One Suffolk, Virginia man, Kevin Collier, commander of the Stonewall Camp of the Sons of Confederate Veterans refuses to trade in his ignorant Confederate flag license plate. He apparently did not get the memo that the South lost the war — actually, after watching this video — he probably couldn’t read it.
Thanks to Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, it is now a misdemeanor to display the Confederate flag on a license plate. This change came after a racist, Confederate flag loving, piece of shit killed nine African-Americans in a South Carolina church this summer.
Collier is one of over 1,400 people in Virginia, who have yet to trade in their license plates for one that doesn’t scream racism. He refuses to trade in his hate plate, even after receiving a letter giving him until October 4 to swap it out:
I can’t fight on the battlefield like they did, but I can fight however I can in modern times and I’m not giving them plates up.

If you can manage to keep your composure and not laugh at this bumbling idiot’s attempt to read the notice he received, his argument will definitely make you crack:
Next thing you know, they’re going to say you can’t wear blue on Monday…or you can’t wear yellow on Thursday. Where’s it going to end?
Did I say mind-blowing? I meant, completely irrelevant rebuttal.
The Confederate flag was flown proudly by Southerners refusing to give up slavery. Civil War historian and Pultzer Prize winning author was quoted by The Civil War Trust as saying:
The Civil War started because of uncompromising differences between the free and slave states over the power of the national government to prohibit slavery in the territories that had not yet become states.
This flag represents hate, ignorance, and racism. Though allowing them to keep their hate plates would make it easier to spot idiots, proudly displaying the symbol only sets us back as a country. If heritage truly is what they are trying to display — may I suggest a British flag?
