Washington Redskins won’t change their name

And that’s too bad in a way. As a reader points out, many Americans, Indian and otherwise, are offended these days by the “Washington” part of the name.

In any event, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, having met with Redskins owner Dan Snyder earlier in the week, delivered the message to representatives from Oneida Indian Nation, the group that has been leading the charge for a name change. The Nation’s representatives didn’t take it well. Reportedly, they left the meeting frustrated, claiming that the NFL had “defended the use of a racist name.”

The designated Representative of the Oneida Indian Nation, and the CEO of its enterprises including casinos, is Ray Halbritter, who some say isn’t really an Oneida Indian. Halbritter is a major contributor to President Obama. Perhaps the Redskins could be renamed the Washington Bundlers (or maybe Bunglers, if the team’s play doesn’t improve soon).

I’m pretty sure that one day Washington’s NFL team will change its name. When this happens, I hope it’s because the owner doesn’t like the name, not because left-wing activists such as Halbritter have demanded a change.

Snyder will now be subject to demonstrations at the stadiums every Sunday.

Maybe he can beat them to the punch and actually have Indians of his own doing a war dance around a campfire during tailgate parties.

He should put cigar store Indians at all the Stadium entrances.

One of the "chiefs" leading the complaining has been found to be a total fraud.  Not only was he not a chief, there was no proof he had Indian blood. :silly:  I wonder if he is related to Elizabeth Warren? :woohoo:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
