To build the new utopian America, first the old America must be completely extirpated. That means erasing our heroes and cultural icons, so that they won’t remind us of who we used to be. Consequently, frontiersman Daniel Boone is now deemed offensive:
Is a cartoon-like college mascot reminiscent of Daniel Boone — right down to the legendary coonskin cap — racist, sexist or otherwise offensive?
Officials at the University of Denver seem to think so. They’ve announced they won’t reinstate “Denver Boone,” who was retired in 1998 as mascot for the UD Pioneers, despite calls to bring him back. …
“Boone was a polarizing figure that did not reflect the growing diversity of the UD community, but rather was an image that many women, persons of color, international students and faculty members found difficult to relate to as defining the pioneering spirit,” Chancellor Robert Coombe said in a March letter to the school community.
Numerous Facebook postings by students who wanted Daniel Boone back were ignored by PC educrats.
“It was really about moving forward,” Theresa Mueller, a spokeswoman for the University of Denver, told FoxNews.com.
Moving forward toward what? What kind of future does a society have if it lets itself be ruled by people who find it offensive?
Davy Crockett will be next to get airbrushed out of our culture; after all, he racistly shot Mexicans at the Alamo. Not long after will follow the Founding Fathers.
