Traveler’s checks: Innocent names under attack

From Victor Davis Hanson at Townhall:

Recently, there were progressive calls at the University of Southern California to rename the school’s mascot, the white Andalusian horse “Traveler.” Members of the left thought that the mute animal’s name too closely resembled the name “Traveller,” the favorite horse of Confederate general and sudden demon of 2017 Robert E. Lee. More.

Reality check: This furore cannot stop on its own. It feeds on itself and requires ever more victims. Who knew Lee’s horse was named Traveller until SJWs started screaming about it? People must either start saying no or acknowledge our new masters, with ever more unbalanced demands.

      WTH is that supposed to be?

      Oh and he is appropriating the culture of the pirate too! Get him!

    Indeed. The antifa red guard that are swarming out of the university campuses will soon be baying for blood – very much like their hero’s the red guard of mao (the pig – may he rot in hell for eternity).

    Right. So ban all nouns starting with a “C” because they could be continued with “onfederate.”
    Will the madness never stop?

      What a bunch of silly unts!

    Easy fix for the horse – just add “Fellow” to its name, and the leftists will love it.

    CSA President Jefferson Davis had a dog named Traveler.

    And you’ll note the good General wrote in English and not that bastardized form invented by conman Webster to sell his so-called dictionaries!!!

    Wellington rode ‘Copenhagen’.
    Alexander rode ‘Bucephalus’.
    Grant rode ‘Cincinnati’.
    Seely rode ‘Warrior’.

    We’ve already had a President named after sex slave trader Mohammad’s horse. Can we demand he change his name, and any monument now or in the future bearing his name?
