Washington Redskins To Change Name
5-28-14 | Retired Texas Vet

Posted on 05/28/2014 7:32:53 PM PDT by RetiredTexasVet

The owners of the Washington Redskins, NFL and Senator Elizabeth (Herring) Warren have come to a compromise in renaming the team. The new team name, effective this fall, will be: Washington Red Herrings.

Senator Warren, a princess in the Red Herring tribe of Massachusetts, suggested the Red Herring name instead of the racist Redskins moniker. Senator Warren stated that the Red Herring tribe had a proud heritage going all the way back to the original settlement of the country. Chief Herring Bone and his band were present and participated in the first Thanksgiving festivities. The tribe invented salted pumpkin seeds which saved colonists from starving during the harsh winters that followed.

Senator Warren, a direct descendant of Chief Herring Bone, convinced the Red Herring tribe that if they didn't allow their name to be used (with royalties, licensing fees, spin-offs, bobbleheads, chia pets, etc.), John Edwards who is representing the Amderican Bar Association and Trial Lawyers was ready to present the NFL and owners with alternatives.

The Washington Red Herrings, which symbolizes the true Washington spirit, is a much better name than The Washington Ambulance Chasers or The Washington Scumbag Lawyers, although the latter may be more representative of Washington reality.

The only problem with the name is the WASHINGTON part.

Criminals would be a most apt name. DC criminals has good ring to it.
Other names could be the elites, globalists, syndicate, thugs.

In response to an editorial in the San Jose Mercury News this AM about dropping the name "Redskins," a commenter submitted the following:

'Indeed, the Washington Redskins is an awful name. Note that the Washington Redskins are changing their name because of all the negativity, shame, humiliation, dissent, polarity, adversity, defiance, hatred, animosity, contempt, discrimination, division, violence, counter-productivity, ill-spirit, un-Godliness, and hostility associated with their name.”

“From now on they will be known simply as the Redskins."

I am offended by the names of all of the sports teams always being fierce animals or macho people or things.

They should be the Washington Earthworms. /s

I’m in favor of the Washington Redskins changing their name....perhaps the Winnipeg Redskins or the Tulsa Redskins.

And while we are at it, if redskins is out, so is the use of the term “Black Americans”. As an artist, I find it offensive to link the color black with the word American.

Fair is fair.

There must have been incredible pressure from the political class. Sad state of affairs. No one was offended; in fact it was a tribute to the Native Americans.

Glad I took home my 32oz plastic cup a few years ago from FedEx field in the game vs the Vikings. Wonder if that’ll eventually be worth some $$$? Or will it eventually get me behind bars?

180 years ago there was an attempt to destroy any proof of American Indians in the USA. Their earthworks were torn down, their pyramids demolished and the tribes banished to the back reaches of the US.

Today that work is still taking place by removing any reminder that there were any Indians here by removing all reminder of them to the backwaters of the sports industry.

The American Indian is becoming a non-person in the USA.

History repeats itself.

In the 50s, the Reds were "Redlegs" for fear they'd be taken for Communists.

“The Washington Foreskins?”

In Russia they would bury the foreskins from circumcisions and grow little dictators.
