The American Civil Liberties Union
announced recently that it would defend the free speech rights of the Ku Klux Klan. Specifically, the
ACLU will defend the right of the KKK to
"adopt" a section of public highway (i.e. agree to have its volunteers
clean up trash on the road) in return for public signage giving the KKK
credit for a public service, in a state program that encourages civic
groups to adopt highways this way.

    I despise the KKK and all it stands for, but it has the same rights as any other group that might apply to the Adopt-A-Highway program. It's called living in a free society.

    I see no legal problem with the Klan adopting highways. If they promise to clean the highways, then why deny them their right?

    Let the KKK fix roads. It's all they're good for.

    Hard Question. I personally am glad the KKK did not get the opportunity to post their name on a federally (or state) funded sign. That organization was, and still is, based on racially motivated hatred. I do understand why the ACLU took the case, because that is what they do. It is a tough call though.

    Freedom of speech is applicable for everyone, not just those in good social groups. Even haters have the right to clean up their area. They'll win that case, and there is precedent of this case in another state (I forget which).

    EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO FREE SPEACH!!!! People need to understand that freedom requires us to tolerate and respect the rights of those we disagree with, no matter how crazy or moronic they may be. Few understand this unfortunatly

    It's fun to watch two democrat organizations fight each other.

    The KKK was never Democrat, they had southern democrats in the ranks, granted, but that isn't much better than saying the Tea Party has moderate Republicans in their ranks. The feel and the slant of the KKK is squarely on the far right.

    The KKK has been scum of an organization since nearly its inception, but it has the right to free speech just as every other group in America; we can not deny that right no matter how much we dislike the group of the speech.
