McCain: I would have signed that Democratic letter asking the NFL to change the Redskinsí name
Hotair ^ | 05/23/2014 | AllahPundit

Posted on 05/23/2014 1:10:39 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

Of course he would. Among the public, this is a non-issue: Despite endless lefty blather about the name over the past year, including from The One himself, 79 percent side with the ‘Skins. (That’s especially dangerous to pols elected by the Redskins’ core fan base, which is why Virginia senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner refused to sign the letter.) Among the political class, though, it’s a proxy for ideology, an easy check-the-box way to polish your particular brand. That’s how this issue was able to accelerate from slow-news-day fodder on Slate last August to a cause celebre among fully half of the United States Senate. I’d be surprised if there are even five people in the chamber who’ve given this issue more than two minutes of thought, but when an opportunity to buy political piety this cheaply arises, anyone in the market for it is going to lunge. And Maverick’s always in the market.

Why didn’t Democrats ask him to sign, then?

On Thursday, Republicans dismissed the May 21 letter — signed by 49 Senate Democrats and sent to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida sent his own letter) — as a pointless exercise unlikely to change anything. GOP lawmakers said that they were never approached by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) or Washington Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), the former chairwoman of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee who circulated the letter…

One Republican — Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), whose state has a significant portion of Native Americans — said he “probably” would have added his signature to the letter if he had been asked. That would have elevated the stature of the Democrats’ initiative by making it both bipartisan and endorsed by the GOP’s 2008 presidential nominee. McCain has joined Democrats on some social issues recently, advocating to end workplace discrimination based on sexuality and urging his governor to veto a bill that would have allowed businesses to deny service to gay customers.

“They didn’t ask,” McCain said, confirming he still opposed the “Redskins” moniker for the team. “It’s offensive to our Native Americans.”

Yeah, McCain would have been a solid “get” for Dems here. And I bet he’s not the only Republican who would have signed. Where Maverick goes, Lindsey Graham usually follows, and then you have the usual centrist Collins/Murkowski/Kirk coalition. Being able to say that a clear majority of the Senate was opposed to the Redskins name would have been a nice talking point for Democrats, “proof” that this issue was catching on among GOPers as well. Instead, they didn’t even approach McCain. Why? Because this is about moral posturing, not about actually pressuring the ‘Skins or the NFL to do something. And if you’re going to posture, why would you invite Republicans to join you? You plant the Democratic flag on the position that “Redskins” is abhorrent to all right-thinking people and salute. When they eventually send a letter to the Koch brothers asking them politely to commit suicide for the good of America, Republicans won’t be asked to sign that one either. This is about Democratic branding, nothing more.

Here’s Maria Cantwell making an impassioned plea to the chamber to give this shiny object the brief news-cycle attention it deserves. You’re next, Chief Wahoo. Exit quotation: ““The intent of the team’s name has always been to present a strong, positive and respectful image,’ the league said in a statement. ‘The name is not used by the team or the NFL in any other context, though we respect those that view it differently.’”

While we're at it, why don't the Democrats DEMAND the state of Oklahoma change its name as well?

The state's name is derived from the Choctaw words okla and humma, meaning "red people".

Let's not be selectively outraged... BE CONSISTENT.

FORCE OKLAHOMA TO CHANGE ITS NAME NOW! /s

Every damn time the PC police make an issue of ANY subject, REGARDLESS of personal feelings on the particular merits of that issue, intelligent patriotic Americans need to stand together and STOP them. They destroying our society and culture and generating schisms and hatreds where none previsouly existed. They are despicable and evil.

That publicity hound was napping when the Dems were calling their media enablers to make their earth-shattering announcement to change the Redskins name. Meanwhile, our vets can’t get appointments at VA hospitals and the Democrats block action on the House bill to punish those who were in charge of the fraudulent double booking in the VA.

The entire United States of America is filled with names of cities, states, rivers, lakes, ponds, mountain ranges, and even trees that carry names of an INDIAN root. Ever gaze upon the majesty of a REDWOOD TREE?
If you agree with this claim regarding a name is a ‘racial slur’ then better tell virtually the vast majority of High Schools in the country to drop the names of their mascots. Rename the Cleveland baseball team. The Minnesota football team honors a tribe of people who ravaged Europe. There is no end to this nonsense.
One thing I must admit, though. The industry required to change every offending sign across the country would surely lead the country to a new prosperity, and create countless thousands of jobs for Americans.

“Let’s not be selectively outraged... BE CONSISTENT. FORCE OKLAHOMA TO CHANGE ITS NAME NOW! /s” Cleveland Indians Atlanta Braves Golden State Warriors ND Fighting Irish Boston Celtics Come on now people. So many stupid things to do, so little time.

from wikipedia Main article: List of U.S. state name etymologies

guess we're gonna rename most of the states

Alabama – named for the Alibamu, a tribe whose name derives from a Choctaw phrase meaning "thicket-clearers"[1] or "plant-cutters" (from albah, "(medicinal) plants", and amo, "to clear"). The modern Choctaw name for the tribe is Albaamu.[2]

Alaska – from Aleut alaxsxaq, "the mainland" (literally "the object towards which the action of the sea is directed").[3]

Arizona – may be from O'odham ali ṣona-g, "having a little spring", though it may come from Basque: aritz zonak ("Good oaks").[4]

Arkansas – from the Illinois rendering of the tribal autonym kką:ze (see Kansas, below), which the Miami and Illinois used to refer to the Quapaw.[4][5][6]

Connecticut – from some Eastern Algonquian language of southern New England (perhaps Mahican), meaning "at the long tidal river" (after the Connecticut River).[7][8] The name reflects Proto-Eastern-Algonquian *kwən-, "long"; *-əhtəkw, "tidal river"; and *-ənk, the locative suffix[9]

Hawaii - Hawaiian language name Hawaiʻi - from Hawaiki, legendary homeland of the Polynesians.[10] Hawaiki is believed to mean "place of the gods"[11]

Idaho – may be from Plains Apache ídaahę́, "enemy", used to refer to the Comanches,[12] or it may have been an invented word.

Illinois – from the French rendering of an Algonquian (perhaps Miami) word apparently meaning "s/he speaks normally" (c.f. Miami ilenweewa),[13] from Proto-Algonquian *elen-, "ordinary" + -wē, "to speak",[14][15] referring to the Illiniwek.

Iowa – from Dakota ayúxba or ayuxwe, via French Aiouez.[16][17][18]

Kansas – from the autonym kką:ze.[5]

Kentucky – from an Iroquoian word meaning "at the meadow" or "on the prairie"[19] (c.f. Seneca gëdá’geh [kẽtaʔkeh], "at the field").[20]

Massachusetts – from an Algonquian language of southern New England, and apparently means "near the small big mountain", usually identified as Great Blue Hill on the border of Milton and Canton, Massachusetts[21] (c.f. the Narragansett name Massachusêuck).[21]

Michigan – from Ottawa mishigami, "large water" or "large lake".".[22][23]

Minnesota – from Dakota mni-sota, "turbid water".[8][24]

Mississippi – from an Algonquian language, probably Ojibwe, meaning "big river" (Ojibwe misiziibi).[22][25]

Missouri – named for the Missouri tribe, whose name comes from Illinois mihsoori, "dugout canoe".[26]

Nebraska – from Chiwere ñįbraske, "flattened water".[27]

New Mexico – the name "Mexico" comes from Nahuatl Mēxihco, of unknown derivation.[28]

North and South Dakota – dakhóta comes from the Sioux word for "friend" or "ally".[27]

Ohio – from Seneca ohi:yo’, "beautiful river".[29][30]

Oklahoma – invented by Chief Allen Wright as a rough translation of "Indian Territory"; in Choctaw, okla means "people", "tribe", or "nation", and homa- means "red", thus: "Red people".[8][31]

Tennessee – Derived from the name of a Cherokee village, Tanasi, whose etymology is unknown.[32]

Texas – ultimately from Caddo táyshaʔ, "friend".[33][34]

Utah – from a language of one of the Ute tribe's neighbors, such as Western Apache yúdah, "high up".[35]

Wisconsin – originally "Mescousing", from an Algonquian language, though the source and meaning is not entirely clear; most likely from the Miami word Meskonsing meaning "it lies red"[36][37] (c.f. Ojibwe miskosin).[22]

Wyoming – from Munsee Delaware xwé:wamənk, "at the big river flat".[38]
