Forbes reported on June 16, 2020 that the Minnesota Freedom Fund raised $30 million in donations in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death.
However, the non-profit received sharp criticism on June 16 after disclosing that it paid out $200,000 to help out agitators who ended up in jail. Such big spending has led to calls for more accountability about the non-profit’s spending habits.
In a series of Tweets, the organization tried to rationalize its actions:
“Without jeopardizing the safety of the folks we bailed out we paid well over $200k in the weeks since the uprising alone. We are working on doing more,” the non-profit Tweeted.

This fund was set up in 2016 and saw its reach expand in the wake of Floyd’s death on May 25 which kicked off national protests nationwide.
Celebrities, campaigners, and influencers were some of the notable figures who posted links to donate to the fund recently. The fund was overloaded with donations to the point that stopped requesting donations and asking that other people donate to other causes.
Critics complained about the fund not spending more and even suggested that some of the money go towards other causes or small businesses that were damaged in the community. Others defended the organization for setting up in the infrastructure to send out millions of dollars.
MFF latest addressed the concerns of critics in a follow-up series of tweets. They claimed that all bail related to the protests had already been handled.
Critics also took issue with the lack of “diversity” on the fund’s leadership.
Even when leftist organizations go out of their way to promote radical causes, such as undermining bail, the woke Left is still not satisfied.
It’s a death cult that only concerns itself with uprooting America’s social fabric.
Cleveland Indians are Joining in the PC Radicalism by Discussing a Name Change
Even Major League Baseball is not exempt from political correctness.
The Washington Post reported that the Cleveland Indians are in the process of changing their name after the Washington Redskins announced their decision to review a potential name change before the NFL’s 2020 season.
“We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and embrace our responsibility to advance social justice and equality,” the Indians declared in a statement. “Our organization fully recognizes our team name is among the most visible ways in which we connect with the community. We have had ongoing discussions organizationally on these issues. The recent unrest in our community and our country has only underscored the need for us to keep improving as an organization on issues of social justice.”

According to a report from The Athletic, the Indians leadership is expecting to discuss the matter with Native American leaders, fans, players, alumni, and staff within the organization before making a final name change.
The Washington Post pointed out that “The club de-emphasized its “Chief Wahoo” logo in 2016 in favor of the red ‘Block C’ logo.”
“We do have empathy for those who take issue with it,” Indians owner Paul Dolan commented about the logo in 2016. “We have minimized the use of it, and we’ll continue to do what we think is appropriate.”
In the 2018 season, “Chief Wahoo” was eliminated and the team no longer uses the logo.
The degree of cultural radicalism America is going through in 2020 is off the charts.
The Left is moving at breakneck speed in its efforts to transform America in every possible way, while most of the Right stays asleep.
