Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

Ah, the ACLU.  Such a tolerant  group of pisspots.

Seems the leader of one of their New Mexico chapters has joined the Minuteman Project, so they dumped the chapter.

The state organization suspended its Las Cruces chapter after learning that a member of the group’s board, Clifford Alford, was heading the formation of a Minuteman group in New Mexico.

Gary Mitchell, a Ruidoso attorney and president of the ACLU board of directors, said the suspension of the southern chapter was a technical move to make sure the leader of the New Mexico Minutemen, a civilian border patrol group, no longer had authority to act or speak on behalf of the ACLU.

I suppose that’s okay, given that the ACLU doesn’t have authority to speak or act on behalf of the American people.

“We will not tolerate racism and vigilantism in the leadership structure of our organization,” Mitchell told the Albuquerque Journal. “They are repugnant to the principles of civil liberties and the mission of the ACLU.”

Except when they’re perpetrated against the white Christian male, isn’t that right, Bitchell?

Alford has said he’s not a hateful vigilante and that he would like to see immigration policy reformed. He has said that if the federal government allowed more immigrant workers to enter the country legally, many problems on the border would be solved. He reportedly scouted the New Mexico-Mexico border two weeks ago for sites to station his 42 volunteers to detect illegal immigrants sneaking into the country. His group plans to offer food, water and medical aid while reporting the illegal immigrants to the U.S. Border Patrol.

Mitchell said the ACLU was not trying to muzzle Alford.

Gee, sure looks like it to me.

Here’s a hint, fellas:  If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, talks like a duck…

It is just a matter of not wanting him representing the ACLU in a leadership position.

Gee, why not, guys?  I thought you celebrated diversity.  I thought you people were tolerant.

Or maybe you’re just a bunch of asshatted fuckwits who need steel-toed boots shoved squarely up your asses.

When Alford refused to resign, the state board decided over the weekend to temporarily suspend the 14-member southern board until new elections are held. Mitchell said the ACLU’s rules do not provide a means for removing a single board member, so the entire board had to be suspended.

“We are not going to tolerate anyone depriving anyone of liberty without due process of law…”

“Even if we have to squash dissent  to do it!!!”

not going to tolerate vigilante groups on the border without speaking out against them and without monitoring,” Mitchell said.

Yeah, and they’ll do it from the comfort of their local Starbucks.  Not like they have the balls to actually confront  the Minutemen, y’know.

Cowardly little hypocritical shits…

    I’m sorry, what I meant to say was:

    Their action should surprise no one, after all, the whole purpose of the ACLU is to bring about communism in the USA.
