Chief Osceola is an outrage

January 21, 2014 

Where is the outrage from the media liberal elite's, the holier-than-thou University of Illinois chancellor and the NCAA regarding the presence and performance of Florida State University's Chief Osceola on his horse Renegade stabbing a flaming spear in the middle of the Rose Bowl?

Where is the outrage for not "banning" Florida State from post-season because of its use of Native American imagery in its symbol and mascot(s) as the NCAA had threatened other member schools?

And, finally, where is the outrage of every member of Illini Nation for allowing themselves to be totally duped and bullied by the NCAA and these other groups?

It is time to say enough is enough and demand Mascot equality!
