Students at George Washington University in the nation’s capital are making a call for a cultural purge targeting the school’s own namesake.
Some progressive students are circulating a petition demanding that the school’s mascot and sports team name, the “Colonials,” be changed. The petition states that “the historically, negatively-charged figure of Colonials has too deep a connection to colonization and glorifies the act of systemic oppression.”
A GWU student senator named Amy Martin also called the “colonials” term “extremely offensive.”
GWU’s Student Association has called for a university referendum to answer the question, and it appears that said referendum will be voted upon by the student body next month.
American patriots throughout the history of the United States have recognized the colonists in question as the builders of America to whom a great debt is owed. Most colonists came to North America from the Old World when there was little to no urban civilization in the area, and struggled greatly to create cities, towns, roads and an entire society for the benefit of their children and grandchildren. Perhaps most significantly, they fought and won the War of Independence against the British imperialists, freeing what became the United States from the rule of a foreign king.
To replace them as the mascot of George Washington University, the creator of the petition(a GWU student named Rachel Yakobashvili) has suggested alternatives of either “hippos” or “riverhorses” for the school.
Because there’s nothing that can replace the void created in place of the American colonists after being purged like a large terrestrial animal native to distant countries like Botswana, right?
A competing petition has surfaced to push back on the attempted cultural purge of the progressive left, calling for the “Colonials” mascot name to be kept in place. The name was first adopted for the university’s sports teams in 1926.

Jussie Smollett Charged By Special Prosecutor For Chicago Hate Hoax
Smollett won’t get off the hook after all.
Chicago actor Jussie Smollett was charged by a Cook County special prosecutor with six counts of disorderly conduct related to lying to the police on Tuesday. Dan Webb, a former U.S attorney appointed by Judge Michael Toomin, announced the charges as the result of a grand jury investigation.
Smollett had appeared to escape criminal repercussions for a hoax he orchestrated of January 2019, in which he paid two Nigerian brothers to play the role of Trump supporters and “attack” him in a fake racially charged event. Smollett was originally charged by prosecutors with filing a fake police report, but evaded punishment when a suspect district attorney ordered the charges dropped on the basis of Smollett’s supposed community service.
But he won’t use his ‘get out of jail free’ card after all. Webb was appointed by Judge Toomin six months ago to investigate the circumstances surrounding the suspicious dropping of Smollett’s charges. In a statement, the special prosecutor explained his decision to file new criminal charges against Smollett for his orchestration of the hoax.
““The grand jury’s investigation revealed that Jussie Smollett planned and participated in a staged hate crime attack, and thereafter made numerous false statements to Chicago Police Department officers on multiple occasions, reporting a heinous hate crime that he, in fact, knew had not occurred.”
A statement from Smollett’s lawyers in light of the new criminal charges goes to show the former Empire actor isn’t thrilled that he’s going back to court to face accountability for his dishonest publicity stunt.
Smollett is set to appear in a Cook County courthouse on February 24th.
