week, Alvernia University, an ostensibly Catholic university in
Reading, Pennsylvania, announced it had scuttled its teams’ “Crusader”
mascot and removed the name and image of “Crusaders” from its various
team and university logos. More than just the most recent casualty in
the Islamic war against the West, this strikes at the very heart of
Judeo-Christian culture, namely, the Crusaders!
It is not too much to say that, but for those real “holy
the West would not be the West, and indeed we'd all be chanting Allahu
Akhbar five times a day with our rumps in the air and all the
(genitally mutilated) women at the back of the bus. Sorry, I meant the
Yes, Alvernia U. this week distinguished itself from the ranks of your
everyday, run-of-the-mill quislings and topped the charts in the
perfidy derby. Caving to pressure from the Muslim Students’ Association
(part and parcel of the Muslim Brotherhood), Alvernia removed all
references to the name and image of a “Crusader”. The replacement has
yet to appear, but we may all rest assured that it will be something
“diverse”, something “inclusive”, and above all something not
“troublesome” or “offensive” (which was how the Crusader mascot/logo
was characterized by Alvernia’s officials, for whom the great courage
of those knightly Crusaders might as well be entombed with their
bones). Of course, the replacement won't include any “Catholic” names.
Or “Christian”, or “Jewish”. No saints need apply, and as for anything
even vaguely smacking of “whiteness”, well...!
am girding my loins for battle! As soon as I find the fabled "girds."
Amazon does not carry them.
