so how do they intend to make reference to that...particular team?

will they invent their OWN NAME for the REDSKINS...or simply refuse to include them in their stinking paper?

Oh, please.

Political Correctness has run completely amok!

This is getting as bad as China during Mao’s “cultural revolution”.

And China executed the perpetrators of that crime after Mao went to hell.

I thought the Ass. Press had already “examined” its Redskins.

It’s about time some people got balls and stood up to this crap.

I feel like I am the only one who is sending mail and leaving comments every day to these nuts.

Associated Press examining its use of the Redskins name

I'm examining my use of the 'Associated Press' name. I believe it is more appropriate to call them the Associated Propaganda. I'm going to encourage the entire country to call them that.

As if anyone other than the journ-O-lists at the AP rely on the AP “Style Book” to determine how they should express themselves. HAH!

With concussions and domestic violence dominating the off-field headlines . . .

Not to mention all the uproar over homophobic bigotry in the evil Midwest.

Next, look for the associated press to start using the term “the Zionist entity” instead of “Israel” and “the great Satan” instead of “the United States”.

They have turned into “the Associated Idiots”.

There seems to be an obsessive, if not hysterical, need in this country for some people on the left to stick their noses into everyone else's business. This leftist notion that everyone needs to do and say what they dictate is scary. Cultural totalitarianism and marxism. But then that is what the liberals and the democRAT party have descended into.

Because of this PC mass hysteria, I have come to admire those folks who resist the pressure from these people to change or apologize and instead justify and defend their own differing opinions and philosophies. It is good to be different and unique. It is bad to be just one of the robotic crowd who resemble a whole singular mind-set and mentally deranged group who thinks everyone ought to think and do everything the exact same way.

A current example of this is the overwhelming criticism and backlash of the new religious freedom law passed in Indiana. It's like everyone wants to jump on the bandwagon of criticizing a law that has nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with gay and lesbian discrimination but is being used as a red herring and vehicle for furthering the gay mafia agenda. If you're not with this super-minority clic, you are not with the "in crowd". How ridiculous for intelligent people to act. I mean, even the governor of Connecticut criticized the new las in Indiana and banned all state travel to the state, until, oopsie, he was told his own state had the same law on the books. Classic example of the lemming behavior of progressive liberal idiots.

And so, to this end, I greatly admire the owner of the Washington Redskins for sticking to his guns and keeping the Redskins name for his team and basically telling his critics to f*ck-off. There is nothing better in my mind, than people who stick to their guns under relentless pressure and public scorn. If he buckles to the pressure from the PC left, and drops or changes the name, I will be greatly disappointed. And I say this without being a fan of professional football in general or the team in specific.

But in keeping with my sense of humor, I submit this graphic as a possible alternative logo for the team to keep their name while appeasing the opposition. :-)

If a poll was taken of all ‘real’ American Indians, how many would be objecting to the teams that use the term Redskins?

It would be a very small percentage. Only liberal activists and/or people trying to make some money off of some controversy are pushing this name change.

Same type of people pushing the LGBT agenda. Another minority group.
