Klan Highway: KKK Seeks to Adopt Georgia Road

by at . Comments

Members of the Ku Klux Klan are looking to take part in the Adopt-a-Highway program for a mile-long stretch of road in Georgia, according to reports.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Georgia Department of Transportation is currently reviewing the request made May 21 by the Klan.

The application was filed by International Keystone Knights of the KKK in Union County to clean up Route 515 in the Appalachian Mountains in Blairsville.

"Any civic-minded organization, business, individual, family, city, county, state, or federal agency is welcome to volunteer in the Georgia Adopt-A-Highway program," at least according to the department's website.

The state attorney general's office is expected to decide shortly.

"We just want to clean up the doggone road," Harley Hanson, who filed the application, told the paper. "We're not going to be out there in robes."

But Rep. Tyrone Brooks, head of the Georgia Association of Black Elected Officials, called on Georgia state officials to reject the application.

"This is about membership building and re-branding in a public way," he said.

"What's next, neo-Nazis or the Taliban or al-Qaida adopting highways?"

"We are good, decent Christian Americans," Hanson, the group's "exalted cyclops," added. "What we're trying to do is to work with the local community."

It's not the first time the KKK has participated in an "Adopt-a-Highway" program.

In 2000, the KKK successfully adopted part of I-55 south of St. Louis after a federal judge ruled that the Missouri DOT could not bar them from doing so.

The Georgia KKK group said it will file a lawsuit if the state rejects its application.

@ Lightning- Yeah- Holder staying on the Green side of the Prison Walls has a lot to do with " Obamie" being elected for a 2nd term. Bottom line- When all is said & done- somebody will do time behind that F & F- for sure. For that to be an internal investigation is a typical Obama joke. With Obama surrounding himself with Black Panthers and civil rights leaders with a score to settle - no wonder the KKK has risen its head. The economy is so bad down my way- I saw a family of 4 on the side of a freeway the other day eating grass. I did what any companionate human would do- I loaded them up and fead them. It was a win/win for us all. They are no longer hungry and the grass at my house is no longer a foot high.

Yea i just bet they want to clean up the doggone road, they'll be needing larger trash bags for what they want to do, of course they won't be out there in robes, during the day that is, once they adopt the highway i can just picture them invoking all kinds of alledged rights., i love the choices they gave either allow us to do this or we're taking this to court! This just got interesting.

It's nice to see some Americans taking the hint from the 'Bama Admin. about being green 'n keepin' our nation clean! Just wonder if they'll get invited to the White House to receive an award of sorts for their efforts?!? Actually, as noble a project as this is? I think come Nov. I'd like to see 'em put their energy into standing around the polling areas all menacing like the Black Panthers did to kinda make sure that the right voters get intimidated on election day. I'm sure Eric Holder will be certain to drop any charges against the KKK as he did against the Black Panthers back in '08. Right?!?
