From AP, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
HINESBURG, Vt. -- The Crusaders of Champlain Valley Union High are now history.
The School Board in the Vermont community is selecting a new nickname and mascot for the school.
The Islamic world has criticized the Crusades.
Yes, and I have criticized Islamic jihads, but I don't see that compelling any jihad terrorists to pack it in. This is just part of the larger campaign to make the West ashamed of its own culture and history -- the easier to subvert it. The West has nothing to apologize for in the Crusades, as I explain in my forthcoming book The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades).
And closer to home, some people object to a knight bearing a crucifix as the symbol for a public school.
The image makeover will be implemented in time for the next school year.
Redhawks, Bobcats and Red Wolves are all in the running for Union High's new nickname.
I, Freakin Batman, have a suggestion: Cringin' Dhimmis. The Champlain Valley Union High Cringin' Dhimmis. How about it, School Board members? The mascot could be a little guy with a wide yellow belt and no shoes, head down, obsequious grin on his face. What do you think?
