Late last year, ESPN’s Rob Parker blanched at the idea that Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III might be a “cornball brother,” aka a black Republican. So, we can only imagine what Parker’s thinking after seeing this tweet from Griffin:


Naturally, lefties are freaking out:

Can’t let anyone fall out of lock-step!

Awww, what’s wrong, Oliver? Is it too cornball for you?

(See Editor’s note below.)

Snort. In that case, pass the cornballs!

Some people think that Griffin’s tweet is about basketball player Jason Collins’ announcement that he’s gay:

While others think it might have to do with the Redskins’ possible name change:

In any event, here’s something to keep in mind:




It turns out RGIII was just getting warmed up. He checked in later to clarify the definition of tyranny, if not the subject of his earlier tweet.


Editor’s note: This post has been updated with additional tweets.

Editor’s note: Robert A. George (@RobGeorge) is a conservative. His tongue-in-cheek tweet was included to draw attention to the stupidity of the “cornball brother” concept. We apologize for any confusion.

  • NRPax

    Next up: He gets accused of racism. Oh wait…is that allowed with him?

    • Adela Wagner

      It will be “Uncle Tomism” and he’s being “used” by the GOP and doesn’t realize it. Like Ben Carson, because apparently they cannot possible be in their right minds. I just hope he doesn’t care what they call him, hope he continues standing for what he believes.

      • NRPax

        Oh, that’s right! I forgot about the insult “Uncle Tom” that gets thrown out when a black man has a thought on his own. Thanks for reminding me.

        • Terry Brown, Jr.

          The thing is that any black person from the Left that calls him an “Uncle Tom” is using the derogatory term incorrectly. They are the “Uncle Toms.”

          • Juliette Akinyi Ochieng

            Anyone that uses the phrase “Uncle Tom” as an epithet outs the fact that he/she doesn’t read and has never read Uncle Tom’s Cabin.

          • Sarah Lise

            Exactly. Ex-freaking-actly.

          • GaryTheBrave

            The same also applies to Little Black Sambo, a story of a boy who saves his parents from tigers, but because the title has the word “black” in it it must be racist.

            Maybe it should be re-released as “Little Sam.”

          • Fitz

            It will have to be re-released as “Little Person of Color Sam” to be politically correct

          • GaryTheBrave

            There may be problems from the National Association of Little People.

          • Courtney

            “Little Black Sambo” is also Indian (from India, not Native American). There is nothing African American about him and it is therefore erroneous for people to be offended.

          • GaryTheBrave

            Absolutely correct. So, who were Sambo’s parents? (Play “Jeopardy” theme here.)

          • Don Edwards

            Terry M. Brown Jr. is correct. The derogatory term “Uncle Tom” refers to a black slave in the book “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”… a character who never got off the plantation where other people held complete authority to decide everything about their lives. However, the term is now used exclusively as an insult for people of the same race who DO get off that plantation and attempt to take control of their own destiny.

        • Terry Brown, Jr.

          The thing is that any black person from the Left that calls him an “Uncle Tom” is using the derogatory term incorrectly. They are the “Uncle Toms.”

      • trixiewoobeans

        At least we know nobody will “Uncle Tom” him to his face! LOL!

      • IprefertobeAnonymous

        Well, since the left thinks that black people can’t compete in education, jobs or life (just look at all the accommodations made to “level the playing field”) on their own merit and intelligence, of course the GOP, and the TRUE conservative movement MUST be using them. They can’t possibly be smart enough to see it.

        As Dr. Ben Carson said “Well, obviously they don’t know what an Uncle Tom is because they need
        to read Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin.’ You’ll see
        that he was very, very subservient, kind of go along to get along type
        of person. Obviously, that’s not what I’m doing.”

        • Adela Wagner

          REALLY enjoyed the movie about Carson “Gifted Hands”. This man is a shining example of someone who could have easily taken the “victimhood” path, but instead listened to his mom,prayed to God to help him see a better way, embraced knowledge, and went on to do great things. Just think if he actually gave a rat’s ass about what these nay sayer’s are all about and let THAT “hold him down”. He is so much better than those who call him names.

      • Bill Clay

        I say what is on my heart, not whats on liberal hearts! Can’t stand liberals, can’t they move away and leave all of us normal people alone?

      • Okie_pastor

        Yep. I’m Cherokee Indian born and raised in Tahlequah, Ok (Cherokee nation) Oceo. And not the Elizabeth Warren kind either. I love the red-skins name. They changed the local college name from redmen to riverhawks. So stupid! I wonder if I’m an uncle Tonto?

        • Adela Wagner

          Right on, teams do not adopt names because those names are looked upon as weak or “less than”. They take those names and wear them with pride. If a team took my name and celebrated me everyday, well I think it would make me feel pretty good.
          And I’d never call you an Uncle Tonto, I’d say you’re a no-nonsense realist.

        • trixiewoobeans

          My grandfather was an Okie pastor who lived on the rez in OK!

        • EdCrunk

          I’m an okie too, just change the name to the Whiteskins and all should be good.

    • Ariadnea

      Those who have nothing good to say about his comment either:

      1) has no understanding of what it meant …clueless or brainless

      2) envious that they are not capable of the same depth of thinking.

      3) are themselves guilty of tyranny (political correctness). It usually hurts where it hits (truth does).

      4) or all of the above.

      That comment is perfect as bumper sticker or slogan for 2014/2016.

    • CDUB

      Let’s hope RGIII sees the message boards and the support he has. It’s still a sad day that a black conservative man/woman is treated this way by libs. RGIII, Dr Ben Carson, Allen West, Stacy Dash………. All piled on by libs for voicing their conservative views, yet Republicans/Conservatives are the racist of the bunch…….. Really??

      • NRPax

        If you have never heard of him, I recommend reading Bob Parks’ blog at

      • Terry Brown, Jr.

        That’s the thing. I don’t know what RG3’s political affiliation is, but I like the way he thinks: FOR HIMSELF. Even if he turns out to be a Democrat, he’s not following the group-think that’s metastasized in the DNC today.

      • Terry Brown, Jr.

        That’s the thing. I don’t know what RG3’s political affiliation is, but I like the way he thinks: FOR HIMSELF. Even if he turns out to be a Democrat, he’s not following the group-think that’s metastasized in the DNC today.

    • mapache

      sure. Like Allen West and others he’ll be accused of not being authentically black.

      • NRPax

        Wait. All black people think alike? I thought that was racist. I really need an updated playbook.

    • Rob Purdie

      He’s conservative. Of course he’s racist.

    • Mandy in SC

      That wouldn’t be surprising, considering he blew off an invitation by the president for a private dinner before the WHCD (which he also decided not to attend – he was invited as NBC’s guest)

      • Heather_A

        Oh. SNAP. RGIII is quite the interesting sort, is he not? 😀


    • Barbara Holmes

      say anything opposing these days and somebody will use political pressure to condemn you as a racist.

    • Jason Call

      Yep. Blacks not down with the schtruggle are self-loathing racists who aspire to be honorary white people.

      • nc

        Bonus points for schtruggle.

    • ConservativeCreole

      he’ll get hit ever harder on the field this season … bounties, anyone?

  • © Sponge

    I applaud him for having the balls to say it. He’ll likely need to apologize soon for something, I’m sure, but I still applaud him.

    • froggy19510

      I’ll bet he doesn’t apologize. I hope not. We need more atheletes that are conservitave and have true conviction.

    As a (long suffering) Cowboys fan, its in my DNA to hate the Redskins. But I do like RG3. Glad he has the courage to speak the truth. He seems like a pretty decent young man. To bad he’s not still playing here in Texas.

    • LeMonJames

      Amen to that.

    • James Paul

      He might be run off to Texas shortly….

      • optionout

        As a life long cowboy fan I’ll take em!! Especially after his tweet.

  • Erick Weigold

    It’s moments like this when I like to say, “DJango, the D is enunciated.” RG3 has it straight…

  • theregularguy

    Interesting… RGIII doesn’t say what prompted his tweet… could it be the outpouring of PC adulation for Jason Collins (also a pro athlete in the DC area)? Hmmmm….

    • Joe W.

      Really doesn’t matter, because he is as right as rain….

    • Conservative Ohioan

      I think it’s the current liberal demands that the Redskins change “that ole racisssss name.”

    • Elaine

      No, it’s changing the name of the Redskins to the Redtails! Now how are the RedTail Hawks going to feel, huh? Anyone think of that? No.

  • JoeMyGodNYC

    Who is holding him hostage? He doesn’t seem to be too afraid making a big show of crossing himself after big plays.

    • Gary Freeman

      RGIII is addressing the libs saying that the Washington Redskins is a racist team because the term Redskins is racist against native Americans.

    • daeghrefn

      And you make a big show of apparently taking offense to such “displays”.

      • JoeMyGodNYC

        Nope. Doesn’t bother me in the slightest. I find it rather hilarious that people believe God takes sides in football games. Always makes me laugh out loud, for realz.

        • Joe W.

        • David McCormick

          If it doesn’t bother you Joe then why did you feel the need to say it in the first place? People who say that something doesn’t bother them are usually masking the fact that it does on the inside. But I’ll let you carry on with your little charade there son.

    Being a lifetime Vikings fan,Griffin is the reason I switched to the Redskins last season……Bought the Griffin jersey and Redskins hat…..It will be harder to ban this guy from the NFL than is was to ban Tebow….The fact that I was saying bye bye to Chris Kluwe was an added bonus.

  • Luke Givens

    Well, I have no idea what he was talking about, and he has absolutely nothing to back up his claim, but it totally makes me feel good. And that’s what being a conservative is all about. Feeling good and calling everything I don’t like or agree with “tyranny”.

    • Joe W.

      Of course you have no idea of what he’s talking about. That’s pretty much par for the course for you.

      • Luke Givens

        A third of the commenters cheering him on think it has to do with the gay NBA player, a third with renaming the redskins, a third have no idea but are babbling about “tyranny”. So it’s safe to say I am not the only one who has no idea what he is talking about.

        • Joe W.

          He clearly is talking about political correctness, Zippy. In any situation. What is so hard to wrap your brain around that??

    • jamesben

      You’re post is a complete non sequitur, perhaps you’d like to “try again?”

      • Joe W.

        His life is a non sequitur.

      • Luke Givens

        Well since satire is too challenging for you I will try to type this one slower. The comments on Twitter and Twitchy supporting him have no idea whether is talking about renaming the Redskins, something involving the gay basketball player, or something else. Neither he nor they have no idea what tyranny is and have never lived under or even read about a truly tyrannical regime in their lives, but they are still saying Woohoo, right on RGIII, because it makes them feeeellll good and pretend they are victims in life. I hope that was clear enough for you, if not better luck next time.

    • daeghrefn

      Projection. It’s a lib staple.

    • Chevypowered

      Oh quite the contrary. I do believe you know exactly what RG is talking about, but if playing ignorant is what get you through the day. Have at it.

      Using copypasta from below doesn’t make the comment any less vapid or ignorant.

      Your too ignorant to claim to be a conservative. use a dictionary to learn what tyranny means or are you to stupid ?

    • pjcostello

      Political correctness… To shut down discussion and dissent, and to stifle debate, without having to actually discuss the points made, or the merits thereof.

      To attempt to point out the odious nature of political correctness is to restate the crucial importance of plain speaking, freedom of choice and freedom of speech: These are the community’s safeguards against the imposition of tyranny. Indeed, their absence is tyranny. The declared rationale of this tyranny is to prevent people being offended, by compelling everyone to avoid using words or behavior that may upset: Homosexuals, women, non-whites, the crippled, the stupid, the fat or the ugly – by way of a few examples.

      This reveals not only its absurdity but also its inspiration: The set of values that are detested are those held by the previous generation; thus, in an act of infantile rebellion, their subject(s) have become revered by the new generation. Political correctness is merely the resentment of spoiled children directed against their parent’s values, and hence the reason political correctness is so often used by the political Left in America – they are the nation’s children.

      A democracy depends on the widest possible dissemination of facts, and the freest possible discussion of them. Crying ‘racism’ when none is either leveled or implied merely takes the focus from the issue at hand, and re-directs it at the speaker.

      Political correctness is narrowing the range of acceptable opinions, down to those held by a small group that enforces it. It is an attempt, often successful, to coerce the majority to accept the opinions of the enforcing group by suppressing any contrary opinion – and making independent thought unacceptable. The enforcing group may be afraid of the the consequences of open discussion, or of making the facts known. It generally has a practical motivation: It wants something of value (money, jobs, special privileges) to which it has a weak claim. So it attempts to enforce its claim by ruling any disagreement outside the bounds of acceptable discourse. This is unnecessary when the claim is self-evidently strong, but may be the only means of getting the claim accepted when it is weak.

      RGIII is a very special person as he gets it and not many young people today do! He has become a man against all odds and he has the fortitude to tell it like it really is regardless of the name calling and ignorance of the racists that hate him for being real, not just black. A breath of fresh air for once that rarely ever comes from the leftist PC freaks..

  • Greg Greenlee

    The guy got his undergrad and MBA in just over four years. He’s a smart guy. Need more young men in pro sports like RGIII!

      we need more young people like RGIII in this world period. Refreshing to listen to a young person that has a clue.

    Heh. Notice how the lefties prove Griffin’s point.

    • Luke Givens

      Oh yeah, of course at the moment it is just lefties exercising their right to tell him they think he is ridiculous, but any moment he will be arrested, imprisoned and possibly executed for taking a swipe at political correctness and for being a high profile conservative christian athlete!

  • Mandy in SC

    I am a Redskins fan (I know, a sin in Texas) and have been since I was younger. I grew up just a short drive from RFK Stadium (where they used to play). When this guy was drafted to the team I was as excited as all the other ‘Skins fans out there desperate for an awesome QB under center and the possibility of winning more than 6 games in a season. In one of his first interviews, he was asked who he was voting for in the upcoming presidential election, and his answer was something along the lines of not discussing race, religion, or politics. He’s an awesome athlete, no doubt, and I tend to like him more every time I hear him talk, or see him post.

According to political correctness those of us sporting a lifestyle of a wholesome, moral, outlook on marriage between a man and a woman shall not commit traditional values upon those same sex partnerships incorporated by a minority of citizens. Expanding our issues base to exploit every emotional nerve of a prosperous nation will divide a great economic blockbuster into a marginal contender in a world of competing nations.Jason Collins makes his sexual preference public. I could careless about any ones preference, We seem to live in a land of distractions, phony issue holly wood actors playing minor parts allowing politicians an exploiting opportunity to further their ideology.. Sorry I am not buying. Yes we are being held hostage by those representing themselves. There are know opposing parties. Equal Rights does not mean equal outcome.

    Divisiveness, manipulation of emotional reactions.Questioning humanities ability to think and make the proper decisions on a daily basis.

We hide behind compassion without seeing the shadow of corruption creeping up upon us. There are some whom abuse their own wife and children seeking control of themselves! ( known as denial ). By controlling their family environment the over flow touches all denied realities and spills over everyday life interactions with others. Its known as liberalism.or progressive ideology. Political Correctness forcing an outcome denying individuals the use of conscious reflection and dismissing individual character traits and aspirations. If humanity is denied defining its own individual borders respectful of good, honest, character inbred by family values. Sure not all families are the same.

    Once the evil oppressive name of Redskins gets changed to the “Washington Rainbows” he will come around to the proper way of thinking. HAAA Lefty Kooks!

    Will Obama pick up the phone in support of RGIII like he has done for Jason Collins?

    And the left says:”Seriously, if you’re wondering why you should care, here’s why: because no one has done this before.:
    Um, ‘coming out’ just surpassed ‘helping stop the bleeding of a spectators blown off limb’ on the left’s “Bravery Scale”…but still trails ‘speakigng thruth to power’ by a wide margin.

    How ironic. In response to his complaint that he isn’t free to say what he wants, Liberals tell him: Shut up! Of course you can say what you want!

    A sports team takes on a name because the source of that name is perceived as having some attribute(s) that, in the context of a sports team, is considered desirable.

    Thus, the name is a compliment to that source.

    How dare we compliment Native Americans!

    We can’t even let reservation schools where the student body is 99% Native American, compliment Native Americans in this manner.

    (Actually, the ruckus is almost entirely “*I* think some of *those* people might be offended, so I will take it upon myself to defend them without even asking their consent, because they are obviously incompetent to even decide if they need defended let alone to do it themselves. Anyone who disagrees with me on this is obviously racist.”)

    The Chiefs play at the Redskins this season aka among fans as a gridiron pow wow. I wonder if their will be ” politically correct” protesters at that game.

    I demand to hear from a nice Homosexual Muslim couple about how much THEy support players coming out! Or is it ok for Muslims to be Homophobic?! Why aren’t more mosques painted rainbow for refusing same-sex unions?! I already know the answer, the homosexual unions and the ACLU are too cowardly to speak against them, I guess they are afraid of tolerance! hee hee
