NOTE: The following is a transcript of Todd’s morning radio commentary – heard daily on more than 800 stations.
Hello Americans. I’m Todd Starnes with news and commentary next.
Another iconic brand has fallen to the Cancel Culture Mob.
Mutual of Omaha – the insurance people – announced they will abandon their longtime logo to address racial equality and social justice.
The head of a Native American chief had been the logo of the company for 70 years.

James Blackledge – the chief executive officer – told Omaha.com the chief was a symbol of strength and respect. But the insurance company was using a symbol from another culture that was not theirs.
So their new logo is a lion – a nod to the company’s longtime sponsorship of Wild Kingdom. Remember Marlin Perkins? Jim Fowler?
The logo features a lion gazing forward to evoke the company’s role in looking out on the horizon. Mutual of Omaha also says the lion symbolizes safety for their customers.
Wait a minute. Lions are carnivores. They eat humans.
