They Better Watch Out Or They Might Sue Themselves!

They've finally done it. The ACLU has censored themselves by drawing up "...standards, not yet promulgated, that would discourage public dissent on ACLU policies and forbid open criticism of anyone on the board or the staff." Nice. That's not all they've been up to either. Read the rest of John Leo's column here.

"The leadership decided against disciplinary action after the news media reported the story."

Hmmm... the American Civil Litigation Union?...

Next it'll be suing everyone who disagrees with anything they say.

I guess they don't consider Brandeis worth much.
"Fear of serious injury cannot alone justify suppression of free speech and assembly. Mean feared witches and burned women. It is the function of speech to free men from the bondage of irrational fears."
Now that's appropriate for people of open democracies.
Dare we suggest that the ACLU has a dispensation based upon fear of discovery; freeing the manipulator from disclosing its motives in manipulating the puppets (courts)?
