    ACLU Flips on COVID Mandate

    The ACLU, Prior to COVID, Denounced Mandates and Coercive Measures to Fight Pandemics

    In a New York Times op-ed this week, the group completely reversed its views, arguing vaccine mandates help civil liberties and bodily autonomy "is not absolute."

    The op-ed sounds like it was written by an NSA official justifying the need for mass surveillance (yes, fine, your privacy is important but it is not absolute; your privacy rights are outweighed by public safety; we are spying on you for your own good). And the op-ed appropriately ends with this perfect Orwellian flourish: “We care deeply about civil liberties and civil rights for all — which is precisely why we support vaccine mandates.”

    What makes the ACLU's position so remarkable — besides the inherent shock of a civil liberties organization championing state mandates overriding individual choice — is that, very recently, the same group warned of the grave dangers of the very mindset it is now pushing. In 2008, the ACLU published a comprehensive report on pandemics which had one primary purpose: to denounce as dangerous and unnecessary attempts by the state to mandate, coerce, and control in the name of protecting the public from pandemics.
    If the stampman tells you to kiss his ass, shall he get away with it and live? Don't let your courage cool, or a few bullies scare you. We've nothing to fear but slavery. Love your liberty, and fight for it like men who know its value. Once lost it will never, never be regained.
    -Hugh Ledlie, 1774.

    Pathetic. Of course, in the alternate universe where Trump stayed in office and mandated vaccinations, the ACLU would be totally against them.

    Whereas the NRA started with good intentions and morphed into an arm of the RNC, the ACLU is just an arm of the DNC.

    Left, Right, Left, Right march to tyranny.
    "And now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works." - Bastiat

    The ACLU neither fears nor respects the People.

    It is appallingly obvious the ACLU does not want to be shut down by the current Regime. Their behavior is a reflexive response to offer their obedience.

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    No longer? The ACLU was formed by Trostkyites and American communists.
    "For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy ... Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed."

    The crony kleptocracy is huge, and the ACLU is just a very small piece of it. But they know where their bread is buttered.

    Freedom will be stolen from you in a heartbeat if you do not behave as a wild and ravening beast pursuant to its protection.

    "Government" is naught but a mental construct, a script to which people meekly accept and play out their assigned roles by those with no authority to dictate such.

    Pray for reset.

    The ACLU has done some good things. But that is twentieth century history. Three or four decades later, there's no reason to believe anyone who was involved in any of them is still with the organization.
