The Cleveland Indians of Major League Baseball (MLB), who recently caved to pressure from woke leftists and decided to change their name, are already facing difficulties.
In July, the team announced that it would ditch the “insensitive” Indians nickname for something more politically correct. They chose the Guardians as an alternative.
The Cleveland Indians changed their nickname to the Guardians last month, and now two Democratic lawmakers want Ohio high schools to follow that lead.
Reps. Adam Miller, D-Columbus, and Jessica Miranda, D-Forest Park, have introduced a resolution that encourages all state schools to retire the use of Native American mascots and to engage Native American groups as part of the process.
Calling the move a “disgrace,” former President Donald Trump blasted the decision by the Cleveland Indians to change their name to the “Guardians.”
“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, and I guarantee that the people who are most angry about it are the many Indians of our Country,” Trump said in a statement on Friday.
After years of haranguing by left-wing protestors, the Cleveland Indians have finally caved, and will change their team’s nickname.
The name change was announced in a two minute video narrated by Tom Hanks. The team will be called the Cleveland Guardians.
