It started out a simple, harmless Happy Thanksgiving from the Washington Redskins. That’s all. “Happy Thanksgiving” with the team logo was what they Tweeted out on Thanksgiving morning.
What came as a result was a remarkable display of anger and hate from the radicals.

The hate that spewed out in response to this tweet started out as simple criticism of the Redskins, but over time it branched out into raw anti-Americanism.

It’s not that the Redskins critics hate the name. It’s just that they hate America. Remember that.
In conclusion, I’d like to suggest that kfromaz in the Disqus thread at The Hill has the right idea:
The Washington Redskins are changing their name because of all the negativity, shame, humiliation, dissent, polarity, adversity, defiance, hatred, animosity, contempt,
discrimination, division, violence, counter-productivity, ill-spirit, un-Godliness, and hostility associated with their name.
So, from now on they will be known simply as the Redskins.
