The Redskins name debate just isn't going away.
A new political cartoon in the New York Daily News is raising eyebrows by comparing the Skins logo to a swastika and the confederate flag.
Next to it is written the caption "Archaic Symbols of Pride and Heritage."

“Redskins” was OK for all these years. What happened to make these people suddenly “realize” it was racist? Could it be that they had no more witches to hunt? Could it be that they hate this country and themselves? Could it be that they are just looking for brownie points?
Soon the American Indian will truly be “THE VANISHING AMERICAN” Can't you see a lib parent in the future foaming at the mouth when their kid asks...”Dad(s) What was an Indian?”
When I first saw this cartoon, I initially thought it was drawn by a conservative trying to show how obsessed the liberals have been on this issue.
“Redskins was OK for all these years. What happened to make these people suddenly realize it was racist? “
Alinsky. Pick a target. Polarize it. Attack it. It’s all about energizing the base. Create a crisis and profit thereby. BTW, is this hurting the Redskin’s sales? I’d think not. Probably helps.
The commies tried to do this to VW about chosing the name Toureg because the Toureg tribe had slaves. VW said, “F*ck you.” and that was the end of it.
Yes. I always thought that wanting to get rid of it was more likely to be racist. I would think it’s an honor.
Amazed they would make this comparison, usually Nazi and Hitler comparisons are reserved for Conservative leaders.
I find the rainbow flag to be more offensive than any of the three listed.
This came from People Eating Tasty Animals.
There is a very small minority of people in this country that wants to punish other people for their thoughts and beliefs. They normally claim we should all be broad minded
but they have narrow minds themselves when it comes to this PC stuff.

Whats next, the Cleveland ... Browns?
The Washington Redskins have given in to public pressure and are changing the their name from Redskins to Foreskins to recognize and acknowledge just how many dick heads there are in Washington.
The only embarrassing part of the name “Washington Redskins” is the word “Washington”.
Just how is WA Post going to justify their position.
Yes, although the Nazis were the furthest thing from Conservative leaders, other than the actual Communists.
Comparing the Nazis to the Confederates (that is the absolute monolithic totalitarians to the very individualistic Confederates, is itself a demonstration of the irrationality of the Left.)
The reality is that the Left seeks a Nazi like monolithic society, and the recognition of the American Indians--for that matter the recognition of any ethnicity--other than in connection with "victimization politics"--is offensive to those whose egalitarian fanaticism drives them into the insane pretense that all peoples are simply interchangeable.
