AP: Obama open to name change for Washington Redskins

What business is it of his? This clown is not even a fan of American football and most likely doesn’t know how the game is played. Nor is he a member of any American Indian tribe; he’s a member of the Luo tribe in Kenya fercryinoutloud!

Considering Obama’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood and his silence about the ongoing Muslim Brotherhood pogroms against Christians and Jews, Obama is the last person who should be lecturing us about respecting other people’s sensitivities. I consider that not a mere offense but an outrage. There’s a huge difference between not liking a sports team name and seeing one’s co-religionists being subjected to torture, arson, kidnapping, mutilation, and slaughter.

The article at the link is from AP and carries the usual leftist bias. As such, it fails to acknowledge that American Indians are far from unanimous in objecting to team names, place names, and so forth that were originally intended to honor particular tribes or individuals, or American Indians in general. To assume that members of a particular ethnic group all feel the same way about an issue – now that truly IS an insult.

Change the name of the team to the Washington Camel Jockeys and see how he likes it.

And why on earth should he see that as preventing him from meddling in a matter that is so easily pigeonholed as “RACIST” and disrespectful of ethnic sensitivities?

This executive chair-warmer-in-chief clearly has nothing better to do now that his catastrophic healthcare program has, not just divided the whole nation, but made itself into the all time deal-killer and brought our entire government to a standstill.

Think how much better off we all would be if BHO dedicated every minute of his time to community organizing on the topic of renaming sports teams with more Politically Correct monickers. We should be so fortunate!
