Stop The ACLU Blogburst

One of the purposes of the Constitution is to ensure domestic tranquility. Due process, the Fifth Amendment right, is a procedural right, one that defines the methods that can properly be used to ensure domestic tranquility. Without both, there can be no liberty. Domestic tranquility can easily be achieved without respect for due process, as dictatorships throughout history have shown. It is also quite possible to have a society where due process is respected-even considered sacrosanct-and still lack for domestic tranquility. The latter predicament more closely resembles the situation in the United States today.Source

The ACLU's skewed views toward crime can also be seen in its approach toward crime victims. The ACLU has shown very little interest in the rights of crime victims. When it comes down to it, the rights of criminals seem to always override the rights of the victims. For example, the ACLU opposes the use of a crime victim impact statement in capital sentencing because it "unconstitutionally requires consideration of factors which have no bearing on the defendant's responsibility or guilt." Of course the courts have ruled otherwise.

The ACLU's approach to crime, its prevention, and punishment clearly are not in the mainstream opinion of most Americans. The organization has consistently been an adversary of law enforcement. The Union's perspective is almost entirely focused on the criminal which makes many people conclude that rather being a defender of civil liberties, the ACLU is actually the champion of criminal liberties.

The ACLU's pandering to criminals, lack of interest in true victims, and opposition to law enforcement are not solutions to society's burden with crime. I advise everyone to use common sense, and not to follow the extreme positions of the ACLU when it comes to preventing and punishing crime.

The ACLU is anti-civilization, that I know. Why?, I don't know. It is not sane, reasonable, rational or logical. Just sick!

We have to be aware that the the label American Civil Liberties Union is a misnomer, it is a Communist organization founded by Communist Roger Baldwin largely funded by suits won under pro-bono status where the ACLU is awarded court costs, lawyer fees and other monetary awards, therefore it is not pro-bono. It's objective is to establish an athiest Communist country. Remember Lynne Stewart who was helping the terrorist Sheik, Omar Abdul Rahman and his terrorist organization, she was a prominent member of the National Lawyers Guild, this is the twin to the ACLU, both organizations work overtime to undermine this country, it's constituition and it's justice system both need to be stopped. Even more insidious is the DSA and the so called Congressional Progressive Caucus which is a front for Socialist Bernie Sanders' Socialist organization in Congress of which Senator Pelosi is a member. All are working to get their people into the judiciary and the three branches of government.
