Here is Erick Erickson explaining why if the Washington Redskins stop having a racist team nick-name, it sucks for racists.
A recent poll showed more than 70 percent of Redskins fans opposed changing the team name. More so, a majority of Americans have not found the team name to be offensive. Even more telling, there are numerous sports teams on Indian reservations around the United States that use the name Redskins. When the team name and logo were created, Native Americans participated.
Citations omitted. History dubious.
But the patent office has ruled that, at creation decades ago, it was commonly understood that the word "redskins" was offensive. This conjuring of convenient facts decades after the fact is a favorite game of professional victims.
Yeah, there's a lot of dough in being irritated by rich white people getting richer off stereotyping you. What?
It gets more whut...?
An honest person would concede that most Americans do not find the word redskins offensive and an honest person would concede that at its creation the trademarks for the Washington Redskins were not considered offensive. But these are different times. The United States now has a black president. The nation, as older generations pass and newer generations take power, is moving beyond race as an issue. Professional victims must now work even harder to find racist things to get worked up about.
An honest person will tell you that you are a fucking incoherent weirdo.
Please do gibber on...
These guilt-ridden children of privilege and their cousins -- the already rich, white liberal -- could care less to walk a day in someone else's shoes. They could care less to connect a world outside their bubble. They have decided they are the standard bearers of a secular moral code and will punish those who deviate. In their desire for diversity they dress the same, eat the same, read the same and tweet "Game of Thrones" spoilers. When the facts do not suit their demands, they conjure convenient new facts that may fly in the face of reality, but anyone who points that out is labeled a bigot, racist or conservative.
In another age, these people would be called busy bodies. At the end of the 20th century, they were called liberals. Prior to World War II, they were called progressive, but too many of them embraced Hitler's eugenics programs and Stalin's pogroms. They suddenly shifted to being called liberals and only now, having ruined that label at the end of the 20th century, are transitioning back to progressive.
(1) I am working class. I have always worked. I am a white liberal who was not born rich, and I worked a shitload of crap jobs before saving up for grad school.
Working shit jobs in and around NYC, I talked and worked with everyone and everybody from everywhere. We are all the same: we love our families and hate shit jobs.
(2) The "Redskins" nickname is cruel and vicious. That the people who like being cruel and vicious approve of the name is a weakness of the morons who won't change the name.
(3) Son of Erick goes to HitlerStalin. What a tit.
