Skip to comments.Redskins Star QB RGIII Blasts ‘Tyranny of Political Correctness’ — The Left Freaks Out
Posted on 04/30/2013 8:21:01 PM PDT by Mozilla
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III on Tuesday complained about the tyranny of political correctness currently holding Americans hostage. His comments, posted on his official Twitter account, come as some people are demanding the Redskins change their team name because of its racist meaning.
In a land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness, Griffin tweeted. The comment may seem innocent, but it was enough to send the left into a frenzy, as noted on Twitchy.
Several of the criticisms hurled at Griffin seemingly accuse the QB of not knowing the definition of tyranny. Because they failed to understand the meaning behind his words, Griffin later felt compelled to explain to outraged Twitter users that tyranny has more than one meaning. He also followed up with a fitting quote following the angry response to his tweet: If we speak..we say it the wrong way If we do not speak we are cowards .
All that being said, Griffin also found a lot of support from other Twitter users.

Good for RG3.
Liking this guy more and more....
One minority says they are offended and the majority have to put up with the BS that minority is throwing.
It’s time somebody took up for the majority.
Good for him. The left deserves, and needs CONSTANT PUSHBACK.
A star is born.
The fellow is getting to close to the truth.
Liberals ARE The Tyrants.
If we speak..we say it the wrong way If we do not speak we are cowards .
He uttered an Inconvenient Truth...and the American Soviets freaked.
Sounds to me like this young man is following in the good Dr. Carson’s footsteps speaking about the disastrous effects of the PC police.
Good for RG3!
Bunch of B.S.
The Indian community needs to focus on Rez Indians drinking and doing Meth to death....and living in beat up leaning over trailers...And forget about the P.C. crap..!!
On the same day that the first queer athlete outs himself, RG3 steps up ... RG3 my new hero!
They’ve been busy making the Tsarnaevs into national heroes.
They want to send RG3 back to the Lieberal plantation tribal farm since he’s such a ‘corndog brotha’....
Yeah, “Eeeevil American Society made ‘em do it.”
A stellar young man from a fine family. He will have to deal with lesser characters in his life, unfortunately, but he will no doubt be able to handle their mewlings.
I really like this guy.
Maybe, the Redskins could change their team name to the Whiteskins.
Nah, keep the Redskins. Whiteskins would be racist, too.
Actually, I could care less what their team name is.
Hail to the Redskins
Hail RG III
Liberals on the warpath
RG III ain’t PC
So good to hear this after 2 days of HomoPhilia over this Gay NBA player
I am liking this guy more and more. I followed him on twitter the second one of my twitter buddies retweeted what he wrote..he seems like a good guy and of course the left had a little fit..for them, tolerance is all about supporting what THEY want..if you disagree with them they try to destroy you
Good for him. Still not happy about his coach puuting his career in danger last year. Boderline unethical behavior IMO.
I like this guy the more I hear about him.
“He uttered an Inconvenient Truth...and the American Soviets freaked.”
He uttered an Inconvenient Truth...and the American Fascists freaked.
There that’s better
They probably want it named after Obama. The Blueskins.
Accurate either way. He isn’t dancing to the tune.
Yeah, the “Green Eye Shadows” is a bit much to say.
No, that would be the Forewardskins.
The Name of professional teams (or any team, for that matter, excluding the “screaming squids”, “the dirt bags,”the bisciut, the fighting whities” etc. that are meant to be a joke) are meant to make you proud and install fear in the opposition. This liberal PC crap is BS.
“I really like this guy.”
Me too. Wish he was a Raider.
Anytime they want to change the name to the Washington Gefilte Fishes I’m fine with anything Jewish being associated with such a macho sport.
He is right, there is nothing offensive about redskins, it is a freaking compliment unless you are a stupid democrat
2. arbitrary, unreasonable, or despotic behaviour or use of authority
3. any harsh discipline or oppression
Sounds pretty accurate to me. Customs, traditions and public opinion can be tyrannical, too.
Of course they do. It's what they're trained to do when they're Pioneers (grades K-8) and when they're in the Komsomol (grade 9 thru College Bachelors Degree). The guy would be in deep doo-doo of they had an NKVD to whom they could denounce him (I fear thats a work in progress).
I love this guy, starting with a great Heisman speech
They could shorten it just to “The Bluelips”...
Yikes, where do I get me some gear?
I may become a Redskins fan, and living in Texas, that could mean my life.
Their war cry would be “Let me be clear!”
Good for him.
Of course it’s not the native Americans, it’s the wine swisher metrosexuals that want it changed
Golly! He just earned a fan. I mean, big time. IF they dont make him recant. And I speak as one of a long line of REAL redskins,”
Native Americans call themselves Indian or by the name of their nation. Never could understand those why we cant just use the French word, aborigines. We got here first.
For the PC folks, how about changing from the “Redskins” to the “Rednecks”. I think you would hear a different kind of bitching........flushing out both the floaters and sinkers in the lavatory receptacle.
LOL! He is making it harder for me to dislike him, being a Cowboys fan and all. I guess I can dislike Eli and the Gints even more The Iggles too
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are no longer using this logo:
so just change the colors to burgandy and gold, and voila! - no more racist identity.
“I can dislike Eli and the Gints even more The Iggles too”
Ya, thats what you call a given... err. Not that theres anything wrong with liking the Giants. (cough) or the Eagles for that matter, Its just, well, not kosher down here. Got a go, someone claiming to be Archie, is pounding at my door.
