Americans are proud of their rights and freedoms. Freedom of speech has always been held as one of the most basic tenants of being American. Patriotic men and women have given their lives to preserve our right to freedom of speech.
Liberal snowflakes have recently discovered that they cannot silence patriots by claiming that their words make them uncomfortable.
The Supreme Court of the United States threw out a federal prohibition on disparaging trademarks as a constitutional violation in what’s being touted as a major free speech ruling involving a band called The Slants.
The court ruled 8-0 in favor of the Portland, Oregon-based Asian-American dance rock band, which had been denied a trademark because the government deemed its name disparaging to people of Asian descent. The band challenged that rejection as a violation of free speech rights under the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment. The Supreme Court agreed and have allowed the band to use the name The Slants.
This decision could have an effect on the Washington Redskins.
The NFL team filed a legal challenge to a 2014 decision by a U.S. Patent and Trademark Office tribunal that canceled its trademarks, calling them disparaging to Native Americans. A lower court put the Redskins’ dispute on hold pending the outcome of the band’s case.
Now that we have a ruling, it looks like the Redskins will be around for a bit longer.
Yes I’m Right reports:
Freedom of speech is one of the most basic tenant of the United States’ unique and beautiful system of government. Allowing the citizens of a nation to criticize the government for it’s actions makes a lot of sense when you consider that we’re supposed to be deciding who runs the government.
