Free speech is entirely too subjective for reliable and consistent government regulation.
The Supreme Court will soon review a ruling by U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, in which certain brands are deemed unconstitutional. An Asian-American band referred to as, "The Slants," has recently brought this issue to the center of the liberal media's attention. But the Supreme Court's ruling could have bigger implications on the name of another organization: The Washington Redskins.
Any decision made by the Supreme Court will spill-over into the Redskins’ separate petition. Both privately-owned organizations argue that the Lanham Act, which regulates trademarks, violates the First Amendment's protections of free speech.
Just because a person finds a brand offensive, does not mean the next one does. Creating a federal law on the assumption of groupthink is unjust.
Support this petition if you want to protect the Redskins and the First Amendment!
