This coming weekend the “Unite the Right” movement will be holding a rally in Washington, DC’s Lafayette Park. Members of DC Metro’s largest union have been told that a Ku Klux Klan-affiliated hate group will receive special accommodations following the rally to transport them. Outrage within the DC metro community has been building surrounding the announcement. Citizen activists claim that if the group wants “special” accommodations then they should pay for them, and that tax-paying citizens should not be required to provide any funds, whatsoever, in order to allow the Klan to ride public transportation. In fact, an unidentified union leader speaking to a local news outlet made the following statement:

“Local 689 is proud to provide transit to everyone for the many events we have in D.C. including the March of Life, the Women’s March and Black Lives Matter. We draw the line at giving special accommodation to hate groups and hate speech, especially considering that the courts granted Metro the ability to deny ads on buses and trains that are ‘issue-oriented,’ we find it hypocritical for Mr. Wiedefeld to make these unprecedented special accommodations for a hate group.”
