The Pasty Face Maggot Pie                                     






One student at Miami University of Ohio wants a bar to change the name of a popular drink based off the school's old mascot.

In a letter to the editor published in the Miami Student , senior Anna Feldman calls on The Woods, known by students as “New Bar,” to change the name of the drink known as "the redskin.” Miami University of Ohio’s mascot was the Redskins until 1997, when controversy over the name caused the school to change the mascot to the Redhawks.

“If you are too emotionally unstable to order a cheap alcoholic drink at a bar and get so offended by the ‘violent past’ that the word promotes, then you are not prepared for the real world, moreover to be in an institution of higher learning,” one commenter wrote.
Now that we all know your drink name is offensive, I have no doubt you’ll take the swiftest action to rename it."    Tweet This

The open letter to the bar outlines the history of the term redskin, writing that the word had a negative connotation and was used to degrade Native Americans. Senior Anna Lucia Feldman, the author of the letter, writes that “the colonial government offered payment for the heads and scalps of Native Americans and redskins became slang for these scalps.”

“Now that we all know your drink name is offensive, I have no doubt you’ll take the swiftest action to rename it. I’ve taken the liberty to brainstorm some replacement name suggestions that will appeal to Miami students. You can take one of them, or even set up a voting contest for a new, less genocide-y name,” Feldman wrote. [FULL]

I could post 200 similar (and new) examples like this every week, which is the real story here.

"The MSM Rule of Inverse Electoral Correlation:
The closer the presidential race gets, the louder the MSM declares that it’s over. And all this comes even as Clinton has had a terrible week—arguably her worst week ever, as the billowing smoke of financial scandal clouds herself and her family."


#####
The world in chaos and in danger of economic disaster and we get a war on redskin? Offensive? What's the matter - don't they like potatoes?
What will these snowflakes do in the real world? Will they thrive, or retreat to momma's basement?

We need to condemn "A Midsummer Night's Dream" for the offensive Tom Snout having a chink.
