"Quotes" are from the ACLU site:
".... and freedom of religion supported by the strict separation of church and state."
REPLY: There is no mention of "separation of church and state" mentioned in the Constitution. The ACLU seems to forget the other part of the 1st
Amendment as it pertains to religion: ".... Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, "or prohibiting the free exercise
thereof;" which would include schools, government buildings, etc.
".... Your right to privacy - freedom from unwarranted government intrusion into your personal and private affairs.
REPLY: The article reads ".... The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects." There is no "right to
".... We work also to extend rights to segments of our population that have traditionally been denied their rights, including Native Americans and
other people of color; lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgendered people; women; mental-health patients; prisoners; people with disabilities; and
REPLY:The ACLU sues people and companies as THEY BELIEVE rights are violated as they pertain to the above. Unfortunately, there are no such things as
"gay" rights (homo or faggot.... not gay. Gay means happy and carefree).
'Nor are there "Native American, people of color; lesbian, bisexual, transgendered people; women; mental-health patient; prisoner; people with
disabilities; and poor" rights. The only "rights" we have are outlined in the Bill of Rights.
".... The ACLU was founded by Roger Baldwin...."
REPLY: I wonder why the ACLU doesn't mention he was a Communist, or about the other founders?
Crystal Eastman "....was a radical feminist, pacifist and socialist..... and who represented "impulsive radicalism and casual sex."
Roger Baldwin ".... devoted himself full time to defending conscientious objectors, other citizens and immigrants against unconstitutional
persecution under new laws such as the Espionage Act of 1917 and the Sedition Act of 1918. (NOTE)... were found to be NOT un-constitutional).
Flynn, Elizabeth Gurley: political activist. Noted for her stirring oratory in the defense of the rights of labor, Flynn became active in the
Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) in 1906. In 1906. In 1920 she helped form the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). In 1937 she joined the
Communist party, later becoming its first woman leader.
I did not say tax dollars directly fund the ACLU. Tax dollars come from citizens indirectly, because as companies are forced to pay fines, and the
legal costs of the ACLU (if found "guilty"), which means those companies are prevented from using said money to buy goods or services, or hire
additional employees, which reduces taxes going to state and federal coffers.
