I hope and expect that the court will rule in favor of free speech. Perhaps such a ruling will result in states doing away with vanity plates altogether to avoid these situations. The case makes for strange bedfellows as I find myself largely in agreement with H.K. Edgerton, though I would not be surprised to learn that he is not the author of this editorial.
Having read a few postings on the Confederate heritage pages I want to make one thing clear. A ruling in favor of the SCV is not a victory for Confederate heritage or for individuals who consider themselves to be still fighting their ancestor’s war.
Regardless of how the court rules, it will be a VICTORY FOR OUR CONSTITUTION AND THE RULE OF LAW.
