The above banner and slogan is quite deceptive
and an utter joke to those that are truly aware to the ACLU's workings. Just in the past week the ACLU has launched a massive campaign against the NSA's efforts
to trace terrorist phone calls into the U.S. This campaign with full page ads has even been denounced by media that usually defend the ACLU as completely lacking in context.
In just the last few days the ACLU has pounced at the chance to bash America, applauding the decision of an EU Court
that struck down an anti-terrorism agreement that allows the European Union and the U.S. to share information on airline passengers. And in the same day the ACLU of Florida came out against a new law
that restricts colleges and universities from using state funds for travel to countries classified as terrorist states by the U.S. government. The ACLU consistently allign themselves with groups like CAIR
, and other organizations that have known terrorist ties. They have turned down donations from some of their most generous donors because of anti-terrorism stipulations.
They can always be seen defending our enemies. It is no wonder that they fight to exempt lawyers from anti-terror supporting oaths.
A while back, my friend Kathy wrote about how deceptive this banner is
, and it still applies today.
So now the ACLU is promoting itself as a champion of both safety for our citizens and of freedom. What a joke! When 9-11 occurred what measures did the ACLU take to ensure our safety? None, zip, nada. This organization has done nothing to ensure our safety, in fact it has chosen to sue our government on behalf of terrorists outside of their legal jurisdiction while they were located in prisons on foreign soil. They have since then demanded that the government release and make public top secret security information regarding not only the activities of our military, but also that of our intelligence forces. They have also initiated one lawsuit after another against the government to stop the searching of individuals for security purposes in mass transit situations, to stop what they call profiling (we will never see a Protestant white middle-aged woman as a terrorist working with an extremist Islamic organization) by race, sex and religion, and to stop the government from detaining and questioning or interrogating individuals who have ties or contact with known terrorist individuals and organizations. They want to kill the Patriot Act because they see the rights of an individual who may or may not be an American citizen as more important than the safety of the nation at large. They want the borders open because they see that as an infringement of the rights of non-Americans to become Americans however they can manage it. They want to have military and intelligence sources, activities, and planning revealed to the public so they can "watch dog" and ensure freedoms of individuals and/or groups are not being compromised, but in doing so will enable those very individuals and/or groups under surveillance the ability to avoid surveillance and possible capture before they do something destructive to American citizens. They say they are for a safe and free America. Yet their actions speak very loudly the opposite of the lip service they give in this banner for a safe America. As to a free America, how free are American's who live under constant threat of a lawsuit by the ACLU for imagined Constitutional transgressions by a small group of jaded individuals who think their rights are more important than the communities they live in or the country they obviously find such fault with?
As for the part of the banner that says they want a free America, perhaps a better slogan would be...."If standards are good, then double standards must be even better." When it comes to freedom of speech, the ACLU trip over their own two feet. While the left hand defends the rights of anti-American protesters, the right hand acts to supress the free speech rights of pro-life protesters.
When it comes to religious free speech, the ACLU act more like a censor than a protector. The hypocrisy of the ACLU on freedom of speech has even been noticed by its own board members, but the ACLU has a solution to that....restrict their speech.
There are very few organizations that are as hypocritical, and dangerous as the ACLU. I really don't understand why so many politicians sit aside and do nothing to curb the reckless power they have accumulated. However, as many people are seeing in today's times, when the government doesn't do what it should, the people rise up and stand up for their own rights.
The ACLU and the judicial activists are destroying our heritage, security, and our soverignity. They are doing it with our tax dollars. Join us, and the American Legion
to urge Congress to put a stop to this. Support Congressman Hostettler's legislation to stop taxpayer funding of the ACLU. Sign the Petition To Stop Taxpayer Funding of the ACLU.
