Proving that liberalism is moving the entire world of profanity into the realm of supporting what they see as embattled minorities – like the gay F-bomb – several old liberal hands at the Federal Communications Commission now want the word “Redskins” to be treated like an obscenity. “XXXskin is the most derogatory name a Native American can be called. It is an unequivocal racial slur,” they proclaimed in a letter to Redskins owner Daniel Snyder.
But the Brooks Boliek report in Politico has a major factual omission in it. Men who signed this letter, like former FCC chairman Reed Hundt and former commissioner Jonathan Adelstein, routinely hated identifying anything as indecent on television before deciding the word “Redskins” was.
