Mike Ditka Is Tired Of Political Correctness
Never one to shy away from voicing his feelings and opinion, Mike Ditka visited with RedskinsHistorian.com and lashed out at those who think the Redskins should have a new name:
“What’s all the stink over the Redskin name? It’s so much [expletive] it’s incredible. We’re going to let the liberals of the world run this world. It was said out of reverence, out of pride to the American Indian. Even though it was called a Redskin, what are you going to call them, a Brownskin? This is so stupid it’s appalling, and I hope that owner keeps fighting for it and never changes it, because the Redskins are part of an American football history, and it should never be anything but the Washington Redskins. That’s the way it is.”
The Cold Hard Football Facts have long promoted the reality - the cold hard fact - that the Redskins name is actually a tribute to a great Native American in history. You can read that piece here.
As for Ditka, he continued his tirade on the politically correct war.
“It’s all the political correct idiots in America, that’s all it is. It’s got nothing to do with anything else. We’re going to change something because we can. Hey listen, I went through it in the 60s, too. I mean, come on. Everybody lined up, did this. It’s fine to protest. That’s your right, if you don’t like it, protest. You have a right to do that, but to change the name, that’s ridiculous. Change the Constitution — we’ve got people trying to do that, too, and they’re doing a pretty good job.”
