The debate over the Redskins name quickly became another red state/blue state brouhaha, with the liberal “thought police” trying to protect Native Americans who may not be offended by the term and conservatives fearing that changing the name “Redskins” would result in the elimination of every team name based on any type of human or animal or other organism, living or dead.
One prominent conservative columnist, risking the wrath of other red-staters, has attempted to focus the argument not on politics but linguistics.
In an item appearing in the Washington Post, Charles Krauthammer compares the term “Redskins” to other words that were once socially acceptable but have, over time, become radioactive.
