SCOTUS “Slants”decision could be a trademark touchdown for Washington Redskins

David MenziesMission Specialist

A recent  U.S. Supreme Court ruling on trademark censorship could possibly clear the way for the Washington Redskins to maintain their trademarks even though the case at hand wasn’t directly related to the football team’s troubles. 

The justices ruled that just because someone deems a trademark “offensive”, that’s no reason to censor it.

Watch as I explain what happened when the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office denied a trademark to Asian-American band, The Slants, based on what they had determined was an offensive anti-Asian slur.

The decision noting the Patent and Trademark office was overstepping its powers might also be a trademark touchdown for the Redskins and a win for sports-fans who don’t ascribe to political correctness.

We’ll learn the fate of the Redskins trademark tussle in the near future and much to the chagrin of Generation Snowflake and the social justice warriors, this Slants decision confirming there’s no right NOT to be offended, suggests the ’Skins nickname shall also prevail.

Go ’Skins Go!

SJW’s are offended on behalf of groups who are not offended themselves…. all this manufactured outrage is tiresome.
Glenn Craig said in part, “It is really disgusting that the SCOTUS even hears of it, much less that they are obliged to give it full hearing. Goes to show just how petty , piciune, and trivial the causes of the SJWs really are.”
Glenn, I agree 100%

@Kelly Webber….exactly Kelly….who cares……apparently the SJWs do…..but if nobody takes them as seriously as they take themselves there really is no problem.

But the problem is that SJW litigation lawyers smell blood in the water whenever petty, trivial, picciune shit like this arrises.

All it is going to take is for one of these professional sports teams to cave and fold. Then the rest will buckle like parliamentarians in a whipped vote.
