Imagine an America in which a man who has sexually assaulted women sits on the highest court, wielding the power to judge the whole nation.Fewer than 24 hours after Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's testimony accusing Judge Kavanaugh of sexual assault, the Senate Judiciary Committee decided to plow through the confirmation process and vote to confirm him as our next Supreme Court Justice. At the eleventh hour, senators finally agreed to move forward with an FBI investigation before the full Senate vote.But Thursday's hearing, along with the inadequate investigation of the allegations of sexual misconduct have made this much clear: Kavanaugh cannot sit on the highest court of the land.We have high standards for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court. That standard is not met when there are credible allegations of sexual assault against a nominee. The burden of proof is on the nominee -- and Judge Kavanaugh has thus far failed to prove himself fit to serve.Our elected leaders are willing to more fully investigate the nominee for this lifetime appointment. This is the direct result of courageous people who've demanded justice. We the people will keep fighting back with everything we have. We're mobilizing the full force of the ACLU -- with millions of supporters like you -- to stop the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.The ACLU has argued in front of the Supreme Court more than any other private organization in our nearly 100-year history -- so we don't take this lightly. After hearing from both him and Dr. Blasey Ford, it became strikingly clear that this is not someone who can sit on the highest court for life and make decisions about our civil rights and liberties for generations to come. And he is certainly not someone who should be allowed to rule on the rights women have over their own bodies.Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee have shown us they don't take sexual assault allegations seriously, but we do. We must remind senators that they work for us -- and that we, the people, will not accept Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court Justice.Dr. Blasey Ford put everything on the line to perform her civic duty. Let that be an inspiration, because it's going to take every single one of us to stop Kavanaugh from sitting on the highest court of the land. Before the vote goes to the full Senate -- expected in just a week -- we're going to give this everything we've got. Stay tuned for more ways to fight back.Thanks for raising your voice,Anthony D. RomeroACLU Executive Director
Subject: SCOTUS nomination: Please Take the High RoadI was very disappointed to read that ACLU has issued press releases about the SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh prior to credible evidence or outcomes of investigations being available.ACLU should be about rights, due process, and evidence-based postitions.I have supported ACLU for years because ACLU does not take partisan positions and advocates for our legal rights.I am not a fan of this SCOTUS nominee. However, if he is ill-equipped, he should be dismissed on merit, not on the basis of heresay.I am very, very disappointed to see the ACLU become party to the heresay machine. The outcome does not justify the means if that means abrogating the PRINCIPLES of the ACLU.Please cancel my membership and monthly contribution auto-renewal.With sincerity,
Pretty shocked the ACLU of all organizations is taking this stand.
ACLU does not take partisan positions
They might privately imagine they have an opportunity maybe conceivably to get a more favorable nominee next year, if Democrats regain the Senate,
Next best thing for the GOP than a 6-3 majority is a 5-3 one. What I mean is: The GOP doesn't have to offer a nominee at all and the court can just keep on a truckin'
Well, it's egregious enough to explore whether it's fake news to elicit knee jerk reactions against the ACLU. If it isn't. holy moly.
They sold their soul to Soros for thirty pieces of silver
(I have been a monthly contributing member to ACLU for approximately 2 decades.)The penultimate straw:https://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/ACLU-sues-SF-police-claiming-unchecked-racism-in-13279819.php?t=71877638bb At a time when my city is a disaster zone because of violence and crime, the police department finally gets on top of cracking down on thugs and drug dealers only to be attacked by ACLU pushing more fake race hate fears. It is bad enough to see the deterioration around here and to hear ordinary people and families plea for the city to do something about the lawlessness, but to have ACLU try to racialize an issue of safety and crime is salt on the wound.The final straw: this email I received about an ACLU press release a couple days ago:Imagine an America in which a man who has s...

The letter written to the ACLU "Please cancel me and stop billing me" will not work. You will now have to go deep into your credit card, pay pal or bank accounts and click a bunch of stuff to stop them billing you.[...]
Abandoning the presumption of innocence is a really surprising position for the ACLU.
"ACLU Formally Opposes Kavanaugh, Citing Credible Sexual Assault Allegations & Partisan Temperament"
All of the vanguard institutions of the left are proving themselves incapable of taking a truly principled stand anymore.Now that is an interesting point. I noticed how some patnetters are claiming that this blog has "moved to the right."Maybe the patnetters are essentially the same, but the "left" has changed. For example, I do not think people have stopped believing in equal rights for all, private sector unions, Social Security, a true safety net, and so on. What is disagreed with is the left's support of wide open borders and the current guilty because accused treatment.of Kavanaugh.[...]

And it seems the extreme authoritarian-left bubble the bay area is in poisons the minds of otherwise sane people. I strongly believe they would have never posted such crap if they lived anywhere else in the US. But there's a reason why you never see anybody running around with a MAGA hat, there's a lynchmob mentality here for those who think politically different.
From the ACLU: "Imagine an America in which a man who has sexually assaulted women sits on the highest court"Woah, was Judge Kavanaugh convicted when I wasn't looking? Please try to regain your impartiality. I would like to believe in the ACLU, but you're spending your moral credibility faster than you think. Please, do the right thing, not the partisan thing.
I also wrote the ACLU fwiw:
They were quiet when Alex Jones was banned from Facebook, YouTube and Spotify.
Where was the ACLU then?
WillPowers says They were quiet when Alex Jones was banned from Facebook, YouTube and Spotify.Exactly. Where was the ACLU then?
