There's no doubt in my mind NAMBLA is wrong, and members are most likely insane or criminals in their own right... but again, the ACLU wasn't
defending the tenants of NAMBLA, just their right to distribute free speech. I don't like it, but I understand why the ACLU takes on the worst of the
worst in it's slippery slope efforts.
I'd RATHER they defend poor people everywhere of a non high profile nature, but that's not how non profits work. Believe it or not, being bashed
nightly by Bill O'Reilly on the NAMBLA issue probably made the ACLU more press, and more money donations to keep fighting for EVERYONE's freedoms
than they've had in years.
They DO pick and choose, but it's not about making policy, it's about making press. Such is the way of life. Don't you think Limbaugh could afford
his own legal army? Why is a non-profit defending a millionaire that hates them? Press. Another question, why is a millionaire that hates the ACLU
LETTING them defend him?
Press, as well? I seriously have no idea.
