Thought Police Demand Stores Stop Selling Sombreros and Ponchos

When utopia has been achieved, white people will no longer be racist by wearing sombreros and ponchos during lighthearted celebrations (assuming there will be any white people in utopia). In the meantime, at the University of New Hampshire:

[A] student group known as “All Eyes on UNH” has released a set of demands, which includes calls for the “administration and town elected officials” to urge “local stores in Durham to stop carrying items like ponchos and sombreros for May 5 celebrations, and instead seek out alternative sources of revenue.”

The stores must stop selling these products because “cultural appropriation contributes to the growing acceptance of racism and xenophobia.”

Meanwhile, the list of demands also calls for the “creation of a campus-wide committee to prevent similar offenses in future years,” with another demand asking Greek-life leaders to “find other ways to celebrate the end of the academic year.”

I can just picture the committee:


Meetings of the Stamp Out Political Incorrectness Committee will surely be more fun than any Cinco de Mayo celebrations.

    Okay, I get it now…… Ha, ha….. you got me!

    It gets more and more silly as time goes on.

    Moonbattery? Great title for a website. You’re joking, right? Nobody, repeat nobody, could be so dumb as to believe this crap.
    For months… nay years, maybe…. I’ve been coming to this site and learning how crazy some Lefty-wefty libtards can be, but they’re not really that crazy…. it really is a joke, right? ‘Moonbattery’ is a spoof site.
    I’m correct… yes?

    People are not really that fuckin’ retarded are they? (excuse my French, but if there’s ever a time to curse and swear – this is it!)

    No, wait a minute…. I’ve experienced such retards myself… first hand.

    You really are not joking!

    I thought I’d just woken up from a crazy dream…..

    but I haven’t…… it’s real…..

    God help us all!

    Maybe it’s time to ban student groups, safe spaces, inclusivity committees, and those student student councils?

    Where was the outrage when people wore green on St. Patrick’s day? After all…we must be sensitive to the feelings of the Irish, too.

    Are they going to get ebay and Amazon to ban ponchos and sombreros too?

    Speaking of cultural appropriation… or, rather, inappropriate acculturation:
    Why do we have to listen to a bunch of Hispanic gobble-de-gook when we call a hospital or doctor office or utility, after the “Press 1 for English” nonsense? Why don’t they wait until the English-speaking Americans are notified of various phone options, first, before they rattle off the annoying instructions in Spanish? This seems deliberately calculated to annoy and harass English-speaking Americans.

    Making us sit through all that Spanish before we can choose the phone option to direct our call to the correct party is similar to the “egalitarian” nonsense of listing all the world’s countries “alphabetically,” with U.S. being near the bottom of the list, instead of STARTING with U.S. because WE invented the internet and most users of sites involved are *Americans* in the United States. Very annoying. UPS finally wised up and changed the location for U.S. on their countries list, putting it at the top instead of burying it under “U.” Time for other American agencies to put Americans first and stop tormenting us when we have to make repeated calls for something important and have to listen to a bunch of Spanish before we can connect to our desired party.

    Black people complain that black history month is the shortest month of the year. We Irish only get one day and does anyone spend that day studiously considering the sad history of the Irish people? Hell no. They dress up like leprechauns and get drunk.

  8. jeffunde says:

    Let’s solve this problem. Stop celebrating all diversity or heritage.

    urge “local stores in Durham to stop carrying items like ponchos and sombreros for May 5 celebrations, and instead seek out alternative sources of revenue.”

    I’ll bet they could recoup their losses by replacing those items with a nice selection of brown shirts.!-wehrt-euch!-kauft-nicht-bei-juden!-sa-uniform-boycott-of-jewish-shops-sturmabteilung.jpg

    One of the Eyes on UNH being the eye of Sauron.

  11. Mr. Freemarket says:

    The free market responds to market forces. If people want to buy ponchos and sombreros, they will buy them either from their local market, or, if necessary, from Amazon. If there is no market, stores will stop carrying them.

    It is time for students to receive an education.

  12. Mr. Freemarket says:

    While we are at it, one should ask these students why people keep selling drugs? After all, they are looking at serious prison time if they are caught.

  13. ICEvictim says:

    this crap will go on until we get rid of all the majors with the word “Studies” in them.

    The best way to do that is to get the feds out of student loans. When the kids and parents have to prove to the bank that the college degree will lead to a career that will pay back the loan, all the stupid will evaporate off the campuses.

  14. ICEvictim says:

    Party City will have to stop stocking them

  15. MAS says:

    Why you must be a capitalist pig to say something that makes as much sense as this. Speaking of pigs, they will fly long before the Marxists let go of education…

  16. ICEvictim says:

    ain’t that the truth MAS!

    Parasites need a host to survive.

  18. cieran58 says:

    If the stores are forced to stop selling ponchos and sombreros for Cinco de Mayo, perhaps they could sell Fritos–ah, fond memories…

  19. WRZ says:

    They better not come after the green beer sold on St. Patrick’s Day.

  21. James McEnanly says:

    Rather than celebrate a victorious battle in a war that had nothing to do with us, why not celebrate something Americans did, in the view of the whole world. alan Shepard flew on Freedom 7 on May 7, 1961.

    28 days straight of “we created peanut butter” is enough for me.
