Here is what the ACLU has to say today:
They are instead trying a new spin to an old theme. Instead of communism being the workers’ paradise, it will be a POC paradise. Instead of dividing people into proletariat and bourgeoisie, we are dividing them into white and POC. This system is merely a way to divide us so that the nation can be torn down, with themselves in charge. They are nothing but a propaganda spewing fake news arm at this point.
Instead of calling them the American Civil Liberties Union, let’s call them what they have become: The American Communist Liberation Union. Don’t forget that the ACLU no longer supports free speech. They support only speech that agrees with the left’s positions.
Our defense of speech may have a greater or lesser harmful impact on the equality and justice work to which we are also committed,
The ACLU has stated: Moving forward, when deciding whether to take a free speech case, the organization will consider “factors such as the (present and historical) context of the proposed speech; the potential effect on marginalized communities; the extent to which the speech may assist in advancing the goals of white supremacists or others whose views are contrary to our values; and the structural and power inequalities in the community in which the speech will occur.
The ACLU is the antithesis of a civil rights organization. They have become an organization that supports suppressing and destroying anything counter to their political beliefs.
