The ACLU has lost its way, and its Charter

One example of the ACLU losing its way and becoming a beacon of totalitarianism. With recent acts, this organization has no further value for freedom. Essentially, it should be treated as just another sponsor of totalitarianism.

    Okay here's the thing. We all need to claim our true heritages. For instance if you are one-quarter any minority the Govt let's you claim it, except white. Now most of us are not 100% 'white'. Think about it. All the way back from my mother her family was Ashkenasi Jew. Hitler would have wiped them out but they were too smart to be where he was doing his deed. My father was a half breed American Indian. My grandmother wasn't made a citizen of this Country until 1914, the year he was born! She was born at Paint Rock, Texas (Comanche Territory). So when you are asked your Nationality you should say ''American". There is no such thing as a 'white person'. My father's skin was Mahoghany colored (very red skin). I am an Alien. Check it out...Red Hair, Green Eyes and Type A Negative blood. Check the percentages of someone like that. Less than 3% on the blood type, and about 15%on the red hair, green eyes and combine it all = Alien! I'll bet we could upset the Apple Cart!

      Also have American Indian ancestors, but not that recent. That is cool. Also have unusual blood type (B-, 1%), and blue eyes. Boring brown hair though, except a majority of it isn't on my head anymore ;)

    In my view ACLU has been mostly anti-liberty since I was growing up 50+ years ago. Certainly guns were never on the list of rights they cared about. Nor freedom of association if race was an issue.

    After 27 years in a State Prison system I have nothing but contempt for the ACLU. The dangerous ideals they support go directly against the safety and security of the good men and women working in these very dangerous prisons.

    College tuition has skyrocketed due to the ease of obtaining Federal Student loans. Why not charge a fortune when you know the student can get the money from Uncle Sam. Forgiving the loans would accelerate tuition well past anything ANY race can afford.

    It was founded by communists.

    "The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a nearly 100-year-old left-leaning activism organization focused on issues related to civil liberties. During its history, the ACLU has aligned with the ideological Left, becoming a “hub of liberal activism” which declared its intent to spend $25 million attacking Republican candidates during the 2018 election cycle.[1]

    Labor union activist Roger Baldwin and a group of like-minded activist colleagues founded the ACLU in 1920. The ACLU advocated for special government protections specifically for left-leaning demographic and special interest groups such as immigrants, labor unions, LGBT people, the poor, prisoners, and the severely mentally ill.[2]"

    IMHO, somewhere along the line the American Civil Liberties Union morphed into the American Communist Liberal Union. The obsession with race and playing the race card is only one clue. I lost respect for the ACLU a long time ago.

    Just the title alone stopped me in my tracks - how is possible for them to loose their way when in truth, they've always been what they are today, it's just that people are paying attention now...IMHO, people really want to believe that all of a sudden these various systems have gone bad!!
