What A Maroon

This happened a few years ago with a reverend in Durham who found the Blue Devils an offensive nickname, but Mark Dice takes it to a new level.  You'd think that with everything else he's doing, what with fighting the Illuminati and the New World Order and all, he'd be too busy.  And apparently, for a guy who is highly impressed with his own research, he's been too busy to look up where the term Blue Devils come from.

It's from the First World War, and is the nickname of the Chasseurs Alpins, the mountain infantry of the French Army.

They say it takes all kinds, but sometimes, it takes all kinds of patience, too. Comparing the offense a nickname causes to the Holocaust is just sick.
