Like the Taliban, ISIS or assorted communist regimes throughout history, the intolerant SJW jihadists who have infested the nation’s campuses have claimed another victim.
This time it was another team mascot that was deemed to be a symbol of racism and intolerance and (groan) genocide and the mob has successfully bullied administrators at Cal State Long Beach to tear down the statue of Prospector Pete as well as to erase him from history.
It was a bleak day in the university’s history and since it was founded by then California Governor Earl Warren who later became the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, the school went on to be hailed for its tolerance and diversity.
Until now when the fanatics have taken charge.
California University Dumps ‘Offensive’ Mascot https://t.co/SY8RFPyAJS

Via Big League Politics, “California University Dumps ‘Offensive’ Mascot”:
A California university has done away with its mascot after years of outcry from student who denounced it as “offensive.”
“California State University’s campus in Long Beach is ditching its longtime mascot amid accusations of racism and officially moving to pick either a new symbol or have no mascot at all,” according to Fox News. “The university ditched its ‘Prospector Pete’ character in September after criticism that it was offensive to indigenous people.”
“Prospector Pete” was an ode to Gold Rush days, when gold prospectors headed to California in search of treasure. The school described the Gold Rush as “a time in history when the indigenous peoples of California endured subjugation, violence and threats of genocide.”
A statue of the mascot was moved to a less prominent place on campus last year after students complained.
The mob wins again and sooner or later, it won’t only be statues and mascots that they will be coming after. It will be any American who doesn’t bow to their extremism.
