In news so terrifying and astounding in Current Year that it totally overshadows the minor lone wolf incident in New York, as well as the lone wolf incident in Las Vegas, the latter of which because it targeted largely white people shouldn’t even be a law enforcement priority (black people do not get any media coverage at all when even ONE of them, an unarmed teen, is gunned down by the police, muss less when 58 of them are), a racist pumpkin attack was leveled at Indigenous Students of Color in Canada at the University of Alberta.
This is clearly beyond the pale (no pun intended).
It is Current Year, for god’s sake. How much longer are vulnerable populations going to be expected to endure vicious extreme attacks such as this? Students interviewed IMMEDIATELY responded that they did not feel “safe.” How could ANYONE feel safe when confronted by a pumpkin such as this? Progressives are very strong and bold and courageous and empowered but some attacks are simply so overwhelming as to make us cringe and recoil! Pumpkins pose such an existential threat that if this were left outside of a jewish student center, certainly exactly 6 million of the jewish students would be saying that this was like another Holocaust!
The perpetrators of this horrid violent attack need to be identified, shamed, made to apologize and grovel, and then destroyed anyway! There can be no reprieve nor parole for anyone involved in this type of sadistic and terrifying racist assault!
