But then the Obama administration went ahead and changed the name. Obama did thing. Thing must be bad!
The small stakes seem to only encourage them. Also, new thing sounds a bit ethnic...Muslim?
MeshugeMikey knows Obama's real motives are antiAmerican, as always:
honer....... my rear endTheodore R. has his priorities right!
anything to transform anything and everything American into anything and everything Unrecognizable.
The people of Alaska refer to the mountain as Denali. They have been trying to get it renamed for decades. This is not being forced down their throat, it’s one of the few things Obama’s done that they would probably approve. Even if it was likely accidental.SoFloFreeper knows even if Alaskans support this, Obama is still being evil:
I have more respect for McKinley than for the wishes of AK people.
Naw, it is crap. He might do it by accident, sure, but his desire is to destroy American historical achievements.SoFloFreeper has a rather convenient idea of what parts of American history is important:
If Hussein cared about what the people of Alaska thought, he would ask Valerie for permission to open up the northern slope for drilling. Alaskans want that, too.
Someone who respects the history of the last century can name it back as soon as the power is there.Ditter actually thought Obama was naming it after himself:
Valerie’s little charge is arrogant; he thinks his actions are going to last forever.
I’m surprised he didn’t rename it Mt. Obama.MeshugeMikey knows every time is good to make a strained Obama is gay joke!
When I heard he had renamed a mountain that is what I feared.
Mt Obozo if I had my way.
Denali is a good name, I'm OK with that.
or Mount Barack....in honor of Bareback Mountainfaithhopecharity channels Obama's spiteful, angry feelings, before ending up at least as spiteful herself:
[my most sincere apologies to the more tasteful amongst us]
why should O care about McKinley? just another dead white European-American male.... and a Republican too!!!! (and a dirty rotten imperialist for ‘winning’ the Spanish-American war?)IwaCornDogs just hates that Obama is President:
maybe we should submit a few suggested name changes of our own to the One in our WH....
anything named after communists or Kenyans or Islamics ?
or even... MLK, JFK, ?
It just pisses me off that when he wakes up in the morning he can say "I think I'll rename a Mountain today"Paladin2 makes a Muslim joke:
Why not call it Glorious Jihad?Wait, Paladin2 seems to be serious?!
Islam could easily be involved. Pakistan is close. Jihadis are everywhere.IronJack's not super good at semantics or logic:
The name of the mountain is McKinley.dfwgator, though, has a separate cult of personality telling him to go with Obama:
PC be damned.
Q: How many legs does a dog have if you call his tail a leg?
A: Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it one.
Even Palin calls it ‘Denali’, that’s good enough for me.jonrick46 doesn't want to be overdramatic but...
This is the work of a tyrant. Newspeak is their word for it.DoughtyOne thinks all renaming is surrender!
If we're going to surrender on McKinely, we'll never stop surrendering. Every place in the United States will revert to the Native American name.DoughtyOne does not support naming American things Native American names!
Many things in nature have been renamed around the world.
Evidently you are going to line up with those who wish to remove Western civilization’s names from those objects.
I’m not signing on board.
Who ever and when ever someone replaces us on this land, they will rename things, as is their right.
