Is the ACLU good for America?

The editors at the National Review say the ACLU is hypocritical in how the organization chooses which rights it wants to defend. The ACLU's critics say the non-profit is dedicated to pushing a radical liberal agenda on the United States. The ACLU chooses to ignore the Second Amendment completely and while a staunch defender of free speech, the organization has refused to defend religious choice and beliefs. 

The ACLU is here involved in a pitiless assault on one of the most fundamental of human rights, the right to freedom of conscience — this from an organization that still describes itself as “the nation’s premier defender of liberty and individual freedom.” If individual freedom means anything at all, it must mean the freedom at least to abstain from participation in bloodletting — something the ACLU itself once appreciated, when the bloodletting was being done in Vietnam and the organization was defending draft resisters. It is difficult to imagine a consistent principle by which moral objections to military service have standing and the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty does not. The pro-abortion gang likes to say: “If you don’t like abortion, don’t have one.” But it does not seem to have occurred to them that if they don’t like Catholic hospitals, they should go somewhere else.

The ACLU has a long history of defending the most offensive and worst of American society as a matter of principle. The ACLU has defended Nazis, the KKK and a long list of other individuals whose right to free speech has been threatened. The ACLU may not be perfect, but it is a principled organization that has been consistent in standing up for the rights of all Americans. 

Ryan Kiesel, director of ACLU's Oklahoma office, said: As the fates of the students at the center of this controversy unfold, we encourage the administration to demonstrate their commitment to due process; for it is often in protecting the rights of the very worst, we are able to demonstrate our fullest commitment to justice."
