Indian Communities Choose Redskins for Athletic Mascot

This shouldn’t surprise anyone who isn’t gullible in the extreme. Via Laura Ingraham:

A comprehensive review from 2013 shows that the United States is home to 62 high schools that have the Redskins as their athletic mascot. The majority of the students at three of those schools — or about five percent of them — are Native American. The Washington Post sent an intrepid reporter briefly beyond the Beltway to find out what could possibly motivate students, parents, coaches and school officials at one of the schools: Red Mesa High School in the rural, isolated corner of northeastern Arizona [i.e., Navaho country]. Turns out it’s simple: They like their mascot just fine. “I don’t find it derogatory,” school district superintendent Tommie Yazzie told the Post. “It’s a source of pride.”

Of course it is. No one ever named a team after something contemptible. Imagine naming a team the Moonbats or the Community Organizers — or worse yet, the Sanctimonious Liberal Phonies Who Advance Their Authoritarian Agenda by Pretending to Be Offended on Behalf of Indians.

Washington Redskins
A salute to American Indians.

On a tip from Wiggins.

    Sure they have. There are many teams out there named “Senators”.

    Political correctness is such an evil thing. “Hey, morons…their skin is red. Why is that not alright to say? They called us pale-faces…were they wrong? Was that offensive? WHY is it offensive to point out what everyone sees? Says who? Saying a person has red skin or blonde hair or blue eyes is now against the law? SCREW YOU!”

    I am offended by the New York “Yankees”. That has a negative connotation and is divisive. I demand it be changed.

    Same goes for the Brewers. That promotes alcohol abuse and drunk driving. Remove it.

    The Patriots? Jingoistic. Xenophobic. Outa here!

    The Cardinals? Hidden reference to Catholicism. No place in the game for religion. Cut it.

    The New Jersey Devils? Anaheim Angels? New Orleans Saints? See above.

    The SF Giants? An obvious slam against little people. Nix.

    Detroit Pistons? Not eco-friendly. Internal combustion engines contribute to global warming. Kill it.

    This ugly hate speech just has to stop!

    The name “Redskins” is a Badge of Honor, which is why the Liberals/Progressives/Marxists are intent on destroying it. They have no honor, and insist on creating a world where no one else does either.

    The good news is that come 11/4, Dingy Harry Reid will be confined to the scrap heap of history where he belongs. Is there a more despicable low life in DC?

    IMHO, the Washington Redskins should change their name to the (Bleeping) Political Hacks, to more accurately represent the D.C. area.

    Why do liberals find “Redskins” objectionable, but have absolutely no problem with calling white people they don’t like “Rednecks”?
