Is today's American Civil Liberty Union really about the same vision of America that the overwhelming number of American's want?

By the looks of the ACLU agenda, Americans don't see eye to eye on most of the issues..

The ACLU is nothing but lawyers and I doubt that most americans share thier views.

ACLU Asks Government For Proof That Detainees in U.S. Custody Are Not Being Tortured

Hard to prove a negative.

It's a very good question. Why should communists and race-baiters be the arbiters of morality in America. And how did the laudable notion of minority rights and representation come to mean dictatorship of the minority?

Ya'll are just noticing the ACLU corruption? We the PEOPLE" need to throw these bastar#s out on their ears! They are not elected to speak for us - but for socialist liberals and terrorist lovers.

Do not donate money to any entity that supports the ACLU in any way. Stop them Now!

Abortionists Communists Leftists and Undesirables.
The American Criminal Lovers Union.
Anarchists Creeps Liberals and the Unwashed.

Whatever you want to call them, they're not Civil, they hate Liberty, they're anti-American, and the only sort of Union they support is the kind that takes place in a gay bath house.

The ACLU has obviously become one sided politically

I think the taxpayers need to stop funding this group that obviously is not protecting rights of Americans

The government does not have to prove that prisoners are not being mistreated. The ACLU has to prove that they are.

What is the ACLU talking about?

The "detainees" at Gitmo (sorry, doubt I can spell the whole thing) are unlawful combatants. They are not subject to the laws normally governing land warfare since they do not wear uniforms, and (or?) carry weapons openly. As unlawful combatants, they are in the same status (IMHO) as 19th century pirates, and (I believe) the US is within its international legal rights to shoot them out of hand.

By the way, isn't it odd that the ACLU has never (as far as I know) complained about terrorism? Does anyone know of a case when they did?

ACLU="American Civil Liberties Union"

Why, then, when I visited their site, were they screaming at Bush to help with anti-racism in South Africa? What the h*ll does South Africa have to do with the Civil Liberties of Americans?

The ACLU could make a wonderful contribution to the preservation of liberty if they a) released their heads from their sphincters, b) openly admitted that they were flaming liberals so as not to deceive the public, and c) gave as much attention to all persecuted groups--Christians included--as they do to minorities.

In my opinion, the ACLU is decidedly unAmerican.

Who are they? They are the defenders of NAMBLA. They are the destroyers of Freedom of Religion as outlined in the 1st Amendment. They are legal positivists/moral relativist BAD LAWYERS. They are evil personified. They are the American Communist-Lunatics United. They are the ENEMY of every freedom-loving American. All they do is constantly look for judges who will rule for their whacko agenda. They should all be arrested for trying to destroy the good morals of society, and shipped off to North Korea where they can rub elbows with people of like mind.

I think we should start our OWN "Civil Liberties" group. (I would never call it a union.) Show 'em what conservative lawyers can do for our civil liberties with a genuine constitutional law foundation. Beat the ACLU at its own game and actually do some good. NOT another Judicial Watch thingy. We'd have to be...well...fair and balanced. :o)

Call the new one The Constitutional Civil Liberties Organization or something. The CCLO...hmmm...anyone like that?

ACLU, who are these people, and why are they dictating our laws?

I know this wasn't the question, but it's because this organization was founded by a true communist, and it's goal is to destroy the U.S.A. from within.

They're doing a d@mn good job of it too!
