Last year, MMA stalwart Conor McGregor announced that a piece of his profits from his Proper No. Twelve whiskey business would be donated to first responders around the world. Now, the first round of donations — at around $1 million — is going straight to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation in New York City. This will help pay off the mortgages of families of law enforcement and firefighters who died on duty.
According to the press release from The Mac Life,
The company is proud to announce it has selected the New York-headquartered Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to receive this $1 million donation for the United States. The donation will go towards paying off the mortgages for families of law enforcement officers and firefighters across the country, who were killed in the line of duty and left behind young children. Tunnel to Towers has a score of 100 for Accountability & Transparency on Charity Navigator. Additional donations will be announced in March and April for first responder organizations in Ireland, Canada, the UK, Australia, Russia, Poland and South Africa.
Additionally, McGregor sent out a public service announcement encouraging people to donate $11 to the foundation to help his cause out.
Additional donations are soon to be announced and will be allocated towards first responder organizations in Ireland, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Poland and South Africa in the upcoming months.
The Irish MMA superstar made an emphatic return after knocking out MMA veteran Donald Cerrone in less than a minute at UFC 246 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
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.
