CNN has been caught doctoring an old photo of Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden to remove a racist logo from the hat of his son.
CNN used a doctored photo of Joe Biden with one of his sons when he was young. The Washington Redskins logo, now deemed “racist” by the cultural Marxist mob, was Photoshopped off from his son’s hat. https://t.co/fMy0jiX8sr pic.twitter.com/IkFjK9kdWd

Previously, Biden had shared the photo in its undoctored format on Father’s Day. CNN felt that the depiction of the Washington Redskins logo might trigger their histrionic, unhinged viewer base of Democrats.

ESPN reported on how Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder caved to the mob, changing the name of the team after repeatedly vowing to fans that he never would do so:
Daniel Snyder endured decades of protests, lawsuits and emotional appeals over the nickname of his Washington NFL team. “We’ll never change the name,” he told USA Today in 2013. “It’s that simple. NEVER — you can use caps.”
Then, in a blinding rush this summer, the name long criticized by Native Americans and others was gone.
But the change didn’t feel sudden to the coalition of Native American groups that started working long ago to force Snyder’s hand by investing in the corporations that pay hundreds of millions of dollars for sponsorship deals.
Ultimately, their effort included more than 85 groups, including racial justice, environmental protection and religious organizations with $620 billion in assets that activists said helped tip the scales.
In 1999, the shipping company FedEx purchased the naming rights to the Washington team’s stadium for $205 million over 27 years. FedEx CEO Fred Smith became a minority owner of the team in 2003.
Even though she didn’t like what FedEx was doing, White invested some of Oneida’s money in FedEx stock, as did a small group of allies, including Steven Heim with Boston Common Asset Management. The goal, Heim said, was to build some sway as shareholders…
Shareholder pressure wasn’t the only force in play around the Washington team. District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser, for example, said in June that it would be difficult for the team to build a new stadium on government property unless it changed the name. And in July, the Washington Post reported that three minority owners of the Washington team, who together own 40%, were seeking to sell their stakes because they were “not happy being a partner” with Snyder. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement on July 3 that the league had been in communication with Snyder about changing the team name and was “supportive of this important step.”
… On July 13, the team announced it would “retire” both the name and mascot. But the burgundy and gold remains, and that worries Doxtator. “The fear of keeping the colors,” he said, “would be that a lot of the fans that have their old clothing and merchandise will fill the stadium with the old name and merchandise. And if that continues, next up is the old practices and chants and the culture-mocking continues.”
So the “long and tough” fight, as Fredericks calls it, continues. But it will be missing some of its leading voices. Heinonen, who retired from Mercy Investment Services in 2019, is in failing health, Zerega said.
However, at least there is one Redskins coach who has refused to bow to the mob, as Big League Politics reported:
Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio is refusing to bow down to a liberal Twitter mob demanding he retract his support of President Donald Trump, responding to an accusation of racism by telling an online assailant to “kiss my a**.”
Del Rio first shared a video from Twitter user @samanthamarika1 debunking left-wing claims that President Trump is racist.
When an online rando tried to lecture the longtime NFL coach for his supposed “racism” for supporting Trump, Del Rio hit back, telling the man to “kiss my a**.”
Del Rio had a ten-year playing career in the NFL, and has served stints as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Oakland Raiders. He’s perhaps one of the most notable NFL figures to defy a stifling left-wing oppressive culture washing over the league.
Not everyone is bowing to the left-wing mob, but the pressure is on for corporate entities to do so like never before. Fake news entities like CNN are driving this astroturfed movement to enforce political correctness.
