ACLU: Drivers licenses are a right

Yet another in a long line of moonbattery from the ACLU:

Many of the cases already have been resolved, but the ACLU of Indiana filed suit Friday in Marion Superior Court and plans to seek an injunction to make sure no licenses are revoked without hearings, the group’s legal director said.

“What the BMV is doing is taking legally an entitlement from thousands of people,” the ACLU’s Ken Falk said. “You’re entitled to have a driver’s license and the state can’t come and take it away from you.

I don’t know how to break it to you rocket scientists at the ACLU, but the state can “come and take it away from you”!  If you’re convicted of a DUI, you can lose your license.  If you try to buy alcohol or cigarettes and you’re underage, you can lose your license.  If you go to get it renewed and you fail the driving exam, you can lose your license. If you obtained a drivers license under false pretense, you can lose your license.

ACLU: Public bathroom stall sex is “private”

Just when I thought that the ACLU (A$$holes, Commies, and Leftists United) couldn’t get any more depraved than they were, they prove me wrong.  I really don’t know why I’m shocked, considering that these reprobates argued that we have a constitutional right to kiddie p0rn.  Anywho, from the AP:

In an effort to help Sen. Larry Craig, the American Civil Liberties Union is arguing that people who have sex in public bathrooms have an expectation of privacy.

Craig, of Idaho, is asking the Minnesota Court of Appeals to let him withdraw his guilty plea to disorderly conduct stemming from a bathroom sex sting at the Minneapolis airport.

The ACLU filed a brief Tuesday supporting Craig. It cited a Minnesota Supreme Court ruling 38 years ago that found that people who have sex in closed stalls in public restrooms “have a reasonable expectation of privacy.”  (Leave it to Minnesota to find this to be a “right”! – Ed.)

The ACLU argued that even if Craig was inviting the officer to have sex, his actions wouldn’t be illegal.

“The government cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Senator Craig was inviting the undercover officer to engage in anything other than sexual intimacy that would not have called attention to itself in a closed stall in the public restroom,” the ACLU wrote in its brief.

The ACLU also noted that Craig was originally charged with interference with privacy, which it said was an admission by the state that people in the bathroom stall expect privacy.  (And other people in the public bathroom expect to not have to deal with hearing or seeing people having sex while they’re in the john! What about THEIR expectations, ACLU? – Ed.)

Got that?  If Junior has to go to the little boy’s room to tinkle, and two people are going at it in a bathroom stall next to him, he just needs to “man up” and deal with it.  Thanks for the clarification, ACLU.

I don’t care if the stall occupants are of the same or different genders.  There is a definite compelling government interest to prohibit people from boinking in public places…period.  Public restrooms are made for washing up or relieving yourself of bodily waste…and nothing else!  Get a hotel room, you pervs.

Former editor takes her activism from the paper to the ACLU

It’s obvious that today’s fishwraps have abandoned all pretense of objectivity in order to advance agendas.  Don’t believe me?  Take it from the proverbial horse’s mouth:

Terri Burke, former editor of the Abilene Reporter-News, has been named executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas.

Burke, 56, will begin work at the ACLU of Texas on Tuesday. Her duties will include lobbying, fundraising, administering the organization and communicating with the public.

Burke said her new job seems like a continuation of her work in the newspaper business.

“I wanted to be a journalist because I thought journalism was a way to further the democratic process,” Burke said. “At its heart, journalism is about the First Amendment. All my life, I’ve been interested in those kinds of issues.” 

Let’s get one thing perfectly clear: the role of journalism is not to “further the democratic process”, but to pursue newsworthy stories and report them objectively and without prejudice, letting facts speak for themselves.  This chick clearly implies that she saw her role as a journo to be a political one.

Quips Bryan:

If there’s irony to be found here, it’s in the fact that the ACLU often uses the courts not to further the democratic process, but to destroy it. 

Nope…no liberal media bias!

Former VA ACLU prez: I have kiddie porn, and it should be legal!

If you ever had any doubts as to the depravity that exists in the peabrained gourds of ACLU types, you need look no further than Virginia. Hat tip to Texas Rainmaker:

Federal agents arrested Charles Rust-Tierney, the former president of the Virginia chapter of the ACLU, Friday in Arlington for allegedly possessing child pornography.

According to a criminal complaint obtained by ABC News, Rust-Tierney allegedly used his e-mail address and credit card to subscribe to and access a child pornography website.

The complaint states that federal investigations into child pornography websites revealed that “Charles Rust-Tierney has subscribed to multiple child pornography website over a period of years.”

As recently as last October, the complaint alleges, “Rust-Tierney purchased access to a group of hardcore commercial child pornography websites.”

Allahpundit says:

“He could be writing a book on child abuse, say, and wanted to see just how bad it can get.

But if he’s writing a book, he’s researching it awfully thoroughly.”

This story would explain why the ACLU is so eager to argue that child porn should be legalized. It probably also explains why Rust-Tierney once argued against restricting Internet access in public libraries in Virginia (hat tip: StopTheACLU):

“Recognizing that individuals will continue to behave responsibly and appropriately while in the library, the default should be maximum, unrestricted access to the valuable resources of the Internet.”

Child porn = valuable resources? Be sure to use that line in Cell block C when you get there…they’ll love it.

The ACLU: Pedophiles’ best friend!
