The PC Police now want to cancel the fighting Irish mascot.


https://nypost.com/2021/08/25/notre-dame-leprechaun-considered-offensive-according-to-survey/



I have some Irish Catholic ancestors and honstly, let me say, it does not need to be cancelled.  Everyone just chill out and relax.  So stupid!!!!
745sticky, Augustiner, Bakeacake, D.L.Orean, Lazio, Mithras, Renma, Rye are losers who are blocked.  Good riddance to them. They will still be in Korea 10 years from now unless they are retired.  Either way, they will be poor since all they know how to do is troll rather than work for something more

I love how there's a giant picture of a woman holding a paper drawing of a leprechaun, over her head and the caption reads "A Notre Dame fan holds a leprechaun paper drawing over her head."

If a mascot — any mascot —  is offensive to anyone, it should be reconsidered,” said Jean, a 25-year-old actor. “A mascot is a silly thing but why hurt someone’s feelings?”
That's what that generation thinks.
It's part of being woke.
It's what an older generation criticize these days as being part of "cancel culture".
Life's to live! Live! Breathe. Relax. Enjoy. Animals teach us to focus on family, friends and avoid danger. Get what you need and get along with others. That said, some rock the boat, but they know capsizin' it means they're sunk. Some sink, let's swim! The sea's big, great, but has undercurrents.

As a member of the older generation I find the entire cancel culture stupid, silly, weak-minded and pathetic.

Having said that, I find Youppi offensive. It triggers me and I want it reconsidered.

It's offensive to me and I am someone. Just ask Speedy Muffler. :laugh:

It has been said Americans have opinions on any subject (Stephen Colbert used to have absurd questions asked on the street and answers were given).

I read the article quickly on my phone while out and about. Some good critical observations of it by posters here who researched the survey website. Good work.

The quote i posted stands as an opinion of a generation that didn't exist in my youth; to wit, no one would have said such a thing in 1982: if even one person is offended by it...

If they cancel the fighting irish Mascot, a line will have been crossed. this is my warning to you, woke mob.

actually, I come from Protestant Ulster stock, and I don't care for the Irish Republicans. but sometimes, something is bigger than political divides.

Your move, wokersters.

But why would they cancel the mascot? There hasn't been mention of it, from what I can tell.
 I mean...
"If they post photos of the Pope in a speedo, a line will be crossed. This is my warning to you, heathens!"

When the woke kids start running around like sissies saying something is offensive, the repeal and cancellation of it isn't far behind.  Their small but very loud voice will complain and complain and complain to get it cancelled.

Did any of you actually read the article? A sportswear company asked people to rank college mascots in order of their offensiveness. The entire premise of the survey puts the idea into respondents' heads that some mascots are offensive. The Notre Dame mascot ranked 4th.

NOBODY IS TRYING TO CANCEL THE NOTRE DAME MASCOT.

The survey is where it begins and snowballs from there.

Admit it. You're angry that Willie the Wildcat was ranked sexier than Sammy the Spartan. For you, that was when the line really got crossed.

Tell us what you're gonna do about it.

Well, he does look kind of average though doesn't he?

In that case, what do you think will happen as a consequence of the sexy mascot survey?

Wait till till the woke kids throw a temper tantrum on twitter and all over the place, it'll be lucky to crawl out alive.

Not related to this story.  But Billy did a good job hitting out at the woke kids.  (There aren't too many free speech Liberals like him around anymore.  Even though I disagree with him a lot, occasionally, he makes sense.)

I guess it depends on how their sexiness manifests itself. I mean Pepe Le Pew was cancelled for being a normalizer of rape culture.

Always fun to see the same people who wanted to cancel Harry Potter now crying about things being "cancelled" that nobody is trying to cancel. Let's just ignore all the things conservatives have boycotted for the last 50 years. Yup.

It has been said Americans have opinions on any subject
