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 Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
