New York University’s new mascot is a mascot of its former glory

NEW YORK — A New York university mascot that used to represent the university that made him was replaced with a mascot whose most famous quote is “I want to kill you all.”

According to a new story in the New York Post, New York’s university will rename its mascot “Punjabi Bulldog” to reflect the university’s history of anti-Semitic and racist propaganda.

“I am happy to announce that our mascot is Punjabi-bulldog,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement released on Tuesday.

“I am thrilled to have our mascot and all of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors embrace our city and the many great things that make New York so special.”

The move comes as university leaders have faced mounting pressure to address anti-Semitism and racial discrimination on campus.

A few months ago, the university announced that the new mascot would be named “Pray for Israel” in honor of the Jewish state.

The mascot was first unveiled in 2009 and was named after the university and a former campus assembly, the New-York Historical Society, where the Bulldog would sit.

In a statement, the school said it is grateful to the Bulldogs for being the inspiration for the name.

“This name is a fitting tribute to the great work that the Bulldogs have done to support the Jewish community,” the statement read.

“We look forward to working with the BullDog family on a new mascot in the coming months.”
