Dems Try to Kill Funding for Schools with Native American Mascots

Political correctness is apparently more important than educating children. At least that’s the message I take away from a Colorado Democrat’s plan to defund schools that have “unauthorized” mascots. Wielding the self-righteous tomahawk of political correctness, Democrat Joe Salazar has decided to leverage Colorado’s pawns kids as a bargaining chip in his effort to rid the world of “offensive” Native American mascots.


Under the Thornton legislator’s plan, schools will be required to seek permission from Native American tribes for their western-themed mascots, or go without any state funding. (On the bright side, I can now honestly say I’ve seen a Democrat propose a substantial cut to the state’s education spending.) Glossing over the fact that mascots are rarely chosen through malice (after all, no one is asking to use Salazar as a mascot), deciding to strip all K-12 funding because of a team name seems a little draconian.

Salazar has defended his school de-funding program, claiming it is necessary for an inclusive, and sensitive, public policy agenda. After all, we can’t have schools going around naming their teams after some noble piece of Western heritage… I mean, there’s a possibility that someone might get offended, right? Don’t we all have the right to never be offended? Isn’t that listed somewhere in the Bill of Rights, or something? (Seriously, I will pay handsomely for an effective sarcasm font.)

“Legislation doesn’t really change attitudes. Instead it changes behavior,”Salazar said. “You want to continue using your racist and your stereotypical imagery? Then we don’t have to fund that.”

Ok. I get it, Joe. Everyone’s racist (except you, apparently). But thank heavens you’re here to pull funding from our children’s schools because of some misguided belief that any mention of Native Americans is likely derogatory; that should straighten us out real quick.

Go ahead, you can trust the Govt. Just ask a Native American.

exactly

How about we kill the demoncrats and let the Native Americans decide about the rest

works for me.

it should be taken as a compliment, not derogatory in any way.  I love the native American, love their remembrances of their dances and drums. we went to Wisconsin and saw a native American show in a canyon,  it was wonderful. 

Yeah let the real American Indians decide what offends them. I personally feel that this P.c. Crap is meant to wipe out any kind of American history. It's the P.C. Bad white people history that they want to push. I feel that this P.C. Crap is a Trojan horse in information control. We can't undo the past, no one can, no country can but we can teach what we have learned from the past and use it not to punish present generations but to use it in what Not to do to each other.

This is all these gutless wonders can do!  They can't solve real problems; so, they have to create "real problems" from nothing and then pretend that they care about them and are doing something to solve them.  Such a farce and scam!  It is these political hacks in both parties that are killing this nation!

It won't  win them any favors with the FBI . Full blooded Indians . We / They know what happened in the past and now what is happening to the last vestige of America . I would like to see the tribes get really pissed of . Especially the ones that own casinos . Enough money there it could put a chink in the Democratic armor .

WHY.....? WHAT IS THE POINT......!!! PURE INSANITY......!!

Geeze I hate these political correct socialiest democrats.

I am offended by the fact that President Obama has put Islamist in power in this country and says that they contributed to our nation's beginnings. I am also offended by the religion of atheism that wants to take all talk of the bible and prayer out of our schools but are more than willing to allow the religion of atheism to be taught there. 

why just schools change the names of all the cities named after Indians. Where does this insanity stop

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
