Texas Group Sues to Allow Confederate Flag License Plates

Just like Brock said they would.

The L.A. Times reports the Texas division of the group called Sons of Confederate Veterans, a 30,000-member group out of Tennessee, is now filing suit saying the state DMV infringed on the group’s right to free speech by rejecting their plate.

“The 1st Amendment clearly protects controversial speech,” the group said in a statement to the Times. It cited the DMV board’s approval of a plate that “is offensive to Native Americans” because it honors the Buffalo Soldiers, the all-black cavalry that fought Native Americans in the 1800s.

“The board seeks to bar the Texas SCV from expressing their viewpoint while allowing all other groups to express their viewpoint. This type of restriction is exactly the type which the 1st Amendment is designed to erase,” the statement said.
