Unsportsmanlike Conduct Against the Redskins

The Washington Redskins lost more yardage in their drive to protect their name from perpetually aggrieved leftist busybodies. On Wednesday, a judge canceled the NFL franchise’s federal trademark registrations. U.S. District Judge Gerald Bruce Lee’s ruling upheld a previous decision by the federal Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. But the clock hasn’t run out yet, and Redskins President Bruce Allen promised an appeal. “We are convinced that we will win on appeal as the facts and the law are on the side of our franchise that has proudly used the name Washington Redskins for more than 80 years,” Allen said in a statement. But Lee’s ruling presented an opportunity for the Redskins’ hometown paper, The Washington Post, to give a full hands-on-hips editorial lecture to the team. “The name is going to have to change,” the paper finger-wagged, “and the sooner team owner Dan Snyder puts himself on the right side of history, the better it will be for everyone.” That “right side of history” blather is what leftists always use when they have no other argument for their policy preference. But the Post also issued what we view as a veiled threat: “No matter what a court eventually determines about the ability of the team to peddle its gear, the damage caused by using a hurtful name will continue.” Because they and their fellow race-baiting travelers will never shut up about it. It’s the same with the Confederate flag and those who oppose same-sex marriage — the beatings will continue until you submit.
