The Redskins really need to change their name and House Democrats are on it

posted at 4:11 pm on March 21, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

Simmer down, guys: The political-correctness battle over the Redskins’ team name has been raging since what feels like time immemorial, but Congress is here for you with all the right answers. These Democrats want to wear down the football team’s resistance, war-of-attrition style:

A group of House Democrats on Wednesday introduced a bill that would prevent the term “Redskins” from being trademarked, a move intended to put pressure on the Washington football club to change its name.

The Non-Disparagement of American Indians in Trademark Registrations Act of 2013 is co-sponsored by Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.), and comes days after a federal trademark panel heard arguments over whether the team name was a slur. The panel could potentially overturn the team’s trademark, which would erode profits by allowing other businesses to sell apparel and goods featuring the Redskins name.

Earlier this month, Norton said the team “should consider” a new name.

… But nothing happens without pushing and shoving … I am a fan of the Redskins. I’m just not a fan of their name,” Norton said.

Come on, now. Whichever way you come down on the decades-long conflict over whether or not the Redskins’ mascot amounts to racially offensive disparagement, can we all at least agree that it is definitively not the legislative branch’s job to arbitrate these kinds of disputes? Maybe? This bill is obviously and specifically aimed at a specific body for a specific perceived offense, but why these federal lawmakers think the onus is one them to effectively punish the Redskins for daring to defy them is just not right. I’m pretty sure that’s what we have a court system for, and there is indeed already a case going through the proper channels.

Doesn’t sound like the bill even has a shot of getting off the ground, but hey, maybe these federal lawmakers have a few more high-priority, nationally-focused things they could be worrying about, perhaps?

The Indians were the losers anyway. How about the Washington Cavalry? We went through this same crap with the Marquette Warriors. How the Indians ever got the right to the term warrior, I have no clue. I would have just changed the mascot to another reference of warrior. Of course I’m sure PETA will someday go after them for using Golden Eagle.

My alma mater (Miami University) caved on this years ago. We were the Redskins, and, indeed, descendants of the Miami indian tribe (or most of them) had no problem with the school’s use of the name. The mascot, a tribal chief, was entirely dignified. In fact, I think the mascot by tradition had to be a student of Native American descent.

Oh, well. MU has been the Redhawks for at least two decades. Ugh.

More important, we’re $17 trillion in debt, Keystone’s not authorized, and nobody has spoken to the Benghazi survivors.

D-fusit on March 21, 2013 at 4:36 PM

I don’t think EHN really expects her proposed bill to go anywhere. This is just grandstanding.

Even if it did pass the House, Senate and get signed by the President, I doubt it would pass legal muster.

To wit:

The Constitution of the United States, Article I, Section 9, paragraph 3 provides that: “No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law will be passed.”

“The Bill of Attainder Clause was intended not as a narrow, technical (and therefore soon to be outmoded) prohibition, but rather as an implementation of the separation of powers, a general safeguard against legislative exercise of the judicial function or more simply – trial by legislature.” U.S. v. Brown, 381 U.S. 437, 440 (1965).

“These clauses of the Constitution are not of the broad, general nature of the Due Process Clause, but refer to rather precise legal terms which had a meaning under English law at the time the Constitution was adopted. A bill of attainder was a legislative act that singled out one or more persons and imposed punishment on them, without benefit of trial. Such actions were regarded as odious by the framers of the Constitution because it was the traditional role of a court, judging an individual case, to impose punishment.” William H. Rehnquist, The Supreme Court, page 166.

“Bills of attainder, ex post facto laws, and laws impairing the obligations of contracts, are contrary to the first principles of the social compact, and to every principle of sound legislation. … The sober people of America are weary of the fluctuating policy which has directed the public councils. They have seen with regret and indignation that sudden changes and legislative interferences, in cases affecting personal rights, become jobs in the hands of enterprising and influential speculators, and snares to the more-industrious and less-informed part of the community.” James Madison, Federalist Number 44, 1788.

rbj on March 21, 2013 at 4:22 PM

From what I’m told, as a formal noun it’s a soft C (the Boston Celtics, Glasgow’s Celtic FC), and an informal noun gets a hard C (celtic music, celtic folklore, etc.).

As for the Redskins…Been a Redskins fan all my life. I’d like to think that by now it’s so far from the racist term it began as that changing it is pointless. I dunno, just speaking for myself, I can’t bring myself to hear the name of a football team and automatically attach it to a racist term. If anything, this is probably the best way to defeat racist terms. Attach it to such a banal and pointless that it loses all context.

I think they ought to remain the Redskins. However, as an effort at truth in advertising, since they reflect the occupants of our nation’s capitol, I think they should be required to change the logo. It should go from the Native American head with feather to a hammer and sickle. (And, maybe they should lighten the color a little to more closely match L’Internationale.)

Because while it might be argued that it is a generic law, it is most obviously and effectively targeted at a single person or organization. The Constitution forbids a law that singles a person or organization out in that manner.

Congress can pass a law which says “No one may drive their car on Tuesdays”, but they cannot pass a law which states, “Shump may not drive his/her car on Tuesdays.”
