Wisconsin Proud to pass a law supporting Race Based Mascots!!!

Rep. David "haggis-hunter" Craig (R-Vernon) wants to make sure race based mascot names, now and in the future, proliferate and become just another proud fixture of our state image.

"Haggistani" Craig would make it almost impossible to ban an offensive mascot. "(It) violates the basic foundations of due process that our nation holds so dear."

Forget about the name, let's focus on due process…! "Bloody jock" Craig has a few supporters too, like "bog trotter" Shawn McNulty, Mukwonago's school superintendent, who defended the schools American Indian name by saying it “amounts to a guilty-until-proven-innocent policy that ‘hasn't been used since the Salem witch trials.’"

State Representative Steve "the Kraut" Nass, is another big supporter of racial mascots.

From this WISC coverage, watch Craig do his best "Fat Bastard" impression responding to the argument reversing the law would "set(s) an acceptable level of discrimination in state statute," putting the state into a tailspin:
"Talk about a tailspin this state has been in. The state was put in a tailspin when you all had the majority economically and otherwise."  


In a sad piece of press from NorthJersey.com:
DPI Superintendent Tony Evers said it wouldn't be proper to transfer name-change orders to the Department of Administration, which is controlled by the governor. He said no one would be able to meet the minimum signature requirement, allowing race-based mascots to remain in place forever.

Barbara Munson, an Oneida Indian who chairs the Wisconsin Indian Education Association's Indian Mascot and Logo Task Force, called the measure racist.

"That's terrible. That's anti-educational. It's racist," she said. "For 21 years I've avoided that term. But it's almost impossible to ... describe this particular action in any other way."
