Awesome: Redskins QB RGIII blasts ‘tyranny of political correctness’

http://twitter.com/#!/craigcarroll/status/329338038415142912

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:

In a land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness

— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 30, 2013

Bam!

Naturally, lefties are freaking out:

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

Jason Collins subtweet RT “@rgiii: In a land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness”

— joe bukhari (@j_buks) April 30, 2013

Damn @rgiii. Somebody really wants to say something about Collins, but can’t even do it. #CompletelyUnderstand. @arabmoney_88

— Osman Noor (@OzzyForMayor) April 30, 2013

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

Must be talking about: washingtonpost.com/local/dc-polit… RT @rgiii: In a land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness”

— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) April 30, 2013

Apparently not a fan of “the Redtails,” either. RT @rgiii: In a land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness

— The D.C. Universe (@dcuniverse) April 30, 2013

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

What @rgiii said is true regardless of what he was talking about specifically when he said it.

— Sunny (@sunnyright) April 30, 2013

Amen.

Update:

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.

Tyranny has not just 1 meaning.

— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 30, 2013

Tyranny- “a condition imposed by some outside agency or force <living under the tyranny of the clock” or political correctness….

— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 30, 2013

If we speak..we say it the wrong wayIf we do not speak we are cowards….

— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) May 1, 2013

Hate is strong. But love is even stronger. Appreciate the support people. I’m out for the night
