“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

The slow erasure of American culture

Long ago the sensitivity police forced Atlanta to get rid of Chief Knock-a-Homa, the beloved mascot of the Braves. Now they're after Chief Wahoo, the Cleveland Indian's cheerful cartoon mascot, ostensibly because the portrayal hurts the feelings of some Indians somewhere. Chief Wahoo will be replaced on the hat by a boring block "C".
Perhaps if the thought police, many of them at ESPN, cared about actual Indians rather than making themselves feel good by imposing their will on the harmless activities of others, real Indians could pull themselves out of poverty, addiction, and general dereliction long enough to not care about a harmless cartoon.
But PC moonbats don't care about actual people, as long as their authoritarian sanctimony is sated by forcing others to bend to their demands on self-righteous behalf of imaginary victims.
Every time you yield and inch to busy-body autocrats, they take another and another until there is no culture left, only gray hues of phony egalitarian sensitivity.

Hat tip to Moonbattery.
