I thought it would be interesting and informative to illustrate what our Nation might be like if it caved into all of the radical ideals of the ACLU. It ended up quite scary, and if we were to follow the law of consequence to its end, I’m certain I have only scratched the surface.
On October 27, 1787, Alexander Hamilton predicted that a “dangerous ambition” would one day tyrannize the gangling young American Republic, all the while lurking “behind the specious mask of zeal for the rights of the people.” It could almost be said that Hamilton had a prophecy of the ACLU.
Our nation would be quite a scary and dangerous place if it were left in the hands of the ACLU. Creating an accurate picture of what our nation would be like is complicated by the inconsistencies in the ACLU’s philosophy, but one can conclude that it would definitely be a much more dangerous society to live in.
To begin with, if our nation were under the ACLU’s ideas, national sovereignty would be no more. Our constitution would become obsolete and superceded by International law. This would completely undermine national security, which the ACLU is constantly at odds with.
For instance, the ACLU filed a formal complaint with the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention against the United States, stating that the United States violated international law when it detained 765 Arab Americans and Muslims for security reasons after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack on our nation. Eventually, 478 were deported. ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero said, â€œWith todayâ€™s action, we are sending a strong message of solidarity to advocates in other countries who have decried the impact of U.S. policies on the human rights of their citizens. We are filing this complaint before the United Nations to ensure that U.S. policies and practices reflect not just domestic constitutional standards, but accepted international human rights principles regarding liberty and its deprivations.â€Source
Since the 5th amendment is pretty much already gone under judicial tyranny, one of the first things you can kiss goodbye is the 2nd amendment. The U.N. are already pushing for international gun control laws, and you can bet the ACLU won’t fight against that.
ACLU POLICY â€œThe ACLU agrees with the Supreme Courtâ€™s long-standing interpretation of the Second Amendment [as set forth in the 1939 case, U.S. v. Miller] that the individualâ€™s right to bear arms applies only to the preservation or efficiency of a well-regulated militia. Except for lawful police and military purposes, the possession of weapons by individuals is not constitutionally protected. Therefore, there is no constitutional impediment to the regulation of firearms.â€ â€“Policy #47
Without any means to protect ourselves, let’s take a look at crime in the world of the ACLU. To begin with, many of our current crimes would no longer be considered so. The ACLU doesnâ€™t belive in zoning laws, and does believe in fully legalalized, and unregulated prostitution. So there wouldnâ€™t be any law that could keep a prostitution house from being a certain distance from your neighborhood, your Church, or your childâ€™s preschool. This is especially disturbing when the ACLU thinks child pornography distribution and possession should be legal. So, in the ACLU world, we would probably find it much like Amsterdam: child prostitution rampant. Under the ACLU, All drugs would be legal, and Capital Punishment would completely be abolished.
The 10th amendment would be gone, rendering all states rights to the international community. We would become a welfare state, with our taxes being used to redistribute wealth around the world, as long as the U.N. didn’t pocket it in scandals.
Freedom of religion would be eliminated. Churches would lose their tax exempt status, completely pushed out of the public sphere, and forced to comply with international laws that compromise their core values.
In spring 2003, a group from the United Nations Human Rights Commission, of which former ACLU officials Paul Hoffman and John Shattuck are a part, met and discussed a resolution to add â€œsexual orientationâ€ to the UNHRCâ€™s discrimination list. Homosexual activists at the meeting called for a â€œshowdown with religion,â€ clearly intending to use international law to silence religious speech that does not affirm homosexual behavior. Source
What a scary and dangerous place this would be if it were given over to the ACLU’s vision for America. In no way would it resemble what our founding father’s intended. For the sake of our children, and their children’s future, Americans can not sit idly by and allow the ACLU’s radical agenda to continue. Help us expose the ACLU’s radical agenda for the subversive danger it is. Get involved. Donate and support organizations like the Alliance Defense Fund and the ACLJ that are out there fighting the ACLU’s agenda. Contact your representatives and Senators and tell them to support the Constitution Restoration Act that would put an end to the use of foreign law in our courts. Tell them to support the The Public Expression of Religion Act which would put a stop to taxpayer funding of the ACLU in establishment clause cases. Sign Our Petition To Stop Taxpayer Funding Of The ACLU. Pray that America wakes up before its too late.
