Not the Onion…..
Harry Reid blasted the NFL for suspending Tom Brady while ignoring “racist” Redskins name.
Wow. The race-baiting never ends.
The Hill reported:
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is slamming the NFL’s priorities as out of whack because of the league’s decision to suspend New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady but live with the Washington Redskins “racist” franchise name.

“I find it stunning that the National Football League is more concerned about how much air is in a football than with a racist franchise name that denigrates Native Americans across the country,” he said Tuesday in comments on the Senate floor.
“The Redskins name is a racist name,” Reid said.
The NFL on Monday announced Brady would receive a four-game suspension for his role in “deflategate.”
An investigation found the team used under-inflated footballs in the AFC championship game last year, and that Brady probably knew about it. The Patriots, who went on to win their fourth Super Bowl, were fined $1 million.
