April 30, 2014 5:08 PM Reid: NFL Should Punish Redskins Owner Like NBA Did Sterling By Andrew Johnson
The NBAs lifetime ban of Donald Sterling for his offensive comments should put the NFL on notice about Washington Redskins racist name, Harry Reid says.
On the Senate floor Wednesday afternoon, Reid commended NBA commissioner Adam Silver for his response to the Sterling situation, and urged his NFL counterpart Roger Goodell to take similar action to stamp out bigotry in its ranks. The Senate majority leader also dismissed the tradition-based defense Redskins owner Dan Snyder has made of the teams name when pledging to stick by it, pointing out that the Washington Wizards changing their name from the Washington Bullets in the 1990s.
Since Snyder fails to show any leadership, the National Football League should take an assist from the NBA and pick up the slack it would be a slam dunk, Redi said. I believe Roger Goodell is a good man, but its time for this good man to act: Remove this hateful term from your leagues vocabulary.
Reids demands echo that of Oneida Nation, the leading group behind the Redskins name-change, who says that the NBA has shown leagues like the NFL that they have a moral responsibility to not be a platform to promote bigotry.
What about Big Chief Apples, Harry? Assclown.
Congress should as well...
Reid did drop the N word a time or two didn’t he???
Go away Harry.Don’t you have some ranch land to steal?
Reid, you should also be tried and punished.
1010RD: America should punish Reid just like any other traitor.
Yet they have NO problem with Bill Maher being part owner of the Mets, I can write a thesis on all the crap that has come out of Maher’s mouth about Conservatives, but hey, as long as your a left wing whack job its fine to trash people
Granted, I think they were think more along the lines that the owners of the Orlando Magic are pro-traditional marriage (thus against gay marriage) and subject to condemnation for their "backward thinking", but Reid kicked it up a notch.
offensive comments about certain groups and people are allowed
He’s such a loser. Just have the BLM seize the Redskins. I’m sure they could make a claim that they have jurisdiction over them because it’s a Native American name...
The Washington Gomorrahans?
Don Sterling just changed his name to Louis Lerner so media will ignore him. It was a tough choice though - was thinking about changing it to Ben Ghazi.
What reed (sicKo) Really wants is to punish Cruz for [not in actuality] shutting down [15% of] the government over zer0care.
Slippery slope for sports franchise owners. But Dingy redefines the word ‘idiot’.
This is why you question misinterpretation, and bad policy.
Give these idiots an inch, and they’ll take all territory to the edge of our Solar system.
Oh plz. Just stfu Harry.
There are few people in public life more hateful than Harry Reid.
HARRY: Money Mob & Influence (Youtube video 2:44)
Holy crap, it’s not satire.
Annnnnd here we goooo!
*snork*. I have to clean my keyboard now. What you wrote was funny enough but I read it as Washington Gonorrheans.
Harry Reid is an idiot....unfortunately he is the hatchet man that the dims love to use. Someone ought to ask him if he wants to punish the lying liar E. Warren
That’s right, mob-associated, corrupt, crooked, power-drunk demagogue stopped his Koch Brothers non-sequiturs long enough to try to revive that idiotic meme.
the National Football League should take an assist from the NBA and pick up the slack it would be a slam dunk, Redi said.
Note to Hairy Reid, there is NO slam dunk in football...
Good God... Is this for real?
What a pandering SOB
Nevada, wake up
When is Reid going to be punished for his many crimes? I guess at his age he isn’t too far from death, and eternal punishment.
This guy should be called out for using the floor of the Senate as a shield from otherwise libelous statements against ordinary Americans.
Someone needs to get Harry back in the ring.
The word comes down from one of the chief fascists.
And if the Redskins go, what about the Cleveland Indians? Indian is such a bad word. The proper term is First Peoples.
Then what about the Cleveland Browns? What is a Brown if not a derogatory term?
So they went from naming the team after fast, sleek projectiles to naming their team for old men dressed in white sheets with tall, pointed hats leading their racist klan followers in cross-burning parties...
When the dust is settled on all this, if the NBA still exists, they will come after Ted Leonsis for the soon-to-be "racist" name of his basketball team. Just watch...
The Pubbies in the Senate are Pussies!!
Reid is such or moron, the Wash Bullets, changed their name to the Wash Wizards. What’s a wizard by todays standards, head of the KKK or Harry Potter.
Why doesn’t the senate shut him up, bringing all this garbage on the Senate floor, wasting taxpayer money.
Need it be said that Reid and criminally minded folks like him in DC is what is wrong in this country?? Oh never mind, Reid invariably laughs all the way to the bank, the corrupt POS.
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
The use of the word "chief" in this context is derogatory and offensive to native Americans. That's awful racist and quite hateful of you!
(Haha! I think I'm getting the hang of this!)
Is this outrage coming from same Harry Reid who still calls people negroes?
Welcome to Obama world. I know it sucks, but that is reality. (for now)
First thing I did was look for Semmens' name.
How about Louie Farrakhan? They will avoid him like the plague.
Sorry, should have been Louie Farrankhans.....
Can’t some deran*** moron sil**** this M* for good!
Dan Snyder should pick up the team and move them to San Antonio, renaming them the San Antonio Bandits.
Then he should publicly thank Harry Reid for single handedly ruining sports for the American public.
This is the most vitally important issue of our time to idiots like Reid.
He doesn’t even believe his own bullsh** anymore.
These SOB’s should all be thrown out on their asses.
What a joke this government has become.
And thus Day Two of “Operation Distract from the Benghazi Email Bombshell” is in the books with complete success.
