Turners Falls High School won the Western MA Championship in football this year, but it’s not stopping the superintendent and a mob of SJW’s from attacking the coach and star quarterback for being “racist.”

There’s a PC shitstorm brewing up in one of Turtleboy’s favorite places – Turners Falls. Their high school mascot has always been the Indians. However, a year or two ago some SJW’s from Greenfield moved into town and started lobbying the School Committee to change the name because as white people, they get to decide what is and isn’t offensive to indigenous peoples.
In 2009 the School Committee voted to ban the “tomahawk chant” done by Turners Falls fans, which is also chanted by the Atlanta Braves, Kansas City Chiefs, and most famously the Florida State Seminoles:
But there’s nothing specifically written in the handbook that bars anyone from doing this. It’s also a little something called “free speech.” And there’s nothing social justice warriors hate more than free speech.
Anyway, Turners Falls had one hell of a football season. They went 10-0 and won the Western MA, D4 championship, before losing to Maynard in the State Semifinal. But it was their meaningless (yes, Thanksgiving games are meaningless unless you’re the 40 year old guy at the Blarney reminiscing about the glory days) 36-0 thrashing over Greenfield on Thanksgiving that caused SJW’s to lose their minds once again. That’s because not only did the kids on the football team do the tomahawk chant, one of the water boys came out in a headdress:
It’s almost as if they were celebrating a holiday in which Indians and white people broke bread and had a nice little meal together. For the record, the superintendent and principal both knew a headdress would be worn and did nothing to stop it because it’s not a violation of any school rules. But that didn’t stop superintendent Michael Sullivan from denouncing it at a recent School Committee meeting, while passing off blame on the hardworking teachers and coaches at the school:
“The wearing of the headdress (by the team water boys) and the public display of the chop and chant by the football team on this particular occasion, in the middle of a district review of the Indian logo/mascot, was clearly intended to send a message, a message many have found to be insensitive, offensive, and provocative.”
You’re right, it was intended to send a message. A message that this particular community was not going to allow itself to be bullied into submission by a bunch of white, politically correct, granola eating Greenfield nudniks. If you found that “insensitive” or “offensive” then that’s on you. It’s not everyone else’s job to cater to your hypersensitive white feelings.
“On behalf of the district I wish to apologize to those who were offended by the actions of some of the district’s students and the poor judgment of some of our staff.”
Wait….what? He’s blaming the staff now? Dude, you readily admitted that you knew they were wearing headdresses at the game, and at the pep rally the night before, and you ALLOWED them to do it. But now that it’s gotten some bad press from the SJW controlled Greenfield Recorder you’re blaming the students and the staff? What a dooshnozzle.
Newsflash – no one was really offended. Sure, some white people claimed to be. But they’re not. They’re just looking to bully a bunch of kids into adhering to their twisted PC worldview.
“Speaking for the district, I would like to state clearly that the performance of the chop and/or chant by any school teams, clubs, or groups is unacceptable and all staff in charge of such groups will be reminded of the school committee’s policy on this matter and their obligation to abide by it.”
Fuck your stupid policy. This is America, and if people want to do a tomahawk chant then they have every right to. I’d love to see someone challenge this clearly unconstitutional policy in court.
“Moving forward, this event has shown that, should the Indian logo/mascot remain, the district will need to develop clearer related policies, rules, and expectations. Another, perhaps more important lesson here is that we have significant work to do in educating our students in the areas of multicultural and diversity education, regardless of any change in the logo/mascot.”
Sounds like someone’s about to spend taxpayer money on some diversity training!! What’s Joyce McNickles and Keesha Latulippe doing next week? That’s cash money right there!!
As you can imagine this gutless superintendent has given into an angry mob of non-tax paying SJW’s once again. When coach Chris Lapointe heard his players doing the chant he told them to cut it out, which they did. Nevertheless he has become a target of the “love trumps hate” patrol:
Lapointe said he has been inundated with emails labeling him as a “racist,” and saying things like he is raising racist babies. He said he woke up one morning to 43 messages, many of them criticizing him over something he did not direct. In fact, the abuse has been so bad that Lapointe became emotional while we spoke about it on Sunday afternoon.
“It’s been horrible,” he said. “I get messages from people saying that I’m a child who doesn’t take responsibility for his actions, things like that. Honestly, if I screwed up, I would take responsibility.”
Do you need any more proof about who the bad guys are? Our useless attorney general has set up a hotline you can call when people say mean things to you on the Internet. Of course the only type of calls they actually take seriously are ones involving incidents where social justice warriors are allegedly the victims, and not the aggressors.
But make no mistake about it – they have a monopoly on bullying. They are the undisputed bad guys. And you need look no further than the way a white guy from Northfield (which is NOT in the Gill-Montague Regional School District) named Bruce Kahn spoke about Turners Falls star player Tionne Brown, who is biracial.
Here’s what Tionne had to say about getting in trouble after his team did the tomahawk chant:
“It’s been tough; I feel like we didn’t really get to experience the success of our season and Turkey Day,” Turners senior quarterback Tionne Brown said. “As soon as we got back to school after Thanksgiving break, (administrators) were on us. It’s kind of tough to enjoy it with all that is going on.”
“One of the things that has irritated me the most is people being called racists,” Brown explained. “I’ve never experienced any racism. … It’s really sad what’s happened to Coach. We’ve gotten pretty close over the years, and it’s been tough hearing some of the things said about him. He’s just a great coach. I didn’t expect this to spiral out of control.”
Seems like a perfectly reasonable thing to say. A nice kid defending his obviously very capable coach who just led them to an 11-1 season and a Western MA championship. But Bruce Kahn decided to take this opportunity to call this biracial high school student a racist:
Keep in mind, Bruce Kahn is 1,000% white, while Tionne is an actual person of color. But Bruce Kahn is the one who gets to decide what is and isn’t racist. Because there’s nothing racist about that!! He wasn’t done shitting on the kid either:
Keep in mind, this is all coming from a man who had a Facebook profile picture of several busts of himself staring at a naked picture of himself, complete with fully exposed buttocks:
This is the guy who gets to decide what is and isn’t racist. Makes sense.
The funniest part about this is that Native American groups have been lobbying the school district to NOT change the mascot from the Indians:
But that’s just because she hasn’t check her Dakota Sioux privilege. Only white people from Northfield and Greenfield get to decide what you should be offended by.
