He (King George) has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. – Declaration of Independence, 1776.
During halftime of last night’s game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins, liberal sportscaster Bob Costas delivered a rant that can only be described as offensive to those of us who are fed up with being fed politically correct crap sandwiches. You see, Costas is riding the wave of manufactured left-wing outrage about how racist the “Redskins” name is.
Here’s the clip, which comes with a nausea alert (h/t GWP):
The owner of the NFL’s Washington Redskins – Dan Snyder – is coming under increasing pressure to change his team’s name to something less offensive. A woman named Amanda Blackhorse is one such individual and she is suing to have the name changed. So far, Snyder’s stood his ground. Perhaps he should point to the Declaration of Independence when making his case. Surely no one would have a problem with referring to “savages” as “Redskins”.
Maybe the team could just change its name to the Washington Indian Savages. Would that be better? Perhaps that would only serve to alienate the bad American Indians instead of an entire minority.
Those who are feigning outrage over this issue are equating this gross injustice to the plight of blacks, who’ve seen the pendulum swing so far since the civil rights era that race-baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are still making money from race hustling (Tawana Brawley, Duke LaCrosse team, and George Zimmerman all come to mind).
The Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution abolished slavery; the Fourteenth Amendment made blacks citizens of the U.S.; and the Fifteenth Amendment gave them the right to vote. The Civil Rights movement was intended to make those Amendments really matter and mean something. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 put America on a path to equality for blacks.
Others – like Jackson and Sharpton – saw industry. For some, the victories of the 1960’s represented an opportunity to exploit “white guilt” and to seek payback. Affirmative Action takes merit out of any hiring equation and replaces it with quotas. Congress has the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), which is inherently racist when applying the standard universally. As of 2009, it consisted of super majority of registered socialists. The absence of a Congressional White Caucus proves it. How about Black Entertainment Television (BET)? Ditto. Miss Black America? That too.
There are countless examples. This message is simple: Segregation is ok when we do it but not when you do it.
The Muslim community, which began setting down roots in America in the late 1950’s / early 1960’s watched the civil rights movement unfold; its leaders learned from it. They learned how to exploit minority status in much the same way that Jackson and Sharpton have done. To their credit, the Muslim Brotherhood community in America has been successful at it. It’s called Islamophobia. These hustlers are no different than race baiters, save for a much more nefarious endgame.
The hypocrisy in the Muslim community in the west involves the treatment of non-Muslims in the Middle East. Many of the Muslim Brotherhood groups in the U.S. are funded with Saudi money. The truth about religious minority persecution can be found in Saudi Arabia, not in the U.S. However, CAIR, ISNA, MSA, et. al. don’t benefit from drawing attention to real religious bigotry, only the manufactured kind which helps them push their agenda.
All across the Middle East, Christians are being persecuted, tortured, and murdered for their beliefs. Yet, here in America, the descendants of Indians who should have assimilated into the American culture long ago, feign outrage over an NFL team’s name.
In the spirit of patriotism and compromise, how about changing the name of the Washington Redskins to the Washington Indian Savages?
