If I ignore the gratuitous Bush/Cheney bashing in the article above, I have to admit that I am simply consumed with admiration at the way the ACLU has hidden its socialist/totalitarian agenda under the guise of protecting "civil liberties".
It is mind-boggling to think that any rational person could take this organization seriously anymore, as it goes around trying to destroy America's cultural heritage and suppress free speech in a manner reminiscent of certain oppressive religions. Once it may have embraced classical liberal ideals; but then it took a very wrong turn and is now just another quasi-religious cult that owes allegience to the multiculti left.
The ACLU's position brings to mind this passage from Douglas Adams, who was writing about Vogon and other bad poetry:
Vogon poetry is of course the third worst in the Universe. The second worse is that of the Azgoths of Kria. During a recitation by their Poet Master Grunthos the Flatulent of his poem "Ode to a Small Lump of Green Putty I Found in My Armpit One Midsummer Morning" four of his audience died of internall hemorrhaging, and the President of the Mid-Gaactic ARts Nobbling Council survived by gnawing one of his own legs off. Grunthos is reported to have been "disappointed" by the poem's reception, and was about to embark on a reading of his twelve-book epic entitled My Favoite Bathtime Girgles when his own major intestine, in a desperate attempt to save life and civilization, leaped straight up and through his neck and throttled his brain. (Emphasis mine)
I suspect that the sad fate of Grunthos of Kria has already been shared by the leadership of the ACLU.
And that can only be a good thing for all freedom-loving human life and civilization.
Stop the ACLU has more.
