They should have allowed it to happen, assigning them a stretch of highway named for someone like Dr. King. I think that would have gotten more of a point across than refusing to grant the application.

Of course, it had NOTHING to do with their advocating domestic terrorism on their website.

On its website, the International Keystone Knights of the KKK says it is "fed up with the Federal tyranny and oppression of Reconstruction, and the time was ripe for Clandestine Armed Resistance."

Easy answer. Convict them of sedition and put them on a chain gang cleaning the Martin Luther King Jr. Expressway. Everybody wins!!!

I think one state did do this.

I remember that as well, but forget which state.

Missouri perhaps if I remember reading correctly. Either way, it's hilarious like the fact that the old American Nazi Party HQ is now a mom and pop coffee shop owned by a gay couple.

Missouri renamed the stretch the Klan wanted to "adopt" as "Rosa Parks Highway", & the Klan promptly neglected to do any work on it, thereby triggering the state immediately taking their sign down (a letter battle ensued, which the bigots naturally lost). This was how they reacted to their proper consequences:

Yes. They also named another stretch "Dr. Abraham Joshua Heschel Highway" that was adopted by a neo-Nazi group. Heschel was also a Rabbi. He's remembered for his great wisdom and courageous activism. He marched with Dr. King, John Lewis, Rev Ralph Abernathy and others at Selma.
