WASHINGTON REDSKINS’ FOOTBALL TEAM TRADEMARKS REVOKED …

All hail Barack Obama …

Because the leader of the “free” world has nothing else on his plate, he’s re-engaging his vendetta against the National Football League (NFL)’s Washington Redskins for having what he considers to be a politically incorrect team name.

Never mind that only 30 percent of Native Americans agree with him …

Oh, and never mind that the government shouldn’t have a damn thing to do with sports.

All that is lost on Obama, apparently, who has launched a major salvo in his war against the white man (Daniel Snyder) who has a team of (mostly) black men named after red men.  By a 2-1 vote, Obama’s U.S. Patent Office has ruled that the Washington Redskins’ nickname is “disparaging of Native Americans” and that trademarks for the name must be canceled.

Unreal …

This is your federal government at “work,” people.

“(Redskins owner) Daniel Snyder may be the last person in the world to realize this, but it’s just a matter of time until he is forced to do the right thing and change the name,” U.S. Senate majority leader Harry Reid said.

Ah, yes … the mantra of big government: Do what we command, or else.  In fact such a negotiating position is eerily reminiscent to the terms laid out to the original “Redskins” back in the day.

The contemporary football Redskins remain defiant …

“Today’s ruling will have no effect at all on the team’s ownership of and right to use the Redskins name and logo,” a statement from the team read.

That’s true … although if the Redskins lose their appeal of this ruling, it would make it virtually impossible for them to protect the profits associated with team merchandizing.

Snyder has vowed he will not change the team’s name – and polling shows that 80 percent of Americans support his position.

Obama’s activist trademark judges apparently don’t care what the majority of Americans (or the majority of Native Americans) think.

“While this may reveal differing opinions within the community, it does not negate the opinions of those who find it disparaging,” trademark judge Karen Kuhlke wrote. “The ultimate decision is based on whether the evidence shows that a substantial composite of the Native American population found the term ‘Redskins’ to be disparaging.”

Again … unreal.  This is pure thought control: Government-imposed censorship of a private entity – all to kowtow to a “minority within a minority.”

Ridiculous …
