Actual Hawaiian comments on politically correct “Hawaiian Day” at South Dakota university

Rob ShimshockRebel Contributor

The student bar association at the University of South Dakota's law school were forced to change their Hawaiian Day party to Beach Day party. And then, they came for the leis.

Hawaii state Republican Rep. Bob McDermott responded: “Someone in South Dakota has their head stuck in a snowbank.”

When you think of it, other cultures move to N. America but we are the ones that have to stop practicing our historically social, religious and cultural practices so we don’t offend them.

These types of ‘restrictions’ and ‘redefinitons’ are intentionally created to simply to evoke hostility between groups of society, eg. Saul Alinsky.
If a seed of suspicion or doubt is planted, then it will create a distrust for people not part of that particular culture or background.
What better way to create hate and resentment if groups think they are being mocked.

I absolutely love it when the fragile people of America are offended and outraged over whatever they drag out from their bag of outrage and malcontent. All leftists have such a bag. It’s what they use to excuse the misery and failure of their own wretched lives.

Why should we live our lives to placate SJW PC complainers who look for an offence under every rock they see.

Cultural appropriation? Oh where to begin! The US navy created the T-shirt; Canada invented the attaché case, and since no one thought of putting handles on luggage a Canadian thought of that. Potatoes were appropriated from Chile; fireworks and black powder from China.

Blue jeans came from North America along with sports such as basket ball, football, baseball, hotdog, soap opera TV, movies, poutine; demolition derby; ice cream cone; baseballl caps; rock and roll; blues; chewing gum; sky diving, and so on.

Greek theatre gave us the necktie. China gave us pasta (believe it or not). Poland gave us vodka. Do we tell women (or now men) not to wear lipstick because it is appropriation from ancient Egyptian prostitutes?

If we look close enough – naw, just open our eyes – most things in this world have been appropriated from one people or another. So what is the big deal? Do we tell Japanese to stop singing rock and roll? Do we tell most of the world to stop wearing T-shirts? Do we tell women in Asia not to wear mini-skirts? Do we tell people around the world to stop appropriating Western culture?

We are always told to embrace other cultures, especially since they have imitated hours, so why is it so offensive especially for us, especially white people, to do likewise?

Toga party anyone?
