Wow, that’s what happens when I spend time on politics, I miss the important stuff.

 

For my part, I never understood that they lost their trademark in 2014. (Source)

I made the flawed assumption that this was once again the Democrats, doing what they do best, absolutely nothing of substance.

I would love to tell you I made this entire story up, that is clearly not the case.

The Fifty Democrat Senators who put their signatures on this hateful legislation must be removed from office at the ballot box.

Being, Democrats, they must cheat to win.

The government cannot censor trademarks on the grounds they may be offensive to some, the Supreme Court ruled Monday in a major decision that could also clear the way for the Washington Redskins football team to maintain its trademarks.

The case before the high court involved an Asian rock band named “The Slants.” The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office originally denying the band’s name, saying it was a racial slur that violated the agency’s policy, based on federal law, that prohibits granting disparaging trademarks.

Justices, though, said that violated the First Amendment.

 

 

 

 

“Speech may not be banned on the ground that it expresses ideas that offend,” Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. said in his opinion for the court.

The American Civil Liberties Union, which supported the band, said Monday’s ruling was a huge win for the First Amendment and prevents the government from policing speech.

“The Slants chose their name to reappropriate a racial slur used against their community, with the goal of deflating the word’s hurtful power,” said Lee Rowland, an attorney for the ACLU.

“The government’s misguided effort to protect minorities from disparagement instead hurt members of that very community by hindering their right to compete in the marketplace of ideas.”

THE END

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    The concept of Free Speech has been tested many times. There are numerous case decided by the U. S. Supreme Court over the years.

    The Free Speech Movement that transitioned into the Filthy Speech Movement in the 1960’s was about saying the word FUCK in a comedy act – Henny Youngman as I recall.

    Anyway the case decided that Free Speech was in fact free and cannot be restricted just because someone objects.
