Hundt: 'Redskins' Use May Make Snyder Unfit Licensee
Multichannel ^ | 6/30/14 | John Eggerton

Posted on 07/03/2014 4:41:16 AM PDT by AT7Saluki

Former FCC chairman Reed Hundt is suggesting the FCC may want to strip Redskins owner Dan Snyder of his radio station licenses if he does not change the name of the team.

According to an interview on Indian Country Today Media Network, Hundt said that the FCC should "reevaluate" whether Snyder is fit to be a licensee, by which Hundt meant "a person of appropriate character," he said.

“The FCC should consider whether Mr. Snyder is fit to own radio station licenses given that he uses radio stations to broadcast an ethnic slur,” he said. “These licenses are owned by the public and they are given to individuals for the purpose of serving the public interest.

I would think "public interest" would indicate it's something the public is interested in - something sorely lacking in this whole fiasco.

They should just change their mascot from an American Indian to a severely sunburned white guy. Problem solved.

funny you say that...I’m a St John’s grad, went through school on a track scholarship during the recent heyday of St John’s basketball with Lou Carnesecca and Chris Mullen....we used to be known as the Redmen and the mascot was some guy running around in full indian headress...it was great...

when the PC police hit the scene in the 90’s with Clinton they changed the mascot to some guy wearing a red tuxedo...they finally changed the name from Redmen to Redstorm and St John’s basketball has sucked ever since never mind they had to drop the mens track program due to title nine...

Looks like Former FCC chairman Reed Hundt needs to convince the current chairman to pull the FCC licenses from ALL radio stations which broadcast Rap “music”, since each “uses radio stations to broadcast an ethnic slur” (the infamous “N” word, which appears to constitute a major of the lyrics of many Rap performances) as well as numerous sexist/misogynistic terms.

I think the “next” Kansas City CHIEF’s mascot should be a man dress in the uniform of a U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer, complete with ribbons on the left chest.
The navy CHIEF is the “heart of the fleet” and would be quite deserving of the honor.
OOOH..how about the REDSKINS changing their name to the GUNNERS, in honor of the Gunnery Sargents of the U.S. Marine Corps. That would be one hell of game.

I cannot recall the term “Redskin” being used in a disparaging manner by anyone. Has anyone heard another person using that term by, for example, saying “Senator Warren, that dirty Redskin” or words to that effect?

I have heard “Hail to the Redskins” being sung at Washington football games, however.

It’s tyranny under the veil of populism. The Left has become quite proficient at ginning up public ire to feign support for a cause that’s really a non-starter among the thinking lot of us.

I'm deeply offended that Progressive Insurance would use a name that connotes mass murder on an industrial scale. Their access to the public airwaves should be curtailed and the trademark "Progressive" should be canceled.

I sort of agree with doing away with Indian names.

All things Indian should be wiped from our society. Removed from textbooks. Museums burned. No memories retained. It should be a though they never existed.

Then, we can begin with the Mexicans, then the Philistines, then................

The left is becoming desperate and just like the left in every other country on the face of the planet, when the left gets desperate the left turns to violence to hang onto power.

The left is following the Weather Underground playbook in pushing for violence, “Find an incident, a spark to ignite the flame. Ratchet it up to a raging inferno.”

They are setting up the “perfect storm” for another “False Flag” just like was tried in 2010 with the attempted car bombing in NYC which they tried to blame on the TEA Party.

I fully expect the left to orchestrate the race war they have been pushing for over 45 years.

Following the Weather Underground playbook, I’m expecting the illegals to start marching in the streets with demands and the protest will quickly turn into riots, which will be followed by terrorist attacks.

I expect one major terrorist attack, possibly on the Gateway to the West Arch since it represents to Hispanics the White man stealing Hispanic lands, then there will be IED’s.

When the people take matters into their own hands to protect themselves, the “right wing extremist” will be blamed for escalating the violence.

No, the (open) warfare against freedom and liberty started back in November of 2008.

Prior to that, Congress and the White House had been covertly conducting war against our freedoms and liberties for decades.
