ACLU Defends Bill Of Rights?

There is an article from January 2004 that reports the ACLU came to the defense of talk show host Rush Limbaugh and asserted that Limbaugh’s rights were violated when his medical records were released. The ACLU is a very liberal organization and they would be unlikely to take a case such as this so I can only surmise that they wanted high profile exposure. The interesting thing about the case is the statement by the ACLU:

“It may seem odd that the ACLU has come to the defense of Rush Limbaugh,” Howard Simon, executive director of the ACLU of Florida, said in a statement. “But we have always said that the ACLU’s real client is the Bill of Rights, and we will continue to safeguard the values of equality, fairness and privacy for everyone, regardless of race, economic status or political point of view.”

The ACLU might like to explain how they always end up on the wrong side of the Bill of Rights. Why do they support groups who take away our rights under the First and Second Amendments? How do they explain making us take all references to religion out of Christmas displays? How do they explain supporting taking UNDER GOD out of the Pledge? Why does the ACLU consider quarantine of people with deadly contagious diseases a violation of their rights when it is in the best interest of the general public? If the ACLU is concerned about the Constitution why do they oppose making people show an ID before they vote? Next thing you know they will oppose IDs prior to getting on an airplane.

The ACLU has never been for the rights of Americans. It is constantly fighting against our very rights and the major reason is that they make millions of dollars off the taxpayer. We need to change the law to prevent them from profiting from ventures that deny us our rights, not preserve them.

The story is here.
Stop the ACLU has a ton of items demonstrating the ACLU’s attack on our rights.
