When it served their purpose the ACLU defended the American Socialist Party's (Nazi) right to demonstrate. In 1977 the ACLU assisted the Nazi's in getting a US Supreme Court ruling giving them the right to march through Skokie IL. At that time Skokie was home to a large number of Holocaust survivors. In all fairness, after the US Supreme Court upheld their right to march the American Socialist Party decided to stage a rally at the Federal Plaza in Chicago.

And they are exactly right. As citizens of the country, voters, and human beings, civil liberties extend even to Nazis and the KKK.

Correct. They do have rights as American citizens. We may not like what they do with those rights, but they still have them.

At least some people here still have their heads on straight.

Why are we trying to strip rights from people all of a sudden?

The worst they can do is express themselves, their hatred, and let us know what they think.

The reason Aryeh Neier, the Jewish man who defended the rights of the Nazis to march, did what he did, was to uphold the rule of law—for his own safety. He used this quote from "A man for all seasons" to illustrate his point:

NAZI's are the National Socialist Party of America not the American Socialist Party.

ACLU also assisted the NAZI's in receiving their permit for the Charlottesville protest.

Well to be fair he was the man of the year in 1939.

Nobody drew more headlines that's for damn sure.

Well, they are defending Milo, so they're well on their way....

ACLU Defends Milo’s First Amendment Rights


“Our free speech rights rise and fall together – whether left, right, pro-choice, anti-choice, vegan, carnivore, or none of the above,” the ACLU wrote.

“Here at the ACLU, we vehemently disagree with Mr. Yiannopoulos’ views. We work hard, every day, with the very communities he targets, to fight for equal rights and dignity for all,” wrote ACLU director James Esseks in a letter explaining the decision. “We recognize that his words cause grievous pain to many individuals, their families, and their loved ones. Speech like his hurts.”

“Yet even though we know how wrong-headed Mr. Yiannopoulos’ speech is, the ACLU today filed a lawsuit to defend his free speech rights,” he continued.
