NEW poll: 90% of Native Americans not offended by Redskins name — “Only white liberal concern trolls care”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Huge story in the Washington Post: "New poll finds 9 in 10 Native Americans aren’t offended by Redskins name.

The Washington Post put eight reporters on the story. Obviously it’s important to their readers — the Redskins is their NFL team. But it’s also a political issue in D.C., with attempts to ban the name.

And this poll shows real Indians don’t care. White, liberal, virtue-signalling concern trolls who care.

I would never call an Indian a redskin. It literally describes someone by their skin colour. But the vast majority of Indians in the United States don’t seem to mind in this case.

And I think the reason is obvious: because that word is not being used today, by the NFL in hurtful hateful ways. Now it’s being used as a symbol of strength and pride by an NFL team.

Team owner Dan Snyder often invites senior U.S. Indian leaders to sit with him in the luxury suite to watch the games. Of course they accept. They can see for themselves tens of thousands of people cheering for something called the Redskins. It’s fun. Or it’s supposed to be. Except for white liberals.

Every Indian I know wears Indian-themed clothing. My favourite Indian Chief, Clarence Louie of the Osooyoos band, love wearing his Indian brand motorcycle jacket.

If there were a team called the Toronto Jews, of course I’d wear all their gear.

And as this Washington Post graphic puts it, quoting Randy Whitworth, from the Flathead Indian Reservation in Montana, “Let’s start taking care of our people and quit worrying about names like Washington Redskins.”

I can tell you first hand: we don’t care. It’s only a loud minority of Bill Maher viewers who do.

I wouldn’t put my kids in organized sports now. Not counting score, is the same thing as not failing kids in school. Socialism has destroyed the coming generations. If people kept their kids out of organized sports, due to the stupid rules, then things would change.

It’s only gonna get worse folks!
Today’s kids can’t even play a game of soccer without being made to feel shame for beating their opposing team.
They don’t beat them to show them who the master is but simply because they are a better team.
We cannot offend people any longer . . . even in areas where it does not matter.
This liberal doctrine extends to schools. Let little Johhny move to the next grade even though he can’t spell his own name since we don’t want to hurt his feelings.
Geez Louise, what about his feelings when he grows up and can’t get a job because he still can’t spell his friggin name? How does he feed his family (since he has not learned that there are consequences to his actions and that the educational system says he can be as permissive as he wants)?
Ah yes, there is always welfare, EI and failing that, a life of crime.
In this scenario, the loser (little Johnny who still can’t spell his own name) is actually a winner. He wins the jackpot . . . free medical, free dental, free opthalmic care, roof over his head, three shares a day, no need to work and all decisions made by the people supervising the penitentiary. His family? Of course, the state will continue to care for them.

Beautiful world we live in.

McGill University sports teams are usually called “Redmen”. The uniforms are red as red is the colour of McGill. The forever offended say this is wrong as it is an insult to the Indian population. Just give it a break!

What next, the Ottawa RedBlacks are an insult to Indians and Black people? Its the colours of their uniforms. If you look hard enough, everything can be offensive to anyone.

The fact that most aboriginals don’t have a problem with “Redskins” is irrelevant to the professionally offended. Do the special snowflakes really want to humiliate themselves by inviting a sarcastic and embarrassing debate on the choice between “Waterboarders” and “Wagonburners?”
There’s an old proverb that fits here, “don’t try to fix what ain’t broke.”

White, liberal, virtue-signalling concern trolls, with the exception of Trump, can also be applied to White Conservative politicians. -

I.e. Wiggers, or modern day cowardly, self-loathing, knowing their place in not willing to stand up for themselves and reverse discrimination bigotry against them Uncle Toms

deborah ,i heard a rant from a sports show host on radio a while back spouting off on the air waves what an insult that name is to the natives, i asked him what was wrong with it ,he said it is inappropriate in today’s world , i more or less told him BS i told him in my opinion the name is a sign of respect,he didn’t agree with me ,this same person also won’t say merry christmas and happy new year,i asked why , he said it is insulting to other beliefs , i said so you are tossing our canadian traditions to accommodate new immigrants,any way we agreed to disagree and i wished him merry christmas and happy new year. my wife is native ,her and her family are football fans i asked if they were insulted by the name ,they didn’t understand why people were making an issue about this,i think it is all about the social unjust warriors brain washing who ever they can, especially the people with the white guilt complex for wrongs they had nothing to do with.

Sanity prevails in the general population. It’s those who insist on stirring up race troubles that are the insane ones.
