Virginia Demands Drivers Return “Racist” License Plates… Gets Smacked Down Hard
Freedom of speech now seems to be a thing of the past. Increasingly, the government is trying to regulate what you can and cannot say and do out of concern that it might “offend” someone.
Virginia is the latest battleground in the war against free speech in the Obama years. WAVY reported that the government of Virginia demanded that drivers surrender license plates that have a Confederate flag on them.
Drivers had until Oct. 4 to turn in their license plates and replace them with one that meets government standards. Drivers who failed to do so run the risk of being charged with a misdemeanor if they are pulled over while driving with the license plates.
Of the 1,600 Virginia residents who received letters telling them to surrender the license plates to the oh-so-morally-superior government, only 187 have actually done so.
Kevin Collier is one of the many who has refused to turn his license plates in. He says that if he gives into this demand of the government, then there is no telling what might happen next.
