Further, I’m from Minnesota. A state dominated by Swedes, Fins, Norwegians and the like. It’s who we are, don’tcha know?
And I’m proud that part of who I am has been chosen to represent the state’s football team. Who wouldn’t?
Leftist Libtards. That’s who.
The state of North Dakota is home to many people descendant from the Sioux nation. They are, rightfully, a proud people. A people of honor and who possess a rich and noble heritage. So why is the NDSU and the NCAA fighting so hard to take away that honor?
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A new state law that orders the University of North Dakota to keep its Fighting Sioux nickname won’t shield the school from penalties for continuing to use a moniker the NCAA considers hostile to American Indians, an NCAA executive told the school Tuesday.
The law, which says UND must use the nickname and a logo featuring the profile of an American Indian warrior, “cannot change the NCAA policy” against using American Indian nicknames, logos or mascots that are considered offensive, said Bernard Franklin, an NCAA executive vice president.
It’s insane. The Fighting Sioux is a name and logo steeped in tradition and respect. It carries with it the hope and aspirations of all the residents to emulate those characteristics associated with the Sioux warrior.
Serious, if we’re gonna ban the Sioux we should also ban the Vikings. And the Cowboys. And the Pirates, Raiders and Buccaneers. And just as soon as Mother Earth earns “human rights” we’ll have to ban the Lions, The Tigers and the Bears oh my! Not to mention the Eagles, The Falcons, The Seahawks, the Timberwolves and all other such mascots that were chosen for the POSITIVE traits they convey!
