Public School Builds Muslim Prayer Into Curriculum: ACLU Silent

The ACLU will sue a school at the slightest sign of Christian anything.  Ten Commandments?  Tear it down!  Kids bring Bibles to school?  Throw them in the garbage in threaten to have them taken from their parents!  Mention Christmas at Christmas time?  Unthinkable!  After all, the schools are public, and there is that mythical “separation of Church and State.”  I mean, it doesn’t actually appear in the Constitution, but if it’s about Jesus, it simply cannot appear in public.  Yes sir!  That Jesus cannot be mentioned at all, after all, the public schools cannot promote religion, right? Well, if the […]

Did the ACLU Help Enable Adam Lanza by Blocking Changes to Mental Health Treatment Laws?

While the liberals are now operating in the open, tying to use the deaths of children to satisfy their long term goal of disarming the public, other factors are also being considered, but hardly covered.  It seems that the ACLU may have given Adam Lanza an “assist” in committing the mass shooting at Sandy Hook.  For the details, here is some more from SooperMexican Fox News reports on the motive of the mentally disturbed Connecticut murderer [emphasis added]: Adam Lanza, 20, targeted Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown after killing his mother early Friday because he believed she loved the school “more than […]

Fighting Words

Despite what some of my less than tolerant liberal acquaintances may believe, my military experience does not date back to the era of hardtack and beans — soldiers in the field in my day supped on such culinary catastrophes as ham and chopped eggs delivered in an olive-drab tin can laboriously broached (especially when the icy January winds that regularly blast through the Fulda Gap have demobilized your every digit) by the ubiquitous P-38 (OPENER, CAN, HAND, FOLDING, TYPE I).  The quality of these antique military victuals may be adduced by the fact that everyone’s favorite item in a case of C-rations was generally the […]

The Utility of Free Speech Redux

govt-censorship

If you read the recent post, From The Front Lines of the Culture Wars: Student Disciplined for Thinking Homosexuality is Wrong, you would have seen an interesting exchange between Harrison, of  Capitol Commentary, and myself.  While we happen to disagree on that topic, I consider him to be a good blogger, who often asks us to question some core beliefs.  Our exchange reminded me of the following, which was originally posted on September 29, 2009.   As we all know, freedom of speech is under attack.  Mark Lloyd proposes to replace privately owned media with a government approved and moderated PBS.  Cass Sustein and Henry Waxman have […]

Freedom vs. Security: Where Do You Stand?

war-is-peace-freedom-is-slavery-ignorance-is-strength

Since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, we have witnessed a frightening trend in which we Americans have been willing to exchange our constitutionally protected freedoms for supposed improvements to our security. The Patriot Act and its ramifications, since enacted by President Bush, is a case in point. For much of my nearly 19 years in Venezuela, my only source of news about the United States was the little bit of superficial coverage provided by CNN Español. I usually didn’t pay much attention to it. But after the attacks of September 11, 2011,  I was glued to CNN Español for weeks. I remember when […]

Culture Wars: It's Anti-Christian Graduation Time

One of the first culture war posts I did at the the original Conservative Hideout was about a two high school classes that defied the ACLU by doing a prayer at their graduation ceremonies. Here’s a somewhat “stale” story, but I thinks it’s worth visiting.  It was originally covered by World net Daily here. Members of the graduating class of 2009 at Florida’s Pace High School have expressed their objections to ACLU restrictions on statements of religious faith at their school by rising up en masse at their ceremony and reciting the Lord’s Prayer. The incident happened just days ago, but has […]

More on the Fate of Useful Idiots

After republishing Yuri Bezmenov’s videos, I decided to see if there were more.  I found another that expands on destablization. Disclaimer: Conjecture follows What sticks out for me is how very well this all compares to what is happening now.  There have been outside influences “inserted” into our society.  Whether it is Move  On, Think Regress, organized labor, the organizations formerly known as ACORN, Common Cause, ACLU, SPLC, and so on, all are designed to disrupt and destroy  our Republic.  These organizations  are causing disorder, and are simply making our free society increasingly impossible to function.  Any of the organizations […]

Blog Focus:The ACLU's Communist History Confirmed

I know, big surprise.  But, documents have emerged that indicate the the early ACLU has a rather cozy relationship with the Communist Party.  Bunkerville has the scoop. Anyone out there who is a history buff, or has interest in the ACLU and its roots, will find this post from the Daily Caller a real find. What has been suspected for a long time, has now seen the light of day.  Here tis: Noted author Paul Kengor has unearthed declassified letters and other documents in the Soviet Comintern archives linking early leaders of the ACLU with the Communist Party. Kengor found a May […]

A Call to Action: ACLU Threatens to Sue

ACLU Founder, Roger Baldwin, has been reliably quoted as saying the following… I have continued directing the unpopular fight for the rights of agitation, as Director of the American Civil Liberties Union … I have been to Europe several times, mostly in connection with international radical activities, chiefly against war, fascism and imperialism; and have traveled constantly in the United States to areas of conflict over workers’ rights to strike and organize. My chief aversion is the system of greed, private greed, private profit, privilege and violence which makes up the control of the world today, and which has brought […]

The Utility of Free Speech

As we all know, freedom of speech is under attack.  Mark Lloyd proposes to replace privately owned media with a government approved and moderated PBS.  Cass Sustein and Henry Waxman have both floated the idea of regulating Internet content.  Speech codes on campus restrict the free flows of ideas on college campuses.  The ACLU threatens to sue kids that pray at graduation ceremonies.  People are threatened if they pray in public.  Conversely, the left is able to engage in whatever outrageous activity they choose, and even do what they accuse the right of doing.  The double standard is sometimes astounding. […]

More Resistance: This Time, From the Kids!

Here’s a somewhat “stale” story, but I thinks it’s worth visiting.  It was originally covered by World net Daily here. Members of the graduating class of 2009 at Florida’s Pace High School have expressed their objections to ACLU restrictions on statements of religious faith at their school by rising up en masse at their ceremony and reciting the Lord’s Prayer. The incident happened just days ago, but has been virtually ignored by media outlets throughout the region, according to officials with Liberty Counsel, a legal team representing Principal Frank Lay and teacher Michelle Winkler in their battle with the ACLU, […]
