Political Party Names Deemed Offensive to Native Americans, Regular Americans

Political Party Names Disparaging, Offensive
by Chris Redskinski
Duck Duck News

In a landmark decision, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (tm) has ruled that the terms 'Democrat' and 'Republican' are offensive to Native Americans and all the other Americans and will no longer be protected by force of copyright law.

"The words 'democrat' and 'republican' have a long history of racist connotations," reads the statement published by the office "in addition, the definitions of these words has changed dramatically since their inception over a hundred years or ago, to the point that they are now more often hurled as epithets than used in polite conversation, and as such are no longer appropriate political team names."

The National Governmentball League (NGL) has yet to announced if it will appeal the decision.

From Native American comedian Dallas Goldtooth of the 1491's comedy troupe:

It was only 5 generations ago that a white man could get money for one of my grandfathers' scalps.

At the time...it was Redskin that was used to describe us.

So to those who fail to understand the significance of this whole mascot debate, think deeper about the word legacy. Is the legacy of racism, death, and plunder worth keeping?

And to my fellow native people who remain unmoved on the issue of mascots and racist imagery, remember that at one time we were hunted for our skin.

And yes there are other important issues out there that we have to handle. But stop being scared of multitasking. The threat that faces our people's future is a multifaceted beast, so it follows that our response(s) should be just as multifaceted.

Very clever Chris.

It gave me a good laugh.

thanks. I also hope I offended you.

Or rather, that you feel as offended by this as I do. I mean come on after 15 years of this battle someone finds this 'disparaging' clause? And now a multi year appeal process? Whatever.

I'm referring to the redskins thing of course.

I am dusk icon. anagram me.

in particular, I am offended by the whole idea of 'Republicans'

, who have no idea of what a representative republic is, running the so-called Republican party.

The imperial war machine loves Native America names

It's no small irony they fire tomahawk missiles and launch Apache helicopters against the natives of other countries.

roommate suggests Washington wetbacks.

Thoughts?

This Would Be A Gift To America

It would eliminate prejudicial voting...such as generation voting for the party or against the party.
