Virginia Revokes Hitler-Saluting License PlateS

The Virginia DMV recalled this now-infamous racist Ford F-150 license plate after negative buzz on the web pointed out the coded pro-Hitler message. Seriously, Virginia, you needed the Internet to realize this guy might be racist?

In case you were curious, the license plate is "14CV88," which signifies a heaping of racist nutbaggery. The "14" refers to a white supremacist leader's 14-word motto: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children." The "CV" stands for "Confederate Veteran" and the "88" signifies the eighth letter in the alphabet (H) with the double-H meaning "Heil Hitler."

The Confederate battle flag on the license plate is something you can get for $10 if you're a card-carrying member of the "Sons of Confederate Veterans," an open-minded group we can only imagine is horrified at the connection to racial oppression of any kind. [Washington Post]
