    US Department of Commerce Rules White Pride Offensive

    San Bruno, Ca.—Civil rights leader Lou Calabro of the European/American Issues Forum has learned that the US Department of Commerce (USPTO) has made a final ruling on an application for a Trademark that the words White Pride, are “offensive and therefore scandalous;” the application #78/368298 was filed by the Honorable Justin B. Moritz. His appeal was rejected.

    Commerce Dept. Attorney Barbara Rutland, (ECom105@uspto.gov or (202) 482-2000, based her ruling on “a Lexis/Nexis datebase and a search of the Internet using the search engine www.google.com, [and found] the WHITE PRIDE element of the proposed mark is considered offensive and therefore scandalous.”

    They need to focus on "Black Pride" "Black Power" "Black Supremacy" "West Indian Pride" "Hispanic Pride" etc., and argue racial discrimination.

    If they don't want to take that route, they could always argue that it's about Colour pride. "Rainbow Pride" and "Black Pride" both can be used in such an argument; oh, wait, I forgot! One cannot use their own rulings against them. Brilliant. :

    I imagine the dates are somewhat important in this, as those trademarks may have been registered in the darkest days of "reverse racism" as it is called--when everyone but whites were given everything they wanted. Boo hoo, everyone but white people are victims. :frown: They may not be willing to issue new race-based trademarks to anyone at this point, but I find it hard to believe that would be the only influence..

    Recently the Black Panthers received a new trademark for a BBQ sauce with the name "Burn Baby Burn"

    The Oakland-based group applied for the trademark last year with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
    They were anti-societal racist militants.. er, wait, I mean "oppressed minorities". eyes:

    The self-inflicted double standard on race in the West is so tragic it's almost comical.

    Darkest days? Sir, those days are still ongoing. Nothing has improved.

    They are perfectly willing to give non-whites similar trademarks, as you have already cited.

    This is (one of the many reasons) why pro-white activists should focus on positive self-disction instead of speaking endless crap about Negroes, Jews, etc. (although it's fun).

    What is the reason for this situation? I have had a long rumination on this question, looking for an answer beyond historical contingencies. And here are my conclusions.

    We live in democracies. In these democracies, all men are said to be equal. Now why, in such a context, the Whites as such are so much a target? Is it because the White race is so evidently superior to all other races that its very existence contradicts the philosophical foundations of democracy?

    Hatred for the White is not a pathological situation in a democracy, because it is hatred for the superior. Any kind of undiminishable superiority has to be destroyed, and so the White race does. A natural phenomenon must be annihilated so that the metaphysical principles of democracy prevail. In such a view, anything that goes against the White race is welcome.

    White pride is contrary to the reign of mass equality, whereas black pride, for instance, is nothing more than a joke, and as such deserves to be encouraged. There is nothing in Nature that matches the concept of black pride; therefore, such a vindication cannot constitute a menace for metaphysical equality.

    You just cannot be White in an egalitarian system. Either the White or the egalitarian system must disappear. The only egalitarian system possible would be exclusive to Whites (like ancient Greek democracy) or excluding them.

    I really wonder how the so-called White 'preservationists', who refuse to acknowledge inequalities between races, explain the current situation described on this thread, i.e. the double standard.

    White Pride is Offensive and Immoral

    The United States Patent & Trademark Office refused to award a trademark for the phrase “White Pride Country Wide.” And the ACLU refused to assist in overturning this injustice & blantant anti-White stance by the US government.

    If you are looking for more evidence that the United States government is biased against white people, you can add their decision in my trademark case. In February, 2004, I applied for a trademark on the words “White Pride Country Wide.” I did it as an exercise against political correctness. I intentionally did not choose “white power,” “white supremacy” or “the white race” because of the negative connotations of those terms. Trademarks can be denied to offensive phrases.

    When I later searched United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) records, I found that “Black Power,” “Black Supremacy,” and “La Raza” (Spanish for “The Race”) had all been approved by the USPTO and been found not to be offensive. The USPTO had also approved and registered “The Black Panther Party” and “Burn, Baby, Burn,” the party’s slogan. The Black Panthers had assassinated white police officers but neither term was found to be offensive or immoral. To me, “white pride” was a non-offensive, positive term, or at least I thought so.

    On December 23, 2004, I received my Christmas present from the USPTO. In an Office Action prepared by Barbara Rutland, it denied my trademark, ruling that the “white pride” part of my request was “offensive,” “immoral,” and “scandalous.” Here are her very words:

    “Section 2(a) Refusal

    “Registration is refused because the proposed mark consists of or comprises immoral or scandalous matter. Trademark Act Section 2(a) U.S.C. 1052(a); TMEP 1203.01. According to the attached evidence from a Lexis/Nexis database and a search of the Internet using the search engine www.google.com, the “WHITE PRIDE” element of the proposed mark is considered offensive and therefore scandalous.”

    My Appeal

    On January 1, 2005, I decided to appeal the USPTO decision, but not before doing some research. I found that that the following “pride” terms have all been registered as trademarks by the U.S Government:

    “African Pride,” “African Man Pride,” “Asian Pride,” “Bahama Pride,” “Black Pride,” “Brazilian Pride,” “China-Pride,” “Chippewa Pride,” “Choctaw Pride,” “Colombian Pride,” “Cuban Pride,” “Dakota Pride,” “Dominican Pride,” “El Salvador Pride,” “Ecuador Pride,” “Gay Pride Apparel,” “Guyanese Pride,” “Havana Pride,” “Honduran Pride,” “Indian Pride,” “Jamaica’s Pride,” “Jewish Pride,” “Kwanzaa Pride,” “Long Beach Lesbian and Gay Pride,” “Mayan Pride,” “Mexican Pride,” “Native Pride!,” “Nicaraguan Pride,” “Orgullo Hispano” (Hispanic Pride), “Orgoglio” (Hispanic—’Great Pride’ (supremacy?)), “Qisqueya Pride” (Dominican Republic Pride), “Rainbow Pride Coach,” “Red Pride,” “San Diego Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride,” “Spanish Pride,” and “West Indian Pride.”

    The factual evidence for my appeal was overwhelming, or at least I thought so. It seemed as though the federal government wanted everybody to have pride, except white people. It seemed to be a clear case of discrimination.

    USPTO denies appeal

    In February 2005, the USPTO issued their “FINAL OFFICE ACTION.” It was again prepared by Barbara Rutland. The USPTO upheld its original denial, explaining:

    “… prior decisions and actions of other trademark examining attorneys in registering different marks are without evidentiary value (emphasis added) and are not binding upon the Office.”

    In plain English, the USPTO was saying that their own records cannot be used against it. Imagine a taxpayer being audited by the IRS. Could he sit back and say, “Go ahead, audit me, but you can’t use my records against me”?

    I lost my $1,300 non-refundable trademark application fee.

    ACLU denies assistance and adds insult

    My next step was to seek outside help from the Minnesota branch of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). I sent a brief letter to the ACLU-MN summarizing my case and asking if they were interested. They initially said they were willing to review the case, so I sent them pages of documentation. I thought I might have a chance since the ACLU prides itself on defending the rights of the little guy. I am white, male, heterosexual, married, employed, native born, English speaking, Christian-valued, have no criminal record, and am a retired law enforcement officer. I could be the perfect “token” case outside their mainstream clientele, or at least I thought so.

    In March 2005, the ACLU not only turned my case down but took the opportunity to slam white people and Christians. Renee Hamilton, legal assistant for the ACLU-MN, wrote:

    “Thus, when the PTO examined Moritz’s mark, their rejection of his mark was reasonable given that such a slogan has just but one meaning i.e. superiority of what he term (sic) ‘the white race’ over all other races and their brand of Christianity over the other religions.”

    The ACLU was fully aware of all the other “pride” trademarks I had listed in my documents. If a “pride” trademark had been turned down for any group of people, other than whites, the ACLU would be in court screaming “Discrimination by the United States Government!”


    Center for Individual Rights (CIR) provides assistance

    My next step was to seek help from the Center for Individual Rights. They are the conservative response to the ACLU. They are political opposites but much smaller than the ACLU. I corresponded with the CIR through mail, email, and telephone conversations. In June 2005, the CIR politely and professionally declined my request for help, but because of monetary, not ideological considerations.

    Yet another pathetic and unabashed example of the racial double standard we are subjected to the feculent end of.

    Apologies for committing thread necromancy, I just double checked the original post date.
    A rebirth is coming, the Thulean Phoenix shall arise from the ashes of the Third Reich, empowered and inflamed by the wrongs levied against our people since the fall of German National Socialism. Prepare yourselves, Folk of Thule, our time is nigh.
