“Redskins” Racial Hot Button: Worthy of Presidential Angst During Crisis?

By John W. Lillpop
 
As every one knows,  Barack Hussein Obama has a full plate, and then some.  And because his better half is  an unhinged food hypocrite with brass knuckles and a cold heart,  the community organizer’s plate is always  loaded with carrots, celery, cottage cheese, plain lettuce, fat-free yogurt and other non-savory bulk that most school children would refuse to eat.

Thus, the only spice in Barack’s bleak  life is achieved by making life miserable for the greatest  number of  American people possible.  

 
At the very  top of Obama’s misery to inflict  list is  dumping the best health-care system on the planet into the Potomac,  in favor of a Marxist health-care system that the majority of Americans, including labor unions and young people, simply detest.

The One’s plate is also loaded with plans for a war against Syria which, much like Obamacare, nobody but BHO much favors; he oversees a wretched economy which continues to evade recovery and good jobs; a nearly $17 trillion dollar deficit which, when half that amount in 2006, prompted then- Senator Obama to attack the Bush administration as ‘irresponsible’ and ‘unpatriotic’ for proposing to raise the debt ceiling; and of course, The One  works non-stop to keep the government shutdown with a keen eye on the 2014 elections and his dream of returning Nancy Pelosi  as Speaker of the House, from where she can complete the nefarious transformation of America into a third-world, Marxist hell hole. 

With all of that, plus several “phony scandals” to manage, The One barely has enough time to work on creating the daily lies needed to BS the American people about his ill-conceived Obama Care.

Still, whenever BHO finds a spare moment, or two, free from proliferating the vile rhetoric which he uses when his poll numbers  erode, he always manages to weigh in on an issue sure to whet the sinister appetites of low information dupes, commonly known as OmabaMites. 

Namely, racial politics.

BHO’s latest racial canard involves the earth-shattering question of whether or not the Washington football team should be allowed to call themselves “Redskins,” as they have done for the past 80 years.

As reported at the reference, BHO comes down on the side of finding racial abuse and discrimination wherever it can be found, or, if need be, fabricated: 

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says he would “think about changing” the Washington Redskins’ name if he owned the football team as he waded into the controversy involving a word that many consider offensive to Native Americans.

Obama, in an interview with The Associated Press, said team names such as the Redskins offend “a sizable group of people.” He said that while fans get attached to the names, nostalgia may not be a good enough reason to keep them in place.

“I don’t know whether our attachment to a particular name should override the real legitimate concerns that people have about these things,” he said in the interview, which was conducted Friday.

An avid sports fan, Obama said he doesn’t think Washington football fans are purposely trying to offend American Indians. “I don’t want to detract from the wonderful Redskins fans that are here. They love their team and rightly so,” he said.

But the president appeared to come down on the side of those who have sharply criticized the football team’s name, noting that Indians “feel pretty strongly” about mascots and team names that depict negative stereotypes about their heritage.

Other professional sports teams have Indian names, including football’s Kansas City Chiefs and baseball’s Atlanta Braves and Cleveland Indians.”

Meanwhile, as BHO ponders the imponderable impact of the Redskins moniker on the fragile psyches of millions of ultra-sensitive government dependents, the nation continues to fall into the abyss of third-world dysfunction and decline.

Just to cool the environment a bit, perhaps Redskins should be re-named to match Obama’s unique sensitivity and heightened concern for others?

How about the “Washington Special Olympians,” sir?
