Mississippi Confederates Request Special Edition KKK License Plate
Mississippi is always day dreamin' about the good ol' Confederate States of America. Those were simpler, way better times, when you didn't need a "license plate" for your souped up dirt bike truck, and you could drive drunk, legally, all the way to the weekly "kill a queer 4 Christ" charity roadkill BBQ at Pastor Dan's trailer park drive thru church. Jefferson Davis just didn't give a fuck if you chose not to register your automobile with the Confederate DMV -- so long as you were a white landowner with lots of slaves. Things have changed (a little)! Now you need to register your NAS-CAR with the government, which is terrible. But hopefully soon the good people of Mississippi will be able to obtain Nathan Bedford Forrest Ku Klux Klan special edition license plates, so that they can "ghost-ride the whip" in style! What?
The Mississippi Division of Sons of Confederate Veterans wants to sponsor a series of state-issued license plates to mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, which it calls the "War Between the States." The group proposes a different design each year between now and 2015, with Forrest slated for 2014.
"Seriously?" state NAACP president Derrick Johnson said when he was told about the Forrest plate. "Wow."
Seriously, dude. Seriously. [ABC]
