ACLU defends article linking Taylor Swift to white supremacists
Fox News ^ | 11-07-17 | unknown

Posted on 11/08/2017 1:36:47 PM PST by Houmatt

The ACLU and Taylor Swift are squaring off after the singer tried to get an article detailing how white supremacy movements have embraced her lyrics and music videos, and how her silence has exacerbated the matter, pulled from a website.

On Monday, the ACLU sent a letter to Swift's legal team arguing that an article posted by PopFront that links the star to the white supremacy movement should not be taken down -- as Swift has requested -- because the writer has the right to free speech.

When you write something you know to be untrue with malicious intent, it's libel. The ACLU knows this and for them to defend it is reprehensible. Especially when they know good and well it would never stand in court.

The Left is about ripping apart anything to do with tradition and America as founded. This is just another step on the trail.

Everybody knows all white people are white supremacists.

This article is redundant.

"Everybody knows all white people are white supremacists."

That might have a grain of truth, because many people tend to think that their race/culture is better than others. But it also holds true of blacks, Asians, Native Americans, and Hispanics. But Judeo/Christian culture has a strong element that all humanity goes back to a common parentage, whereas many other cultures do NOT have that belief.

I’m seeing freedom of speech when it’s your speech. No freedom of speech when it’s someone else and you don’t like it.

To put it simply, it’s because stays the hell out of politics. The woman who wrote that trash seems to think she can drag Taylor in by telling lies about her.

Taylor Swift? A White Supremacist?

PUH-LEEZE!

What started as (honestly funny) internet memes is turning into out and out libel.

I agree Steve. I have a funny feeling that white people are the LEAST racist on the planet.

Last time I checked it was the ACLU that stood up for and Defended the NAZI’s and the White Supremacists right to Free Speech??

In 1978, the ACLU took a controversial stand for free speech by defending a neo-Nazi group that wanted to march through the Chicago suburb of Skokie ,

https://www.aclu.org/other/aclu-history-taking-stand-free-speech-skokie

Are you a White Supremacist?
Are you a Proud NAZI?
Are you a Black Separatist?
Do you have Hate for All people not like you?

Call the ACLU, we have been defending deviates, nazi’s, perverts, child molesters since our fellow Communist Roger Baldwin founded this organization
Sig Heil

And yet if you ask muslims to denounce islaminazis they’ll say no they don’t have to and it is offensive to ask them.

They should because they CLAIM the Islaminazis aren’t real muslims and defame Islam. But they don’t.

Why would ‘they’ try to tear her down?

Jealousy probably and it is nothing new.

The ACLU defended female genital mutilation. This is small time for them.

“What is her crime against the left?”

She isn’t fat or trying to tell people what to think.

Swift, who I do not care for, is a tall white pretty blond and is the most successful female in music. Okay maybe Adele gives her run for the #1 spot. Point is, that many black artists have went after Swift, because how dare a pretty blond white chick get so many album sales and award!! Another chapter of the entitlement class.

It all started with the Whoredashian's husband years ago trashing Swift for winning an award over the "Queen" Beyonce, and then another black female hip hop/rap artist Nicki Minaj went after Swift too for getting nominated for Video Of The Year at MTV with this statement: "If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊".

So I guess the new angle is she's a white supremacist? Pffft Swift is probably a liberal nut like the rest of the glitterati.

Perfect examples of the double standard based on skin color.
