Georgia Approves New Confederate Flag License Plate
Georgia officials have once again approved a specialty license plate featuring the Confederate battle flag, infuriating civil rights advocates and renewing a debate among those who believe the symbol honors Confederate heritage and those who see it as racially charged.
Georgia must be jealous of places like Alabama and Mississippi and is striving to become the most backwards state in the country. This disgraceful initiative is just the latest indicator. There have been others.
The thing about the confederate flag is that it symbolizes everything that's wrong with the country, poor education, high access to guns, beer-drinking inbred rednecks, misogyny, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, creationism and general intolerance.
The confederate flag should be seen with the same shame and embarrassment in America as the swastika is seen in Germany.
