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.

Fortunately, our Colorado House and Senate are not in session until after New Year's Day. Salazar has way too much time on his hands. He is the same jerk that a couple of years ago suggested that a rape victim was safer without a pistol and to vomit or urinate on the rapist.

these school chose Indians as their mascots because of the bravery shown by Indians during the Indian wars. even today most tribes celebrate their veterans as warriors, when they return for combat. DUH! this story reminds me of the South Park bunch when they set out to name a mascot that didn't offend some one, they came up with the "COWS" as their school mascot. LOL

The Washington Redskins' was the test, now (let's) implement the plan.  After awhile, these jerks are so easy to read.

Just another distraction and diversion to the larger agenda.  The fact is, Native America images and names were intended to honor the strength, courage, bravery, power and integrity of Native peoples.  As someone who is Native American, I find it offensive that the Democrats are trying to remove this honor.  By the way, they would have to rename a number of cities, towns, streams and creeks, etc. to be consistent with this effort.  What Jack Asses!

if you want to see some inclusive and sensitive treatment by the government with their socialized programs.....please just go to any indian reservation. I visited a "res" in Arizona.......and find me one of your liberal democrats that would want to live there, and believe me the last thing in the world that they are worrying about is what a school or nfl teams logo is. they are more concerned with the high rates of drugs and alcohol, the increasing rate of tuberculosis, school drop out rates and poverty. this shows that these political suites are more concerned about political correctness and politics than stark reality in the real world. once again the American people are being scammed by another liberal cause, which controls your life with more regulations, mandates...and just plane horseshit.

Only the liberals see this as a problem.  Again just a decoy  watch what the other hand is doing at all times.  This is just a debate to rival people.  If they defund schools  the people will be reacting.

Every time that I read this kind of crap I have to ask myself: 

1.  Is there no better way to address this?  It is ALWAYS the desire of Democrats to get press, not doing anything positive, just get into the  press.

2.  Don't those dumb SOB's who are driving this, have anything important to be addressing for AMERICAS - LEGAL AMERICANS....

OK, I BEING PART CHEROKEE AM OFFENDED BY YOU JOE.  WE WERE PART OF THE COUNTRY BEFORE YOU.  I AM VERY OFFENDED BY YOU BY NOT ALLOWING THIS BECAUSE YOU WANT TO STRIP THIS NATION OF ALL TRUE THINGS.

Every politician with the surname "Salazar" should be renamed "Sleazier"!  Remember Ken - -the transplant appointed to Department of Interior, by SOBARKA, who made the end-run around the court ruling that reopened drilling in the Gulf, after the (sabotage) BP drilling explosion?  They're ALL "bad apples", who hail from Mexico and should be sent back there; not deportation, but permanent exile.

This behavior of banning native Indian names is their way of saying they hate Indians and this is their way of getting rid of them. ban the mascots ban the talk of Native Indians it is the same as banning Indians,   The Democrats are the racists against Indians.     Same goes for Banning anyone who believes the bible  ...   Any one who supports the Bible or bible principles like Christians , like Chik fil-a, Like many in the tea party - democrats call them hateful because the Bible takes a stand on certain behaviors .  Believing in abiding by the constitution ... Democrats hate that.   proof is everywhere... If you disagree prove it otherwise...

JUST ANOTHER SCAM TO WASTE FEDERAL TAXPAYER MONEY AND MAKE LAW OFFICES WEALTHY...........THEY COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THE NATIVE AMERICAN COMMUNITY UNLESS IT'S A CASINO......

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.
