Skip to comments.Liberals Wage War on the Redskins

After the regime issued its latest diktat Wednesday via a three-judge panel at the Patent and Trademark Office, which ruled 2-1 to withdraw trademark protection for the Washington Redskins, Rush Limbaugh was pretty much spot-on when he noted, “This is Barack Obama.”
Actually, this goes beyond Obama (as the Patent and Trademark Office has tried this before). This is liberalism. This is what happens when liberals have power. Take note of those who cheered the decision: “The writing is on the wall,” said a jubilant Harry Reid.
Democratic Senator Maria Cantwell said, “We're so excited to know that finally people are recognizing that this issue can no longer be a business case for the NFL to use this patent.” What the Democrats should be excited about is that, for however brief a period of time, they don’t have to answer questions about Iraq, Benghazi, the IRS, an illegal immigrant invasion, and the like.
When it comes to public opinion on this issue, virtually every poll ever taken shows overwhelming support for the Redskins name. Even in the most liberal place in the country, Washington D.C. two-thirds polled say the team’s name should not change.
What’s more, Native Americans in general support the name. Late last year, CBS Sports in D.C. reported on a poll that revealed 90% support for the Redskins name among Native Americans. In addition, dozens of American high schools use “Redskins” as their mascot. Most telling is the fact that, in almost all of these high schools, the majority of the students are Native American. Kingston High School in Oklahoma -- where about 58% of the student body is Native American -- has used the Redskins name for over a century.

Well since 0bama is a De facto muzzie maybe he should go after Arkansas Razorback’s logo of a pig - offends muzzies.
The United Negro College Fund may need to be updated - unless, of course, they’re proud of that name. The Congressional Black Caucus on the other hand...
Simple ...change the Red Skins name to something more fitting for Washington, DC...I would suggest the Washington Kleptocrats.
Just rename the team the Washington Rats and get it over with.
TOTALITARIANS Wage War on the Redskins on behalf of faux, aggrieved, activist, agenda-driven, members of a collective.
Change the name to the Washington Totalitarians.
I guess the Blackfoot tribe is going to have to change their name. They really have their colors mixed up.
Is “red”, as a name for a color, inherently more evil than the word “white” as a name for a color? Is the red rose ugly when compared to the white rose? Are red blood cells uglier than white blood cells? This is just another case of the Democrats trying to rile up their base before an election.
Professional football players are some of the richest, most physically fit people in the country. They are also some of the most admired people. If people were calling human waste “redskins”, then I could see the outrage. But professional football players? That’s much ado about nothing.
the redskins should put up shirts and paraphernalia for sale with a ‘stick it to the man’ addition somehow
it’d make their brand more widespread then ever
hell, I’d buy something just to make 0bama crazy
The commie libs are so stupid they think that the Washington Redskins is an indian tribe in Silicon valley.
Can’t stand Grover Norquist, but reportedly he suggested that Schneider rename the team, the *Washington Reagans*.
Don’t know Schneider’s politics, but for the Libs that would certainly be a textbook case of, Be careful what you wish for....
Obama as a mascot?
ROFLMAO! Good one joshua c
I favorite would be the Washington Cesspools.
I’d bet the largest group of season ticket holders are somehow associated with the federal government....politicians, bureaucrazies, lobbyists, contractors, lawyers, etc. I wonder how many will actually boycott the REDSKINS games.....
For what its worth my liberal nephew and his more liberal wife both think Snyder should tell the NFL to f*** off and take their Indian activists, all two of them, with them.
Don’t think this is getting much traction in the real world.
Honoring the first Americans ... The Washington Kennewick Men Football Club.
