Skip to comments.Ban the Redskins? Why stop there?

In reality this entire hoopla was not sprung up by native Americans, but a VERY small group of "progressives" who apparently split from their comrades who busy themselves protesting the pledge of allegiance, nativity displays and the like.
Dignitas News was able to infiltrate a high level meeting of the Progressive PC Police team, as they discussed the ongoing dispute over the Washington Redskins team mascot and branding. The following are excerpts from their strategy meeting:
NE Patriots-On top of being potentially anti-British, it harkens to our militaristic past. How about the New England Global Villagers?
NY Jets-Commercial air transit has been one of the engines of the capitalist machine. Besides, Manhattan (thats all that really counts in NY anyway, right) should have a team with a more soccer-ish sounding name, which should be the sport we like anyway, if America wasnt so....like...American! How bout the NY Style?
Miami Dolphins-Dolphins get stuck in the nets meant for tuna. Meat is murder. Lets just call them the Miami Heat like the basketball team. It will make it easier when we re-organize the major cities into communal camps.
Buffalo Bills-I know we cant do anything about the city name (yet) but somehow it just feels anti-Indian. After all, Bison (which is more proper, or Ta Ton Ka) was a noble staple of the native American diet, unlike the "settlers" who probably killed them for pleasure, gluttony and the NRA. How about the Buffalo Springfield? I just love "Whats that sound."
Pittsburgh Steelers-I know its in reference to the steel-men (Im sorry steel PERSONS) who worked the mills, but not only did men get rich off of steel, it just sounds like "steal," And since their colors are black, we dont want to imply that black people steal things. Let's honor the them by calling them Pittsburgh Unionists.
Cleveland Browns-Seriously? OMG. I mean, brown-pride is beautiful but lets not go there. How about Cleveland Undocumented Citizens. No, that's too long, the Cleveland Dreamers.
Houston Texans-Where does one begin? Oh well, I cant think of one, but go Wendy Davis!!
Tennessee Titans-"Titans" reminds me too much of the 1%. Lets flip the switch and call them the Occupiers. Or simply, Occupy Tennessee.
KC Chiefs-Oh goodness!! Not only is this offensive to native Americans (even if it isnt, lets just say it is) it also demeans the notion of the village, as we should all be equal, after all. Commissars is better, I think.
SD Chargers-Instead of honoring for-profit polluters, lets go with the San Diego Renewable Energy...or even better, the San Diego Solars!!
Oakland Raiders-This used to be okay, because our average idea of a pirate was always being white. That's not the case anymore, so we should reconsider. How about the Oakland Income Re-distributors?
SF 49'ers-Why celebrate the greedy gold rush? Let's reflect the city's diversity: San Francisco LGBT'ers!
GB Packers-While some smart aleck suggested we just re-shuffle their name to San Fran, I'm okay with the name, but we should add "Unionized" to it.
Minnesota Vikings-This one was a bit confusing. Although some comrades argued that it displays people of Norwegian decent as violent and barbaric, I figured it was okay due to the hue of their skin, but I was reminded we should be consistent, so the group voted for the Minnesota Frankens! Forward!
Dallas Cowboys-The name in itself is sexist and offensive. Cowperson's will do just fine.
Philadelphia Eagles-We have pretty much given animal names a pass (with notable exceptions) but "Eagles" are too often used as a symbol of national pride. Especially by those tea-baggers. We all love Elton John, so we are going with the Philadelphia Freedom!
NY Giants-Derogatory names are hurtful and a form of bullying. The New York People of Extraordinary Height!
New Orleans Saints-You didn't honestly think we would let this one pass? We have a separation of church and state in this country. And pretty much anything else, if we scream loud enough. Besides, we need reasons to remember our hatred of Bush. The New Orleans Katrina Victims.
TB Buccaneers-See Oakland for notes. The Tampa Gay's. Just because it fits.
As stated, animal named teams are exempt for now, but debate continues. We will conduct a "scientific poll" of the species involved and get back to you with results!!
Being of Swiss descent, I am offended by the term “New Englander”
Keep football, but do away with the NFL altogether, liberal organization that it has become.
Can’t go with Buffalo Springfield because that was the name of a very bad gun that almost lead to the extinction of the gentle Tatankas. How about something nice and light sounding while at the same time endorsing sustanable and renewable energy, the Buffalo Chips.
Is this supposed to funny or even humorous?
If they moved the Packers to San Francisco, would they become the Fudge Packers ????
(grinning madly, diving for cover)
Lol. The Cards aren’t even worth lampooning....
Lighten up, Francis...
Why don’t just number everything like good little Reds.
Prison # 14
If Dan Snyder was to play this smart and put Goodall in his place, he would say sure he would be willing to change the name, but only if he gets to keep all the merchandising money for the next 15 years, plus his share of the other teams merchandise revenue. The best strategy is to always hit them in the wallet.
California Golden Bears were named after a brutal bunch of Indian Killers from the 1890s.
Pray America wakes up
Heh, thanks dignitasnews.
