So, I saw this in The Province: “The community spoke, and Simon Fraser University listened. The Clan is no more …
… [and] … The university officially retired its varsity athletics team name on Wednesday, after a poll of student athletes last year indicated a strong desire — nearly 90 per cent — for a name change … [when] … A social media campaign by many of the school’s student athletes, “I am not your Clansman,” had a massive response from the public … [and] … After the months-long process conducted by the athletics and recreation department, SFU president Andrew Petter decided to change.“
So, what can we learn from this?
Well, for a start, it is 100% clear that nearly 90% of SFU’s student-athletes are too bloody stupid to be in grammar school, much less in an accredited university.
Simon Fraser, the famous explorer, for whom the university was named, was a proud member of Clan Fraser. That’s why “The Clan” was chosen as a team name ~ a Scottish clan is a proud, noble and ferociously close-knit thing, It has nothing to do with some washed-up, sore-loser Americans and anyone who thinks it does is too damned ignorant to be allowed into a university.
The second thing we can learn is that Andrew Petter, the President of Simon Fraser University, is a miserable, craven coward who took the easy way out and collapsed in the face of a social media campaign rather than acting like a grown-up, a teacher, and a leader and correcting the stupid students who were themselves victims of an ongoing campaign by groups like Black Lives Matter who want to erase most of our ties to our past, however imperfect our past may have been.
It’s time to stop whining. It’s time to stop listening to then whiners. Our past is far from perfect ~ so, teach that, explain that, publicize that, but remember, please those who fail to learn from history are bound to repeat it. So, Dr Petter and Justin Trudeau and Chrystia Freeland and, and, and … get out of the way! Resign! Make way for real leaders who will stand up for Canada, warts and all. It’s time for a change … for a real change!
