I stopped paying for a membership to the ACLU some years ago when their CEO was accused of corruption for padding his salary and benefits. Since then, I have never regretted that choice.
The latest ACLU misuse of donations has been its push against aggressive panhandling ordinances. Several such ordinances have been nixed by a federal court due to ACLU challenges. The ordinance in Lowell, Massachusetts was just ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge, who is following a Supreme Court ruling against abortion clinic buffer zones. You know, those safety zones which keep the potential religious assassins away from the doors of abortion clinics. Our largely Roman Catholic Supreme Court doesn't like those.
That's right. The same people who want to see women harassed at abortion clinics have opened the door for you to be harassed by anyone on a public street without you having the option of calling the police. Thanks, ACLU. You must be making those rich armchair Liberals very proud in their invulnerable SUV's as they ride around their economically gated communities.
