The KKK and the American Nazi Party both had roads in the US “Adopt a Road” Program

The KKK adopted US21 in Missouri but props to St. Louis, who after finding out that they could not ban the KKK from participation in the Federal program instead decided to name the road “The Rosa Parks Highway.” Revenge can be classy.

Not wanting to be left out, the Nazis followed suit:

American Nazi Party Sponsors Oregon Highway
Friday, January 28, 2005

SALEM, Ore. — Two green Adopt-A-Highway signs reading “American Nazi Party” have popped up on a rural road a few miles from downtown, and it’s got people upset with the county for agreeing to put up the signs and worried about their neighborhood.
“I know we live in a free world. But that’s not part of freedom, anything to do with the Nazis,” said Barbara Hamblin, a 64-year-old who lives in a mobile home park just down the road from one of the signs.
“They had to have been off their rocker,” she said.
The two signs were erected by Marion County road crews earlier this week, costing taxpayers $250 each.
County officials said they know people are upset. But free-speech guarantees in the Constitution prevented them from turning down the person who signed the American Nazi Party up with the local Adopt-A-Highway program.
“Our hands are pretty much tied from a legal standpoint,” said Marion County Commissioner Patti Milne. “This has been very difficult, but the bottom line is they are entitled to participate.”
“We can’t pick and choose what parts of the constitution to follow,” said Milne, a former Republican state legislator.
Marion County put up the signs after a person named C. Marchand applied for a permit under which the “American Nazi Party” agreed to help clean up the road.
A person answering the phone at the number given on the permit application said “maybe” when asked if he was Marchand.
He declined to make any further comment, referring inquiries to a Jim Ramm, who has previously been identified in news reports as leader of the Tualatin Valley Skins, a white-supremacist group that has been active in the Willamette Valley.
No listing could be found for Ramm.
The Web site for the American Nazi Party lists as its chairman Rocky J. Suhayda.
Responding to an e-mail, Suhayda said his group has nothing to do with the two signs in Salem, writing, in part … “we would never pick up garbage along a highway in this toilet-bowl of a country…”
County officials said they got about a dozen complaints about the signs as of mid-Thursday afternoon, and more were coming in after their existence was broadcast on TV news.
