ACLU, Foley, NAMBLA, and Linkfest

And a happy Thursday to all.

Here's a random thought. Why isn't the ALCU supporting Mark Foley? As far as we know, he broke no laws, he was just engaging in Free Speech, to use the ACLU's own words. To you and me, those words were despicable, disgusting, and unseemly, to use just a few adjectives. But to the ACLU, they were treasured Free Speech.

How do I know? Let's look at the ACLU's words on their Frequently Asked Questions page:

Why did the ACLU defend NAMBLA? (North American Man Boy Love Association)

In representing NAMBLA, the ACLU does not advocate sexual relationships between adults and children. What we do advocate is robust freedom of speech. This lawsuit strikes at the heart of freedom of speech. The defense of freedom of speech is most critical when the message is one most people find repulsive. For more information, please read the ACLU's press release.

To repeat, they say they do not approve of the sexual relationships, but of the Free Speech. Isn't that what Foley was engaged in, to the ACLU's point of view? There was no actual sexual relationship between Foley and minors, or those below the statutory limit – that we know about- so the ACLU should support him.

And, if the ACLU should support him, so should those who support the ACLU, primarily those on the Left. Foley was just engaging in Free Speech, right? Despicable, unprofessional, immoral Free Speech, but Free Speech none the less.

Rather a bit of a conundrum, eh?

Random thought: the dems are all worked up in fake anger over Foley, yet have no problem with Ted "Swimmer" Kennedy, Robert "KKK" Byrd, or stuff like this:

    I just wanted to respond to Capt’n Teach’s post about the ACLU and Mark Foley, and why he thinks they should defend him, given their defense of NAMBLA. He begins by writing:

  7. Interesting point you make, but unfortunately does not fit within their logical parameters.

    The ACLU claims it is respecting “free” speech, yet the speech of people like members of NAMBLA is not just speech; it’s a way of life and a strong belief that they are probably active in.

    This is one of the many ways the ACLU has it wrong; NAMBLA may be talking (free speech style and all), but they are speaking about actions/activities.

    I detest the ACLU and anything assbackwards

    toutcute only got it partially right. The ACLU hides under the banner of supporting “freedom of speech” to promote harm-causing speech and to silence speech that criticizes how corrupt and violent liberals have become.

    If the ACLU were about protecting “ideas,” they would have jumped against the homo supes and activists in SF in the radio talk show controversy:
