Redskins celebrate! SCOTUS rules government can’t deny ‘offensive’ trademarks because bully libs say so

The Washington Redskins got a big boon to its fight to keep its trademarks after a Supreme Court ruling for a rock band.

On Monday the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Asian-American band, The Slants, whose trademark was denied by the USTPO because it deemed the name to be disparaging to Asian-Americans, the Washington Post reported.

The court ruled that the denial was a violation of  “a bedrock 1st Amendment principle: Speech may not be banned on the ground that it expresses ideas that offend,” Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote in the unanimous 8-0 decision.

Justice Neil Gorsuch did not rule on the case as he was not on the court when the case was argued.

“We have said time and time again that the ‘public expression of ideas may not be prohibited merely because the ideas are themselves offensive to some of their hearers,’” Justice Alito wrote.

The decision is seen as a victory for the Washington Redskins football team, who had its trademark revoked by the USTPO because it deemed it disparaging toward Native Americans.
