The problem is that groups that fight for our rights, do so regardless of whether the folks they're helping are popular. They'll wind up helping some of the people you can't stand, because the group is fighting for *everyone's* rights, not just certain people we all happen to like.
So, ACLU looks like a bunch of Commie agitators to the far Right; and a bunch of Nazis to the far Left; because ACLU helps people who are very unpopular from either extreme.
First they came for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up, because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak up for me.
