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.
