The Virginia “Good Ol’ Boy” Almost Got This One Through
The owner of a Ford truck bearing the license plate 14CV88 will have to find a new message after the Virginia DMV, last Wednesday, canceled its earlier approval of that series of letters and numbers.
This photo of the truck went viral on Conservative Blog sites and finally came to the attention of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, an advocacy group for American Muslims. On Wednesday morning, the group complained to the Virginia DMV that the plate contained a white supremacist and neo-Nazi statement.
A few hours later, the Virginia DMV agreed that the plate contained a coded message: The number 88 stands for the eighth letter of the alphabet, H, doubled to signify "Heil Hitler," said CAIR's Ibrahim Hooper. "CV" stands for "Confederate veteran." The plate was a special model embossed with a Confederate flag, which Virginia makes available for a $10 fee to card-carrying members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. And 14 is code for imprisoned white supremacist David Lane's 14 word motto: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children."
I should also make note that the truck shown in the photo is in a parking spot reserved for the handicapped, but does not have the requisite disability tags. I would also make a wager that this person is also a BIG Supporter of the Tea Party movement because they speak for him!!!
