Scary stickers strike again. Previously, it was a “racist” thin blue line symbol – now it’s a monstrous motto that’s wreaking havoc.

Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the organization, called the decals that feature an American flag and the words “In God We Trust” both “inappropriate and exclusionary,” and frightening and politically dubious” in a letter to Sheriff Wayne Ivey.
Gaylor and her atheist allies are demanding that taxpayer time be used to remove the decals, though…to protect the citizens of Brevard County from principles and tradition and other horrific all-American stuff. In fact, they want that kind of sentiment stricken from all county property.

He told Fox News:
“They have a better chance of me waking up thin tomorrow morning than they do of me taking that motto off our cars. I personally believe that our country is at a tipping point, and if we, as strong patriotic Americans, don’t stand for the principals of our great nation, we are going to lose the America we all know and love!”
