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.

“The Redskins name debate just isn’t going away.”
I think the NFL and sports media is hoping it won’t, any story but HGH testing and brain injuries, right?
Its an easy target—a symbol they can trash to impose their way—next they will say the Redsocks are racists, or the Cowboys! Like the Confederate Flag—its easy to spin it as racist, KKK, symbol (even if it wasn’t). They have to keep up the pressure to reform—keep the pot boiling. Its just their way.
They would try to change the name of the state, Oklahoma, if there was money in it. Oklahoma, by the way means, “red people.” These PC pimps are doing it for the money and know very well that red is also a name for them, as in “Red Commies.”
Just change the name to the Washington “Reds” and make Che Guevara the mascot. That should satisfy the critics.
Same goes for the Confederate Battle Flag. When I was a kid, growing up in 1970s Kentucky, my friends and I -- blacks and whites -- all had CBF stickers on our lunch boxes, patches on our jeans jackets, mini CBFs flying from the sissy bars on our bikes, etc. It was (and still is) a symbol of the South. Not a symbol of slavery or hate, but a symbol of Southern Pride.
It wasn't until Jesse Jacka** and Al Charlatan, et al, made it a racist symbol in the 80s and 90s, that it "became racist" (of course, it's not).
This flap over the Redskins name and flag is a perfect example of "first they came for the Jews, but I said nothing, because I was not a Jew." What's next? The Gadsden Flag? Your or my state flag? Old Glory? Either we stand together, or we hang separately, one by one.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
islame on the other hand still carries on the Nazi goals!
This is nothing but the PC form of bullying. This societal psychosis knows no limits.
Hmmm, they finally get a black quarterback.....maybe the people who want this change are.....RACIST!?!?! *Jarring chord*
Same exact crap south bashing pieces of shite say right here on free republic
I curse them
This is just another diversionary stunt to taken your attention away from the commie behind the curtain.
BTW, does the First Cow know that history cannot be changed? Revised and lied about, yes. But never changed.
she has all the charm of a rain soaked cigar..and half the brain power...
maybe obama promised her he’d change history...?
Chris Collinsworth weighs in on “Inside the NFL” admitting the historical tribute of the Redskins name. But he goes on to say he’s now preoccupied by the derogatory meaning of “red skins” — something he cannot get out of his mind.
Welcome to the cult of Political Correctness.
Absolutely true. The notion that Hitler was somehow right-wing (extreme or not) is a total myth the "Progressives" continually attempt to foist off on the low-information pukes.
The word "Nazi" comes from the German pronunciation of the first two syllables of the Party's official name: Die Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, the National Socialist German Workers' Party.
IOW, the Nazis were lefties, just like the commies, but they couldn't get along because the Krauts felt their German version of leftism was superior to the Rooskies' international socialist vision.
The lie that the Nazis were anything else, has been skillfully promoted by Leftist propagandists, to confuse a wide variety of issues & groups, ever since World War II. It needs to be laid to rest, once & for all.
