Daily News editorial cartoon likens Redskins logo to Confederate, Nazi flags

Nothing subtle about that. It wasn’t until I saw this editorial cartoon in the New York Daily News that it occurred to me that, why yes, the Washington Redskins logo is an “Archaic Symbol of Pride and Heritage” and is exactly like the hateful symbols of Nazism and racial injustice.

It’s nice to see that to some extent, Godwin’s Law is still in effect, holds considerable and resolute power over all debate and continues to reduce legitimate and meaningful discussions of serious, worthwhile topics to the lowest common denominator.
