Only the ADL Could Turn the ‘Redskins’ Name into a Jewish Issue

America as a melting pot is the biggest threat to Jews, who want to be so politically correct that even the name “Redskins” draws the ADL to ruin the party just when Americans finally have a fun issue.
This is Jewish Press blogger Daniel Greenfield's suggestion for a new name for the Washington Redskins.

If everyone is so super sensitive to anyone having an identity or, God forbid, remembering that it is an ethnic or religious group, the Dallas football club should get rid of the name “Cowboys” because it a smear on Westerners as gun-toting settlers who took the law into their own hands in the name of Manifest Destiny. Oy, what would Thomas Friedman had written?

The American Melting Pot requires a single identity of no identity.

If Obama really wants to be politically correct, he can tell the New Orleans team to stop using the term “Saints” because it does not include rabbis and Imams.

The “Falcons” of Atlanta, the “Cardinals” of Arizona, along with the Panthers, Colts, Jaguars, Eagles and a host of other teams that offend vegetarians and defenders of animal rights should do some soul-searching.

If all of this sounds too far-fetched, hold your breath, because that is where the Melting Pot is headed.

As for the “Redskins,” Walt “Red Hawk” Brown, the chief of Virginia’s Cheroenhaka Nottoway Tribe that was recognized by the Virginia General Assembly in 2010 but is not federally recognized , told a Richmond, Virginia television station, that it’s “a great honor” when Native American words are used in popular culture.

“Why would my president says [Redskins is] is offensive to him?” Brown asked. “What’s offensive to me is this: we have 11 state recognized tribes, and he hasn’t done one thing to get those tribes federally recognized.”

But why listen to him? He’s not Jewish.

Unless his real name is “Whitefish.”

    Since when is the ADL a Jewish organization?

  2. muman613 says:

    ADL has strayed far from it’s stated purpose of being an organization concerned about antisemitism into a liberal leftist platform for the rights of every criminal. I do not support ADL’s pro-muslim pro-gay message and suggest all Jews distance themselves from this vestigial organization.

  3. Lee Warren says:

    The Word Washington should be dropped from the Wa. Redskins name because it's making them look bad. Kudos to Mr Snyder. The obama dog is nothing more than a race baiter on this.

  5. benakiva37 says:

    The ADL was established for two purposes:(1)”to stop the defamation of the Jewish people,” and (2) “to secure justice and fair treatment for all.”  Google “ADL.” The second part would, indeed, include use of the racist “Redskin” name.

  6. muman613 says:

    benakiva37 Is there any non-Jewish anti-defamation organization which is concerned with the plight of the Jewish people, or is it always the Jewish people who must stand up for the rights of the others? Look how great the Jewish support for civil rights of ‘African-Americans’ went? Do they support Israel? Not so much… How about the support ADL gives to gays? All the gay organizations support BDS and other anti-Israel groups. JEWS MUST SPEND MORE EFFORT SUPPORTING  JEWISH ORGANIZATIONS… Otherwise nobody else will stand up for us.

  7. Gil Shapiro says:

    What a great article,ADL,who?

  8. Cody Flecker says:

    This is the same ADL who sent its President Burton Joseph down to Cuba on a mission right on Yom Kippur thinking no one would notice. What a bunch of idiots to make an issue over a name that enhances Native Americans.

  9. Alan Kardon says:

    The Washington Redskins have decided to drop the WASHINGTON from their name because they are embarrassed.

  10. Anonymous says:

    I am surprised, I heard that Obama is not a american born, he is kenian, how the democrats didn't look this, or they are living in a farce, who cares the one is black, white yellow, or red, is stupid, this kenian ape must be out.

  11. Washington Foreskins, in honor of all the dicks in Washington DC. :-P

  12. Since "Redskin" is the equivalent of the "N" word, how would you feel about the Washington K—-s. Have you absolutely no capacity for empathy?

  13. "Ape?" Really? You racist arse.

  14. Les Legato says:

    Abe Foxman, moron, meet Michael Blum, brainwashed jino,

    The Redskins owner went to the top Indian tribe leaders in the U.S. and they all told him TO KEEP USING THE NAME.

    Your using "blum" is an embarrassment to all real Jews.

    "“I’ve got to say that if I were the owner of the team and I knew that there was a name of my team, even if it had a storied history, that was offending a sizable group of people, I’d think about changing it,” President Barack Obama said.

    From the "president" who consciously adopted an islamic name, when islam is responsible for selling millions of black slaves to the Europeans, for slaughtering 80 million Hindus, and has for nearly 14 centuries made the nazis and communists look like amateurs.

    Shut up and learn how to be a real Jew and a real American, instead of one of the politically correct, leftist sheep.

  15. Dear Les Legato – You seem to be a HINO. Human in name only. What "Tribal Leaders?" Did you "adopt" the name you were given at birth? Why don't you try to understand the viewpoints of others? What makes you such a mean person. Oh, and by the way, your viewpoint is and will continue to become more in more marginalized in America.. Say goodnight, Gracie.
