Should the government be allowed to terminate trademark rights for material some may deem “offensive” (Washington Redskins controversy)?

No, this is a gross miscarriage of justice.  This is an overreaching federal government that has no respect for private property rights or the Constitution.  This administration is driven by emotions and far left liberal ideology.  As I said before, if the free market feels a trademark is offensive, consumers won’t buy the product.  The ticketholders don’t have to go to the games and no one has to buy tickets.  At the end of the day, the fans don’t have the moral outrage that the media and this administration have.  Most people don’t care.  I know a lot of Redskins fans, and they’re outraged that their team is under attack.

 

Is this all the government has to worry about right now?  We have terrorists taking over the Middle East and plotting to kill us.  We have $20 trillion in debt.  We have enough problems to worry about.  We sure as hell don’t need the government worrying about whether the Redskins are offending someone.  I’m offended that these rappers refer to me as a cracker, but is the government shutting down the rap industry?  No.  This is sheer hypocrisy on the part of the administration and liberals, but then again, I would expect nothing more of them.

 

If the media isn’t outraged by this violation of private property rights, they’re not fit to be in the business.  If the administration can get away with this, what’s to say they won’t shut down a network if they deem it offensive?  This is absolutely ridiculous.  I hope the Supreme Court hears this case and sides with Dan Snyder.
