They'll find here on the great WRK okay. Kansas City and now on 93 point seven take. Hours three of the quarter report Jeff corner Boston's -- Bulger 6172666868. Talk about political correctness now run amok. This is an incredible story I've been I've talked about it a few times before but it just gets worse and worse and worse. On Wednesday in a major blow to the Washington Redskins. The US patent and trademark office on Wednesday as I said canceled six federal trade marks of the team name. Because it was found to be disparaging quote unquote to native Americans. So what this means in reality is. The Redskins have been stripped of some important trademarks. It's going to be a more difficult for them to patent their local patent their name. It's gonna open up potentially to maybe lawsuits down the road. And so according to the patent office's trademark trial and appeal board. We decide based on the evidence properly before us that these registrations. Must be canceled. Because they were disparaging to native Americans. Their respective times they were registered. In other words. Because this appeal board deemed that the term Redskins is quote a racist offensive term. They are trying to force the National Football League. And the football team of the -- Washington Redskins to change their name. Now. How are re read. The senate Democrats. ES the end that's fraud Keith Olbermann who left MSNBC. Went to that left wing progressive network owned by Al Gore. That nobody listened to now he's peddling his garbage on ESP yen. And he's been on a crusade to change the Redskins name. The Huffington Post to do in New York Times CNN. The liberal elite media establishment. Is on a G hall additional other words are on a crusade. To purge that name. From the Washington football team. And so I want you think about this we're talking about the football team. A football team. Harry Reid senate majority leader. Cold -- the senate floor on Sunday. Lauding the trademark decision. And saying come hell or high water. The Washington Redskins must and will change their name according to Harry Reid. He says the name Redskins is quote a sudden reminder unquote. Of the bigotry native Americans have faced and said the issue -- quote. Extremely important to native Americans all across the country unquote. He refers to the owner of the Washington Redskins Daniel Snyder. Daniel Snyder may be the last person in the world to realize this. But it's just a matter of time until he is forced to do the right thing and changed the -- decent quote unquote. He added the writing is on the wall. It's on the wall in giant blinking neon lights. This. And there's no other word for. Is liberal fascism. This is fascism. I don't care where you stand on the issue whether you think it's an offensive term not offensive term. Whether they should get rid of it were not get rid of it. The fact of the matter is the Washington Redskins. Is a privately owned sports team in professional sports team. Our government. Has no hole. Smith's. Getting involved in the name of this team that's point number one number 20. Congress is gonna get involved. The federal government is gonna get involved. This. It's madness. What. What we're living through. It's like the late days of the Roman empire. With you rock. Burning. With the Taliban now getting back their five top military commanders. With our boys dying day after day in Afghanistan. Our dollar is collapsing. Our economy is in shambles. Our border is an all pinch for. Tens of thousands upon thousands upon thousands of illegals are being dumped. With all of the problems that the United States patients. The senate Democrats and Harry Reid and chief spring ball Elizabeth Warren or accessed over the main Redskins. What one football team decides that called themselves. -- here is the ultimate point. Motion native Americans in fact the overwhelming majority of native Americans. Don't care about the term Redskins you know why they don't care about a term Redskins. Because unlike these lives -- old -- history of the name Redskins. That term is actually a compliment. It doesn't refer to the fact that their skin may be read. It was named after one of -- be the coach. Who said. Well one of the original Redskins coaches who was from an Indian tribe whereby they painted their skin red when they were about to going to battle. In fact all of these names. In football team's basket for -- baseball teams. Indians braves cherokees. Seminoles Redskins. Their compliments. It goes back to the days -- a more Hooper. The great American novelist. Whereby American writer after American writer even in the age of hostilities between the white man and native American Indians. The white demands salt honor in the native American Indian especially their warrior fighting prowess. That's why they say if you wanna be tough if you wanna be strong if you wanna be brave if you wanna be -- sink. You're an Indian. You're redskin you're summon all you're Cherokee. It's the very opposite of an ethnic swore. Let me tell all of you something just to reveal the hypocrisy of this. Chief spreading -- Elizabeth Warren that's phony Indian. Who lied about being a Cherokee Indian so she could get a job as -- suppose it minority at Harvard. To get to teach one class for 350000. Dollars a year you phony you fraud you. Says she comes from Oklahoma. And her family all had roots in Oklahoma going back generations. And they older and Oklahoma. That her great great great grandmother. -- to be at Cherokee Indian they should look what's the proof look at the high cheek -- it's. Look it up. Don't take my word -- look I want you Google this everybody in corner country at least. Do you know what Oklahoma stands for. It is the name literally this chalk talk. It's an Indian name. Meaning. Red people. In fact be precise O clock is chalked off for people. Home Mott is the Indian -- a term for -- its people read but it means red people. By the liberals own definition. If Redskins. Is an offensive term. Oklahoma. The state is just as an offensive term is just as offensive. So I'm gonna ask every liberal out there on when asked Keith Olbermann and I'm gonna ask Harry Reid and I'm gonna ask chief spreading -- and I'm gonna -- -- Francois and I'm gonna ask the president did earlier because he also thinks they should change their name like he doesn't have more important things to do. Why don't you change the state of Oklahoma one should change their name. Why -- you push for movement to renamo Oklahoma. Because that also wasn't a swore. That was also what compliment to native American Indians. So what's good for the goose is good for the -- To everybody that wants to change the name to direct that change the name of the Redskins all you have to say is this not a problem. But first you got to change the name of Oklahoma chief you're from Oklahoma. -- spreading -- you're Cherokee allegedly from Oklahoma. Chief it's now time to change the name of Oklahoma and -- spreading bull when we want shoot to lead the way. But you won't you know why because you didn't build that BP chief spreading bowl. 6172666868. Is the number. Should the Redskins change their name 61726. X sixty at 68. Cuomo said.

And look at the photo of the Navajo code talkers on the sideline after watching Gretzky game. And look at the jackets they're wearing and tell me and native Americans. Well it doesn't it -- that's the big lie. Most native Americans are fact proud of them and they should be proud it's it's a great honor. And -- did you notice in this country for example on the nickel. We would have like you know the African authority on the native American the feather headdress. The proud native American feather headdress. This is always been a sign. Of bravery honor courage toughness. Going for hundreds for for -- over a hundred years. Only in the era of victim politics. Of -- the -- -- Kendall lips take a compliment. And turn it into a -- only I swear only believes can do that. Drew Europe next thanks for holding go. I didn't know what.

I forget I don't know if you -- Cheney and I can't remember the exact try but I know he was somewhere from the from the northern part of the United States. And in honor of his heritage of his Indian tribe they said you know what you want call you said what we used to paint our face is red. When we would we sparse in our face is red what are we going to battle. And that was assigned like you know you go to war with us it's gonna be awarded the finish.

Out cold now all the about it but you would go -- Charlie Bartlett called our football -- and he's written a great article about the history of out of registered -- why would you say the. Thank you very much Bobby no and here's the other thing what I find despicable. They keep changing C is a self anointed thought police. They determine what's acceptable and what's not acceptable. So if you remember in the fifties and sixties determined that was acceptable for blacks was negro. So and they use that term negro. So they created the negro college fund will -- negro was considered offensive. Does anybody -- negro college fund should change their name. All remember it was colored people -- for while called a colored so the national association for the advancement of colored people. The NAACP. Does anybody now say all that's offensive asked to be African American and it cannot be colored. Does anybody go to NAACP and say you got to change your name. What's the problem. It was never intended as a slur it wasn't a slur it isn't to -- got lost. Rice syrup next thanks for holding.
