DC Mayor: Redskins Must Change Name
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | January 10,2013 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 01/10/2013 5:21:34 PM PST by jmcenanly

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: The mayor of Washington, DC, picked up on Courtland Milloy's piece in the Washington Post yesterday. The Redskins are gonna have to get rid of that nickname 'cause it's racist and it's bigoted.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

Here's Vincent Gray. Vincent Gray is the mayor of Washington, DC, said this last night. GRAY: I think it has become a lightning rod, and I would love to be able to sit down with the team -- and I'm happy to do that, to sit down with the team -- and others who are concerned with this and see if a change can be made. Obviously our basketball team did that, you know, with the Bullets being changed to the Wizards.

If the mayor and the elite of he District keep this up, the Washington Redskins just might change their name to that of whatever city will quit lecturing them and let them play football.

DC Mayor: Redskins Must Change Name

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I totally agree with the Mayor. The Redskins must leave that turd world hell hole of a city and become the SAN ANTONIO Redskins.

Given that the team plays its games in Landover, MD, a few skips and jumps from the Washington Beltway, I think they should change their name.

I like:

The Beltway Bandits

Their team logo could be the cover page on a Washington Times FOIA Request.

The ‘skins already have a brand new stadium in Maryland, don’t they? I don’t see how the mayor of Warshington would have any say in their business, unless they happen to win the Super Bowl and want to have a parade in the District.

No, its not brand ‘new’. DC is already lobbying to get a new stadium for them. They are trying to swap the FBI building for a new stadium. No joke.

One commonly used symbol of the American colonies was that of a native American woman. For the American colonists to choose that symbol tells me that they certainly didn't feel the great racism so many whine about today.

This is a political cartoon that circulated around 1774 about the "Intolerable acts".

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

”The able Doctor, or America Swallowing the Bitter Draught.” Etching. From the London Magazine, May 1, 1774. British Cartoon Collection. Prints and Photographs Division. LC-USZC4-5289. Prime Minister Lord North, author of the Boston Port Bill, forces the ”Intolerable Acts,” or tea, down the throat of America, a vulnerable Indian woman whose arms are restrained by Lord Chief Justice Mansfield, while Lord Sandwich, a notorious womanizer, pins down her feet and peers up her skirt. Behind them, Mother Britannia weeps helplessly. This British cartoon was quickly copied and distributed by Paul Revere.

On the other hand, the Washington Redskins could change their name to the “Washington Corruption”.

And the New England Patriots are rascist cause they all have not fought for this country, and; cannot be all patriots.. I think the dodgers is/ are a rascist/bad name as it implies draft dodging. Let’s look at the predators in hockey. Are these guys pedophiles? How bout those Bullets? Surely, that is inflamatory encouraging young punks to buy bullets. How bout those oilers we had. Hell, that must of been class warfare promoting oil men, so; it was changed to Titans and Texans. What about the Bears, Bulls, and Cubs in Chicago? Obama and pals love to trash animals and they owe the SPCA billions. PETA GET AFTER OBAMA NOW.

Some suggestions...if the PC in DC insist:

Washington Crack-Smokin’ Mayors (Marion Barry as mascot)

Washington Ghetto

Washington Entitlement

Washington Crips

Washington Monument (Capitals, United already taken)

Washington GangBangers...... They can call the cheerleaders “Bitches n’ Ho’s” (pardon the language)

I am of Irish ancestry, and I just now decided that I am outraged - yes, outraged I tell you - that the The University of Notre Dame calls its football team the "Fighting Irish." Not just "Irish", mind you, but "Fighting Irish!" What are they trying to say about my people? I've watched many of their games, I suspect that at least half of their players aren't even Irish!.......and then there's the "Boston Celtics." How insensitive can these people be?

I don’t like the ethnicity confusion. I prefer to be all-inclusive !
How about the name : “ Beltway Victims “ ?

I like the name "Washington Redskins" ... and Vincent Gray and all his coterie of brain-damaged, race-baiting zombies can pound sand up their collective ASS.

And I'm not even a Redskins fan ...

Mayor Gray is typical of so many Leftwingtards ~ not only is he totally ignorant of American history and the Bill of Rights, he's a fascist pig.

Going beyond that, the Washington football team in question is called by the nickname "the Skins".

Everybody who plays any sport, particularly pick up sports ~ e.g. basketball in DC which is a requirement of every single last black man to play if he wants to be considered "black enough", knows that in sports there are only TWO TEAMS ~ one is called "The Shirts" the other "The Skins".

Time for that offay honky lover Gray to git wit' the picture!

GRAY: I think it has become a lightning rod,

Does this moron even have a clue about what he is talking about? Does he even know any indians outside of Fauxcahantas Warren? The boy is getting off script. The big commie push right now isn't The Washington Redskins' name. It's the destruction of the Constitution and the Bill or Rights in order to get peoples' minds off of Barry's horrible economic policies.

I think the Mayor should change his name. He is not Gray, he is black and it is deceptive and racists to continue to use that name. He needs to change his name to Mayor Rufus Black so no one is mislead to believe he is a half breed like the Food Stamp President.
