Tags: MLB PC Dolts Cleveland Indians Chief Wahoo

 
There he is...The good old days, perched up on top of the old Cleveland Municipal Stadium...The Mighty Chief Wahoo...But as we wait for opening day to get started, we have to remember, outside of Progressive Field there will be a small group of "Activists" protesting...It happens every year for opening day...Then the number of protesters drops as the rest of opening weekend goes on...Then you don't see them for the rest of the year...Not much conviction there huh!?!

And what are they protesting? Two things...The Cleveland Indians name itself...But more so, Chief Wahoo...The Indians mascot/logo since 1915...He's changed over the years, and there are people who continue to cry about the changes...


Many feel the smiling, red faced Chief is offensive, disrespectful, and racist...I have no problem with the name Indians, and it annoys me when ever I hear people complain about it, along with The Braves, Redskins, Blackhawks, Seminoles, and Fighting Sioux, just to name a few...These names were given out of respect for the many Native American tribes...

Is Chief Wahoo the best depiction of an Indian...Maybe not, but look at the rest of those logos...All those Indians are portrayed as fierce, or angry, or ready for war, or at least very serious...At least our guy actually has a smile on his face...Would these P C obsessed dolts prefer a honest representation of Native American life...

How about we show the Chief and his tribe being killed off by disease the white man brought with him...Or how about showing the Chief having his land stolen from him, and then turning to alcohol abuse to drown his sorrows...But don't worry, we'll update the Chief...Because now he's been handed the keys to a Casino, paying squat in taxes, and living the dream...I bet he'd look something like this...


Holy shit, we don't have to change it...They nailed it already!

The organization has tried to quietly, tried to squeeze the Chief out...Around 5 or 6 years ago they introduced a cap with a script I as an alternate cap...This was the hat the entire stadium staff was wearing...But it didn't take off...Then a few years ago, they brought back the block C that they had worn back in the early '80s...They have to versions of this...A red one for the alternate home uniform...A blue one for the road gray uniform...But we have the Chief with the home uniform and the away dark jersey...

I hope the block C falters like the script I...Leave Chief Wahoo alone...He's been fine all these years...I'm tired of this overly PC world always sticking their noses in everything and messing with it...I'm tired of some many people thinking they aren't suppose to be offended...Listen, the world is offensive, get use to it!

The Beeze.
