The Nazis are taking over Colorado, one mile-long stretch of highway at a time.
OK, not really. At least not yet. But theyâ€™re apparently striving for a cleaner Colorado.
The Denver-based CBS 4 broke the story Monday night that the cityâ€™s branch of The National Socialist Movement, also known as Americaâ€™s Nazi Party, has adopted a stretch of Colorado Highway 85 in Brighton, just north of E-470.
Signs read: â€œAdopt-A-Highway next mile. National Socialist Movement Denver Unit.â€
And people are pissed. At least the people who know that National Socialists arenâ€™t those damned commies and are in fact Nazis.
The group, whose leader Neal Land said heâ€™s â€œnot much for the Jewish religion,â€ hopes to gain membership because of the sign.
Clearly, this is wrong because people shouldnâ€™t be allowed to join hateful groups like that … wait. Darn Freedom of Assembly.
Well, how about this: These hate mongers have no right to speak their minds in public … shoot. Freedom of Speech.
Look, weâ€™re not advocating for the philosophy these neo-Nazis preach. In fact, if these idiots fell off the face of the planet, weâ€™d all be better off.
But the reality is that they have a legitimate right to speak their mind, just like any other advocacy group, no matter how dumb they sound.
The First Amendment is still the First Amendment no matter whoâ€™s enacting it.
And to boot, theyâ€™re cleaning up Coloradoâ€™s roads. So theyâ€™re not completely useless human beings.
