THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee: “We cannot allow the state [Texas] to issue a symbol of intimidation.” Texas State Sen. Rodney Ellis: “Allowing these license plates would be allowing the people who lost a war to write history. “I’m glad they (the Confederates) lost,they were on the wrong side of history.”
A group called the Sons of Confederate Veterans created the design to honor Confederate veterans of the Civil War. Nine other states have approved the design and the group has won lawsuits in states where they were initially denied.
On Nov. 10th, the Texas DMV will vote on the design. Rep. Lee plans to present petitions and a letter from other state legislators opposing the design.
Gov. Rick Perry has not commented on the matter. James Dixon, head of Community of Faith Church in Houston. “It amazes me that he has not yet spoken out against this insanity, and he attempts to talk about representing all of the United States of America,” said James Dixon of the Community of Faith Church.
This is a bit surprising to me — moving backwards I’d say. Perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised.
