On the week that Islamists murder over ‘offensive’ cartoon, Obama’s DOJ intervenes against Redskins’ logo


If I were to author a dictionary, I know what I would put under “irony”…

From the Los Angeles Times:

The Native Americans fighting the Washington Redskins over the team’s trademark protections in a federal lawsuit got an important boost Friday when the Justice Department declared that it would intervene in a key aspect of the twisted legal case.

Dana J. Boente, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, filed a notice in the lawsuit on Friday that the Justice Department would defend the constitutionality of a key provision of the Lanham Act, which bars trademarks that may disparage or bring people into “contempt or disrepute.”

What a perfect week for Obama to come out against the Redskins’ name and logo because it’s “offensive.”
