    So yesterday at Turners Falls High School, superintendent Michael Sullivan agreed to speak with a room full of upset students who wanted to know why he and the School Committee were changing the school mascot from the Indians before the residents of Gill and Montague had a chance to vote on it. For the record, Michael Sullivan has zero ties to the community. He’s a professional climber and a carpetbagger who wanted an administration job but couldn’t get one where he was from. So he’s basically gone into a community he knows nothing about, gotten rid of their traditions, and given into a bunch of social just warrior fruitcakes who don’t even live in the district. If you wanna know what a grown man who has no idea what he’s talking about looks like in front of a room full of informed children, then watch this Facebook Live:

    That face you make when kids are asking you legitimate questions but you don’t know how to tell them that you’re choosing to side with social justice warriors from Colrain instead of them:

    Dude is completely lost. And his reasoning was basically that since this was a “civil rights issue” the it shouldn’t be decided be a majority vote, because apparently the majority of people in town are against civil rights. Ya know, because Americans in general are implicitly racist. After all, it’s not like Americans have ever come together to overwhelmingly elect a black man President twice in a row. That’s never happened. And everyone knows that Gill and Montague, which vote overwhelmingly democrat in every single election, are hot beds for conservatives and racists.

    He pointed out that we did not desegregate the army by majority vote. Except if the desegregation of the army had been put to a referendum vote, it most certainly would’ve passed overwhelmingly. You need only look at public opinion polls about civil rights during the civil rights era to figure that out:

    Stupid facts!!

    He also said that gay marriage was only legalized because the courts legalized it. According to his direct quote in this video, “When I was younger I would’ve thought it would be the stupidest thing ever.”

    Except he’s wrong again. According to the Pew Research Center American popular opinion on gay marriage changed dramatically from 2001-2016, and in 2011 there were more Americans who favored gay marriage than opposed it:

    Screen Shot 2017-02-16 at 2.51.17 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-16 at 2.51.06 PM

    That’s what I like to call the Modern Family and/or Macklemore effect.

    But the SCOTUS legalized gay marriage in all 50 states in 2015 – four years AFTER it was clear that a plurality of Americans wanted this to happen. So his whole argument that we need government entities to rule on “civil rights issues” because the majority can’t be trusted to make the right decision, is completely baseless. In United States history the evidence is clear – government entities rule on civil rights issues only AFTER it has become apparent that this is the will of the majority.

    Then he said perhaps the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard:

    “All of our students should feel comfortable regardless of how the majority feels. That we don’t perpetuate a system of stereotypes and prejudices, which is what happens when you take a group of real people, not fictitious people like Cowboys, and you stereotype them.”

    Wait….what? Cowboys were fictitious? A guy in charge of a regional school district believes that Cowboys are on the same level as the Tooth Fairy?

    I didn't know!!
    I didn’t know!!

    He also told them that he couldn’t find Indians locally who were not offended by it. Except the Census Bureau has made it quite clear that the vast majority of indigenous people do not care about Indian mascots in high schools. Ya know, because they have that whole pipeline thing that’s slightly more important than policing a harmless mascot for a high school in Montague.

    Then he said that “a lot of the people who want it changed live in our community.” And one kid yells out, “Colrain???!!!” Clearly someone has been reading their Turtleboy. Because most people who spoke out against this issue do not live in Gill or Montague. One of the most vocal was actually from Boston, and was clearly a white woman pretending to be Native American:

    Some people in the comments have insisted that this chick is Nipmuc. They tell us that she “goes to tribal meetings.” I don’t give a shit where she goes. This is a white chick:

    Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 1.41.27 PM

    I could go to a Nipmuc meeting next week if I wanted to. Anyone can say they’re Native American and you don’t have to provide any proof. Just ask Senator Warren.

    Plus, the whole basis of claiming a minority status, is that minorities have historically been discriminated against based on their physical appearances. Well, not one person has EVER looked at this chick and thought she was anything except white. Therefore, it’s impossible for her to be a victim of discrimination.

    Of course the shadiest part about this was the point brought up by one of the students – they held the meeting during senior night for the basketball team. So lots of kids who wanted to, particularly athletes and cheerleaders who would be most affected by this, didn’t get to go an voice their opinions. Gee, I wonder why? Oh yea, because a bunch of SJW adults wanted to mute children in order to push their misguided agenda.

    Everyone in the comments of the Facebook Live agreed except for these dolts:

    Screen Shot 2017-02-16 at 2.29.27 PM

    The majority doesn’t get to decide on civil rights? Except as we showed above, the majority can always be trusted to decide on civil rights in America.

    Screen Shot 2017-02-16 at 2.30.06 PM

    Wait….they let this nudnik teach children history? She’s obviously not even remotely familiar with American history. And any teacher who wastes time brainwashing kids with buzzwords like “implicit racism” shouldn’t be allowed to stand in front of a classroom.  Does she even live in town?

    Screen Shot 2017-02-16 at 3.09.43 PM

    Northampton. Shocking. But apparently she used to teach there, and unlike the kids on the basketball team, she got to attend the meeting where they voted to change the mascot:

    Then there’s this genius:

    Screen Shot 2017-02-16 at 2.31.53 PM

    Turns out she’s just a student, but look where Mom works:

    Screen Shot 2017-02-16 at 3.15.14 PM

    Hampshire College, AKA “Snowflake U.” Obviously Mom is brainwashing her daughter with buzzwords, because normal high school kids don’t lecture their peers about the “difference between racism and bigotry.” As if that has anything to do with anything. Even Superintendent Sullivan is confused by that one:

    Anyway, it’s over. Bad guys win. You can’t fight City Hall. Make sure you vote next time. In the meantime, just keep calling yourselves the Indians and double down by wearing the headdress to every single game. They won’t let you vote, but they can’t stop you from using your first amendment rights to free speech. And if you’re gonna choose a new mascot, make this your choice:

    Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 1.59.03 PM

    That’s the scariest mascot I’ve ever seen. The Turners Falls Sellouts. Because that’s what leadership in Gill and Montague is. A bunch of sellouts.

      Kids are too smart now, many know exactly what’s going on with this.

    2. ZephyrCat


      That’s why I’ve always hated politics. It is the scummiest profession. Good people don’t get called to do it. Good people run from it. It has nothing to do with what’s right, only what’s in it for me as a politician. It attracts sleaze like a magnet. It’s a black hole that removes light and replaces it with soulless, vacuous purveyors of evil. I don’t even know why I read this shit except if you leave these fuckers to their own devices then they’ll have no opposition. Keep at Turtlebretheren.

    3. Runs with scissors


      Just for the sake of sharing fun facts, the Nipmuc are not a federally recognized tribe, they are only recognized in Massachusetts which essentially means nothing. For example, when they try to intervene in court cases they have no tribal standing. So her affiliation to that tribe means precisely nothing.

      Power to the students for calling the tool to task. I went to a high school where the mascot is the Warrior and people who have no business in town are currently trying to change it. You bet my battle cry will be heard all the way in the bowels of the Woo if they make any headway with it.

      1. Archie


        While the Nipmuc are not federally recognized, they are known for their creamy-smooth full bustlines.

        1. Devils Mouthpiece


          No hairy nipples please. Reminds me of the unclean masses of SJW.

    4. Lt Dan


      Leftist strategy: death by 1,000 paper cuts

    5. tngsucks


      With the statue as its mascot, they could be called the turtle riders.

    6. Franklin County is Full of Fakes


      Great idea: change the mascot to Harambe, the legendary gorilla.
      Instead of war whoops/tomahawk chops, let the kids beat on their chests
      and make gorilla noises. Or will the SJW’s claim it’s insulting to Gorilla Culture?

    7. LLC


      As if she wasn’t revolting enough, she tosses in arm hair an inch thick.

    8. Lincolntf


      If they renamed the team the Turners Falls “Sputtering Bureaucrats”, I know at least one guy who would be offended.

      1. Vinnie Brothers


        Or how about the Turners Falls Festering Munts? Nice ring to it…….

    9. Troubled Nostrils


      I watched the video. This is enraging for me, and I don’t get that way very often. Sullivan is a de-nutted spineless sack of fucking shit, a waste of food and air. Those kids are smart – they know they’ve been railroaded. Sullivan can’t even begin to defend his actions because his reasoning is as hollow as a cavern. What a fucking shithead tool!

      This is yet another example of why Trump won. Keep it up, you SJW assholes – keep on with this bullshit.

    10. EasilyOffended


      Converse Middle School in Palmer, MA is known as the Converse Cougars. I think they should change their name as this is an offensive term used to describe middle age women that like to have intercourse with younger men.

    11. Hrad


      The Army was desegregated by Executive Order in 1948. Not sure how your citation of an opinion poll from1964 has anything to do with it.

    12. Liz


      omg do you know that Turners Falls was named after Captain Turner who proudly murdered hundreds of Natives!?! So yeah there are not many to any tribes left in that region because they been wiped out but no what ever be angry that you mascot was taken away because that is way more important

    13. Sacagawea


      Maybe THEY (snowflakes) are racist, and THEY don’t want a Native American (aka Indian) as their mascot because THEY are prejudice and don’t like Native American Indians (see how it can go both ways?) Personally, I think the original intent of choosing the Indian as a mascot for many schools or sports teams is the same as choosing lions, bears, eagles, or bobcats. To represent fearlessness, beauty, and strength. The Indian mascot represents fearless native pioneers of our country. I consider it a tribute.

    14. TB Is a Moron


      Nice try trying to sound intellectual, Turtle Boy. However, citing an opinion poll from AFTER an act is passed proves nothing. Anyone who knows anything about history knows that passing legislation sways people’s opinions… just like changing this mascot/logo will inevitably cause a shift in the perception of it in years to come. I love that you mock people who care about this issue but don’t live in the town… where do you live, exactly?
