We’ll never change the name,” he told USA Today “It’s that simple. NEVER — you can use caps.” Three cheers for Dan Snyder for standing up for himself. In this world of political correctness, where so many buckle under when attacked by the Liberal-Progressives, he is like a breath of fresh air among the many sheep that cannot stand up for what they truly believe.
As Dan Snyder watched his Redskins play the Cardinals last Sunday alongside Ben Shelly, president of the Navajo Nation, the left came out swinging, saying Mr. Shelly was a trader to the Indian nation and not Indian enough. Saying that the Navajo Nation president “entered office under a dark cloud” and “was accused of going behind the back of tribal leaders.” Where was the left when Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was running for office and claimed to be 1/32,000 Indian, or something to that effect. The left went crazy for her, but a president of an Indian nation is not Indian enough,
Also, Chippewa Cree tribesman Wade Colliflower says,”It’s somebody else who knows nothing about us trying to speak for us. It’s kind of an insult.” Colliflower calls the team name a “positive term” that honors Native Americans. While Patowomeck tribe Chief Robert Green told the Richmond Times Dispatch last year, “About 98 percent of my tribe is Redskins fans, and it doesn’t offend them, either.” Kevin Brown, Pamunkey chief, told the paper: “I like the uniforms. I like the symbol.” With 90% of American Indians in favor of the name Redskins, you have to wonder why the Liberal-Progressives are making a stink about it at all.
In a country where most Americans seemed to have turned into a bunch of wusses, Snyder is a breath of fresh air and I hope he stands firm. There are too many people in this country that run and hide any time the left confronts them, needless to say, that is why the country is in the shape that it is in today. We now have the FCC weighing in, threatening to fine anyone who uses the name Redskins, is freedom in this country being stripped away little by little?
Mental incompetent Harry Reid said on the floor of the Senate, “Daniel Snyder may be the last person in the world to realize this, but it’s just a matter of time until he is forced to do the right thing and change the name.” You noticed he said forced, why is the government forcing a private business owner to change its name, why is the government getting involved at all. While Reid sits on bill after bill that the house has passed and refuses to bring them to a vote, this is what he finds time to do, boy, I can’t wait until November when his ass will be gone. Isis, Ebola, Economy, Reid has more important things to do, like forcing business owners to change something that it is their Constitutional right to do, like name their business what they want to name it.
Yes Mr. Snyder, you are my new hero, I wish there were more Americans like you. But I still have a little fear, a fear that you might cave to the morons on the left who have nothing better to do then cause trouble where there is none, I hope you stay strong.
