Seriously? Two major NFL announcers vow not to use the word ‘Redskins’ this season

The September 25 showdown between the Washington Redskins and New York Giants might end up getting as much attention for what is happening in the broadcast booth as what is happening on the field.

On Monday, CBS football analyst Phil Simms announced he is not planning to use the term ‘Redskins’ on air this year. The only problem? He is set to call the Thursday night Redskins/Giants game in September.

“My very first thought is it will be ‘Washington’ the whole game,” Simms told The Associated Press. “I never really thought about it, and then it came up and it made me think about it… There are a lot of things that can come up in a broadcast, and I am sensitive to this.”

Simms offers color commentary for CBS and his play-by-play counterpart, Jim Nantz, does not intend to follow his lead. According to the AP, Nantz said it is “not my job to take a stance.”

Over on NBC, Super Bowl-winning coach Tony Dungy is following Simms’ lead. Unlike Simms, however, Dungy will most likely not call a Redskins game this season.

"I will personally try not to use Redskins and refer to them as Washington," Dungy told the AP in an email. "Personal opinion for me, not the network."

The topic of the Redskins has come up many times over the last couple of months. In June, the United States Patent Office ruled the Washington Redskins federal trademarks for its name must be canceled because the moniker is “disparaging of Native Americans.” In interview with Glenn after the ruling, Redskins trademark attorney Bob Raskopf maintained the team’s ownership has no plans to cave to pressure.

On radio this morning, Pat, Stu, and Jeffy discussed the ramifications of Simms and Dungy’s decision. If this trend catches on, what does the future hold for teams like the Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Braves, Golden State Warriors, Florida Seminoles, etc.?

“This is getting absolutely absurd now,” Pat said.

Stu considered what the backlash would be if a reporter covering the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri got on the air and refused to refer to the Brown or the police by their names. Such action would not be tolerated, and yet CBS is seemingly looking the other way when it comes to the Redskins.

“If you had a reporter [covering] Michael Brown [who] said, ‘I'm not going to say the words Michael Brown. I'm just going to say the teen… [or] if you thought the police were wrong in this case and you said, ‘I'm not going to call them the police. I'm going to call them the oppressors,’” Stu said. “Wait a minute, that's taking a stance in the middle of coverage. That's not something you're supposed to do.”

While Simms is at CBS in an analyst role that requires him to offer his opinion, Stu still thinks it sets a bad precedent.

“To Simms’ defense, he is the color commentator… so I honestly… don't care. But it's silly,” Stu said. “It is not a racist term. It was not formed that way. It was the first usage of the term was by Native Americans. The team itself did it to honor Native Americans for its own coach.”

Last fall, Glenn had his team put together a video that chronicles the history of the term Redskins and sheds some light on where public opinion really stands on the issue:

“If [the Redskins] cave, don't think that's the end of it,” Pat concluded. “They will go after every other name that can even be remotely offensive. “

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.
