HB 1356 panders to PC power brokers

It’s a solution in search of a problem.

Lawmakers in Olympia appear to be fast-tracking House Bill 1356, which would ban the use of “racially derogatory or discriminatory” American Indian mascots, logos and team names in public schools in the state.

Simply put, the bill is political theater, nonsense that kowtows to the politically correct crowd that’s bent on cancelling our culture, heritage and history. The bill is quickly moving through the Legislature even though I think it’s relatively easy to see there isn’t an “inappropriate use” of mascots or logos in our schools.
