He Had The Same License Plate For 25yrs. Suddenly The Government Is Saying It’s Offensive…

I have never been the type of person that has had a vanity plate because to be quite honest with you I have never put all that much thought into what my license plate said.

What my plate says on the back really means about as much to me as whether my favorite movie channel is on channel 205 or 207. I really could not care.

That being said, there are a lot of people that take great pride in their vanity plates and for the kind of people that like that thing it’s something they try to take with them their entire life.

I knew a guy once that had a vanity plate on three separate cars that he owned over a period of twenty years that was an abbreviation of the name of his business.

Now, there are some things that should never be allowed to be put on a license plate because they are just plain obscene. However, what do you do when you have had the same plate for decades and suddenly you are told that your name itself it obscene?

Via AWM:

One Canadian man simply wanted his last name on his license plate. He paid for it and got the plate and put it on his car. But not long after that, officials from Nova Scotia, where he lived, called him and told her that he was required to remove his license plate. The reason for their change of heart? They now found his name to be offensive.

Political correctness continues to plague people across North America. And while getting a license plate that truly is offensive or has a racially unacceptable slur in it should be deterred, do you think this Canadian man should have been allowed to keep his license plate because it was his name.

For 25 years, he was driving around with the vanity plate. But when the PC police got their talons in the Nova Scotia Registry of Motor Vehicles, the man got a threatening note (threatening for Canada at least) demanding that he change his plate.

They told him that people “can misinterpret it as a socially unacceptable slogan.”

So what is this man’s name? Lorne Grabher.

“A complaint was received outlining how some individuals interpret [the name] as misogynistic and promoting violence against women,” an email that was sent to CBC News by a spokesman from the Department of Transportation (DOT) stated.

But Grabher refuses to bend for the PC police. He said the license plate was a gift from his father. And he wants to proudly display his name while driving.

But Canada wants him to stop.

“With no way to denote that it is a family name on the plate, the department determined it was in the public’s best interest to remove it from circulation,” the statement from the DOT stated.

Grabher is prepared to fight tooth and nail to keep the plate.

“If I back down then they can do this to anybody. I guess a last name doesn’t mean anything to them,” he said.

    Well, I guess if your mind dwells in the gutter or you are a bleeding heart liberal, his plate might be offensive. But, anybody with an ounce of common sense wouldn’t see it that way. This damned ‘political correctness’ has gone way too far overboard. It’s time to tell these liberals to stuff it “where the sun don’t shine and get a life”!!! Snowflakes and cupcakes to be included here. Now would be the perfect time for Russia and/or China to invade North America as the liberals, snowflakes and cupcakes would run like a scared rabbit to their safe rooms, mommies basement or their favorite “hall of higher learning”,(AKA as a college or university) to cry on the professors shoulder(s). My wife put in a request for a vanity plate that read SAQFK, which stood for Southern Arizona Quilts For Kids. She and several other ladies make quilts for children in hospitals. It was refused because “it might be interpreted as racist” said DMV. HUH??? Even after detailed explanation of it’s meaning, it was refused. Common sense went out the window along with nickle beer and high button shoes never to return again.

    “…no way to denote that it is a family name on the plate…”. I suppose looking at the name on the title and registration is not enough evidence for the Canucks.
