California University Dumps ‘Offensive’ Mascot

Another mascot has been deemed too offensive for the current year.

A California university has done away with its mascot after years of outcry from student who denounced it as “offensive.”

“California State University’s campus in Long Beach is ditching its longtime mascot amid accusations of racism and officially moving to pick either a new symbol or have no mascot at all,” according to Fox News. “The university ditched its ‘Prospector Pete’ character in September after criticism that it was offensive to indigenous people.”

“Prospector Pete” was an ode to Gold Rush days, when gold prospectors headed to California in search of treasure. The school described the Gold Rush as “a time in history when the indigenous peoples of California endured subjugation, violence and threats of genocide.”

A statue of the mascot was moved to a less prominent place on campus last year after students complained.

Recently, another university removed its mascot after the social justice crowd leaned on the administration. George Washington University, whose mascot was George Washington and whose nickname was “The Colonials” was forced to stop honoring the nation’s first president. He is too racist for 2019.

Big League Politics reported:

A private university in Washington, D.C., is doing away with its mascot due to concerns about its “inclusivity.”

“The George Washington University student body voted Thursday to ‘remove and replace’ its mascot, the George the Colonial,” according to Campus Reform.

George the Colonial was obviously meant to depict Revolutionary War General and the first president of the United States, George Washington.

But a small minority of students at the university worried that the mascot was not sufficiently progressive, presumably due to the fact that Washington was a white man who owned slaves. Despite founding the greatest nation in the history of the planet, Washington’s fatal flaw was that he existed as an ordinary white male of his time.

Haley Margolis, a Student Association Senator, orchestrated a panel earlier this year called “Is the GW Colonial Inclusive School Spirit.” She reportedly told Campus Reform that “school spirit is something that should be based on equality.”

The far left will not stop until every trace of American history is sanitized.

SICK: University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis Believes There’s “Nothing Wrong” With Murder of Aaron Danielson

Why is he still teaching?

A University of Rhode Island professor argued that there is “nothing wrong” with the murder of Portland conservative demonstrator Jay Danielson last month on his personal blog. Danielson, a Patriot Prayer demonstator, was murdered by “100% ANTIFA” militant Michael Reinoehl. Reinoehl admitted to the murder shortly before being killed by US Marshals, who sought to apprehend the homicide suspect when he wielded an assault rifle.

Loomis,who identifies himself as a historian on Twitter, rebutted an argument citing that Reinoehl admitted to murdering Danielson. On a blog comment, he wrote, “he killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective.

He went on to elaborate in his defense of the murder in a later blog comment.

Yes, sometimes violence is necessary, say to avoid greater physical harm, i.e. self-defense, or to defeat a literal army of fascists who are trying to kill people. But, ideologically, I think the idea that violence is good if it’s against our political enemies is a core part of fascism, and so the ideological opposition to that idea should be its opposite – that violence as a general rule is bad, unless the specific context of that situation requires a violent response.

Reinoehl laid in wait in a Portland parking lot to ambush and murder Aaron Danielson during a Patriot Prayer caravan through the city, chambering a handgun before he even approached Danielson. He was charged with second-degree murder in the killing, although his death at the hands of law enforcement serving his arrest warrant ensures he won’t face a trial for his actions.

Loomis has gone on to accost anyone who challenges his endorsement of the murder as a “fascist.”

Sick, violent leftist.
