Anti-ACLU Rant of the Week 4/28/05
Giving time over to Jay777 and the Stop the ACLU blog:
This week's anti-ACLU rant concerns the actions of the ACLU in aiding and abetting terrorists.
First, for a unique, and thought-provoking, view of how the TSA is failing to secure our skies, read this book:
Flying Blind by Michael Smerconish
Now, some pointers on how the ACLU is destroying our fight against terror:
- As many of you know, I support the Minuteman Project. These volunteers are sitting on our Southern border, not only stemming the tide of illegal aliens, but also those of Middle Eastern origin, attempting to sneak in with them. Not surprisingly, the ACLU is challenging the Minutemen in court to stop their actions. (read more here)
- This piece from Boston.com: NEW YORK -- The American Civil Liberties Union has turned down $1.15 million in funding from the Ford and Rockefeller foundations, saying new anti-terrorism restrictions demanded by the institutions make it unable to accept their funds. (snip) The ACLU's move is an apparent reaction to new restrictive language by both foundations. The Ford Foundation now bars recipients of its funds from engaging in any activity that "promotes violence, terrorism, bigotry, or the destruction of any state." The Rockefeller Foundation's provisions state that recipients of its funds may not "directly or indirectly engage in, promote, or support other organizations or individuals who engage in or promote terrorist activity."
- MEDIC MUSING: Could that be because the ACLU has, in the past, defended groups such as the PLO and people such as Moammar Ghaddaffi and Yasser Arafat?
- This piece from Front Page Magazine: The ACLU's War Against National Security (snip) "After 9-11, the ACLU and its leftist cohorts spearheaded a movement to depict the US in general and the airline industry in particular as a snake pit of bigoted vipers eager to abuse and humiliate Muslims and Middle Easterners. The statistics, however, tell quite another story. During the nine months immediately following 9-11, the ADC received a mere 60 reports of incidents where airline security personnel prevented "Arab-looking" male passengers from flying as scheduled. (Snip)From 9-11 to the present day, the ACLU has vigorously opposed every governmental attempt to more effectively protect the American people's security. (Again,..read "Flying Blind!")
