Mike Ditka: Redskins Opponents ‘Politically Correct Idiots’

From Breitbart:

Mike Ditka Calls Opponents of Redskins Name ‘Politically Correct Idiots’

By Daniel J. Flynn | August 20, 2014

The Hall of Famer had some strong words…  “There’s so much horse$#!+,” the Super Bowl-winning coach and player [sic] of the nickname controversy, “it’s incredible” … in an edited audio interview with Redskins author and superfan Mike Richman…

“This is so stupid it’s appalling,” the Hall of Famer opines. “And I hope that the owner keeps fighting for it and never changes it. Because the Redskins are a part of American football history. It should never be anything but the ‘Washington Redskins.’ That’s the way it is.”

The player, coach, and broadcaster making his living from the NFL for more than a half century cites the “history” and “tradition” of the league, which he knows well, and the “reverence” the name shows Native Americans, as reasons to keep it. “It’s all the politically correct idiots in America,” he says of the nickname’s opponents. “That’s all it is.”  …

And just think, if ‘Coach Ditka’ had run for the Senate we might never have been blessed with a President Obama.

(“Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, ‘It might have been.” — John Greenleaf Whittier.)

“I didn’t think that Lombardi and Halas…had a problem with it,” Ditka maintains. “Why would all these other idiots have a problem with the name? I’m sorry. I’m not very tolerant when it comes to the liberals who complain about everything.”

George Allen didn’t have a problem with it either. Of course, look at the ‘racist’ terms his son went on to spout.

    Wonder why crap like this & race riots make the news? “57 Channels & Nothing On” – Springsteen


    Check the lyrics. Damn near prophetic!


    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      And yet Springsteen, like other notable artists of the 20th century, cannot recognize the irony of their own embracing of socialism in order to “solve all the world’s problems”.

      I liken it, in a very parochial way, to the fact that I spent my childhood watching TV shows where mad scientists wanted to take over the world and displayed all the personality traits that obama, pelosi, reid, shumer, holder do and yet still think themselves as being a gift to mankind.

      They never get it.
