Liberals Lose Their MINDS When ACLU Defends White Nationalists’ Rights

EDITOR’S NOTE: This post contains profanity.

(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) The American Civil Liberties Union is staying true to its principles by defending white nationalists’ First Amendment rights, and progressives are horrified.

Liberals Lose Their MINDS When ACLU Defends White Nationalists' Rights

White nationalist Jason Kessler planned to host his “Unite the Right” rally on August 12 at Emancipation Park in Charlottesville, Virginia. Charlottesville City Manager Maurice Jones halted the event when he announced on August 7 that the event could only be held at McIntire Park, NBC29 reported.

Kessler said he wants the event at Emancipation Park to honor a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. He has refused to move the event and plans to battle Charlottesville in court if his right to peaceably assemble is denied.

The ACLU and the Rutherford Institute released a joint letter demanding First Amendment protections.

“As organizations committed to protecting constitutional and civil rights, we demand that the city withdraw its letter to Jason Kessler of August 7, 2017, revoking and otherwise rescinding the permit for a demonstration in Emancipation Park on August 12, 2017, and provide assurances that the city will allow the ‘Unite the Right’ demonstration as previously planned and approved by operation of law.”

The ACLU took flak from the Left on Twitter for defending Kessler’s rights, with many asking for the return of their past contributions to the organization:

Some people on Twitter viewed this as hypocrisy on the part of the former ACLU supporters.

The ACLU and the Rutherford Institute said they would file a lawsuit against Charlottesville if they do not allow the event to be held at Emancipation Park.

    For years I have been contending that the Left thinks that the concept of rights applies only to them. QED.

    • Polly Dreitzler

      The left DOES think the concept of rights applies only to them and that laws only apply to conservatives. That is obvious from the fact that HRC is still out of jail and walking around in public! 😉 It’s about time the ACLU stopped being the army of the leftists only.

      • Sylvia Avila

        Yes, ACLU finally did the right thing!

    • Jim Hall

      No, they think it should apply to everyone but that they are the only ones who know & get to decide what is right and that anyone who disagrees with them is subhuman and lower than whale s**t. They think the rest of us are too simple minded to understand the nuances of their stand. And they obviously do not understand the meaning of hypocrisy…

    • Sylvia Avila

      yes, the are very Evil indeed!

  • Nina Ferguson

    It was my understanding that the ACLU was designed to help anyone who was being discriminated against, be they black, white, brown or yellow. Not just leftists, but the person being discriminated against.

    • Naval Lint

      That’ d how it was DESIGNED…but that’s NOT how it operates. They’re just trying to jump on the TRUMP TRAIN!!

    • Jim Hall

      Roy says that doesn’t include NAZIs nor confederate sympathizers. He says free speech doesn’t include deplorables either I’d bet. Two kinds of people in the world. Those who divide people into groups of two and those who don’t. Two kinds of people in the world, those who deserve rights & those who don’t???

  • Roy Veteto

    i don’t know why anyone is surprised over this for back in the 1970’s the aclu represented n a z i s who wanted to have a rally in skokie , illinois

  • Snaps

    The liberals are shocked because the ACLU rarely defends the civil liberties of the right.

    • Sylvia Avila

      Right you are! But it’s about time ACLU did their job Right!

  • GNTownsend

    Keep in mind the ACLU only defends those portions of the Constitution which it likes. They totally ignore the 2nd Amendment entirely.

    • Jackalyn Morrison

      You got that right

  • Warren Blum

    I’d like 1 minute with the head libtard, Chuck Schumer, as Id beat him to a pulp.

    • Louie Rey

      Hi Warren. I heard that his real name is Schmuck Tumor. I could be wrong.

    • DrBarbara

      Oh no! You mustn’t do that, you’ll make him cry again.

    • Jeanna Green

      he is not worth it. Just open a homeless camp, safe injection site, and other feel good bad ideas that usually don’t work in his neighborhood. None of the Politicians on either side don’t seem to like to follow the same laws they put on us, just look at what they did when the affordable care act (Obummbercare) was passed. They passed it to where they and the people that work for them got super rebates that the Original American could never get.

  • Spunky

    Just shows how bright the left is – they think civil liberties are just for them – It is how they really think

  • RealAmerican407

    Oh boy the irony. The left has no principles and no standards.

  • Gregg Parker

    Who wants those pigs saying things out of character? Shut up losers, we’ve been doing just fine without you agreeing with anything we hold as truth for decades. Piss off!

  • Naval Lint

    The ACLU sees the writing on the wall…but it’s too late for them. They have surrendered any ability to claim non-bias in the past 20 years.

  • Mad Scientist

    My, my. Just another example of how one set of rules applies to the progressive left and another set applies to everyone else.

  • wandamurline

    Wow….never saw that one coming….the ACLU usually is against anything that makes sense. The fact that the statue is still there is comforting as so many of these have been removed by the progressive liberal nutwads…..taking down statues of history is just as bad as ISIS destroying all of the ancient statues and writings in the middle east because it offends them.

  • Joel Morris

    I will only say I am SHOCKED. There must be some sinister reason for this.

  • kassa1

    And it has been with places like southern wall justice or whatever the communist organization is. The left has gotten free reign with everything rape robbery murder you name it they got by with it well if a white guy jaywalks they want to hang and it has been with places like southern wall justice or whatever the communist organization is. The left has gotten free reign with everything rape robbery murder you name it they got Bywood well if a white guy jaywalks they want to hang him !

    • IrreverentOne

      Did you bother to actually read what you posted?

  • David Henderson

    I really think we need to deport all liberals as traitors to the Constitution…and freedom in general….crybaby asshats..

  • Flyby

    To the liberals it’s akin to hearing that you were adopted.

  • Worried Vet

    Its going to get worse since they have been brainwashed since elementary school and more are becoming older. There have been two sets of rules for decades and its up to us to change that. Trump is a good start.

    • rnoel

      Yes they have been brainwashed and indoctrinated since elementary school so now we have an entire nation that is anti-American in their beliefs. They took down America without firing a single shot!

  • Henry Gregg Nash

    LOL, Enuff said!

  • Bill Harrison

    Now start suing schools that and state governments that allow Islamic favoritism while attacking anything Christian.

  • ImOffendedTreatMeSpecial

    The left is all for free speech, as long as it is speech they agree with.

  • Louie Rey

    Thank God that the Left is the “tolerant” party. Could you imagine what it’d be like if they actually disagreed with you (he said facetiously)? Freedom of Speech (and Peaceful Assembly and Religion, etc., etc.) is fine only as long as all of these “rights” fall into line with what the Left supports. If not then those freedoms aren’t so free. Pathetic.

  • Sueja

    Finally. Let’s see if they keep defending everyone’s rights. They usually don’t so I have my doubts

  • Irredeemably Deplorable

    LOL

  • Ken V

    The left is on its way out.. nothing but communists and progressives..

  • Maynard

    When I read this I almost had a coronary. I had never heard of the ACLU doing anything for anyone to the right center far left. Maybe I will contribute now that they seem to want to, attempt to, consider, doing what their name implies.

  • katfan

    I am not a fan of the “White Nationalist Organization” but if “Black Lives Matters” organization can hold protests, why is a “White Lives Matter” protest banned? You can’t have it both ways. This is the first time the ACLU (in my memory) has supported anything but liberal causes. If civil liberties apply to all Americans, then the ACLU should do more of this and support the rights of all Americans.

  • Joe Samo

    Minds…liberals have no minds.
