Guest Host: Steve Roberts
The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case that pits the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles against a Civil War veterans group. The Sons of Confederate Veterans requested approval for a vanity vehicle license plate decorated with a Confederate flag. The DMV rejected the design, saying many Texans consider the flag to be a symbol of slavery and racism. Lawyers for the veterans group argued that its license plate design is protected under the First Amendment of the Constitution. Join us for a discussion on free speech and the Confederate flag.
