    Wondering if Indian motorcycles will be next in this PC world?

    LOL!

    It used to be the entire woman kneeling. You could carve out her breasts then fold the box so her bare knees would stick through her boobs so it looked like she was exposed. Just saying...

    Whoa! Too much information!! I would expect the removal of that image here in Canada but not stateside. We have people bitching here that neighbourhoods should be renamed because so-in-so was a racist. Well back in the late 1800's and early 19009's when my now city was growing, the movers and shakers, politicians were by and large from the British Isles and primarily racists. That's just the way it was. Still is, just like every single person that walks this earth but with tongues bit - sometimes. When does this nonsense end?

    It's getting completely retarded.

    The people that want to "cancel." The short list. The first two make no F'n sense.

    Aunt Jemima
    Uncle Ben
    George Washington
    Thomas Jefferson
    Abraham Lincoln
    Teddy Roosevelt
    Any Confederate Soldier


    Then they have torn down some things I don't think they even understood. Like the statue of Col Heg in Wisconsin. He was a anti-slavery union soldier that fought to abolish slavery.


    Now recently I'm seeing some changes to things like a Master Bedroom..... Can't say master anymore.

    Or like ABL brings up no owners anymore of sports teams.




    Or what about that dumb arse that doesn't want Chief to be a rank. Says it could be offensive. But I'm guessing she didn't Google the origin before opening her trap.

    I was actually serious about the PC crowd going after Indian bikes.

    You never know what's next!

    Indian Motorcycle Company may be forced to change the name to Indigenous Motorcycle Company or First Nations Motorcycle Company. This is how stupid things are turning out now. What took the cake the other day was a photo on FB showing a defaced grey granite Fire Rescue monument for fallen fire fighters that had BLM spray painted on it. Those dickheads haven't a clue what they are doing except the act of defacement.

    Back in the 70's, there was a bumper sticker that stated, "If you don't like the police and you need help, call a hippie." Or how about this poster:

    Somehow the name Victory might be offensive to someone though.

    Yep, maybe Participant would be a less offensive name. We wouldn't want to offend the losers while riding our Victory.

    And the Victory line was reborn - wait, Victory has to have some racial connotations, after all it inherently claims supremacy of one thing over another (can't have that)!
