Joe Biden continues to feed the woke mob.
They hate American society and want to destroy it.
Now Biden is even trying to destroy one of the biggest professional sports teams because of “racism.”
The Atlanta Braves are the defending World Series champions. And they are once again in the hunt for a championship, having clinched a playoff spot this year.
To celebrate their title last year, they visited the White House and President Biden, as is the tradition for all major sports teams who win championships.
Normally when this happens the President welcomes the team with open arms, praises them for their success, and treats them as honored guests.
But President Biden did the opposite to satisfy the woke mob – he went on the attack against the team that was visiting him.
You see, the Braves are named after Native American warriors. It is not a disrespectful or demeaning name. It actually portrays these warriors as being courageous and strong.
As silly as it was for the Washington Redskins to change their name, it is far easier to make the case that Redskins is offensive than it is to make the case for Braves.
But that hasn’t stopped the woke mob from demanding that they change their name. And Biden, through his secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, went on the attack as they visited the White House.
When asked about changing the name, Jean-Pierre said, “We believe that it’s important to have this conversation. And Native American and Indigenous voices, they should be at the center of this conversation.”
It’s a lot of woke mumbo-jumbo, but the implication is clear – she wants the Braves to change their name.
The silly part about her statement is that “Native American and Indigenous voices” have never been at the “center of this conversation” – the conversation has been centered around screechy white progressives, who have used Native Americans as props for their agenda.
The real Native Americans who live on reservations? They have much bigger economic issues to worry about than the name of the Atlanta Braves. They are facing a lack of jobs and opportunity and a devastating opioid crisis.
Upper-class white progressives, however, grew up with silver spoons in their mouths and have never had to worry about such things in their lives.
That’s why they have the time on their hands to worry about things like the name of a professional sports team.
This is the M.O. of elite progressives across America. They pretend to care about the downtrodden and the dispossessed, but it’s really just a narcissistic attempt to manicure their social image.
One can only hope that the Braves will stand strong and refuse to change their name. But unfortunately, the track record in baseball is not great.
The Cleveland Indians, who also did not have an offensive name in any way, changed their name to the utterly generic and awful “Cleveland Guardians.”
Compared to football, baseball tends to have a bit more of an upper-class white progressive culture. So sadly, the odds are at some point the woke mob is going to win this fight.
