|Oppressive 'white' tiger|
Fragile flake muffins at Louisiana State University's School of Victimhood and Whining have started an online petition urging the school's management to change its "Tigers" mascot, claiming it's the symbol of "white oppression."
The petition has thus far attracted 450 low-functioning victims. They say the mascot was chosen by "powerful white males" with big bulging muscles coming from their arms, just above their elbows, and it's in tribute to "a Confederate regiment called Louisiana Tigers" who were "known for their propensity for violence on and off the battlefield."
And violence has no place in war, they claimed.
As a way to continue finishing the job that former President Obama began of dividing the country by color, sexual orientation and religion, the petition reads: "Louisiana State University named their mascot the Tigers, and they named it during the height of Jim Crow South. This was a time when black men feared for their lives, and were treated as sub human. This symbol is the most prevalent confederate symbol in the United States."
The petition's author claims the mascot is "incredibly insulting" for African Americans because they have to "attend a school that honors Confederate militantism [which is not a real word]."
I agree that the Democrats' Jim Crow Laws sucked, much like students who refuse to allow conservatives, (as opposed to confederates) speak on campus without shouting them down or creating a violent, destructive atmosphere.
But this is just an example of the "Offense Nazis" looking for something to be offended over.
"It is already hard enough to be black at LSU, and these symbols must be changed." [Because taking down the traditional school mascot will make it easier to be black on campus?]
The mentally challenged student gave another reason the tiger mascot ought to be changed: "It's also cruel to cage a wild animal for the amusement of privileged white people. They've never been in a cage!" [Ending the sentence with a Donald Trump exclamation point is brilliant!]
How does the author know so much about white people? He or she or whatever gender it goes by, is not white. If it is white, then how does it know how hard it is to be black at LSU. However, I will henceforth refer to the author as 'it.'
You can't have it both ways, it.
The anger it seems to have toward white people is as racist as it claims white people have for it.
According to it's petition, the history of the mascot shows that it's racist towards black people and is, in fact, a "symbol of white oppression" that should be "torn down [in abject rage]."
Now comes the bullpucks: "We must speak truth to power, and continue to march toward justice. That day is coming, the day when every symbol of white oppression is torn down," it wrote.
Many people weren't fooled and saw the petition as the toilet paper it represented.
"This is getting f***ing ridiculous! The past Is the past. LSU has been the tigers since its inception," wrote Charlotte Read.
"This is the most f**king ignorant thing I have ever heard of! You people are never happy!" said another post.
So it responded to criticism with this short, semi- illiterate reply:
"People are posting this in defiance, and posting many things which shows there [sic] racism. It's these actions that let me know I'm doing the right thing. Thank you for your support," it wrote.
This is an example of how our educational institutions have gone the way of the commode. Where everything offends those who are seeking to be offended in order to feel self-important.
Yes, we are marching to that sunset where every man, woman, lesbian, gay, transgender, queer, confused, and gender neutral person can walk arm-in- arm and perhaps other body parts touching, walking in glory and love.
Hal, Lee, Lou, yeah!
