Obama Regime Tries to Use Bully Tactics to Force Redskins to Change Their Name

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Thirsty to stir up further racial strife, the Obama Regime is again pulling out the phony controversy created by Democrat Harry Reid, (a confirmed, overt racist) over the name of the Washington Redskins.

The term “Redskins,” which is over 70 years old and was chosen by American Indians to honor the heritage of American Indians, is under attack by the the regime, using their familiar tyrannical, Chicago-style bully tactics to try to force Washington Redskins’ owner Daniel Snyder (who coincidentally just happens to be a Republican) to change the historic team name.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]The team, which currently plays their games at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, is desiring to move the team back to it’s old stomping grounds in Washington, D.C. at the site of RFK Stadium, where a new stadium would be constructed.

However, there is just one problem.

The Obama Regime, using the bureaucracy the National Park Service, is refusing to issue a new lease to the District of Columbia for the site of the proposed new stadium because Obama Interior Secretary Sally Jewell apparently thinks that part of the U.S. Constitution’s enumerated powers is picking out the mascots of NFL teams.

“Secretary Jewell has been clear that she considers the Washington football team’s name a relic of the past and believes it should be changed,” Interior Department spokeswoman Jessica Kershaw said.

Democrat Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid has been obsessed in changing the name of the Redskins, insisting the name is racist, an  obvious attempt to deflect from his long clear history of racism.

Megan Yellowhorse, of The Navajo Nation, said the Redskins logo “shows a strong warrior, and our ancestors have always taught us to be strong and be proud of who you are.”

“The Redskins name, it’s always been a term that we felt was a unifying term,” said Mark One Wolf of the Chiricahua/Apache tribe in the video.

Wade Colliflower from the Chippewa Cree Tribe is insulted by those pushing for the name change, saying, “They’ve never asked Native Americans. It’s somebody else who knows nothing about us trying to speak for us and it’s kind of an insult.”
