|TUDENTS AT THE University of Mississippi are campaigning to make Admiral Ackbar from "Return of the Jedi" the school's new mascot.|
The school banished its old mascot Old Reb, an elderly Southern gentleman in Confederate garb, because of "negative connotations of the old South".
If the Rebel Alliance had the same backbone as these radical multiculturalists, Vader and Palpatine would have conquered the galaxy without even having to build a Deathstar.
Frankly, there is no pleasing these malcontents.
If you have a minority mascot, those with too much time on their hands throw hissy fits.
If you have a White mascot that is anything other than a milksop on par with Al Franken's Stuart from Saturday Night Live, they throw a hissy fits.
Once they select Admiral Ackbar, let's see how long that lasts before they cave to the demands of the Islamosupremacists for finding the character offensive.
For the ignorant out there, the word "Ackbar" looks in Latin script (an alphabet also soon likely to be abolished since it is used to formulate the languages of most Eurocentric cultures) to the Jihadist battle cry of "Allah Akbar" and, most likely as in the case of Judaism, shellfish are deemed ceremonially unclean in this faith as well. Admiral Ackbar is essentially nothing other than a giant talking shrimp or lobster.
Those irritating and useless as to their levels of erudition will squeal like little school girls, since they clearly can't be real men, that the two words are nothing alike.
Since when has a good terrorist ever let that get in the way of a bombing or riot?
Some will no doubt remember when Burger King altered a logo simply because it looked too similar to an Islamic symbol and banks across Europe have stopped giving children piggy banks out of fear of offending their Levantine overlords.
About the only mascot that perfectly captures the spirit of leftist academia these days is the Nothing referenced in "The Neverending Story" since that is the amount of freedoms we'll have left once the interests of every conceivable ethnicity with the exception of the White race is pandered to in the end.
