Texas DMV Considers Confederate Flag License Plate

Friday, June 24, 2011

Gov. Rick Perry must be serious about running for president and he intends to win the KKK wing of his party.

The Texas DMV is considering a new license plate that would feature the Confederate flag. The idea, ostensibly, is to honor Texans who fought in the Civil War. However, some people say they are offended by the idea.

“It brings back the anger from which it stands for — the Civil War — and I don’t think it should be allowed,” said Donald Dunaway.

The Confederate flag is about the size of a baseball on the Texas license plate and would be clearly visible. The Texas Sons of Confederate Veterans designed the plate and argue the goal is to remember Texans who died fighting in the Civil War.

All the plates you see on Texas cars must first be approved by the state.

Houston Pastor James Nash says he hopes it isn’t approved.

“It shouldn’t be because it’s still offensive to a lot of people,” he said.

The president of the state’s NAACP chapter said the flag on Texas license plates would be humiliating and demeaning.

What’s next from Texas? A “Proud to Secede” license plate?

    They say “Texas is a whole, other country.” I would argue, Texas is a whole, other century. Are they serious about this? Whatever.

    What do you expect? It’s Texas.

    I find the idea of a Confederate Flag license plate to be offensive as well. I also find Rick Perry offensive, as well as most of Texas!

    Maybe they can have a whole Texas asshole series of license plates?

    The KKK Hood
    The Burning Cross
    The noose

    Totally offensive all!

    Texas is a shit hole.

  5. I’m from Texas and no it isn’t a shit hole. Yes, we have a governor that I’ve been trying to vote out of office since he first got in but aside from that it’s not a bad state to be from. However I will not have anything with a confederate flag on my car. We weren’t even part of the confederacy and I could care less about the Texans who fought in that war. They should have stayed home.
