Given the relatively recent demise of the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Indians, the Minnesota Vikings should be looking over their shoulder. Western Washington University (WWU), which also has a Viking mascot, is considering dropping it because it’s colonialist and white supremacist and all that, and if they do, the NFL team may soon afterward have to play as the Minnesota Football Team for a while. The College Fix reported Thursday that “Western Washington University may scrap its Viking mascot and is currently conducting an investigation to help make a final decision on the issue.

We should just number the teams or use the alphabet. Then libs "might" be happy. Probably not though cause they enjoy being totally miserable at all times.

Ok, so all the Vikings may have been White. So what. They lived in Scandanavia way nort where there were no people of color. That does not make Vikings racist. If you had to eliminate every team name with any ethnic connections based on their cultural origins, every, every male like Vikings, Indians, Patriots, Raiders, Buchanan's there will be no team names. Everyone is offended by everything these days.

Oh for the love of all that is holy, has everyone lost their freaking minds? Next they’ll come after the Browns. Yes, I know they’re named for Coach Paul Brown, but it does that really matter to ignorant snowflakes who are hell bent on destroying our culture? Think of the fake outrage they could manufacture on that one. Get your Cleveland Bipocs jerseys now, folks.

The anti-Colonialists seem to be suggesting that every group around the world should have just stayed where they were. In other words there should now be about 6 billion humans living in southern Africa where the human race began. There should have been no migration to the rest of the world where humans colonized. Why, we might still have mastodons in North America if the proto-Indians did not colonize the place. And look at the South Americans now colonizing our south-west. This is how stupid this whole thing is.

What is wrong with Vikings? They were the indigenous people from where ever they came from and were all White. The Many Black people/tribes were the indigenous people of parts of Africa. Many Arab type people may have been the indigenous people of Northern Africa and Middle East. Chinese/Japanese/Asian people were the indigenous peoples of Asian areas. All of these "Indigenous people " lived apart. Once they started to explore and meet each other, they discriminated against, fought against, killed, enslaved, conquered, and assimilated parts of the other cultures as their own. They all did this. Some groups were much more successful than others (probably the more advanced cultures). Today, the equity/Equality BIPOC Activists would like us all to believe that all indigenous people were all one with the earth and full of unicorns and butterflies. In reality, they were mostly just as savage and interested in cultural survival as the rest of them.

Probably the team is made up of 70% blacks what do they have to say? This is nonsense are the players on the team offended or protesting the white supremacy, probably not. All the confederate statues and one of Colombus were removed you think this would have satisfied the snowflakes but No. Let's just call all the teams the George Floyds with an assigned number see if that will be sufficient.

A day ago, Vice-President Kamala Harris sat down for a wide-ranging one-on-one interview with NBC’s Craig Melvin. Melvin asked Harris about the Biden administration's lack of progress in the fight against COVID-19. He inquired why they haven't updated guidelines on masks since public health officials acknowledge that cloth masks are not as effective as KN95s and N95s masks. Harris was also asked about Biden’s divisive rhetoric on the Voting Rights Bill during his speech in Atlanta and why the administration hasn’t been able to convince moderate Democrats to vote for their bill.

Supreme Court Does Joe Biden's Dirty Work

Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for companies with 100 or more employees officially went into effect on Monday and companies are scrambling to figure out how to force employees to comply. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court is sitting on its hands, refusing to rule, and compelling employers to enforce Biden’s totalitarian mandate. On December 15, 2021 a three-judge panel for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled that the lower Louisiana federal court only had the authority to block the mandate in the 14 states that had actually filed suit

There is a real possibility that the European Union (EU) will endure major fuel shortages this winter. Record-high electricity prices are currently the norm with no end in sight. Russian president Vladimir Putin astutely understands that the EU heavily relies on Russian natural gas, which the Nord Stream 1 and now 2 (NS2) natural gas pipeline will provide. This $11 billion line to the German coast spanning 764 miles under the Baltic Sea will double the capacity of Russian natural gas and be used as a geopolitical leverage point against Ukraine, Poland, NATO, the EU, and most of all Germany, the largest economy in the EU.

It started in Chicago, where an incredible 91% of union teachers voted to go on strike and refused to do what they get paid to do, which is teach. Then the union walkouts spread to Maryland, New Jersey and California. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a liberal Democrat, has attacked the Chicago teachers unions for "holding kids hostage." She is right. Why doesn't she call a state of emergency and disband the union to save the children from the union terrorists? Or tear up the contract because the unions have violated it? If she did, she would be a hero.

Most Americans today have a romanticized (and extraordinarily narrow) historical understanding of the conflict that we call the Civil War. In their imaginations, it goes something like this: With passions inflamed by a moral renaissance in the North regarding the institution of slavery in the South, the two sides decided to go to war over the issue. In the end, the evil South was righteously razed by the armies of the North, and thus, slavery was ended, and the former slaves made American citizens, as Abraham Lincoln intended.
There’s A Reason No One Likes Kamala Harris 38 replies

Most people look at the choice of Kamala Harris for Vice President and scratch their head. “Why would anyone pick a person so wildly devoid of political talent or even the basics of likability?” they wonder. The conventional wisdom is that she checked the right number of boxes to fulfill left-wing interest group demands, which is partially true, of course. Overlooked, however, is how there is one more, rather good and important reason Joe Biden, or really any politician, would pick someone like Harris: because by comparison, you’ll always look better. Harris is such a singularly grating personality that she polls lower than lemon juice on an open wound.

There were a lot of head-smacking moments during oral arguments before the Supreme Court regarding Joe Biden’s OSHA vaccine mandate for companies with more than 100 employees. Even though I know the left wing of the court is packed with totalitarians, it always takes my breath away to hear them opine about how the government should be allowed to exercise almost unlimited power over Americans, and their cavalier attitude about the rights of individuals. What I did not expect to hear was Ohio Solicitor General Ben Flowers—a Republican appointee—arguing before the court that the state essentially has unlimited power to force individuals to take a vaccination.

Reality used to be the Smithsonian’s prime directive. Now? They’re now building a new collection, but it’s not devoted to science, history, industry, or anything so unifying and uplifting.

Rather he simply meant to compare the actions of those who opposed reform with the likes of George Wallace and other notorious figures. The clean-up came after critics accused Biden of divisive rhetoric, and the president has since seen his initiative collapse as two hold-out Democratic senators said they could not support his plan to change Senate rules in order to pass the legislation.

Just over a year ago, millions of energized young people, women, voters of color and independents joined forces to send Joe Biden to the White House. But 12 months into his presidency, many describe a coalition in crisis. Leading voices across Biden’s diverse political base openly decry the slow pace of progress on key campaign promises. The frustration was especially pronounced this past week after Biden’s push for voting rights legislation effectively stalled, intensifying concerns in his party that fundamental democratic principles are at risk and reinforcing a broader sense that the president is faltering at a moment of historic consequence.
