Adios to the Redskins

The NFL goes full SJW:
The Washington NFL franchise, 10 days after announcing that a “thorough review” of its name will be conducted, has made a preliminary decision.

At the end of the current review, the old name will be retired.

“On July 3rd, we announced the commencement of a thorough review of the team’s name,” the franchise announced in a statement. “That review has begun in earnest. As part of this process, we want to keep our sponsors, fans and community apprised of our thinking as we go forward.

“Today, we are announcing we will be retiring the [current] name and logo upon completion of this review.”
It's going to be amusing to see all the journalists trying to thread the needle explaining why the Redskins had to go, but the Chiefs don't, right up until the narrative shifts again and the Chiefs become the target du jour.

What's insane about the appeasers, is they could have changed name to Warriors but kept the logo, which was not cartoonish or mocking, and was actually designed by an actual Black feet tribe member. I just read the artists surviving family is pissed.

Since there are pedophiles all over Hollywood and professional sports, and since the team resides in DC, I think the new name should be the Washington Epsteins. With the Pedo temple from his island as the logo. This would seem appropriate.

Maybe the Washington Redskins can become the Washington Indigenous. At least until the very name of Washington is declared racist and must be banned.

Some Dindu bint at the Bezos Post wrote recently that the Texas Rangers had to lose their name. A team name shows honor and respect, but the Texas Rangers were Racissss whites who killed Indians and blacks. So the name Redskins shows honor and respect? Not so fast, White-eyes.

I remember when the Washington Bullets had to change their name to the Washington Wizards because naming your NBA team "Bullets" encourages black kids to shoot each other, apparently.

The Texas Rangers are on the radar now. A Ghana Born Fake American Who doubles as the Washington post global opinions editor, has stated that she knows the true history of the Rangers now and wants the name changed.
So when they are done with inanimate objects and team names when do they actually get to the flesh and bone people who don’t agree with them?

Yeah, the Chiefs will be the next target. Two things they have going for them: A) they don't need a new stadium or any kind of deal for a place to put one, and B) Arrowhead is packed with 70,000+ rabid Chiefs fans for every home game. And a third thing related to the second: KC is not DC, which has driven out all its white, working-class population and replaced them with blacks and the SWPL crowd. DC doesn't have many hard-core football fans anymore, but it does have a lot of lobbyists who would like to treat colleagues in a suite.

None of that will stop the SJWs from taking a run at the Chiefs, of course. They've been bitching for years that Chiefs fans do the tomahawk chop and get a pass for it. They'll find the Chiefs to be a harder target.

Here in Trudeaupia, the Edmonton Eskimos are under pressure to change their name, which goes back over 100 years. I was as big a fan as they ever had, but I stopped going to their games after they and the CFL started promoting sodomy, and they have now shown that they would rather lose games and players than offend the alphabet perverts. They recently cut a kick returner named Christion Jones for the heinous offense of tweeting (gasp!) that men shouldn't be with men and women and women shouldn't be with women. He predictably cucked and apologized, with the predictable result that it did no good. If the league folds, I'll be saying good riddance.

You, my friend, have a future in comedy. When have conservatives done anything? They'll pay their money, grumble a bit, but still plop their butts in the seats and bravely push through whatever black power/whitey bad half time show is already being planned. Give it a few years and they'll be convinced of the wisdom of having changed the name, but to be nicer to those poor black folk, it should have been sooner.

It's only wrong WHEN white people do it. All other instances still don't matter.

Now that would be funny -- if every nationalist started making comments to the Jewish community to stop their culture-war bullshit by starting with, "As a fellow Jew...."



If they are "Fellow White People" Then of course we are "Fellow Jews".

Suggestions:

* The Washington Rosy Complexions

* The Washington Native American Persons of Color

* The Washington Traditional Owners of the These Lands

* The Washington Formerly Eurasian Peoples of the Bering Strait

* The Washington Wise Indigenous Peoples in Contact With The Earth-Mother Spirits of Gaia

.... none of them quite have the same ring to it...

It's a work in progress!

Wonder if the true blue Washington REDSKINS fans will rise up in anger and demand the name be kept?

They've been doing that for 20 years, but there just aren't enough of them anymore. Season ticket holders have been cancelling in droves and there are tens of thousands of empty seats at games, not because of the name, but because of the losing and bad management. You can't threaten to withhold support you already took away. The holdouts are all Gen-X or older, because no one younger has ever seen a Redskins team worth fighting over.

Redskins fans are just beaten down. People who were die-hard name-defenders a few years ago now see a change as inevitable and just want it to be over. They've been called racists for 20+ years, and have no wins to make it worth it. If you're the contrarian type, you can get a charge out of being a holdout; but most people aren't, especially in a population like DC in 2020. So even though they don't like it, they tell themselves maybe it'll be a good thing: half their neighbors and co-workers won't hate them for wearing team gear anymore, and maybe somehow it'll translate into wins.

Of course, they're wrong. The people who currently hate them for having the name will just hate them for having had the name in the past, because it's never really been about the name. But they don't understand that, and the relentless media pressure makes it seem inevitable anyway.

Times are right for some merry pranksters to take on Notre Dame. Perhaps a groundswell of support for changing the Fighting Irish to the Friendly Irish. After that, the Florida State Seminoles? We've gone from Napoleon's advice to "never interrupt the enemy when he is making a mistake" to "goad your opponents into overreach".

After that, the Florida State Seminoles?

They tried in the first go 'round 15 or so years ago and the Tribe - who ironically was heavily black and mullato - said it was honorable and they had no problem with it. Likely for more rational reasons:

Yeah, the media are all claiming there's a bombshell coming, but no one's leaking any details the way they usually do. They're sitting back and letting WaPo have it. Which is probably because a lot of people want Bezos to buy the team.
