MIKE HUCKABEE (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): The whole point of this, it just becomes absurd. Everybody's trying to be politically correct and not offend anybody. It's a proud tradition. I think that it was really a tribute to the Native Americans to give them that name and the strong, proud sense they had. And for [team owner] Dan Snyder, seven years ago, to say, ‘oh, we'll never change it,' and now to sell out and fold because of the pressure, it's disappointing.

By contrast:

Also, this is not the first time that Huckabee had a horrible take on indigenous peoples.
