Liberals Pass a Bill to Change the Name of This FISH – Because It's 'Hurtful' and 'Offensive'

Above: The hateful, racist fish – What’s next, a Justice Department investigation?

by Gina Cassini | Top Right News

Liberals demanded that the Washington Redskins change their name, even though it “offends” only Barack Obama and Harry Reid and not actual Native Americans. In fact, as TRN reported, most Indians support the name as a point of pride.

Well not content with that, now liberals in Minnesota are changing the name of a fish.

That’s right a FISH. Why? Well because it’s name is “offensive”, of course. This time to Asian-Americans. (Despite the fact that no actual Asian-American group complained about it)

From Breitbart:

The Minnesota Senate approved John Hoffman’s (D-MN) bill to change the name “Asian carp” so called because the species originates from Asia, to “invasive carp”. Since Asian carp were introduced in the U.S. in the 1970′s, the fish have spread to dozens of states causing destruction in the delicate ecosystems of the waterways.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have been fighting off the most invasive species, the black carp from China, the Silver carp from Vietnam, and Grass carp from China from spreading into the Great Lakes were the fish could do massive damage the regions fishing industry. While arguing his case on the Senate floor, Hoffman said that referring to the fish as “Asian” was hurtful to some people

Keep in mind that, according to Wikipedia, this fish has been known as the Asian Carp for centuries — and even the Chinese use that term. But now, according to Minnesota legislature, it is just too offensive to endure.
What is next for these wackos? Changing the racist name of the Black Bear? How about “hurtful” nicknames for U.S. military weapons, like the Apache helicopter, or Tomahawk missile?
With all the real problems facing the American people: chronic joblessness, welfare dependency, dangerously open borders — THIS is what the left chooses to focus on? Unreal.
Here’s the doofus who wrote the bill:

  1. they’re coming to take them away, hehe, they’re coming to take them away haha, to the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time……………

  2. really i need to leave this messed up state if thats gonna happen , nasty dem’s go away or go live where your agenda really matters. (hell)

  3. They don’t even say WHO it offends. It says that no Asian-American group has complained about it. Now nobody will know what they’re talking about.

  4. This just in! The Minnesota legislature has agreed to change the name of this fish to the Obama Carp. Lawmakers found the name to be a perfect fit since it’s a trash fish of uncertain origin, possibly an illegal transplant from somewhere in Africa. It has a habit of taking over bodies of water and destroying everything of value in them. They have now been declared to be a protected species, and fishing for them would be considered…..raaaaaacisssssst.

    1. Great job, I just wish this were really what’s happening. The description is most fitting!!!
      Does this fish also need a HOLDER?

      1. Oh, gee, CandyP….how dare HarryTheCat poke fun at someone who is known by all America and the world to be nothing more than a clown!!!! Oh, can’t compare him to to a clown, that would be giving clowns around the world a bad name. Lets just call him what he is, an over inflated egotistical pile of crap that doesn’t have the brain of an Asian carp, or invasive carp. Incidentally, invasive applies to him, also, since he is not American but African.

        1. Sarah! You just offended CLOWNS! For the sake of clowns everywhere please find a more fitting word to describe the POTUS.!

        2. Sarah – actually if he was born in Kenya and his father was a Brit, then he is British. But evidently they don’t want him either.

      2. Okay Candy, how about these words to describe him: FUBAR. Or Walking Cluster F***. BTW I respect the office of president but not the man currently in that office.

  5. Well, that’s completely messed up. The word “invasive” would actually be demeaning, not Asian. Asian would actually give some credit to the part of the world where the fish is from. To call it “invasive”, to people who know it’s from Asia, would be the insult, implying that we consider all things Asian to be “invasive”, and don’t even want to use the term “Asian”. How insulting is that? As usual, the libs have things perverted and twisted and backwards. Why do we let them take things over?

    1. some people are scared to be called names like ‘hater’ etc. – remember – liberals were put here to be made fun of – like school girls. Where else could we have so much fun from grasshoppers?

          1. Actually he is right, except he left of the last sentence,,,”At the great expense of others.”

          2. Bernstein is dead and should have stuck to music.
            SPARKS FROM WYATT’S TORCH — LIBERALISM RECLAIMED!
            What this country needs is a truly LIBERAL president and congress and judiciary!
            And I forgive the reader for suspecting that this must be some kind of bad joke!
            But the Democrats believe in “statism” — not “liberalism.”
            Strip them naked of their “liberal” camouflage and behold their ugliness.
            They benefit from the imprecise American political terminology —- we say “the government” here in the USA —- rather than “the state.” And that’s a dangerous problem.
            Famous brands of statism in recent centuries have been Nazism [National Socialism], socialism, fascism, communism, progressivism, and welfare statism —- these last two are mixtures of fascism and socialism.
            Note that these statists are all joined-at-the-hip and on-the-same-page in their common contempt, enmity, and disdain for human rights.
            Liberalism, on the other hand, is a political philosophy of small, cheap government —- it is a constabulary —- and the job of a liberal government is to enforce human rights within its own jurisdiction.
            What “human rights?”
            I speak of the unalienable and perfectly-natural and universally-valid human rights of life, liberty, private property, and the pursuit of personal happiness.
            A slave is owned by someone other than himself — but a free man owns himself.
            The first article of private property is “the self” — and all other rights are derivatives of and flow from these cardinal rights.
            These rights —- The Rights of Man —- are the gift of nature or of nature’s god —- and they belong to all human beings, everywhere.
            Show me a Democrat who subscribes to all of the above, without qualifications or weasel words.
            Observe the connection between “liberty” and “liberalism.” The words “liberal” and “liberalism” were hijacked by the Democrats, socialists, progressives, and fascists, long ago —- and it was the mistake of conservatives and libertarians to let them get away with it.
            “Liberalism” requires the defense and promotion of “individual liberty” — and today’s fake “liberals” are busily and maliciously destroying it.
            It is long past time that liberalism be reclaimed, defined, and explained by its rightful owners —- by the champions of freedom, i.e.: not by Democrats.
            Friends of freedom! Friends of peace-through-strength! And friends of prosperity!
            Declare yourselves to be “liberals,” then —- and kick over the bloody coffee tables — and overthrow and trounce the Democrats in 2014 and 2016! Destroy them!

          3. They are really describing heaven, which they will never see as long as they persist in denying God and his statutes.

          4. What’s god got to do with it, got to do with it ,god’s just a made up delusion! Sounds like a hit song to me !

          5. Really? A better day? Aren’t liberals Pro-Abortion? So doesn’t that mean they are actually for no future, at least for the undesirables? More tranquil night? I guess living in a prison camp could be tranquil, death is often viewed as a tranquil right? What a load of crap. Bernstein was a great composer; however, he also appears to be ignorant of what Liberalism really is.

        1. Bernstein knew “nothing” about “liberalism.”

      1. “the language”? What language would that be, since we have never grown the balls to declare the Kings English as our official language?

        1. Mexico was quick to recognize the King of Spain’s language as their official language. As were several other countries south of the U.S.

          1. yessir…but my point is that, in over 230 years of existence, the United States has never had a so called official language. That needs to be changed.

          2. Hi. The CA Ed Code states that English is the language of instruction in America. Perhaps we should inform current Administration.

    2. I was thinking the same thing JDS….it seems more hurtful now than it did when calling it “Asian”. Political correctness in this country is for people with minds like a 3 year old child with a development problem. Too much idiocy going on.

  6. One might think that Minnesota residents would want their elected officials to spend their taxpayer funded time accomplishing more beneficial ventures, such as job creation, better budgeting of taxpayer $$. Maybe just staying home and not doing more damage to the state.

    1. Wish Minnesota was more in tune with removing the radical terrorist element from within its borders instead of worrying about a damn fish.

  7. WE wouldn’t hear Asians complaining about such things…Most are Americanized into our culture long ago. Hard workers and have pride in their families and accomplishments and country.

    1. Asians…or East Asians (i.e., Orientals…for some reason, a word that means Eastern in Latin languages has become a taboo word). Asia is a vast continent, that stretches from the border of Europe, to the Middle Eastern sands of Saudi, to the cold, cold regions of Siberia. Thus, a Russian with European features is an Asian, as is an Emir in Saudi Arabia or a Persian in Iran, or a Turk (most of Turkey is in Asia).

        1. My point was, which Asians were offended? The Russians? The Chinese? The Persians, Afghans, Indians, Turks…or Israelis?

  8. I think the Democratic party needs to change their name to the Communist party and change their donkey symbol to the communist hammer and sickle symbol. The party having a name that implies democracy is offensive to those of us who enjoy our freedoms.

  9. Unreal—instead of renaming fish, or baseball teams or the Kenney museum to Obama ,,,,how about getting Jobs , closing our borders , etc. The Major things that need fixing ………….

  10. I guess that this is the kind of laws that you get when you put idiot liberals in charge. God help us all if we can’t take back the Senate.

  11. Is our Senate nuts or what/ Redskins and Asian Carp keep the names. Don’t they have anything else to do. Joblessness, war, terrorist threats, immigration send backs and you are worried about an Asian Carp!!!!!

    1. I can’t believe a group of grown men actually sat in a room and had a serious conversation about this. Unbelievable. I wonder if any one of them was waiting for someone to say psych lol just kidding.

  12. The proposed name change actually makes it offensive. Everyone else will still call it the “Asian Carp” and when someone refers to it as the “Invasive Carp” that creates a link between “Asian” and “Invasive”. “Asian” is not an insult to anyone.

  13. I am offended by John Hoffman’s name. The name is disrespectful to women. It needs to be changed to John Hoffperson.

  14. A simple four paragraph article with at least three typos,( were instead of where etc) Why is it so difficult to post an error free article?

  15. What ? This has to be a hoax right ? A state legislative body actually agreed to pass this bill ? Everyone who voted in support of that needs to be bitch slapped and fitted for a straight jacket …… Minnesota, you should be ashamed of yourselves for voting in such a group of dumbasses ………… oh wait, Jesse Ventura was your governor once right ? yeh, you got what you deserved then ……….

    1. Webster: CARP to talk complainingly. What better name is there than
      “John Hoffman’s Carp” . Shared by: WmPThompson

  16. I know many Asians, none of them are offended by being referred to as Asian.
    But somehow calling a fish from Asia, an Asian fish is somehow more offensive than referring to an Asian native species as an invader

  17. Why not call it the “jumpin CARP” since ALL carp are Asian. What’s the difference between a politician and a carp? One’s a scum suckin bottom dweller, the other’s a fish!

  18. If it is PC to change the name from Asian carp to invasive carp, does that mean that African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans and so on will be called Invasive Americans from now on???

    1. Invasive Americans or Invasive (home country) Trespassers. I prefer the Invasive (home country) Trespassers. It describes them. (Invasive Mexican Trespassers (example))

  19. they just like to show off when they do something like this so every one can see just how smart they are on how they spend the tax payers money. i bet they were all smiles when they got that done.prob. had to take the rest of the day off for being so over welled with joy. its not every day they get something done that is so important to do for the people. something like this will help every one sleep better at night now.

  20. In Europe and England ME moslems are referred to as “Asians” in order to refrain from admitting that crimes being reported are committed by moslems. Very much to the dismay of Asianse, by the way. This in in reference to the usual suspects, the mohammedans.

  21. since the fish is technically an immigrant of sorts, shouldn’t it get government sponsored healthcare? free food and services that the average American doesn’t get without a fight?

  22. He,he,he,he. I got it now. The democrats won’t change the Burro symbol because that is their identity. Well, for all the confussion!

  23. November’s coming. Time to unload these guys. When they can’t accomplish anything meaningful for the nation, this is what they resort to so they can tell their home state/district that they have so many bills introduced, debated, and passed.

  24. Maybe They WON’T CHANGE the NIKE and HERCULES MISSILES… Could be damaging to THE GODS… Oh MY GOODNESS…. Maybe we need to change the word POLITICIANS (BECAUSE THEY AREN’T) TO ASSHOLES, WHICH THEY ARE.

  25. Well I for one find that ,Liberals and Leftists offend me.So I think that they need to be put somewhere else and not in my Idea of Constitutional Government.

  26. When I first heard of this I didn’t think it had a chinaman’s chance of passing but I was wrong. It’s a slippery slope when one changes history.
    I was offended by the Washington Redskins name, they should just be called The Redskins. No need to associate brave Native American Warriors with the slime that inhabits DC.

  27. Obama crap! Might be fitting also! Never before in the histroy of this country has so much crap been made so important while real problems go unresolved and lied about! Welcome to Hope nad Chnage!

  28. Wow. After the article theres an ad that offers an asian dating service. And thats not offensive but a fish is . This country has terrible priorities.

  29. Another distraction to simply take the attention away from anything truly important….that is going on in the world. The BLM are destroying America’s Wild Horses and Burros. Wolves are being heinously murdered by the thousands….when they were previously protected. All of this due to Greedy Individuals and Unethical Politicians. I could go on….Innocent people being murdered Worldwide by Radical Islamics, America’s Economic situation, the illegal aliens issue……Yet, we hear more and more of stupid crap like this.

  30. Ultra liberal deviant freaks are losing their damn minds. It is called the Asian carp because it is a native of Asia.

  31. Horse Manure, now the Illegal Mexican’s will sue as invasive refers solely to them! So happy to se Democratic Legislators passing something so moronic with the turmoil in America, unfortunately the Democratic voters are of the same lack of mental functionality to fail to vote the overly paid moronic representatives out of office!

  32. Im sure the Asian people will be pissed cause they like that fish so much, so you melting fool are so inept, at your job you can not see the forrest because of the trees…do some work like getting rid of Obama an some of his asshole friends,,,oh he has no friends…

  33. This is what these morons are doing with our tax dollars. How low on the IQ poll can they go? When they get to Heaven and St. Peter asks what was your greatest accomplishment in life and they say changing the name of a fish I doubt the trumpets will blow and the gates will open. I see the image of a cloud trap door opening and even Satan saying it’s purgatory for you idiots because I only let in people smart enough to know the difference between wrong and stupid.

  34. Liberals are idiots. Ooops I’m sorry, where is my politically correctness, liberals are
    a stupid person.
    synonyms: fool, ass, halfwit, dunce, dolt, ignoramus, cretin, moron, imbecile, simpleton; informaldope, ninny, nincompoop, chump, dimwit, dumbo, dummy, dum-dum, loon, dork, sap, jackass, blockhead, jughead, bonehead, knucklehead, fathead, butthead, numbskull, numbnuts, dumb-ass, doofus, clod, dunderhead, ditz, lummox, knuckle-dragger, dipstick, thickhead, meathead, meatball, wooden-head, airhead, pinhead, lamer, lamebrain, peabrain, birdbrain, mouth-breather, scissorbill, jerk, nerd, donkey, nitwit, twit, boob, twerp, hoser, schmuck, bozo, turkey, chowderhead, dingbat, mook; vulgar slang
    asshat. Just in case I didn’t offend every liberal.

  35. I thought the people from Minnesota were smart people, I was wrong they are sheep and don’t have the brains of a piss ant. I think they should change the name of the U of Minnesota, the name gofers offends me and I think the Viking are offended also. You people are morons.

  36. The reason idiots like this are gaining ground, is because people don’t go in and speak up. When stuff like this is taken to court, there needs to be people who will go in, and say their piece too. That’s the reason why these ridiculous laws are being put on the books.

  37. Be careful of what you say their is a guy name stone who is reporting everybody who he thinks is saying things against odamhim some how he got by the abortion Doc. Best way to deal with this person in just act like he is not their.

  38. Good heavens! Don’t they have anything better to do with their time there in DC? Frankly, “invasive” is more hurtful than Asian. Our country may be going down the tube, but when we land at the bottom we will surely be totally “Politically correct”. That a shame.

  39. give me a break…just when you think they can’t possibly say something more stupid than the last stupid statement…

  40. “What is next for these wackos? Changing the racist name of the Black Bear? ”
    Black bear? BLACK BEAR??? NOW PEOPLE ARE SAYING THE BLACK BEAR IS OFFENSIVE??? When Ole Miss retired Col Reb and replaced him with a black bear (so as not to offend anyone), I told them that was offensive too. But, would they listen to me??? NnnoooOOoooo. Now, here I see that apparently someone else thought so too.
    Way to go Damn Jones.

  41. … tsk… stop using your American dollar bill as it is unconstitutional to use them… “Gold and Silver coins only”… LOL

  42. This can’t be real. So many people out of work and the government is wasting money renaming a fish? Tax dollars paid for this carp nonsense?

  43. And this is what we are paying those idiots to do? Waste time with stupid resolutions because their brains are fried. John Hoffman, a Democrat of course, has nothing better to do, can’t come up with something positive for this Country. How about working on getting the Marine out of Mexico, coming up with a plan to protect Christians from ISIS, getting to the bottom of the Benghazi scandal. Too much work for you????

    1. A bunch of know it all’s telling scientists “we are passing a law to rename a species science has called “Asian Carp” to something else”.
      These pseodo intellectualls have the mindset that they have all the answers.
      Hell, if that was the case, start renaming the constellations too. LOL

  44. If I lived there I would be really p*ssed that someone wasted my tax dollars on this and i would be sure to vote against him in the next election.

      1. “It is a wicked thing, that flesh should entomb flesh and we make our bodies the houses of murder. For indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love. Blood will not nourish blood. Do not take away life that thou would not give, every being has a right to live”
        -Pythagoras

  45. I think I will be offended at being a “Caucasian”
    1 often offensive of or relating to one of the traditional divisions of humankind, covering a broad group of peoples from Europe, western Asia, and parts of India and North Africa.[so named because the German physiologist Blumenbach believed that it originated in the Caucasus region of southeastern Europe.]
    • white-skinned; of European origin.
    2 of or relating to the Caucasus.
    3 of or relating to a group of languages spoken in the region of the Caucasus, of which thirty-eight are known, many not committed to writing. The most widely spoken is Georgian, of the small South Caucasian family, not related to the three North Caucasian families.
    I am really an “American-American”

  46. Ok so what about, British Bull dog, Siamese cat, Siamese fighting fish, Black pudding, white pudding, Frankfurters, Canada goose, American black duck. Black bird. Why do Americans think they are doing good when all they are doing is interfering in what has nothing to do with them. Do something useful with your life.

  47. So, the whole world has a name for them, the encyclopedias and encyclopedia type websites all call them by the same name, but some fucktards are going to rename them in ONE STATE………

  48. Someone please give the Minnesota legislature a quarter so they can buy a clue. If the name of the carp species from Asian lands has to change to “invasive carp”, then logic would dictate Asian Americans would henceforth be known as “Invasive Americans”. The problem is, then we would confuse them with the illegals and terrorists invading our country. When will the madness stop???

  49. It’s ethnic cleansing… removing from our future generations any remembrance of the Indian braves and the tribes that are a colorful and excellent part of American history. People need to learn English: in America Indian means those people; Redskin when it was taken for a name of the teams (at Miami University too), was never intended to be derisive. Russell Means, http://russellmeans.com/ explains that anyone born here is a native American.

      1. You contradicted yourself. Your article says “not actual Native Americans” — so you lied in the article because there ARE “actual Native Americans” who want the change.

        1. Um, I didn’t write the article so either you pointed this comment to the wrong person or you are ever more stupid then I thought.

  50. Drug addictics are addicted to drugs, the overweight are addicted to food, an alcoholic is addicted to booze…..a liberal is addicted to F…king….they can’t see a cigar as just a cigar…they have to F.. with it.

  51. The “Redskins” name-change fight was raging long before Obama took office. Your bias against the president (and maybe black people in general) is showing through with that statement.

  52. Invasive, unneeded, unwanted. Crowds out and kills native species. ” Illegal Alien Sucker ” Is a good new name.

  53. it sounds to me like the years that the members of the Minnesota legislature has spend to many winters in the cold weather and there brain has frozen and never thaw out . brain dead idiots.

  54. I’m going to hell! I’m sitting here with my Norwegian forest cat, eating a Dutch apple pie and drinking a black Russian. Damn! My German shepherd just came in and knocked over my game of Chinese checkers.

  55. Kind of makes a point of too much pay not enough work, this kind of frivolous law when unemployment and government costs need to be the main agenda is insanity on display.

  56. So stupid…guess the African crocodile or africanized bees are next…get your panties in wadded and actually worry about something useful to the country…like fixing the boarders or welfare dependency or the homeless and hungry. Who gives a crap that a fish has its origin in its name.

  57. I suggest we change the name “legislator” to “kleptocratic sociopath”,
    “state representative” to “junior bloodsucker”,
    “State senator” to “senior bloodsucker”,
    “US Congressman” to “morally bankrupt shithead”,
    “US Senator” to “treasonous, self-serving, rat bastard socialist vermin”.

  58. Mean while the other 49 states will still call it Asian Carp making Minnesota out of step with the rest of the country.

  59. Crazy. Prediction: they’ll pass this bill. But the DOD appropriations bill will stall, be delayed, and we’ll witness a continuing resolution come October. And the appropriation bill supports our troops!! We’re being led by morons. The only ones that don’t know they are morons are they themselves. That’s what makes it so scary. Heck, even pigs know they stink.

  60. Just to let you know, in Los Angeles,The most densely populated Native
    American ghetto outside a Reservation, Every Native HATES the term
    REDSKIN, And that goes for our families back home. Don’t use lies about
    native americans without actually citing a native american. I’m not
    saying anything else about your article. But that first paragraph is so
    racist…(Signed Sundance BeKinnie, Native American and user of Online
    Networking since the age of 9 in 1989.. Interviewd by LA TImes in 1993
    for a racism in Los Angeles anrticvle, And I Performed for Nelson
    Mandela. So…Learn to make an argument that actually makes sense.
    That’s what sixth grade english taught me about Essays.)

    1. You may not have noticed that the paragraph you state needs to cite an actual native american has two section where the wording is blue in color. You may be unaware that this is a sign that those words are actually hyper links. Despite your experience with online networking (since the age of 9) you may not have known that double clicking those blue letters will take you to two full length article that are the basis for making those comments. I hope this help.

  61. It is good that the goofy wackos take the legislative session and time to attempt to do this sort of thing. While it costs tax money, just think of the real and permanent harm they might do without such niggling issues to befog the thinking of the leftist.

  62. That is NOT an asian carp! thats just a common carp just like the goldfish you buy for your kids… Idiots making up stories again…..:<

  63. The Roosevelt Elk was imported from China and turned loose in the Olympic National Park. So, I think the Asian Carp should be renamed the Obama Sucker. That way, only the suckerfish would be insulted.

  64. If the damn Legislators spent this much energy and time and effort on protecting our borders as they do on crap like this our country would not be in the mess it is in now. You can change the fish name to “pretty boy” but is will still be an damn Asian Carp.

  65. This is what you get when you elect progressive politicians, they are pathetically mental imo, my proof is stories just like this.

  66. Well, this particular carp originated from Asia, so it seems natural that it would be called an Asian Carp, as it has been for centuries. Since this has allegedly offended someone, it’s now called an Invasive Carp, but it still originated from Asia (you can’t change that) therefore, it is now an Invasive Asian Carp which sounds more offensive to me, but hay, I”m not Asian.

    1. How about “Carp from Asia”? They can’t claim to be offended by that…can they?? I know, it says the same thing, but in a different way. Liberals love to do that.

  67. I’m Asian American and I am not offended by a fish. I am offended now that they’re dealing with bullsh*t issues instead of other more important issues.

    1. Oh, you mean like the Republican Congress that has voted 50+ times (at a cost of millions of $$) to repeal the Affordable Care Act? And then obstruct any bill that could help people get jobs and/or earn a living wage?

      1. Sorry to burst your liberal bubble, but it isn’t the House Republican Congress that is obstructing. Harry Reid refuses to even put the bill up for a vote in the Senate if Obama doesn’t like the bill. He won’t take any chance of some good bill actually passing if it comes from Republicans. So, he has sat his bony ass down on a lot of VERY good bills because they didn’t pass the liberal Obama agenda test. Check the facts. I am telling you the truth.

  68. “Asian carp” so called because the species originates from Asia, to “invasive carp”
    Invasive species eh?
    how about the Liberal Carp, or the Low-Information Carp….or the Mexican Carp..
    no, I like the the;
    Liberal Carp…the ultimate invasive species. akin to Locust invading prosperous land have destroyed where they came from (as Mark Levin puts it)

  69. PC is first a disease of control freaks. PC is also abuse, bullying, hate think. It seeks to form dysfunctional codependent relationships by making others responsible for “our” feelings. It’s a licence to club those who you disagree with. It’s a tool of emotionally unhealthy, psychologically unstable personalities. It’s the same curse that plagues battered women. It is the hallmark of dysfunction, and dysfunctional people trying desperately to drag us into their delusional world, their hell. We are insane to allow crazy people to influence us in this way.

  70. I live in Minnesota and it takes a lot to embarrass me. I mean, we had Jesse Ventura as Governor for pete’s sakes! But THIS embarrasses me! Interesting that now we should no longer call something what it actually IS. What is next? I’ll tell you. Eurasian Milfoil. Chinese Fire Drill.

  71. It seems to me that it makes sense to rename this carp what it is – an invasive species. Also, Legislators represent ALL the citizens in their district/state. This was an issue brought to some of them by people who are offended by the name. Read this article instead of just taking as “fact” what this woman, Gina Cassini, has written. At best her article is incomplete; at worst, it is intentionally slanted. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/27/minnesota-asian-carp_n_5045396.html

  72. The Minnesota legislature needs to reflect on why they were elected, and what they are doing in the statehouse. I’m quite sure that there are actually important things that the people of that state need them to concentrate on. “Renaming” a fish is NOT in their job description, no matter what liberal load of politically correct crap they’re telling each other. I’m sure that it would probably be very difficult, if not impossible to actually find an Asian person who is offended by the Asian carp being given that name, since it apparently originated somewhere in or near Asia. These people who voted yes on this issue need to be voted out of office ASAP, as they obviously have their heads up their asses.

  73. Well the Republicans seem
    to focus on women’s vaginas. So why don’t they stay out of our bodies all together. I would rather someone focused on the REAL problems facing america.

    1. republican’s couldn’t give a FLYIN FLIP about your vagina! shame on you, looking at this fish must have reminded you of that thing….Why must your side always bring up your vagina? Is that all you ever think about – how to use it to suck up the on welfare?

      1. I guess you haven’t been paying attention to the Republicans in Texas. It is all about them sticking their noses where it don’t belong. Look up the recent bills that have passed concerning abortion, reproductive rights. It all has to do with women not men’s rights. So if someone wants to change the name of a fish what the hell? Who cares? There are more important issues out there. Shame on you for not knowing what is happening in your own country. What the hell does welfare have to do with anything? Must be your own conscience.

  74. the whole country is aflame and this is what our elected officials worry about….the name of a fish and the name of a football team. vote them all out is right!

  75. Can they STILL be called Asian carp in Asia? You know, Where’re they’re from!!! Or is this a worldwide directive? Don’t answer that… (sarcasm) I know that we are the most important country in the world so everyone should follow our perfect PC example (/sarcasm)
    What about Chinese pheasants? Brown bears, Redheaded woodpeckers, European starlings? Is the Blue Man Group going to protest against Bluebirds? Will the Catholic leaders fight to rename Cardinals? Yellow canaries? Can my cousin Robin protest against robins?
    THE MADNESS!!! WHERE WILL IT END?

  76. So liberals make this racist connection, or in the case, invent it, then project that on to everyone else, and want to change “them” so they feel better about themselves;) …that is insane:)

    1. Yup. All sub-branches of neoliberals do this, including English Nazis and Feminazis. Such pathetic, depraved creatures that need turn to artificial constructs in an attempt to dominate a world they are unfit for in a misguided attempt to feed their starving egos.

  77. More political garbage,BUT,what are they doing FOR the people??? Nothing,they use the time over such bull —-and none for real people concerns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  90. The
    left focuses on trivial items to distract from the real problems facing our
    country caused by the left. Every time the left is involved in any controversy,
    they immediately start yelling “Racist” and call there favorite instigator Rev.
    Douche Bag Al to stir up the minorities and make the white people feel guilty.
    It’s the same game plan they started using as soon as Obummer started his run
    for President. And it worked for way too long. Now, most people, including
    minorities, have figured out the scan. Now when the left needs a distraction,
    they have to bring operatives in to the area they are trying to disrupt. The
    majority of people, regardless of color, are fed up with the lies. They want
    government to get out of their lives as much as possible and let them make their
    own decisions as Freedom loving individuals.

  91. “Invasive” what a great idea! Instead of calling them illegal aliens we call them “invasive aliens”.

  92. Sometime back in the 1990s ( or it could have been the early 2000s…. ) PETA tried to launch a campaign directed at young school children……that referred to fish in the ocean as ‘sea kittens’. SERIOUSLY!

  93. they want to change it to “invasive carp”, who’s bright idea was that to pick that name? hell that’s MORE offensive then what it’s called now, “invasive carp” sounds as if the fish are at war with us, RME I know stupid right? well changing a name of a FISH is even more stupid

  94. Also “unreal” – Terrible, juvenile journalism : “…because it’s ( its ) name….” ; “(The ) U.S. Army Corps of Engineers….” ; “…from spreading into the Great Lakes were ( where ) the fish could do massive damage ( to ) the regions ( region’s ) fishing industry” and “…according to ( the ) Minnesota legislature,…” Who writes this poorly composed material ?

  95. Do the people that are voted into office have nothing else to do? If not then they don’t need to be in session.

  96. I think they should have much more important issues to deal with that are far more necessary than renaming a fish….for crying out loud.

  97. Lol, how is Asian Carp more offending than Invasive Carp… So now they are calling the Asians invasive…
