On his Sept. 17 show, nationally syndicated radio host Mark Levin criticized the left for fearing the Washington Redskins’ name more than the “Islamo-Nazi regime” in Tehran.
More than 150 D.C. residents convened at an Events DC meeting and expressed opposition to a new Redskins stadium on Robert F. Kennedy stadium property.
“This is how pathetic and stupid things have become,” Levin said. “So the name Redskins is to be feared more than the Islamo-Nazi regime that has ICBMs and wants to put nuclear warheads on – than an Islamo-Nazi regime that has killed Americans, that has four American hostages.”
Here is the full transcript of Levin on the Redskins:
“Barack Obama will negotiate with the Islamo-Nazi regime in Tehran. They’ll say ‘Death to America.’ He’ll still negotiate with the Islamo-Nazi regime in Iran, right?
“And yet, it appears that they’re going to block the Washington Redskins from even considering building a brand new, spanking new football stadium in the District of Columbia. All the jobs it would create, not just construction, but ongoing jobs it creates and the convenience that it would provide for Redskins fans because of the name, Redskins.
“This is how pathetic and stupid things have become. So the name Redskins is to be feared more than the Islamo-Nazi regime that has ICBMs and wants to put nuclear warheads on – than an Islamo-Nazi regime that has killed Americans, that has four American hostages.
“We have to be open to talk to them. We have to be respectful when we refer to them. We use whatever name they say when we refer to them. They’re going, ‘Death to America! Death to Israel! Death to the Jews! Death to this one!’ They want to do us grievous harm.
“Obama says, ‘Engage, look, look, engage. We can’t change them. That’s not the purpose of the negotiations.’
“But the Redskins. No no! Crush them! Kill them! We cannot tolerate that! No way! Not today! Never ever!
“This is the perversion that is liberalism. This is the perversion that is Obama. And the media go along with it.”
