From IRS to Patent Office - government persecution of the "politically incorrect"

2 posts in this topic

We have come to expect the politicization of tax agencies exploiting their sweeping powers to harass and hound enemies in personal and political vendettas, now we see that the US Patent and Trademark Office has revoked six long standing trademarks of the Washington Redskins baseball team as "disparaging to Native Americans". The franchise has had the name "Redskins" since 1932 when the team was in Boston.

Some of us can agree that the name "Washington Redskins" is offensive, but the solution to that is for the team to leave Washington. George isn't happy about the misuse of his name either.

Redskins lose trademark, Harry Reid says team will be 'forced' to change name

Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid called the team name "racist." He went to the Senate floor just after the trademark decision was made and said the team will be forced to change the name.

"Daniel Snyder might be the last person in the world to realize this, but it is just a matter of time until he is forced to do the right thing and change the name," said Reid.
