A small Denver neo-Nazi group performed its first cleanup along U.S. 85 in Brighton this weekend.

The National Socialist Movement Denver Unit is an official volunteer with the Colorado Department of Transportation’s Adopt-a-Highway program.

The Aryan group was granted a sign and the right to clean up the 1-mile stretch of the roadside south of Bromley Lane, the Longmont Times-Call reported Sunday.

Neal Land of Lochbuie, a group leader, told the paper the organization wanted to show, “We’re not bad people.”

Land said the group had six members. Its website indicates the group mimics Nazi symbols and the white-supremacist principles of Adolf Hitler.

The group applied for the trash-collecting designation last year and met criteria. The Times-Call reported that the state was therefore legally obliged to grant the volunteer status to the group.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil-rights organization that investigates such groups, describes the National Socialist Movement’s agenda: “Only heterosexual ‘pure-blood whites’ should be allowed citizenship. All others should be stripped of their civil and constitutional rights.”
