The Real Drivers of the Washington Redskins Name Change: Wealthy White Liberals

This was not at all the outcome the WaPo had hoped to obtain. – A poll commissioned by the Washington Post in 2016 found that 9 out of 10 American Indians (who all the wealthy white liberals love to call “native Americans” in hushed tones as they take a sip of their chardonnay produced from former Indian lands in the Napa Valley) are not at all offended by the name “Washington Redskins.”

Wait, what?

I swear I’m not making this up. Here’s an excerpt from the WaPo piece about the poll:

Nine in 10 Native Americans say they are not offended by the Washington Redskins name, according to a new Washington Post poll that shows how few ordinary Indians have been persuaded by a national movement to change the football team’s moniker.

The survey of 504 people across every state and the District reveals that the minds of Native Americans have remained unchanged since a 2004 poll by the Annenberg Public Policy Center found the same result. Responses to The Post’s questions about the issue were broadly consistent regardless of age, income, education, political party or proximity to reservations.

Among the Native Americans reached over a five-month period ending in April, more than 7 in 10 said they did not feel the word “Redskin” was disrespectful to Indians. An even higher number — 8 in 10 — said they would not be offended if a non-native called them that name.

[End]

So, if that’s the case – and there is no newer research indicating that prevailing attitudes among the U.S. American Indian population has changed in the past four years – why is the ownership of the Redskins now in the process of abandoning the team name for something else?

Why, to appease wealthy white liberals and the news media, of course. Why else would they do it? There is literally no other reason for it.

Full disclosure: I’m a Dallas Cowboys fan, and could not care less what the Washington football franchise chooses to call itself. The Cowboys will just keep beating them 62% of the time, as they have always done.

But at some point, we all have to step back and recognize the undeniable fact that every issue we have seen emanating from the political left in America for the past century is generated by the terminally offended wealthy white liberal class. Every one of them.

Think about it: During the course of this COVID-19 pandemic, who have all of the “Karens” been? What is their near-100% profile? Wealthy and white liberal women. Their male counterparts are by and large wealthy and white liberal men.

When you viewed the scenes of the Antifa/BLM- staged riots on your TV screens throughout the month of June, who made up the vast majority of the rioters? Weren’t 8 or 9 out of every 10 of them white? What about all the “peace” rallies you saw, with the thousands of participants engaging in chants and self-flagellation normally seen in extreme religious cults? Weren’t pretty much all of white?

When you look at the mug shots of the hundreds of Antifa/BLM terrorists who have been arrested by the Department of Justice of the past few weeks, what is the prevailing profile? Isn’t it a bunch of pasty-faced young white adults? Sure they are.

These are the children of upper-middle-class to upper-class white parents, technically adult children who have no inner values and are so wracked with the guilt of their privileged upbringings that they spend their time desperately seeking ways to identify with people who have real problems and blaming them all on “society.”

Most American Indians couldn’t care less about the name “Washington Redskins” for the simple fact that they have more pressing things in their lives to spend their time worrying about. Only the wealthy white liberal class in this country has the time and the freedom to spend their waking hours obsessing over whether or not the name of a sports team might be offensive to someone else.

Now, take a look at the talking heads you see on cable TV channels like CNN and MSNBC, and who do you see? By and large, a bunch of wealthy white liberals. MSNBC’s prime time lineup looks like a family reunion on Nantucket Island. Take Don Lemon out of the mix, and the same can be said for CNN. These are by and large the offspring from very wealthy northeastern liberal families, families with names like Cuomo and Vanderbilt and O’Donnell. A bunch of wealthy white liberals telling you that you are all horrible people who root for sports teams with bad names, like the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Indians and Atlanta Braves, none of which are offensive to the vast, overwhelming majority of actual American Indians.

The Braves management has announced that they’ll probably keep their team name, but they’re gonna ban the “tomahawk chop” cheer that has become ubiquitous at Braves home games. They’re doing this not to protect the sensibilities of American Indians, but to avoid the ire of the wealthy white liberal class that dominates the American news media, not to mention their class of season ticket holders. The Cleveland Indians abandoned their logo of Chief Wahoo years ago to appease all the wealthy white liberal outrage.

The change of the Redskins name is a fait accompli at this point, and the new name will be announced very soon. I’d prefer the “DC Swamp Rats” personally, but rumor is that “Washington Warriors” is the current favorite to prevail. That is, unless some think tank dominated by the offspring of wealthy white liberal families with Ivy League educations finds some reason to find the word “Warriors” offensive.

When the new name is finally announced, wealthy white liberals will cheer and raise their glasses of chardonnay in a toast to their own fine sensibilities. Meanwhile, the vast majority of American Indians won’t even notice.

That is all.

Today’s news moves at a faster pace than ever. Whatfinger is my go-to source for keeping up with all the latest events in real time.

    Assuming baseball ever comes back, I’m fine with banning the tomahawk chop simply because it is incredibly annoying, and furthermore the Atlanta fans stole it outright from the Florida State Seminoles (where it will no doubt be banned as well).

    I go much further back with this stuff. I grew up in Hanover where in the early 1970’s Dartmouth College became probably the first institution to ban the Indian mascot and chant due to political pressure. I still remember the wahoo chant and still have the Dartmouth Indians sweatshirt.

    The replacement (Big Green) was indescribably pathetic. Expect the same with the Washington football franchise. Snyder is a fool–he has blown up a financial golden goose in a doomed effort to appease the Jacobian mobs. But then again the entire NFL will soon be broke.

      Pretty sure FL. State already banned their tomahawk chop. I do think Dartmouth acted first, although Stanford was not far behind.

      1. phineas gage - July 14, 2020

        That’s true–I think it nearly in sequential years.

        Dartmouth was under pressure because the institution was initially founded as a school for Indians. But it just goes to show that none of this is new. What is new is the way we are all disgracefully caving to it as a nation.

      The NFL is dead; the corpse simply hasn’t quite stopped twitching.

  2. Rick - July 14, 2020

    Personally, I am not offended but if they are going to change their name I think it should be the Washington Foreskins because they have become a bunch of dicks.

    1. carlosdangler - July 14, 2020

      LOL!! Good one!
      That puts my idea for a name change to DC Comics to shame.
      I was on the side of the Redskins probably being racist until I kept seeing Native Americans wearing Redskins hats. It seems that many were proud to call them “their team”.

  3. Chet Gerstenbluth - July 14, 2020

    Being somewhat of a traditionalist I always advocated that the NFL football team the Washington Redskins keep the Redskins name even though numerous people found the name offensive.

    My opinion changed when I attended a Native-American festival. Speaking with a Native-American presenter I asked him if he was offended by the term Indian. He shrugged and said no, that even reservations in America are called Indian reservations.

    Then he added that many of his friends refuse to handle a twenty-dollar bill because President Andrew Jackson’s portrait is on the bill, as President Jackson in 1830 signed the Indian Removal Act which resulted in the Trail of Tears.

    I then asked him about the Washington Redskin name controversy. He teared up telling me that he vehemently objected to the Redskin name because in the 1600s colonists would get an extra bounty for the skin of every Indian that they killed.

      I understand where you are coming from (and the Chief Wahoo emblem of the Cleveland Indians was even more blatant), but the point is that peaceful resolution is not at all the goal of the marxist mobs. The goal is to destroy the target.

      It is pure Alinsky politics: isolate the target, paralyze it, destroy it.

      There is no reasoning with this mob. You either fight it or you are obliterated.

      Snyder would have been much more respected for standing up to it, although he was no doubt under heavy pressure from other NFL owners. To paraphrase Churchill, ‘you chose dishonor, and you will have war’.

      One of the in 10 Native Americans offended by the Washington Redskins name was the Indian part of Williams & Ree Comedy Band duo.
      Ree told us his objection was to the ‘Washington’. Didn’t like being associated with losers.

    Give me your children and I will take your country… some guy said that… a communist dictator who killed millions… nothing to see here

    Its a war

    “…every issue we have seen emanating from the political left in America for the past century is generated by the terminally offended wealthy white liberal class. Every one of them.”

    And many of the terminally offended wealthy white liberal class are what were once known as Rockefeller Republicans or limousine liberals who all went to the big universities and had no problem being a perpetual minority party in congress with only about 135 -150 house seats out of 437!

    They got all the perks of being quietly woke and by always being in the severe minority, neve had to accomplish anything legislatively; Gingrich called them the comfortable caucus. That loser mentality was paused by Reagan for six or so years, Gingrich for about four, and now Trump. These three men were and are not really supported by the liberal Republicans you speak of which is why the ‘opposition” party is infested with RINOs to this day and it is why it almost always disappoints.

    Reagan said we don’t need a new political party to replace the Republican Party, we just need to revitalized GOP with a bold agenda and clear differences… I’m not sure there are enough strong fearless conservatives on today’s GOP to transform it into a true opposition (to the left) party.

    The Republicans never win elections; the Democrats lose to the generally weak GOP alternative when they go too far. When the Dems run any kind or a ‘moderate’ sounding or otherwise appealing candidate (BJ Clinton and ‘the One’) they are guaranteed to lose, and no one in power running the GOP seems at all concerned or upset with losing to two of our most recent WORST presidents – the seem like they rather welcome it.

    And the Rockefeller Republican “establishment” GOP did not support Reagan in 1976, held their nose in 1980 and was forced to support him in 1984. The same goes for Trump.

    PS: They were just fine with both Bushes whether they won or lost. Truly a pathetic party. I’ll have more commentary on this soon.

    “Their male counterparts are by and large wealthy and white liberal men.” You forgot “eunuchs” and “cucks.”

    1. carlosdangler - July 14, 2020

      Too Tall, you nailed it!
      I wish there was a way to up-vote comments on here.
      So many awesome comments every day!

    When will the “Fighting Irish” change their name? It is based on a negative stereotype of drunken Irishmen who then get into a fight. And while we’re at it how about that “Patty Wagon” name?

    1. Boarwild - July 14, 2020

      Steve – think you mean “Paddy”. It got that name BC the police were locking up so many Irish drunks & gangsters.

      It’s funny: we associate NYC gangsters with Italians probably BC of movies like “The Godfather” et al, but it was the Irish before them that really created a lot of mayhem & started it all.

      And for pointing that out the Irish mob is now calling for my head –

      One step ahead of the mob – I’m outta’ here! ;<)

    2. carlosdangler - July 14, 2020

      Notre Dame was founded by French monks and named after a cathedral in Paris.
      Question: Why did they become known as the Fighting Irish?
      Answer: There is no such thing as the Fighting French.

    How about the Washington Queefs? Owner Snyder folded like a dollar store lawn chair because of corporate sponsors Nike, Pepsi, FedEx and their $600 billion.
    Ron Rivera will get some input in the new name. I don’t follow the No Fans Left league but it will be funny if the Washington Queefs go 0-16.
    These woketards really fancy themselves are revolutionaries fighting the man when they are the man.
    There is no czar riding around in a gold and diamond encrusted chariot while they dig in dumpsters for scraps and they are the laughingstock of the world.

    1. Gregg - July 14, 2020

      Look for Snyder to really show his wokeness by signing Whathisdick which should ensure an 0-16 season; maybe 1-15 as the NYGs are just as bad.

      I found out today I’ll save over $80.00 per month ditching the comcast/xfinity cable and just keep the internet. I watch a lot of AHC and the Science type Channels. Their BLM support PSAs on all their networks are sickening beyond belief; and the “We’re all in this together” crap too. I’m going to start to do a lot of book – real books – reading, and maybe write one too.
