Senate Democrats turn to bureaucratic tyranny to strip Redskins name (ADDENDUMS)

Because they've got nothing better to do? This madness won't end, folks, until this out-of-control government is tossed out...
FitsNews: 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.

This is reminiscent of the Ole Miss removal of Colonel Reb by an overzealous athletics director and his PC posse, with the exception that it wasn't something forced on them through the bureaucratic tyranny of the federal government!

But if we dig deeper, this isn't just a PC issue, but yet another instance where Democrats attempt to erase their past transgressions. For the Democratic Party was not only the Party of Slavery prior to the Civil War, as well as Segregation afterwards, but anybody remember the Trail of Tears? That had Democratic fingerprints on it as well. The first Democratic President, Andrew Jackson, signed the Indian Removal Act of 1830, and over the next 8 years, even through Jackson's successor Martin Van Buren, tribes of the Cherokee, Muscogee (Creek), Seminole, Chickasaw, and Choctaw nations were herded into camps and tormented, burning and pillaging their homes, and forcing them out of the southeastern U.S. to relocate to what would become Oklahoma. With minimal supplies, thousands died along the way.

So around 180 years later, they're feeling guilty? Uh huh. Never mind the utter governmental destruction they've unleashed on every color and creed that doesn't belong to the D.C. Ruling Class...no, they've got more important business to attend to (and distract with), like trampling all over free speech to change a privately owned name that's existed longer than the era of political correctness.

ADDENDUM I: Rush warns, "You let them get away with this, and this is not the end of anything."
"This is not the solution to some cultural problem resulting in the consistent, constant pain of being offended felt by a few people. This will be the beginning -- I should say, actually, the continuation of even more all-out assaults on private property rights if they offend anybody that's enshrouded in political correctness, is a leftist or believes it and simply wants to deny you what is yours.

So you go ahead, you cheer, if you want, the stripping of trademark rights from the Redskins. No one is safe when the protections of a constitutional republic are stripped away. There is no civil society when private property rights and individual rights are crushed at will on a whim by a centralized, coercive government. You take away private property rights and you may as well take away the right to free speech. And that's exactly what has happened here to the Washington Redskins."

ADDENDUM II: Correcting the media misinformation throughout the day, Levin says despite the Obama administration's cancellation of their trademark, the Redskins still own their name and their logo, and if anyone tries to use either, the Redskins can sue and WIN! He explains how...
TRS: Levin argues that despite the Obama administration ruling, the Redskins still own their name and logo and still own the use of their name and logo because of Common Law. And if you try and use their name and logo, Levin says the Redskins will sue you and will win because there is not a court in the land that won’t uphold Common Law.
