Railroad signs stolen for resembling the Confederate flag

A dangerous new fad called the "Railroad Sign Challenge," where individuals steal a railroad crossing sign and post 'selfies' with it on the Internet, has been gaining momentum recently.

A growing number of people have claimed that the warning signs alerting drivers of a railroad crossing ahead "bare too much resemblance to the Confederate flag" due to the large 'X' in the design. The general purpose of this movement is to persuade Departments Of Transportation in various states to come up with a less offensive warning sign.

According to police officials, all the recently solved cases of sign theft involved individuals sympathetic to the movement to "ban the Confederate flag as a symbol of racism and oppression."

This prompted an advisory to Police Departments nationwide to pay special attention to vehicles with left-wing political bumper stickers in areas that have missing railroad crossing signs - a decision that led to public outcry in some traditionally progressive communities.

Detective Ray Jones of the Virginia State Police spoke to reporters about ongoing investigations, noting that the incidents are not isolated to any particular area. "We've had reports from all over the country this week," he said. "We've been solving these cases quickly with the help from concerned citizens who send us links to the suspects' Facebook pages where they post pictures of themselves with the stolen signs. When the perpetrators do that, they usually tag three or four people whom they challenge to do the same. Now we have three or four more perpetrators stealing signs, uploading their pictures, and challenging others. This causes the bizarre crime cycle to grow exponentially," said Detective Jones.

Individuals who were caught with stolen signs have claimed that they did it because they were sick and tired of seeing all these offensive symbols of slavery on their daily commute.

In one such case, Brad Anderson, 48, of Portland, Oregon, was charged with Larceny of Public Property and Reckless Endangerment in the First Degree, when 24-year-old Casey Vanderbilt rolled her vehicle after failing to slow down before hitting a railroad track traveling at approximately 60 mph on June 22nd around 1 am.

The accident was caused by Anderson who stole the sign that would have warned her about the hazard ahead. Vanderbilt was hospitalized with two broken legs; her left arm and four ribs were also broken. She is expected to make a full recovery by next year.

Anderson, being a self described 'unapologetic activist' and a 'racial Robin Hood' stated that he believes "It is a small price to pay to change our society for the better. Hundreds of people from the northern states lost their lives fighting slavery. I don't see how it's any different today. True change has to come at a price, it's not just gonna happen. It is unfortunate that a young woman was injured in the process, but police reports show she was going 60 in a 55 mph zone. She was the reckless one, not me."

Police have been urging the public to stop stealing railroad signs because it needlessly endangers people traveling in cars, semi-trucks, school buses, and other moving vehicles that are legally obligated to stop at all railroad crossings. But despite pleas to progressive activists asking them not to steal public property, railroad signs continue to vanish across the nation at a steadily increasing rate.

Any sign of flag or decal that depicts any sort of line crossing another line needs to be banned immediately. Especially anything that crosses something else at any sort of near 90 degree angle.

We can't have the masses thinking geometry out side of the state schools, it takes job away from our government indoctrination workers.

Some may be worried that this may impact our our own glorious symbols, have no fear Comrades. There shall be an exemption for the Glorious Hammer and Sickle on our wonderful banner of Red Forced Equality!

Thank you Chedoh, for bringing this matter to the attention of the collective. It is high time we ban the "R's and Bars" for its obvious racial overtones. HEIL HILLARY!

Speaking aa a Comrade living in southwest Virginia, I saw more racist flags out today than ever! How about something useful, like a learning to read or not date your sister challenge for here?
I'm not sure there is any salvation for these proud racists...but I realized today as I was, uh..studying a crossing sign that if you turn it on its side slightly....It looks like *whispers* a cross!

Indeed, might it be safer to eliminate the symbol "X" entirely? As in mathematics, where we have replaced "x" as the symbol for multiplication with the symbol * , why not take the safe route and similarly replace the hated and racist X everywhere it is found with a glorious * , symbol of hope and socialist justice throughout the world? Wouldn't you feel more comfortable being subjected to a *-Ray instead of an X-Ray at the doctor's office, or listening to to *ylophone music while reading the Autobiography of Malcolm * ?

Would we need a government agency to retroactively change all treasure maps to indicate where/how "the spot" is marked? I see the potential for promotion to at least GS-13...

I am reminded of a poem from my youth:

Mary had a little plane
And through the air she'd frisk.
Now wasn't she a silly fool
Her little * ?

Comrades and Comradettes!

I bring glorious news from Glorious propaganda ministry branch office in Yaksmackibizhan, their gulag labor force has finished state "corrections" on the subversive american series "The Dukes of Hazard" We have Retitled it the "The Commisars of Hazard".

The Hardest part was correcting the "General Lee", Due to the Proximity of the forced labor censors in Yaksmackibizhan to our glorious allies (for the time being) in the Glorious Peope's Republic of China we have renamed it the "General Tso"!
