Name Calling

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Monday, January 14, 2013 in AssHatery, Idiotarians

Yesterday, we were watching the football play-offs.

*shakes fist at The Texans*

Anyway, I began to think about all the hullabaloo going around as regards sports teams names. Y’all recall the mascot for the University of Illinois, Chief Illini, was removed because it was considered a “hostile or abusive mascot”. There are several groups wanting to remove the “Native American” names from sports teams. Washington Redskins, Cleveland Indians, Florida State Seminoles… I don’t get it. How is naming your team after a brave group of people known to fight for their cause and sacrifice their lives in the name of freedom a bad thing??┬áDo you really want a sports team with a weak sounding name? Why not rename the Redskins for the most prevalent thing in DC? How about The Washington Politicians, or The Washington Criminals, or maybe The Washington Sewers?

Personally, I vote for The Washington Pussies.

Sitting Bull

Apparently, those same people, mostly younger people with Native American background, have no problems with the Oklahoma Sooners or the San Fransisco 49ers. And yet, what did the Sooners and the 49ers do to the existing Native American populations in those areas?

I swear to The Maker, some people just don’t have the sense God gave a box of hair clippings.

    Chief Illiniwek was (and remains) popular. I also don’t think it was any Native tribes or groups that got him axed, but Jessie Jackson’s thugs.

    So now instead of a positive INdian figure, Chambana has nothing, really. They’re still the Fighing Illini, IIRC, but no actual mascot.

    So, yeah. Dumb.

    This is about impotent imbecilic weenies getting off and validating themselves by pushing their betters around. They know they couldn’t make a tee ball team much less the varsity so their reaction is to attack the identity of any entity to which they can’t gain admission. If they were to realize their wet dream no competition would exist.

    Washington Crackheads. Considering the legislation and policy in the area, it’s the best explanation and best name for their team.

    I’ve long decried the racist name of the Washington DC pro football team.

    That’s why I call them the Foreskins.

    I’m sensitive that way.

    Meant to say, their full name is The Oh and Foreskins.

    The DC NBA team used to be called the Washington Bullets. Maybe the Chicago squad can coopt it.
