Generation Trudeau: Vikings moniker represents “rape culture”?

David MenziesMission Specialist

There’s been a lot of heated debate about sports teams using “offensive” native-themed nicknames and logos but surely, there must be non-native nicknames and logos that are potentially triggering to someone, somewhere.

I head out to the University of Toronto campus to speak with members of Generation Trudeau to see if they think the Minnesota Vikings moniker should be banned considering the Viking connection to rape culture, among other offences.

DearGod!… Between what started out as “fun” assignments for Brian Menzies on our The Rebel, and Jesse Watters on FOX News many months ago, the evidently vacuous stupidity of our younger generation is now downright scary… And I would contend that this “dumbing down” has been deliberately caused over the years… I would also suggest for Brian’s next “streeter” to simply ask “What year was Canada founded?”…

" Everyone wants to be a ‘Social Justice Warrior’ ?—Are you sure about that Lotta ? I don’t want to be a SJW— Matter of Fact—-I can’t stand them. I guess that I owe it ALL to my Christian , Protestant upbringing and our ‘Work ethic’ . We have no use for Slavery or Slaves .

Lotta——-Do you feel Proud or Offended – when a sports team is called the Vikings ? I think it would be an honour Not a bloody insult.

I’m Danish on both me mother and father’s side so I’m about as pure viking as you’re ever going to get. I often joke about this too, mocking being offended by the stereo typical portrayal of Vikings. I’m not really offended and I don’t understand how others are so frail that they are for whatever group they are from.

I know indigenous Americans would say, well you’ve never been subjected to prejudice because of your heritage. That’s true, however do they really think that making these changes will change any of that in even the slightest. My thinking is it will probably make it worse.

When I see satire like this part of me worries that someone will pickup the banner and make it real. It’s just the kind of world we live in now that everyone wants to be a social justice warrior.

The education system has managed to destroy the millennial mind. It’s absolutely jaw dropping at how dumb and naive these kids really are.

I know what to do. We will just number the teams and how they finish in the standing will be their next year numbers. It might take u half the year to figure out when your team is playing and who they are playing against. But we have to stop hurting people feeling. PS Don’t forget your helmet. hammer head

The level of intellect of these Millennials is mind-numbing.
Stooopid is way above their pay-grade.
How about we call them the Minnesota Wahhabis ? lol

“Kids, you have NO freaking idea about reality and what’s really going on in the world, UNLESS you research it for yourself.
Look it all up while you still can, because the Obama Axis Power gave away the internet—he turned it over to “the world,” and, therefore, the criminal, murderous UN and its filthy, murderous client states and blood-cult “heroes.””

Interesting read . . .

Good segment Dave, shows that logical resistance to suggestive programming is at a low ebb in UofT as well as Ryerson.

@david Huston….Blew Jay is the past participle of Blow J….and yes it does sound gay…besides that both the team and the city they represent really do suck……:-)

Sure hope the new ADD-afflicted generation eventually finds value in learning about who we are and where we come from.

I had really hoped that the NEW generation of post-secondary students would be better educated than my generation was, and have some ingenious pro-active ideas for improving the world. Unfortunately, they appear to be sheep just like everyone else. Sad.

While they’re at it, they should also ban these names:
Edmonton “Eskimos” – not PC
Arizona “Cardinals” – means “Catholic leaders”, offensive to non-Catholics
Green Bay “Packers”, LA “Rams” – offensive to the Gay community
Cleveland “Browns” – offensive to brown people
New England “Patriots”, Washington “Nationals” – offensive to globalists
Carolina “Hurricanes”, Calgary “Flames”, Edmonton “Oilers” – triggers “climate change” worry
Columbus “Blue Jackets” – promotes police brutality
New Jersey “Devils” – tsk tsk
New York “Rangers” – anti-Mexican, Rangers patrol the US border w/Mexico
Dallas “Stars” – as in “Star of David”, offensive to Islam
Nashville “Predators” – anti-African American
Arizona “Coyotes” – coyotes are dogs which are Haram, anti-Islam
Los Angeles “Kings”, Kansas City “Royals” – imperialism, colonialism, insulting to First Nations
Oakland “Athletics” – fat-shaming

Shakespeare said, “What’s in a name? …a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”

They can either change the names to pacify Generation Snowflake, or not change the names and send Generation Snowflake to their safe spaces with trigger warnings.

As a United Empire Loyalist I have a bone to pick with the New England Patriots. Since when do rebels get to call themselves patriots? WE are the real patriots, and if they hate England so much why do they still call themselves New England? And who needs FOUR chances to get a first down? They shouldn’t be allowed to call that football, that’s just gay.

A redskin is also a peanut. Just change the emblem to a peanut.
