ACLU Fails Litmus Test

I try to keep an open mind, so checked to see if the ACLU is vociferously opposing the Supreme Court's destruction of poor people's property rights. It doesn't even mention it.

The issues it highlights on its home page tell you everything you need to know.

It applauds state funding of lawyers for criminals who have pled guilty.

It supports abortion, notwithstanding the consequent destruction of millions of potential Dimocrats.

It oppose the flag burning law. Only point I agree with them on. But trivial.

It complains about a student database. Another trivial issue with biometric passports on the way.

It complains about TSA profiling middle eastern men. Would that it were so!

It campaigns in support of marriage. Gay marriage.

It campaigns against the Patriot Act. When it should be worrying about VISIT.

And of course it whines about TORTURE.

Confirmed Kierkegaards.
