Posted on 12/14/2004 1:36:36 PM PST by AZConcervative
How can we stop the ACLU? I am serious, so please try and refrain from half-cocked comments. Everyday, it seems, I am reading about another way the ACLU is trampling on the rights of the majority in a wacked out attempt to push its leftist agenda. From getting a cross taken out of the city of Los Angeles' crest (98% of L. A. residents polled wanted to keep it), to attacking a private entity such as the Boy Scouts, to turning the word Christmas into a vulagarity. I have seen and heard enough out of these people.
My idea is this. I want to start a grass roots effort to combat the ACLU. The problem is I wouldn't even know where to start. So I am appealing to you Freepers. I have faith that there are enough rational, intelligent people on here to come up with some truly viable ideas. I am all for having fun, but please try to keep the stupid comments to a minimum. I know that may be asking a lot of some of you, but please try and refrain.
Let's put our clout to use.
How about we get them to fight anti-gun laws.
After all gun ownership is a "Civil Liberty".
I'd start by volunteering for/donating to the American Center for Law and Justice... http://www.aclj.org
Rallying cry: ACLU = The Enemy Within.
By appointing competent judges. If not for the judiciary, the ACLU would just have another website. They can't persuade anyone. So they impose their will, on the courts, through the courts, by means of incompentent or like-minded judges. It's the judiciary that's the problem. Fix the courts!
How do you defeat them? Have a massive number of freepers join the ACLU and destroy it from within.
Support authentic civil rights groups like the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) based in Washington, D.C.
Counter sue in as many courts as possible under hate crime and discrimination laws. Then challenge the ACLU for proof under the Constitution of separation of Church and state. Then demand that the government recind the provision of re-embursing ACLU lawyers with taxpayers money!
Find District Attorneys who will invoke the RICO Act in a suit against them. They are extorting money all over the place, this enables them to go on to further evil. And much of this is taxpayer money....OUR money.
DISTRICT ATTORNEY CANDIDATES--THIS IS A GREAT CAMPAIGN ISSUE!
End the federal 'civil rights legislation' subsidy.
Newt Gingrich was on Fox's O'Rielly several nights ago and stated that the Activist judges could be delt with very easily by Congress. The office could just be done away with by Congress and the funding stopped. This could be done because of the misinterpretation of the Laws by these Judges. The Problem is getting the Congress to do anyhting about it.
The Dimms and the Republicans JUST WILL NOT HEAR the AMERICAN People, we have no place else to go for representation in Congress: Let's see, elections 2006,
America First Party,
Independant American Party
The American Party
AN all out campaign by the people via Phone,Mail and E-mail may be possible to bring pressure to get these judges removed.
I suggest you read the ACLU position statement on the Second Amendment. That Leftist organization unilaterally decided that "the People" in the Second Amendment means "the National Guard."
They sent the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors a letter concerning the cross on the seal, to which they knuckled under. If a letter is all it takes, I'd say we've had it.
Here is a start..

I currently donate to the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), and the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC). I would encourge everyone to support one or more of these fine organizations as they are working to oppose the ACLU. Sign up for their newsletters so you can keep up with the work they are doing.
I agree with you. The ACLU is a destructive organization!!! Left unchecked they will destroy America and all of us with it. Hopefully, we will get some conservative Supreme Court Judges in the next couple of years that will follow the Constitution and put the ACLU in their place. (The trash dumpster.) Hopefully, they will reverse some of the ACLU wins. I have NO faith in our politicians doing anything to stop them. I think it would be wise if we start a grass roots organization that goes after them. As far as I'm concerned, they rank right up there with the U.N. and the Democrat Party. All anti-American and evil.
Thanks for pointing that out. I had never read that before.
What a bunch of opportunistic hypocrites.
Not one member of the ACLU executive board has ever been a member of the US military, the boy or girls scouts, or a practicing Chrisitan.
The only way to fight it in this PC world we live in is to form an Anti-Defamation league like the Jews.
Get Christian people together, particiularly lawyers willing to go pro bono and the wealthy folks also anger over this distructive entity....and imitate them....Sue them as individuals...attack their free tax status, intimidate their leadership as individuals....do just what they do!
Mostly because every government entity in Los Angeles is as Leftist as they come. They practically squealed with glee at having the ACLU cast its evil eye upon them.
Revealing FACTS on the ACLU
from its own writings
by Diane Dew
Ever notice how the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) seems to take on only cases that are anti-Christian - pro-sodomy, pro-abortion, anti-family, pro-pornography, pro-prostitution, pro-euthanasia, pro-homosexual, pro-infanticide, pro-crime, pro-humanism, anti-God -- and, except for atheism, anti-religion?
It calls itself the American Civil Liberties Union, but the ACLU is not American; it is uncivil (to the unborn, which are shredded mercilessly to pieces without anesthetic); and it knows nothing of true liberty, which can only be found in Jesus Christ, when one is set free from the bondage of all the SIN this evil organization PROMOTES!
The ACLU's founder, Roger Baldwin, stated: "We are for SOCIALISM, disarmament, and ultimately for abolishing the state itself... We seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and the SOLE CONTROL of those who produce wealth. COMMUNISM is the goal." (Source: Trial and Error, by Geo. Grant)
The ACLU is destructive to the fabric of our society. Christians must recognize Satan as the source - the instigator - when the end results of an organization's efforts are only "to kill, to steal, and to destroy." All we need to is examine the (rotten) fruit.
Following are some of the stated goals of the ACLU, from its own published Policy Issues:
the legalization of prostitution (Policy 211);
the defense of all pornography, including CHILD PORN, as "free speech" (Policy 4);
the decriminalization and legalization of all drugs (Policy 210);
the promotion of homosexuality (Policy 264);
the opposition of rating of music and movies (Policy 18);
opposition against parental consent of minors seeking abortion (Policy 262);
opposition of informed consent preceding abortion procedures (Policy 263);
opposition of spousal consent preceding abortion (Policy 262);
opposition of parental choice in children's education (Policy 80)
-- not to mention the defense and promotion of euthanasia, polygamy, government control of church institutions, gun control, tax-funded abortion, birth limitation, etc. (Policies 263, 133, 402, 47, 261, 323, 271, 91, 85).
Following is a case in point (from David Barton's "America: To Pray or Not to Pray").
In 1988, California was considering adopting legislation on sex education for public schools requiring that course material and
instruction should stress that monogamous heterosexual intercourse within marriage is a traditional American value.
The Senator promoting the bill received a letter of protest from the ACLU dated April 18, 1988 stating:
"It is our position that monogamous, heterosexual intercourse within marriage
as a traditional American value is an unconstitutional establishment of religious
doctrine in public schools.... We believe [this bill] violates the First Amendment."
Truth is, liberals are unwilling to simply let others be, but rather seek to impose their UNgodliness upon Christians. It is a mission to
them and other atheists to pervert the freedoms of others. The ACLU does not run to the defense of those who are harmed; it aggressively
seeks out opportunities to corrupt pure freedoms.
How does the ACLU pay for its activities?
George Grant, author of "Trial and Error," puts the ACLU's annual budget (1993) at $14 MILLION (FOURTEEN MILLION DOLLARS) - much of which is "SUPPLIED BY THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER through the Federal program mandated by the Civil Rights Attorneys' Fee Awards Act of 1976. If the ACLU wins a case that involves a public institution, for instance, the organization collects the full legal fees of its attorneys even though those attorneys offered their services pro bono (without charge).
1993 membership in the ACLU was 250,000 members, with 70 staff lawyers, and 5,000 volunteer attorneys, handling an average of 6,000 cases at any one time.
You can read about the ACLU at the ACLU's official web site: http://aclu.org/
Hey! Not a bad idea. I'm not sure that I could be that deceptive though. I feel sure that this approach has been used to destroy organizations before.
Rise to the upper ranks of the organization by stealth and sack the bastards.
We need to fully support this reform. Your tax dollars support the ACLU whether you agree with them or not!
I am almost certain that he said the Judges could be removed!
A whole gaggle of thong snapping Monica Lewinsky's. Let their soon to be ex-wives bankrupt them.
I'm thinking that the thong snapping may hold true for the male ACLU scum as well as the female (all lesbians?).
As if one of the rights contained in the Bill of Rights was a right to protect the government from the people. The idea is laughable. The ACLU has an agenda, and it's not what they pretend it is.
Give Bill O'Reily a little credit here, he has said more against the extremism of the aclu then any other TV personality I have seen.
I donate to the Thomas More Law Center. We're a military family, so we're not rolling in the dough or anything, but if we've got it then they've got it. :o)
Thomas More Law Center Bump!
The Thomas More Center is a great organization. I had the opportunity of speaking with one of its reps a few years ago, and a sharper, more enthusiastic, upbeat guy I've never met. Absolutely brilliant man. Wish I could remember his name.
Find ways to stop or slow the incoming funding from the big foundations and others. Write and publish lists of things they have done to ruin the Republic and subvert the laws of morality and Christianity. Freep their court dates. Make sure everyone knows their Commie background. Etc.

American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) - http://www.aclj.org

Stop the ACLU Coalition - http://www.stoptheaclu.org
Here are a few examples of how two of those organizations are fighting back:
