More ‘historic cleansing’ in California

A university in California removed a historical symbol from its campus Friday in an effort to be “more inclusive” after a years-long campaign by Native American community members argued the marker highlighted a period of racism in the state.

The El Camino Real Bell was removed from the University of California Santa Cruz after administrators had several discussions with members of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band and other community members who felt that the bell marker glorified a period of time when Spanish missionaries dehumanized their ancestors and culture and enslaved those who converted to Christianity.

    I’m Chumash on my fathers side. Talk about rape and murder, and enslaving of Native People’s. The Spaniards were notorious killers for the Cross. But it’s a shame to remove historical objects.

    A new law needs to be passed that makes “cultural destruction” a crime. Otherwise, where does this crap end?

    The “I’m a Datsun” tribal band, eh?

    What a colossal bunch of pussies.

    Maybe we need more historic cleansing in California. You know; remove every trace of the Liberal horde that invaded and destroyed the place…

    This is the “Four Olds” – China’s Cultural Revolution. Erasing all history to destroy our pride in our past and our accomplishments.

    The American version of the Taliban. Where would we be without them.

    UC Santa Cruz has historically been a Bastion of Loonism. I am just grateful that my Son went to UC Davis instead!

Play nice.
