do you get the feeling that obama doesn't even care any more and knows he has a complacent media to cover for him?

this was all known 5 years ago. Obama's dithering is a menace.
The original Browns were named for the team founder Paul Brown who formed the team in the rival All American Football Conference. While the NFL never had an outright ban on black players like major league baseball did (informally but very effective), they were not heavily recruited and few played. Paul Brown actively went after them and hired many Black players and built a team that crushed the established NFL teams and forced a league merger. When the team moved away the new expansion team bought the Browns' name, color scheme, logos and basically everything from the original team that wasn't nailed down.
ISIS, Uncontrolled immigration and chaos on the border, high unemployment and a moribund economy, war in the Ukraine, Nigeria in chaos, etc..all nothing. Now the name of a football team, that's important stuff. (I agree its a distraction created by the PC police to divert attention from their long list of failures)
The Browns were named after an actual person whose last name was Brown. But that basic fact will elude them. FSU has been using the name Seminoles with the specific permission of the Seminole tribe for many decades. the PC police went after FSU furiously several years ago without ever even bothering to look up that basic fact.
I think that this nation has much more stuff to worry about than the name of a football team. Its now chic to hate the skins and leftists love to feel chic. It would be nice to have another name but come on guys.

To disagree with this or that Israeli policy is one thing, to attack Israel with blood libel is quite another. After teh Holocaust (with many Jews turned away from teh United States,by FDR's state department) and with the rising violence against Jews in Europe Israel is a part of the Jewish existence. People like Stewart are bothered by the fact that is a western ally, democratic, successful, and stands up for itself as Jewish. That offends the liberal mind.

the basic fact is that Jews are of all races, arabs are of all religions (the majority being muslim but there are many arab catholics, jews, Druze and many others)

the term antisemite means hate of Jews. It was coined in Germany in the 1870s and used a lot in Russia. The term is meant to imply that Jews were not simply another religion, but another race all together, a Semitic race, a foreign inferior race that was a genetic threat to the body of the volk. Arabs were not in their minds at the time the word was coined. In reality Jews are of all races.
