Univ of Maryland Scraps State Song Over Confederacy Ties

on

The University of Maryland has decided Maryland, My Maryland needs to go.

Starting immediately, the official song of the state of Maryland is banned.

Another day, another infuriating case of virtue signaling. Maryland, My Maryland is the state song of Maryland, but that didn’t stop the state university from banning it from their events. The song technically has nothing bad or racist in it. It was simply a pro-Confederate battle hymn and used the phrase ‘Northern scum.’ The University decided that in light of the events at Charlottesville, it would only be appropriate to pull the tune. How kind of them.

From CBS Baltimore:

University spokesperson Katie Lawson released the following statement:

“As part of the university’s efforts to reaffirm our values as a campus community, we are assessing the songs that are played at Intercollegiate Athletic events. We are suspending the playing of “Maryland, My Maryland” to evaluate if it is consistent with the values of our institution at this time.”

Everybody feels the necessity to virtue signal and it’s stupid.

In America today, everyone feels the need to virtue signal. For those of you that don’t know what that term means, here’s the basic definition. Virtue signaling means that you say certain things or do certain activities simply to show your moral character or virtue in light of a current event or fad. That is what you are seeing at all this new found hatred toward anything associated with the Confederacy. Does anyone realize that ALL these monuments, images, and songs existed before Charlottesville? All of this has been around a very long time.

The only reason everyone is freaking out right now is to appear ‘cool’ or ‘morally superior’. The same people tearing down crap all over the country weren’t doing anything a few weeks ago. It wasn’t cool then. There weren’t any cameras or reporters around. It would have been just doing work for a ’cause’ that you believed in. The song had played hundreds if not thousands of times on that campus. Why is it bad all of a sudden? Was it not bad over the previous decades? This is simply a case of the University of Maryland trying to prove that they are morally and racially above board. Instead, they’ve just shown their ignorance.
