What do you guys think? Should they be allowed? Yes they are racists but is that a reason to deny them? I don't like them but wouldn't deny them a mile. Maybe give them camo safety vests. wink I am sure they wouldn't be the only racist group in the program nationwide but probably the most infamous.

Jim, there is absolutely no question in my very liberal mind, they have the right to participate.

"Brought to you by the KKK" on a publicly funded sign would be hate speech in my opinion.

The state declined their request due to the Klans history of inciting racial hatred and violence. Plus, it would probably attract a lot of politically motivated litter bugs. I think it was the right decision and it is in keeping with similar decisions in other states.
