Christian School Drops the Name “Crusaders”


For centuries, the Empire of Islam was expanded by lethal force at the expense largely of Christian lands. Not until Muslim forces entered the heartland of Europe were they stopped, at the very gates of Vienna. If they hadn’t been, European civilization would not exist.

Great civilizations like Egypt were lost forever in the Muslim conquests. Spain and Greece lived under Muslim rule for centuries. But there was a time when Christians, realizing that the best defense is a good offense, took the fight to the enemy: the Crusades.

Since 9/11, we have been asked to regard the Crusades with distaste. This is because liberal information gatekeepers have embraced hostile Islamic propaganda to advance their goal of turning us against ourselves. Anything we should take pride in, they will demand we be ashamed of. Consequently,

A Christian college in Wisconsin is dropping its “Crusaders” nickname after nearly 50 years, claiming the moniker has become outdated in a “more global society,” university officials told FoxNews.com.

Stay tuned for word on whether Iran will drop its support for Islamic terrorism due to our living in a “more global society.”

The name change was explicitly linked to the Muslim atrocities of September 11:

Maranatha Baptist University in Watertown and its Division III athletic teams have used the name since its founding in 1968. Matt Davis, the university’s executive vice president, said no complaints have been received by the school and stressed that it coincides with its name change from Maranatha Baptist College in December.

“But I also agree that times change and we understand that context changes,” Davis told FoxNews.com. “Our world has changed since 9/11 and we’ve become a more global society with the Internet.”

Fans of the New England Patriots be warned: if Redcoats ever fly a pair of jets into an office tower, the team will have to change its name to something less offensive.

Selecting the university’s next mascot will be a collaborative effort, Davis said, and the new name will be revealed during the spring semester.

Here’s a suggestion: why not the Maranatha Dhimmis?

Ibrahim Hooper of CAIR, a Hamas front group that serves Muslims the way the ACLU serves cultural Marxists, says “I welcome the spirit behind the change.”

Of course he does. Islam means submission.

One day these heroes may be deliberately forgotten too.

New Silicon Graffiti Video: ‘The Cold Civil War’

In 2007, author William Gibson wrote the phrase the “Cold Civil War” for one of his science fiction novels. That led blogger April Gavaza, also known as the “Hyacinth Girl,” as well as Mark Steyn to pick up on the concept a year later. But of course, as General McChrystal’s disastrous interview with Rolling Stone and his subsequent dismissal illustrates, the media isn’t just where wars are fought domestically, as we discuss in the latest edition of our Silicon Graffiti video blog
