Let me guess, the Georgia DOT is going to ignore the fact that both Missouri and Arkansas have already been dragged through court over this very issue, lost, spent a ton of money on legal fees, and had to let the KKK pick up trash. They'll dig their heels in, keep telling them no, get sued, spend lots of money on lawyers, lose, and the KKK will pick up trash in Georgia.

I think they should let the KKK adopt a highway.

But that highway should have a new blacktop put down first.
 
2012-06-11 01:02:28 PM  
Good idea! They can do double duty--picking up trash, and acting as "rumble strips" to alert you that you're driving on the shoulder. The soft, squishy noise made by running over their doughy bodies would be a lot less harsh than the WUMPPITTA-BUMPPTTA-WUMPITTA-BUMPITTA noise of the traditional rumble strips.

If you want to see the inevitable future of the GOP, look no further than the KKK. Old, white bigots who represent an ugly stain on America's history, railing against their own irrelevancy.
 
2012-06-11 01:08:38 PM  
Let them clean it up but make sure they mark the stretch of highway well. So that people can through out stereo-typical race rubish... KFC boxes and chicken bones, strawberry soda bottles, Argo starch boxes, etc.
 
2012-06-11 01:12:58 PM  
I'm OK with this, but only as long as the state also solicits litter-removal sponsorships from the American Communist Party, Georgia Association of Abortionists, Socialist Workers Society, Pedophiles Anonymous, Southern Council of Puppy-KIckers, and Methodists.

You know, just to demonstrate inclusiveness.

This actually reminds me of something...

Am I the only one who has noticed that quite a lot of the KKK and Nazi Party members are really fat or otherwise badly out of shape?


If they're going to try to say that white people are better / the master race, shouldn't they set something of a better example in that regard? A low carb diet, perhaps some work on the eliptical machine?

If the Fark gods had used my farking submission you would have been treated to not only a much better headline, but also to a more thoroughly researched and well written article that would answer all of your questions. But noooo...

Hell I can't even post the link to the better article in here.... just go to ajc dot com. It's on the front page of the Atlanta Journal Constitution site.

And to answer your question...they are wanting to just to do away with the entire program rather than fight it. No more Adopt-A-Highway in Georgia.

I would invest in a lot of "Roadside Cleanup" signs. If I recall correctly, the KKK one in Missouri got pulled down a bunch of times.

Waiting for the Westview Baptist thugs to jump on this. Request a cleanup site, sue the state. Sign gets torn down, sue the cops. Find trash with someone's name on it. Sue them for littering.

(Maybe this only happened in my world) And of course the KKK didn't keep the road clear of trash so the state wound up taking down the sign anyways.

Except in the case of Texas, the state won the right to keep the KKK out of the program. While the Western District of Arkansas concluded that the signs represented a traditional public forum, and the Eastern District of Missouri concluded that it was a limited public forum, on appeal from the Eastern District of Texas the Fifth Circuit Court decided that Adopt-A-Highway was a nonpublic forum. In every case the courts were basically citing the same Supreme Court decisions and coming to different conclusions. SCOTUS for its part has been unwilling to take up any case over this issue, so it really isn't settled law at this point.
 
2012-06-11 01:24:08 PM  
I don't see the problem, the KKK is not nearly as organized and dangerous as they used to be.

Also, things change over the years. For example, the democrats used to be the party of slavery.

Yes, Missouri did fight the KKK on this issue and they did lose...in the courts. However after the courts decided the KKK could not be excluded from the program the state dedicated the stretch of road they wanted to clean "The Rosa Parks Expressway" The KKK never once cleaned the road and were eventually dropped from the program.

This could turn out to be a good thing. First, the KKK adopts a mile. Then, the Black Panther Party adopts two in an attempt to one-up the KKK, which then adopts three, etc. Lather, rinse, repeat until the entire state is clean!

Eh, if they want to do it, I don't have a problem with it.
It's a free country. They're free to be hateful bigots if they want to be.

It's not like the KKK has the influence they did 40-50 years ago. As long as all they do is write and speak their hatred, I disagree with them, but I don't have a problem with it.

It's when they lynch, threaten, and assault people that I have an issue with them.

NAACP have any highways under their care? I think the lawmakers are stuck here. Deny these freaks, and they have a discrimination case. Supreme Court already heard this and sided with the KKK. That is the price of free speech.
 
2012-06-11 01:48:22 PM  
How many other race-based groups are cleaning up the highways? I'd like to see a side by side comparrison of how well they are doing.
 
2012-06-11 01:50:04 PM  
Did the KKK get the memo that the roadway in question is a blacktop highway?
 
2012-06-11 01:50:43 PM  
Here's an idea, KKK: just pick a mile stretch of road and pick up the trash every few weeks without telling anyone. Every race would be better off if they'd just keep their mouths shut and do whatever it is they want to do.

Yeah, seriously. It's not like it's a great recruiting tool or anything. I can't picture some young, angry person with misplaced racial anger being attracted to the KKK because they pick up trash.

Fano: Jack Chick is going to be doing highway cleanup?


Highway cleanup would make a great Chick tract. Like there could be two guys, one who throws garbage all over the roadside on his way to church, and his buddy who spends all his time picking up trash and involving himself in bullshiat environmental causes so he doesn't have any time to spend loving Jesus, despite his trash-flinging buddy's constant entreaties to give himself over to god, and then one night as the trash-flinger is driving home, the Devil jumps out from behind some bushes and scares him, and he drives off the road and runs over his buddy before dying himself, after he crashes into a tree. And then we'd get the inevitable post-script where the Giant Faceless God finds the trash-flinger's name in the Book-o-Life and gets carted away by an angel to a land of blissful rewards, whereas the neat-freak gets a "Depart from me ye accursed into everlasting flames" and an admonishing finger from GFG. And we'd all learn a valuable lesson, which is that Jack Chick is smoking a serious amount of crack.
 
2012-06-11 02:11:09 PM  
Have any of the highways adopted by the KKK ever been cleaned?

I remember hearing the stories of them fighting to get their name on the signs, but never show to clean since they're forbidden from wearing their masks or hiring outside help, but many are scared/ ashamed to reveal their identities.

master_dman: How come every other race can have pride except for white people?


Because usually "white pride" groups are not about celebrating heritage they are about violently intimidating minorities. There are, however, plenty of organized groups of "white" people who are organized for ethnic pride that may fit you if you want to join:

Irish: Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, among others (I hear they're really friendly)
Italian: Order Sons of Italy in America
French: French-American Foundation
Greek: American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association
Norwegian: Independent Order of Vikings (sorry no pirate organization but vikings are cool)
The list goes on and on, if you are proud of your heritage or want to learn more about it contact one of these organizations and know that they are all about pride and not about hate like the Klan or Hammerskins or what ever you were white-knighting.

I couldn't believe it when we saw that sign in Arkansas.We had been on the job for a week when one of our crew had a gun pulled on him (he was black). Took him off that job the next day for his own safety. Of course it didn't help matters that he was porking a big old ugly white gal at the time. What the hell is wrong with people?

No, because American society is already the Assoc for the Advancement of White People.

All of mass media is already White Entertainment Television.

Congress is and always has been The Congressional White Male Caucus (17% female and 9.6% black and some of those members count in both groups)

Sorry to rain on your little pity the poor oppressed white man parade but we have it so good we don't even know how good we have it. As a white man in America even though I grew up poor I got the good schools with the good teachers, the easy access to good neighborhoods, easy treatment by law enforcement (except when I was 20yo and looked like a tweaked out meth-head, because I was), my bosses almost always respected me except when I gave them reason not to and when people see me today they assume that I'm a college educated professional not only because of the way I dress but because I'm white. I see how my black and hispanic friends and colleagues are treated and it's not the same as I am.
