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.”

In other words, the future must not belong to those who slander Native Americans!!!

Thankfully, Native Americans only put up drum circle* protests instead of shooting up offices.

*that’s not racist, they actually did that.
