    Getting Rid of Indian Symbols

    Coloradosun.com

    There's no end to the cancel culture. I look for the renaming of roads, schools, towns and counties to be renamed with all this nonsense.

    For whatever reason the URL won't copy correctly.

    Faced with a new state law requiring the elimination of most American Indian mascots, a handful of Colorado schools are delving into their histories and having community-wide discussions about what a nickname, mascot or logo should represent.

    Is there nothing else that needs to be addressed in CO? I mean seriously, this is a priority? According to whom?

    And most tribes don't really care.

    The left won't be happy till football teams have names like

    The Strawberries
    The Keylimers
    The Sonatas
    Polkadots


    Stop the vaccine mandates. Use facts about constitutional freedoms. The 1905 SCOTUS ruling is obsolete. New technologies can provide for public safety AND protect the constitutional freedoms of those who refuse the vax. Use of easily disproven fearmongering antivax porn will kill our chances to stop the mandates.

    I don't think it should be called cancel culture, think it should be called replacement culture, they cancel people, Fire them, then replace them, ,same with statues, symbols and everything else these Marxists can get ahold of. I keep going back to this, everything points to a Communist takeover. I call Marxist Takeover, maybe I'm wrong but sure as hell looks that way to me

    This might surprise some of you, but white people were in North America first.

    They could always adopt Glorious-Mao and the Comrades.

    There's definitely some evidence to suggest "white people" got here several times as visitors before the EurAsian man walked across the Bearing Straights, and even a few times thereafter but their settlements died out or were absorbed by "the natives" over time.

    Imagine the look on Columbus' face or those of the settlers who first tried and failed at Jamestown if they'd walked off the boats to be met by Blue/Grey Eyed Nordic looking Europeans instead of the almost "natives" who did come to meet/greet them. HA!
