ACLU MAKING AMERICA LESS SAFE

Crossposted from STOP THE ACLU

The banner linked here 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.
