Fast & Furious is offensive.

NSA Spying on Americans (and lying about it) is offensive.

IRS abusing conservative political groups (and lying about it) is offensive.

Refusing to enforce immigration law (and lying about it) is offensive.

Eric “The Red” Holder needs to clean up his own act ... or fall on his sword. He has no standing to bitch about a football team.

Lawless, racist, affirmative action liar Eric "The Red" Holder is offensive and should be changed via impeachment ASAP,
or faster than you can say "furious" (H/T James O'Keefe).

The feds and Holder have no constitutional say about "offensive" conduct or words of individuals (incl companies). The Constitution does not grant the feds any power over individuals in general and over their "offensive" words or actions in particular.

You can't nor needn't reach the issue of whether "Redskin" is "offensive", because it is unconstitutional for the feds to inquire about it.

The Constitution DOES require the feds to butt out of our lives!

Goodness, NO! He's also investigating the outhouse that floated by in a small-town parade. These are weighty matters affecting the very foundations of the Republic.

It’s funny, because this “story” seemed to kind of go away for a while, which means it’s really not offensive to virtually anyone. Almost nobody seemed to want to talk about it anymore. Instead people have been talking about other things that the dems don’t want them to be talking about, so it was important to try to steer the conversation back to the Redskins. Nice try, but it’s not going to work.

I agree the name Washington Redskins is offensive.

They should remove the offensive part and be known as the Redskins.

I find both Anthony Weiner’s and Eric Holder’s last names offensive. After all, they sound like a bunch of weiner holders.

Eric Holder needs to concentrate on the IRS, veterans admin, NSA snooping, presidential misconduct....and stop worrying about something that he cannot have an effect on.

Wasn't Holder born outside these United States, to foreign parents?

If so, is it really appropriate that he lecture those in his adopted country on their racial attitudes? I do not want to step on anyone's toes; but, to me, one taken in, and permitted to enjoy the benefits that others have achieved, ought not to be insulting the culture of those whose achievements he is allowed to exploit.

Perhaps some lurker will challenge my sentiment.

“U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder says that the Washington Redskins’ name ‘ought to be changed’ and that it’s ‘an offensive name,’”

Then how about “Coffeeskins”, Meathead?

if you say so Eric...I am sure that he appreciates the irony of his position as America was designed to be protective of the common citizen from the overreaches of the ruling class.

Eric should probably step down and await prosecution for the abuses he and this administration perpetrated upon this country...

Although Eric hHolder has time to babble about the Redskins, he has yet to take action regarding the IRS crimes and the disgraced Lois Lerner.
