    Default Trump criticizes Cleveland Indians name change

    If he is upset about this name change, wait till they rename the army posts named after confederate generals?!!

    Former President Trump criticized the Cleveland Indians' decision to change the baseball franchise's name to the Guardians, saying "many Indians" will likely be upset by the decision.

    "Can anybody believe that the Cleveland Indians, a storied and cherished baseball franchise since taking the name in 1915, are changing their name to the Guardians? Such a disgrace," Trump said

    I guess the Notre Dame fighting Irish LEPERCHAUN isn't being canceled.

    Because Irish people hardly care.

    Of course Irish were born with privileged skin color.

    What a JOKE the Left is of today.

    Of course he does, it is an easy "issue" to demogogue, fits nicely into the cancel culture rhetoric, doesn't say anything of his followers in Red States disproportionately catching and dying from Covid, but having a say on a sports team changing their name is right up his alley

    "And I guarantee that the people who are most angry about it are the many Indians of our Country," Trump added.
    He’s not wrong…

    Doesn't even faze me anymore. The dude is senile. He's waving his fist in the air and yelling at children from his porch. If people didn't bathe him, clothe him, and blow dry his hair, he would look like crazy subway guy in 24 hours.

    The Traffic Guardians are an Icon in Cleveland. Not a bad choice if you are going to change the name.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    I criticize his name change from Drumpf to Trump.

    A Modest Proposal For Separating Blue States From Red

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Let’s face it, guys: We’re done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    You're of Native American decent. Anecdotal of course but what's you or your family's thoughts on sports teams names such as the Redskins, Indians, Chiefs etc.? (Or others in the NA community that you may speak to about this)

    This thread brings to mind the following question:

    Did Trump make a mistake with how he used social media, and if so at what point did it become a mistake?

    I saw someone the other day argue well that it became a mistake Jan 20 2017.
    A life lived in fear is a life half lived. Aim higher.

    Simple. but accurate. acid test I like for anyone who criticize the abondoning of Native American sports nicknames, would you go up to a person on the street you recognized as a Native American and openly address them as "redskin?" For example, "hey redskin, which was is the ballpark?"

    Considering he is of NA decent would he not be allowed to do so if he desired? Should black people not be allowed to call themselves the n*word?
