Reading or publishing this opinion listed as a micro-aggression on campuses in 3...2....1.....

“Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express the thought we hate,” Alito said in a part of his opinion joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas and Stephen Breyer.

Writing separately, Justice Anthony Kennedy said ban on disparaging trademarks was a clear form of viewpoint discrimination that is forbidden under the First Amendment.

“A law that can be directed against speech found offensive to some portion of the public can be turned against minority and dissenting views to the detriment of all,” Kennedy said in an opinion joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonya Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

Are there 2 nolans on this board? I'm pretty sure there was a nolan posting here that did not think the Redskins should be able to keep their name. If I got you mixed up with the other guy, my apologies.

You're correct. Nolan and the unusuals have selective memory when it suits them.

I've never said the Redskins should lose their trademark. I don't get offended by team names.

It appears the Usuals have conflated legality with good taste.

I said it makes business sense for the NFL to change the name if the trademark were to be no longer legally enforceable. That's Business 101-type stuff.

That's your typical derpy response of creating a business crisis and then calling it a business decision. Thug.

because it affirmed the 1st amendment.

Whichever way SCOTUS ruled could be considered as a protection/interpretation of the Constitution, as that is their very role. The opposite decision may not align with someone's opinion, but it doesn't mean that the Constitution is necessarily not upheld.

If there were only 1 way to rule in every case to protect the Constitution, then there would never be a legitimate complaint about a ruling. Sometimes the Court decides between 'protecting the Constitution' and 'protecting the Constitution'.

Nolan said that as a fan, he favors the name changing. He never said the government should force them to change the name.

I hope you can see my eyes rolling from there. It's spectacular. There is 1 way to rule in a first amendment case to protect the constitution. You're just making things up, there isn't a constitutional basis to rule in favor of banning speech. Do better.
