We should just go back to the simple two-color plates anyway. Way easier to ID states at a glance.

War's over.
You cowards lost. White flag and all.

The DMV gave them the answer when it made the change. Their customers don't get to decide what they print. Yes, they actually said something to that effect in the announcement.

Good luck claiming that any group has a right to force the state (or anyone else) to publish what they demand.

It doesn't even make sense as a court case and their attorney's are dishonest for not advising them of this.
 
2021-03-08 7:11:19 PM  
Ah, there we go.  First linked article at the bottom.

"DMV will continue to recognize the North Carolina Division of Sons of Confederate Veterans ("SCV") as a civic organization entitled to the issuance of a specialty plate," the DMV said Monday. "However, SCV's classification as a civic organization does not entitle it to dictate the contents of the government speech on that specialty plate."
 
2021-03-08 7:11:51 PM  
No.  The government should not be sponsoring symbols that tell black people you want to kill them.  F*ck you.

Just tell the racists that they need to file their lawsuit in the courthouse bathroom which is accessible to all regardless of their gender.

Why is that even a group?  I don't think Germany has Sons of Nazis.  The Confederacy was a terrorist group.  F*ck them and f*ck anyone who thinks this should be recognized outside of some sad sack's mom's basement.

They should use that rule to put this on the plates.

No assholes. And you can't have nazi symbols either. farking terrorist garbage.
 
2021-03-08 7:15:49 PM  
Let them have it, but it must also have TRAITOR printed bigly and boldly below it.
 
2021-03-08 7:16:24 PM  
Now I'm not saying those plates don't exist, because they clearly do, but I've lived in NC for almost 2 years total and I have never seen one on a car.

Its just economic anxiety, I'm sure.  These are surely the people the left should be allying with. Not those evil democrats and liberals.
 
2021-03-08 7:19:41 PM  
How about we compromise and issue them t-shirts with a large black "L" on them?
 
2021-03-08 7:20:25 PM  
How dare you call them racists!

They do, but they keep having to change their name because their government bans the organization after finding out who they are.  It happened just last year in fact:

Click.

Hmm, let's see...

Kevin Stone, SCV state "commander"...
- alleged the state ... has always been hostile to SCV members
My response: "Good."

- says "Hating our group's logo is equivalent to hating our group's members."
My response: "Yes, and?"
 
2021-03-08 7:23:46 PM  
"Hating our group's logo is equivalent to hating our group's members"

Okay?

"Symbols can often have more than one meaning. To assume the Confederate Battle Flag is uniquely offensive is to validate only one viewpoint and thereby discriminate against others."

Kinda like how the Nazi Swastika is borrowed from the Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism divinity symbol?
 
2021-03-08 7:28:16 PM  
They should also get rid of the stupid "First in Flight" at the top of plates. The Wright Brothers did all the work in Ohio. They just went to NC to fly it in more favorable conditions.
 
2021-03-08 7:29:11 PM  
Here you go, guys. We'll let you keep your vanity numbers/letters and just change the plate design:

Hating bunkie means you hate 71 million voters.

They sure latched onto this one. It doesn't make any sense but nowadays they don't have any.
 
2021-03-08 7:30:40 PM  
The thing that gets me whenever this dumbass debate comes up is that isn't even the confederate flag. There's a reason Six Flags doesn't fly that flag, and it's because it wasn't the confederacy's flag. It was a battle standard that was popularized by-wait for it-the goddamn KKK.

Even their heritage and history isn't on their side in this debate. They lost. Get over it.

I think it more important that the government should not be sponsoring symbols of a hostile, foreign, terrorist power that killed American soldiers and civilians.  In no way should NY be forced to adopt Taliban license plates, for example.  Or Hawai'i ones for Imperial Japan.
 
2021-03-08 7:40:53 PM  
You're not entitled to put whatever TF you want on  government-issued plates.

Not a hard concept, and there's no constitutional issue here, really.

Ha!  Good for the German government.  And that was kind of my point - the German govt doesn't support it, while ours does.
 
2021-03-08 7:49:07 PM  
At what point does the federal government just ban the damned thing as the damned enemy combatant symbol that it is?? Can someone get an ISIS plate?

Yep, that's definitely my point.  They're signs of deep hatred and no one should be subject to seeing that crap on their roads.

This is not complicated. Tags are not allowed that can reasonably be perceived as inciting road-rage incidents. It's nothing personal.

We can let them keep it if we're allowed to burn down any car displaying it. As per tradition.

I live in NC as well, in a somewhat rural area, and I've never seen one either. I guess that means I've gotten lucky these past 13 years. I don't know that I could stop myself from flipping off the car that carried it.

The DMV, a government entity, doesn't get to engage in viewpoint discrimination.  So long as they meet the viewpoint neutral requirements then the government doesn't get to bar them.

First Amendment 101.

So you can just paint anything you want on your DMV issued license plate?

That might be the stupidest strawman to ever exist. You should feel bad for it but you probably won't because you are too busy patting yourself on the back for your stupid farking strawman that you created.
