It’s no secret that wild-eyed Leftists rule the roost on America’s college campuses.
College campuses have become cathedrals for the Church of Leftism.
And now the PC Police are trying to ban something they deem “offensive” that will make you laugh out loud.
Leftists are obsessed with political correctness.
It’s the weapon they use to force people to toe the party line.
A big political correctness movement was pushed in the late 1980s and early ‘90s, but it was ultimately beaten back by common sense.
However, Left-wing activists have waged a culture war, and political correctness is back with a vengeance.
It’s gotten so bad, several universities are fighting to have their own mascots banned because they’re not “woke.”
Innocuous mascots such as the University of Wyoming cowboy won’t be spared from the Left’s wrath.
Campus Reform reports:
In 2018, two dozen professors banded together to demand that the University of Wyoming cease the use of its marketing campaign slogan “the world needs more cowboys,” because, as one professor put it, “the word ‘cowboy’ invokes a white, macho, male, able-bodied, heterosexual, U.S.-born person.” The university stood its ground and continued use of the slogan, which turned out to be a success, generating a $38,000 increase in royalties over the previous year.
What’s even more absurd about the University of Wyoming example is that it exposes the Left’s undercover prejudice.
They believe the cowboy represents the so-called “toxic masculinity” that they’re trying so hard to eradicate from society.
And they immediately connect cowboys with whiteness, even though cowboys can be found in many countries, e.g. vaqueros in Latin America.
Other mascots in Liberals’ crosshairs are colonials, pioneers, and 49ers.
Activists at George Washington University are pushing to ban the colonial mascot because they claim he represents so-called “systemic oppression.”
The University of Denver is trying to phase out references to the school’s pioneer nickname.
Denver already retired its pioneer mascot, and the vacancy hasn’t been filled.
And at Cal State Long Beach, 49ers mascot Prospector Pete was dumped amid cries of the mascot being linked to the gold rush, which, according to campus Leftists, represents “a time in history when the indigenous peoples of California endured subjugation, violence, and threats of genocide.”
Leftists have proven there’s no line in the sand they won’t cross.
What’s your take?
Has the Left gone overboard by trying to ban college mascots?
