U of Wyoming Refuses to Bow to Outrage Mob (VIDEO)

Posted at 7:30 pm on March 13, 2019 by Amelia Hamilton
The University of Wyoming wants to celebrate “hard work, self-reliance, and integrity” so they created a new marketing campaign that celebrated those things- “the world needs more cowboys.” Considering the mascot for the University of Wyoming is the cowboys, this has a double meaning that makes perfect sense.

Here’s one of the original ads:

Of course, some people took offense, because that’s what academia does. The University didn’t back down, and it’s paying off.







The Wall Street Journal reported royalties were up $38,000 as the school licensed almost 150 new products with the popular slogan, according to Campus Reform. The ad is also working for recruiting new students. 18,000 people who viewed the video gave their information to college recruiters and spokesman Chad Baldwin says “it’s pretty clear there’s been an increase in interest” although enrollment numbers aren’t out yet.

Campus Reform Correspondent and UW student Jessie Leach joined Fox & Friends Tuesday morning to discuss it further.


Wyoming Republican Representative Liz Cheney also supports the university. S “The world does need more Cowboys,” Cheney told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Cowboys and cowgirls embody the no-nonsense, never-back-down grit at the heart of our Wyoming heritage.”

With outrage culture replacing academics and real-life skills on college campuses, is it any wonder people are excited about a message of “cowboy up?”

Thank goodness there’s somebody left who won’t bow to the outrage mob. There’s a reason their motto is “bucking the system since 1886.”

I saw the ad. It wasn't even controversial, and it made sure to hit a few political-correct touchpoints. (e.g. Said "every" gender, when everyone knows there are only 2) Not sure how even the liberals got upset at it. I guess they whine at anything...

Here's the specific Leftist bitching from the original article:

She continued. “I am not the only person for whom the word ‘cowboy’ invokes a white, macho, male, able-bodied, heterosexual, U.S.-born person. The history of cowboys, of course, is much more diverse than that racially, and presumably also for sexual orientation. But the image — what the word ‘cowboy’ means off the top of almost everybody’s head in the U.S. — is the white, heterosexual male.:



Seriously, just STFU. G-dam Leftist worms.

No one should be surprised the leftist got all fake offended and felt the need to peddle their fake outrage.

They can't stand it when people tell them to take their warped leftist agenda and shove it sideways.

I guess they’d lose their minds (too late?) if the school played this on the Jumbotron at their games (dumb song, but if it pisses the libs off...)

Cowboys are definitely not pansies. Call one "dude" and you might be eating thru a straw for a while

If you put a progressive in a room with a glass of water on the table, they would figure out a way that the glass of water was somehow oppressing them and needed to be removed.

You're probably right.

That young lady they interviewed was great. I loved it when she said everybody wants to be part of the newest outrage, and a few professors there wanted a bite of that apple.

The glass of water would intimidate them because water, just sitting inanimately, is much more useful and has so much more to offer the world than any progressive!
