A North Georgia chapter of the Ku Klux Klan has applied to “adopt” a stretch of highway in Union County, Georgia. According to CNN, the application, would allow the white supremacy group to receive state recognition for cleaning up a one-mile portion of a highway on a part of Georgia State Route 515 in the Appalachian Mountains near the North Carolina border.
“All we want to do is adopt a highway,” said April Chambers, the chapter’s secretary. “We’re not doing it for publicity. We’re doing it to keep the mountains beautiful. People throwing trash out on the side of the road … that ain’t right.”
(Hmmmm? I wonder what other things the KKK feels ain’t right?)
In Missouri, the KKK made a similar request, however the Missouri Department of Transportation eventually kicked the white supremacist out of the Adopt A Highway program because members were not picking up trash as agreed. (Their request for an Adopt A Highway sign that would say “Whiteys Only” was also turned down.)
The KKK wanting to adopt a highway is pretty ironic. Let’s look at other Adopt A Highway signs (real and not-so-real) that are ironic or JUST PLAIN WRONG!
