Obama’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board which last month jumped into the debate about the evils of the football team’s name and summarily declared the name “Redskins” to be “offensive” has now admitted that there was no cause for its actions.
This shows how Obama’s government is a left-wing, activist government that does not respond to we, the people, but actively looks for ways to tear down this country and remake it in their lord’s image. We now find out that when the buttinski trademark board that illicitly ruled that the Redskins name is somehow “illegal” didn’t have a single complaint from the public before the department made its activist ruling.
The Washington Times submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to find out what sort of correspondence the office had during its decision to cancel the trademark status of the team and found that the only reason the board jumped into the controversy is because of a lawsuit but no volume of complaints from the public to substantiate its claim that the name is now viewed as “offensive.”
“The board made its ruling last month,” the paper wrote, “based on a legal challenge from Amanda Blackhorse and four others, who petitioned the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office against the Redskins, calling the team name offensive to American Indians.”
So, what we have here is a left-wing, PC activist cajoling a left-wing, bureaucratic agency to engage in social engineering without any imputes from we, the people.
Worse, this department is also set up to exclude public comment on its activist endeavors. It is wholly unaccountable and can seemingly do whatever it wants, proof again that our government is so far above the people that we all have no influence upon it.
Agencies like this need to be torn down and rebuilt on a democratic–not a Democrat Party–model.
