[VANITY] Bob Costas is a moron
2013-OCT-13 | Self

Posted on 10/13/2013 7:08:40 PM PDT by re_nortex

His leftist, politically-correct commentary during Sunday Night Football's halftime confirms his idiocy. He concluded that the name "Redskins" is offensive. No. It's not.

NBC's removal of Keith Olbermann from SNF was not enough. Costas now must go.

And what's with the PC term, "native American"? Anyone born here (anchor babies aside, of course) is a native American. On the eve of Columbus Day, Costas' remarks were particularly stupid.

Bob Costas has only NOW determined that “Redskins” is an offensive name?

Or did he determine that now was the PC time to “get in front of this issue”?

They really ought to get rid of the “Washington” part of the name. Who would want to represent that?

New York Giants is offensive to giant people. How would people like it if the team was called the New York Midgets?

And the name Bob Costas is offensive. It sounds like Bob cost ass.

That was QUITE annoying.

Many of the NFL owners are Conservative or at least nominally Republican. Pressure must be applied to remove the gun-grabbing, homosexualist Costas from the broadcast.

And, I'd like to see the team song, "Hail to the Redskins", restore the lyric, "Fight for Old Dixie!".

That would really drive that lil' liberal crazy!

During his rant, I could only think that during my life the PC version on race had evolved from Negro to black to African-American, clearly color based adjectives are not a problem. I believe any of them are still acceptable and certainly black still is. Costas being a person of limited intellect was of course unable to make that connection. He also of course is unable to understand the concept of private property.

NBC does it again. Did they learn anything from the Costas fiasco on gun control last season?

Why do they give this metrosexual candyass a forum at halftime to spout his socialist agenda? Are they as ignorant about history as Costas is?

Just pathetic.

Sports is becoming a real pain in the @$$ now that the DNC has taken it over. I mean come on. Brutes wearing pink cleats and jock straps in order to make a bunch of beer swilling, pizza chomping men watching TV aware of women’s breasts? When did that become a problem?

Change the name to Palefaces.

When the mentally and height-challenged idiot Costas enumerated the groups that were out-of-bounds for the "-skins" suffix, notably absent were whites.

If I was Dan Snyder I would demand Costas be fired.

But only after he apologized and admitted he has a tiny wee-wee.

He's a commie and did indeed wildly rant about guns, wanting to destroy the Second Amendment. He also was big fan of Jason Collins, the sodomite NBA thug. I'm sure Costas' next commentary will be in support of child killing since, as a communist, he doubtlessly favors abortion.

“Costas” means “he who walks with chapped thighs and load in pants”, in Chippewa. FUBC!

Yes, in the wake of Newtown last year, on Sunday Night Football. But it generated such a negative reaction, I didn’t think he’d try it again.

I can’t decide what’s more irritating: empty headed entertainers mouthing their PC political views, or empty headed sports talking heads mouthing their PC political views.

Actually, I muted Costas because he’s as predictable as a braying jackass on most topics.

“Native Americans” crossed the bering straight from Asia 20,000 years ago. That’s a comparitively long time ago in written history, but not in all of human history. It just took a little more time for Europeans to make the trip, after inventing the sufficient technology.

He's no Keith Jackson (but who is), but I've gotten to accept ol' Brent. His Musburgerims have inspired several drinking games. Honestly, he says "folks" even more than Bill O'Reilly.

If there's going to be commentary about the NFL, one evil needs to be addressed, the Rooney Rule. This quota system was championed by Obama toady, Dan Rooney of the Pittsburgh Steelers. That's the same idiot who thanked Hussein after his team won the 2008 Super Bowl. It would take real courage for a broadcaster to speak up and expose this form of leftist affirmative action.
