A Soap Box Issue

I agree with our Native American population. I am highly insulted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins.

redskinsOne might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as warriors, but nay nay.

We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward.

Let’s ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves, and the Cleveland Indians.

If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.

The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of the militant Blacks from the 60’s alive. Gone. Offensive to the white folks.

The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war between the states that cost the lives of so many young men. Besides, the South shall rise again!

I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our football team names. It is totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres. The fact that there are birds on their shirts does not protect either the Arizona or the St. Louis Cardinals—gone!

Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged as their way of life. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children—and it is all about the children.

The Green Bay Packers and the St. Louis Rams promote gay men; wrong message to our children.

The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible spending habits; wrong message to our children.

The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity—a growing childhood epidemic; wrong message to our children.

The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates; wrong message to our children.

The Milwaukee Brewers—well—that goes without saying; wrong message to our children.

So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should.  A high priority directly behind efficiently managing our country’s health care.

Can I get an amen?

  1. While we’re at it why stop at football teams? Brownsville is a racially charged name. Caliph-ornia is an ill-disguised dig at Islam’s buildings. Waco represents an inappropriate reference to the mentally challenged.

    [Blog Admin: I think you mean whacko, not Waco.]


  2. And Chicago incorporates the syllable “Chic,” which is an affront to women. Dairy Queen (DQ) is a parody on drag queens within the G/L community. On and on it goes ad nauseam.


    1. Chicago is a male chauvinist observation, cryptically contained .’Chic’ refers to being fashionable, in style, young. Whjle ‘ago’ suggests it happened in the past. Men judging women by their age-typical! (Recently we had the assertion that the word ‘Obamacare’ was a racist term, devised by rich white men…surely this ‘explanation’ is of the same degree of lunacy as my cryptic Chicago? Once again you can’t satirise what is already high satire. Life imitates art…). PS-I am mentally challenged…


  3. Hall G. Deuce,

    I’m reading you as a shabby chic kind-o-guy. Am I on the bubble?

    Your being mentally challenged is a positive thing because we are as well. You’re in the right place, so let it rip my friend. As long as you clean up after yourself if you shit on the floor, we’ll be happy.

    Of course, I’m speaking for the collective staff in absentia here at the huge TMQ2 empire (soon to be the network), but I’m fairly confident they will concur. If not, you’ll get their feedback very soon.


  4. I do concur… most assuredly so… as I snatch the butted-out cigar of tolerance from the ashtray of political correctness… I set fire to the once cold end and inhale deeply… the stale fragrance of day’s gone bye surrounds me in a gossamer of despise for those who would pretend to know what is best for others… be damned! I’ll breathe and speak freely where and what I chose… furthermore… AMEN!
