These teams must change their names:

Duke Blue Devils, or all other teams with the word “devil” in their names.  It is highly offensive to me to honor the symbol of evil.

Pittsburg Pirates, Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  These names celebrate criminal activity, mutiny and sedition.

San Francisco 49ers.  These people in history ravaged, plundered and destroyed natural resources.

Washington Capitals.  Why would anyone shed glory on elite money barons? 

Tennessee Titans.  Exalting Grecian mythological gods who ruled the earth is preposterous.

Chicago White Sox, Boston Red Sox, Cincinnati Reds.  Everyone sees the racist overtones in these names.

Dallas Cowboys.  Research says that “cowboy” was a pejorative name for black male slaves.

Green Bay Packers.  “Packers” refers to meat packers in the shameful animal slaughtering industry.

Oakland Raiders.  Does this even need an explanation? 

Providence Friars.  Given the troubles of the church today, we shouldn’t refer to the clergy.

Wake Forest Demon Deacons.  Repulsive, insulting, offensive.  All deacons should be outraged.

Kansas City Royals.  Americans do not pay homage to royalty.

New England Patriots.  “Patriots” were colonists who stole land from native americans.

Minnesota Vikings.  Horned-helmeted, violent, marauders who wreaked havoc everywhere they went.

Cleveland Indians, Washington Redskins.  Racist, vulgar terms for the noble original Americans.

Columbus Blue Jackets.  Blue Jacket was a fraud.

Buffalo Sabres. Instruments of assault and death.

Philadelphia 76ers.  The founding fathers trafficked in slavery and were disloyal to the Crown.

Cleveland Cavaliers.  Elitist, pretentious people totally over-the-top fashion conscious. 

Of course, I realize that these changes will never happen (although I’m not sure about that), but I suggested them anyway to show how crazy our politically correct society has become.  It only shows that everything is offensive to someone. 

Have you heard of the word implacable? It means “impossible to placate or please.”  That’s today’s world alright.  Take the issue of the Electoral College, for example.  If the leftists succeed in getting rid of it, watch out!  They’re only doing this to increase their chances to win elections, not because they’re interested in fairness.  And, if they still don’t win elections, they will demand some other kind of change.  Implacable!  

“Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.  Romans 1:31-32 (KJV) 

Don’t buy into the philosophies of the world.  Their siren songs sound aluring, but they offer no real satisfaction.  Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.” Proverbs 23:6-8 (KJV)
