Notre Dame Rejects Criticism of Leprechaun Mascot From Cancel Culture Mob

Notre Dame Rejects Criticism of Leprechaun Mascot From Cancel Culture Mob

“A heritage that we regard with respect, loyalty, and affection.”

It was only a matter of time before this happened. Are critics aware that the leprechaun is a type of fairy being? Doesn’t that somehow make it better? At any rate, the good news is that people are not folding to the mob.

The Federalist reports:

After Fighting Irish Fans Reject Poll Claiming Their Mascot Is ‘Offensive,’ Poll Results Disappear

Quality Logo Products, an Illinois-based logo printing company, garnered national attention this week when it unveiled a survey titled “The Most Offensive College Mascots In America.” But the survey quietly disappeared from the company’s website after a flood of criticism.

The poll results were previously available at this link. In addition to an “offensive mascots” section, Quality Logo Products asked respondents to note the “sexiest,” “unsexiest, “best and worst mascots,” and “creepiest mascots.”

1,266 people from ages 18 to 79 were polled, according to the company’s website. Most participants hailed from the South (474); 55.4 percent were male, 43.6 percent female, and 1 percent “non-binary.” Almost 11 percent were “bisexual,” 2.8 percent were “gay or lesbian,” and 1.1 percent “preferred not to say.” One hundred twenty-eight mascots were referenced, all from NCAA Division 1 football teams.

The poll results indicated participants found mascots from Florida State University, San Diego State University, the University of Hawaii at Manoa, University of Notre Dame, Oklahoma State University, West Virginia University, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Arizona State University, New Mexico State University, and University of Virginia to be “offensive.”

Notre Dame, which has a leprechaun mascot, swiftly fired back at Quality Logo. “Our symbols stand as celebratory representations of a genuine Irish heritage at Notre Dame,” the school said in a statement. “A heritage that we regard with respect, loyalty, and affection.”

Different kind of fairy, Mike…

Ah, more elite enlightened wypipo, whitesplaining to others about how they need to be offended at yet one more thing, even though they aren’t.

Where did they find college administrators with common sense, who are willing to stand up to the cancel culture mob? The college I last worked for hires their administrators based on their race, sex, and sexual preference. Among them, common sense is not so common.

    The same administrators that cancelled the Columbus Mural in the ND Main Building. It showed Chris presenting the Cross to pious natives.

    If the Catholic school actually believed in their religious mission then would they really feel guilty about hurt feelings?

I wonder if the snowflakes bashing my alma mater’s mascot bothered to ask the Seminole tribe of Florida about it? After all, they were on the team that designed the logo and they designed Osceola’s outfit as well as Renegade’s accessories. When there’s a Seminole student at FSU willing to portray Osceola, the rider is that student.

I know the lefts favorite pastime is pandering to and being offended on behalf of tiny slivers of the population but I wonder if they realize leprechauns make up 0% of the population in the entire world…ever.
