Far from being the “lame duck” that his political foes promised he would be, our narcissistic emperor is only becoming more emboldened as the clock ticks down on his time in office. Following the release of the text of the globalist, job-murdering, sovereignty destroying Trans Pacific Trade Partnership (TPP) and the rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline, Barack Obama is looking to score cheap political points with liberals. It is crucial for the Democrats to be able to motivate their hodgepodge of squabbling identity based groups to go to the polls and vote for Queen Hillary and all down ticket Dems next November. So Mr. Obama is going to the well with one of the bleeding heart type’s favorite topics – forcing the NFL’s Washington Redskins to bow to the howls of the political correctness Nazis and change their nickname.
As the Hill reports “Obama: Teams should drop Native American mascots”:
Names and mascots of sports teams like the Washington Redskins perpetuate negative stereotypes of Native Americans, President Obama said Thursday.
Speaking at the White House Tribal Nations Conference, Obama said it’s important to “break stereotypes, I believe that includes our sports teams.”
“If you’re living in a society that devalues your culture or perpetuates stereotypes, you may be devaluing yourself,” Obama added. “We all need to do more to ensure that our young people feel supported and respected.”
The president praised sports apparel company Adidas for announcing a new initiative to help schools change Native American names and mascots by offering to design new logos and paying for part of the cost of new uniforms.
“I don’t know if Adidas made the same offer to a certain NFL team here in Washington, but they might want to think about that as well,” Obama said, making a reference to the Redskins.
Adidas, which is a sponsor of Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III, is participating in the White House conference.
Obama said the children of Native American heritage who attend the roughy 2,000 schools that still have such mascots could feel alienated by them.
The capital city’s pro football team has found itself under constant siege by the Democrats and their allies in recent years simply because it is pure red meat to an activist portion of the party base. But all of the sound and fury is a waste of time and money when once is reminded that the Redskins have had that team ever since they moved to D.C. way back in 1937 and even before that when they were known as the Boston Redskins. The bitching and carping about how “racist” the Redskins name supposedly is never seemed to get as much attention before Obama parked his mangy ass in the White House. Obama is such a charlatan and a con artist that it is astounding how anyone can take the man seriously but like all leaders of cults of personality – his followers won’t be swayed.
Obama and his minions are also now widening the scope of their thought crime crusade to include ALL teams with Native American nicknames. That athletic gear corporation Adidas is involved shows what this is all about too – money. Just imagine how much cash will be rolling in when millions of fans will be shelling out their hard-earned wampum for all new team merchandise with the updated names and logos of their favorite teams. Adidas will make a killing as will other authorized sports apparel manufacturers and they would owe the Democrats a big favor too when it comes time to pay them back with lots of big campaign contributions.
