Jerry Jones: Redskins owner Dan Snyder isn’t insensitive, because he’s Jewish


Dan Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins, has vowed he’ll never change his team’s controversial name, despite complaints from the likes of President Obama. Now he has a new supporter, in the form of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

Before last night’s game against Washington, Jones made this statement: “It would be a real mistake — a real mistake — to think Dan, who is Jewish, has a lack of sensitivity regarding anybody’s feelings. I promise you that.”

Nice pulling the Jewish card, but we’re not sure we’re convinced.
