The "Honor the Klan" License Plate

It may be sold in Mississippi. The license plate honors Gen. Forrest, who besides being a dealer in slaves and the perpetrator of a massacre, founded the Ku Klux Klan. Note that he wasn't just a member, as the people who asking for the plate say, he was a founder the goddamned hate group.

I'd make a crack that the Germans would then be expected to eventually commemorate SS-Standartenführer Joachim Peiper, but that would be defaming the Germans, who have been much more forthright about addressing what happened under the Third Reich than the Southerners have ever been about slavery and the Confederacy.

Forrest was a homicidal maniac, in a time where viciousness was a rule he was at the top of his game
KKK, Fort Pillow racist, murderer so IT figures that a KLanBagger state would want to "honor" this particular cretin and traitor...
and I must say they (the confederates) did their thing with Gawd's blessing...One Confed General (Pendelton was it...was an episcopal bishop...)
Yea, the Germans also said Gawd was on their side...gott mit uns
