Alabama officials changed their decision to revoke a license plate belonging to Nathan Kirk, which pays homage to the slogan criticizing President Joe Biden — “Let’s go, Brandon.”
Previously the state had demanded in a Feb. 17 letter that Kirk surrender his license plate within 10 days, claiming the plate was an affront to the “peace and dignity of the State of Alabama.”
“The Alabama Department of Revenue, Motor Vehicle Division, has determined the above-referenced license plate contains objectionable language which is considered by the Department to be offensive to the peace and dignity of the State of Alabama,” the Feb. 17 letter read.
Kirk said he ordered the license plate in October 2021 in the “spur of the moment” as a way to express his displeasure with Biden’s leadership.
“I thought that would be just, you know, kind of a comical way of displaying that,” he said. Kirk cited Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan as one of the reasons he ordered the license plate for his family’s Ford F-250.
Kirk’s story gained national media attention. He said he had been prepared to sue the state over the matter but was happy it didn’t come to that.
