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.

Harvard Graduate Loses Job After Threatening to Stab Anyone Who Says ‘All Lives Matter’ on TikTok
Claira Janover thought she was above cancel culture.
Harvard graduate Claira Janover said that she wanted to stab anyone who says “All Lives Matter” in a TikTok video, and now she is paying the price as a result.
“Standing up for Black Lives Matter put me in a place online to be seen by millions of people,” a lachrymose Janover said in another video posted on Wednesday afternoon. “The job that I’d worked really hard to get and meant a lot to me has called me and fired me because of everything.”
According to Janover’s LinkedIn account, she worked at the UK-based firm Deloitte as an “incoming government and public business service analyst.” She was relieved from her position, as she learns that cancel culture doesn’t just apply to those on the Right who make controversial statements these days.
In her video, Janover complained that she was fired from Deloitte “even though they claim to stand against systematic bias, racism and unequal treatment.” She felt that this ought to give her carte blanche to say racist and hateful things against white people.
Janover decried “the nerve, the sheer entitled caucasity to say ‘All Lives Matter’” in the infamous video that garnered so much attention and controversy.
“I’ma stab you,” the Connecticut resident said in the post, as she zoomed in tightly on her own face.
She added: “I’ma stab you, and while you’re struggling and bleeding out, I’ma show you my paper cut and say, ‘My cut matters, too.’”
In typical liberal fashion, she has refused to take any responsibility for her actions and is instead choosing to blame Trump supporters for being enraged by her hateful, racist comments.
“Trump supporters took my job away from me,” she said in a different video posted on Wednesday. “I have gotten death threats, rape threats, violent threats. It was OK, but now my future’s entirely compromised because Trump supporters have decided to come for my life.”
“I’m too strong for you. I’m too strong for any of you ‘All Lives Matter,’ racist Trump supporters,” she added. “It sucks. But it doesn’t suck as much as systemic racism. And I’m not going to stop using my platform to advocate for it.”
Janover also demonstrated her extreme lack of professionalism by bashing her former employer for refusing to tolerate her ignorant and violent comments.
“I’m sorry, Deloitte, that you can’t see that,” she said. “That you were cowardice [sic] enough to fight somebody who’s going to make an indelible change in the world and is going to have an impact.”
This little snowflake has learned the hard way that she does not have as much liberal female privilege as she thought she had.
