NAME CHANGE (But, hey~ it’s all in the name of Political Correctness; right?)

WHAT’S IN A NAME? by D.F. Howard©June 2014 

What’s all the hub-bub about the NFL trying to force a name change on the owners of the Washington Redskins? Who exactly is running this Bull Shit attempt at “Political Correctness”; all in the name of racism? The last time I checked in on America~ we are still a free country, with a Constitutional right of Free Speech under the First Amendment! Okay, so let’s forget all that for a minute and instead think about who exactly is trying to “wag the dog” here as well as their reasons for it because we really all know that it is the radical left  wing of our Federal Government!  Come to think of it, never mind; my original question for now & instead let’s just try these scenarios on for size. ~ JGT

Many, not the majority, but many~ Native Americans don’t like the name, “Redskins”. Many would say that the meaning; of the word ‘redskins’ is equivalent to the word, “Warriors” which in American Indian culture is considered a great honor, but dammit~ we Politically Correct (PC)  people don’t want to offend them, so in the spirit of PC, let’s just deprive the NFL redskins-cartoon-mckee-495x324owners (Americans) of their First Amendment rights instead. But, hey~ it’s all in the name of Political Correctness; right?

So what’s next? Oh, I know~ how about the Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Braves, Chicago Blackhawks & the Cleveland Browns? Why not? It’s all about Indians and skin-color; right? Indeed, while we’re at it, let’s get rid of the Carolina Panthers too because, after all~ doesn’t that team name keep alive the memory of the militant blacks that formed the Black Panthers in the 1960’s? White people would definitely be offended by that name; wouldn’t they? But, hey~ it’s all in the name of Political Correctness; right?

Now, although I’m a Jersey Girl~ I have to wonder about a team named the New York Yankees? Doesn’t the name offend those people that live in the south? I don’t know of any team named for the confederacy. Do you? I don’t see the southern states uprising over a team that could have been named something like the “Atlanta Rebels” or the “Carolina Confederates”; do you?  But, hey~ it’s all in the name of Political Correctness; right?

What about all the teams named after religious organizations? Christian & Judea references here must be totally obliterated in the name of political correctness according to the PC Police. They will have a field day there! The New Orleans Saints, Los Angeles Angels, San Diego Padres & St. Louis Cardinals will be forced to change their team names because (3) three atheists out of  318 million people in the U.S. don’t like it.  But, hey~ it’s all in the name of Political Correctness; right?

While we are at it, let’s get rid of all the team names that glorify historical criminals, those that raped & pillaged their way through life. Let’s start with the Minnesota Vikings, Oakland Raiders; Tampa Bay Buccaneers & those horrible Pittsburgh Pirates!  They are evil names referring to criminal men in our history so let’s get rid of them too because it sends a bad message. But, hey~ it’s all in the name of Political Correctness; right?

Now that all that PC stuff is out of our way, let’s see what teams are sending a horrible message to our children. The San Diego Chargers are promoting irresponsible spending habits! So, they have to go!  The New York Giants & San Francisco Giants promote childhood obesity~ a real epidemic for the young!  The Cincinnati Reds promote drugs (downers & barbiturates).  And let’s not forget the Milwaukee Brewers~ doesn’t that go without saying? It’s a message to our kids to drink beer which = alcohol. After all!~ we can not tolerate anything that promotes drinking to our young; can we? But, hey~ it’s all in the name of Political Correctness; right?

But wait a minute~ don’t you think that the state of Oregon should change their Women’s Athletic Team name to something other than “Beavers”! Isn’t that offensive to women? But, hey~ it’s all in the name of Political Correctness; right?

In Obama’s United States of America, the needs of the many do NOT outweigh the needs of the few ~ or the one. Twisted principles from the socialist mindset of a twisted man! (Thanks, Mr. Spock!) ~ dfh

    WASHINGTON (AP) – A federal trademark board ruled Wednesday that the Washington Redskins nickname is “disparaging of Native Americans” and that the team’s trademark protections should be canceled, a decision that applies new financial and political pressure on the team to change its name.

    The 2-1 ruling from the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board came in a case that has been working its way through legal channels for more than two decades. It doesn’t force the team to abandon the name, but it comes at a time of increasing criticism of team owner Dan Snyder from political, religious and sports figures who say it’s time for a change.

    The Redskins quickly announced that they will appeal, and the cancellation for trademark protections will be on hold while the matter makes its way through the courts. That process could take years.

    It was the second time the board had issued an opinion on the case. A similar ruling from 1999 was overturned on a technicality in 2003.
