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.

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.
