Isn`t this political correctness gone mad ? I get the fury about the "Redskins" debacle, even though I couldn`t for the life of me understand quite how it was offensive but, the Viking logo ? How can that be remotely offensive to anybody ? Seriously stupid.

To understand it, you have to realize that American progressives view western civilization as an inherent bad that needs to be torn down.

Vikings, as European travelers who came to the new word once upon a time, are then cast as a symbol of the expansion of western civ.

Thus, for the crazies, they gotta go.

I’m trying to figure out what is wrong with the things you stated above? You seem to hate the environment, equality, hugs, equal pay, free college and rainbows and unicorns .
Why?

Well, the environment is awesome, but modern environmentalism is unhinged climate hysteria that wants to destroy human civilization.

Equality of opportunity is great. Modern progressives favor equality of outcome (or… you know… communism).

Equal pay ticks a lot of people off because the idea that the pay is unequal is largely a misnomer.

There is no such thing as free college.

Rainbows are the symbol of one of the most militantly intolerant groups in the US.

Unicorns are just lame.

True the environment is awesome but climate change is FACT the only thing you are wrong about is that it isn’t unhinged environmentalists that want to destroy the human civilization it’s just the environment.

Equal opportunity is great as well but spouting far fringe ideologies and claiming ‘progressives’ are all of these ideology is communism. Did I use that word correctly or misuse it like you did?

Equal pay is a misnomer if you ignore all facts and statistics.

There are free colleges in the US and other parts of the world.

I’m not a religious person but you sure did go after churches there. Wow. I mean calling churches ‘ the most militantly intolerant groups in the US’. I mean your mother is gonna have words with you. Maybe churches should rethink their Rainbow symbol.

You didn’t give your stance on Hugs? Probably some liberal agenda thing or something like that. Communism or maybe nazisim? Marxism? Capitalism if you charge for them? Socialism if they are free?

Thank you for being so on brand as a Canadian.

You sir are welcome. I would be American but we won the War of 1812.
Side piece of trivia. The Unicorn is the National animal of Scotland. I won’t tell them what you said about Unicorns.
Some Americans might interpret your War of 1812 claim as fighting words lol

If you want to see a good interpretation of the term ‘Red’(which is a derogatory term for natives) watch the original Disney Peter Pan movie during the Indian scenes. This will give you all the info you need.

I think I DID say I understood the Redskin controversy, I just cannot see where the Viking logo was offensive. I even read recently that up until the 1960s, Australian Aboriginies came under the flora and fauna act of Australia, tecnically classing them as animals ! , now THAT is disgusting.

My bad I must have read it wrong. I thought you said you didn’t understand the ‘Redskin’ references.

"PurpleFailureNation"?
Minnesota WAS a nice place to visit not anymore. Ever since that weird looking woman failed Minneapolis I don't visit anymore. But then again we have Milwaukee so we can't talk about failed cities. This whole nation is failing sadly.

My favorite place in Minnesota is Frostbite Falls.

If the Vikings' name changes, it won't be for a long time. But I'll never say never.

The two teams who might be next in line for a name change though (in the NFL) are the Chiefs and 49ers. Based on how things have been going, it's only a matter of time before the Chiefs are forced to abandon their name. It won't happen immediately, but as a society, I think we are heading down a path where names at all associated with American Indians will be considered unacceptable. Thus, I expect the Braves to change at some point too.

As for the 49ers, I'm surprised the name hasn't come under more criticism. I've seen a few pieces here and there arguing for a name change, but not too much. I suspect that's because most people are ignorant of what the actual "forty-niners" did in California. They effectively perpetrated a genocide against the Native inhabitants and basically enslaved many of the survivors. Not a great record. So I could see San Francisco coming under pressure someday too.
Geez you'd think in the politically correct capital of the world this would have been fixed by now.

FWIW I hate this stuff. How many people are really, really offended? These are mascots, not political statements. It's silly, IMO.

We live in a time when if two people out of 100,000 are offended by something, we must react.

Sad, but that's where we're at.

Fortunately, the pendulum swings both ways, and in time will self-correct.

Schools even let kids protest freely allowing them to miss class, wonder around campus, and make demands like fat heads with no purpose in life.

But if 50,000 out of 100,000 are offended, then they just have to eat it.
