go to work.

This country was not built by cry babies but could be destroyed by them.
