Let's see what them Dukes is up to next!

Yee-haw! What is that Crazy Cooter (of that old redneck TV show “The Dukes of Hazzard” fame), otherwise known as actor and former Democratic congressman from Georgia Ben Jones, up to now? Oh nothing, just going on CNN to argue in favor of allowing descendants of Confederate soldiers to drive around with the Stars and Bars on their license plates in yet the latest instance of the “Everybody gets a trophy” mentality that has infected America in recent years. Cool, nothing we like more than still arguing over this crap in 2015.

On Monday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case of Walker vs. Texas Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans, Inc. (No, not Walker, Texas Rangers, you comedians.) The Court is considering whether the state of Texas erred on First Amendment grounds when it did not approve for official use a specialty license plate with the SCV’s Confederate flag logo on it.

Wait, Texas did that? Huh.

At issue is the state’s reasoning, which for legal purposes is not “Most of the feedback we received from the public over this design was negative and we have so many other ways of making our state look like a backwards redoubt of retrograde asshattery and holy shit it has been 150 years will you guys get the hell over it already?” Instead, Texas argues that the plate could be seen as “government speech” praising a traitorous regime dedicated to the preservation of the racist roots of America’s burgeoning economic power in the nineteenth century. Or, as the Sons of Confederate Veterans call it, “Our heritage, dangnabit!”

Oh cool.

The 5th Circuit Court originally found for the SCV.

A reasonable observer would conclude that the driver of the vehicle, not Texas, was the speaker honoring the Civil War dead, the panel decided.

And it said the board members had engaged in viewpoint discrimination by adopting the negative view of the Confederate flag as a symbol of racism and slavery, rather than the organization’s view that it was simply honoring ancestors who had fought bravely in a lost cause.

Yeah yeah, heritage not hate, et cetera, world without end, amen.

Which brings us to Jones, who today made a great case for the possibility that all those head injury-inducing car crashes we saw on “The Dukes of Hazzard” were not performed by a stunt driver.

“The Sons of Confederate Veterans is a proud heritage organization, 30,000 members who are descended from those who fought for the Confederacy,” Jones explained. “And we’re not ashamed of that. That’s our family, that’s our DNA, and we are a heritage organization.”

[…]

Jones insisted that his group wanted “reconciliation in the South and among the races.”

“That was what Dr. King wanted, and these tactics that they’re using are very divisive, they’re very offensive to us.”

Yep, Jones is arguing that calling the Sons of Confederate racists and oppressors and Nazis is entirely too divisive, and not what Martin Luther King would have wanted, even though the Confederacy and its founding principles were the living embodiment of racist oppression. Sure, Southern racists made a habit of waving Confederate flags at King and his followers when they were marching for civil rights back in the 1950s and ‘60s. But Jones knows King would have been magnanimous in his eventual victory, because he himself was active in the civil rights movement and “went through the whole thing with Dr. King.”

And if that’s true, we have a bridge in Selma to sell you!

The Supreme Court will likely side with the 5th Circuit, as it has done in similar cases in Virginia and Maryland in the past. None of which changes our opinion that Ben Jones should fuck off back to wherever he has been for the last 20 years and stay there, whining about being the victim until he’s dead, which will hopefully, mercifully shut him up.

    I thought the confederate flag was white upon a field of white.

    Is Ted Cruz’s campaign logo the Stars and Bars flag on fire?

  • Serolf Divad

    I’m pretty sure that the real reason Texas doesn’t want the confederate flag displayed on its license plates is that it doesn’t want to admit that the Lone Star state was ever actually part of the Union. After all, you can’t secede from an organization you were never a part of.

  • Shibusa

    Something tells me that “reconciliation in the South and among the races” means “realizing Cliven Bundy’s dream of making the lives of black Americans better by enslaving them again”.

    According to Jones, he was “very active in the Civil Rights movement” and he “went through the whole thing with Dr. King.”

    (Backing away very, very slowly.)

    • memzilla

      Sheriff Bull Connor and Governor George Wallace were “very active,” too.

    • Dudleydidwrong

      Jones obviously took lessons from Bill O’Reilly. Did Jones also have a ringside seat in the Falklands?

    That was what Dr. King wanted, and these tactics that they’re using are very divisive, they’re very offensive to us.

    And why is Mr. Jones’ opinion of any value again?

  • Callyson

    CNN host Randi Kaye wondered if a ruling in favor of the Sons of Confederate Veterans would “open the door to anti-Semitic license plates, pornographic plates, plates that benefit the KKK.”

    “It ends where common sense ends,” Jones insisted.

    Yes,and common sense says we don’t allow the insignia of traitors on license plates, asshole…

  • Virginia Dreaming

    One year some of our students decided to celebrate Lee Jackson day (yes that is a holiday in VA) by driving around the school in their pickups, flying the stars and bars. When the principal came out of the school they ignored him. When the black assistant principal and football coach came out of the school they all headed for the hills. I think this pretty much sums up a great deal of the people who want to show the confederate flag.

    • SeriousSummer

      Wow! Lee Jackson is Chancellor of the University of North Texas! I didn’t know Virginia already celebrated a holiday for him.

  • Callyson

    “The District of Columbia’s license plates include the phrase ‘Taxation Without Representation’; the Speech Clause does not require the district to begin offering license plates with messages that praise the district’s lack of voting representation in Congress,” Texas argues.

    Wow, signs of intelligence in Texas. I hope this phenomenon will occur more frequently in the future: maybe there’s hope yet for the state that gave us Ann Richards and Molly Ivins…

    ETA: Or, maybe Texas still has a ways to go:

    Jan. 19 is an official state holiday: Confederate Heroes Day. There are numerous monuments to Confederate figures at the state Capitol, the challengers contend, and the battle flag that Texas so fears etching on license plates is on sale at the capitol gift shop.

    Fine, as long as like their confederate forebears they are disenfranchised from voting until their loyalty to the union is proclaimed, the desire to have the confederate flag on your license plate being evidence of the contrary.

  • Anarchy Pony

    As long as they change it to Sons of Supporters of Slavery, that’s fine.

  • cousin itt

    Really? Another Ted Cruz post?

  • Sheesko

    Cooter has been in Rappahannock County, VA for the past 20 years, unfortunately. His damn car shows up at all the neighboring county fairs all the damn time. But enough about that putz.

    Several states have this license plate design. To me, shucks, if we’re gonna have those, why not also have “I (heart) ISIS” plates, with a silhouette of a dude holding up a beheading knife. Or the ever-popular Nazi swastika armband logo with “Seig Heil!” spelled out in Fractur between the holes for screws at the bottom edge. Wait, what? You mean enemies of the United States of America are only okay if they were defeated a long time ago? Huh.

    why is there so much, what, tension between the yoonighted states and the confederacy? i propose re-uniting the nation in united unity with this one simple trick: united states day.
    it will commemorate the day the u.s. of americans once again became a yoonighted state.
    will take a bit, because the south quit so many times from which to choose:
    9 apr: lee quit
    21 apr mosb y quit
    26 apr johnston and a bunch of others quit
    4 may AL, MS and East LA quit
    5 may, the gulf quit
    10 may davis didn’t actually quit, but he was captured
    11 may N GA quit
    26 may kirby smith quit
    23 jun stand and wait quit
    6 nov the whole south just gave up and quit
    the real president, somebody Johnson, said it was over the aug 20
    so we have many potential dates (too many, really, they just kept qujitting over the period of several months) to celebrate the demise of the traitorous traitors who finally just quit, but i vote for 20 aug, united states day. yay.
    finally, something that can once again bring us together as a nation. what took so long?

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      Actually, that might be a brilliant strategy to shut these fuckwits down:
      If enough black people started flaunting the stars & bars, the duncefederates would very quickly lose their enthusiasm for it.

      • mtn_philosoph

        And license plates are speech, according to previous court rulings. The relevant question here is whether the customized, personalized versions of license plates issued by the state represent “government speech” or “private citizen speech.” It’s a gray area.

      • mtn_philosoph

        States have been plastering their own messages on their license plates for decades now. We are all familiar with countless examples of that. US license plates stopped being just plain and simple identification tags a lonnggg time ago! State license plates have an extensive history of being used as carriers of “government speech.” Thus it is not much of a stretch to regard messages on special issue custom plates as having some kind of state sanction and for the state to be concerned about that.

        http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/host.madison.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/5/1e/51e2adb4-d7db-516f-be3c-6388888d49f1/521cc58e4e24c.preview-620.jpg

    • mtn_philosoph

      The tags, though, are issued by the state and constitute legal and official evidence of vehicle registration in compliance with state law. Can the state therefore restrict what they say? This is the “government speech” argument.

      The state doesn’t choose the message, the registrant does. The registrant chooses to display this message and pays extra for the ability to do so. This is the “private speech” argument.

      It’s a thorny issue involving a constitutional gray area.

  • Walter Wellstone

    The Confederate flag is offensive to me–and I’m white. It offends me because it represents an orchestrated campaign to destroy my country by a group of racists who refused to let my brothers and sisters of African descent to be treated as human beings. Those fuckers dared to take arms against the rest of us in order to break the union. My ancestors fought against them; they survived the war and were proud to have kicked their sorry asses fair and square. Today, a different group of racists use the Confederate flag as a symbol of hate–don’t give me that “heritage” crap–and that’s why every patriotic American should be offended by it. To those who wrap themselves in it I have only one thing to say: Fuck you.

    • Bezoar

      I am right there with you. We should, however, allow them to proudly display the white flag of the Confederacy.

    • Bo Duke

      23 million vs 8 million and it took 5 whole years…and Lincoln needed to free the slaves in order to help the Union win. And what makes you think the North was any better as far as racism is concerned?

      • Walter Wellstone

        Racism is everywhere but there’s a difference when you go to war to keep it institutionalized, like the South did. That’s why the Confederacy and everything it represents is offensive to me.

  • Pierre_de_Fermat

    Jones wasn’t a dreadful rep (unlike the gang now), but he is just as caught up in this CSA stuff as the others. There was a sentimental notion of the Civil War peddled in the south for years (only marginally related to the actual war, its causes and aftermath); he no doubt grew up in it. Fewer people believe that stuff now and even fewer will in the future. So no doubt, the Sons of Confederate Veterans feel they are being “persecuted”.

    I would like to see a revival of the ‘Dukes of Hazzard’, but with a twist; it would be called ‘The Dupes of Hazzard” and would be hilarious true-to-life adventures of a couple of dumbfuck good ole boys with their low IQ resentment of nearly everything and their adventures in trying to score enough drugs to dull the pain of being themselves. It would be great.

    I have German ancestors on my mother’s side. Does that mean I can get a swastika on my license plate at renewal time?
