Outrageous is the Only Word to Describe What’s Happening to Our Country
Disgusting might be another word I’d use.
Check it out:
The only thing standing between that becoming the majority viewpoint and governing body and what have you, is the Tea Party, is the Republican base. Beinart says if the Republican base continues to oppose this, they’re just gonna anger people even more and hasten this demographic shift.
The point is the Republican leadership, I think, has bought that. What else would explain their open support for amnesty? They must believe what the Democrats are telling them, and whoever it is telling them, that they’re never gonna win another election if they don’t get some Hispanic votes. The way to get Hispanic votes in Washington is to stand for amnesty. It’s absurd, but they obviously believe it.
So here comes this Redskins thing. Now, again, to put this in its proper context: The Redskins name has not been taken from them. They can still call themselves the Washington Redskins. What the Patent and Trademark Office did is take away their property rights to the trademark. It’s no different than if they decide to tell the Dallas Cowboys, “You don’t own ‘Dallas Cowboys’ anymore because it offends Indians.
“It offends Native Americans. So the ‘Dallas Cowboys’ name, since it’s offending people, violates political correctness, you can’t own that anymore,” which means, then, that anybody can use it. You can open a restaurant called the Dallas Cowboys. You can start your own T-shirt line, make your own cap, whatever, and call it “Dallas Cowboys.” They don’t own it — meaning, they would lose a lot of money.
Since they don’t want to lose a lot of money, the idea is they would change their name to something exclusive that the Regime approves of, and they would get a new trademark. That’s the thinking on this. This is just step one in the Regime trying to get that name changed and trying to force the Redskins into doing it. But in the process, what this is is the purposeful taking of private property.
The Redskins own the trademark, and it was granted them by this very Patent and Trademark Office. Now they just unilaterally, because of essentially five people, said, “You know what? You’re offending people, offending political correctness. You can’t use it anymore. We take it away.” You’re right. That kind of power, in our Constitution, does not exist. But this is my point when I say that the Obama presidency is just now getting started, and it’s outrageous. I’m like you. I try to come up with a way to describe my outrage, and I fall short of anything.
