Analysis: Before the tyranny of political correctness forces Oklahoma (Choctaw words okla and humma, meaning “red people“) to change its name, maybe we should come to the defense of the National Football League’s Washington Redskins.
Of course Oklahomans know that the vast majority of Native Americans do not believe the word offensive. A team mascot is a hero honored and respected by fans, but don’t tell the Leftists dedicated to promoting another manufactured crisis. Some people can get offended over the time of day.
In Washington today there are too many issues of corruption to list even major lies of the Department of Ideological Justice, the Internal Revenue and Political Persecution Service, and the National Spying on its own people Agency. Of course we cannot speak or write about a Presidential Administration that only lies when they open their mouths. Don’t worry, in their best personal and professional interests, they will pretend to care for you, just like they took such good care of Native Americans so many generations ago. They promised – we know what they delivered.
Speaking up on this national issue is not necessarily a Native American thing to do, but look what happened when we didn’t speak up enough and that all-white-girl, Elizabeth Warren claimed native and got elected to the U.S. Senate. Fortunately there are some Americans with an attitude that are speaking up this time and they have a plan.
Constitutional Rights PAC has launched a national campaign to urge Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder to rename the Redskins to “The Washington Tea Party.” The U.S. Patent Office’s recent cancellation of the Redskins trademark prompted the conservative organization to get involved in this trivial, politically motivated, but not pointless fight.
Yesterday, the United States Patent and Trademark Office stated, “a substantial composite of Native Americans found the term Redskins to be disparaging.” In response, Snyder points to multiple surveys showing that a majority of Native Americans support the team’s name. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who was a Redskins fan as a kid, has defended Snyder and the team’s name. The NFL has fought for the Redskins to keep their name, but many believe that the recent actions of the U.S. Patent Office could be the beginning of the end of the Redskins team name.
“Democrats in the Senate have blown this issue out of proportion, and made it more political than anyone could have ever anticipated.” said Larry Ward, Chairman of Constitutional Rights PAC. “Fifty Democrat Senators with nothing better to do with their time, forgoing important issues like the economy, foreign policy, approving the Keystone Pipeline and securing our border have backed a letter to the NFL that calls for a name change.”
Which name do you think the left will find more offensive: “The Redskins” or “The Tea Party?”
The Tea Party movement aims to put power in the hands of the people, not in the hands of the government. The movement is made up of Patriots who stand up to government intrusiveness and fight for the principles set forth in the U.S. Constitution. Given the recent events regarding the fight to change the “offensive” Redskins team name, the Tea Party is the perfect representation of the fight of the American people against political correctness and government intrusion.
