ACLU May Help KKK Get Highway Named After Them
KKK Seeks to Adopt-a-Highway in Georgia
Surgeon Allegedly Put KKK Scar on Native American’s Stomach
Ku Klux Klan ask civil rights group to help them out.
The KKK aren’t going away. They want their highway and they want it now.
To show they aren’t playing around, they have reached out to the American Civil Liberties Union to help them get it.
The ACLU is actually considering it.
“We are considering next steps and whether or not we will support the group,” said Debbie Seagraves, executive director for the ACLU of Georgia. “We know this is unpopular. It’s clear and understandable that the message of the KKK is offensive and hurtful to many people, but when you cede the power to the state to decide whose speech is objectionable, we give it up.”
She insists that the ACLU does not agree or condone the KKK’s agendas or messages, but that this case is solely based on if whether or not their right to free speech was violated when their attempt to adopt a highway was denied.
