The Social Justice Warrior crusade is on the move.
They’re trying to erase any trace of American history that doesn’t fit their radical views.
But their latest target is the most absurd yet.
The SJW crusade unleashed their battle plans on California State University.
Leftist students demanded the university take down a statue of the school’s mascot, Prospector Pete statue and strip away mention of him on campus.
They claim Prospector Pete represents genocide toward indigenous Californians during the gold rush era.
And the school caved.
The Hill reports:
Officials at California State University, Long Beach, have ended the school’s use of its mascot, Prospector Pete, over concerns that the use of a settler-era mascot for the school was racially insensitive.
The school’s president, Jane Close Conoley, announced the end of the mascot’s use on Friday in a letter to students and alumni, citing a 2014 decision to begin moving away from the use of the “49er” and “prospector” imagery on its sports teams.
Prospector Pete’s true meaning is one of striking the gold of education.
It has nothing to do with genocide.
The SJW crusade has become violent in the name of so-called “tolerance.”
They have defaced and vandalized historic statues across the U.S. and destroyed the careers of many professors.
But Trump has revealed their future battle plans on Twitter:
…can't change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson – who's next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish! Also…

They won’t be satisfied until all mentions of America’s founders are wiped from the record books.
As George Orwell wrote in 1984:
“He who controls the past, controls the future. He who controls the present, controls the past.”
