Confederate flag is on seal of Florida Senate, so why not license plates too?

Those favoring censorship of Confederate symbols know that slavery was not the only issue in the Civil War. These people are just pretending to be stupid.


Good arguments can be made that secession hurt rather than helped the interests of the slave-owners and that the slavery issue was a pretext for secession. Furthermore, many Confederates were not secessionists but were merely supporting states’ rights or defending their states against invasion.


Fights over the censorship of Confederate symbols make objectivity in the interpretation of history impossible.


Also, the Confederate flag is on the seal of the Florida Senate:
