Our own (This Country) history has shown us our bigotry and cruelty, something not to be forgotten or marginalized. Because our gross errors in a historical context we learn from to become in part a better country on the whole and more importantly, so we do not repeat them.
However, the Progressive left regime has been systematically erasing what the American Indians hold sacred; their history and they are using the useful idiots, aka social justice warriors as their mouthpiece, all in the name of political correctness and “wokeness”.
Land O’Lakes Butter
The punchline here is – the White Man is taking the land…again. But WHY was the Indian maiden removed?
“Land O’Lakes butter’s packaging will no longer feature the American Indian “Butter Maiden” on its packaging. … Instead, the dairy brand’s President and CEO Beth Ford explained they felt showing “our farmer-owners whose milk is used to produce Land O’Lakes’ dairy products” better reflects what they stand for.” Apr 16, 2020 People Magazine
Beth, you ignorant slut! “…better reflects what they stand for”? Do you even know WHY the “Butter Maiden” was on the packaging in the first place?
“Mia was originally created for Land O’Lakes packaging in 1928. In 1939, she was redesigned as a native maiden kneeling in a farm field holding a butter box. In 1954, my father, Patrick DesJarlait, redesigned the image again. … By often working with Native American imagery, he maintained a connection to his identity.”Apr 29, 2020 Washington Post
Ms. Ford had she shown that Patrick DesJarlait was an Ojibwe Indian honoring his heritage perhaps she would have reconsidered and not caved in to the destructive SJW fad…
The Cleveland Guardians, née Indians
So WHY the name change, and WHY now?
Per ESPN (July 23,2021):
Team owner Paul Dolan has said last summer’s social unrest, touched off by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, spurred his intention to change the club’s name.
“We do feel like we’re doing the right thing and that’s what’s driving this,” Dolan said. “I know some people disagree, but if anything I’ve gotten more and more comfortable that we’re headed in the right direction. And actually, the selection of the name solidifies that feeling because of the values that the name represents.”
What the name represents? Paul, you pathetic pussy. Mr. Dolan, here’s some history that is obviously lost on you:
In 1915 to honor former player Louis Sockalexis, Cleveland Naps became known as the Indians. Louis was was the first Native American in professional baseball.
So history tells us it was out of respect, but that doesn’t fit today’s narrative. Mr. Dolan instead of catering to the ignorant SJW movement, you could have manned the fuck up and educated them as to the why, the history, the honor. You took the easy way out.
Instead of doing the RIGHT thing, yet again society has given into the Pole Smoking SJW and progressive leftist regime for lack of knowledge.
