Cal State Long Beach Delivers Bad News to Prospector Pete Mascot

Published

on

California State University, Long Beach is set to send Prospector Pete, the school’s mascot off into the sunset, retiring it forever. The reason why?

You can probably already guess it. It’s because of inclusivity. Yes, that’s right. Snowflakes aren’t too happy with Prospector Pete claiming it’s an offensive and non-inclusive mascot.

Political correctness is, once again, destroying things.

The school opted to replace the mascot after the university’s student group voted to retire the mascot and its corresponding statue. According to the student group, Prospector Pete “represents a time of genocide against indigenous people during the Gold Rush.”

The group first voted on the issue back in May and subsequently formed a committee on how to proceed without Prospector Pete.

In May, school spokesperson Jeff Bliss told KCBS-TV that the school wanted to examine its options, since the campus is on land previously occupied by indigenous people.

“We want to do something that gives a more comprehensive look at us as a campus and the land we’re on,” Bliss said.

CSULB President Jane Close Conoley issued a statement on the move, noting that inclusivity is a “core value” of the educational institution.

A statue of Prospector Pete is going to be moved from the campus quad to the new alumni center. A new mascot for the school has not yet been chosen.

Here’s what the school shared about the move on Twitter:

The school shared an update about the move on Twitter: “Preserving our history, and evolving our traditions to reflect what our campus is today and what it will be in the future. Prospector Pete will be retired as our mascot. #NewEra #GoBeach.”

Isn’t it tragic how much political correctness is destroying our nation’s heritage? People are losing their minds, becoming incensed and angry over the stupidest things.

These same kids will one day be running the country. Heaven help us.

US Embassy in Iraq Nearly Leveled by Rocket as Iran Tensions Soar

Mike Pompeo’s recent warning to US staff in the region is looking more prophetic by the minute.

Last week’s warning to US workers in Iraq could not have come a moment too soon, apparently. Due to increasingly hostile actions by the government of Iran, US officials last week demanded that non-essential American personnel leave the country of Iraq for feat that the regime in Tehran would soon launch a series of attacks.  As it turns out, this was far more prophetic than anyone could have imagined because, just days later, a rocket has nearly leveled the US Embassy in Baghdad. A rocket was fired into the Iraqi capital Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone, which houses government buildings and diplomatic missions, on Sunday night, falling near the U.S. Embassy but causing no casualties, the Iraqi military said. The attack came two weeks after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Iraqi leaders during a surprise visit to Baghdad that if they failed to keep in check Iran-backed militias, which are expanding their power in Iraq and now form part of its security apparatus, the United States would respond with force. His visit came after U.S. intelligence showed Iran-backed Shi’ite militias positioning rockets near bases housing U.S. forces, according to two Iraqi security sources. There have been no claims of responsibility as of yet for the attack. Saudi Arabian officials have linked two recent attacks on their oil industry to Iran; one aerial drone attack on an oil pipeline, and a sophisticated underwater attack using makeshift torpedoes that damaged four ships. US President Donald Trump is hoping to stay out of conflict with Iran, but has warned that any action taken by the US will be swift and stern.

Adam Schiff Predictably Pounces on Republican’s Call for Impeachment

While the tide may be turning in Congress, Nancy Pelosi continues to stonewall her own constituents.

Adam Schiff

As the dysfunction in DC reaches dire new heights, some who were previously loyal to President Trump have taken a turn. On the left, the idea of impeachment has been around since before Donald Trump even took office.  The simple fact that he was running for President was enough to have democrats working toward some sort of “back up plan” to oust him should he win. And when he did, the entirety of the left side of the aisle went up in flames. Now after two years of Trump in the Oval Office, the democrats are still trying to remove him, or nullify the results of the 2016 election by casting fears of Russian meddling into the public realm. One of the loudest voices in this anti-Presidential fracas has been Adam Schiff, who today latched onto a surprising republican call for impeachment. Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said his House of Representatives colleague Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) declaring President Donald Trump had engaged in “impeachable conduct” was courageous. Schiff said, “What the speaker has referred to and I have as well is can impeachment be successful in the Senate? We see no signs of that yet. I respect what Justin Amash is doing has said he showed more courage than any other Republican in the House or Senate. But what may be pushing us in the direction of impeachment in any event has less to do with Justin Amash but more the administration is engaging in a maximum obstructionism campaign.” Amash became the first prominent republican to publicly state his belief that Donald Trump has engaged in “impeachable” offenses. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has rebuked any and all talk of impeachment, furthering infuriating an already hysterical democratic base.
