The Great iCommieclastic Hysteria of 2017 jumps the shark

[D]uring a rally earlier this week to show solidarity in the aftermath of the violence in Charlottesville, Va., a USC campus group linked the name to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, whose favorite horse was Traveller. [NB: the USC mascot is spelled Traveler]

At the rally, … Saphia Jackson, co-director of the USC Black Student Assembly, asked students not to be quiet, and reminded that “white supremacy hits close to home” and referenced the name of the Trojans mascot. [story]

Never go full-Animal-House

(What? Well, yeah, mebbe it’d be less of a problem if it were a black stallion; but, somehow, I doubt it. Prob’ly have to be a mare or gelding.)

    Saphia Jackson, co-director of the USC Black Student Assembly,
    First, I wonder if Saphia’s parents knew she was being named pretty close to lesbian, or couldn’t they spell “Sophia”?
    Second, I don’t suppose she’s leading a group advocating black supremacy? Nah, she wouldn’t do that. She just wants more set asides and free shit.
    Where’s the White Student Assembly, or White Student Union?
    “That’s wascist!”
    The hypocrisy is galling.

    Everybody seems to be on a witch hunt these days. Even I found some.

    You’d think these dim-wits would love both Traveller and Traveler – after all, both were owned and had a master. Isn’t that what all this fake righteous anger is all about?
